Since when the prophet keept black SLAVES? Please Log on www.islam-eatch.org click on Authors. then scroll down to Sujit Das and then click on it, that should taKEyou to Sujit Das Page. Then click on "A Fate worst Than Death" 14 August 2006. Read that and then scroll down to (b) Literature, then click on URL:http://answering-islam.org.uk/silas/slavery.htm and see youself.

I am black and reading quran and he saved so many black slaves like Abu Baker Sadiq, I think he was called, if you say you are reading Quran, then how come you can't remember the name of the slave,? prophet did free him after having him as slave for years because he converted to Islam.

Now read this Sura 33:50 O Prophet ! we have made lawful to you thee thy wives to whom thou hast paid the dowers; and those whom the right hand possesses out of the PRISONERS of war whom Allah has assigned to thee; and daughters of thy paternal uncles and aunts; and daughters of thy paternal uncles and aunts,who migrated(from makka)with thee; and any believing woman who dedicated her soul to the Prophet; if the Prophet wishes to Wed her; this only for thee; and not for the believers (at large)we will know that we have appinted for them as to their wives and the CAPTIVES whom their right hands possess; in order that there should be no difficulty for thee ; And Allah is Oft-forgiving, most merciful.

Try to understand Sura above.. Quran is the only religious book which advocates SLAVERY. If you think Bible also does that , than please tell precisely where it is stated? By the way I am atheist. he free slaves in the time white people used to buy slaves, at that time slavery was not known in majority of Europe except in Roman Empire. Actually it was the Arabs who used to capture Slaves from Africa and then sell them off to Europeans and Arabs use to keep them for themselves also. Have you heard the name Zanzibar on the East coast of Africa? Read the history Zanzibar when Sultans of Yemen use to rule there before the White man went there. By all means convert to Islam, but then there is no way back for you to exit, if you do you will be killed by your own fellow Muslims. this is also writen in Quran. log on www.faithfreedom.org Think before you leap. Read Sura 8:41 of you quran.
