Islamic method of slaughtering animal

Zakkaytum is a verb derived from the root word Zakah (to purify). Its infinitive is Tazkiyah which means purification. The Islamic mode of slaughtering an animal requires the following conditions to be met:

a. Animal should be slaughtered with sharp object (knife)

The animal has to be slaughtered with a sharp object (knife) and in a fast way so that the pain of slaughter is minimised.

b. Cut wind pipe, throat and vessels of neck

Zabiha is an Arabic word which means 'slaughtered'. The 'slaughtering' is to be done by cutting the throat, windpipe and the blood vessels in the neck causing the animal's death without cutting the spinal cord.

c. Blood should be drained

The blood has to be drained completely before the head is removed. The purpose is to drain out most of the blood which would serve as a good culture medium for micro organisms. The spinal cord must not be cut because the nerve fibres to the heart could be damaged during the process

Yes as long as the animal is slaughtered in the correct Islamic way ie. by saying Allahu Akbar and then slaughtering in such a way that the animal has a quick, painless death.

there is no animal for the Islamic god. Hindus have snakes as gods though. But for Islam there is only one god and that is Allah. Allah is not a person nor a animal.

No. All animal sacrifice requires the existence of the Temple in Jerusalem, which was destroyed in the year 70 by the Romans.

Animal sacrifices represented many things. The most well known sacrifice today was to offer an animal as an atonement of sin to God...i.e. the animals were being sacrificed as a way of asking forgiveness from God. Sacrifices were also made as a way of becoming closer to God, during holidays, as a way of being cleansed from impurities...the reasons for offering sacrifice were numerous. It is also important to remember that non-animal sacrifices such as food were also given. And it is equally important to remember that not-quite-but-almost all of the so-called 'sacrifices' were eaten by the individual or family offering them, and by the priests (Cohens). With that in mind, we recognize that an animal sacrifice represented an opportunity to enjoy a good piece of grilled meat, exactly as most people do today but with the currently-out-of-vogue added dimensions of spirituality and gratitude.
