Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
We have a abattoir here we are slaughtering 200 big animals (caws) a day first we stun and then we slaughter a animal but due to the South African National Stranded we must hang animal upside-down then slaughter, so animal is made ZIBAH IN HANGING POSITION UPSIDE-DOWN. Is this right or not if not then please guide us to safeguard our self from DOING WRONG as our deen comes first then business. We would like to request Mufti Sahib and Ulama to help us to walk on the right path.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 1416/1151/B=08/1435)

The sunnah method of slaughtering is that the head of the animal is up and facing Qiblah direction. However, after stunning the animal you may easily raise its head up and slaughter. However, if three blood vessels of throat are cut then it is valid and halal, but it is against sunnah to slaughter the animal in hanging position upside down.
