Saudi Arabia: Prominent Religious Leader Calls For Slavery To Be Legalized Once Again Because ‘Slavery Is A Part Of Islam’


You can rape and torture slaves, and even kill as many Jews and Christians as your pious heart desires, but whatever you do please avoid flying kites, hurting frogs or looking at the letter X. And please, for the sake of the children, avoid samosas, tomatoes and Chevrolets

By Jerrold L. Sobel, American Thinker – “Slavery is explicitly permitted in the Koran.  Recently Sheikh Saleh Al-Fawzan, a prominent Saudi religious leader called for slavery to be re-legalized throughout the kingdom.  According to the Sheik, a member of the Senior Council of Clerics:  ‘Slavery is a part of Islam.  Slavery is part of jihad, and jihad will remain as long there is Islam.’

In thought and deed this way of thinking is common throughout the Islamic world.  Abu Ishaq al-Huwanini, an Egyptian Cleric proudly proclaims he wishes to apply the ancient Shar’i code of enslaving populations which refuse to pay the jizia (poll tax) or converting to Islam when defeated at the hands of a Muslim nation.  He states:  ‘When I want a sex slave, I go to the market and pick whichever female I desire and buy her’

Why such dastardly remarks and proof of such practices are discounted by those so quick to chastise Israel is perplexing to say the least.  A segment of the Jewish population, particularly on campuses throughout the world, denounces Israel as an apartheid state while ignoring the very real practice of Islamic slavery and the endemic degradation of women which exists to this very day; most egregiously throughout Africa and the Middle East.

Perhaps, unfortunate to say, slavery is almost discounted in the Arab Middle East, and recognition of it in today’s politically correct world is muted at best.  But one would think the widespread Muslim enslavement of native black people throughout Africa would be a cause célèbre amongst the self-proclaimed intelligentsia.  It simply isn’t.

How many people have heard the story of Moulkheir Mint Yarba?  Very few if any I assume.  According to a CNN story written by John D. Sutter, Moulkheir Mint Yarba is a woman born into slavery in the West African, Islamic nation of Mauritania.  A country in which modern slavery is more prevalent than anywhere else in the world.

One day after returning to her wretched dwelling from tending her master’s goats she was devastated to find her infant daughter left outside in the searing desert heat to die.  This was done as punishment by her master; a man who had fathered the infant subsequent to raping this woman.  Why such a despicable act?  He told her she would work faster without the child on her back.  What recourse did she have?  The same as the other 10%-20% of slaves that live in Mauritania, none.

Just to the South of Mauritania is another West African nation, Senegal.  Its population is 9.1 million, 80% of whom are Muslims.  Goree Island, lies less than 2 miles off the coast of Senegal, and was one of West Africa’s largest slave trading outposts during the Atlantic Slave Trade.  While slaves no longer flow in and out of the slave houses of Gorée Island, slavery continues to riddle the country.  Senegal is a source, transit, and destination country for modern slaves, according to the U.N. Human Rights Council.

Authorities in Nigeria say as many as 40,000 girls and women have been trafficked to nearby West African countries to serve as sex workers.  Simon Egede an investigator from Nigeria’s National Agency for Prohibition of Traffic in Persons found slave camps full of Nigerian women and girls in Mali, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Niger, Libya, and Morocco.  He estimates that there are between 20,000 and 40,000 victims.  What do all these nations have in common?  Political correctness aside, the least common denominator denotes an average of better than 75% of their collective population is Islamic.  These are indisputable facts which are documented and well known to the U.N., the E.U., and in governmental agencies throughout the world.  So once again, where is the outcry on American campuses by professors and students so quick to castigate Israel?  And what has the world body done so far about it?

On November 8, 2012 the U.N. elected genocidal, misogynistic and tyrannical Sudan to its 54-member Economic and Social Council.  Laughingly, this U.N. body regulates human rights groups, oversees U.N. committees on women’s rights, and crafts resolutions from Internet freedom to female genital mutilation.  It gets crazier.

The following month, December 12, the U.N.’s top human rights body marked Human Rights Day by electing Mauritania’s Ambassador as one of 4 Vice Presidents to the Human Rights Council.  At the same time another Vice President elected was the representative from the Maldives, a predominantly Islamic Island in the Indian Ocean just off the east coast of Africa.

In this wonderful country, non-Muslim foreign workers may only practice their faith in private.  Speech deemed ‘contrary to the tenets of Islam’ is restricted; women are flogged for extramarital sex, and homosexual activity is a crime punishable with banishment and flogging.

Dismissing or ignoring the crimes and inhumanities committed by the aforementioned nations, it’s become acceptable for leftist groups on and off campus to demonize, delegitimize, and judge Israel with a double standard, while issuing a free pass to Islamic deprivations such as honor killings, misogyny, slavery, as well as other heinous practices.  Quick to drown out and block appearances by pro-Israeli speakers on campus, their silence is deafening to the crimes committed in the Muslim world.  We’ve all heard of the ‘Apartheid week’ libel spewed against Israel every March.  Has anyone heard of an equivalent ‘anti Slavery week?’  I haven’t.

It is biased behavior is par for the course at the U.N. and almost understandable.  It’s a lot easier for them and the nations which they’re comprised of to use Israel as a punching bag rather than focus their attention on the many Muslim nations where barbaric atrocities are continuously committed and are just a part of daily life.

