Dear Muslims, The Koran Endorses the Sex Slavery of Non-Muslim Women as Practiced by Islamic State (ISIS)

Abel Ashes: “Dear Muslims: It’s not blasphemy or democracy or secularism that has destabilized your countries. It’s Islam and sharia and anti-blasphemy laws and theocracy and hereditary religion and hatred of those who are different.”

Islamic apologist response: “It’s not Islam that we blame.people who practice it in the wrong way are those who to blame.”

Abel Ashes: “It’s Islam that I blame. 100%.”

Islamic apologist response: “You don’t understand Islam so you can’t blame something you don’t know about.”

Abel Ashes: I know more about Islam than you do. Want to discuss?

Point #1: Women being held as sex slaves is true Islam per the Koran (it’s also true Judaism per the Torah).

Sahih International
O Prophet, indeed We have made lawful to you your wives to whom you have given their due compensation and those your right hand possesses from what Allah has returned to you [of captives] and the daughters of your paternal uncles and the daughters of your paternal aunts and the daughters of your maternal uncles and the daughters of your maternal aunts who emigrated with you and a believing woman if she gives herself to the Prophet [and] if the Prophet wishes to marry her, [this is] only for you, excluding the [other] believers. We certainly know what We have made obligatory upon them concerning their wives and those their right hands possess, [but this is for you] in order that there will be upon you no discomfort. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.

Or as my N.J. Dawood translation reads: “Prophet, we have made lawful for you the wives to whom you have granted dowries and the slave-girls whom God has given you as booty; the daughters of your paternal and maternal uncles and of your paternal and maternal aunts who fled with you; and any believing woman who gives herself to the Prophet and whom the Prophet wishes to take in marriage. This privilege is yours alone, being granted to no other believer.”

Abel Ashes: “That verse taken out of context make makes it seem that only Mohammed was allowed to take non-believing women as sex slaves (which would be enough to demonstrate that Mohammed was an evil, perverted, and cruel, and immoral man) however…”

Sahih International 4:3
And if you fear that you will not deal justly with the orphan girls, then marry those that please you of [other] women, two or three or four. But if you fear that you will not be just, then [marry only] one or those your right hand possesses. That is more suitable that you may not incline [to injustice].

N.J. Dawood 1956 translation: “If you fear that you cannot treat orphans with fairness, then you may marry other women who seem good to you: two, three, or four of them. But if you fear that you cannot maintain equality among them, marry one only or any slave-girls you may own. This will make it easier for you to avoid injustice.”

Abel Ashes: Apparently, owning slaves-girls or possessing other people “by your right hand” is not seen as “injustice” in true Islam. Slavery is justified and marrying slaves is justified. Polygamy is also justified, which I don’t have a problem with as long as everyone is a consenting adult. However, true, real, authentic Islam as invented and sold by Mohammed in the Quran justifies Muslim men to take children as wives and to take non-believing women as slaves and to “marry” them against their will.

According to the Quran Muslim men can marry up to four Muslim women if they can treat them all fairly and if they cannot they should either only marry one Muslim woman or ANY number of slave women that they possess as property because they do not have to treat non-believing women fairly. Believing in the fairy tales of God and the afterlife and angels and djinn and all the other make believe childish bullshit is apparently necessary to not be seen as worthy of death and or slavery, including sex slavery, in true, authentic, real Islam. ISIS are real Muslims.

Sahih International 4:25
And whoever among you cannot [find] the means to marry free, believing women, then [he may marry] from those whom your right hands possess of believing slave girls. And Allah is most knowing about your faith. You [believers] are of one another. So marry them with the permission of their people and give them their due compensation according to what is acceptable. [They should be] chaste, neither [of] those who commit unlawful intercourse randomly nor those who take [secret] lovers. But once they are sheltered in marriage, if they should commit adultery, then for them is half the punishment for free [unmarried] women. This [allowance] is for him among you who fears sin, but to be patient is better for you. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

Abel Ashes: A few verses later Mohammed the “prophet”, er I mean “Allah” (wink wink), contradicts himself (as the Bible and Koran do countless times). In 4:3 he says Muslim men can marry “any” women “whom their “right hand possesses” or “slave-girls” (depending on the translation), but by verse 4:25 he has clarified that the slave-girl should be a believer. Did slave-girls have the right to say “no” I will not marry you? Nope. “Their people” were asked permission but the girl herself was not.

