Men should be Allowed Sex Slaves and Female Prisoners – Salwa al Mutairi

You must be shocked by reading the title of this article, but it is not my statement. This is a statement of a woman politician of Kuwait. I am just writing down what she said in her video message.  “Someone told me that his father gifted him sex slave and he is going to treat her good and that slavery is permitted in Islam. This story reminded me of an old incident. 2 years ago, I used to work with a young man who had a remarkable lust for women. I used to feel sorry for him but at the same time, I was devoted to my job. So I went to some Islamic scholars to seek their advice for this rich young man who loves women. I asked them about the regulations concerning female slaves. They explained that the process to acquire female slaves is for a Muslim country to attack a Non-Muslim country and enslave the prisoners of war.

I asked them if it is not Haram? He assured me that in Islam slavery is permitted (however, it is discouraged by the Prophet Muhammad S.A.W).  I think the only solution to protect the men from adultery is to buy female slaves. Personally, I hope for Kuwait to legitimate female slavery. I have witnessed in Kuwait the case of a woman from another country; she is not officially a female slave but after her parents denied her, she moved to live with a Kuwaiti woman. In return, she used to cook and clean for her. I think her situation is a female slave.

Instead of becoming homeless and walking in the path of sin, it is for her best interest that she found this new home after her parents rejected her. I really hope to legitimate such cases and to open the doors for slavery. I hope for a law regulating the conditions of slaves because we cannot tolerate that our men fall in the disgusting taps of adultery. Instead, we can buy female slaves from Chechenia for example; certainly, there are prisoners of war that we can buy. Isn’t it better that these slaves are sold legally to Kuwaiti traders instead of trafficking them illegally?”

I just want to add that this is her personal views which should not be related to Islam. Islam is the first religion in the world which actually discouraged the slavery. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) freed many non-Muslims prisoners/slaves of war on several occasions. It was considered a very generous act and most of them embraced Islam after this generosity.

The so-called developed countries nowadays became civilized just 70 years ago. There are horrible stories of slavery even in those civilized countries. When you talk about Islamic teachings, keep in mind that you are talking about teachings revealed 1400 years ago. Islam talked about rights of slaves at that time when people used to treat them like animals. The modern civilization took thousands of years to come. For example, we ask others to pardon us whenever we have to interrupt them. 6000 years ago, human beings used to eat the meat of other human beings. Now try to teach this lesson to that person who just had someone other’s ribs in his lunch. Tell him that he has to say “excuse me” whenever he interrupts others.

    Again, I did not imply or say that Islam invented it or encouraged it. However, what exactly would you call making it legal in the Quran? Sure, it wasn’t encouraged or mandatory, but making an action legal has the consequence of humans partaking in it, especially if it is a vice or a “forbidden pleasure”, that’s Human Nature 101.

    As for “modern countries”, when do you think Arab and Muslim countries outlawed it? Many Arab countries outlawed slavery between the 1960s and 1990s, and it still exists — illegal, but a blind eye is turned to it — in Mauritania, where an estimated 4% of the population is enslaved, the highest proportion in the world! In contrast, slavery was outlawed in “modern countries” in the 1800s.

  • infinity

    That’s irrelevant. If I bring down a law and claim it is a Divine law, it should be just, appeal to the good side of human nature, and be pleasant. It is not enough to say “but look, it is better than the laws of those other people”. Sorry, slavery is detestable and is a complete violation of inalienable human rights and the concept of equality of all humans, and therefore, should be clearly forbidden. Unfortunately, it is clearly permissible in Islam.

    As I said elsewhere: “Islam phased it out, but did not forbid it — it stays permissible under the right conditions until the end of time.

    I don’t know how you can go about defending slavery. No, it is not enough that it is “discouraged”, it is clearly permissible, and thus, indefensible, and indeed, condemnable.

    Although irrelevant, since you asked, have you read the books of those three (and more) religions you mentioned? If not, how can you claim that they didn’t discourage it? In fact, see the answer below by Okuyorum.

  • Mohamed Sajid

    with all your talk about Islam and you say Islam is just 1400 yrs. Islam is from Adam A.S. we the ummah of Prophet Muhammed (pbub) are 1400yrs. The best Answer for this article. Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) discouraged slavery and put a devise to end it. We thank Allah that slavery ended which prophet detested. If Saddam had applied the same rule, i am sure the politician could have been brought into slavery for $5. There is no need to talk about hypothetical because Islam doesn’t talk about hypothetical things. when khilafa comes it will deal with it.

  • Jaan

    if salves are halaal then BF GF relations , or living relationships would be halaal . as buying slaves or keeping GF is same .. May Allah Forgive us

  • Jdee Rue

    Yes Islam allowed slavery but the ONLY one who can decide that is the ruler AFTER jihaad against the disbeliever. A ruler has the choice either to kill what they capture among the disbelievers or ask ransom for the benefit of the Muslims. Or take them as slaves.

    That is the origin of slavery, after capturing in jihaad.. And the purpose of slavery as Ibn Baaz said, to correct those who were captured by separating them from the evil environment they lived in and starting a new life in a Muslim community to guide them to the path of goodness, save them from evil, purify them from the effects of disbelief and error and make them deserve a better life in which they enjoy security and peace. Who knows, those slaves might become Muslims in the future because of living with them.

    But now we dont have jihaad so there are no slavery..