What’s not understandable is the apathy and blindness self-righteous academia gives to these uncivilized practices which should be anathema to the ideals they so sanctimoniously claim to stand for.” Source – American Thinker.

    Reblogged this on oogenhand and commented:
    Nevertheless, abolition of slavery makes war more bloody, and could even lead to the Holocaust. However, it is who,whom? I declare that children of Dutch fathers and Saudi mothers count as Dutch. Saud-Arabia and Iran destroy each other in Syria. Hell is eternal.

    Since when did Islam give a damn whether something is legal or not? They are muslims, and they reserve the right to break any and all laws including their own. They are lawless.

    Really informative article, well done, but I don’t get why you keep bringing Israel into it. The US funds Israel and always backs them, it’s natural for activists and protesters to protest the actions of their own country with which they do not agree.
    I hope your article helps bring more awareness of the slave trade’s links with some Islamic cultures, as well as common and organised crime.
    Protesting one doesn’t have to mean ignoring the other.

      The US funds Israel with 2-3 billion dollars 75% of which Israel MUST spend in the USA!

      The USA also funds: Egypt, Palestinians, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and many more Muslim countries.
      Moreover tens of thousands of American military have died while fighting to save Muslims from each other BUT not a single American has died fighting FOR Israel

      The writer is comparing the Duplicity, Hypocrisy, Ill-logic and Mendacity of those who accuse Israel of being racist and Apartheid when any decent human being with TWO braincells of logic can see that ONLY in Israel can Muslims, Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Bahais, Homosexuals and others can live in Peace and Harmony while every single Muslim country surrounding her suffers from utter Ignorance, Hate, Misogyny, Discrimination, Racism & Self Destruction

      Muhammadan Islam is the antithesis of ALL known human freedoms and dignity

      Muhammadan Islam thrives only on ignorant or very stupid people

    LOL! What rubbish, this guy is a good story teller. He doesn’t want to speak about the children being kidnapped and tortured in Israel under false pretense, he doesn’t talk about the Palestinians being enslaved in their own land. Now that is a fact! what he is talking about can make a good story.

    olatunde idowu, “Did Prophet of Islam says it is part of jihad to free a slave yes whoever wants a slave now just wants to satisfy its male ego it is a sin”

    jacinda, “that is the truth. Look at Bilal one of the first Muslims and the prophet freed him. What is wrong with people and a sex slave for real. Islam pushes having sex with your spouse only.”

    As you can see here, the Qur’an justifies slavery, and often mentions slaves. Here are some relevant verses:

    Qur’an Sura 33:50, “Prophet, We have made lawful to you the wives to whom you have granted dowries and the slave girls whom [Allah] has given you as booty.”

    This verse clearly shows that Muslims believe that taking slaves in war was a God-given right. These slaves were considered ‘booty’ or the spoils of war. As the saying goes: to the victors go the spoils.

    Qur’an Sura, 23:5, “… except with their wives and slave girls, for these are lawful to them…”

    The passage’s context here (not quoted in full) details how Muslim males are allowed to have sexual relations with their wives and slave girls. Implicit in this is that Muslim males had slave-concubines. 70:30 is basically a repeat of 23:5.

    Ibn Sa’d’s “Tabaqat”, gives a clear description of Muhammad having “relations” with at least one of his slave girls. Muhammad had sexual relations with Mariyah, his Coptic slave. Mariyah and her sister, Sirin were slaves given as gifts to Muhammad. Muhammad gave Sirin to Hasan Thabit, the poet. Ibn Sa’d says that Muhammad “liked Mariyah, who was of white complexion, with curly hair and pretty.” [Taken from Ibn Sa’d’s “Kitab al-Tabaqat al-Kabir” (Book of the Major Classes), p151].

    Ibn Sa’d also writes that Mariyah bore Muhammad a son named Ibrahim. He died 18 months later. Sa’d writes: “If he had lived, no maternal uncle of his would have remained in bondage”, p164. This shows that there were other Coptic slaves owned by the Muslims.

    The Qur’an also instructs Muslims NOT to force their female slaves into prostitution (24:34), and even allows Muslims to marry slaves if they so desire (4:24), and to free them at times as a penalty for crime or sin (4:92, 5:89, 58:3) and even allows slaves to buy their liberty, if they meet certain of their master’s conditions (24:33). [90:10 ‘freeing of a bondsman’ refers to Muslims ransoming other Muslims who were slaves of non-Muslims.]

    While I think it’s nice to allow a slave to obtain his freedom, (at his master’s discretion) it is tragic that Islam allows them to be enslaved in the first place. That’s like robbing a bank and giving some of the money back to the bank, and thinking you did the right thing!

    The above verses show that taking slaves was ordained by Allah, and that it was permissible for Muslim males to have sex with their female slaves. It also shows that slaves were a valuable commodity to the Muslims, otherwise, Allah would not have imposed the penalty of freeing a slave to make up for a crime.

    This is the reason why I just finished a video on White Slavery as I have the intuition that slavery could come back and the French did everything to stop it. In fact, this is the main reason why the French fought Algeria and colonized or rather “founded” Algeria. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQImoTy8m9E
