Doubts regarding a leather belt

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I wear a trousers belt, it’s leather. I don’t know what kind of animal skin was used to make this leather belt. I heard that if you wear leather made with pig skin and if you pray salah with it, it wouldn’t be accepted, it’s nearly impossible to tell if the leather is pig skin or not because where you buy it, it doesn’t says. Would my salah be valid? 


A: When you are not clear of the leather belt then replace it with a belt that you are clear about.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
