We were given as gifts some Indian statues. One was made from stone which we have put outside in the shed, one is made from sandal wood and one is a head of Buddha made from wood. We were thinking of giving it to Hindus. Is it permissible or should we throw them?
From an incident occurred between the Prophet (s) and Umar (ra) we
conclude that it is permissible to give haram gifts to a polytheist.
(Bukhari, 837, 896)
