The Muslim slaves would be the non-believing slaves who converted as there would have been no Muslims elsewhere at this early stage of Islam. The incident I quoted about Ali raping a captive girl would certainly be a case of violating a non-Muslim girl. However, would raping a helpless Muslim girl make the incident any less horrible because the slave happened to be "clean" and "halal"?
