Quran Morality and Moral Code, Laws & QA / Re: beating

Quran vs Bible on beating women :

Bible allowing to beat and kill a disobedient child!

It's ironic how Christians bring up, Muslims men can beat their wives, when in reality they dismiss their very own bible which states, a father is allowed to beat and kill his disobedient child.

Do not withhold discipline from a child; although you strike him with a rod, he will not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell. (proverbs 23:13-14)

👉🏼Bible says kill women not only beat them😨😳

○Kill Women Who Are Not Virgins On Their Wedding Night: (Deuteronomy 22:20-21)

○Kill Men, Women, and Children: (Ezekiel 9:5-7)

○Kill Old Men and Young Women: (Jeremiah 51:20-26)

👉🏼The Concept of Beating women in the Bible:

"Young people take pride in their strength, but the gray hairs of wisdom are even more beautiful. A severe beating can knock all of the evil out of you! (From the Contemporary English Version (CEV) Bible, Proverbs 20:29-30)"

"Hatred stirs up trouble; love overlooks the wrongs that others do. If you have good sense, it will show when you speak. But if you are stupid, you will be beaten with a stick. If you have good sense, you will learn all you can, but foolish talk will soon destroy you. (From the Contemporary English Version (CEV) Bible, Proverbs 10:12-14)"

"A curse you don’t deserve will take wings and fly away like a sparrow or a swallow. Horses and donkeys must be beaten and bridled— and so must fools. Don’t make a fool of yourself by answering a fool. (From the Contemporary English Version (CEV) Bible, Proverbs 26:2-4)"

Beating here is open for anyone who is deemed to have evil in them, and/or is acting stupid and is a fool. The Bible doesn't object to the concepts of beating and disciplining of any individual who is in the wrong, and who is deemed to be deserving to it

▪︎▪︎▪︎
👉🏼Parable about Beating in Bible:

"Athletes work hard to win a crown that cannot last, but we do it for a crown that will last forever. I don’t run without a goal. And I don’t box by beating my fists in the air. I keep my body under control and make it my slave, so I won’t lose out after telling the good news to others.

▪︎ (From the Contemporary English Version (CEV) Bible, 1 Corinthians 9:25-27)"

"If that happens, the master will come on a day and at a time when the servant least expects him. That servant will then be punished and thrown out with the servants who cannot be trusted. If servants are not ready or willing to do what their master wants them to do, they will be beaten hard. But servants who don’t know what their master wants them to do will not be beaten so hard for doing wrong. If God has been generous with you, he will expect you to serve him well. But if he has been more than generous, he will expect you to serve him even better.

▪︎ (From the Contemporary English Version (CEV) Bible, Luke 12:46-48)"

👉🏼Bible that put women under the authority and judgment of men and gives women punishments:

Man is clearly the ruler and the lord of the woman:Genesis 3:16 "To the woman he said, "I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing; with pain you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.""

▪︎1 Corinthians 11:6-7

6 If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off; and if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut or shaved off, she should cover her head.

7 A man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man."

👉🏼The man is allowed to cut the woman's hands if she defends her husband in the wrong way:

▪︎Deuteronomy 25:11-12 "And in case men struggle together (in a fight) with one another, and the wife of the one has come near to deliver her husband out of the striking one (to save her husband), and she has thrust out her hand and grabbed hold of his private (the other man's groin), she must then get both her hands cut off, and the eyes of the men must feel no sorrow."

The daughter would get burnt alive with fire:

▪︎Leviticus 21:9 "And the daughter of any priest, if she profane herself by playing the [harlot], she profaneth her father: she shall be burnt with fire."

There are many many other verses that I could dig up and provide, but these should be sufficient enough to prove that men have full authority over women in the Bible.

As harsh as it may seem this is the reality of the Bible. The God of the Bible sanctions beating and killing one's own child, purely for disobeying him

▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎
👉🏼Remember 100 women are killed annually today in developed countries like France and the US as official statestics reveal

▪︎See all the statistics here on our previous post

👉🏼Now Islamically speaking

Now coming to the idea of Islam allowing wife beating. This is not true. Islam does not allow wife beating, rather in Islam a husband must love and look after his wife and children.

Narrated Mu'awiyah al-Qushayri: "I went to the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) and asked him: What do you say (command) about our wives? He replied: Give them food what you have for yourself, and clothe them by which you clothe yourself, and 👉🏼do not beat them, and do not revile them.
▪︎(Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 11, Marriage (Kitab Al-Nikah), Number 2139)"

Narrated Mu'awiyah ibn Haydah: "I said: Apostle of Allah, how should we approach our wives and how should we leave them? He replied: Approach your tilth when or how you will, give her (your wife) food when you take food, clothe when you clothe yourself, do not revile her face, 👉🏼and do not beat her.
▪︎(Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 11, Marriage (Kitab Al-Nikah), Number 2138)"

👉🏼So act kindly towards women.

