Trading musical instruments for charity


Asslamu alaikum, I have 2 guitars I received before I stopped listening to music. Would it be permissible to trade these for charitable donations (in lieu of selling them), to donate them, or is it better to throw in the garbage? I figured If I exchange them for donations to charity, it will go to a good cause from a person who would have purchased them at a store anyway. Jazakallah kheir!


Waalykum salam 

Thank you for your question
You can certainly sell it off and use the money for charity. A very noble thing indeed

Kind regards
