Salam all, I had posted this in another thread, but never got a reply, I'd like to know if it is ok to follow this ruling on wearing pig leather from the book I mention below:
I have a book "Al-Fiqh al-Islami According to the Hanafi Madhhab" by Sh Mohammad Akram Nadwi. In it, purifying a hide is discussed and it states "scholars agree that tanning purifies the hide and the fur of any dead animal. However, they disagree on whether tanning can purify the hide of a pig. Abu Yusuf holds that it can. Considering this view, boots, shoes, belts or anything else made of tanned pig's hide are allowed."