(Translation of Sahih Muslim, The Book of Marriage (Kitab Al-Nikah), Book 008, Number 3468)"

Always remember:

👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼and do not beat them, and do not revile them.
▪︎(Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 11, Marriage (Kitab Al-Nikah), Number 2139

Aisha reported that Allah's Messenger, may Allah bless him, never beat anyone with his hand, neither a woman nor a servant, but only, in the case when he had been fighting in the cause of Allah …” (Sahih Muslim, Hadith 4296)

Tafsir Ibn Kathir, chapter 68:

Imam Ahmad recorded that `A’ishah said, “The Messenger of Allah never struck a servant of his with his hand, nor did he ever hit a woman. He never hit anything with his hand, except for when he was fighting Jihad in the cause of Allah

Allah Subhanahu wa taala describes Prophet Muhammed Peace be upon him in the Quran as the best of character.

Narrated Mu'awiyah al-Qushayri: "I went to the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) and asked him: What do you say (command) about our wives? He replied: Give them food what you have for yourself, and clothe them by which you clothe yourself, and 👉🏼do not beat them, and do not revile them. (Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 11, Marriage (Kitab Al-Nikah), Number 2139)"

Stop it "Do not Beat Your Wife" (Noble Quran & Prophet of Islam-Peace be upon him)

👉🏼"...Do not retain them (i.e., your wives) to harm them...(The Noble Quran, 2:231)"

🗣Now Correct Context and translation of Quran 4:34 based upon above verses and true meaning of Word "Adriboo (root: daraba): to separate, to part, or to strike"

💐👉🏼This religion that forbids to harm even a cat how could it say beat a woman

Beat (daraba ) in Arabic language also means to separate and ignore someone too

As in Lisan Al Arab dictionary

(4:34) [...]as for those women whose animosity or ill-will you have reason to fear, then leave them alone in bed, and then separate; and if thereupon they pay you heed, do not seek a way against them.

Adriboo (root: daraba): to separate, to part, or to strike.

In the context of the above verse the most appropriate meaning for nushuz is 'marital discord' (ill-will, animosity etc), and for adriboo is 'to separate' or 'to part'.

"O ye who believe! When ye go abroad (darabtum) In the cause of Allah, Investigate carefully, And say not to anyone Who offers you a salutation: 'Thou art none of a Believer!' Coveting the perishable good Of this life: with Allah Are profits and spoils abundant. Even thus were ye yourselves Before, till Allah conferred On you His favours: therefore Carefully investigate. For Allah is well aware Of all that ye do. (The Noble Quran, 4:94)"

So "daraba" literally means "beat", or "go abroad", or "give" but not in the sense to give something by hand, but rather to give or provide an example.

Important Note: Notice how Allah Almighty in Noble Chapter (Surah) 4 He used "daraba (4:34" and "darabtum (4:94)", which are both derived from the same root. He used both words in the same Chapter, which tells me that "daraba" in Noble Verse 4:34 means to desert or leave but not beat, since that's what its derived word meant in Noble Verse 4:94.

"...Do not retain them (i.e., your wives) to harm them...(The Noble Quran, 2:231

GENERAL TOPICS | BOARD ANNOUNCEMENTS / Jesus ok polygamy in Matthew 19
« Last post by QuranSearchCom on December 19, 2019, 07:20:45 AM »
As'salamu Alaikum Everyone,

This is the one and only verse Christians use to prohibit polygamy:

Matthew 19
9. I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, and marries another woman a similar commits adultery.


Notice "another woman" got crossed.  This is because the word "woman" is not there in the Greek, and the word for "another" also means similar.


If you read www.answering-christianity.com/ntpoly.htm, you'll see that polygamy is clearly allowed in the OT and NT.  It was also commanded in the OT in some cases.  And Jesus never forbade it at all.  He only forbade unjust divorce.  He is basically saying this:


If you divorce your wife, except if she cheats on you, and marry a SIMILAR, then you'll commit adultery.


Yes, this is because the new "wife" is still married to her husband just like your "former wife" is still married to you.

I will update the article with ample proofs from Greek, insha'Allah.

Take care,
Osama Abdallah

As'salamu Alaikum Everyone,

As I continue building my article of about Jesus, and how the New Testament called him literally and verbatim a " fat drunk" "gluttonous, and a winebibber" (Matthew 11:19), I made the following point, from among others, about polygamy allowed in the NT:


1-  Each believer will get 100 times the wives in Heaven.  But Jesus never promised husbands for each wife.


You can visit:
www.answering-christianity.com/jesus_problematic_hyperboles.htm

Too much confused and drunk language in the NT.  Pork was never allowed.  Polygamy was never forbidden.  Rich people are not evil, and many other examples.

