Many 21 century wonder and cannot understand Islamic slavery. They picture slavery as practiced by the Americans against the Africans. The solution that saved the conquered lands (by islam) from being filled with refugee camps was the Islamic concept of slavery, where the non-combatants were incorporated into the Muslim society, they were given humane conditions with prophetic teachings of Muhammed SAW like: "forgive your slave 70 times before punishing him" and "feed him from your food, cloth him from your clothing". At the same time, the hosting home was given the security and safety that the slave was to remain under their authority. Islam is filled with encouragements to free slaves who they could see as ready to fend for themselves and not be a risk to Islam. Islamic history is filled with clerics and leaders who were once slaves and brought up with Islamic values. It saved their world and afterlife.
