SalamAlakum, What is Islam's stance on slavery? There are 29 verses in the Quran which refer to "those whom your right hands possess." From common sensical understanding these refer to the slaves of that time. How can we explain to a non-muslim that Islam indeed abolished slavery or reformed it? Please give references for any answers, views and also hadiths. IHH
Hello dear brothers and sisters, I apologize in advance if I made any mistakes in my facts or wordings, and mean my questions with the up most respect. "After the Battle of the Trench in March 627 (named after a trench that the Muslims dug around parts of Medina) against a large coalition of Meccans and their allies, Muhammad S.A.W. imposed the ultimate penalty on the men in the Jewish clan, Qurayzah, the third Jewish tribe (he banished the Qaynuqa tribe in April 624 and the Nadir tribe in August 625). The Qurayzah tribe was supposed to remain neutral in the Battle, but they seem to have intrigued with the Meccans and to have been on the verge of attacking Muhammad S.A.W. from the rear. They were judged guilty by one of their Medinan Muslim allies, and 600 of the males were executed." The sentence: Death by decapitation for around 600 men, and enslavement for the women and children. Was it unjustly to kill 600 male Jews and enslave the women and children? Couldn't have Muhammad S.A.W. could have shown mercy, exiled them (as they may have requested), or executed only a few? The whole Qurayzah Jewish tribe never attacked the Muslims, and even if a few were to have done so, doesn't the punishment seem not to fit the crime? Was the execution excessive and disproportionate? What was the concept of slavery back then? Thank you
