Trading musical instruments for charity

Q:

Asslamu alaikum, I have 2 guitars I received before I stopped listening to music. Would it be permissible to trade these for charitable donations (in lieu of selling them), to donate them, or is it better to throw in the garbage? I figured If I exchange them for donations to charity, it will go to a good cause from a person who would have purchased them at a store anyway. Jazakallah kheir!

A:

Waalykum salam 

 
Thank you for your question 
 
You can certainly sell it off and use the money for charity. A very noble thing indeed 
 
Kind regards
