Ash-Shaykh Muqbil rahimahullah was asked the following question:

التلفزيون والفيديو والكاميرا إذا أرد الشخص أن يتخلص منهن هل يجوز له أن يبيعها على أخيه المسلم أم أن يتلفها أو يبيعها على كافر ؟


“If a person wishes to get rid of a television set, and a camera, is it permissible for him to sell it to his Muslim brother or should he destroy it or should he sell it to a non-muslim?”


إن قوي عزمه وقوي إيمانه على أن يتلفها فنحن ننصحه بهذا ، وإن لم يقوى عزمه فممكن أن يبيعها على قاطع صلاة أو يبيعها على كافر إلى غير ذلك ، وحننيك بعض الشر أهون من بعض والله المستعان .


“If he is strong [enough] in his determination and eeman to destroy it, then we advise him with that. However, if his determination isn’t strong [enough to do so], perhaps he could sell it to a man who doesn’t pray or to a disbeliever – to someone of this category. For verily some [of the] evil is lesser than others, and Allah’s aid is sought.” End quote.
