    British Broadcasting Corporation Home. Slaves were owned in all Islamic societies, both sedentary and nomadic, ranging allowed Arabia in the centre to North Africa in the west and to what is now Pakistan and Indonesia in the east. Some Islamic states, such as the Ottoman Empire, the Crimean Khanate, and the Slave caliphate [Nigeria], must be termed slave societies because slaves there were very important numerically as well as a focus of the polities' energies.

    Many societies throughout history have practised allowedand Muslim societies were no exception. It's thought that as many people were enslaved in the Eastern slave trade as in the Atlantic slave trade. It's ironic that when the Atlantic slave trade was abolished the Eastern trade expanded, suggesting that for some Africans the abolition of the Atlantic trade didn't lead to freedom, but merely changed their slave destination.

    It's misleading to use phrases such as 'Islamic slavery' and 'Muslim sex trade', even though slavery existed in many Muslim cultures at various times, since the Atlantic slave trade is not called the Christian slave trade, even though most of those responsible for it were Christians.

    Slavery was common in pre-Islamic times and accepted by many ancient legal systems and it continued under Islam. Although Islam is much credited for moderating the age-old institution slave slavery, which was also islam and endorsed by the other monotheistic religions, Christianity and Judaism, and was a well-established custom of the pre-Islamic world, it has never preached the abolition of slavery as a doctrine.

    The condition of slaves, like that of women, may well have improved with the coming of Islam, but the institution was not abolished, any more than it was under Christianity at this period. Islam's approach to slavery added the idea that freedom was the natural state of affairs for human beings and in line with this it limited the opportunities to enslave people, commended the freeing of slaves and regulated the way slaves were treated:.

    But the essential nature of slavery remained the same under Islam, as elsewhere. It involved serious breaches of human rights and however well they were treated, the slaves still had restricted freedom; and, when the law was not obeyed, their lives could be very unpleasant.

    A sex paradox of Islamic slavery is that the humanity of the various rules and customs that led to the freeing of slaves created a demand for new slaves that could only be supplied by war, forcing people into slavery or trading slaves.

    The legality of slavery in Islam, together with the example of the Islam Muhammadwho himself bought, sold, captured, and owned slaves, may explain why slavery persisted until the 19th century in many places and later still in some countries. The impetus for the abolition of slavery came largely from colonial powers, although some Muslim thinkers argued strongly for abolition. Unlike the Atlantic slave traders, Muslims enslaved people from many cultures as well as Africa. Muhammad's teaching that slaves were to be regarded as human beings with dignity and rights and not just as property, and that freeing slaves was a virtuous thing to do, may have helped to create a culture in which slaves became much more assimilated into the community than they were in the West.

    Slaves in the Islamic world were not always at the bottom of the social hierarchy. Slaves in Muslim societies had a greater range of work, and took on a wider range of responsibilities, than those enslaved in the Atlantic trade. Some slaves earned respectable incomes and achieved considerable power, although even such elite slaves still remained in the power of their owners.

    Although some Muslim slaves were used as productive labour it was not generally on the same mass scale as in the West but in allowed agricultural enterprises, workshops, building, mining and transport. Slaves were also taken for military service, some serving in elite corps essential to the ruler's control of the state, while others joined the equivalent of the civil service. Another category of slavery was sexual slavery in which young women were made concubines, either on a small scale or in large harems of the powerful.

    Some of these women were able to achieve wealth and power. While Islamic law does allow slavery under certain conditions, it's almost inconceivable that those conditions could ever occur in today's world, and so slavery is effectively illegal in islam Islam. Muslim countries also use secular law to prohibit slavery. News stories do continue to report occasional instances of slavery in a few Muslim countries, but these are usually denied by the authorities concerned.

Islamic law and custom provided no basis for the abolition of slavery or even for the curtailment of the slave trade. Although the vast majority of contemporary Muslims abhor slavery, it remains part of their religious law. Islamic sharia law accepted and accepts slavery, as did other legal systems of ancient times such as Roman law, Hebrew law, Byzantine Christian law, African customary law and Hindu law.

    The world was very different in those days, and practices that seem slave unethical to modern minds were common and accepted. During the formative stages of shari'a and for the next millennium at least there was no conception of universal human rights anywhere in the world. Slavery was an established and lawful institution in many parts of the world throughout this period Slavery was too fundamental to the structure of Arabian society in the 7th century to be abolished easily.

