Placing chicken in hot water.

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulUloomTT.net

Question:

Chickens are normally placed in hot water for the easy removal of the feathers before removing it’s intestines. Would it then be permissible to partake of these, since there is a possibility of the chicken becoming unclean?


Answer:

If the chicken is left in the hot or boiling water for only that duration, that enables the easy removal of the feathers, then it remains clean and as such, it is permissible to partake of it. On the other hand if it is left for some time that causes penetration of the impurities into the meat, then in this case the chicken would become unclean and it would not be permissible to partake of it. However this does not normally take place in normal procedure.
