Egyptian imam: “When I want a sex slave, I just go to the market and choose the woman I like and purchase her”

This is the second Islamic spokesman to speak out in favor of sex slavery in recent days. And that should come as no surprise: taking women captive and enslaving them as concubines is sanctioned by the Qur’an: “And all married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess. It is a decree of Allah for you.” — Qur’an 4:24

Sharia Alert: “Video: Shaykh al-Huwayni: ‘When I want a sex slave, I just go to the market and choose the woman I like and purchase her,'” from Translating Jihad, June 11:

After Egyptian Shaykh Abu-Ishaq al-Huwayni’s controversial comments about jihad and slavery (see here) were published on YouTube, Facebook, and also in Egyptian press, he was given the opportunity to respond in a telephone interview aired on the Islamic satellite television station al-Hikma on 22 May 2011. In his approximately 20-minute response, he contended that his words in that clip were taken out of context–he was talking within the larget [sic] topic of offensive jihad. In this interview he explained the meaning of offensive jihad, and established through sources in the Qur’an and sayings of Muhammad that both offensive jihad and the taking of spoils of war, namely slaves and “sex-slaves,” are legitimate under Islam.

I condensed the 20-minute interview down to about 8 and a half minutes; the subtitled video is above, and the transcript is below:

[…] It is clear that offensive jihad, which I was talking about in that interview, that its purpose is to call people to Islam, and it is not permissible for anyone to hide the divine guidance from the people, under any name. They rejected Islam and the jizya, that’s it. The Prophet (PBUH) said: “If they refuse, then seek Allah’s aid and fight them.” If fighting occurs, there is going to be a winner and a loser. If the army of the Muslims is victorious, it will take spoils. Taking spoils is a fixed ruling in the Qur’an. Allah permitted it at the day of the Battle of Badr, as it is (recorded) in Surat al-Anfal. Allah Almighty said: “And know that out of all the booty that ye may acquire (in war), a fifth share is assigned to Allah,- and to the Messenger, and to near relatives, orphans, the needy, and the wayfarer,- if ye do believe in Allah and in the revelation We sent down to Our servant on the Day of Testing,- the Day of the meeting of the two forces. For Allah hath power over all things” [Qur’an 8:41]. […]

I want to say that it is not at all permissible to take prisoners from among Muslims, even if they are heretics, because the rule for Muslims is that they are free, and not prisoners. Jihad, as I stated in the beginning, is between Muslims and non-Muslims, from among the infidels. But if two Muslims fought each other, like from Iraq and Iran for example; if Iraq invaded Iran to occupy it, it would not be permissible for an Iraqi man to take a Shi’ite woman captive, because she is Muslim, even though she’s a heretic. Likewise if Iran invaded Iraq, it would not be permissible for one of their men to take a Muslim woman captive, because she is free.

Therefore jihad is only between Muslims and infidels. […]

Do you understand what I’m saying? Spoils, slaves, and prisoners are only to be taken in war between Muslims and infidels. Muslims in the past conquered, invaded, and took over countries. This is agreed to by all scholars–there is no disagreement on this from any of them, from the smallest to the largest, on the issue of taking spoils and prisoners. The prisoners and spoils are distributed among the fighters, which includes men, women, children, wealth, and so on.

When a slave market is erected, which is a market in which are sold slaves and sex-slaves, which are called in the Qur’an by the name milk al-yamin, “that which your right hands possess” [Qur’an 4:24]. This is a verse from the Qur’an which is still in force, and has not been abrogated. The milk al-yamin are the sex-slaves. You go to the market, look at the sex-slave, and buy her. She becomes like your wife, (but) she doesn’t need a (marriage) contract or a divorce like a free woman, nor does she need a wali. All scholars agree on this point–there is no disagreement from any of them. […]

