Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord
of the Worlds. I testify that there is
none worthy of worship except Allah,
and that Muhammad is His slave
and Messenger.

Fertilizing the soil with impurities is a
matter of difference of opinion among
the scholars ; most of them are
of the view that this is permissible and
that what may grow from it
(impurities), like grains, vegetables and
fruits, is pure and it is permissible to
eat it and there is no need to wash it.
The Shaafi’i School exempted the dung
of dogs and pigs, and they are of the
view that it is not permissible to
fertilize the soil with any of them.
However, other scholars, and this is the
predominant opinion of the Hanbali
School, are of the view that the plants
and fruits that are watered or fertilized
with impurities are forbidden.

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen adopted
the view that they are pure and lawful
(to eat) as he said: “The majority of the
scholars are of the view that its fruit is
not forbidden because the impurity has
been transformed unless obvious smell
or taste of impurity remains in the
fruit, in which case, it is forbidden, and
this opinion is the correct opinion
without doubt, i.e. what is fertilized
with an impurity is not forbidden
unless its smell or taste changes due to
impurity." End quote.

As regards your second question, the
answer is that the most preponderant
opinion is our view is that if the leather
of pig is tanned, it becomes pure and
so it is permissible to use it like all
other leather of dead animals.
Therefore, it is permissible to use the
products that are made of the leather of
pig if it is tanned.

Allah Knows best.