GENERAL TOPICS | BOARD ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ahmed in the Bible: Book of Habakkuk
« Last post by Anonymous1 on December 17, 2019, 06:50:22 PM »
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Merciful,

Over time, the Bible has been changed. One factor of this change is not preserving the original language. Another main one is the hiding of the prophecies of Prophet Muhammad (may peace be upon him). For this post, I will be discussing a combination of both of these.

Ar-Ridha (ra) was known for his debates with scholars of religions other than Islam. In his debate with a Jewish High Rabbi, he gives proof from Chapter 3, Verse 3 of the Book of Habakkuk. He states, "He [Habakkuk] said, and your Book says it: ‘Allah, the Most High, brought the law/statement from Mount Faran (Paran); the earth was full of the glorification of Ahmed and his community." However, when you look at the translation of the verse in most versions, such as the NIV Bible, you find a very different translation.

NIV Bible Verse:
"God came from Teman, the Holy One from Mount Paran. His glory covered the heavens and his praise filled the earth" (Habakkuk 3:3).

Note: Teman/Tema and Mount Paran are both linked to Mecca (See http://answering-christianity.com/paran.htm and http://www.answering-christianity.com/isaiah_vision1.htm).

It was some similarities, but it was just so different. When I saw this, I thought to myself, "How could someone of such a high status purposely change the words in order to support his argument? There is no way he committed such a sin." Because of this, I looked in a Hebrew version of the Bible, and it was a little different, but it was still very different than what Ar-Ridha (ra) said.

Hebrew Bible Verse:
"אֱלוֹהַּ מִתֵּימָן יָבוֹא, וְקָדוֹשׁ מֵהַר-פָּארָן סֶלָה; כִּסָּה שָׁמַיִם הוֹדוֹ, וּתְהִלָּתוֹ מָלְאָה הָאָרֶץ"
(Habakkuk 3:3).

Approximate Translation of Hebrew Verse:
God cometh from Teman, and the Holy One from mount Paran. Selah His glory covereth the heavens, and the earth is full of His praise.

I was still not satisfied, so I decided to look through a Palestinian Aramaic, a Bible from even before Prophet 'Isa (may peace be upon him) and the oldest version of the verse that I could find (See http://cal.huc.edu/). What I found was shocking.

Palestinian Aramaic Bible Verse:
"בְמִיתַן אוֹרָיתָא לְעַמֵיה אֲלָהָא מִדָרוֹמָא אִתגְלִי וְקַדִישָא מִטוּרָא דְפָארָן בִגבוּרַת עָלְמִין אִתחֲפִיאוּ שְמַיָא זִיו יְקָרֵיה וְאָמְרֵי תוּשבַחתֵיה מַליָא אַרעָא"
(Habakkuk 3:3).

Approximate Translation of Palestinian Aramaic Verse:
God revealed the law from Teman (Tema) for the people, and the Holy One from Mount Paran completely covered the Earth and the heavens with honorary splendor of the Praiseworthy One (Ahmed) and the ones he ordered.

This translation matches up with what Ar-Ridha (ra) quoted, and it even mentions the Praiseworthy One, Ahmed. As the language kept changing the words had changed. Also, the High Rabbi agreed that he was aware of that statement. This shows that it was still in the Bibles they were using at the time, ≈800 CE, but it is quite possible that they changed it after this debate to hide the evidence. This is such a stark difference between the text in the Bible of today and the one in the Bible from more than 2000 years ago. By the glory of Allah. thee Qur'an has been preserved from its first form till today in Arabic.

As-salamu alaykum.

GENERAL TOPICS | BOARD ANNOUNCEMENTS / Re: slavery in islam
« Last post by aliisse on December 11, 2019, 08:02:57 PM »
 In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful!

The premise of this paper is that Islam intended to end all forms of slavery. Muslim scholars have concluded that indeed all forms of slavery was prohibited: debt, kidnapping, raids, poverty, except warfare. To bring home the premise, bondage is prohibited even through warfare.

ONE

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "Allah says, 'I will be against three persons on the day of resurrection. One who sells a free person (as a slave) and eats the price,"  (sahih bukhari, Book #34, Hadith #430)

Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: There are three types of people whose prayer is not accepted by Allah: a man who takes into slavery an emancipated male or female slave.  (sunan abu dawud, Book #2, Hadith #0593)

This is a categorical proposition that indeed none can take a free man or woman into slavery. This means that even after declaring war upon a society, the Muslims cannot take such society into bondage; because, were the community the Muslims fought with free or not free? They were free. Thus, such community Muslims fought, their freedom can’t be taken away. This is an all-inclusive message, which addresses all free persons. If there was a different verdict regarding taking communities into bondage, these two hadiths contradict that. Such community is comprised of free persons: and the selling of free persons is prohibited. The hadith in Sahih Bukhari (Book #34, Hadith #430), clearly states he who sells a free person, such a man the prophet (peace be upon him) is against. Captives are bought and sold, however, such buying and selling (in all circumstances) is negated in the two above-mentioned hadiths. The two hadiths don’t say that one can’t take into bondage free persons, except through warfare. Rather, one can’t take into bondage a free person in all circumstances. To reiterate the premise of this paper, Islam intended to end all forms of enslavement. In all circumstances, taking of a person’s freedom is prohibited. Since taking of all person’s freedom is outlawed shows once more that Islam intended to end all forms of slavery.

