Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Hair brushes that are made from pig’s hair are not permissible to sell.[1] This ruling is applicable whether the pig’s hair consists of 10% or 50% of the brush.

The brushes that you have may be returned to the seller for a refund. If this is not possible, then the brushes must be disposed of.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
