The Lawful and Unlawful – The Skin of the Pig and Sea Animals

“The freed maid-servant of the Prophet’s wife, Maymunah, was given a sheep, and it died. The Prophet passed by its carcass and said, ‘Why did you not take its skin to be tanned and use it?’ They replied, ‘But it is dead.’ The Prophet said, ‘What is prohibited is eating it.’

Lecture speaks of the permissability in using the fur and skin of the pig and other animals forbidden for reasons other than food. Also the lawfulfulness of eating insects and everything from the sea. Also medicine that has haram substance is lawful if it will save your life and no other alternative.
