Islam allows Muslims to rape the female slaves owned by Muslim men, and no Muslim have ever found this wrong, after all it is as a trailer of Allah’s paradise. But still Muslims don’t forget to claim that only their religion is true, and Islam is the best way of life. I imagine how can any sane person accept a religion which approves and commands to rape female slaves, as a best way of life. As per an Islamic site:-
Islam allows a man to have intercourse with his slave woman, whether he has a wife or wives or he is not married. A slave woman with whom a man has intercourse is known as a sariyyah (concubine) from the word sirr, which means marriage.
This is indicated by the Qur’aan and Sunnah, and this was done by the Prophets. Ibraaheem (peace be upon him) took Haajar as a concubine and she bore him Ismaa’eel (may peace be upon them all).
Our Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) also did that, as did the Sahaabah, the righteous and the scholars. The scholars are unanimously agreed on that and it is not permissible for anyone to regard it as haraam or to forbid it. Whoever regards that as haraam is a sinner who is going against the consensus of the scholars.
So we see how Islamic Scholars are proud of their Prophet and his companion, who used to had sex with female slaves. They also command Muslim not to consider it as Haram, as it is divinely commanded by Allah in Quran and other canonical scripture of Islam, and whoever considers having intercourse with slave wrong is sinner.
But here a question rises, who were these female slaves with whom Muhammad and his companions used to have sex with? Why am I calling it as a rape? Quran answers these questions, it says in Ch 4 Verse 3:-
And if ye fear that ye will not deal fairly by the orphans, marry of the women, who seem good to you, two or three or four; and if ye fear that ye cannot do justice (to so many) then one (only) or (the captives) that your right hands possess. Thus it is more likely that ye will not do injustice.
Who are these right hand possessed is explained in detail in an authentic Hadith from Sunan Abu Dawood, the narration says:-
“Abu Sai’d al-Khudri said : The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) sent a military expedition to Awtas on the occasion of the battle of Hunain. They met their enemy and fought with them. They defeated them and took them captives. Some of the Companions of the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) were reluctant to have intercourse with the female captives in the presence of their husbands who were unbelievers. So Allah, the Exalted, sent down the Qur’anic verse: [Sura 4:24) “And all married women (are forbidden) unto you save those (captives) whom your right hands possess.” That is to say, they are lawful for them when they complete their waiting period. (1479)” Abu Dawud vol.2:2150 p.577
Those women who lost their families in hands of Muslims were forced to become captives, so that the companions of Muhammad and Muhammad himself can have intercourse with them. This can be termed nothing other than rape. Muhammad even allowed his men to rape those whose husbands were still alive, just because they were polytheists. This is not the only evidence which says that Muslims use to have intercourse with those women, who were captured in wars. In another verse, Quran again exhorts Muhammad and his followers to have sex with those who were right hand possessed.
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. Quran 33:50
So Muslims are required to first kill the Non-Believers by attacking them when they are unaware of Muslim’s plan, and then Muslims are free to rape their women and take their children as slaves. Ibn Kathir explains the above verse in the same way, he says:-
the slave-girls whom you took from the war booty are also permitted to you.’ He owned Safiyyah and Juwayriyah, then he manumitted them and married them, and he owned Rayhanah bint Sham`un An-Nadariyyah and Mariyah Al-Qibtiyyah, the mother of his son Ibrahim, upon him be peace; they were both among the prisoners, may Allah be pleased with them.
For Muhammad and his followers marriage is not required to have sex with them, nor the consent of women is required for them. The only thing required is that, they have to be Non-Muslim, so that Muslims can kill their husband, make them slave and then can have intercourse with them.
Don’t get confused these commands and verses are not from any ‘Guide to Rape’, but from what is claimed to be divinely revealed and divinely inspired scripture given to the most Noble man of our planet. Allah not only allowed Muhammad to kill Non-Believers and rape their women, but also exhorts all his believers to have sex with those, who are right hand possessed. This is true Islam, and I guess hardly a Noble man would like to believe in such God and his ordained way of life.