Sahih International 24:31 And tell the believing women to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which [necessarily] appears thereof and to wrap [a portion of] their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers, their brothers’ sons, their sisters’ sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed.
Abel Ashes: Neither Judaism, Christianity, nor Islam thought to outlaw slavery. Is not slavery one of the worst crimes against humanity? Isn’t slavery one of the most immoral things a person could ever do to another person? Yet in all three Abrahamic faiths God has chosen to allow slavery while forbidding all sorts of things which are not immoral.
Sahih International 24:33

But let them who find not [the means for] marriage abstain [from sexual relations] until Allah enriches them from His bounty. And those who seek a contract [for eventual emancipation] from among whom your right hands possess – then make a contract with them if you know there is within them goodness and give them from the wealth of Allah which He has given you. And do not compel your slave girls to prostitution, if they desire chastity, to seek [thereby] the temporary interests of worldly life. And if someone should compel them, then indeed, Allah is [to them], after their compulsion, Forgiving and Merciful.

Abel Ashes: At least Mohammed , oops I mean “Allah” has in his “wisdom” made it permissible to force slaves into prostitution “if” they want to preserve their chastity. There is no option for the slave girl to have sex with someone she loves however. She is a slave after all. How “merciful” that she will be “forgiven” if the Muslim scum who “possess” her do choose to force her into prostitution. How “merciful” indeed.
Sahih International 23:1 to 23:11 
Certainly will the believers have succeeded:

Sahih International

They who are during their prayer humbly submissive

Sahih International

And they who turn away from ill speech

Sahih International

And they who are observant of zakah

Sahih International

And they who guard their private parts

Sahih International

Except from their wives or those their right hands possess, for indeed, they will not be blamed –

Sahih International

But whoever seeks beyond that, then those are the transgressors –

Sahih International

And they who are to their trusts and their promises attentive

Sahih International

And they who carefully maintain their prayers –

Sahih International

Those are the inheritors

Sahih International

Who will inherit al-Firdaus. They will abide therein eternally.

Abel Ashes: According to Surat Al-Mu’minūn, Quran 23:1 to 23:11 Muslim men should only lust after their wives and their slaves. How moral is that? Wow I am such a sinner compared to such “piety”.
It takes some very complex and dishonest mental gymnastics to try to explain how it is that looking at someone “with lust” is forbidden while having sex with a woman that one owns as a piece of property is permissible; and this is meant to be the example by which humans should live.
..and unlike many other issues (such as the complexity of what to do about non-Muslims in Muslim controlled territory) Mohammed did not change his mind about Muslim men being able to own and have sex with (rape) sex slaves as the commandment to Muslim husbands/slave owners in Surat Al-Mu’minun is repeated almost verbatim in Surat Al-Ma`ārij verses 70:22 to 70:36.
Sahih International 70:27 to 70:33
Sahih International

And those who are fearful of the punishment of their Lord –

Sahih International

Indeed, the punishment of their Lord is not that from which one is safe –

Sahih International

And those who guard their private parts

Sahih International

Except from their wives or those their right hands possess, for indeed, they are not to be blamed –

Sahih International

But whoever seeks beyond that, then they are the transgressors –

Sahih International

And those who are to their trusts and promises attentive

Sahih International

And those who are in their testimonies upright.

Abel Ashes:…and that is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg on one topic, that being “sex slavery” and not using any references from Hadith or the ijtihad of Muslims or any modern scholars or ideologues, only the Koran. What other evil and immoral things can I prove that the Koran teaches by using the Koran and only the Koran? Imperialism, war for profit, hatred of non-Muslims, insane superstitions, a belief and practice of women as being inferior to men, hatred of Jews based upon jealousy at Jews having invented popular monotheism and rejecting Mohammed’s more recent and Arabized version of it, calls to murder non-believers and those who leave Islam, threatening people (including children) with scary stories about “hell” to try to frighten them into believing in god, promising people rewards in “heaven” for obeying the commands of Mohammed, continuing to promote pre-Islamic nonsense as well such as the supposed holiness of the Kaaba and the belief in djinn (which is just stupid…no better word for it..stupid), hatred of “pagans” without whose equally false “spiritual” and “religious” beliefs Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Christianity, and Islam would not exist.
For instance the Quran does forbid, you as a Muslim, from being my friend since I am a nonbeliever in Surat Al-Ma’idah 5:55 to 5:67

Sahih International 5:55 to 5:67
Sahih International

Your ally is none but Allah and [therefore] His Messenger and those who have believed – those who establish prayer and give zakah, and they bow [in worship].

