    Slavery of the Bible is racist, it has two different systems: for Jewish slaves and Gentile slaves.
    In Islam, there’s no racism.
    In Islam, the slaves have to marry, so there’s no concubinage or harem (Q.24, v.32).

    Slave and free Moslems are typical of family guys.
    Malik, Muwatta, Book 54, Hadith 54.15.39.
    From Abu Hurayra that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “Travelling is a portion of the torment. It denies you your sleep, food, and drink. When you have accomplished your purpose, you should hurry back to your family.”

    Q.24, v.32. And marry the single among ye, and the righteous among your male slaves, and female slaves. If they should be poor, Allah will enrich them from His bounty, and Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.

    King James Bible
    And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.

    “madmanna says: ..In thee shall all nations be blessed.”

    Do you believe in universal salvation and purgatory? Are you a Reformed or Catholic?

    I am sure that makes the slave happy when he knows that his master is not a racist.

    Certainly, Non-Hebrew slaves have to be circumcised by Jewish slavemasters as example of Abraham household in Gen 17:23.
    In Rabbinical writings (Yoreh De’ah, Chapter 10a), the Rabbis give practical reason why slaves in Jewish household have to be circumcised: Because it is not permitted for Jews to drink the wine or eat the foods that had been touched by an uncircumcised Gentile, so they circumcise Gentile slaves.

    In Leviticus 25:45-45 Non-Hebrew slaves are owned permanently, and be inherited to the owner’s children, thus they are abused as property.

    Non-Hebrew slaves (Gentile slaves) could be captured in war and purchased against their will.
    As a prohibition of harsh treatments emphatically did not extend to Gentile slaves, they could be treated harshly, by beating, even getting disfigured to a state of dying, so long as they didn’t die immediately,

    Yoreh De’ah, Chapter 10a
    “It is forbidden to eat bread (made from any of the five species of grain: wheat, barley, oats, rye, and spelt) that was baked by a non-Jew for his own consumption, unless comparable Jewish bread is not available or a Jew was involved in the baking or in making or maintaining the fire.”
    “It is forbidden to eat food that was cooked intentionally by a non-Jew if the food is of a type that is not usually eaten raw and is sometimes served at state dinners, unless a Jew contributed to the cooking or the fire.”
    “It is forbidden to drink common types of intoxicating beverages, except for those made from grain or honey, if they were made by a non-Jew and are being drunk at a place where people meet to drink”
    “It is forbidden to drink wine (made from grapes; see 123:8) that was touched by a non-Jew.”
