Slaughtering an Animal in the state of Janabah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by



I have a question

If a person is in the state of Janabah then he slaughters an animal does it become halaal?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Slaughtering in the state of impurity does not affect the validity of the slaughter. The animal will be considered halaal as long as it was slaughtered in the correct procedure. [1]

من يجوز ذبحه

وَأما من يجوز ذبحه فان ذبح كل مُسلم وكل كتابي حَلَال رجلا كَانَ اَوْ انثى حرا كَانَ اَوْ عبدا جنبا كَانَ اَوْ طَاهِرا عَالما كَانَ اَوْ جَاهِلا برا كَانَ اَوْ فَاجِرًا