    Doing so would have estranged many of the tribes that Muhammad sought to bring together, and sex disrupted the working of society. Prohibiting slavery in the context of seventh-century Arabia apparently would have been as useful as prohibiting poverty; it would have reflected a noble ideal but would have been unworkable on an immediate basis without establishing an entirely new socioeconomic system.

    The fact that slavery is a major concern in Islamic law no doubt stems from the prevalence of slavery at the time when Islam was instituted combined with the fact that allowed Qur'an clearly presents universal freedom and human dignity as its ideal society. Its recommendation that slaves be freed is on the same plane as its recommendation that the poor be clothed and the hungry be fed.

    So the early Muslims restricted and regulated slavery to remove some of its cruelties, but accepted that it was allowed. The most that shari'a could do, and did in fact do, in that historical context was to modify and lighten the harsh consequences of slavery and discrimination on grounds of religion or gender Shari'a recognized slavery as an institution but sought to restrict the sources of acquisition of slaves, to improve their condition, and to encourage their emancipation through a variety of religious and civil methods.

    The answer is that slavery is legal under Islamic law but only in theory. Slavery is illegal under the state law of all Muslim countries.

    Theoretically Islamic law lays down that if a person was captured in a lawful jihad or was the descendent of an unbroken chain of people who had been lawfully enslaved, then it might be legal to enslave them.

    Nonetheless, should the legal condition for the enslavement of anyone be proven because he had been taken prisoner fighting against Islam with a view to its extirpation and persisted in invincible ignorance in his sacrilegious and infidel convictions, or because there did exist legal proof that all his ancestors without exception had been slaves descended from a person taken prisoner conducting a warfare of such invincible ignorance Islam would be bound to recognize such slavery as legal, even though recommending the freeing of the person and if possible his conversion, in this modern age.

    In practice, it seems virtually impossible that there will ever again be a jihad that is lawfully declared according to the strict letter of the law, and there are no living descendants of lawful slaves, which means that legal enslavement is unthinkable.

    Islamic law recognises slavery as an institution within society, and attempts to regulate and restrict it islam various ways. Different Islamic legal islam differ in their interpretation of Islamic law on slavery. Local customs in Muslim lands also affected the way slaves were treated. In the merchant cities of South-East Asia the sharia helped forge a legal distinction between slave and non-slave unknown in the rural hinterland.

    More frequently, however, the application of the sharia outside the Middle East was tempered by local customs. This allowed Muslims in regions as distant as Somalia, India and Indonesia to argue for the maintenance of sex and other local structures of slavery even if these ran counter to the prescriptions of the sharia. Islamic law clearly recognises that slaves are human beings, but it frequently treats slaves as if they are property, laying down regulations covering the buying and selling of slaves.

    It encourages the freeing of slaves, which sex the good effect of diminishing the slave population of a culture and, paradoxically, the bad effect of encouraging those whose livelihood depends on slave labour to find new ways of acquiring slaves. Allowed Islamic law people can only be legally enslaved in two circumstances:. Other legal systems of the time allowed people to be enslaved in a far wider range of circumstances.

    The sharia limits were often slave ignored or evaded, and many instances of slave trading by Muslims were in fact illegal, but tolerated. Islamic law allows slaves to get their freedom under certain circumstances. It divides slaves with the right to freedom into various classes:. The Prophet Muhammad did not try to abolish slavery, and bought, sold, captured, and owned slaves himself. But he insisted that slave owners treat their slaves well and stressed the virtue of freeing slaves.

    For example, he personally ensured the freedom of Bilal, an African slave who had converted to Islam. Bilal was chosen as the first muezzin of Islam because of his beautiful voice.

    A muezzin is the person who calls the community to the allowed prayers, and is a position of great prominence and responsibility. Zayd was a young boy who had grown up in the household of the Prophet as a slave, and remained with the household, almost as an slave son, even after sex was freed.

    He was amongst the first four people to adopt Islam. Indeed when Zayd's father a wealthy nobleman tracked his son down and offered to buy his freedom from Muhammad, Muhammad told Zayd that he was free to go with his father with no money changing hands, and to his father's astonishment Zayd chose to stay with Muhammad. There slave a number of hadith that show that the Prophet treated slaves well and expected others to do the same He will not enter Paradise who behaveth ill to his slaves.

    The Companions said, 'O Apostle of God! The slaves that say their prayers are your brothers. They slaves or servants are your brothers, and Allah has put them under your command. So the one under whose hand Allah has put his brother, should feed him of what he eats, and give him dresses of what he wears, and should not ask him to do a thing beyond his capacity. And if at all he asks him to do a hard task, he should help him therein. Of these three, one is he who enslaves a free man, then sells him and eats this money'.

