Reader comment on item: Military Slaves: A Uniquely Muslim Phenomenon

Submitted by Abdul (United States), Jan 7, 2015 at 10:31


Bilal habshi (black) was slave by birth. In Islam he was freed and later he became the governor of Syria.


"I advise you ten things: Do not kill women or children or an aged, infirm person.
Do not cut down fruit-bearing trees. Do not destroy an inhabited place. Do not
slaughter sheep or camels except for food. Do not burn bees and do not scatter
them. Do not steal from the booty, and do not be cowardly."
Book of Jihad Muwatta Imam Maalik Book 21.3.10
