Capture Married Women, Rape Them, and Then Keep Them as Sex Slaves!

June 16, 2011

UPDATE 10/13/2014: With the so-called Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) group being in the news, there has been lots of talk about sex slaves (referred in the Qur’an as “right hand possessions”). I have updated this post for those that are wondering if this has any basis in any of the versions of Islam (it does).

UPDATE 12/22/2013: Because of sites like this one, Islam-Q&A has been scrubbing their site of fatwas discussion unseemly and embarrassing topics such as sex slaves and child marriage. Some of it is still there though.

Yes, the Qur’an endorses sex slavery! The translation of the Qur’an into English sanitizes it by calling them “right hand possessions”. However, this is really nothing other than a sex slave. For those that think no Muslim believes this, then read this fatwa and this one.

Islam-QA says on this topic (first link):

With regard to the women, they become slaves and “those whom one’s right hand possesses” (described as a “right hand servant” in the question). Male children also become slaves. The ruler shares out these slaves among the mujaahideen.

Shaykh al-Shanqeeti (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: The reason why a person may be taken as a slave is his being a kaafir and waging war against Allaah and His Messenger. If Allaah enables the Muslims who are striving and sacrificing their lives and their wealth and all that Allaah has given them to make the word of Allaah supreme over the kaafirs, then He allows them to enslave the kuffaar when they capture them, unless the ruler chooses to free them or to ransom them, if that serves the interests of the Muslims.

And as for raping the “right hand possessions”. Take a look at this fatwa (read it all here):

It is not permissible for a man to have intercourse with anyone except his wife or his female slave (concubine). A wife becomes permissible after shar’i marriage and a concubine becomes permissible to the man who owns her. She may originally be a prisoner of war, and a Muslim may obtain a concubine from the ruler or commander if he took part in fighting in jihad, or if he buys her from her owner. She becomes permissible for him by virtue of his ownership after it is established that she is not pregnant by waiting for one menstrual cycle, or until she has given birth if she is pregnant. 

It is a myth that Islam ended slavery once and for all and many believe that it will come back to these days. Remember that unlike other societies who had sex slaves, this is considered to be “perfect divine guidance” in Islam. So it can not ever be questioned.

Sahih Muslim, Book 008, Number 3432:Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah her pleased with him) reported that at the Battle of Hanain Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) sent an army to Autas and encountered the enemy and fought with them. Having overcome them and taken them captives, the Companions of Allah’s Messenger (may peace te upon him) seemed to refrain from having intercourse with captive women because of their husbands being polytheists. Then Allah, Most High, sent down regarding that:” And women already married, except those whom your right hands possess (iv. 24)” (i. e. they were lawful for them when their ‘Idda period came to an end).

Sahih Muslim, Book 008, Number 3433: Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported that Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) sent a small army. The rest of the hadith is the same except this that he said: Except what your right hands possessout of them are lawful for you; and he did not mention” when their ‘idda period comes to an end”. This hadith has been reported on the authority of AbuSa’id (al-Khudri) (Allah be pleased with him) through another chain of transmitters and the words are: They took captives (women) on the day of Autas who had their husbands. They were afraid (to have sexual intercourse with them) when this verse was revealed:” And women already married except those whom you right hands posses” (iv. 24)

* Upon conquering a tribe or a people, Muslims reserve the right to enslave any civilians captured.

* Part of having a female slave is that you have unlimited access to her sexually. You are allowed to have an unlimited number of female sex slaves as well.

* A female sex slave has no right to decide whether or not she will be a slave, much less whether or not she wants to have sex with her captor. These women were not entering into slavery happily either. Their captors had in many cases just killed their husbands, fathers, brothers, sons, cousins, neighbors, and the like. They had no choice but to become slaves and no choice but to sexually serve their masters. Resisting was pointless, as it would only amount to a good beating. These women were made to have sex against their will, sometimes by force, and whether they passively or aggressively resisted the sex, it was rape. This point should be clear – sex against your will is rape. Muslims have been capturing and raping women for centuries and it is all approved in the Quran, by Allah.

* You would think that Allah would be more humane than that, but apparently not.

* In the hadiths above, these women were captured along with their husbands, alive. The Muslims felt awkward in raping them while their husbands were present, a strange paradox of morality, and so they hesitated. As usual, Allah decides to send down some revelation to Muhammad when the question of having sex with them arises and tells him that it is permissible for them to rape these married women because they are slaves. So they did.

* Notice how quickly they are worried about sex? They just defeated these people in a war and they can’t wait to dig in and start raping the women. In fact, many Muslims fought for this very reason – the promise of women and other types of property.

