in response to reader comment: When are you going to write an article of Christian Slavery

Christian slavery existed , only temporarily, ie after Columbus discovered America.It was later abolished by the christians as it was against the teachings of Christ, but muslim slavery predates Islam, having its origins in Arabic tribal customs.

The prophet owned male and female slaves, including sex slaves , he actively traded in them , took kuffar women and children as slaves , as war booty, gifted slaves to his dear and near ones.

Maria the copt was his sex slave, who bore him a son called Ibrahim.

So you see, Mr Zishan, it is a sunna as per Islam to enslave kuffars and it still is a practice in many muslim countries like Sudan, Mauritania.

There is nothing much to write about christian slavery as the christians have already repented about their misdeeds .