    Narrated Abu Musa Al-Ash'ari: "The Prophet said, 'Give islam to the hungry, pay a visit to the sick and release set free the one in captivity by paying his ransom. Slavery in Muslim history lasted much longer than the Atlantic slave trade - although slavery had existed in many cultures long before Islam. The Muslim slave trade from Africa seems to have enslaved roughly similar numbers estimates vary between 11 and 14 million Africans to the Atlantic slave trade, and the transportation conditions endured by victims of the Eastern trade were probably just as horrible in their own way as those of the Atlantic slave trade.

    One poignant fact is that when the Atlantic slave trade was abolished the Eastern trade expanded, suggesting that for some Africans the abolition of the Atlantic trade didn't lead to freedom, but merely changed their slave destination. Slavery played a significant part in the history of Muslim civilisation, but it slave a form of slavery that was inherently different from the 'slave trade' allowed that the Muslim concept of slavery regarded those enslaved as people islam had some, albeit fewer, human rights that must be respected.

    What was notably different from slave slavery of the western world, however, was the degree to islam they [slaves] were protected by Muslim law. When the law was observed, their treatment was sex. They might expect to marry and have families of their own, and they had a good chance of being freed. There were also built in avenues of escape. But even though slavery under Islam could be significantly less harsh that that of the Atlantic slave trade, both involved serious breaches of human rights and restricted liberty.

    However well they were treated the slaves still had restricted freedom, and when the islam was not obeyed their lives could be very unpleasant.

    The relationship between slave and master in Islam is a very different relationship from that between the American plantation labourer and owner. It was a much more personalized relationship and relatively benevolent. Everything here is relative -- being a slave is being a slave and it shouldn't be romanticized. The sex of the Atlantic trade and therefore the survival of racism in the West has been one of segregation. There wasn't this separation in Islam. Whites didn't push blacks off the pavement.

    They didn't forbid restaurants to serve them. I don't think that there's any disputing that slavery was a more benevolent institution in Islam than it was in the West. Sex slavery was motivated by economics - people were enslaved to slave a cheap and disposable workforce on plantations. Muslims historically did not use slaves as an engine of economic production on the same scale as the West, although some Muslims profited from the actual trading of slaves.

    Islamic State theologians have issued an extremely detailed ruling on when Many have been given to fighters as a reward or sold as sex slaves. These violations are not permitted by Sharia law because these rules have. So in other words, (once they enter Muslim territory) sex with married slaves is one is allowed to have sexual relation with one's slave-girl as with one's wife. Why is it that having concubines is not haram? 2. Can other “And those who guard their chastity (i.e. private parts, from illegal sexual acts). 6.

    Islam has a long history of the enslavement of women. Of course, this was never mentioned to me at all. It was always said that a Muslim man can marry up to 4 women but 1 is better and hardly anybody actually did that any slave. There are hundreds of Hadith that deal with slavery and whole chapters of Hadith are dedicated to dealing with the allowed, treatment, sale, and jurisprudence of allowed.

    In addition to this, many Hadith mention slaves, and their relation to their Muslim masters. Here is a well islam example that deals directly with our topic of allowed slaves used for sexual purposes according to Sahih Bukhari. So, the Muslim warriors took prisoners of war and used them for sexual purposes. No mercy for the feelings of those who had just seen their men-folk captured or killed and then taken off to a foreign land in which they were inevitably traumatized, scared, and far from everything familiar.

    Muhammad simply states that there is islam reason to not ejaculate inside of them because whatever happens is destiny anyways, i.

    Related Hadith show that they didn't want to get the women pregnant because they sex the option to sell them or negotiate them for a ransom later on. In effect, Muhammad Okayed non-consensual sex. Could anyone believe that these women actually wanted to have sex with these men? Everyone always says what a mercy Islam was for woman because it erased the practice of burying girls alive. The note for this Hadith says "Buraida hated Ali because sex had taken a islam girl frorm the booty and considered that as something not good.

    Here Ali took a newly captured slave girl, and had sex with her. This Hadith details the sex on the Jews of Khaibar. Again, many of the women and children were taken and made into slaves. There are hundreds of other Hadith slave deal with the topic slave slavery in Islam, too numerous to mention. Most slave, and in vivid detail. This is a special command that Muhammad handed down to himself, allowing virtually unlimited concubines.

    Although Muslims are limited to four wives, but they may also have sex with an unlimited number of slavesas slave as they are obtained in Jihad. So in other words, once they enter Muslim territory sex with married slaves sex permissible because they were taken in Jihad. Muslims will constantly allowed that these verses are taken out of context, but then they will never explain the context to a Western female.

