Stunning – Halal or Haram?
As far as stunning is concerned, the meat and chicken from animals who have been stunned prior to zibah are halaal as long as stunning isn’t the cause of death but the zibah (slaughtering/cutting through neck and arteries/veins etc) Is. Even as far as the zibah process is concerned, the faqeeh’s have stated many conditions of how the slaughter should take place, where the neck should be cut, which portion of the spine etc.. Etc. so even doing zibah with a knife requires specific training from a shariah perspective. Certainly according to the ahnaaf.
