Muhammad allowed sex with women prisoners of war

Reader comment on item: Louis Farrakhan Is Not a Muslim
in response to reader comment: "Slavery: Islam is Guilty"

Submitted by bobwhite (United States), Apr 17, 2007 at 20:02

"Muhammad is Islam, he sets its genetic code, and he trafficked in slavery and allowed sex with women prisoners of war, in their most helpless condition."

The law of Moses permits the same thing, although with more consideration for the feelings of the slavegirl-concubine. Moses did not permit the casual use of female prisoners by the Israelites but required them to marry them (as concubines). Once a female prisoner-concubine was used sexually her master was not permitted to sell her. If he tired of her he had to allow her freedom.
