assalamalaikum mufti sahab, i have muslim friends based in the south of india who are in the business of providing adhesive for leather products and sometimes they have to handle the products of customers who are using pig leather and they are obliged to physically handle such products of their customers,pls advise clearcut if this is haram to handle in person wherein they have to touch these skins. fiamanillah
Pig is inherently unclean (najis al-‘ain). It is unlawful for a Muslim to touch its skin. While in compulsion, one can opt to hire any non-Muslim to deal in such products in which one has to touch the pigskin.
