Day Questions

If the person who pushes the button to start the machine for the slaughtering of large quantities of chicken is a Muslim who recites the Bismillah while the slaughtering takes place, is this method sufficient?

Reciting the Name of Allah suffices while slaughtering such a large quantity as long as the slaughtering and the operating of the machinery are conventionally simultaneous and the machinery is merely a tool of the slaughterer, as long as all other conditions are fulfilled. However, if the machine is continuously slaughtering the chickens with its automated movement due to the continuing supply of electricity, without the direct involvement of the person and him being regarded as the actual slaughterer, then it is not sufficient.

Is it true that if the congregational prayer is some distance away and I come into the prayer hall and the Imam is in the bowing position, I can do Takbeeratul-Ihram and bow down where I am and walk in the state of bowing to join the congregation?

When present in the place of congregational prayer, one can recite Takbeeratul-Ihram - even if not close to the group of the congregation - and walk even during prostration to join the congregation.
