Procedure for Slaughter

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by CouncilofUlama.co.za

Q: What is the process of slaughtering outside the 2 Eids and what to read or say when slaughtering?

A: Slaughtering takes place at the time of Eidul Adhaa, not Eidul-Fitr. The method of slaughter remains the same regardless of which time of the year one slaughters. These are the conditions:

The slaughterer must be a Muslim.
Face the animal towards Qiblah.
Use a sharp knife.
The following should be recited when slaughtering:

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ


Severe the four vessels in the throat; the gullet, the jugular vein and the two wind pipes. At least three from the four should be cut to render the animal Halaal.
