    scientific proof that Islamic slaughter is healthier for humans



    The following is a summary of research done in Germany
    about the methods of animal slaughter and their
    merits. Revel and be thankful to Allah that He has
    guided us to Islam and pray that He keeps us on that
    straight path. Halaal slaughter is the humane method
    providing hygienic meat to the consumer.

    Al Shaddad Bin Aous (Radhiyallaahu Anhu) has quoted
    this tradition of the Holy Prophet (Sallallaahu
    Alayhi Wasallam) "Allah calls for mercy in everything,
    so be merciful when you kill and when you slaughter.
    Sharpen your blade to relieve its pain." Many
    allegations have been made that Islamic slaughter is
    not humane to animals. However, Professor Schultz and
    his colleague Dr. Hazim of the Hanover University,
    Germany, proved through an experiment, using an
    Electroencephalogram (EEG - An instrument that records
    the electrical activity of the brain) and
    Electrocardiogram (ECG - An instrument that records
    the electrical current generated by
    heartbeat) that:

    1.. Islamic slaughter is the humane method of
    slaughter; and,
    2.. Captive bolt stunning, practised by the western
    method, causes severe pain to the animal.

    Experimental Details
    Several electrodes were surgically implanted at
    various points on the skull of all animals, touching
    the surface of the brain. The animals were allowed to
    recover for several weeks. Some animals were
    slaughtered by making a swift, deep incision with a
    sharp knife on the neck
    cutting the jugular veins and carotid arteries of both
    sides; and also the trachea and
    oesophagus i.e. the Halaal method. Some animals were
    stunned using a captive bolt pistol slaughter by the
    western method. During the experiment, EEG and ECG
    were used on all animals
    to record the condition of the brain and heart during
    the course of slaughter and stunning.

    Results and Discussion:

    Halaal Method
    The first three seconds from the time of Islamic
    slaughter as recorded on the EEG did not show any
    change from the graph before slaughter , thus
    indicating that the animal did not feel any pain
    during or immediately after the incision. For the
    following 3 seconds, the EEG recorded a condition of
    deep sleep - unconsciousness. This is due to a large
    quantity of blood
    gushing out from the body. After the above mentioned 6
    seconds, the EEG recorded zero level, showing no
    feeling of pain at all. As the brain message (EEG)
    dropped to zero level, the heart was still pounding
    and the body convulsing vigorously (a reflex action of
    the spinal
    cord) driving maximum blood from the body, resulting
    in hygienic meat for
    the consumer.

    Western method by Captive Bolt Stunning
    (For Refrence)

    The animals were apparently unconscious soon after
    stunning. EEG showed severe pain immediately after
    stunning. The hearts of the animal stunned by C.B.P.
    stopped beating as compared to those of the animals
    slaughtered according to the Halal method resulting in
    the retention of more blood in the meat. This in turn
    is unhygienic for the consumer.