When I want a sex slave, I just go to the market and choose the woman I like and purchase her. I choose the man I like, one with strong muscles, or if I want a boy to work in the house, and so forth. I choose one, and pay him a wage. I employ him in a variety of different tasks, then I sell him afterwards. Now, the country that I entered and took captive its men and women–does it not also have money, gold, and silver? Is that not money? When I say that jihad–offensive jihad–with the well-known conditions that I already mentioned from the hadith of the Prophet (PBUH), from the hadith of Burayda in Sahih Muslim, the coffers of the Muslims were full. Would someone who is pious and intelligent–would he say that this is a type of poverty? Or that it is a type of wealth? No–this will fill the coffers of the Muslims with riches and wealth, but as we said, with the recognized conditions. […]

    How do the Leftists and feminists of the West like their new ally in the struggle for MultiCulti values?

    Frankly, I’m glad that Huwayni has openly and honestly stated what he believes; and how he views those of us from outside the religion and our lands as targets for looting and enslavement. If there’s a good translation of his sermon, I hope it gets broadcast and published to all ecu-maniacal pseudo-Christian churches that would aid the distribution of the Qur’an or give space for Muslim worship in the name of being PeeCee.

    Again, I notice that Islam has a generally low view of the pervasiveness and radical character of human sinfulness. It is able to nurture such a robust conscience in its followers because it essentially blesses the lusts of its males as pious and law-honoring acts.

  2. says

    These creeps are licking their lips at the plunder and booty they’ll get once they take over the West. In Britain they already have well established pedophile networks dealing in kuffar child sex-slaves (google Charlene Downes). Islam is nothing other than ‘religiously’ sanctioned banditry, rape and parasitism. We need to stop any more of these parasites and criminal vermin getting into our countries and deport the ones already here, while we’re still able to.

  3. says

    What an arrogant, sick b*as*ard this fellow is. But at least he cites chapter and verse of the Qur’an, and Sahih Bukhari and Yusuf Islam, to make his case. Zudhi Jasser, Fareed Zakaria, Ibrahim Hooper, Keith Ellison, Barack Hussein Obama, what say all of you about this?

    Listening to this I was struck anew by the depth of the sincerity of these fellows pining for a return to the glories of an archaic age when Islam ruled over vast swaths of the earth. It is clear they still harbor fantasies about turning back the clock to a time when they could enforce the Islamic criminal conspiracy so explicitly articulated here. There is no possible compromise that can be struck with them.

  4. says

    I’m sure the muslim apologists will argue that it is the slave’s fault for putting the poor muslim slave purchaser in that position. Much like those who claim that a muslim men **had** to rape a woman because she wore a t-shirt and shorts, thereby offending his muslim sensibilities.

  5. says

    Is it just my imagination, or is Islam REALLY an expression of sociopathology dressed up in a theological skirt designed to justify a criminal ideology?

    When I see these clowns holding forth, all I can say is “I no longer doubt it.”

    Are there actually slave markets in the Dar al Islam now?
    I thought probably slaves could obtained by buying or bartering them from private sources.
    I won’t soon forget the report of the homosexual Saudi prince who murdered his personal sex slave in a posh hotel in London last year. Report said he had obtained the slave from a family who had “adopted” him.

  8. says

    After Egyptian Shaykh Abu-Ishaq al-Huwayni’s controversial comments about jihad and slavery…

    I’ve always had a deep liking for the spelling Shaykh, that’s Moslem naming as its best. Dark and mysterious, exotic, with just maybe a touch of foreboding.

    *** 33:21 ***

    What does one have to do in order to become a Shaykh?

    Also, does any old Moslem with the cash get to purchase a sex-slave, or just Shaykhs and above?

  9. says

    We Canadians must accept sex slaves as part of the rich diversity which results from official multi-kulturalism. Thanks again, Czar Pierre!

  10. says

    he wopuldn’t get a refund on his ugly pills, would he?

    his wife/cousin isn’t putting out and the suit isn’t going to help, so if he can, he better buy a sex slave. he has nothing else going for him.

    whats he saying? that hes so impootant and has slaves or that hes so ugly and repulsive he has slaves? or is it the big announcement, surprise surprise, that islam is an evil sex cult of rape and murder?

