According to Islamic law, Muslim men can take “captives of the right hand” (Qur’an 4:3, 4:24, 33:50). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou hast paid their dowries, and those whom thy right hand possesseth of those whom Allah hath given thee as spoils of war” (33:50). 4:3 and 4:24 extend this privilege to Muslim men in general, as does this passage. “Certainly will the believers have succeeded: They who are during their prayer humbly submissive, and they who turn away from ill speech, and they who are observant of zakah, and they who guard their private parts except from their wives or those their right hands possess, for indeed, they will not be blamed” (Qur’an 23:1-6).
The rape of captive women is also sanctioned in Islamic tradition:
Abu Sirma said to Abu Sa’id al Khadri (Allah he pleased with him): 0 Abu Sa’id, did you hear Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) mentioning al-’azl? He said: Yes, and added: We went out with Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) on the expedition to the Bi’l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women; and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them. So we decided to have sexual intercourse with them but by observing ‘azl (Withdrawing the male sexual organ before emission of semen to avoid conception). But we said: We are doing an act whereas Allah’s Messenger is amongst us; why not ask him? So we asked Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him), and he said: It does not matter if you do not do it, for every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born. (Muslim 3371)
Notice that the controversy is not over whether the Muslims can rape the captives but only over coitus interruptus. The rape is taken for granted.
AN Australian Islamic State fighter who has been used in a propaganda video has claimed non-Muslim women are “used and abused” and should become slaves as it would be “the biggest honour for them”.
Abu Khalid, whom The Australian last year revealed was a former Melbourne man of Cambodian and Fijian ancestry and had ties to the al-Furqan Islamic centre, yesterday took to social media from the Middle East to make the claims.
Abu Khalid — who in June appeared in an Islamic State propaganda video but did not speak in it — made the comments after a non-Muslim girl asked him about his dancing abilities. “You should come to the Islamic state!” he said to the girl. “You can be a sabaya (slave), much more honour then (sic) being used and abused.”
He then told another man that non-Muslim women “know their men’s ain’t treating them well”. “Being a sabaya is the biggest honour for them And Allah knows best!”
The comments were made after Islamic State forced women and children of the Yazidi religious sect to be slaves who are often subjected to rape.
At least four Australian fighters have been identified as having Yazidi slaves, and horrific stories of their treatment — including sexual abuse — have emerged in recent weeks….
