Praying beside someone who is wearing a pigskinleather jacket
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
As salamu alaykum, If one is praying in the saff beside someone who is wearing a pigskinleather jacket, and during the salaah the pigskinleather jacket does touch the praying person's clothes does his salaah become nulliefied ? What about if it does touch the praying person's skin ? Was salaam.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
The use of pig skin is totally forbidden for believers to use. So coming into a mosque wearing pigskin leather jacket is not acceptable at all.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