TWO

In his demise, the prophet (peace be upon him) didn’t leave one slave. He freed all his slaves. This is important, because he is an example for mankind, for all times (33:21). And he shown through this example that ending of slavery is sought after. This further strengthens the premise the Islam intended to end all forms of bondage. By the prophet (peace be upon him) freeing all his slaves, means the freeing of slaves is promoted. Since the one that should be an example for all of mankind freed his slaves before his demise then we as Muslims ought to free our slaves, too. 

●   Narrated Amr bin Al-Harith: Allah's Apostle died, he did not leave any Dirham or Dinar (i.e. money), a slave or a slave woman (sahih bukhari, Book #51, Hadith #2)
●   Narrated 'Amir bin Al-Harith: Allah's Apostle did not leave a Dinar or a Dirham or a male or a female slave (sahih bukhari, Book #59, Hadith #738)

THREE

“ . . . And such of your slaves as seek a writing (of emancipation), give them such writing, if you find that there is good and honesty in them. And give them something (yourselves) out of the wealth of Allah which He has bestowed upon you. . .” 24:33

A slave can ask for emancipation at any time (24:33). If a slave has the strength to work towards his liberation, then the master must free him. However, when the slave is working towards his emancipation, the master can’t abuse him by assigning more than the slave can handle. Master must help his slave in whichever task he assigns him (sahih bukhari, Book #2, Hadith #29). Can’t abuse a slave. This is a general statement; however, a master can’t do anything that can be termed as abuse to his slave (sunan abu dawud, Book #32, Hadith #4073); and, can’t over burden his slave (sahih muslim Book #015, Hadith #4095). Once more, Islam intended to end all forms of bondage by giving any slave the right of freedom, by working towards such emancipation. The verse in question (24:33), delivers the right of any slave to march towards his freedom, hence, bringing about the possibility of any person enslaved to work towards his emancipation.

FOUR

There are 35 occasions in which freeing a slave is exulted. The essence in freeing slaves is to decrease the number of slaves in the community. Why? Why would there be numerous sources that exults liberation? Because liberation is good; and since it is good then bondage can’t be good, too. It would result in a contradiction. Since, the freeing of persons is sought after, it shows the Islam intended to end all forms of bondage. By decreasing slaves in the community; then we are to believe there is an inevitable march towards a point in which slaves are to be freed. How can something that is not good be enshrined by God? Either God enshrines liberation or bondage. Not both! Indeed, He enshrines liberation.

Emancipation erases sins from a Muslim. For example, if a husband has intercourse with his wife in Ramadan, he must free a slave (sahih bukhari., b. 82, 811). In the same token, if a Muslim kill in confinement he must free four slaves (sunan abu dawud, 14, 2681A). For an act to clean the sins of a Muslim means that such act is good and moral. Thus, emancipation is good and moral. Also, slavery was disapproved by God when he is speaking of Pharaoh enslaving the Children of Israel (26:22): enslavement was deemed immoral.

FIVE

There are 27 sources in the Quran that mention war and fighting, while not recalling captivity. In another case, freeing is decreasing the number of slaves; however, if the decrease of such bondage is moral, then how can captivity, (which increases the number of slaves), be good, too? When the Muslim civilization overwhelms a people and takes them into bondage, they are adding to the total number of bondmen in the community; hence, not good. However, as we illustrated above there are 35 ways in which freeing of a slave is exulted. If subtracting bondage is good then adding bondage can’t be good, too. It would be an oxymoron. To take or not to take! Can the Muslims take captives into bondage? Yes or no? There are 14 occasions in which captivity is not promoted; while there are only 3 times in which Muslims took captives. Since, the number of times captives were taken is rare, and the counterpart is 14 occasions, then to conclude, the former is not a law (i.e. captivity). For example, the prophet (peace be upon him) cut down the trees of the Jews he was fighting (59:5), which is not a law. Since the captivity happened a few times, just like cutting of the trees, it is not a law. Perhaps the trees were cut for a strategic circumstance, and the captives were taken with a certain strategy not made apparent by the sources. The law is not to take captives. If captivity is a law, why are there 14 other sources that negates it? Thus, there would be a contradiction if both captivities should not be sought after and should be sought after, at the same time. Since, there is a contradiction we must take either captivity or the negation of captivity as a law. Thus, we have chosen negation of captivity as a law due to its abundant enshrinement.  The captives increase the total number of slaves in the community. However, such increase is held to not be good; because, captivity was taken by the prophet (peace be upon him) in a very minimal time. Additionally, freeing captives was deemed justified many times (14 sources). Hence, the decrease of slaves is deemed good by freeing the captives or ransoming them. This further show how Islam intended to end all forms of slavery.

