Is there some specific location along the neck where a cut must be made for it to be halal slaughter? Or can one cut anywhere along the neck?


According to the Department Of Halal Certification:

The windpipe (throat), food-tract (oesophagus) and the two jugular veins must be cut.

Slaughtering must be made in the neck from the front (chest) to the back.

This is just a partial answer, I'll try to find evidence from the Hadith and Quran to suppprt this but if anyone finds it, feel free to edit this answer with the revelant quotations.

  • So there is no specific place? These run through the entire neck. – user28669 Aug 14 '18 at 19:57
  • The requirement is for these parts to be cut so there is no specific place. – Muslim_1234 Aug 14 '18 at 22:02
  • @user28669 I've found more informations which may help – Muslim_1234 Aug 15 '18 at 16:23
