    Is pig dissection allowed, it is a requirement/assignment for my biology class, we will be using gloves, and I will be washing my hands thoroughly.

    As long as you're not going to be eating it afterwards I can't see why it won't be allowed :scratch:

          Because it's important to learn how to butcher pigs, it is also a good career

            :salams:
            It is OK to dissect a pig for academic purposes, but it is naajis (unclean, impure), so you have to touch it indirectly [e.g., wear gloves – translator]. If you need to touch it directly, that’s fine, then you must wash your hands afterwards.

              Because to study anatomy, and also because if you became a doctor, and you had to operate on somebody, you'll need the skill of steady hands, precision, etc. which comes from practice. Now, a school very well cannot afford human cadavers, so they use pigs instead.

                  Dissecting the heart of a pig would be permissible if latex gloves are used, and disposed of after, as they are used mostly as disposables. One should not use them again. If your skin touches any part of the pig, then it should be thoroughly washed. However, if you keep using the same gloves for the same purpose, then there is no need to keep washing them. One does not have to wash ones hands too, as the gloves cover them.

                  Had to do that last year. Pig. Sheep's heart.

                  They use pigs because pigs' internal system are similar humans'.
                  Secure few moments, everyday, to reflect upon the innumerable blessings of Allah and thank Him for bestowing them upon you.

                    We do touch things that are impure in our daily lives, that is not an issue .

                    I am sure you can use gloves , they will provide that.

                      I named my fetal pig Cletus the Fetus. I had to dissect him on a continuous basis for 6 weeks. In the end, he started to turn green :vomit:

                      You are not here just to fill space or to be a background character in someone else's movie. Consider this: nothing would be the same if you did not exist. Every place you have ever been and everyone you have ever spoken to would be different without you. We are all connected, and we are all affected by the decisions and even the existence of those around us.
