(Sunni View) All parts of the Zabiha is halal, with the exception of the blood since it's the only part that was explicitely stated as haram: Say, "I do not find within that which was revealed to me [anything] forbidden to one who would eat it unless it be a dead animal or blood spilled out or the flesh of swine - for indeed, it is impure - or it ...

Because Halal slaughter is intended to inflict the least pain on the animal by cutting the arteries which suddenly drains the brain from blood and renders the animal brain-dead and thus unable to feel the pain any longer.

No. If the person believes in Allah and His Oneness then he is not kafir. Not offering prayer occasionally or chronically doesn't deem him as kafir/infidel. Prayer is an obligatory thing, ordained by Allah, for all Muslims. Not offering it will make him accountable as a Muslim. Muslim (p) implies salah (q).

According to the Hanafi school, even if the animal is slaughtered appropriately, many internal organs are still considered makruh tahrim due to the intrinsic filth of their contents (e.g. feces, urine).

From a Kosher point of view, scalding causes the blood to clot and it stops exsanguination. In other words, if you want make sure your chickens contain blood, scald them. The machinery is not precise. Sometimes chickens are literally cooked alive while being electrocutioned.

How can shrimp be prepared to be Halal? It cannot be "prepared" Halal, when meat is Halal. It is due to the slayer of the meat killing the animal in the name of Allah (swt). The process of shrimp being Halal or not is a complex topic in which the answer is bound to your madhab (school of thought if you are a Sunni Muslim). What is the proper way to ...

We check the condition of the animals before slaughtering (healthy, ...
