Pigskin for Shoes

By Mufti Ebrahim Desai


Q.) I am running a shoe factory. Is it allowed to make footwear from pig skin supplied by the customer?

A.) The skin of a pig is najis (impure). It is not permissible to derive any benefit from a pig. Therefore it is incorrect to manufacture shoes of pig skin. And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
