If Mohammed was so against slavery, then why did Saudi Arabia only outlaw slavery in 1963??

Why did the West have to force Saudi Arabia to make it illegal?

Obviously your average slave owning Muslim in the Middle East was a bit selective over what Mohammed said, they preferred to what the right hand possesses over the let the slaves go.

The last 7 countries to make slavery illegal were all Muslim majority nations, did you know that? It is called a fact! I said the Last, not the first, the first 7 countries to make Slavery illegal were all Western nations.