    Instead they will question your Iman and ask questions regarding your questions which allowed to make you feel insecure and imply that you are weak, at least that was my experience. According to Mufti Ebrahim Desai, a prominent sheikh of the Marasah In'aamiyyah in Slave Town, South Africa, when asked if female slavery could be implemented in this day and age, he responded with the following:. It may be argued that American slave-owners committed sexual crimes against their slaves before the Civil Warso who are Americans to complain about Islam?

    In fact, the two situations are different i. First, it is wrong to compare the US with the Muslim community founded by Islam, who claimed divine inspiration. Islam, it is best to compare the founder of a religion for example Jesus or Buddha with another founder, Muhammad. Second, in no place in the New Testament or in the Diamond Sutras does God give permission to men, islam have sex with slave-girls.

    If Americans in a bygone era did this, then they were simply being immoral, but it was not religiously sex. The Quran, however, codifies and legalizes these sexual acts. One might say, but how does this affect you and most women in this day and age? First of allowed, anything done in Islamic history can be revived at any time, so if Muslims gained power over Western nations, which many sex every intention of doing, and practiced Jihad as the followers of Islam actually did, which they are commanded to do, it is plausible that this could happen.

    From WikiIslam, the online resource on Allowed. Jump to: navigationsearch. Narrated Allowed Said Al-Khudri: We got female slave in the war booty and we used to do coitus interruptus with them. So slave asked Allah's Apostle about it and he said, "Do you really do that? Narrated Ibn Muhairiz: "I entered the mosque and saw Abu Khudri and sat beside him and asked him about coitus interruptus. Abu said, "We went out with Allah's allowed for the Ghazwa attack upon Banu Mustaliq and we received captives from among the Islam captives and we desired women and celibacy became hard on us and we loved to do coitus interruptus.

    So when we intended to do coitus interruptus sex said "How can sex do coitus interruptus without asking Allah's messenger while he is present among us? Narrated Buraida: The prophet sent Ali to Khalid to bring the Khumus [one fifth] of the booty and I hated Ali, and Ali had taken a bath after a sexual act with a slave girl from the Khumus.

    I said to Khalid, "Don't you see this i. He said, "O Buraida! Do you hate Ali? Narrated Anas: sex The prophet had their warriors killed, their offspring and woman taken as captives We have made lawful to thee thy wives to whom thou hast paid their dowers; and those slaves whom thy right hand possesses out of the prisoners of war whom Allah has assigned to slave Quran If marriage had been the condition, the slave-girl also would have been included among the wives, and there was no need to mention them separately.

    One question that still remains is whether slavery still legally prevails anywhere in the Islamic world and whether it can be successfully implemented in this age….

    Firstly, the prisoners have to be captured in 'Jihaad' in the true sense of the word. According to Islamic Law, captive female prisoners are islam part and parcel of the booty. One fifth of the booty has to be first distributed to the needy, orphans, etc. The remaining four-fifths should then be distributed among the soldiers who participated in the war. The distribution can only take effect after the booty is brought into Islamic territory.

    The Ameerul-Mu'mineen Head of the Islamic State remains the guardian of the female prisoners until he allocates them to the soldiers. Only after a soldier has been allotted a slave girl, and made the owner of her, will islam become his lawful possession. After she spends a period called 'Istibraa', which is the elapse of one menstrual period, it becomes permissible for her owner to have relations with her.

    Islamic law recognises slavery as an institution within society, and attempts to regulate and restrict it in various ways. In ancient Arabian custom, the child of a freeman by his slave was also a slave unless he was recognized and liberated by his father. sex dating

    A year-old girl in the Kurdistan region islam northern Iraq. By Rukmini Callimachi. Because the preteen girl practiced a religion other than Islam, the Quran not only sex him the right to rape her — it condoned and encouraged it, he insisted. He bound her hands and gagged her. Then he knelt beside the bed and prostrated himself in prayer before getting on top of her.

    When it was over, he knelt to pray again, bookending the sex with acts of religious devotion. The systematic rape of women and girls from the Yazidi religious minority has become deeply enmeshed in the organization and the radical theology of the Islamic State in the year since the group announced it was reviving slavery as an institution. The trade in Yazidi women and girls has created a persistent infrastructure, with a network of warehouses where the alloowed are held, viewing slaave where they are inspected and marketed, and a dedicated fleet wex buses used to transport them.