    Adding to that, although Islam permits slavery but at the same time Allaah has ordered His Messenger [sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam] to encourage emancipation of slaves for the sake of attaining Allaah’s reward. How many slaves men and women were freed in the time of the Prophet Muhammaad and also freeing of slave becomes mandatory from the likes of expiation for false oath, Dhihar (a man likening his wife to an un-marriageable relative).. And Allaah knows best

  • Hanan

    Hello everyone, I accidently came to this article and , I was shocked by the title and after reading some of the comments, I decided to give my point of view to a person calling himself or herself “infinity”
    First of all, your manners towards other commentators as well as Islam is not acceptable and such harsh and negative manners hinders a person from being open-minded and seeing things clearly. Add the fact that it implies the person is clearly ignorant in many aspects, so I advice you to change the way you communicate with others.
    Second, What I have learned and understood from religious scholars concerning this issue is as follows, and anyone is allowed to correct me if I am wrong:
    Slavery existed LONG before Islam, and the most horrific acts against slaves were committed NOT by Muslims who owned slaves at the time, but by Europeans who came all the way to Africa and treated their pets much better than they did the slaves. In fact, Muslims were ordered to treat their slaves like they would treat their own children, Again, MUSLIMS, not the qurraish who were agonizing their slaves for being Muslims were not Muslims. What you have to admit, Mr. “infinity” is that God is wise, and we can only try to understand the purpose behind his laws, judging his laws would be a stupid move. Islam did not prohibit slavery right from the start because the smartest move would be to do it gradually until it is permanently wiped out. And you have to admit that Islam did an excellent job in doing so, how? by making every Muslim LOVE freeing slaves (by setting many laws that reward freeing slaves). Give me one other religion that used this excellent strategy. Now if slavery was accepted in Islam, why set countless rewards and religious laws that rely on setting a slave free? this is the question you should ask instead of attacking Islam and Muslims and attacking other commentators that defend Islam.
    Islam is a beautiful, perfect religion because it is the religion from the only God of the universe. Only those who have pure intentions will understand it, but ill-hearted people will see all good in Islam as evil, partly as a punishment to them so that they cannot see the truth clearly because of their negative behavior from the start.

    Now, having said all of the above, please know that this woman is not a Muslim scholar hence whatever she says is a personal opinion, like my comment and yours and should not be grounds to judge Islam. Only Muslim scholars’ opinion should be used as bases for learning about Islam. Just because a person is a politician does not mean he is a scholar of Islam and I think this woman made a serious mistake by making such opinion and pasting it on Islam, she clearly has no basic understanding of Islam.

  • sagi

    there is comprehensive answer to concept of slavery in islam. keep in mind islam permitted slavery with certain conditions, not invented it.
    https://islamqa.info/en/94840

  • While slavery existed long before Islam, that is no excuse for Islam to continue the horrible, inhuman practice of slaving. Civilized countries have outlawed slavery because that is the right thing to do.

  • The countries you are talking about became civilized just 70 years ago. There are horrible stories of slavery even in those civilized countries. When you talk about Islamic teachings, keep in mind that you are talking about teachings revealed 1400 years ago. Islam talked about rights of slaves at that time when people used to treat them like animals.

    The civilization you are talking about took thousands of years to come. For example, we ask others to pardon us whenever we have to interrupt them. 6000 years ago, human beings used to eat meat of other human beings. Now try to teach this lesson to that person who just had someone other’s ribs in his lunch. Tell him that he has to say “excuse me” whenever he interrupts others.

  • The countries I am talking about were introduced to civilization 70-years ago. that does NOT imply that they have become civilized in any manner.

    Slaves in ancient Islam had NO rights. Those 500,000 per year being rounded up and being harshly enslaved by Moslem slavers today in Nigeria, Niger, Mauritania, the Sudan and other places have no rights.

  • Hanan

    Sir, Muslim does not equal Islam. You are wrong when you said slaves in ancient Islam have no rights. I wont repeat what I already mentioned but I’ll give a simple example. There are Muslim that steal, murder, cheat, whatever does that mean Islam teaches them to do so? obviously not.
    Another thing I want to add, how many Muslims own slaves in their homes? how come there aren’t any Muslims, why isn’t it a common thing within Muslim communities? you see.
    on the other hand I can give you many shocking stories of people that eat the flesh of other people. Not only that this last story I came across was about a Japanese that ate more than 10 women and the court set him free after reasoning with a logic that I cant remember and I don’t even want to remember.
    There are courts in the developed countries you are talking about that give punishments that don’t come close to matching the level of crime committed and here you are debating the wisdom of God concerning the issue of slavery in Islam, completely ignoring the fact that not only would a true Muslim hate even considering owning a slave, he/she would even race to freeing one, if a slave exists in this time because it has high rewards from God. I, for one, would.

  • Hanan

    Sir, Muslim does not equal Islam. What does this mean? Are you saying that a Moslem is not an Islamist?

    You are wrong when you said slaves in ancient Islam have no rights. Some slaves wee granted certain minimal rights, but were denied most rights regarding freedom, choice, movement, and life styles.

    I wont repeat what I already mentioned but I’ll give a simple example. There are Muslim that steal, murder, cheat, whatever does that mean Islam teaches them to do so? obviously not. — Sorry, but in my reading the sira, the Koran, the Ahidth, I find that stealing from non-Moslems, murdering non-Moslems, cheating non-Moslems, enslaving and abusing non-Moslems, was all sanctioned repeatedly in the lessons passed down in this literature, and such is practiced to this date.

    Another thing I want to add, how many Muslims own slaves in their homes? I haven’t been to Saudi and other places, but thee abundant reports of slaves being held. Also, as previously mentioned, 500,000 slaves are taken yearly taken in Africa, so thee must be a place for them, be it a cave, a hutch, or a master’s bedroom.

    how come there aren’t any Muslims, Some of the Black African Moslems of Sudan’s Darfur have been enslaved.

    why isn’t it a common thing within Muslim communities? you see. — It is a common thing, but you can’t or perhaps don’t want to see, understand , or to acknowledge this. It’s called willful ignorance.

    on the other hand I can give you many shocking stories of people that eat the flesh of other people. Please, send me documentary evidence of people eating other people other than cannibals in the Indonesian archipelago.

    Not only that this last story I came across was about a Japanese that ate more than 10 women and the court set him free after reasoning with a logic that I cant remember and I don’t even want to remember. Ok, this is one (1) instance of an insane man doing this type of evil. Jeffrey Dahmer also ate parts of men he murdered. Your telling me about one (1) is not “many”.

    There are courts in the developed countries you are talking about that give punishments that don’t come close to matching the level of crime committed Liberal judges appointed by foolish liberal legislators have allowed this to happen. If I were in an appropriate position, these foolish judges would be fired.

    and here you are debating the wisdom of God concerning the issue of slavery in Islam, — I’m not debating the wisdom of your god concerning the issue of present day slavery in Islam.

    completely ignoring the fact that not only would a true Muslim hate even considering owning a slave. — Not so. Moslems (mostly gulf Oil Country based) Moslems are regularly caught with, and abusing slaves. Several of those terrible slaver Moslems are in prison.

