Ask an Alim

can we eat HFC approved chicken


I just wanted to know can we eat HFC approved chicken.
To my understanding that is stunned. I know alot of Muslims do eat it but do not let my kids eat anything unless it is HMC approved. They are a little confused to why this is. Could you just give me a simple clear answer please.
Thanks and duas.


Wa alaykum salaam

Thank you for your question.

According to Ayatullah Sistani the animals slaughtered by hand and by machine are halaal if the conditions are adhered to.

* And what is the ruling on animals killed in fully automated abattoir?
– So long as the conditions of slaughtering are adhered to, it is halal to consume. In that a) the operator who is charged with handling the blade, or pressing the button that operates the blade, should ensure that the animal was positioned in the direction of the qiblah, that b) the utterance was made, and that c) the rest of the conditions were fulfilled, the meat of the animal, slaughtered in this way, is halal.