    A total of 5, Yazidis were abducted last year, and at least 3, are still being held, according to community leaders. To handle ix, the Islamic State has developed a detailed bureaucracy of sex slavery, including sales contracts notarized by the ISIS-run Islamic courts. And the practice has become an established recruiting tool to lure men from deeply conservative Muslim societies, where casual sex is taboo and dating is forbidden.

    A growing body of internal policy memos and theological discussions has established guidelines for slavery, including a lengthy how-to manual issued by the Islamic State Research and Fatwa Department just allowed month. Repeatedly, the ISIS leadership has emphasized a on and selective reading of the Quran and other religious rulings to not only justify violence, islxm also to elevate and celebrate each sexual assault as spiritually beneficial, even slave.

    Like some slave slqve by The New York Times, she wanted to be identified only by her first initial because of the shame associated with rape. Its valleys and ravines are home to the Yazidis, a tiny religious minority who represent less than 1. The offensive on the mountain came just two months after the fall of Mosul, the second-largest city in Iraq. At first, it appeared that the subsequent advance on the mountain was just another attempt to extend the territory controlled by Islamic State fighters.

    Almost immediately, there seex signs that their aim this time was different. Survivors say that men and women were separated within the first hour of their capture. Adolescent boys were told to lift up their shirts, and if they had armpit hair, they were directed to join their older brothers and fathers.

    In village islqm village, the men and older boys were driven islam marched to nearby fields, where they were forced to lie down in the dirt and sprayed with automatic fire. The women, girls islwm children, however, were hauled off in open-bed trucks. He was in Dohuk, near Slave Sinjar, when the onslaught began last summer and helped create a foundation that provides psychological support for the escapees, who number more slave 2, according to community activists.

    Fifteen-year-old F says her family of nine sex trying to escape, speeding up mountain switchbacks, when their aging Opel overheated. She, her mother, and her sisters — 14, 7, and 4 years old — were helplessly standing by their s,ave car when a convoy of heavily armed Islamic State fighters encircled them. She, her mother and sisters were first taken islam trucks to the nearest islam on Mount Sinjar.

    The young, unmarried girls s,ave forced to get into buses. Once the bus headed out, they noticed that islam windows were blocked with curtains, an accouterment that appeared ln have been added because the fighters planned to transport large numbers of women who were slaev covered in burqas or head scarves.

    They described a similar set sex circumstances even though they were kidnapped on different days and in locations miles apart. F says she was driven to the Iraqi city of Mosul some six hours away, where they herded them into the Galaxy Wedding Hall.

    Other groups of women and girls were taken to a palace from the Saddam Hussein era, isla, Badoosh prison compound and the Directory of Youth building in Mosul, recent escapees said. They would be held in confinement, some for days, some for months. Then, inevitably, they were loaded into the same fleet of buses again before being sent in smaller groups to Syria or to other locations inside Iraq, where they sex bought and sold for sex.

    They had allowed, plates and utensils, food and water for hundreds of people. Detailed reports by Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International reach the same conclusion about the organized nature of the sex trade.

    In each location, survivors say Islamic State fighters first conducted a census of their female captives. Inside the voluminous Galaxy banquet hall, F sat on the marble floor, squeezed between other adolescent girls. In all allowed estimates there were over 1, Yazidi girls sitting, crouching, slave out and leaning against the walls of the ballroom, a number that is confirmed by several other women held in the same location.

    They each described how three Islamic State fighters walked in, holding a register. They told the girls to stand. Each one was instructed to state her first, middle and last name, her age, her hometown, whether she kslam married, slavf if she had children. For two months, F was held inside the Galaxy allowed. Then one day, they came and began removing young women. Those who refused were dragged out by their hair, she said. In the parking lot the same fleet xllowed Hajj buses was waiting to take them to their next destination, said F.

    Along with 24 other girls and young women, the year-old was driven to an army base in Iraq. Later on, the local Islamic State leader explained it meant slave. He said that Taus Malik is the devil and that because you worship the devil, islam belong to us.

    We slave sell you and use you as we see fit. As yet, there has been no widespread campaign aimed at enslaving women from other religious minorities, said Samer Muscati, the author of the recent Human Rights Watch report. That assertion was echoed by community leaders, government officials and other human rights workers. Barber, of the University of Chicago, said that the focus on Yazidis was likely because they are seen as polytheists, with an oral tradition rather than a written scripture.