  11. says

    The emergent democratic Egypt apparently is very horny, and the old Islamic custom of sexual slavery is back by popular demand. The people want sex, they want slaves, and they want them now – with some war booty too. Slavery is the new freedom.

  12. says

    One thing is for sure you will never see this interview in the New York Times or any of the other main stream media outlets.

  13. says

    Pretty soon there will be anatomically correct sex robots (of both genders), so buying either female or young boy sex slaves will become a thing of the past. One would have thought that the much vaunted inventive genius of Muslims would have thought of this, since I have no doubt that this possibility can be found somewhere in the Qur’an. Instead, as usual, it took horny American or Japanese geek adolescent kufars to come up with the idea.

  14. says

    And that shaykh also has the galls to state that America does many times worse things. “OK, Americans don’t take slaves but they enslave whole nations, and they attack Islamic countries much more than they attack others”.

    THAT’s what he says, Obama! And he also says a few times that there are no problems among all the scholars about what he teaches.

    This attitude is so sickening; America did chase away some of the worst possible regimes and firmly wanted to replace them with governments chosen by the people themselves! So how can he say that America enslaves whole nations? How can any rational person believe that?

    And what I love to ask would have happened when the Americans had done what the Muslims according to this shaykh would have done with a conquered population, that is not of their own religion?

    What if the Americans would have captured and sold as sex-slaves the women of Afghanistan and Iraq??? As the Afghans and Iraqi’s probably would have done with the Americans if their roles would have been reversed. And not a single Islamic scholar would have had a problem with that!

    Islam is soooo egoistic, soooo religio-centric, so in contradiction with the Golden Rule!

    It also pleases me that apparently “no Islamic scholar objects to” the use of Hadiths (Bukhari, Muslim, Dawud, …) by this Shaykh according to him. I like to throw that into the face of Quran-only-Muslims, who deny the validity of many or all Hadiths, especially because they show Mohammed in such a bad light. And because of that tell us that WE misunderstand Islam!!!

  15. says

    Send a copy of this to every *female* politician in the western world. With a covering note saying; THIS is what a great many Muslims would like to do, and intend to do, to you (depending on how old you are) and/ or to your daughters, grand-daughters, nieces, sisters, cousins. This Egyptian Muslim ‘cleric’ – who is very far from being a ‘fringe’ preacher – means what he says and says what he means. This, stripped of the flowery nonsense you will hear from smiling imams and doe-eyed hijabettes when they’re pulling the wool over your eyes for the nonce, is Islam’s game plan. They feel *entitled* to steal the wives and daughters of non-Muslims. And they will do it wherever and whenever they think they can get away with it.

    Maybe one day the last thing this creep and others like him will ever see is the eyes of Sarah Palin (or of other angry Soccer Moms, just like her) and the big black hole in the barrel of a moose gun.

    Textbook Jihad in Egypt
    By Andrew G. Bostom | Wednesday, June 30, 2004

    we encounter extensive passages from William Lane’s classic book, ‘Manners and Customs of the Egyptians’, based on research undertaken while Lane was living in Egypt from the 1820s. And we see that this ‘cleric’ with his vile ambitions, his greed and lust and his absolute, narcissistic inability to empathise with the human beings whom he desires to kidnap, rape, buy and sell like things, stands in a long, long tradition.

    Bostom writes as follows:

    ‘As the scholar E. W. Lane reported after several years of residence in both Cairo and Luxor (initially in 1825-1828, then in 1833-1835), [note: his book was first published in 1836; subsequently revised; various editions since; Lane’s sister also helped him with his research – “The Englishwoman in Egypt’ – dda].

    “I am credibly informed that children in Egypt are often taught at school, a regular set of curses to denounce upon the persons and property of Christians, Jews, and all other unbelievers in the religion of Mohammad.”

