i'm still to confused not only you.
but i found this article very informative. I discussed the matter before with the author of the website. Then he give me more explanations:http://quransmessage.com/articles/thakaytum%20FM3.htm
Here we see the expression thakaytum in different lexicons. The question arises as to whether those are already influenced by the tradition?
Please note that the Arabic word 'Thakaytum' has been used for 'slaughter' as a lawful manner of ending the life of an animal for consumption.
This term appears in the same verse and is contrasted with the rejection of meat sacrificed on stone altars. Here the term 'Thubiha' is actually used, clearly indicating a familiarity of this process of sacrifice.
والبدن جعلنها لكم من شعئر الله لكم فيها خير فاذكروا اسم الله عليها
صواف فإذا وجبت جنوبها فكلوا منها وأطعموا القانع والمعتر كذلك سخرنها لكم لعلكم تشكرون
the first example, speaking of thakaytum in connection with the trained animals. This should catch the animal alive
, not dead then it is killed by the name of Allah over it . Thakaytum stands for a killing in order to eat it
. Zhiba stands for Sacrifice, which God forbid, because it's pointless. In Lexikonen the two terms are always used as synonyms, but the Koran is mentioned Zhiba always negative. What does this mean for us? I think in this day and age, neither the methods of slaughter nor the livestock production is according to the law in the Qur'an . The animal is tortured, butchered, and certainly no thought of God. For me, this meat is not allowed. An animal is not like a plant, animals have a Ruh
, a breath of life. We kill an animal and delete this breath with permission from God. Therefore, we should not kill without reason, and all be aware that we have completed a life.
I therefore believe in Allah calls us, mention the name over to the animal in contrast to the plants.
If all dead meat is forbidden to us, how can we eat it.. After slaughtering an animal is still dead..
the dead meat, what we didn't thakaytum is forbidden. or meat, what the dogs catch and killed before it reach us.
my humble view .
i wish you peace
