Yemeni scholar: “ISIS has come to implement Islam as it is, by the book, complete with slave girls, the rape” [Video]

“ISIS has come to implement Islam as it is, by the book. It has not come up with anything on its own. It evoked the religious texts exactly as they are. It did not distort, change, or replace anything. It came with the text and implement it exactly as it is….They came in order to [implement] the proper Islam, complete with slave girls, the rape…”

Will Islamic apologists and their Leftist allies denounce Dr. Arwa Al-Khattabi as a racist, bigoted, “Islamophobe”? Of course not. They’ll just hope you don’t notice what she says.

“Yemeni Academic Dr. Arwa Al-Khattabi: ISIS Represents Islam; We Must Discuss This Honestly and Take Responsibility for What Is Happening in the World,” MEMRI, March 16, 2019:

On March 16, 2019, BBC Arabic (U.K.) hosted a debate about extremism and Islam. Dr. Makram Khouri-Machool, the director of the Cambridge-based European Centre for the Study of Extremism, said that most Muslim societies are peaceful and that Islam should not be accused of extremism. He said that there had been no killing of Arab Christians in the Middle East until American and Western occupation. Dr. Arwa Al-Khattabi, a Yemeni expert in European and German history, said that ISIS represents Islam and that it has attempted to implement it by the book without distorting, changing, or adding anything. She said that Arabs and Muslims must discuss the matter honestly and take responsibility for what is happening in the world rather than act like victims and blame others.

Following are excerpts:

Dr. Makram Khour-Machool: This is an important point for everyone to understand – the matter is between extremist forces in the West and the Muslims. This is why we say that most Muslim societies in the world are peaceful societies, and Westerners cannot look at the religion of Islam and accuse it of extremism in the world. This must stop – from a scientific, legal, practical, and procedural perspective.

Host: Okay let’s hear from…

Dr. Makram Khour-Machool: Just one more thing… The problem is that the Arab regimes do not have the power to stand before the European regimes and tell them: “What you want to apply to us – you must apply to yourselves.”

[…]

We had not seen the killing of Arab Christians and easterners until the intervention and occupation by America and the West in the Arab east and in our Arab world. The Arab Christians lived with their Muslim brothers in security in their countries, and there were no problems until the invading Western powers came in and nurtured the hatred and supported it financially, as they still do. Thus, there is no connection or correlation between Western terrorism and Christianity in the East.

[…]

Host: Do you agree with Dr. Gabriel Sawma’s point that ISIS represents Islam?

Dr. Arwa Al-Khattabi: Yes. This is the truth, and we must discuss this in full honesty and fairness. We must confront our [problems]. ISIS has come to implement Islam as it is, by the book. It has not come up with anything on its own. It evoked the religious texts exactly as they are. It did not distort, change, or replace anything. It came with the text and implement it exactly as it is.

[…]

They came in order to [implement] the proper Islam, complete with slave girls, the rape…

[…]

It is very unfortunate that we want to deny… We have a huge problem and we must recognize this before [we do] anything else. We have a problem, and we must take responsibility for it before we blame others for what is happening in the world. We cannot shut our eyes and deny this. It is happening because of us. When we deny things and place the blame on others, as if we are forced to do all this and are not the reason for what is happening… We must all own up to what is happening.

Muslima from Canada: ‘Having slaves is part of Sharia. I believe in Sharia, wherever Sharia is.’

Dura Ahmed is being treated as a victim in the Canadian media, and will likely be able to resume living freely in Canada despite having gone to live in the Islamic State. What kind of a life will she make in Canada? Do you think she will raise her children to be loyal, productive members of the Canadian state? It is suicidal to allow people who have freely gone to live in an entity that was and is avowedly at war with Canada and has called for the murder of Canadian civilians.

More on this story. “T.O. ISIS bride nabbed: ‘I believe in Sharia, wherever Sharia is,’” by Brad Hunter, Toronto Sun, February 10, 2019:

A Toronto woman who was a member of Islamic State’s women’s auxiliary and captured by U.S. forces claims she was clueless about the horrors committed by the death cult.

Dura Ahmed, 28, was one of two Canadian women captured in eastern Syria. The other is a former graphic designer from Alberta.

Regrets? She has none, according to CNN. Nor had Ahmed heard of the countless executions or the murder and enslavement of Yezidi women.

“Briefly, just briefly I heard about some executions taking place,” Ahmed told the network.

As for the Yezidis, she remained non-plussed.

“When I came here I heard. I haven’t seen one but…,” she laughed. “Well, having slaves is part of Sharia [Islamic law]. I believe in Sharia, wherever Sharia is. We must follow whoever is implementing the way, the law.”

