Figurines as Decorations

What is the ruling on decorating homes with figurines that are not kept in houses for the purpose of worship?

It is not permissible to post pictures, nor keep taxidermy or stuffed animals in homes or offices as implied by the authentic traditions of the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) that indicate the prohibition of posting pictures or keeping statues or figurines in homes or elsewhere. Displaying figurines and posting images are conducive to Shirk, and imitating the enemies of Allaah, and competing with Allaah in terms of creation. Stuffed animals are also a waste of money, and a pretext of posting or keeping statues. The perfect Islamic law leaves no excuse for means which leads to Shirk or sinful practices.