    , he/she would even race to freeing one, if a slave exists in this time because it has high rewards from God. I, for one, would. Give me documentary evidence (not concocted propaganda) about slave owners racing to free slaves.

    Most prostitutes in the Islamic world are slaves (some as young a five years old), sold into “temporary marriages” for a few hours to avoid using the term of pimp and prostitute. But, pimps and prostitutes (slaves) are a true, undeniable fact.

  • Hanan

    Sir,
    Clearly you have the same picture of Islam as the majority of people in this world, Thanks to the media and all the people or groups doing all kinds of evil in the name of Islam. The only reason I replied to your point was that I thought you were not biased. I see now that you have already judged Islam without really knowing it. A lot of evil things happen in the name of Islam, it doesn’t mean Islam is evil, it only means that human beings are capable of making any good in this world seem to be the biggest evil of its time. And since Islam is the true religion of God, Satan, who promised he will never rest until he takes as many from humanity as he can to hell with him, will do whatever it takes to make good seem evil and evil seem good. whether you choose to believe it or not, it all boils down to this. In the Quran God has promised to guide to the truth those who try to get to it, but those that will come with a negative attitude and already a prejudged opinion about Islam will stay astray partly as a punishment to them because they chose not to see.
    Sir, all you or I have to do is google to find the many instances I mentioned, if you are really interested and want to really see the beauty of Islam, drop the negative attitude towards it.
    Do you know how many priests there are that raped women and children ? does that say anything about Christianity? No. Are Hitler and all the psycho leaders in history that killed millions and millions of innocent sole Christians that are carrying out Gods world? No. Not to mention what Israel is doing RIGHT NOW to the Palestinians, does it have anything to do with Islam? NO.
    What literature are you talking about? do you think that reading anything you put your hands on will make you understand what the teaching of Islam are? well I assure you that there are many websites and literatures being prepared day and night to ruin the reputation and true meaning of Islam, so good luck in finding any truth there Sir. If it were as simple as reading a book or literature, I think we would all agree that God would have sent down only books for us, why send prophets or messengers to be guided? why do we have to learn from scholars and read FROM RELIABLE, AUTHENTICATED literatures? yes not any literature sir, it has to be reliable and authenticate. Not every literature you find now and in history is fully truthful. The only book that is perfect is the book of Allah, the Quran, and please don’t tell me it has contradictions and errors and all the war that have been going on for years, others have already went down that road and humbly accepted the Quran as the word of God.
    My point in one sentence: Have the right attitude and be humble to the word of Allah when you read literatures and search for the truth, and be fair. THEN you will start learning the truth about Islam. As to some examples of how the civilized people you are talking about used to treat slaves not very long ago……..
    one example, look at these poor Congolese women and children whose hands were cut off as a punishment to them because the father or husband didn’t do well in rubber picking. The crime was done in Belgium……

    ……….Only 90 years ago, the agents of King Leopold II of Belgium massacred 10 million Africans in the Congo. Cutting off hands as we see in Sierra Leone today, was very much part of Leopold’s repertoire. Today, Leopold’s “rubber terror” has all been swept under the carpet. Adam Hochschild calls it “the great forgetting” in his brilliant new book, King Leopold’s Ghost, recently published by Macmillan. This is a story of greed, exploitation and brutality that Africa and the world must not forget.

    Also the other picture is from “Civilized” people making a human zoo for their entertainment…..This is unbelievable.

  • Hanan

    This is the human zoo , 1958, in Belgium, and Islam1400 years ago was teaching us to ask to be excused if you interrupt someone, as a good person just mentioned and teaching us that all human beings are equal. Now whether you want to deny facts or not or believe to see the truth is your choice.
    Yes I can present to you all the evidence you need, anyone can do it, Sir.
    I can still give you all the evidence for everything I mentioned, but will it make you stop attacking Islam? will it make you consider learning about Islam with clear heart? I don’t know, its your choice.

  • Hanan

    unfortunately, I just lost the whole comment posted as a reply and only the below comment appeared, I’ll try to post my thoughts again. I’ll just add this picture here……

    These are the Congolese women and children whose hands were cut off as a punishment if their fathers did not do well in the rubber plantations. The crime was done by Leopold of Belgium…….Civilized? slave rights in Islam, tell me what were the slave rights of these poor slaves? Islam on the other hand stood up for the rights of slaves, it made countless rewards as the basis for freeing any slaves.

    ……….King Leopold II of Belgium was responsible for the deaths and mutilation of 10 million Congolese Africans during the late 1800’s. The spoils of modern day Belgium owes much to the people of the Congo River Basin.

  • Hanan

    I assumed you were just raising your point, that’s why I replied to it. I see now that you are biased and have
    a prejudged stand on Islam. Everything boils down to this : Satan promised to do his best to take as many people as he can with him to hell, how do you think
    this will be achieved? By taking as many people as possible astray from the
    right path, by blurring the truth in the religion of God, by making people do
    all kinds of evil in the name of Islam to destroy Islam’s image.

    Sir, when you choose to have the wrong image of Islam even before knowing it, you will see all evil in Islam,
    you will not see the truth, because of your negative attitude and because you have already set your mind that all evil comes from Islam. The sad thing is that people with such kind of behavior will sometimes have the truth staring
    them in the face and still say its evil, why? Because they have already decided Islam is evil and they simply cannot accept the truth; partly as a punishment
    from God for having a negative behavior and a prejudging stand in the first place. If you come with a clear heart that has no grudge against Islam and no preformed opinion against it and start reading the AUTHENTICATED literatures FROM RELIABLE SOURCES and ask the right people (not me, or just anyone) like scholars of Islam, you will understand a lot of issues that caused you to form
    the wrong opinion on Islam. But remember, there are countless literatures and websites that work day and night just to mislead people and destroy the image
    and truth of Islam……

    You said every literature you read. Do you think that everything you put your hands on is all correct and
    authentic? As I said, many websites and people out there are working day and night against Islam. And this practice of guiding people astray was happening since Adam and eve set their foot on this earth. Besides, if literature alone
    was enough to send the message of God to people, why were prophets, messengers, sent to people? Why do we need scholar or educated people in the field to teach
    as and answer us when we have questions? If you think that just by reading literatures here and there and watching media and listening to people that hand pick every
    opportunity to depict Islam as evil, if you think you will learn anything about Islam from them, Good luck with that, sir.

