Zabeeha and Tasmiyah (Mentioning the Name of Allah)
|Q.) Is reciting the name of Allah while slaughtering an animal obligatory? Is
it fard or sunnah? What happens if the person does not recite the name of
a) on purpose b) by mistake c) he is not aware d) under pressure?
A.) Upon slaughtering an animal, it is fard upon a Muslim to recite the
name of Allah. If he did not recite the name of Allah on purpose, the meat of the animal
will not be Halal. If he forgot or was under pressure, he will be excused and the meat of
such an animal will be Halal. Not being aware is not clear to us.
And Allah Taala Knows Best.
