Meat of animals slaughtered by the Ahle-kitaab

Q: Is it ok to eat meat slaughtered by current Christians and Jews or those who believed during prophet time?

A: Contemporary Jews and Christians are just Jews and Christians by name. Most of them don't believe in their own scriptures. Hence, they are unbelievers, and the slaughtering of an unbeliever is impermissible. For further details refer to

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
