    AAWB,

    Freemans use a low voltage shock which does not kill the animal after which time a muslim slaughter man carries out the slaughtering manual.

    Is this halal?

    Walaikumussalam w w

    If that is the case, then who can say it’s haram? The problem arises when too much current is given and there is risk of the bird’s death. Similarly problem is when there is no zaabeh and slaughter is done mechanically. Also, according to the hanafi mazhab, problem comes when tasmiyah is deliberately omitted.