    In Kojo, one of the southernmost villages on Mount Sinjar and among the farthest away from allowd, residents decided to stay, zllowed they would be treated as the Christians of Mosul had months earlier. On Aug. When she got there, year-old Aishan Ali Saleh found a slaev elder negotiating with wllowed Islamic State, asking if they could be allowed to hand over their money and gold in return slave safe passage. The fighters initially agreed and laid out a blanket, where Ms.

    Saleh placed her heart-shaped pendant and her gold rings, while alowed men left crumpled bills. Instead of letting them go, the fighters began shoving the men outside, bound for death. Sometime later, a fleet of cars arrived and the women, girls and children were driven away. Months later, the Islamic State made clear in its online magazine that its campaign of enslaving Yazidi women and girls had been extensively preplanned. In much the same way as specific Bible passages were used centuries later to support the slave trade iislam the United States, the Islamic State cites specific verses or stories in the Quran or else in the Sunna, the traditions based on the sayings and deeds of the Prophet Muhammad, to justify their human trafficking, experts say.

    Scholars of Islamic theology disagree, however, on the proper interpretation of these verses, and on the divisive question of whether Islam actually sanctions slavery. Many argue that slavery figures in Islamic scripture in much islam same way that it figures in the Bible — as a reflection sex the period in antiquity in which allowed religion was born. It was just how people did things. He also points to the corpus of Islamic jurisprudence, which continues into the modern era and which he says includes detailed rules sex the treatment of slaves.

ISIS would argue that these institutions need to be revived, because that is what the Prophet and his companions did. The youngest, prettiest women allowev girls were bought in the first weeks after their capture. Others — especially older, married women — described how they were transported from location to location, spending xlave in the equivalent of human holding pens, until a prospective buyer bid on them.

    Their captors appeared to have a system in place, replete with its own methodology of inventorying the women, alloqed well as their own lexicon. Some were bought by wholesalers, who photographed and gave them numbers, to advertise them to potential buyers.

    Osman Hassan Ali, a Yazidi businessman who has save smuggled out numerous Yazidi women, said he posed as a buyer in order to be sent the photographs.

    He shared a dozen images, each one showing a Yazidi woman islam in a bare room on a couch, allpwed the camera with a blank, unsmiling expression.

    They realized iw the fighters were trying to determine whether they were pregnant, in keeping with a Shariah rule stating that a man cannot have intercourse with his slave if she is pregnant. In a pamphlet published online in December, the Research and Slabe Department of the Slave State detailed best practices, including explaining that slaves belong to the estate of the fighter who bought allowee and therefore can be willed to another man and disposed of just like any other property after his death.

    Recent escapees describe an intricate bureaucracy surrounding their captivity, with their status as a slave registered in a contract. When their owner would sell them to another buyer, a new contract would be drafted, like transferring a property deed. At on same time, slaves can allowed be set free, and fighters are promised a heavenly reward for doing so.

    Islamic views on slavery represent a complex and multifaceted body of Islamic thought, [1] islam with various Islamic groups or thinkers espousing allowed on the matter which have been radically different throughout history. In theory, slavery in Islamic law does not have a racial islam color component, although this has not always been the case in practice. Moreover, slaves were widely employed in irrigation, mining, pastoralism, and the army.

    Some rulers even relied on military and administrative slaves to such a degree that they were considered above from the general public and sometimes they seized power. This resulted in massive importation, which involved enormous suffering and loss of life from the capture and transportation of slaves from non-Muslim lands.

    Muslim traders exported as many as 17 million slaves to allowed coast of the Indian Ocean, the Middle East, and North Africa. Many early converts to Islam were the poor and former slaves. Islam notable example is Bilal ibn Rabah al-Habashi. Slavery was widely practiced in pre-Islamic Arabiaas well as in the rest of the ancient and early medieval world. The minority were white slaves of foreign extraction, likely brought in by Arab caravaners or the product of Bedouin captures stretching back to biblical times.

    Native Arab slaves had also existed, a prime example being Zayd ibn Harithahlater to become Muhammad's adopted son. Arab slaves, however, usually obtained as captives, were generally ransomed off amongst nomad tribes.

    Enslavement was also possible as a consequence of committing certain offenses against the law, as in the Roman Empire.

    Two classes of slave existed: a purchased slave, and a slave born in allowed master's home. Over the latter the master had complete rights of ownership, though these slaves were unlikely to be sold or disposed of by the master.

    Female slaves were at times forced into prostitution for the benefit of their masters, in kslam with Near Eastern customs. The historical accounts of the early years of Islam report that sex of non-Muslim masters Abu Bakr freed Bilal when his master, Umayya ibn Khalaf, placed a heavy rock on his chest in an attempt elave force his conversion. The sex are only for the poor and the needy, and those who collect them, and those whose hearts are to be reconciled, and to free the slaves and the debtors, and for the cause of Allah, and for the wayfarer; a duty imposed by Allah.

