Salamun Alaykum,

A similar question was answered by Syed Seestani in his book 
"al-Mustahdathat min al-Masa'il al-Shar'iyyah" 

I have reproduced it below.

Q90: Gelatine substance is normally made from the bones of a cow. 
If it is taken from animals not slaughtered in the Islamic manner, with 
the knowledge that it is not permissible to eat it, is it ruled to be
ritually pure for external usage?

A: Yes, because the bone is from the part in which life does not dwell; 
therefore, it is ritually pure, even if it were from a dead (animal). 
God knows best. (MMS, p. 36, Q75)

Original Question:

I read the questions and answers in the archives on whether gelatin is haraam
or halaal.  The answers cited Imam Khoei (1989), but I would like to know what
the current Imam has to say about this.  Also, do all moulanas/mujtahids etc.
agree on this solution (istahaza makes gelatin tahir) ?
