What is the correct method of slaughter according to Islamic law? What is the ruling on modern automated methods of slaughter? What about stunning? Are imported meats available in Saudi Arabia halal? What is the Islamic ruling on meat slaughtered by Jews and Christians? These and other burning issues have been dealt with in detail by Mufti Taqi Usmani in his Arabic book, Ahkam-uz-Zabaih. He visited many slaughterhouses around the world to witness their procedures in detail. Now this indispensable book is available in English. It may help settle the controversies surrounding the issue of halal meat. Translated by Shaykh Abdullah Nana. An Imam at a masjid in San Francisco, he graduated from Darul-Uloom Azadville in South Africa and also holds a B.S. in business administration from UC Berkeley.
