3D models


Salaamun Alaykum

Is making 3D models of people or animals out of clay haraam? If so, would that include childrens play toys like ‘Play Doh’?

Also, is using dice in games like snakes and ladders haraam?


1. Ayatullah Sistani: Based on obligatory precaution, it is not permitted. Yes, it does include children play toys.

Persian – Question and Answers

However, you can refer to other Marja like Aytaullah Makarim who sees no problem in children play toys.

2. It is not haram as the dices are not exclusive tools just used for gambling.