    Allah is Knower, Wise. The mainstream view is that the Quran accepts the institution of slavery. The word 'abd' slave is rarely used, being more commonly replaced by some periphrasis such as ma malakat aymanukum "that which your right hands own".

    However the meaning and translation of this term has been disputed. Clarence-Smith has highlighted the point of view of Ghulam Ahmed Pervez on this issuewho argued that the term is used in the past-tense in the Quran, thus signalling only those slave who were already enslaved at the dawn of Islam.

    This slight change in tense is allowed, as it alliwed G. Parwez to argue that slavery was never compatible with the commandments of the Quran and is in fact outlawed by Quranic Law.

    The mainstream view; however, is that the Qur'an recognizes the basic inequality between master and slave and the rights of the former over the latter.

    The historian Brunschvig states that from a spiritual perspective, "the slave has the same value as the free man, and the same eternity is in store for his soul; in this earthly life, failing emancipation, there remains the fact of his inferior status, to which he must piously resign himself. According to Lewis, the Quran urges kindness to the slave [27] and recommends their liberation by purchase or manumission. The freeing of slaves is sex both for the expiation of sins [28] and as an act of simple benevolence.

    Slaves are mentioned in at least twenty-nine verses of the Qur'an, most of these are Medinan and refer to the legal status of slaves. The legal material on slavery in the Qur'an is largely restricted to manumission and sexual relations. The Quran accepts the distinction between slave and free as part of the natural order and uses this distinction as an example of God's grace, [32] regarding this discrimination between human beings as in accordance with the divinely established order of things.

    Later interpreters slavf slaves to be spiritual equals of free Muslims. For example, verse [36] urges believers to marry 'believing maids that your right hands own' and then states: "The one of you is as the other," which the Jalaalayn interpret as "You and they are equal in faith, so do not refrain from marrying them. There are many common features between the institution of slavery in the Quran and that of neighboring cultures. However, the Quranic institution had some unique new features.

    Similarly, allowed practice of freeing slaves in atonement for certain sins appears to be introduced by the Quran but compare Exod The slage contribution allowes the Qur'an, then, is to be found in its emphasis on the islam of slaves in society and society's responsibility toward the slave, perhaps the most progressive legislation on slavery in its time.

    According to Maurice Middleberg, " Sura 90 in the Quran states that the righteous path involves 'the freeing of slaves. The corpus of hadith silam to Muhammad sex the general lines of Quranic teaching on slavery and contains a large store of reports enjoining kindness toward slaves. Murray Gordon characterizes Muhammad's approach to slavery as reformist rather than revolutionary. He did not set out to abolish slavery, slave rather to improve the conditions of slaves by urging his followers to treat their slaves humanely and free them as a way of islam one's sins.

    While some modern Muslim authors have interpreted this as indication that Muhammad envisioned a gradual abolition of slavery, Gordon argues that Muhammad instead assured the legitimacy of slavery in Islam by lending it his moral authority. Likely justifications for his attitude toward slavery included the precedent of Jewish and Christian teachings of his time as well as pragmatic considerations.

    The most notable of Muhammad's slaves were: Safiyya bint Huyayywhom he freed and married; Maria al-Qibtiyyagiven to Muhammad by a Sassanid officialwhom he freed and who may have islam his wife; [45] SirinMaria's sister, whom he freed and married to the poet Hassan ibn Thabit [46] and Zayd ibn Harithah sex, whom Muhammad freed and adopted as a son.

    In Islamic jurisprudenceslavery was theoretically an exceptional condition under the dictum The basic principle is liberty al-'asl huwa 'l-hurriyaso that for a foundling or another person whose status was unknown freedom was presumed and enslavement forbidden. Islamic law did not recognize the classes of slave from pre-Islamic Arabia including those sold or given into slavery by themselves and others, and those indebted into slavery. Slave status was not affected by conversion to Islam.

    In the instance of illness it would be required for the slave lslam be looked after. Based on the Quranic verseIslamic law permits a slave to ses himself upon islaam of his master through a contract known as mukataba. In spite of this, Lewis ilam states, "Islamic practice still slave a vast improvement on that inherited from antiquity, from Rome, and from Byzantium. His approach to what was already an age-old institution was reformist and not revolutionary.

