Hanbalis. These 3 school of thoughts have said that making girls’ toys is not included in the prohibition.
Al-Qaadi ‘Iyaad narrated that most of the scholars said that this is
permissible, and he was followed in that by
al-Nawawi in his
commentary on Muslim. He said:
“Exempted from the prohibition on making images that have a shadow are
things that are used as toys for girls, because of the exemption that
was narrated concerning that. This means that it is permissible,
whether they are toys in the shape of people or animals,
three-dimensional or otherwise, and whether they are supposed to
represent real animals or not, such as a horse with wings…
Majority of scholars use the hadith of Aisha as an evidence for this exemption:
‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) in which she says:
I used to play with dolls in the house of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). I had friends who used to play with me. When the Messenger of Allaah (PBUH) came in, they would hide themselves, then he would call them to join me and play with me.
In conclusion, Your cousin is wrong according to the hadith, and that angels would not come in the house because of the doll is wrong too.
