What is the ruling in the Hanafi school regarding leather products?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful and Compassionate
Leather products are considered pure and permissible to use with the exception of leather sourced from pigs. [Tahtawi,Shurunbulali; Hashiyat Maraqi al-Falah]
The pig is intrinsically impure and does not become pure by tanning, as oppose to other animals. [Tahtawi,Shurunbulali; Hashiyat Maraqi al-Falah]
Hope this helps
Allah knows best