    When I said MUSLIM does not equal Islam, what I
    meant is clear:

    I mean all that rape, kill, carry out mass murder and looting, mistreat others in any way, cause anyone agony and
    call themselves Muslims are not following the teachings of Islam, therefore are not representatives of Islam.

    I mean that just as HITLER and all the other evil, psycho leaders in history do not represent the people or
    religion they came from, MUSLIMS, killing other Muslims and non-Muslims, raping,enslaving, torturing, torturing, whatever, are not in any way the representatives of Islam.

    I mean that just as many priests that have been accused of raping women and children and stealing from donations of
    church do not represent the religion, also Muslims committing all kinds of crime do not represent Islam in any way.

    I mean that since Islam is the true religion of God, Satan have made it his first and most important agenda to
    ruin the image of Islam by using this strategy: Making hypocrites introduce themselves as Muslim, even going as far as lying and saying that they are scholars of Islam and twisting and changing the true teachings of Islam and
    presenting it to the general public that have no true basic understanding of Islam or know nothing about it.

    THAT’S what I mean.

    NO, you are wrong, stealing, murdering, cheating, enslaving and abusing a non-Muslim or a Muslim is not only considered evil in Islam, it is prohibited and it is the EXACT OPPOSITE of the teachings of Islam. Whatever you have been reading, it is not the teaching in the Quran
    or the sira of the prophet or any hadith (authenticate hadith sir, not everything you find is reliable). As for the Quran, it’s the word of God and it has NO errors or contradictions, and if you choose to go down the road that so many have and humbly accepted Islam as the true religion of God in the end, go ahead, but I won’t discuss that with you, it is not my place , you can go to the scholars if you wish.

    And no you are wrong, I am not choosing not to see or admit or understand, I know my religion well, Alhamdullillah, Sir and am still learning, that is why I so confidently defend it and try to clarify whatever I can. Besides if you are referring to verses from the Quran,
    do you know how many verses I can present from the bible that tells you to do the most horrible things (that contain unbelievable message in the book that is the word of God )? It is easy to do, especially if you chop out from the
    complete story or take meanings out of context. So please let’s be fair.

    The black Muslims of Darfur, and any other groups that enslave and torture other people are doing it AGAINST THE TEACHINGS OF ISLAM. Why are you not seeing what true Muslims that practice the religion of Islam do? Like Muslims going to poor countries and freeing prisoners whose only crime was that they couldn’t pay the debt they owed so they had to be locked away for years away from their families? Why can’t you see what Muslims that practice the true teachings of Islam do? But maybe you
    should also consider opening your eyes to what ISRAEL is doing to the Palestinians.

    No sir, I have no willful ignorance, I actually have love for this perfect beautiful religion, and my evidence
    is the alarming number of people from all around the world, from almost every country that are reverting to Islam. Alhamdullillah.

    No sir, I think it is you who are willingly choosing to ignore to look for the truth in the correct manner. It is your choice.

    You want documentary on people that eat the flesh of other people? I also have a bonus, did you hear of a
    restaurant that abduct and kill human beings and sell food cooked from the human flesh and organs? Ok. But will it change your negative behavior towards Islam? Or are you just trying to say that I have no evidence for what I
    present? Whatever your reason, enjoy the following:

    Here are 20 (not just one instance) human flesh eaters. Many of them are sane too:

    one more:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otlTRfyXIsI

    There are many many more, all you have to do is check Google or YouTube, but is this enough for you??

    Yes , I am telling you about one instance. You want me to bore you with all the stories? When you can easily Google
    them? Why? What’s the point? What point will I make if I bring all the countless stories I have came across here? Anyway, maybe you can check what I
    have mentioned above.

    Sir, you being in the appropriate position will not be the solution to the problem, the solution to the problems
    of the world would be if Muslims start practicing the true teachings of Islam and people start obeying the creator of the world who obviously knows the solution to problems of all mankind. Following the true religion of God and obeying his commands to do good on earth and stop destruction to man and nature , as he commanded us is the ONLY right way.

    You said you are not debating my God, thank you I am happy to be Allah’s servant.

    You said Muslims are caught abusing slaves, so what’s new? Muslims and non-Muslims abuse and do horrible
    things to slaves and free people as well, abuse and agony caused among human beings is what Islam is teaching against, weather you choose to believe it or not, it’s the truth.

    Few hours marriage is illegal in Islam. Prostitution is considered a BIG sin in Islam. It is far from Islam and
    if some people invent things to make sins acceptable law and call it a Muslim law and call themselves Muslims DOES NOT MEAN it is the teaching of Islam. Pedophile practice is considered one of the worst crimes against human nature even people without religion would be disgusted by it. Islam has since its beginning taught us about human rights, animal rights, women rights, child’s rights, even prohibited
    harming women, children , weak old people and destroying plants and other churches or temples, etc, during WAR-how many countries follow these rules now?
    And here you are accusing Islam of crimes involving pedophile acts. JUST sad and amazing how something so good, so beautiful so truthful as Islam can be portrayed
    as evil so easily.

  • Hanan: Yes, I have an acquired bias about Islam. When I first started my quest to learn about Islam I had no “prejudgment” at all. I was open minded and receptive, but as I progressed to learn the truths and facts about Islam, I found Islam to be very objectionable.

    Satan has, I believe, been having great success in leading Islamists and Moslems down the path to hell. Murder, rape, theft, abusing children (FGM), holding women and non-Moslems as second class citizens, murdering Jews just because they are Jews, wife beating and abuse, are all sins n the eyes of GOD, and are virtues in the eyes of Satan.

    My views on Islam are well and scientifically acquired after long years of studying, observing, and getting to know Islam intimately.

  • Belgian colonizers were not very good people, I agree.

    What about the Janjaweed’s 25-years of raids into southern Sudan and Darfour where they have cut off opposing hands and feet of Christians and Anamists, the breasts of lactating mothers, dumped old people into wells, and destroyed food stocks? Those not left to suffer and die were rounded up as slaves, the males castrated and they have been sold into markets in Arab and African Moslem lands.