    ‘Lane translated the prayer below from a contemporary 19th century text Arabic text, containing a typical curse on non-Muslims, recited daily by Muslim schoolchildren:

    “I seek refuge with God [allah] from Satan the accursed. In the name of God [allah], the Compassionate, the Merciful. O God [allah], aid El-Islam, and exalt the word of truth, and the faith, by the preservation of thy servant and the son of thy servant, the Sultan of the two continents (Europe and Asia), and the Khakan (Emperor or monarch) of the two seas [the Mediterranean and Black Seas], the Sultan, son of the Sultan (Mahmood) Khan (the reigning Sultan when this prayer was composed).

    “O God [allah], assist him, and assist his armies, and all the forces of the Muslims: O Lord of the beings of the whole world.

    “O God [allah], destroy the infidels and polytheists, thine enemies, the enemies of the religion. O God [allah], make their children orphans, and defile their abodes, and cause their feet to slip,

    “**and give them and their families, and their households and their women and their children and their relations by marriage and their brothers and their friends and their possessions and their race and their wealth and their lands as booty to the Muslims** {my emphasis – dda}

    ‘ O Lord of the beings of the whole world.”‘

    That is no prayer. That is all-consuming greed, violence and lust given a voice.

  17. says

    Duh! How can a “slave-of-allah” (abd-ullah) be both against slavery, and say it is legal? Elementary: they are AGAINST slavery, because its existence means that the world still isn’t islamic. They are for: slavery of Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, etc.

    As long as the overwhelming majority of the West’s politicians are fixated on the fiction that islam is nothing but a variant of Judaism and Christianity, Western Political Culture cannot advance.

    I have hundreds of books and articles on the arab-nazi alliance against Western Civilization. Please consider buying this one. It is the best documented of all. GOVERNMENTS should be taking official positions on this issue, rather than treating islam as benign, and denying the 300,000,000 Murders committed by those animals in their 1400 year aggression.

  18. says

    Someone asks how long it takes to become a “shayk,” like shayk bin-laden. I have seen pakistan’s “dar-ul-salaam” program for certification, and it takes 4 years. However, islam has so many sects that anyone can claim “sheik” status. Their credentials as “holy men” are about the same as was Muhammad-the-demon-possessed-pedophile’s claim to be a “prophet.”

    In fact, I dub anyone who reads this, the right to not only claim that title, but you are a “mufti sahib.” Write those fatwahs with authority.

    Once upon a time there was a bindweed. Bindweeds can’t support themselves. They rely on more robust plants to provide their infrastructure in the form of stems and branches, which the bindweeds twine around to reach air and light.

    Now one day, one of these bindweeds twined around its host so tightly that it began to squeeze the sap out of its stem, and sensing it was on to a good thing, it put out a tendril to suck the sap up. As time went on the bindweed got more and more greedy, and less and less able to support itself. The tendrils started to penetrate the host plant’s stems and leaves, sucking all the nutrients out, and the bindweed degenerated, losing the ability to feed itself.

    Eventually the bindweed lost the ability to produce roots and leaves, and just became a mass of parasitic strands sucking the life out of its host and producing millions upon millions of seeds to spread itself.

    The bindwed ended up as the noxious parasitic pest known as THE DODDER.

    Murray defended his corner pretty well, I thought, but should have made more of this fact: that OBL declared war on the US. and the US went to war in Afghanistan, specifically at war against AQ. Even Obama conceded that. So this was a matter of killing the enemy in war. He did mention this, but not forcefully enough I thought.
    What about that self-righteous and condescending braggart Paddy Ashdown. What a whacker.

    @Carol Eberwein: what is the quote in reference to?

    Back to topic: agree with posters saying that having this slavery stuff said so explicitly is very useful for we anti-Jihad folk to use in evidence against those many useful (useless?) fools who can’t believe the evil of Islam. SLAVERY!!

  22. says

    We can thank the proponents of cultural relativism for the 10’s of thousands of twisted fu*%s this whack-job with a boner represents. And they’re making their way to a neighbourhood near you, boys and girls. What a load of crap! Mass castration of all muslim males is the only solution to this catastrophic situation.

