Slavery is acceptable in Islam. The Qur’an has Allah telling Muhammad that he has given him girls as sex slaves: “Prophet, We have made lawful to you the wives to whom you have granted dowries and the slave girls whom God has given you as booty.” (Qur’an 33:50)
Muhammad bought slaves: “Jabir (Allah be pleased with him) reported: There came a slave and pledged 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).” (Muslim 3901)
Muhammad took female Infidel captives as slaves: “Narrated Anas: The Prophet offered the Fajr Prayer near Khaibar when it was still dark and then said, ‘Allahu-Akbar! Khaibar is destroyed, for whenever we approach a (hostile) nation (to fight), then evil will be the morning for those who have been warned.’ Then the inhabitants of Khaibar came out running on the roads. The Prophet had their warriors killed, their offspring and woman taken as captives. Safiya was amongst the captives. She first came in the share of Dahya Alkali but later on she belonged to the Prophet. The Prophet made her manumission as her ‘Mahr.’” (Bukhari 5.59.512) Mahr is bride price: Muhammad freed her and married her. But he didn’t do this to all his slaves:
Muhammad owned slaves: “Narrated Anas bin Malik: Allah’s Apostle was on a journey and he had a black slave called Anjasha, and he was driving the camels (very fast, and there were women riding on those camels). Allah’s Apostle said, ‘Waihaka (May Allah be merciful to you), O Anjasha! Drive slowly (the camels) with the glass vessels (women)!’” (Bukhari 8.73.182) There is no mention of Muhammad’s freeing Anjasha.
“Saudi prince is investigated over claims he kept seven employees as modern-day slaves at his apartment in Paris,” by David Averre, MailOnline, July 6, 2021:
French prosecutors are investigating claims that a Saudi prince kept seven employees in a state of modern-day slavery at an apartment he owned outside Paris.
The inquiry for human trafficking was opened after the women, mostly from the Philippines aged 38 -51, filed complaints of modern-day slavery in October 2019, said the prosecutors’ office in the suburb city of Nanterre.
The maids had been recruited in Saudi Arabia and worked for the prince and his family for several years.
They were allegedly paid the equivalent of 300 euros a month and said they were forced to work 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The Saudi prince involved in the allegations has not been publicly named.
The prince and his family reportedly take regular holidays to France during the summers, and are known to bring employees with them on their journeys.
A source close to the case who refused to be named said the women managed to escape during a recent trip to France.
The alleged abuse occurred in 2008, 2013 and 2015 at the apartment in a Paris suburb.
Some of the workers were required to sleep on the floor and barely had time to eat while serving the prince’s four children, according to Le Parisien newspaper.
The women claim they were subjected to various forms of humiliation and mistreatment over the years, including ‘orders of attending to the employer’s needs all day and night all week long, with no breaks.’
They were allegedly ‘starved, forced to eat leftovers and have to leave as soon as they are called for by their employers.’
‘The first time we met with them, what was shocking to see was that they were hungry. They were crying with hunger,’ Anick Fougeroux, president of the aid group SOS Esclaves (‘Slaves’), told the paper….