  • Hanan: Clearly, I have a comprehensively accurate picture of Islam gleaned from living in Islamic countries for a decade, extensive studies of the Koran, Mohammed’s biography, and parts of the Hadith as well as many modern scholarly, scientific, anthropological studies of Islam as well.

    How can you actually claim: A lot of evil things happen in the name of Islam, but it doesn’t mean that Islam is evil? So much evil comes out of Islam, crucifyng innocent babies, torturing non-Moslems, burning people and all manner of horrors visited on innocent people in the name of Islam, indicate very clearly that there is a huge component of Islam that is evil.

    Allah’s promises are a joke because allah, has declared that he is “the greatest of deceivers” and with the help of Satan he has 1.5 billion deceived believers heading towards hell.

  • Hanan

    Well, whether Islam leads to hell or heaven and Allah’s promises are jokes, we will all stand in front of him one day, lets not try to rush it.

    But the REAL joke is the fact that you are trying to push aside the fact that all the crimes you mentioned, and then some more, have been conducted for years in history and still are by many NON-MUSLIM Leaders and groups of people: When one Muslim commits a crime, the whole world shouts “Islam is evil, terrorist” but when a non-Muslim commits genocide and horrible acts against humanity, the reaction is different. DOUBLE STANDARDS to say the least. Not a surprise though, as long as you are bashing Islam, do it.

    You say Islam is the cause of evil? ok lets see some evidence to back that up shall we?……

    She is nut case . If female slaves are allowed , then male slaves should be allowed too . Already many women are trafficked against their wills . This will accelerate this problem . Wars would be created to get slaves . If we go for non – Muslim slaves , this will create international outrage and no Muslim women will be safe . This is also against international law which all Muslim countries have signed . Nobody is stopping men from marrying . Islam is against prostitution . So how does marrying a woman and buying a slave make any difference . If the woman is talented and beautiful , the slave woman would not come cheap . Islam does not see men as beasts who cant control their urges

  • karam

    i totally agree with u what u have said and appreciate it, few people like the politician mentioned in article is spoiling the name of islam, like they say never judge a book by its cover, hats off to u 🙂

  • karam

    hello Mr u said a while ago in ur previous comments that u haven’t stayed in islamic countries and now u are saying that u have stayed there what i sit makeup ur mind sir, I haven’t been to Saudi and other places, but thee abundant reports of slaves being held. Also, as previously mentioned, 500,000 slaves are taken yearly taken in Africa, those are exactly your words in your previous comment, by just saying i am open minded wont make u one for that u have to act like one,

  • karam

    i guess u copy pasted what u got from internet right, brother first red then understand and then plz comment,

  • Yasir Ali

    instead of slavery she could suggest to stop the wars and aid the persons who are in need. Islam allows the slavery but also Islam destroyed slavery system step by step. i want ask this woman how will she feel if she is a slave of a man???

  • Never said that I had never stayed in Islamic countries. You are putting words in my mouth there, pal.

    I haven’t been to Saudi Arabia, except to pass through airports and go elsewhere. I read the news and understand what I read. Saudis hold slaves in Saudi Arabia. Saudis have been arrested in the USA for holding slaves, or enslaving hired servants and then enslaving them.

    You are entitled to ignore truths and facts, but Moslems are still very active in slave trading.

    ISIS/ISIL has enslaved hundreds if not thousands of Syrian and Iraqi Yazidis and Christians, used them and sold them as sex slaves, and more.

    My book, MOSLEM MEN FEAR WOMEN talks about Islam and slaves. It is based on facts and truths. read it if you dare to get educated.

  • You are grasping at straws and dredging up old – ancient history to justify Islamist slave trading these days.

    Yes, there have been atrocities committed in the past by evil people. The German holocaust was one, and we must be reminded that thousands of Moslems went and joined the Germans in the holocaust against Jews.

    Then, there was the Turkish genocide against Christians, mostly against Armenians, but they also slaughtered Orthodox Greeks and Assyrians. The count probably exceeded two million innocents, martyrs. That took place less than 100 years ago.

  • If slavery is permissible in Islam, than where do you get off saying that Islam is the ONLY “religion” that discouraged it.

    Christianity did the most to end slavery in this world.

    You want examples. Well, the fact that Jews own no slaves is one example. I’ve never seen slaves in Hindu India or Nepal. I’ve never seen slaves in Buddhist South Asia. I’ve never seen slaves in modern Japan, Korea, China. So, I would assume that if they don’t own slaves, slaving is discouraged in those places, right?

  • furqaan

    What were the practical steps which the Quran adopted for the eradication of slavery ?

    It may be seen that the Quran had adopted five steps for the eradication of slavery.

    1. Created a sense of brotherhood.

    The Quran had, firstly, created a notion that both master and slave were brothers, one to the other, by inculcating an awareness that all men were the creations of the same God and were the children of the same parents. “O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).” (Quran 49:13)

    Here, the Quran has cut apart the very root of all forms of narrow mindedness that arose out of the feelings of superior birth. Indeed, the prophet had taught that righteousness was measured not on the basis of colour, race or wealth, but on the basis of God-consciousness alone. “The Arab has no superiority over the non-Arab or the non-Arab over the Arab; the white over the black or the black over the white except in the matter of God-consciousness.” (Tabari)

    Where slaves are mentioned, the Holy Quran remarked that “some amongst you proceed from others.”(Quran:4:25). Here the Quran has made it clear that both master and slave are brothers, one to the other, and that it is circumstances alone which force slavery upon some people.

    2. It created an awareness concerning the rights of the slave.

    The slave was a mere commodity item in all ancient societies. His lot was confined to duties alone. His obligation was simply to strive for an increase in the comforts and luxury enjoyed by the master and in this regard, there was to be no compromise whatsoever. It was a paramount necessity that the slave was in good shape in order that he be able to work for his master. Indeed, it was for this reason, and for this reason alone, that he was provided for with food. They (i.e., the slaves) were housed in yards which sufficed to accomodate not even the cattle and other livestock. As for the clothes that they were provided with, they were sufficient not even to cover their nakedness and, that too, filthy pieces of clothes they were!

