    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 212/182/N=3/1443)


    (1 & 2) In Islam, machine slaughter is haram and carrion, even if a person is standing there and saying Bismillahi Allahu Akbar loudly on a loudspeaker or a recorded Bismillah is played on a loudspeaker, so you should never eat this type of chicken, it must be avoided.


    (3) Yes! It is permissible to eat chicken of a slaughter house where chickens are slaughtered by a Muslim according to Shariah.
