Reciting the Tasmiyyah at the time Slaughter

Q: I am a PhD, Electronics Engineering, student in Torino, Italy. I have a question regarding chicken meat. There is a slaughter house near our city where Arab Muslim use to slaughter chickens. He slaughters the chicken by hand. Usually he has to slaughter approximately 7,500 chickens in 6 hours. He use to say Takbeer randomly, and not on each individual chicken. He says that it is quite difficult for him to say takbeer on each chicken. We had read in one of Mufti Taqi Usmani Sahib's (db) book that according to Imam Shaafaee (Rehmat Ullah Alaih), it is sunnah to read takbeer during slaughtering. This is the only slaughter house in our knowledge where there is no machine slaughtering of chicken. Now my question is that, if person is slaughtering so many chickens, is it a MUST for him to pass takbeer on each individual. Is it possible for us to eat that chicken if that person is slaughtering correctly according to Fiqh Shafaee?

Islamic etiquettes with regards to answering the door

Q: What is the Islamic etiquette with regards to answering the door when someone knocks. Some people don't answer the door or delay for quite some time before answering the door for no reason at all. In some cases if the person is eating or reading Qur'an, etc, he doesn't answer the door or delays unnecessarily. The person doesn't even announce to the knocker informing him that he has heard him. Is this not inconveniencing the visitors? Please explain the correct conduct and etiquette.

Selling Beer Powder

Q:

1. Is it permissible for a Muslim to sell beer powder? The names of the beer powder in question are mnanti beer powder and kings brew beer powder. According to my knowledge, these items can only be used to make beer.

2. One of the staff members in this business is a Muslim. He works in the receiving and despatch department. Is it permissible for him to do this work?

Women attending Deeni programmes

Q: According to Islamic law, women should remain in their homes and only leave their homes if there is an urgent need to, yet we find that there are Ulama who are advertising this program and that program all in the name of uplifting the ummah. Obviously, these women are going to leave their homes to attend these programs and as a woman myself, I know very well as to how women beautify themselves when leaving the home. My question is "Are these Ulama not contradicting themselves so severly?" Many women look at this and think that its totally fine to go because the Moulanas are encouraging it.

Using a Sheath during Intercourse

Q: I am aware that oral sex is Makrooh.  I have recently come across an article(western health website) stating that impurites from private organs could be dangerous and one should avoid these coming into the mouth. The article suggested using a sheath (alternatively dental dam) to cover the private area of a women before doing such acts. If one does take the above precautions, will the act be permissable?
