Sahih Bukhari, Book #25, Hadith 579, "Narrated Ibn Umar: Allah's Apostle enjoined the payment of one Sa' of dates or one Sa' of barley as Zakat-ul-Fitr on every muslim slave or free, male or female, young or old, and he ordered that it be paid before the people went out to offer the 'Id prayer. (One Sa' = 3 Kilograms approx.)".

Sahih Bukhari, Book #46, Hadith #693, "Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "Whoever frees a muslim slave, Allah will save all the parts of his body from the (Hell) Fire as he has freed the body-parts of the slave." Said bin Marjana said that he narrated that Hadith to 'Ali bin Al-Husain and he freed his slave for whom 'Abdullah bin Ja'far had offered him ten thousand Dirhams or one-thousand Dinars."

Sahih Bukhari, Book 79, Hadith 706, "Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "If somebody manumits a muslim slave, Allah will save from the Fire every part of his body for freeing the corresponding parts of the slave's body, even his private parts will be saved from the Fire) because of freeing the slave's private parts."

As muslim slaves existed at the time when Muhammad were here at that period, it is erroneous to the word, slave, in the book of Hadith to support that muslims could have unusual and deeper relationship with female non-muslims that are forbidden by Allah undoubtedly.

Sahih Bukhari supports that all muslims are not impure. Or in other words, all muslims are pure and that non-muslims are impure and that gives the supports that the slaves that Muhammad had relationship with must be muslim slaves instead of non-muslim slaves. We, moderate muslims, urge all muslims must not abuse the book of Hadith to have deeper and secret relationship with non-muslims since they are impure on the sight of Allah and that have to be forbidden.

Sahih Bukhari, Book 5, Hadith 281, "Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet came across me in one of the streets of Medina and at that time I was Junub. So I slipped away from him and went to take a bath. On my return the Prophet said, "O Abu Huraira! Where have you been?" I replied, "I was Junub, so I disliked to sit in your company." The Prophet said, "Subhan Allah! A believer never becomes impure."

Sahih Bukhari, Book 5, Hadith 283, "Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle came across me and I was Junub He took my hand and I went along with him till he sat down I slipped away, went home and took a bath. When I came back. he was still sitting there. He then said to me, "O AbuHuraira! Where have you been?' I told him about it The Prophet said, "Subhan Allah! O Abu Huraira! A believer never becomes impure."
