Ruling on raising pigs and rats for university laboratories


Is working with pigs in university laboratories permissible?.


Praise be to Allah.

There is nothing wrong with raising pigs and rats to carry out scientific experiments on them, so long as you do not touch the pig except with a barrier, such as gloves, or you wash your hands after touching it.