Both Canadian women have children and lived in the tattered remains of what’s left of Islamic State’s caliphate.

According to the France 24 network, another 46-year-old Canadian woman showed up at the camp on Friday claiming ISIS was “doing good things.”

Ahmed’s husband arrived in Raqqa, Syria — the death cult’s heartland — in 2012. She was in school, she told CNN, and waited two years to take the plunge.

She knew nada about the events unfolding there. And she loved it.

Ahmed called it “an easy life” packed with Pringles and Twix chocolate bars.

Both her children were born under ISIS’ iron boot.

The 34-year-old Albertan would not give the network her name. She said that as a “Muslim wife,” she had to obey when her hubby asked her to go to the war zone….

Australian woman goes to Pakistan to be with her man, is raped, starved, and held prisoner

Lara Hall unwittingly entered a culture of violence that calls for the beating of disobedient women. The Qur’an says: “Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” (Qur’an 4:34)

And in a hadith, Aisha, Muhammad’s child bride, says that Muhammad “struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you?” (Sahih Muslim 2127)

And as for the rape, she was not a Muslim. One survivor of a Muslim rape gang in the UK said that her rapists would quote Quran to her, and believed their actions justified by Islam.

The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.

Lara Hall

“‘I was raped, starved and kept as a prisoner’: How an Australian woman, 30, travelled to Pakistan to meet the man of her dreams… only for him to lock her up, force Islam upon her and abuse her daily,” by Cait Kelly, Daily Mail Australia, January 25, 2019:

An Australian woman who was lured to Pakistan by the false promise of a lavish life with the man of her dreams was instead locked up, beaten and used as a sex slave for months.

Lara Hall, 30, became the victim of a predatory online groomer who raped her repeatedly over several months and kept her locked up in squalor.

When she managed to contact the Australian commission in Pakistan she claimed she was met with a ‘lacklustre’ response and offered only limited advice.

Describing her ‘living nightmare’ to Daily Mail Australia, Ms Hall said she was groomed by a man called Sajjad, who promised her a lavish life in a Spanish-style villa in Lahore.

Her nightmarish experiences started from a chance meeting in 2013.

Ms Hall, having completed a law degree at the University of Notre Dame and working in a prestigious position, struck up a friendship on a train with a Pakistani woman called Rhianna in 2013.

Ms Hall offered to teach her English and over time she became an honorary member of the woman’s family who told her how much they adored her and often brought her little gifts.

‘I didn’t come from a functional family, so it was everything I was craving,’ Ms Hall said.

One night Ms Hall was on a Skype call to Rhianna’s family in Pakistan, and made her first contact with Sajjad, who was a relative.

The pair connected on Facebook and talked intermittently over the next few years. Sajjad claimed he was also a lawyer and always appeared interested in her life and was eager to make her happy.

Sajjad’s friendship came at a challenging time for Ms Hall, who had battled obsessive compulsive disorder and still felt the legacy of a difficult childhood.

Despite her burgeoning legal career and strong professional prospects, her troubles mounted to the point where she suffered a breakdown.

‘Sajjad came into my life at just the right time, when I was completely vulnerable,’ Ms Hall said.

‘He promised a grand, amazing and happy life if I would ever consider him.

‘He said he had five houses and showed a purchase contract for a Spanish house he said we could live in and that I could decorate however I wanted – he even sent me pictures of the house.

‘I remember asking him if he would ever lie to me and he said “no” – he was very attractive and seductive.

‘I was seduced by the promise of this amazing life with him. My life in Sydney was so s**t at the time, so I thought maybe I would give it a go.

‘He would always say “I’ll fill all your blank spaces”. It was one of his favourite sayings. And I’d known his family here for a long time.’

Sajjad was also in contact with Ms Hall’s family. Over Facebook he struck up a friendship with her twin, Amy. He also sent her grandmother emails promising he would keep her safe. He offered protection and comfort – the security Ms Hall had always craved.

Amy was over the moon for her sister.

‘He was very compassionate, empathetic, always there to listen, issuing grandiose promises -like a friend, a very trustworthy person,’ Amy said.

In early 2018 Sajjad invited Ms Hall to his brother’s wedding in Pakistan. She saw it as the perfect chance to see if their online romance could turn into real-life love.

Intoxicated by the promise of a beautiful life and seduced by the man of her dreams, Ms Hall took the plunge and on April 23 last year she flew 18 hours to Lahore.

‘The house was certainly not like anything in the pictures, I was taken back when I arrived,’ Ms Hall said.

