Not only Muslims have the greatest respect for children,mothers and
fathers and sisters and brothers, they respected the animals they
slaughtered for food. When you slaughter an animal, it is
for food. And you have to slaughter the animal in a special way
does not hurt the animal and will drain out its blood. To kill the
animal you must use a very sharp knife and cut it very, very fast so
that it has no time to feel the pain. And you must confirm that you
are allowed to slaughter the animal for food and that before cutting
the animal you must say, "In the name of Allah who allowed us to kill
the animal for food." Then and only then the animal will be cut at
the right plcace and allow its blood to come out of the body. This
called "Halal" which means "It is permitted according to Islam."
Torturing an animal is a crime. A torturer cannot kill an animal for
food. That what Islam prescribes and that what our American law
Mind you a tortured animal will not taste good. Torture leaves
secretions and contractions in the animal that makes it undesirable
for food. Speaking of our laws and Islamic laws, I see very little
difference. The only difference is blood drainage. Drainage was
mandatory because animals were not inspected as we do in America.
Blood carries diseases. So get rid of it. Islam is a symbol of
health and wholesomeness.
