Buying things with pictures of Thor on it

Question ID: 20525


How are you?

Does a person become a kaafir if they buy clothes, toys, bags, shoes (mainly childrens’) etc, which have pictures of THOR who is one of the characters from superheroes based on Marvel Comics etc?

Thor was one of the most important and famous gods in Norse mythology. He was the son of Odin and Fyorgyn, the earth goddess. Thor was considered the storm-weather god of sky and thunder and also a fertility god. His wife was Sif, a goddess also linked to fertility. He had a red beard and eyes, he was huge in size, he had an insatiable appetite and not much wit. Thor was the strongest of all gods and men according toThe Prose Edda.

(In Norse mythology, Thor from Old Norse Þórr is a hammer-wielding god associated with thunder, lightning, storms,oak trees, strength, the protection of mankind, and also hallowing, healing and fertility. The cognate deity in wider Germanic mythologyand paganism was known in Old English asÞunor and in Old High German as Donar (runicþonar), stemming from a Common Germanic *Þunraz (meaning “thunder”).

Ultimately stemming from Proto-Indo-European religion, Thor is a prominently mentioned god throughout the recorded history of the Germanic peoples, from the Roman occupation of regions of Germania, to the tribal expansions of the Migration Period, to his high popularity during the Viking Age, when, in the face of the process of theChristianization of Scandinavia, emblems of his hammer, Mjölnir, were worn in defiance and Norse pagan personal names containing the name of the god bear witness to his popularity. Into the modern period, Thor continued to be acknowledged in rural folklore throughout Germanic regions. Thor is frequently referred to in place names, the day of the week Thursday (“Thor’s day”; Old English Thunresdæg, Thunor’s day; German”Donnerstag” Donar’s day; Dutch “donderdag”) bears his name, and names stemming from the pagan period containing his own continue to be used today)

The person would NOT become a Kaafir.
However, a Muslim must never wear clothing any animate picture on it.
This brings the wrath of Allaah.
