This means that the animal MUST be slaughtered with a sharp knife cutting the jugular vein whilst reciting the name of Allah. The animal must also be alive before slaughter and must NOT be stunned as not only is it cruel but it also does not conform to the correct way of slaughtering an animal in accordance with the Islamic slaughter criterea:
•the animal must be healthy and permissible to eat
•a sane and competent Muslim must perform the act
•a very sharp knife must be used, to facilitate rapid and painless cutting
•the slaughter should not take place within view of other animals
•the animal being slaughtered should not see the knife
•the Muslim performing the cut (zabih or dhabih) must invoke Allah by saying, “In the name of Allah” and “Allah is the Greatest” at the time of the slaughter
•the cut should not be so deep as to sever the spinal cord or head
Therefore you must ONLY eat of that animal which has been slaughtered in the correct manner in accrodance with Islamic slaughter criterea (zabiha) and any animal which has not been slaughtered Islamically is haraam for us as Muslims to eat. I hope you have clarification on this matter. Please inform the sister of this clarification.
You should really get in touch with your local Masjid and get advice on these matters off of a reliable and experienced scholar. They will also advise you as to where you can buy halal meat from.
If you have any questions at all then please do not hesitate to ask.
And Allah knows best in all matters
