When a muslim slaughters a bird in the way prescribed in shariyah to get halal flesh, if a non-muslim helps him by holding the bird during slaughering, will it become haram?

Answer

(Fatwa: 1180/1180=M/1429)

 

If the non-Muslim person is only helping in holding the bird during slaughtering and the slaughtering is made by the Muslim after reciting BismiAllah then the slaughtered animal is halal.
