Mustahab acts while slaughtering animals


2608. Certain acts are Mustahab in slaughtering the animals:

1. While slaughtering the sheep (or a goat), both of its hands and one foot should be tied together and the other foot should be left free. As for a cow, its two hands and two feet should be tied and the tail should be left free.
And in the case of a camel, its two hands should be tied from below up to its knees, or below its armpits with each other, and its feet should be left free. And it is recommended that a bird should be left free after being slaughtered so that it may flap its wings and feathers.
2. One who is slaughtering an animal should be facing the Qibla.
3. Water should be placed in front of an animal before slaughtering it.
4. An animal should be slaughtered in such a way that it should suffer the least, that is, it should be slaughtered with a very sharp knife and should be slaughtered swiftly.
