One of my relatives lives in America. He has a super shop there. An American company regularly supplies frozen chickens. According to the Islamic method, chickens are not slaughtered in that company by saying 'Bismillah'. But if these chickens are not sold to Muslims in the super shop; Instead, these chickens are sold to non-Muslim buyers. Is it permissible then? And will the profit earned from this be halal?

In the name of Allah the most Gracious the most Merciful

The answer to your question is as follow:

The chickens not slaughtered according to the Islamic method are considered dead for a Muslim. And selling and buying of dead are forbidden in Islam. Therefore, buying and selling of such chickens is not halal for a Muslim, thus the profit earned by it is not halal.

إنما حرم عليكم الميتة والدم ولحم الخنزير وما أهل لغير الله به فمن اضطر غير باغ ولا عاد فإن الله غفور رحيم (سورۃ النحل 114)

وإذا صارت ميتة صار نجسا ولم يجز بيعه انتهى (عمدۃ القاری 12/37) وإنما لا يجوز أخذ الثمن فيها لأنها ميتة لا يجوز تملكها ولا أخذ عوض عنها، وقد حرم الشارع ثمنها وثمن الأصنام في حديث جابر (عمدۃ القاری، باب طرح جیف المشرکین فی البئر 15/105)
