Reader comment on item: Saudis Import Slaves to America
in response to reader comment: Quran allows Slavery and Sex with slave girls

Submitted by Adnan (United Arab Emirates), Jan 12, 2006 at 14:24

Hey nancy , maybe in your reply you could have mentioned your age also . I am surprised your parents let you browse internet alone , cyberworld is quite misleading and dangerous for kids.

Anyways , coming to topic , in my childhood days also my friends used to tell me that Bible advocates rape and sadistic torture and the very basis of early roman empire was formed after raping of the natives by two brothers. Well , as I grew older it dawned on me how false ( and funny ) those statements were. Christianity itself came after dawn of roman empire and another Christian friend told me that Bible never advocates any rape or anything like it. High rate of rape and sexual mistreatment in West in colleges / clubs and streets is due to the social immorality of some elements of society.

So , dont worry , in schools kids tell you these things but just do some research on whatever they tell you. Having read Quran in detail , I know it nowhere advocates slavery or sex with slave girls. In fact sex is not allowed with anyone apart from ones wife. Just for your research there is an online website http://www.hti.umich.edu/k/koran/ and there you can see the verses that you had quoted earlier ... I am giving below verses from 3rd chapter only. Although to find a meaning one should know the full context of the verse , still from just reading these verses alone I dont see any mention of slavery etc.


[3.4] Surely they who disbelieve in the communications of Allah they shall have a severe chastisement; and Allah is Mighty, the Lord of retribution.

[3.24] This is because they say: The fire shall not touch us but for a few days; and what they have forged deceives them in the matter of their religion.
