Q.1 If you touch leather from pig with wet hands does your hand become Najis? Q.2 if you touch sheep leather which is not slaughtered islamically does your hand become najis? Thank you


Masail no. 203: Leather products are impure (najis) and salat in them is not permissible, if we know that they have been made from the hide of an animal not slaughtered according to Islamic laws.

(Pig is a najis animal)  so any part of it would be najis.

Such products are considered pure and salat in them is permissible, if there is a probability that they were made from skin of an animal that is essentially halal and was slaughtered according to Islamic laws.
