What planet are you living on? For you to say Muhammad fought against slavery is like saying Hitler fought against anti-semitism. The Koran and hadiths encourages muslims to loot, and take captives from battles. These captives are than sold as slaves. Your denial of these facts are typical of so called moderate muslims. In other words, jihadist on the down low.

There are hundreds of Hadith that deal with slavery. Whole chapters of Hadith are dedicated to dealing with the taxation, treatment, sale, and jurisprudence of slaves. In addition to this, numerous Hadith mention slaves, and their relation to their Muslim masters. Here is a selection of Hadith on slaves: [all Hadith are from Sahih Bukhari, unless noted.]

Vol. 7-#137 Narrated Abu al-Khudri: "We got female captives in the war booty and we used to do coitus interruptus with them. So we asked Allah's messenger about it and he said, "Do you really do that?" repeating the question thrice, "There is no soul that is destined to exist but will come into existence, till the Day of Resurrection.""

Here, Muslims had taken female slaves, and had sex with them. Muhammad approved of this. He only admonished them not to practice coitus interruptus.

Vol. 7-#734 "....At the door of the [Muhammad's] room there was a slave to whom I went and said, "Ask the permission for me to enter".....

the quote reveals that Muhammad has slaves working in his house. Muhammad had slaves untill he died. So your silly attempts at portraying Muhammad as some kind of philanthropist only show how far you would go to stick to your lies.