  23. says

    It’s important to examine his Muslim logic in its entirety and not just latch onto one part about sex slave, or anything else. So deeply embedded is their religious supremacism in their psyche that meaning of justice, compassion, freedom, etc., become inverted. Many Muslims, even “moderate” Muslims believe that mere presence of Western forces, never mind all the humanitarian aids, in what they consider Muslim lands grave transgression. Their hearts and minds cannot be won: They need to be rejected.

  24. says

    First of all Islam when it came it had two important subjects first 1- NO one should Neel or pray for any stone only for god it is the same concept like the Christine religion and the second part is freeing the slave. That’s my the people that didn’t believe in got didn’t want to accept the religion because they will free there slaves and always have to give the poor people 10% of their income yearly for charity and fest on Ramadan it’s a month every year you don’t drink water or eat anything from sun rise to sun set to know the feeling of the poor people who can’t afford to eat or drink and in the past history days when the Muslims invaded a country first to free the slaves and to make the people pray to only one god there where there choice if you want to convert to Islam okay or if you want to stay with your believes is still okay but you have to pay a certain fee to let the army protect you and whoever doesn’t have that kind of fee he doesn’t have to pay anything and they give him money every year and they never took any slaves they freed them and for my conclusion please ignore this man how is takes about Islam in his own explanation to the Quran its wrong what he is saying and the first thing the Muslims say when you meet any one is (el salam alaykom ) which means peace be with you

  25. says

    How do the Leftists and feminists of the West like their new ally in the struggle for MultiCulti values?

    They like them just fine, for two reasons:

    1. My enemy’s enemy is my friend, and both have the same foe: Western civilization with its emphasis on freedom for the individual.

    2. Politics makes strange bedfellows.

  26. says

    “It is able to nurture such a robust conscience in its followers because it essentially blesses the lusts of its males as pious and law-honoring acts.”

    I think you have a point there. Most religions are quite prohibitive regarding basic instincts – not just sex, but also aggression and greed – so one needs self dicipline and inner struggle to overcome temptations, which constantly requires an affirmation of one’s faith. Islam was designed from the get-go to satisfy all male instincts and cravings. You may not be allowed to have sex with a woman who is the “property” of another Muslim man (husband or father) because it’ll hurt the other Muslim man, but here’s a solution! – sex slaves are allowed. Want money? Raid a kaffir town, take the spoils and impose jizya. Want sex? Raid a kafir town and take the women, even children, as sex slaves. Want someone to do your work for you? Raid a kafir town and take kafirs as slaves. Frustrated? Feel like hitting someone? Find some dhimmi in the street, or if you don’t feel like getting out, here’s your disobedient wife, or second wife, or third wife, or forth. With such perks it’s a wonder there are any Muslim men who leave Islam at all. If there was a religion that bestows all these rights upon women I’d convert to it and never leave.

  27. says

    Kepha wrote:

    Frankly, I’m glad that Huwayni has openly and honestly stated what he believes; and how he views those of us from outside the religion and our lands as targets for looting and enslavement.

    Well”I agree with you up to a point, Kepha. But there is no reason to imagine that the “Shaykh” is really being more “honest” than his Taqiyya-spouting coreligionists.

    Falsely presenting Islam as something benign is only a tactic”and only a tactic when Muslims feel they are weak and need to lull the Infidels into a false sense of security.

    I believe that open calls for Jihad, for taking booty, for *enslaving* Infidels, and for murdering Jews means that Muslims have a new sense of bravado, brought about by the surge in Islamization in the Muslim world and the weak response to such savagery from the West.

    This is *only* a good thing if hearing such bald horror spurs the West toward serious resistance to Islam”if not, it will only embolden Muslims further to hear their vicious plans spoken of so openly.

    *I wouldn’t.*

    I presume from the stellar tone of all your previous posts that you are speaking tongue-in-cheek here, Doom and Gloom, but it is worth taking a serious look at this.

    Islam is most notably a horror to its clear victims”Infidels, women, children, religious and tribal minorities.