SIX

There are 23 ways that becomes an impediment to owning a slave. For example, the owner must pay charity on behalf of his slave. It means that the owner will lose money in owning the slave. On another occasion, the master must buy his slave clothing and feed him with what he eats. The owner must pay expenses on behalf of his slave; which means the master is losing money. Thus, due to these impediments the master is pushed to freeing his slave, in order to save money and resources. Also, there are actions the master must not do, which limits his conduct. These impediments are meant to promote the freeing of slaves (e.g., you can’t beat slaves, sahih muslim, Book #015, Hadith #4078). For another impediment, master who is abusive can’t own a slave, because he must free his slave if he beats him. These impediments show that Islam intended to end all forms of enslavement. By making the owning of a slave expensive means Islam intends to end all forms of slavery.

NINE

Before, the prophet (peace be upon him) sold a slave that was set free by his owner because the owner was in debt; and the prophet (peace be upon him) paid the debt of the deceased by selling the slave. However, after a certain time, the paying debt of a dead Muslim became incumbent upon the prophet (peace be upon him). So, instead of selling the slave in order to pay the debts of the Muslim, the prophet would pay for the Muslim who is in debt. Also, the prophet (peace be upon him) praised a person who sets his slave free after his demise (sunan abu dawud, Book #29, Hadith #3957).

Before

Jabir is reported to have said: A person amongst the Ansar who had no other property declared a slave free after his death. Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) sold him, and Ibn al-Nahham bought him  (sahih muslim, Book #015, Hadith #4116) (sahih muslim, Book #005, Hadith #2183)    (sahih bukhari, Book #89, Hadith #296) (sahih bukhari,Book #34, Hadith #351) (sahih musilim Book #015, Hadith #4116) (sahiih muslim, Book #005, Hadith #2184) (sahih muslim, Book #015, Hadith #4115) (sahih bukhari, Book #85, Hadith #80) (sahih bukhari, Book #79, Hadith #707) (sahih bukhari, Book #41, Hadith #588) (sahih muslim, Book #015, Hadith #4113) (sahih muslim, Book #010, Hadith #3901) (sahih muslim, Book #015, Hadith #4115)

After

Jabir b. Abdullah said:. . . and he who left behind property that is for his family. and he who dies under debt or leaves children (in helplessness). the responsibility (of paying his debt and bringing up his children) lies on me."  (sahih muslim, Book #004, Hadith #1885)

 Freed slave after death

Narrated AbudDarda': The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: the similitude of a man who emancipates a slave at the time of his death is like that of a man who gives a present after satisfying his appetite. (sunan abu dawud, Book #29, Hadith #3957)

TEN

These black slaves were not sold because they were an inferior race. However, there is a hadith that says, “a red (i.e. white tinged with red) person is not better than a black person and a black person is not better than a red person.”  There are 35 occasions in which liberation is hailed. This is not a law. Rather a onetime occurrence.

Jabir (Allah be pleased with him) reported: There came a slave and pledg- ed allegiance to Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) on migration; he (the Holy Prophet) did not know that he was a slave. Then there came his master and demanded him back, whereupon Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) said: sell him to me. And he bought him for two black slaves, and he did not afterwards take allegiance from anyone until he had asked him whether he was a slave (or a free man)  (sahih bukhari, Book #010, Hadith #3901)

●   Bilal, a black slave went to paradise before the prophet (peace be upon him) (sahih bukhari, Book #57, Hadith #97)
●   The Prophet Muhammad said: “O people! Your God is one and your forefather (Adam) is one. An Arab is not better than a non-Arab and a non-Arab is not better than an Arab, and a red (i.e. white tinged with red) person is not better than a black person and a black person is not better than a red person,[3] except in piety.” Narrated in Mosnad Ahmad, #22978
●   “O mankind, . . . Truly, the noblest of you with God is the most pious.” (Quran 49:13)

ELEVEN

In the hadith of an aborted fetus, (sahih bukhari, Book #83, Hadith #44), a slave must be given; however, this is not a law, rather, it is onetime occasion; because, in the same case (i.e., aborted fetus) five hundred sheep was given (sunan abu dawud, Book #39, Hadith #4561). Both case is meant for a limited time, instead of a law. Both can’t be a law, because it would surmount to an inconsistency.

