5707: The difference between slaves and prostitutes


I’ve heard that it is allowed for men to have intercourse with their slaves. Does that stand for women too, & if men can have intercourse with their slaves (the ones they have bought) then why is it so much ill thought of the prostitutes…they too are, kind of bought at others will, for shorter time period perhaps. Can you make all this clear & why is it so that Islam did not stop slavery….they are humans as well, & are against their will kept in captivity & against their will may be forced into intercourse?

Praise be to Allaah.

Slavery in Islam was originally prescribed because of Kufr. If there is jihaad between the Muslims and the kuffaar, and a number of kuffaar are taken prisoner, the commander is given the choice of sharing them out, doing them a favour (by releasing them) or paying their ransom. If they are shared out as part of the booty, they become slaves, subject to the laws governing products which may be sold. But at the same time, Islam urges the freeing of slaves and makes doing so an act of expiation for numerous sins. In principle, slavery is not something that is desirable; what is encouraged in Islam is the freeing of slaves. If a woman is enslaved according to sharee’ah, it is permissible for her master to have intercourse with her. This is unlike prostitution or zinaa, which Islam has forbidden as a precaution against mixing lineages and other reasons for which it is forbidden. There is no comparison between the two, because if a slave woman becomes pregnant, the child belongs to the master and she becomes free when he dies, because she has become the mother of the master’s child (umm walad), and is subject to the same rulings as a wife. And Allaah knows best.

    May Allah forgive our misogynist clerics.
    A female slave is as lawful as free woman for Moslems thru “Islamic marriage”, not for a *fornication*.

    Let the intelligent reader of Qur’an Q.4, v.24 ask the hardcore misogynists whether the word “Halal” in the context of verse is about a free sex (fornication, orgy, one night stand) with free woman and female slave, or actually about a valid Islamic marriage?

    Also let the intelligent reader of Qur’an Q.5, v.5 ask the hardcore misogynists whether the word “Halal” in the context of verse is about a free sex (fornication, orgy, one night stand) with the woman of the People of Scriptures, or actually about a valid Islamic marriage?

    Moreover, Qur’an Q.24, v.32 makes totally impossible for the Moslem master to try to fornicate with his female slaves since Qur’an commands us Moslems to put the female slaves into a marriage, not into a free sex relationship.

    Additionally, if a bondwoman were a cheap sexual slave of her master, Qur’an Q.24, v.28 wouldn’t have forbidden her to try to sneak, approach, or enter her master’s bedroom at three private moments. On the contrary, she must have been in his bedroom at those moments for serving his biological urge, in a filthy activity of fornication (according to misogynist bias).
