14. Do not sharpen the knife before the animal.

وعن ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما أن رجلا أضجع شاة وهو يحد شفرته فقال النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم أتريد أن تميتها موتتين هلا أحددت شفرتك قبل أن تضجعها (الترغيب رقم 3422 )

Hadhrat ibn Abbaas (Radhiallahu Anhuma) reports that on one occasion a person had laid his animal down for slaughtering and was sharpening his knife (in view of the animal). Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) reprimanded him saying: “Do you want to kill this animal twice? Why didn’t you sharpen your knife before bringing your animal here to be slaughtered?”

15. One should bring the animal to the place of slaughter gently. One should not drag the animal.

عن ابن سيرين أن عمر رضي الله عنه رأى رجلا يسحب شاة برجلها ليذبحها فقال له ويلك قدها إلى الموت قودا جميلا (الترغيب رقم 1674)

Hadhrat ibn Sireen (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) reports that Hadhrat Umar (Radhiallahu Anhu) saw a man dragging his goat along by its leg to slaughter it. Hadhrat Umar (Radhiallahu Anhu) reprimanded him saying: “Woe be to you, why do you drag it? Lead it along towards its death in a beautiful manner.

16. One should place the animal on its left side facing towards the qiblah.

عن انس بن مالك رضي الله عنه قال : ضحى رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم بكبشين أملحين أقرنين ذبحهما بيده وسمى وكبر ووضع رجله على صفاحهما (ترمذي رقم 1494)

Hadhrat Anas (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) slaughtered two horned, black and white rams. He slaughtered them with his own hands while reciting the tasmiya and takbeer and placed his leg on their sides.

17. One should not commence the skinning until the animal is completely cold and there is no sign of life left in the body.

18. The person cutting the animal should hold the knife with his right hand and cut the animal as swiftly as possible.

19. At the time of slaughtering, one should recite the tasmiya in the following manner:

بِسمِ اللهِ اللهُ أكْبَر

In the name of Allah Ta’ala, and Allah Ta’ala is the greatest.

20. If the tasmiya was left out intentionally the animal will be carrion.

وَلَا تَأْكُلُوا مِمَّا لَمْ يُذْكَرِ اسْمُ اللَّـهِ عَلَيْهِ

And do not eat (of that meat) on which the name of Allah Ta’ala had not been taken (at the time of slaughtering).