    Islam brought about a transformation in the situation. It taught that the slave was the brother of the master and that he had rights as well. The prophet commanded: “They are your brothers and relatives! Let each one provide for the brother under him with the food that he himself eats and with the clothes that he himself wears. Place not upon them any task that is overbearing for them. If you do assign them a difficult task, you must help them in its execution.” (Bukhari, Muslim)

    The duty of the slave, in primitive societies, was never confined to mere labour. He was also doomed to be at the receiving end of his master’s sadistic pleasure-seekings. The most cruel flogging while at work! To be always ready to kill and to be killled for the sake of his master’s pleasure! TheQuran commanded that such a state of affairs must change. It instructed in the humane and proper treatment of the slaves. “Serve Allah, and join not any partners with Him; and do good – to parents, kinsfolk, orphans, those in need, neighbours who are of kin, neighbours who are strangers, the companion by your side, the way-farer (ye meet), and what your right hands possess: for Allah loveth not the arrogant, the vainglorious.”(Quran 4:36)

    The prophet had clearly stated, “If anyone kills a slave, we shall kill him. If anyone maims a slave, we shall maim him as well. If anyone castrates his slave, we shall castrate him.”(Muslim, Abu Dawood)

    From being the choice commodity for the master’s choicest desire, the slave was being transformed into a being with his very own personality and rights. It was in a society in which existed the heinous practice of castrating slaves that the prophet had, in the most unambiguous terms, declared that the master who castrates his slave will, in turn, ‘be castrated by us.’ The slaves were castrated in order that their sexual impulses be destroyed, whereby, they could then be made to work like animals. Islam, which prohibited this practice, particularly instructs that means should be made available for the satisfaction of the sexual instincts of the slave also. “Marry those among you who are single, and the virtuous ones among your slaves, male or female: if they are in poverty, Allah will give them means out of His grace: for Allah is Ample-giving, and He knoweth all things.” (Quran 24:32)

    Furthermore, the Quran prohibited the system of forcing female slaves into prostitution. “Let those who find not the wherewithal for marriage keep themselves chaste, until Allah gives them means out of His grace. And if any of your slaves ask for a deed in writing (for emancipation) give them such a deed if ye know any good in them; yea, give them something yourselves out of the means which Allah has given to you. But force not your maids to prostitution when they desire Chastity, in order that ye may make a gain in the goods of this life. But if anyone compels them, yet, after such compulsion, is Allah Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (Quran 24:33)

    The prophet had taught against even uttering anything that might injure the self-respect of the slave. The prophet, who had taught that had made it clear that the slave, too, enjoyed self-respect upon which none had the right to trespass. The prophet had admonished his companion, Abu Dharr, who, in an angry tussle with his slave, had called him ‘the son of a black woman’, in the following manner: “ O Abu Dharr…. There remains in you something of the culture of the days of Jahiliyya.”

    Islam teaches that the slave has the right to become even a leader and that in the event that he does get appointed as a leader, it is obligatory to obey him. “Even if it be a negro slave, with hair like dried grapes, who is appointed as your leader, you must hear and obey him.” Abu Hurairah, the companion of the prophet, once exhorted a man who had his slave walking behind the mount on which he was travelling, “Seat him behind thee for he is thy brother and it is the same soul as yours that is within him.”

    Islam gave new meaning to the relation between master and slave by insisting that the master and the slave both had the same soul. It is true, neverthless, that the slave does fall under the jurisdiction of the master. However, the master is duty-bound to fullfill the rights of the slave. It is his duty to meet the slave’s requirements of food, clothing, sexual gratification and the like. The slave is never to be harmed. He should not be put into difficulty by entrusting him with burdensome tasks as well. In such fashion did Islam create a revolution of sorts in raising the slave, for the first time in history, to the position of a free man.

    It was through this way that it became possible for Islam to bridge the wide gap that existedQuran commanded that such a state of affairs must change. It instructed in the humane and proper treatment of the slaves. “Serve Allah, and join not any partners with Him; and do good – to parents, kinsfolk, orphans, those in need, neighbours who are of kin, neighbours who are strangers, the companion by your side, the way-farer (ye meet), and what your right hands possess: for Allah loveth not the arrogant, the vainglorious.”(Quran 4:36)

    The prophet had clearly stated, “If anyone kills a slave, we shall kill him. If anyone maims a slave, we shall maim him as well. If anyone castrates his slave, we shall castrate him.”(Muslim, Abu Dawood)

    From being the choice commodity for the master’s choicest desire, the slave was being transformed into a being with his very own personality and rights.

He should not be put into difficulty by entrusting him with burdensome tasks as well. In such fashion did Islam create a revolution of sorts in raising the slave, for the first time in history, to the position of a free man.

    It was through this way that it became possible for Islam to bridge the wide gap that existed between the mental states of the master and the slave. The end result of this revolution was that the owner was emancipated from the belief that the slave was a commodity on which could be carried out his choicest desire while the slave was freed of the notion that he was doomed to a fate in which he was to bear, and to be patient and labouring always.

    3. Declared the emancipation of slaves to be an act of righteousness.

    By declaring the slave’s to be an existence which had rights of its own, Islam had technically made slavery non-existent. Without stopping at that point, however, it went further by turning to a course of action which would, in time, serve to eliminate the system in a very practical sense indeed. This practical step which Islam had adopted to make slavery virtually non-existent was its act of declaring the emancipation of slaves to be an act of righteousness. The position of the prophet as regards the emancipation of slaves was such that it only reinforced the meaning of the Quranic reference that “Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find mentioned in their own (Scriptures) – In the Taurat and the Gospel; for he commands them what is just and forbids them what is evil; he allows them as lawful what is good (and pure) and prohibits them from what is bad (and impure) : He releases them from their heavy burdens and from the yokes that are upon them. So it is those who believe in him, honour him, help him, and follow the Light which is sent down with him, it is they who will prosper.” (Quran 7:157)

    The Quranic verse which makes it clear that the emancipation of slaves is an act of the highest virtue goes as follows: “And what will explain to thee the path that is steep? (It is) freeing the bondman; or the giving of food in a day of privation, to the orphan with claims of relationship, or to the indigent (down) in the dust.” (Quran 90:12-16)

    As far as the emancipation of slaves was concerned, the prophet had exhorted his companions towards it by, firstly, making an example himself. He set free the slaves who were in his possession. His companions, too, followed the same path. In this context, it may be seen that Abu Bakr (t), a man of prominence amongst the companions, spent countless wealth in purchasing slaves from the pagans for setting them free.

