Eating the animals slaughtered after being electrically stunned in a Muslim countr
If such animals are slaughtered immediately after being electrically stunned while they are still alive, it will be permissible to eat them. However, if they are slaughtered after they die, it will be impermissible to eat them. So the ruling on the animals in question is the same as ruling on Al-Mawqudhah (animals killed by a violent blow). Allah (Exalted be He) prohibited Al-Mawqudhah unless it is slaughtered before its death provided that there is an indication to show so until the end of the slaughtering process. Such an indication may be a hand or a leg movement or blood flow etc. Allah (Exalted be He) says,
Forbidden to you (for food) are: Al-Maitah (the dead animals - cattle - beast not slaughtered), blood, the flesh of swine, and that on which Allâh’s Name has not been mentioned while slaughtering, (that which has been slaughtered as a sacrifice for others than Allâh, or has been slaughtered for idols) and that which has been killed by strangling, or by a violent blow, or by a headlong fall, or by the goring of horns, and that which has been (partly) eaten by a wild animal, unless you are able to slaughter it (before its death)
Allah thus permits eating animals which are subjected to damages only when they are slaughtered before they die. (Part No. 22; Page No. 367) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
