I know that it's verily haram to eat pork or anything that is derived from pig, but what about touching something that may possibly be derived from a part of a pig and sometimes you just cannot avoid these because you didn't know? For example if a hat I'm wearing is made of something that is derived from pig (other than the hair of the pig), and pig is considered as somewhat najis (impure), then is it not sufficient for me to just cleanse myself by taking a bath?
Or if I use a carbonless paper that contains gelatin that is derived from pig, is it haram to use the paper as a means of something other than eating? Just for writing for example yet it has to touch the skin in order for me to write.
Even worse, is it haram if I use a soap bar containing a chemical that is derived from pig for bathing?
But non of those things I eat. Even if it did entered my mouth it was involuntary and how would I know that a small amount of the derived pig content has actually entered my mouth or not? How would I know if the producer of the product is telling the truth or not about its content? How would I know if the Halal Agency that gave the accreditation did not miss anything 100% at all? They are all human after all.
If the meat of swine is impure and anything that touches the meat (pig skin) is also impure, then logically thinking the air that surrounds the swine also becomes impure because it has touched its skin ? impurity after impurity, if that makes any sense? Don't you know that pigs can pass the wind too? Can you say that touching its skin is haram and smelling its fart is ok? Or even smelling its meat, is it ok?
So is it haram to even go near a pig/swine? Is it forbidden to live in an area that is near a swine? Is it forbidden to live in a planet that has swine in it? Just to what extent did the Prophet asked us to avoid it? Are we really going in the right direction with these questions? Then can you guarantee that the air that you breathe there is in fact.... Halal? You would then have to spend all day long just to verify every volume of air you breath does not contain the fart of pork without any time to do anything else. I don't believe Islam is supposed to make your daily obligations that difficult for you even if your intention was to perfect your deen. I never heard of the Prophet SAW doing that which I had described. But I could be wrong.
Otherwise, I think you would be dead.... if you are forbidden to inhale air that is not guaranteed..... Halal.
Btw how did the Prophet SAW and His Companions verify that the food that they ate given from other people does not contain any "piggy" stuff without the DNA Technology that we are given today? Because as you know rejecting the food given while you are invited to dinner would be considered very rude to the host. Just because you were unsure if it is halal or not while the host insisted that it doesn't contain any haram food.
The real Question is, did the Prophet SAW ever recommends to check EVERY SINGLE TIME at EVERY SINGLE OCCASION for possibility of pig derived ingredients in a food or Drink? If Yes, How did he recommend to do it? do you think that just by asking the company/person that made the food/drink, will guarantee that none of its content is derived from pig? Do you think that just because it is labeled halal it is a guarantee that nothing in it is derived from pork? Even those agencies can be wrong sometimes you know. Then if your not 100% sure that it doesn't contain anything derived from pork then shouldn't you avoid it anyway? and was it for foods only that he recommended to do so or is it also for other stuffs beside foods and drinks?
