Q: Many times whilst cooking meat and chicken it bleeds. Some of this gets mixed in the food. What is the position of such food?
 
A: Once an animal has been slaughtered according to the Shari'ah method, any blood that remains on the body is Halaal. When cooking if this blood mixes with the gravy or water, it will remain Halaal. The blood that is Haraam in Shari'ah is flowing blood and this flowing blood has been thoroughly expelled when the animal bleeds after slaughter. (Al Hindiyyah V1 P46, V5 P290)