Fetus for slave

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle gave a verdict regarding an aborted fetus of a woman from Bani Lihyan that the killer (of the fetus) should give a male or female slave (as a Diya) but the woman who was required to give the slave, died, so Allah's Apostle gave the verdict that her inheritance be given to her children and her husband and the Diya be paid by her 'Asaba.  (sahih bukhari, Book #80, Hadith #732) (sahih bukhari, Book #83, Hadith #41)  (sahih bukhari, Book #83, Hadith #45)

Fetus for sheep

Narrated Buraydah ibn al-Hasib: A woman threw a stone at another woman and she aborted. The dispute was brought to the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him). He gave judgment that five hundred sheep should be paid for her (unborn) child, and forbade throwing stones.  (sunan abu dawud, Book #39, Hadith #4561)

 In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful!

The premise of this paper is that Islam intended to end all forms of slavery. Muslim scholars have concluded that indeed all forms of slavery was prohibited: debt, kidnapping, raids, poverty, except warfare. To bring home the premise, bondage is prohibited even through warfare.

ONE

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "Allah says, 'I will be against three persons on the day of resurrection. One who sells a free person (as a slave) and eats the price,"  (sahih bukhari, Book #34, Hadith #430)

Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: There are three types of people whose prayer is not accepted by Allah: a man who takes into slavery an emancipated male or female slave.  (sunan abu dawud, Book #2, Hadith #0593)

This is a categorical proposition that indeed none can take a free man or woman into slavery. This means that even after declaring war upon a society, the Muslims cannot take such society into bondage; because, were the community the Muslims fought with free or not free? They were free. Thus, such community Muslims fought, their freedom can’t be taken away. This is an all-inclusive message, which addresses all free persons. If there was a different verdict regarding taking communities into bondage, these two hadiths contradict that. Such community is comprised of free persons: and the selling of free persons is prohibited. The hadith in Sahih Bukhari (Book #34, Hadith #430), clearly states he who sells a free person, such a man the prophet (peace be upon him) is against. Captives are bought and sold, however, such buying and selling (in all circumstances) is negated in the two above-mentioned hadiths. The two hadiths don’t say that one can’t take into bondage free persons, except through warfare. Rather, one can’t take into bondage a free person in all circumstances. To reiterate the premise of this paper, Islam intended to end all forms of enslavement. In all circumstances, taking of a person’s freedom is prohibited. Since taking of all person’s freedom is outlawed shows once more that Islam intended to end all forms of slavery.

TWO

In his demise, the prophet (peace be upon him) didn’t leave one slave. He freed all his slaves. This is important, because he is an example for mankind, for all times (33:21). And he shown through this example that ending of slavery is sought after. This further strengthens the premise the Islam intended to end all forms of bondage. By the prophet (peace be upon him) freeing all his slaves, means the freeing of slaves is promoted. Since the one that should be an example for all of mankind freed his slaves before his demise then we as Muslims ought to free our slaves, too. 

●   Narrated Amr bin Al-Harith: Allah's Apostle died, he did not leave any Dirham or Dinar (i.e. money), a slave or a slave woman (sahih bukhari, Book #51, Hadith #2)
●   Narrated 'Amir bin Al-Harith: Allah's Apostle did not leave a Dinar or a Dirham or a male or a female slave (sahih bukhari, Book #59, Hadith #738)

THREE

“ . . . And such of your slaves as seek a writing (of emancipation), give them such writing, if you find that there is good and honesty in them. And give them something (yourselves) out of the wealth of Allah which He has bestowed upon you. . .” 24:33

A slave can ask for emancipation at any time (24:33). If a slave has the strength to work towards his liberation, then the master must free him. However, when the slave is working towards his emancipation, the master can’t abuse him by assigning more than the slave can handle. Master must help his slave in whichever task he assigns him (sahih bukhari, Book #2, Hadith #29). Can’t abuse a slave. This is a general statement; however, a master can’t do anything that can be termed as abuse to his slave (sunan abu dawud, Book #32, Hadith #4073); and, can’t over burden his slave (sahih muslim Book #015, Hadith #4095). Once more, Islam intended to end all forms of bondage by giving any slave the right of freedom, by working towards such emancipation. The verse in question (24:33), delivers the right of any slave to march towards his freedom, hence, bringing about the possibility of any person enslaved to work towards his emancipation.

FOUR

There are 35 occasions in which freeing a slave is exulted. The essence in freeing slaves is to decrease the number of slaves in the community. Why? Why would there be numerous sources that exults liberation? Because liberation is good; and since it is good then bondage can’t be good, too. It would result in a contradiction. Since, the freeing of persons is sought after, it shows the Islam intended to end all forms of bondage. By decreasing slaves in the community; then we are to believe there is an inevitable march towards a point in which slaves are to be freed. How can something that is not good be enshrined by God? Either God enshrines liberation or bondage. Not both! Indeed, He enshrines liberation.

