Quran Abolished Slavery.

Reader comment on item: Islamists Endorse Muslims Owning Slaves
in response to reader comment: Self-evident contradiction in Quran

Submitted by saleem (United Arab Emirates), Jan 4, 2015 at 01:12

I think Quran abolished slavery. But using a word Malakat aymanukum (What your Right Hand Possess- actual meaning Prisoners of war) intentianally to refer to "slaves" readers of Quran treated "Slave" and "captives" as synonyms.

Early sources on Islamic teachings (Ibn Ishaq, Al waqidi) had their role in reinstating the pre-prophet (Jahiliyya) practices within Arabian society. The present day Islamic society is totally misguided by the so called early sources.
