Ruling 2094

If a person carries out a transaction with a mumayyiz child when transactions with such a child are not valid, and the child destroys the commodity or the money that he gave him, he can claim it from the child’s guardian or from the child himself after he becomes bāligh. And if the child is not mumayyiz or he is mumayyiz but does not destroy the property himself but rather it is destroyed while it is with him, albeit as a result of his negligence or dissipation, he is not responsible (ḍāmin) for it.