    But it is also a horror for Muslims themselves. By its very nature, Muslims are coarsened and brutalized by Islam, and it turns them into either victims themselves, or”far more commonly”it *turns them into monsters*.

    A “good” Muslim is a murderer, an abuser, a slaver, a rapist, a thief, and a liar.

    This cannot help but take a moral toll. There is no real love, or affection, or trust in Islam. There is only the exercise of power over the weak, which must be damned cold comfort to any but the psychotic.

    There is a reason why decent Kaffirs are not flocking to Islam. The average “revert” is a loser”or, more commonly, a loser *and* a thug. Healthy humans of either sex are not drawn to the exercise of naked brutality.

    I agree with you but the invasion will continue because stopping it and deporting those who are already here would require those with power to make value judgments (!) and that is not something they are prepared to do. How can they say that there are cultures that are incompatible with our laws? Multiculturalism would be deemed invalid. Janet Napolitano would be beside herself.

  29. says

    yes , these islamic creeps and reptiles are drooling over the thought of going jihad against the clueless west and east and taking all their wealth and property including their women and children for islam. once islam conqers the world there would be no holding back the good old islamic ways of slavery, sex slaves, pedophilia, harems, jihad, and other islamic goodies.
    The clueless west is making it easy for the islamists. Country after islamic countries are being rid of seculer rulers, and being handed lock stock and barrel over to islam. The west is spending a fortune in sharia complient islamic paradises of iraq, egypt, porkiestan, and afghanistan even as the it’s own population is asked to do without for the lack of funds. Hell. Let our bridges collapse, let our schools run down, let our roads degrade, we must build more and more schools, roads, and bridges in these islamic paradises.
    oh yes, lets also forget all those islamic nukes that will one day be used to hold the west hostage.

  30. says

    These creeps are licking their lips at the plunder and booty they’ll get once they take over the West.

    Sean, you make it sound like a done deal. The retrograde savages will never take over the West and you shouldn’t entertain such a ludicrous idea. Yes, they think they will conquer the West and they have had ample assistance from
    Western traitors, aka multiculturalists, and useful idiots. Western leaders have encouraged them to invade and exploit, and islamic leaders have strongly urged them to invade, exploit, and colonize. Muslims are lazy, shiftless, arrogant, dishonest parasites so why wouldn’t they gladly migrate to greener pastures for a free ride, courtesy of the stupid infidels? They are motivated and energized only at the prospect of jihad and copulation and I do not believe that these indolent, fanatical sex fiends have what it takes to conquer the civilized world.

    I will never understand the treachery of Western leaders and why they seek to destroy their own civilization. I’ve quit trying to figure it out but I think it goes much deeper than self-hate and guilt for the transgressions of past generations. Regardless of their reasons, they are despicable traitors and should all be executed for treason, except that treason doesn’t seem to be a crime any more. These days, ‘hate’ crimes are far more newsworthy and scandalous than violating an oath of office and betraying your country.

    Until apathetic voters wake up and realize what the corrupt politicians they elected are doing to them, they will continue their assaults on freedom, security, sovereignty, and the U.S. Constitution. The American people would not tolerate islam if they knew what we know, but most do not and powerful forces are working day and night to make sure they never learn the truth. But the truth will prevail, it always does.

    The NYT only prints the news that’s fit to print, so you get a highly filtered and often sanitized view of reality.

    “I won’t soon forget the report of the homosexual Saudi prince who murdered his personal sex slave in a posh hotel in London last year.”

    Speaking of Saudi princes, I see that one of them died a couple of days ago: Prince Khalid bin Abdullah bin Saud bin Abdulaziz, grand-nephew of the king, at the age of 54. no mention of what killed him. Fifty-four is not exactly old age, so one is free to speculate: maybe he caught something from one of his sex-slaves, or maybe someone cast a spell on him that the Saudi imams couldn’t exorcise, or maybe one of the CIA’s squirrels took a bite out of his jugular vein, or maybe….
