WHERE’S THE LIBERAL OUTRAGE: ISIS caliph held American hostage as sex slave
“The article went on to cite accounts that the prophet Muhammad ‘took four slave-girls as concubines,’ a purported religious basis for the practice.” Indeed it is, since Muhammad is for Muslims the supreme model for emulation (cf. Qur’an 33:21).
The Qur’an also sanctions the practice, although unsurprisingly, the Post doesn’t mention that. It says that Muslim men can take “captives of the right hand” (Qur’an 4:3, 4:24, 33:50). The Qur’an says:
O Prophet! We have made lawful to you your wives to whom you have paid their dowries, and those whom your right hand possesses of those whom Allah has given you as spoils of war (33:50).
Qur’an 4:3 and 4:24 extend this privilege to Muslim men in general. The Qur’an says that a man may have sex with his wives and with these slave girls:
The believers must win through, those who humble themselves in their prayers; who avoid vain talk; who are active in deeds of charity; who abstain from sex, except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or those whom their right hands possess, for they are free from blame. (Qur’an 23:1-6)
