Ruling 2615

If an animal becomes unruly and cannot be slaughtered in accordance with the instructions of Islamic law, or, for example, it falls into a well and it is deemed probable that it would die in the well and killing it in accordance with the instructions of Islamic law is not possible, then wherever a wound is inflicted on its body and it dies on account of that wound, it becomes lawful to eat. In such a case, it is not necessary to make it face qibla. However, the other conditions that were mentioned with regard to slaughtering an animal must be fulfilled.
