Can Muslim Men Rape their Slave Girls?

By
Bassam Zawadi

 

 

There happens to be a misconception that since Muslims are allowed to have sexual intercourse with their slave girls, that means that they have a right to rape them or use them for sex trade. This is absurd. 

To say that a Muslim man has a right to rape his slave girl is like saying that a man has a right to rape his wife. Which is not true.  http://www.answering-christianity.com/karim/no_marital_rape.htm

Rape in Islam is completely forbidden. See (Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 38, Number 4366) and http://www.islamonline.net/servlet/Satellite?pagename=IslamOnline-English-Ask_Scholar/FatwaE/FatwaE&cid=1125407868541

 

Muslim men are not allowed to force their girls into prostitution. Read the follow hadith........

Sahih Muslim

 

Book 043, Number 7180:

Jabir reported that 'Abdullah b. Ubayy b. Salul used to say to his slave-girl: Go and fetch something for us by committing prostitution. It was in this connection that Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, revealed this verse:" And compel not your slave-girls to prostitution when they desire to keep chaste in order to seek the frail goods of this world's life, and whoever compels them, then surely after their compulsion Allah is Forgiving, Merciful" (xxiv. 33).

Book 043, Number 7181:

Jabir reported that 'Abdullah b. Ubayy b. Salul had two slave-girls; one was called Musaika and the other one was called Umaima and he compelled them to prostitution (for which'Abdullah b. Ubayy b. Salul compelled them). They made a complaint about this to Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) and it was upon this that this verse was revealed:" And compel not your slave-girls to prostitute" up to the words:" Allah is Forgiving, Merciful."

 

Sunan Abu Dawud

Book 006, Hadith Number 2304.

Narated By Jabir ibn Abdullah : Musaykah, a slave-girl of some Ansari, came and said: My master forces me to commit fornication. Thereupon the following verse was revealed: "But force not your maids to prostitution (when they desire chastity)."
