The Muslim right to have sex with female captives and slaves (under Shariah)

Reader comment on item: Distinguishing between Islam and Islamism

Submitted by Ludvikus (United States), Feb 10, 2015 at 16:21

To Whom It may concern,

Is it OK to have sex with women or girls who are captured by Muslim warrior in their Jihad?

Who are you going to believe, Daniel Pipes, who I believe is a very nice man - but not a Muslim at all - or IS, the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, which issues its own Fatwas?

Here is what MEMRI informs us regarding the publication on December 4, 2014:

"Islamic State (ISIS) Releases Pamphlet On Female Slaves"

http://www.memrijttm.org/islamic-state-isis-releases-pamphlet-on-female-slaves.html

So, it is Islam, not Islamism - according to IS - which allows a "nice young Muslim man" to get on earth right now, and not just wait for Paradise or Heaven; is it possible to capture 72 Virgins in Syria and hold them for Ransom which having them as Sex Slaves? According to Daniel Pipes, this is not Islam, but Islamism. On the other hand the Mullah's in the Islamic Caliphate says is's OK.

As Groucho Marx famously said, "Who you gonna believe, me, or your own eyes?"

Daniel Pipes replies:

I don't understand the premise of this comment. ISIS is as faithfully as possible representing the Islam of 1,400 years ago. As I wrote in October 2014: "ISIS unabashedly and brutally applies premodern Islamic law, making no concessions whatsoever to modern mores." See http://www.danielpipes.org/15021/isis-yazidi-slaves
