Method of slaughtering a Camel
2604. If one wants to slaughter a camel so that it becomes Pak and Halal after it has died, it is necessary to follow the above mentioned conditions for slaughter and then thrust a knife or any other sharp implement made of iron into the hollow between its neck and chest.
2605. When one wants to thrust a knife into the neck of the camel, it is better that the camel at that time is standing. But if it has knelt down, or if it is lying on its side with its face, hands, legs and chest facing towards Qibla, there is no Ishkal (objection) in thrusting the knife into the hollow of its neck for slaughtering.
2606. If a camel’s head is cut instead of thrusting a knife into the depth of its neck, or if knife is thrust into the depth of the neck of a sheep or a cow etc. as is done in the case of a camel, it is Haraam to eat their meat and their body is Najis.
However, if the four arteries of the camel are cut first and a knife is then thrust into the depth of its neck (in the manner stated above), while it is still alive, it is Halal to eat its meat and its body is Pak. Similarly, if a knife is first thrust into the depth of the neck of a cow, sheep etc. and then its head is cut while it is still alive, in the manner stated above, it is Pak and its meat is Halal to eat.
2607. If an animal becomes unruly, and one cannot slaughter it in the manner prescribed by Shari’ah or, if it falls down into a well and one feels that it will die there and it will not be possible to slaughter it according to Shari’ah, one should inflict a severe wound on any part of its body, so that it dies as a result of that wound. Then it becomes Pak and Halal to eat. It will not be necessary that it should be facing Qibla at that time but it should fulfil all other conditions mentioned above regarding slaughtering of animals.