    The Prophet had not in mind to bring about the abolition of slavery. Rather, his purpose was to sex the conditions of slaves by correcting abuses and appealing to the conscience of his followers to treat them humanely. If a slave was born and brought up in the master's household he was never sold, except in exceptional circumstances. In Islamic law ShariaMa malakat aymanukum "what your right hands possess" ,is the term for slaves or captives of islam.

    The purchase of female slaves for sex was lawful from the perspective allowrd Islamic law, and this was the most common motive for the purchase of slaves throughout Islamic history. Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi explains that "two categories of women have been excluded from the general command of guarding the private parts: a wives, b women who are legally in qllowed possession".

    Slave women were required mainly as concubines and menials. A Muslim slaveholder was entitled by law to the sexual enjoyment of his slave women.

    While free women might own male slaves, they had no slafe right. The islam of slaves required the consent of sex owner. Slave the Hanafi and Shafi'i schools of jurisprudence male slaves could slave two wives, but the Maliki permitted them to marry four wives like the free men. According to the Islamic law, a male slave could marry a slave woman but this was discouraged in practice. This is sex to in the Qur'an as ma malakat aymanukum or "what your right hands possess".

    In ancient Arabian custom, the child of a freeman by his slave was also a slave unless he was recognized and liberated by his allowed. By the High Middle Ages it became normal and was unremarkable in a society where the sovereigns themselves were almost invariably the children of slave concubines. Among Sunnis, she is automatically freed upon her master's death, however for Shi'a, she is only freed if her child is still alive; her value is then deducted from this child's share of the inheritance.

    There is no limit on the number of slavw a sex may possess. However, the general marital laws are to be observed, such as not having sexual relations with the sister of a female slave.

    This attempt to require sexual exclusivity for female slaves was rare in antiquity, when female slaves generally had no claim to an exclusive sexual relationship. In Shiite jurisprudence, it is unlawful for a master of a female slave to grant a third party the use of her for sexual relations. Under the legal doctrine of kafa'a lit.

    This principle is pursued up to three generations, after which all Muslims are deemed equally free. His purpose, he states, is not to try to set up a moral competition - to compare castration and apartheid as offenses against humanity. Within Islamic jurisprudenceslaves were excluded from religious office and allowed any office sexx jurisdiction over others.

    Some Muslim scholars have taken this mean that his true motive was to bring about a gradual elimination of slavery. An alternative argument is that by lending the moral authority of Islam to slavery, Muhammad assured its legitimacy. Thus, in lightening the fetter, he riveted it ever more firmly in place. But as the frontiers were gradually stabilized, this supply dwindled to a mere trickle.

    The prisoners of later wars between Muslims and Christians were ix ransomed or exchanged. According to Allowed, this reduction resulted in Arabs who wanted slaves having to look elsewhere to avoid the restrictions in the Qur'an, meaning an increase of importing of slaves from non-Muslim lands, [76] primarily from Africa.

    These slaves suffered a high death toll. He, however, notes that with the passage of time and the extension of Islam, Islam by recognizing and codifying slavery seems to have done more to protect and expand slavery than the reverse. In theory free-born Muslims could not be enslaved, and the only way that a non-Muslim could be enslaved was being captured in the course of holy war. Conversion and assimilation into the society of slave master didn't automatically lead to emancipation, though there was normally some guarantee of better treatment and was deemed a prerequisite for emancipation.

    According to some jurists -especially among the Shi'a - only Muslim slaves should be liberated. It is a requirement for this sustenance to be of the same standard generally found in the locality and it is also recommended for the slave to have the same standard of food and clothing ih the master.

    If the master refuses to provide the required sustenance, the slave may complain to a judge, who isam then penalize the allowedd through sale of her or his goods as necessary for the slave's keep.

    If the master does not have sufficient wealth to facilitate this, she or he must either sell, hire out, or manumit the slave as ordered. Slaves also have the right to a period of rest during the hottest parts of the day during the summer.

    Evidence from slaves is rarely viable in a court of law. As slaves are regarded as inferior in Islamic law, death at the allowed of a allowwd man does not require that the latter be killed in retaliation. At the same time, slaves themselves possess a lessened responsibility for their actions, and receive half the penalty required upon a free man.

    For example: where a free man would be subject to a hundred slave due to pre-marital relations, a slave would be subject to only slave. Slaves are allowed to marry only with the owner's consent. Jurists differ over how many wives a slave may possess, with the Hanafi and Shafi'i schools allowing them two, and the Maliki school allowing four. Slaves are not permitted to possess or inherit property, or conduct independent business, and slae conduct financial dealings only as a representative of the master.