Emancipation erases sins from a Muslim. For example, if a husband has intercourse with his wife in Ramadan, he must free a slave (sahih bukhari., b. 82, 811). In the same token, if a Muslim kill in confinement he must free four slaves (sunan abu dawud, 14, 2681A). For an act to clean the sins of a Muslim means that such act is good and moral. Thus, emancipation is good and moral. Also, slavery was disapproved by God when he is speaking of Pharaoh enslaving the Children of Israel (26:22): enslavement was deemed immoral.

FIVE

There are 27 sources in the Quran that mention war and fighting, while not recalling captivity. In another case, freeing is decreasing the number of slaves; however, if the decrease of such bondage is moral, then how can captivity, (which increases the number of slaves), be good, too? When the Muslim civilization overwhelms a people and takes them into bondage, they are adding to the total number of bondmen in the community; hence, not good. However, as we illustrated above there are 35 ways in which freeing of a slave is exulted. If subtracting bondage is good then adding bondage can’t be good, too. It would be an oxymoron. To take or not to take! Can the Muslims take captives into bondage? Yes or no? There are 14 occasions in which captivity is not promoted; while there are only 3 times in which Muslims took captives. Since, the number of times captives were taken is rare, and the counterpart is 14 occasions, then to conclude, the former is not a law (i.e. captivity). For example, the prophet (peace be upon him) cut down the trees of the Jews he was fighting (59:5), which is not a law. Since the captivity happened a few times, just like cutting of the trees, it is not a law. Perhaps the trees were cut for a strategic circumstance, and the captives were taken with a certain strategy not made apparent by the sources. The law is not to take captives. If captivity is a law, why are there 14 other sources that negates it? Thus, there would be a contradiction if both captivities should not be sought after and should be sought after, at the same time. Since, there is a contradiction we must take either captivity or the negation of captivity as a law. Thus, we have chosen negation of captivity as a law due to its abundant enshrinement.  The captives increase the total number of slaves in the community. However, such increase is held to not be good; because, captivity was taken by the prophet (peace be upon him) in a very minimal time. Additionally, freeing captives was deemed justified many times (14 sources). Hence, the decrease of slaves is deemed good by freeing the captives or ransoming them. This further show how Islam intended to end all forms of slavery.

No captivity

1.Banu an-Nadir were deported, and they took with them whatever their camels could carry, that is, their property, the doors of their houses, and their wood. No captivity (sunan abu dawud, Book #19, Hadith #2998)

6. hunain  ... freed the captives of hunain without ransom, they came out walking in the streets. 'Umar said (to his son), "O Abdullah! See what is the matter."

7. Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin: Juwayriyyah, daughter of al-Harith ibn al-Mustaliq ... She entered into an agreement to purchase her freedom. One hundred families of Banu al-Mustaliq were set free on account of her.  (sunan abu dawud, Book #29, Hadith #3920).

And fear Allah in Whom you believe. (60:11). Women who ran away weren’t made captives.
10. What is your opinion about these captives? Abu Bakr said: They are our kith and kin. I think you should release them after getting from them a ransom. . .  I [Umar] am of the opinion that you should hand them over to us so that we may cut off their heads. . . [God chose the verdict of Umar] (sahih muslim, Book #019, Hadith #4360). 8:67-70
11. Thereafter (is the time) either for generosity (i.e. free them without ransom), or ransom (according to what benefits Islam), until the war lays down its burden. No captivity 47:4.

SIX

There are 23 ways that becomes an impediment to owning a slave. For example, the owner must pay charity on behalf of his slave. It means that the owner will lose money in owning the slave. On another occasion, the master must buy his slave clothing and feed him with what he eats. The owner must pay expenses on behalf of his slave; which means the master is losing money. Thus, due to these impediments the master is pushed to freeing his slave, in order to save money and resources. Also, there are actions the master must not do, which limits his conduct. These impediments are meant to promote the freeing of slaves (e.g., you can’t beat slaves, sahih muslim, Book #015, Hadith #4078). For another impediment, master who is abusive can’t own a slave, because he must free his slave if he beats him. These impediments show that Islam intended to end all forms of enslavement. By making the owning of a slave expensive means Islam intends to end all forms of slavery.

1.Feed them (sunan abu dawud, book 41, 5142) (sahih bukhari, Book #2, Hadith #29)
2. Clothe them with what you wear (sunan abu dawud, book 41, 5142) (sahih bukahir, Book #2, Hadith #29).

