    Title: Carved Buddha statue

    Question: My customer lost a supplier who used to make carved Buddha jewelry statue so they asked me to source for them. I always refused them that I do not make statue or any living creature jewelry but they ask me to help them since I have good sourcing in China and I found a supplier in China you makes these carving. So my question is: (1) Do business transaction with profit 2) Do as a favor without any profit 3) Or just say no.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1156/899/B=9/1434) It is unlawful to carve the statue or the picture of any living creature or get it prepared by someone else and deal in the same with profit or without profit. You should forbid him trusting in Allah and always make the intention of halal and lawful source of income.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
