    Slavery itself is offensive and inappropriate. Because slavery existed during the time of Prophet Muhammad SA and the Holy Ahlul Bayt AS, there is sometimes a mention of slavery in some narrations, however, we should not get the idea that there is some kind of relationship between slavery and Islam, because that is certainly not the case. Islam is always against oppression and injustice.

    Imam Ali (a): By Allah even if I am given all the domains of the seven (stars) with all that exists under the skies in order that I may disobey Allah to the extent of snatching one grain of barley from an ant I would not do it.
    Now, compare snatching a grain from an ant to forcing someone to have intercourse...which is more brutal?!

    I don’t think there is any verse in Qur'an which permits killing the apostates. If Islam allowed it, people would pretend that they were Muslims while they were not just in order to save their lives and this would promote hypocrisy! And what is the benefit of being a Muslim because you are afraid to lose your life?!
     
    As to slavery, I believe there is a misunderstanding. Many Muslims think the word "molk-e yameen" ملک یمین means a female slave while it can be someone who has a contract with you ( one of the meanings of "yameen" is vow or contract). There is no verse in Qur'an which allows Muslim to force these women to have intercourse with them.
    I read an article about molk-e yameens whose authour claimed that molk-e yameens were not slaves but poor alone mulim women from the city of Mecca whose family members were mushrik. They immigrated to Medina but they were alone and supportless in this city so they entered in to a contract with Muslim families to live in their houses and work as servants but they were not mahram to their employers.

    By the way, maybe this narration makes you feel better: I saw a narration which says that when Imam Mahdi appears, all blind or disabled people will be healed. 
    I have studied a lot about the signs of appearance, estimates, numbers, calculations,...it seems that it will happen in a very very near future. So be hopeful!

    To my knowledge there is no verse in Qur'an which makes stonning or killing homosexuals permissible (homosexuality is a disease and it must be treated. But those who have intercourse with someone of the same gender merely out of lust not because they are biologically homo (like people of Sodom), they deserve death penalty.
    Neither the Prophet nor the Imams ordered Muslims to attack other lands and force the people to convert to Islam.
    I am not sure the word اضربوهن in Qur'an means "beat them". Some people believe it was actually اضربوا عنهن which means "leave them or ignore them".

    That is how to acquire slaves yes, and many try to sweep it under the rug saying it wont happen again. If Israel attacks any country, and that victim country retaliates and wins the war, then suddenly all this sex slavery stuff will be 100% islamically justified. Now imagine women and children who havent got anything to do with such wars being victim so such ideas. Wars are waged all the time, all you have to do is point at who started it. When I referred to the ISIS, it is not the method they acquired them to be halal, but the other things they did and do to those poor women can be reasonably justified to some degree
    Also what makes things far more disturbing is, that it is generally accepted when a woman has had her period Ie 9 years old then they are a woman. Fighters would be allowed to actually take away children and according to many have non-consensual intercourse (Ie rape) with such children and adults alike, ofcourse all in the name of Allah. I do not bring in my own opinions on these rules, these are well 'justified' by scholars. I am merely exposing such 'loopholes' and reasons why people have serious issues with such rulings, and as Ibh Hussain said prevously, people leave the religion from such things.

    Welcome to promoting rape
     Scholars seem to try justify the use of female slaves for sex, whether consensual or not, it is abhorrent to hold such views. If Muslim women were taken and others did this to them I'm not sure people would be so quick to say, 'Well they are just a slave so you can do whatever you want'. And some wonder where did ISIS get their justifications from? And people wonder why those who use a rational mind and logic reject such a faith.

    Harm or no harm is irrelevant.
    Sex without consent is gross injustice.
    Simple as that.
