Your advice on how to do the halal slaughter is completely wrong. You do not cut across the shoulders, you should make on long clean cut across the neck to sever the windpipe and main arteries thereby starving the brain of oxygen so that the animal feels no pain as it bleeds out, naturally expelling all of the blood from its body with a beating heart. Who told you to cut across the shoulders? Please consider researching the best way to slaughter from a scientific perspective as you will find that halal is both the cleanest and most humane, although the involuntary bucking of the animal may make you a bit squeamish.https://www.quora.com/Animal-Slaughter-Is-halal-ki...
Thanks for your wonderful comment.
Thank God! My son finally did it! Reading your instruction was helpful! It was so exciting to see my 18 year old son learning the process of farm life! I have a city girl all my life, but always yearned for living with the natural element! The only thing was... that my friend's neighbors (Burmese refugees farmers) just ninja chopped all the sheep from the head to the hooves in two hours flat...And my son, sat chatting with them and sat totally free from the dirty work! I was a bit disappointed that he did not sweat this important process, but I think he was just intimidated by the knife. I was going to get the electric saw, but my neighbor said get a meat saw...What do you recommend?
I will try this idea in a few weeks when we run out of meat. God willing. thanks for the tip.
You could use a collar, but I would probably just tie a rope halter like this one: https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjb28LfxIjPAhWF0iYKHeKDDu0QjRwIBw&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.wikihow.com%2FMake-an-Adjustable-Rope-Halter&psig=AFQjCNE9vDbOHzEAGDxdzrXxgxTMNnvNFQ&ust=1473725307586871. Even if your sheep is not "halter broke", they are not very large animals, and should not make trouble for you.
Just a quick question. I may have to bring the sheep to my friend's house the night before. She ask me to bring a rope to tie the sheep. Should I get a collar too? I am totally novice at this. - MuminahK
Just wanted to thank you so much for the instruction. I also really appreciate that farmers are having interfaith dialogue. I shared on FB your page and following your instruction on Monday for Eid! God willing. - MuminahK
We slaughtered a sheep in Egypt for my daughter's "Aqiqa" which is an Islamic tradition to sacrifice an animal once a child is born. That was the first time I saw anyone kill a sheep but it was not at all inhumane. My brother in law laid the sheep on its side and my nephew put tension on the neck, his father said "Bismillah" (in God's name) slit the throat. The sheep did not suffer at all and id not fight. The blood drained out quickly since main arteries were severed so the sheep went unconscious rather quickly. I video taped it. I actually thought I was going to be very emotional and sad to see the sheep die but it all seemed really natural. They did use rope though, they tied it around the hind legs of the sheep and hung it upside down so that all of the blood could get out. While the animal's body was still warm my brother in law slit a hole one of the hind leg ankles, lifted the skin and blew under it which made it easier to take the skin off and keep it intact, which they also kept and used. But if you think about it, what did people do before guns were invested? For thousands of years people killed animals in this way, it really is a humane to kill any animal for food. The animal has served it's purpose in life. Now we bought a sheep for this coming Eid holiday, the only difference is when the animal is slaughtered the animal should face toward Makkah Saudi Arabia. I have respect for all people. I will not talk bad against people who have different faiths because that is your truth, we have our truths, our faith, but still worship the creator of all life and I will not impose my religion on anyone but if you want to know something, I am happy to tell you about how we do things. Before, I always thought if I had to kill my own animals for meat I might turn out vegetarian, but I found out that as long you do things right it's really not so bad. - SarahH257
I just read some of the comments at the bottom, and I just would like to clarify the halal slaughtering as "odd or inhumane" way to slaughter. It has been the practice for thousand of the years by the Jews and Muslims under their religious scriptures. Say "In the Name of God", slit the throat, and drain the blood. Both scriptures are the same in this method of slaughter.However, if you go to Palestine where the three faith has been there for centuries, most practice this method. They are following the tradition of Abraham who is one of the greatest prophets-Has he not slaughtered a sheep on behalf of his son?https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/mar/06/jewish-muslim-slaughter-animal-welfare-humane - MuminahK
