Undesirable Things In Slaying The Animal
If after slaughtering a cow, goat etc., a living kid comes out from the embryo it is also compulsory to be slaughtered (because the slaughtering of the mother is not enough for its kid) and if the kid is found dead or its parts of body are not formed in both the cases its use is not permitted.
In shariat there is no special intention (Niyyat) prescribed for slaughtering the animal whereas any animal is ordered to be slaughtered while uttering Bismillahi Allahu Akbar. Hence there is no seperate niyyat for cow, goat, fowl etc., (some illiterate villagers have the tradition to make special intention by chanting some Arabic words for different animals and then slaughter) If any person has adopted such intention there is no harm but it should not be made compulsory. However it should be kept in mind that with the uttering of Bismillahi Allahu Akbar the knife moves.
A person unaware of the slaughter and uses the knife on which Bismillahi Allahu Akbar is blown over by his forefathers (a knife on which Bismillahi Allahu Akbar is uttered and blown). With this knife if any animal is slaughtered without reciting Bismillahi Allahu Akbar the slaughter will be void (the animal is a carrion and its use is prohibited.

The wound thus inflicted on any part of the body the slaughter is valid provided no life is found in it after it is removed and if life is found in it it will be slaughtered. If it sruvives for some time and dies without slaughter its use is not permitted.
(ii). If any permitted animal is hunted with sharf weapon (arrow etc.) or it is hunted through any trained animal its use is valid and correct without

If the hunter at the time of hunting has intentionally avoided utterance of Bismillahi Allahu Akbar or any other animal which is not trained joins the trained animal or the trained animal takes a long time in hunting the prey and eats for himself, somthing out of it, or the sharp implement does not cause any wound from its edge in all such cases the slaughter is not lawful.
