Bismillaahi`r-Rahmaani`r-Raheem

Wearing or Sitting on Skins of Wild Animals

Praise be to Allaah.

al-Bukhaari (5175) narrated from al-Baraa’ ibn ‘Aazib (may Allaah be pleased with him) which says that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade al-mayaathir.

Al-mayaathir was a kind of blanket that they used to put on the saddle of the horse, which was made of silk. And some of the scholars interpreted it as referring to the skins of wild animals. Al-Haafiz ibn Hajar (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: Or it may be understood as referring to a stuffed cushion made of animal skin.

Fath al-Baari, 10/293
