Girls playing with dolls

Q: What is the ruling on girls' playing with plastic dolls modeled after real girls whom Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He) created. May Allah be far Exalted from what they make. Truly, He is the Only Creator and to Him is worship and lordship!

A: The basic ruling is that all images of things that have souls are unlawful according to the religious proofs that prohibit them. As for images of things that do not have a soul such as trees, buildings, and the like, there is no harm in making toys after them.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
