The Ruling on Jackets manufactured from Pigskin


Question :
Recently, Sharp disagreements have occurred between us regarding the matter of wearing leather Jackets. Some brothers hold that these jackets are sometimes manufactured from pigskin; if this is so, what is your opinion regarding the wearing of them? And is it permissible for us from a religious standpoint, bearing in mind that some books, such as Al-Halal wal-Haram by Al-Qaradhawi and Al-Fiqh ' Alal-Mathahib Al-Arba'ah, have dealt with the question , but their conclusions are not to the point, and they have not made the matter absolutely clear. Therefore, we request clarification in this matter.

Answer :
It has been authentically reported that from the Prophet Peace Be Upon Him that he said:
Once a skin has been tanned, it is pure.
"Once a skin has been tanned, it is pure."
Muslim no. 336 and Abu Dawud no. 4123.
And he said:
Tanning the skin of a dead animal purifies it.
"Tanning the skin of a dead animal purifies it."
Muslim no. 336 and Abu Dawud no. 4123.
Scholars have disagreed in this regard: Does this Hadith include all types of leather, or does it refer only to the skins of animals which have been made permissible through slaughter, such as the camel, the cow, the sheep etc. is pure, and it is permissible to use it for everything, according to the most authoritative opinion of the scholars. As for the skin of the pig and the dog and the other such animals, which it is forbidden to slaughter, there is a difference of opinion regarding its purity among the scholars. The best thing is to avoid using it, based upon the words of the Prophet Peace Be Upon Him:
Whoever avoid those matters which are unclear, has protected his religion and his honor.
"Whoever avoid those matters which are unclear, has protected his religion and his honor."
Al-Bukhari no. 52 and Muslim no 1599.
and his words:
Leave whatever cause you to doubt, in favor of whatever does not cause you do doubt.
"Leave whatever cause you to doubt, in favor of whatever does not cause you do doubt."
At-Trimithi no 2518.
Ibn Baz
