Q. Is it permissible to buy products which has an animate label on it?
A. There are many products available in the market Today which have animate pictures printed or labelled on them. This becomes more challenging to avoid especially when buying products, which are required on a daily basis for e.g. milk, bread, butter etc.
Whilst the ideal would be to avoid buying such products, the purpose of buying such products is not the animate nature of the product; rather it is the actual product itself. Under such circumstances, it would be permissible to buy these products. (Kitaabul Fataawa 5/208/209)