8. You can only have intercourse with her if she allows it. The master is in a perilous position if he buys a slave girl who doesn’t allow him to have intercourse with her. (sunan abu dawud, Book #38, Hadith #4445) (sunan abu dawud, Book #38, Hadith #4446).  (sunan abudawud, Book #38, Hadith #4444) (sunan abudawud, Book #38, Hadith #4443).
 9. You can’t call yourself the lord and call them slave (sahih bukhari, Book #46, Hadith #728) (sunan abudawud, Book #41, Hadith #4957) (sahih bukhari, Book #027, Hadith #5594) (sahih muslim, Book #027, Hadith #5591).

NINE

Before, the prophet (peace be upon him) sold a slave that was set free by his owner because the owner was in debt; and the prophet (peace be upon him) paid the debt of the deceased by selling the slave. However, after a certain time, the paying debt of a dead Muslim became incumbent upon the prophet (peace be upon him). So, instead of selling the slave in order to pay the debts of the Muslim, the prophet would pay for the Muslim who is in debt. Also, the prophet (peace be upon him) praised a person who sets his slave free after his demise (sunan abu dawud, Book #29, Hadith #3957).

Before

Jabir is reported to have said: A person amongst the Ansar who had no other property declared a slave free after his death. Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) sold him, and Ibn al-Nahham bought him  (sahih muslim, Book #015, Hadith #4116) (sahih muslim, Book #005, Hadith #2183)    (sahih bukhari, Book #89, Hadith #296) (sahih bukhari,Book #34, Hadith #351) (sahih musilim Book #015, Hadith #4116) (sahiih muslim, Book #005, Hadith #2184) (sahih muslim, Book #015, Hadith #4115) (sahih bukhari, Book #85, Hadith #80) (sahih bukhari, Book #79, Hadith #707) (sahih bukhari, Book #41, Hadith #588) (sahih muslim, Book #015, Hadith #4113) (sahih muslim, Book #010, Hadith #3901) (sahih muslim, Book #015, Hadith #4115)

After

Jabir b. Abdullah said:. . . and he who left behind property that is for his family. and he who dies under debt or leaves children (in helplessness). the responsibility (of paying his debt and bringing up his children) lies on me."  (sahih muslim, Book #004, Hadith #1885)

 Freed slave after death

Narrated AbudDarda': The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: the similitude of a man who emancipates a slave at the time of his death is like that of a man who gives a present after satisfying his appetite. (sunan abu dawud, Book #29, Hadith #3957)

TEN

These black slaves were not sold because they were an inferior race. However, there is a hadith that says, “a red (i.e. white tinged with red) person is not better than a black person and a black person is not better than a red person.”  There are 35 occasions in which liberation is hailed. This is not a law. Rather a onetime occurrence.

Jabir (Allah be pleased with him) reported: There came a slave and pledg- ed allegiance to Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) on migration; he (the Holy Prophet) did not know that he was a slave. Then there came his master and demanded him back, whereupon Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) said: sell him to me. And he bought him for two black slaves, and he did not afterwards take allegiance from anyone until he had asked him whether he was a slave (or a free man)  (sahih bukhari, Book #010, Hadith #3901)

●   Bilal, a black slave went to paradise before the prophet (peace be upon him) (sahih bukhari, Book #57, Hadith #97)
●   The Prophet Muhammad said: “O people! Your God is one and your forefather (Adam) is one. An Arab is not better than a non-Arab and a non-Arab is not better than an Arab, and a red (i.e. white tinged with red) person is not better than a black person and a black person is not better than a red person,[3] except in piety.” Narrated in Mosnad Ahmad, #22978
●   “O mankind, . . . Truly, the noblest of you with God is the most pious.” (Quran 49:13)

ELEVEN

In the hadith of an aborted fetus, (sahih bukhari, Book #83, Hadith #44), a slave must be given; however, this is not a law, rather, it is onetime occasion; because, in the same case (i.e., aborted fetus) five hundred sheep was given (sunan abu dawud, Book #39, Hadith #4561). Both case is meant for a limited time, instead of a law. Both can’t be a law, because it would surmount to an inconsistency.

Fetus for slave

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle gave a verdict regarding an aborted fetus of a woman from Bani Lihyan that the killer (of the fetus) should give a male or female slave (as a Diya) but the woman who was required to give the slave, died, so Allah's Apostle gave the verdict that her inheritance be given to her children and her husband and the Diya be paid by her 'Asaba.  (sahih bukhari, Book #80, Hadith #732) (sahih bukhari, Book #83, Hadith #41)  (sahih bukhari, Book #83, Hadith #45)

Fetus for sheep

Narrated Buraydah ibn al-Hasib: A woman threw a stone at another woman and she aborted. The dispute was brought to the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him). He gave judgment that five hundred sheep should be paid for her (unborn) child, and forbade throwing stones.  (sunan abu dawud, Book #39, Hadith #4561)
