in response to reader comment: Slavery in Islam

In Islam, you cannot rape your slave. And by the way, there is no such a thing as raping ones wife or husband, and you cannot forcefully have sex with anyone in Islam. This does not mean that the partner, whether a spouse or a slave can refuse to have relations with their spouse or master.
