Question:

Is it permissible for university students to dissect a baby pig?

Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Dissecting a baby pig is permissible for research purposes so long as one uses gloves when touching the pig.  If your skin touches any part of the pig, then it should be washed thoroughly.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

Mufti Faraz ibn Adam al-Mahmudi,
