I know that we are not permitted to eat pork ofcourse but what about interacting with the animal? Touching it? Petting it?

Footballs are actually made of leather from cows. I read the wall at an Ihop that gave the statics of how many cow skins are used for the NFL... AND I asked the same question once lol! Why do they call it pig skin then?!?!


Quoting jadsmummy:

Interesting so footballs are out then. Good thing I don't like the sport lol.




Quoting proud2bmom3:

Assalamu alaikum dear sister.. 

it is not really purely random. since living in the united states, pigs are considered "cute" animals. especially the little piglets. in my kids' school they brought a bunch of animals for petting, one of them was a little pig.. my kids didnt' want to pet it.. to them pigs look disgusting.. I guess it is growing up considering the animal to be unclean and haram to eat.. 

pigs are haram in all... and are Najas in all ( impure) .. you cannot use their skin, hair, bone, gelatin or anything. even after processing..( unless needed for treatment like insulin or medicines..etc) . unlike dogs that are considered unclean, but if you pet them without touching their wet saliva, it is ok.. 

so, I guess bottom line, dont' touch them unless you have to. and if you do, then wash up . 

if I speak in error then it is from me. may Allah forgive me and guide us all to what pleases HIM Ameen.

Ok, so I did some digging LOL.  My husband, daughter and I like to throw the football around a lot and I almost panicked LOL. Apparently, the earilest footballs were made from inflated pigs bladders which is what earned them the nick-name of "pig skins."

Now, in college and the NFL they are required to be made from leather from a cow.  Commercial and school age footballs are often made out of just rubber or synthetic materials now too.

I was wondering because there are actually quite a few Muslim NFL players . I was thinking "I wonder if they know." Subhan'Allah.
