Is it permissible to buy things that are made from the skins of animals that were not slaughtered according to the shar‘i method?


A question answered by Shaikh Muhammad Salih Al-Munajjid regarding: “ I know that there are many questions that have been discussed on thus website about animal skins. Is it permissible to buy a football or basketball, and play with it, if it could have been made from the skin of an animal in a country where meat is not slaughtered according to sharia?."