* Can you imagine being invaded by a foreign people, conquered, made to change your religion, your property being seized, and to boot your wife is dragged off to be the sex slave of one of the conquerors – all as you watch on helplessly? These were heart wrenching events indeed. And if you have children, they will be enslaved as well. In some cases they are whisked away to a foreign land, never to be seen again. All of this because a group of people (Muslims) don’t like what you may or may not believe about God – a subject that no one knows anything about for certain. This then becomes their justification to conquer, rape, and plunder any people they can overpower. If this isn’t evil, I don’t know what is.

    This is the first time I have seen your web site. Thank you for your hard work. Keep telling the truth and be strong and courageous. I wish you the best of luck. God bless

    There are some Islamic fatwa sites on the net and I was looking up the slavery position in view of the recent discussions. First and foremost, your remark about this being evil is way out of line, you must be a racist islamophobe., possibly even a Jewish banker who has just finished his fresh matzos made with the blood of Palestinian children. The site I was looking at admits that the slavery justified in the koran may be difficult to understand for the very simple reason that human understanding is limited, more so if you are a kaffir but Allah knows all and he said its OK.

    You also have the sex part all wrong, let me lift the cloud of ignorance from your eyes, I quote verbatim:

    “Islam ensured that a slave girl’s duties were not restricted to domestic chores but also gave her owner permission to copulate with her. This CONCESSION created an atmosphere of love and harmony between the slave and her master.”

    Yes indeed, these are the words of a learned sheik so what else can you expect from the sheep that follow him.

  3. This promises to be a most entertaining site. I will check back often.

    Are you familiar with askimam.org? It’s not unlike the Islam Q&A site in that some Deobandi freak in South Africa gets inquiries from people and he and his staff give them religious rulings. This site made me realize that Islam is a religion of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder with its emphasis on multiple prayer meetings daily, performing rituals in the exact way prescribed so they will “count,” doing things to receive X number of blessings from Allah – the list of crazy goes on and on.

  4. The Secrets of the Koran by Don Richardson makes note of this subject as well, including the “right hand possesions” part. I just came across your blog yesterday and I love it; clear and to the point. Keep up the good work.

    Hi, I am en ex-muslim lives in Sri Lanka. I appreciate your efforts to bring the truths of Islam to the world. Most of the muslims hide these facts and preach the Islam as religion of peace, but I say to you that is not truth. Islam possess all kind of evils in it and Religious people never willing to change or delete those stuffs or reform the religion. So, beware of those people preach for Islam to convert. This blog is easy to read, short and crispy with all references to the Quran and Hadiths. Keep up the good work.

      You my Brother, will come back to Islam inshaAllah when you realize that Islam is the true light of the world. You have been misled if you can not see that. I’ve seen true evil and Islam is the exact opposite. May you find your way back before it is too late.

      • @ 1muslimummah

        well, the thing that is getting in the way of me seeing Islam as the “light of the world” is Islam itself. If only I could make myself believe in a flat earth, goats in space, divinely sanctioned sex slaves, and that sex with little girls is permissible then I would gladly come back

    Tonestaple, the wisdom about the concession re copulation does indeed come from that site. You cannot argue with a Muslim, the only thing you can do is to throw their idiocy in their faces in the hope that one day it might hit the target. I am still waiting to hear from Ryad if it is permitted for women to ride their camels to town AS IT WAS IN THE DAYS OF THE PROPHET. Don’t bother arguing about the driving ban for woman.

  7. “Might is Right”. Muhammad did this texture Documentation, in the Quran, by Allah. “justification to conquer, rape, and plunder any people they can overpower. If this isn’t evil, I don’t know what is.” This thing happened at all wars. still rapes or common in all country’s. even in all religious. Pope or Baba of Hindu. committed rapes still.

    Before Blaming Muslim should check worldly people what doing….That days there is no Human rights to slaves(who are defeated in war). Much more brutal thing is. USA Wight people chained Black man like animal. Wight man enjoyed Black women.

    What Bible said, from the Beginning of the Bible God said war war war war endless. old testament end with wars. after that pope Bible, what he said war war by the name of god. this all wars start with Religion so no end even today.

    The Ridiculous, criticism. any change occurred in this people religion people no because they live on contribution, they ate bloodshed food. they fight for religion.

    It seems Mohammed’s companions have a little bit of moral values compared to Mohammed and his god. They were hesitating about raping the captured women but this gentleman is cruel enough to create a message in the name of god to rape them. What merciful and loving god ever permits to rape his own creation?
