Slavery in Pre-Islamic Arabia: The truth about Slavery

In pre-Islamic Arabs people were sacrificing their own children to idols, and Arabs had no value for women, specially in pre Islamic Arabs where if any child was born in poor family they sells their child after fee years specially if the child is daughter, and we don’t need to learn such Historical evidence because Such commandments mentioned in Jewish Holy script for sell your daughters and other nations man and woman. So that time many Jewish where lived in Arabs so they also obyed their Corrupted Torah and sells & buys their daughters & Different Nations Male and Female as a slave.

Referance👇

📖Exodus 21:7
When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she shall not go out as the male slaves do.

📖Leviticus 25:44-45
As for your male and female slaves whom you may have: you may buy male and female slaves from among the nations that are around you. You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your land, and they will become your property.

Also many other such verses in Torah about selling and buying male and female slaves.

So slavery system exists in pre Islamic Arabs & the nearby places before arrival of Prophet Muhammad, specially in pre Islamic Arabs because they didn’t have any law at that time nor any government system or any other source of income, so the poor people sells their male & female & the rich buy them, also the buyer not only from Arabs but the nearby rich people bought the poor people male & female as a their slave. so when Prophet Muhammad appeared and he declared that he was sent by God, at that time the slavery already exist and it’s not possible for anyone to establish a new law instantly against the current slavery situation, also when Prophet Muhammad declared that he is messenger of God the arabs & the pagan tried to kill him, so at that period when any poor or the slave sellers sells their male or female as a slave the companies of Prophet Muhammad buy the slave before the rich buyer because the rich buyer only buying the male & female and selling them to each other just for gain money also we find such commandment in Jewish Corrupted Torah for beat your slave.

Reference👇

📖Exodus 21:20-21
Anyone who beats their male or female slave with a rod must be punished if the slave dies as a direct result, but they are not to be punished if the slave recovers after a day or two, since the slave is their property.

So because of this the companies of Prophet Muhammad they started buying those Male & Female and selling them to such people who take care of those Male & Female, Until the revelation came completely, the slavery that existed among the Arabs where people selling and buying the Male & Female as a slave, so that time the Prophet and his companies also started buying and selling on a slightly different basis, so that no one would sell those Male & Female in wrong people. Islam humanized slaves and gave them rights, instead of viewing them as merely sub-human races, property, or ‘commodities.’ Slaves were ‘brothers’ and ‘sisters’ in the family of faith, partners entitled to equality with their masters in terms of food and clothing; they were not to be harmed in any way.

Abu Dharr reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said 👇

📖Sahih al-Bukhari 30
Your slaves are your brothers and Allah has put them under your command. So whoever has a brother under his command should feed him of what he eats and dress him of what he wears. Do not ask them (slaves) to do things beyond their capacity (power) and if you do so, then help them.

Here the final commandments about slavery in islam. 👇

📖Quran 24:33
And those who cannot afford marriage should keep themselves chaste until Allah enriches them out of His grace. And those of your slaves who wish to enter the contract of Kitābah (emancipation by paying money), contract Kitābah with them, if you recognize some good in them. And give them out of the wealth of Allah that He has given to you. And do not compel your maids to prostitution – if they wish to observe chastity – in order that you may seek the temporary benefit of the worldly life. If one compels them, then after their being compelled, Allah is Most-Forgiving, Very-Merciful.

The meaning of this verse is: If they Female wish to observe chastity – but if any Male gose against this Quran Verse and they do something wrong only for temporarily Worldly enjoyment, So Allah will forgive such a female’s, who has been forced to do this. Because it is not the fault of those female’s, they have been forced. Allah is Most-Forgiving, Very-Merciful.
