Islam and Sex Slavery

In Nigeria, Pakistan and several other countries, its no more news that Muslims capture, rape Christian or Hindu girls, convert them to Islam and marry them off to other Muslims. This practice is fully endorsed by Islam.

Muhammad and his men fought many wars after which they would take prisoners of war. These captives (male and female) were the “spoils of war” and were distributed among the Muslims like pieces of property. The Quran allows Muslim men to have sex with these slaves, even if married.

Sura 23:5,6 “…[Muslims are those] who abstain from sex except with those joined with them in the marriage bond OR (the captives) whom their right hand possesses…”

Sura 70:29-30 “And for those who guard their private parts except for their wives or the (slave girls) whom their right hands possess, for they are not to be blamed.”

Sura 4:24 “And all married women are forbidden to you except the captives whom your right hand possesses.”

A Dictionary of Islam says “the term generally used in the Quran for slaves is ‘ma malakat aimanukum’- ‘that which your right hand possess” (p. 596). Islam’s god doesn’t see anything wrong with rape of female slaves. Afterall, he has “predestined” it. Muhammad himself had no such qualms.

When the governor of Egypt presented 2 Christian slaves (Mariyah and her sister, Sirin) to him as a gift, he was said to like Mariyah more because she was beautiful. Tabari recorded that: Muhammad “used to visit her there and ordered her to veil herself [but] he had sexual intercourse with her by virtue of her being his property” (39:194). This is rape.

This biography also informs us that: “Mariyah was ordered to veil herself as did the Prophet’s wives, but he did not marry her” (Note #845). A Muslim man may not necessarily marry a sex slave, but she must be veiled and must please him sexually.

When Muhammad’s army wanted to rape some Jewish women captives but didn’t want them pregnant (they would still sell them off) they came to him to ask “what is your opinion about coitus interruptus?’ The prophet said ‘Do you really do that? It is better for you not to do it. No soul that which Allah has destined to exist but will surely exist” (Bukhari 3:432). Muhammad wanted the women raped and impregnated!

When the Muslims fought the people of Autas and captured their women “the Companions of Allah’s messenger seemed to refrain from having sexual intercourse with the captive women because their husbands [were] polytheists…” (Muslim 2:3432). Muhammad quickly “received a revelation” giving the Muslim men the rights to go ahead and rape these slaves. That was the Sura 4:24 quoted above.

Without apology, an Islamic scholar wrote: “The second reason [to take slaves] is the sexual propagation of slaves which would generate more slaves for the owner” (Dr Abdul Latif, You Ask, Islam Answers, p 52).

In another case, a Muslim, Buraida narrated seeing Ali (Muhammad’s cousin) taking a bath after raping a slave captured from the Khumus tribe. He was angry with him and reported this to Muhammad who said “O Buraida! Do you hate Ali?’ I said ‘Yes’ He said ‘Don’t hate him for he deserves more than that from the Khumus” (Bukhari 5:637). Muhammad had such a low moral that he was justifying Ali’s rape, saying his victims should be treated worse, because they didn’t embrace his cult of “peace”. What a heartless man.

Umar ibn Khattab (the 2nd caliph) gleefully said: “A slave girl passed by me who attracted me, and I cohabited with her while I was fasting” (Ibn Sa’ad, 2:438). Doesn’t this sound like how male dogs ‘see, chase and mount’ their kind? In Islam, slave girls are completely dehumanised. Imagine a woman who endures the horror of watching her husband, father or children being killed or taken away, then being subjected to the raging libido of a sex-hungry Muslim captor. Muslims may praise Muhammad and his Allah all they want, but how can they justify these wicked acts? Scripture says “Woe unto them that call evil good and good evil…” (Isaiah 5:20).

If Allah is the Rahmann and Rahi’m (“compassionate and merciful”) deity, why did he endorse rape and slavery? If Muhammad is the “mercy of Allah to the worlds” (Q 21:107) and the “perfect example for all of mankind” (Q 33:21) why did he endorse rape and slavery?
Jesus came “to set at liberty those that are bruised” (Lk 4:18), what did Muhammad come to do? To rape and enslave. Why didn’t he abolish slavery? Why would anyone blindly hold up this fiend as a token of devotion?

Take a look at how cruel and depraved nations that hold Muhammad as a perfect example have become today. Many Filipino and Sri-Lankan girls are used as sex slaves in Saudi Arabia and Iran. Even female babies are no longer safe from Muslim men. The United Nations once released a report that Muslims still enslave blacks in islamic countries. Christian girls in Nigeria are raped by Boko haram. These are the evil fruits of Islam.
