The isolated hadith (AL-Khabar AL-Wahid)

By Ibn Saad / Seeking Ilm / 02 Apr 2014

Source : / 31 Mar 2014

Question :

They should additionally prove that there exists a prohibition of performing musafahah with both hands. Without these two things, their claim cannot be substantiated.

Meat from Machine Slaughtered Animals

By Shaykh Muhammad ibn Adam al-Kawthari / 16 Dec 2013

Slaughtering animals mechanically has become a widespread phenomenon in many abattoirs, plants and firms in a number of countries. The idea and objective behind slaughtering animals mechanically rather than manually is to speed up the process of slaughter, thus catering for a mass production.