    There are numerous sayings of the prophet which encourage the freeing of slaves. “If anyone sets free a believing slave, each of his body parts will be set free from Hell so much so that it will be the hand for a hand, the leg for a right up to the sexual organ for the sexual organ.” (Bukhari, Muslim)

    Once the companion, Abu Dharr (t), asked the prophet, “Which is the highest act in the emancipation of slaves ?” The prophet replied, “To set free the most valuable slave of the master.”

    The prophet, while talking about those who become deserving of God’s reward twice, said, “He who confers a proper behaviour upon the female slave under him, then gives her the best education, sets her free and then marries her will become entitled to a double reward.” (Bukhari, Muslim)

    Thus it was that the believers, both during the time of the prophet and afterwards, began to set slaves free expecting, in return, the reward of the Lord Creator itself. Besides this, a situation came up wherein even the wealth of Zakat began to be used for the emancipation of slaves. It may be seen from history that during the reign of Umar bin Abdul Azeez, when there was not a single needy person to accept the wealth of Zakat, this money was used to purchase slaves in order to set them free.

    4. Emancipation of slaves was made the act of expiation for many types of sin.

    In addition to encouraging the believers towards its commission by declaring the emancipationof slaves to be a virtuous deed, Islam recommended it as an act of expiation for many types of sin. The atonement for sins like unintentional murder and breaking one’s vow of not approaching his wife was the freeing of one slave. As for those who were not ready to free slaves in expectation of Divine reward alone, the command which made the emancipation of slaves an atoning act for sins committed, nevertheless, made it necessary for them to do so.

    5. The facility of providing the slave with his freedom in exchange of the ransom value was made possible.

    Let us suppose that it was still not possible for a slave to become free by any of the means listed above. Even then freedom is not impossible for him. Islam has opened a way out for any slave who desires his freedom. This becomes possible through a freedom deed known by the technical name Mukathaba. If the yearning for freedom becomes entrenched within, it becomes possible for any slave to become a free man through the Mukathaba. The master and the slave get together to decide upon a ransom value and a time-frame for its payment on mutually agreeable terms. It is further possible for the slave to go out and work to earn this ransom value himself. Thus, the slave is enabled to pay the ransom value in instalments. With the completion of this payment he becomes a free man.

    Through this facility, Islam has made possible the opportunity for fulfilling the dream of independence of any slave in whose heart there, indeed, arises such a desire. What if the slave, after having written down the document for his freedom, is unable to pay the ransom amount within the stipulated time period? Islam has provided the solution for this as well. One of the eight heads under which the Zakat wealth is to be expended is the emancipation of slaves (Quran 9:60). If it happens that a slave is unable to pay his ransom value according to the Mukathaba, he can approach the Baithulmal (public treasury) for the purpose. It is the responsibility of those who handle it to set the man free by making use of a stipulated amount from it. Here Islam has devised a way which makes use of the wealth of the wealthy to emancipate slaves.

    As far as the problem of slavery is concerned, Islam adopted a line of action which provided for the freedom from the binding chains by teaching the slave what freedom actually means and by enabling them to free themselves from dependence on others. In reality, there has been no other course of action to which anyone could point and say that that was a better way than the method adopted by Islam in the case of slavery. If that is to be really appreciated it would be necessary to view the problem from the perspective of the time and the society in which it prevailed as an established institution in itself.

  • furqaan

    Slavery, in one form or the other was prevalent in almost all parts of the world. The Old Testament of the Bible, which describes the ancient tales of Israeli society, is replete with many accounts concerning slavery. It can be seen that the tradition of selling people existed during the time of the patriarch prophet, Abraham, itself. (Genesis 17:13,14). It is the commandment of the Bible that prisoners-of-war are to be enslaved (Deuteronomy 20:10,11). The Bible, which permits the torture of the slave by the master, nevertheless, stresses the point that the slave is not to be killed during the course of torturing. The law which prevailed, in this matter, amongst the Israeli society was that, “If a man beats his male or female slave with a rod and the slave dies as a direct result, he must be punished, but he is not to be punished if the slave gets up after a day or two, since the slave is his property.’’ (Exodus 21:20,21)

    The instituion of slavery was prevalent both during, and after, the time of Jesus Christ. There has been nothing from among the sayings of Jesus, which serve to show the treatment that was to be meted out to the slaves. If, the statements: “Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ. Obey them not only to win their favour when their eyes is on you, but like slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart. Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men, because you know that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good be does, whether he is slave or free. And masters, treat your slaves in the same way. Do not threaten them, since you know that he who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no favouritism

    with him.” (Ephesians 6:5-9) and “Slaves, obey your earthly mastersin everything; and do it, not only when their eye is on you and to win their favour, but with sincerity of heart and reverence for the Lord.” (Colossians 3:22) are excepted , there is nothing in the letters of Paul which deal with slavery. It can be seen that the cruel system of slavery that prevailed in the Graeco-Roman tradition continued to exist without any change, whatsoever, even after its Christianization. It is of greater pertinence to note that the official religion of the Roman civilization which boasted of its own tales of a cruel, and barbaros form of slavery, was Christianity.

  • Let’s be clear.

    Centuries ago, slavery was common world-wide. This is no longer the case. We’re talking about modern day (as in today) slavery in Moslem countries, and this is STILL being practiced by MOSLEMS, MUSLIMS, ISLAMISTS.

    Quit trying to dodge the issue by yammering about ancient history.

  • furqaan

    Well..I am an Indian living saudi arabia…I have no idea about what you are saying. You may be more closer to islamist so that you know about the slavery which they are practicing…

  • Ayub Alam

    Maids are not slave in Saudi Arabia, but how they are treated I know very well. When you allow woman as slave then she will be treated exactly like animal.

