Using slaughtering equipment from a non-Muslim butchery

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I would like to know whether the meat will be halaal or not. After investigating at a specific butchery (which is not halaal as normal), they use seperate blades and machines for pork and other meat e.g. cow, sheep. What if a Muslim borrows their machine and blade (slaughtering tools) and slaughters according to Islamic way; what will be the state of that meat?


A: It is halaal. As a precaution, he should wash the equipment before using it.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
