Qiviut Musk

Posted on Thursday, September 24th, 2009 at 6:36 am

Musk oxen (Ovibos moschatus) halal?

Actually, what I'd really like to know if clothing made of 'qiviut', the soft underfur of this animal, would be permissible. The fibre provides extremely good insulation. The animal, most closely related to sheep and goats, has cloven hooves and chews the cud.

Have I missed anything relevant?

I have ask a muslim friend and he believes the animal is haram because of how it interacts with the enviroment.