  • karam

    Lol jim horn, u can have ur own opinion about what. Islam is but the fact will stay same what true islam is and who true muslims are, are u talking about ISIS OR ISIL or whatever name they call themself , we eont consider them as muslims because muslim is not described my the attire or appearance he is of muslim is described by his or her way of life and acts, no where in islam it says to kill humans, and if u have written ur thoughts and fantacy about islam i think u must be aware of a journalist who was freed from the clutches of that eveil organization he said he never saw a quran withthem, bro sorry to say with all due respect u sound like a half pot which makes lots of noise, by this iam not saying we dont have black sheep in our comunity i accept that yes we do have as every community has but why is that u guys just highlight those black sheeps and ignore many many good people of our community, and who is getting killed by those evils, even i can show u the proofs about who formed them what was the purpose and whome they are serving, so my advice to u instead of being a half pot try to fill it with logical and true fact so that the pot is full
    May he blesss u and guide u to the truth
    Have a blessed day bro
    Peace

  • karam

    Jim horn, here only i can know how much knowledge u have about islam and muslims bro, try to correct its muslims not moslem, because there is no follower by the name u have mentioned lol

  • karam

    Bro its muslims not moslems lol plz first correct ur spelling or pronounciation

  • karam

    Misss its islam not islum

  • English dictionaries recognize two (2) spellings, one is Muslim, and the other is Moslem. I can use either as I please, and it pleases me to use the “Moslem” spelling.

  • LOL: I know that some people are Muslims, but many are Moslem. Mohammed was a Moslem. Now, you may understand what I understand.

    Now, take your takiyya and go somewhere else. It won’t work on me.

    4:24
    “And [also prohibited to you are all] married women except those your right
    hands possess. [This is] the decree of Allah upon you. And lawful to you
    are [all others] beyond these, [provided] that you seek them [in
    marriage] with [gifts from] your property, desiring chastity, not
    unlawful sexual intercourse. So for whatever you enjoy [of marriage]
    from them, give them their due compensation as an obligation. And there
    is no blame upon you for what you mutually agree to beyond the
    obligation. Indeed, Allah is ever Knowing and Wise.”

    4:25

    “And whoever among you cannot [find] the means to marry free, believing
    women, then [he may marry] from those whom your right hands possess of
    believing slave girls. And Allah is most knowing about your faith. You
    [believers] are of one another. So marry them with the permission of
    their people and give them their due compensation according to what is
    acceptable. [They should be] chaste, neither [of] those who commit
    unlawful intercourse randomly nor those who take [secret] lovers. But
    once they are sheltered in marriage, if they should commit adultery,
    then for them is half the punishment for free [unmarried] women. This
    [allowance] is for him among you who fears sin, but to be patient is
    better for you. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.”

    Source: quran.com

    As it says in the Qu’ran, to marry a slave girl, you must marry them with the permission of their people, give due compensation, they should be chaste, and neither should commit unlawful intercourse randomly nor take secret lovers. You must also seek them with gifts from your property.

    Sorry out of the hundreds of comments here none actually quoted the Qu’ran, nor does the person in the article. I found that rather astounding, shall we go to the source of the subject in question? No…let’s bounce around it! Well, we could just check the source and bring a quietus to this debate…no that would be too logical!

  • Mr. Mick

    “except those your right hands possess”. You missed the point. That is why Quran must be interpreted by Qualified Ulema.

  • P P

    I disagree, you missed the point. That is why Allah stated anyone can read the Qu’ran and not only ‘qualified ulema’ can dictate its rules or interpretation, for obvious implications. Furthermore, I loathe the word interpretation, there is no interpretation, there is truth and there is falsehood, we do need to interpret which is correct.

  • infinity

    with all your talk about Islam and you say Islam is just 1400 yrs. Islam is from Adam A.S.

    You need to read my comment again, as that’s exactly what i said, that Islam came with Adam.

    We thank Allah that slavery ended which prophet detested.

    Really, he detested it? Would you happily take part in an action you detest?

  • Zara Laskar

    OMG, i just read this article. Clearly, this woman seriously needs to take a fiqh class, the higher levels of Islamic knowledge. People can’t just jump to the conclusion that Islam allows slavery. It does not and HAS NOT condoned it. People must understand the history in which Islam came to which already had slavery. The rules that Allah revealed about it were pertaining to those times. Remember, slavery was practiced EVERYWHERE, even in the land of Romans, Greeks, Persians, Jews and Christians in those times. It was the foundation of all societies and for it to be removed right away would mean that the entire society would collapse, which is why Allah gave the people methods to end slavery i.e. ‘buy a slave and free them’ or ‘free 2 slaves and the sin is removed’ etc. Never was it mentioned to keep slaves and continue it as a system. The goal was to better society and for all people to become equals. So, when I read statements like this woman’s, the thoughts that come to my mind are like “why do you want to go backwards in civilization? Why not move forward?” Like seriously….Those men who have high sexual desires also have a remedy and that is fasting as recommended by Islam. And if they cant afford many wives then perhaps, they should attend a sex addicts meeting and find their match their. Apparently, there are loads of people in the west who can meet their sexual demand,

  • Revathi Varma

    Why people thinking woman is a toy for sex . All humans have same right to live in the earth .one day woman’s broken this non scene rules specially Muslim ladies .

  • Ahmed z

    sorry for that woman and illiterate and lusty scholars, Islam doesn’t permit the sex slave or adultery. i have read the verses of Quran and those verses are interpreted wrongly here . there are condition in which Islam give you solution and save you and girl to commit sin.

    ” As for marrying slaves, it is something permissible under two conditions: first, if one is unable to pay the dowry of a free woman. Second, if there is fear of committing adultery if one doesn’t get married. This is clarified by the following verse: “And whose is not able to afford to marry free, believing women, let them marry from the believing maids whom your right hands possess. This is for him among you who feareth to commit sin. But to have patience would be better for you.” (An-Nisaa’: 25)

    This verse shows that Muslim men should abstain from illicit relations and seek enjoyment through marriage to free women or through their female slaves.

    In conclusion, Allah has forbidden certain types of behavior and permitted other kinds of behavior as a safeguard to the individual and to the society. Allah has forbidden fornication and adultery. However, in the case of captives whom your right hands posses, it’s something necessitated by the special circumstances which were created when the Muslims were at war.
