Is It Permissible to Use Wild Boar for Any Purpose?

A Wild boar takes the ruling of a pig in that it is essentially filthy (najis al-`ayn). [Ibn `Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar]

This is affirmed by numerous explicit Qur’anic texts, such as, “You are forbidden to eat carrion; blood; pig’s meat; any animal over which any name other than God’s has been invoked.” [5.3]

Thus it would not be lawful to use its hairs.

And Allah alone gives success.