‘There were twenty people living in five bedrooms. He said they were just there for the wedding. It was filthy.

‘But he was being so nice, I still thought he was a dream come true.’

Over the next few weeks Sajjad admitted that he had fabricated the Spanish villa and that he was not the man he had claimed to be.

‘All feelings of love died. Then the abuse started,’ she said.

‘Sajjad raped me and his brother attempted to rape me on multiple occasions. I was a kept woman, I was denied feminine hygiene products and had to bleed freely, I was starved over long periods of time – on one occasion up to 14 hours.’

Ms Hall continuously refused Sajjad’s marriage proposals, and her refusal to convert to Islam only enraged him further.

‘I was made to present myself naked after a shower. One time I had a bit of shampoo still in my hair after showering and Sajjad grabbed me, telling me I was an idiot and slammed my head into the basin.

‘I was once made to lay naked in the bed with my legs open.

‘One time I was ill he thought it was “hilarious” – as I was vomiting – to come up and try to rape me while I was hurling.

‘I had come all the way to Pakistan to be a prisoner.’

Ms Hall’s 30-day visa had expired, and Sajjad claimed he had contacts working on a renewal but told her in the meantime she couldn’t leave the house or she risked arrest….

New Jersey: Muslima kept woman as slave, forced her to marry her so she could get legal residency

Why not? Don’t be so racist, bigoted, homophobic and “Islamophobic.” They can just be grateful that they didn’t run into Allasheed Allah.

Slavery is acceptable in Islam. The Qur’an has Allah telling Muhammad that he has given him girls as sex slaves: “Prophet, We have made lawful to you the wives to whom you have granted dowries and the slave girls whom God has given you as booty.” (Qur’an 33:50)

Muhammad bought slaves: “Jabir (Allah be pleased with him) reported: There came a slave and pledged allegiance to Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) on migration; he (the Holy Prophet) did not know that he was a slave. Then there came his master and demanded him back, whereupon Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) said: Sell him to me. And he bought him for two black slaves, and he did not afterwards take allegiance from anyone until he had asked him whether he was a slave (or a free man).” (Muslim 3901)

Muhammad took female Infidel captives as slaves: “Narrated Anas: The Prophet offered the Fajr Prayer near Khaibar when it was still dark and then said, ‘Allahu-Akbar! Khaibar is destroyed, for whenever we approach a (hostile) nation (to fight), then evil will be the morning for those who have been warned.’ Then the inhabitants of Khaibar came out running on the roads. The Prophet had their warriors killed, their offspring and woman taken as captives. Safiya was amongst the captives. She first came in the share of Dahya Alkali but later on she belonged to the Prophet. The Prophet made her manumission as her ‘Mahr.’” (Bukhari 5.59.512) Mahr is bride price: Muhammad freed her and married her. But he didn’t do this to all his slaves:

Muhammad owned slaves: “Narrated Anas bin Malik: Allah’s Apostle was on a journey and he had a black slave called Anjasha, and he was driving the camels (very fast, and there were women riding on those camels). Allah’s Apostle said, ‘Waihaka (May Allah be merciful to you), O Anjasha! Drive slowly (the camels) with the glass vessels (women)!’” (Bukhari 8.73.182) There is no mention of Muhammad’s freeing Anjasha.

“Feds: NJ woman forced Sri Lankan woman to marry her, enslaved her for 9 years,” by Hannan Adely, North Jersey Record, December 12, 2018 (thanks to David):

A Secaucus woman has been accused of enslavement for allegedly forcing a Sri Lankan national to work for nine years without pay, federal prosecutors said.

Alia Imad Faleh Al Hunaity, 43, was arraigned Wednesday in federal court in Camden and charged with forced labor, alien harboring and marriage fraud.

Attorneys said Hunaity, also known as Alia Al Qaterneh, brought the victim to the United States in 2009 on a temporary visa for domestic work, then caused her to overstay her visa.

Hunaity allegedly forced the victim to work without pay and limited her interactions with the outside world. In 2018, Hunaity forced the victim to marry her so she could get legal residency and continue to work without pay, according to court documents.

Hunaity, who was arrested on Sept.19, has pleaded not guilty and is free on $150,000 unsecured bond. She faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison for forced labor and a possible fine of $250,000 or the equivalent of lost wages, whichever is greater. She faces up to five years for each charge of alien harboring and marriage fraud….

July, 1625: When Moroccan Muslims Seized White Slaves in England

In my new book The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS, I recount how in July 1625, a twenty-ship contingent of jihadi pirates from Morocco arrived in Mount’s Bay in southern England. Bursting into the local parish church during a service, they captured sixty men, women, and children from the terrified congregation and took them back to Morocco, to live a life of slavery. At Looe, they took eighty more and set the town ablaze. In a series of similar raids, they took two hundred people as slaves and seized twenty-seven British ships as well.

