Ruling 2070

Oil and other products that are acquired from an animal after it has died are considered pure, and buying and selling them is permitted. The same applies to leather that is acquired from a Muslim whom a person knows to have acquired it from a disbeliever without investigating whether or not the leather was acquired from an animal that was slaughtered according to Islamic law. However, consuming such oil and the like is not permitted.
