Method of Slaughtering

Q: What is the process of slaugtering outside the two Eids and what should one read or say when slaughtering?

Slaughtering takes place at the time of Eidul Adhaa, not Eidul-Fitr. The method of slaughter remains the same regardless of which time of the year one slaughters. These are the conditions:

The slaughterer must be a Muslim.
Face the animal towards Qiblah.
Use a sharp knife.
The following should be recited when slaughtering:

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ


Sever the four vessels in the throat; the gullet, the jugular vein and the two wind pipes. At least three from the four should be cut to render the animal Halaal.
