Machine-slaughtered Chicken

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za
Q: We live in America and the halal chicken available is machine cut. The machine cuts the chicken and the person says the TASMIYAH but the machine goes faster then the human so he can not say on each. Is this chicken is halal?

A: Machine-slaughtered chicken is not Halaal. Firstly, as you quite rightly stated, the operator of the machine cannot recite Tasmiyah on every bird. Secondly, the Shari’ah requires that the slaughtering be done directly with the hand, not with a hand-operated machine.