Sahih International

And whoever is an ally of Allah and His Messenger and those who have believed – indeed, the party of Allah – they will be the predominant.

Sahih International

O you who have believed, take not those who have taken your religion in ridicule and amusement among the ones who were given the Scripture before you nor the disbelievers as allies. And fear Allah , if you should [truly] be believers.

Sahih International

And when you call to prayer, they take it in ridicule and amusement. That is because they are a people who do not use reason.

Sahih International

Say, “O People of the Scripture, do you resent us except [for the fact] that we have believed in Allah and what was revealed to us and what was revealed before and because most of you are defiantly disobedient?”

Sahih International

Say, “Shall I inform you of [what is] worse than that as penalty from Allah ? [It is that of] those whom Allah has cursed and with whom He became angry and made of them apes and pigs and slaves of Taghut. Those are worse in position and further astray from the sound way.”

Sahih International

And when they come to you, they say, “We believe.” But they have entered with disbelief [in their hearts], and they have certainly left with it. And Allah is most knowing of what they were concealing.

Sahih International

And you see many of them hastening into sin and aggression and the devouring of [what is] unlawful. How wretched is what they have been doing.

Sahih International

Why do the rabbis and religious scholars not forbid them from saying what is sinful and devouring what is unlawful? How wretched is what they have been practicing.

Sahih International

And the Jews say, “The hand of Allah is chained.” Chained are their hands, and cursed are they for what they say. Rather, both His hands are extended; He spends however He wills. And that which has been revealed to you from your Lord will surely increase many of them in transgression and disbelief. And We have cast among them animosity and hatred until the Day of Resurrection. Every time they kindled the fire of war [against you], Allah extinguished it. And they strive throughout the land [causing] corruption, and Allah does not like corrupters.

Sahih International

And if only the People of the Scripture had believed and feared Allah , We would have removed from them their misdeeds and admitted them to Gardens of Pleasure.

Sahih International

And if only they upheld [the law of] the Torah, the Gospel, and what has been revealed to them from their Lord, they would have consumed [provision] from above them and from beneath their feet. Among them are a moderate community, but many of them – evil is that which they do.

Sahih International

O Messenger, announce that which has been revealed to you from your Lord, and if you do not, then you have not conveyed His message. And Allah will protect you from the people. Indeed, Allah does not guide the disbelieving people.

Abel Ashes:  I respect Muslims. I do not respect Islam. I respect Christians. I do not respect Christianity. I respect Jews. I do not respect Judaism. I have read the Quran in its etirety several times and regularly use it as reference material. It is true that I cannot read Arabic (yet). However I have read multiple different translations and countless interpretations from Muslims of all sorts of different persuasions. I also have friends from around the world, Muslim and non-Muslim, ex-Muslim (apostate) and “infidels” from Muslim countries and cultures, who I discuss Islam with including specific topics addressed in the Quran. I have also debated and argued with many extremist Muslims online including members of al Nusra and ISIS and Taliban supporters in Pakistan and Afghanistan and can assure you that for them it’s all about “true Islam”. I really wish I could agree with you that the extremists are following Islam incorrectly. I wish the more moderate, secular, and liberal strains of Islam were more in line with what is actually in the Quran, but honestly I cannot say that. If I said that I would be a liar. I have read the Quran and I know better.
…and for those Muslims and non-Muslims alike who are bound to see criticism of an ancient cult that is currently enslaving millions around the globe as a form of prejudice called “Islamophobia” yet again, let me point out that the Bible is just as bad in many respects. The Books of Joshua, Exodus, Leviticus, Deuteronomy, Revelations, Job are all full of horrible, immoral, evil things that no good natured person would ever support outside of religion.
