Truck driver hauling pork meat

Fatwaa ID: 1522

Aslam o aliaikum, qs for any Mufti.
Is it okay for a truck driver to haul pork meat from one place to another without physically touching it?
Pleasr advise

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

Pork is haraam and impure. It is not permissible to haul it from one place to another. This is irrespective of whether you touch it or not. If you are driving a truck that contains a mixture of things, including halaal and haraam things, then there is a leeway. Even in this case, taqwa is to abstain. If it is only haraam things, then it will not be permissible.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
