Is it permissible to sell ornaments, Noel toys, turkey, etc. due to New Year? Is the money obtained from them halal?

The Details of the Question

Is it permissible for religious toy and accessory sellers to sell Santa Clause toys, party hats and pine trees with the thought, "if we do not sell them, others sell them"?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

1. It is haram to commit a bad deed; similarly, it is not permissible to cause a bad deed. Therefore, a person will be held responsible if he helps something like that. As a matter of fact, most of the scholars say something like that is haram.

2. However, it is not haram to sell things that can be used in both haram and halal ways like computers and television sets.
