Does the Animal Feel Pain in This Method?
In a study entitled Attempts to Objectify Pain and Consciousness in Conventional (captive bolt pistol stunning) and Ritual (halal, knife) Methods of Slaughtering Sheep and Calves, carried out by Professor Wilhelm Schulze and his colleague Dr. Hazim at the School of Veterinary Medicine, Hanover University, Germany, several electrodes were surgically implanted at various points of the skull of all animals, touching the surface of the brain. After the animals were allowed to recover for several weeks, some animals were slaughtered in the Islamic manner mentioned previously, by the cutting of the trachea, esophagus, the jugular veins and carotid arteries. Other animals were stunned first before slaughtering. During the experiment, an electroencephalograph (EEG) and an electrocardiogram (ECG) recorded the condition of the brain and the heart of all animals during the course of sl ...more

The Shariah term for Halal Slaughtering is Dhakat. Dhakat in Arabic comes from the root idea of making something become good in smell and taste, and making it complete. Dhakat thus means: "to slaughter an animal in such a way as to make it smell and taste good, because slaughtering releases the blood, enabling the meat to dry faster." (Al Qurtubi V6 / P52) As an Islamic technical term, it means releasing the blood of animals by means of a sharp object from a specific place in a specific manner, doing it for the sake of Allah (SWT) Alone, and mentioning His Name over the animal.

The scientific concept behind slaughtering of animals by "Halal" is to ensure that every drop of the blood of anaimal is drained off so that there is no poisonous substnces in the carcas of the animal. They chant relevant slogans from Quran also.

What difference method will make ? Anyways you are going to kill the animal & eat it. Would telling some halal prayer enhance the taste of meat or will it invoke the blessing of almighty on dead meat ?????

There is one method only .The noble Quran chapter Hajj says:- (at the time of sacrifice) and pronounce the name of Allah over them,70and when they fall down on their sides71(after they are slaughtered), eat and also feed them who do not ask and those who ask. Thus have We subjected these animals that you may give thanks.72
Expalnation:-*70 "Mention the name of Allah over them" implies that animals should be slaughtered by pronouncing the name of Allah over them, because without that their flesh would be unlawful to eat. This shows that in the Islamic Law there is no conception of slaughtering an animal without pronouncing the name of Allah over it. According to Traditions, there are different wordings for pronouncing the name of Allah over the animals at the time of their slaughter. Some of these are:
(I) Bismillahi Allahu Akbar; Allahumma minks wa laka: "In the name of Allah, AIIah is most Great! O Allah, this is Thine and is presented to Thee".
(2) Allahu Akbar- La ilaha ill-Al ...more
