Wearing Pig Skin Suede Shoes

Question

I suffer from intense foot pain from birth that has a crippling effect when I walk a block or stand for 20 minutes or so. I came across these medically altered shoes that have provided some relief. I found out today that they are made of Pig skin suede. Is it permissible for me to keep wearing these shoes? Your help will be really appreciated. Thank you.


Answer

Dead meat and pig are not allowed for consumption as food item. That too is exonerated by the Sharia'h when one does not find another food. You are only wearing the shoes. You need them. Therefore, it is allowable for you to use those shoes.