All this is forgotten in England today, where any discussion of the jihad threat will get you charges of “Islamophobia” and “racism.” That’s the value of history: to remind people that people didn’t always think and act the same way, and that the present way they think and act may not be correct or wise, based on past experience. A good history book is like a ticket to a faraway, exotic land — but far cheaper, and generally more enlightening.

African migrants report slavery, torture in 99% Muslim Algeria

Muslim Arabs holding black slaves continues to this day in countries such as Mauritania and Sudan.

Now:

Dozens of Africans say they were sold for labour and trapped in slavery in Algeria in what aid agencies fear may be a widening trend of abusing migrants headed for a new life in Europe.

Algeria is 99% Muslim.

Just as we do not hear gay activists loudly opposing Islamic hate and intolerance against them, nor do we  hear feminist outrage over the deplorable treatment of women in Islam. We also do not hear an outcry from black activists about black slavery in Islam. And if they did speak out, the mainstream media would absurdly label them “racist” and “intolerant.”

“African migrants report torture, slavery in Algeria,” by Nellie Peyton, Reuters, May 30, 2018:

DAKAR (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Dozens of Africans say they were sold for labour and trapped in slavery in Algeria in what aid agencies fear may be a widening trend of abusing migrants headed for a new life in Europe.

Algerian authorities could not be reached for comment and several experts cast doubt on claims that such abuses are widespread in the north African country.

The tightly governed state has become a popular gateway to the Mediterranean since it became tougher to pass through Libya, where slavery, rape and torture are rife.

Amid a surge in anti-migrant sentiment, Algeria since late last year has sent thousands of migrants back over its southern border into Niger, according to the United Nations Migration Agency (IOM), where many tell stories of exploitation.

The scale of abuse is not known, but an IOM survey of thousands of migrants suggested it could rival Libya.

The Thomson Reuters Foundation heard detailed accounts of forced labour and slavery from an international charity and a local association in Agadez, Niger’s main migrant transit hub, and interviewed two of the victims by telephone.

“The first time they sold me for 100,000 CFA francs ($170),” said Ousmane Bah, a 21-year-old from Guinea who said he was sold twice in Algeria by unknown captors and worked in construction….

VIDEO: The Islamic View of Black Slaves by David Wood

In Sunan an-Nasai 4625, we read:

It was narrated that Jabir said: “A slave came and gave his pledge to the Messenger of Allah to emigrate, and the Prophet did not realize that he was a slave. Then his master came looking for him. The Prophet said: ‘Sell him to me.’ So he bought him for two black slaves, then he did not accept the pledge of anyone after that until he had asked: ‘Is he a slave?’”

Disturbingly, the heading of this Hadith describes the content as: “Selling Animals for Animals of Different Amounts or Quality.”

Hence, Muslim sources describe trading slaves as trading animals.

What else can we learn from this Hadith? David Wood discusses the issue in his video “The Islamic View of Black Slaves.”

Islamic State: If Muslims ran America, black slave trade would have continued

“In a bizarre digression from their latest anti-Christian tirade, the Islamic State addressed the question of black slavery, claiming that if Muslims had been in charge of Western states, the slave trade would have continued.”

The Islamic State message should be no surprise, given how blacks are treated throughout the Islamic world, despite the IS explaining that it’s more about slavery of the infidel than about race. One need only look at the racist genocide of blacks in Darfur and the slavery of blacks still going on in Islamic states, as well as the deep involvement of Arabs in the American black slave trade.

Jihad Watch reported about an Islamic State message to Ferguson protesters last year: “Hey blacks ISIS will save you”; and has also reported about instances that reveal the black-jihadi alliance in America. For example, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan accused whites of persecuting blacks, pointing out ominously that the Qur’an teaches that persecution is worse than slaughter (cf. Qur’an 2:191 and 2:217) , thereby justifying the slaughter of the alleged persecutors. Farrakhan then called for a bloody race war when he stated that he was looking for “10,000 fearless men” to “rise up and kill those who kill us; stalk them and kill them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling!”

He was referencing police shootings of blacks, although whites get shot by police far more frequently than blacks do; more violent crimes are being committed by blacks; and blacks kill blacks in staggering numbers. But Farrakhan does not care about those inconvenient truths. Why? Because he is racist himself, and acquires money and fame from sensationalizing historic black victimization.

The Washington Post has also reported that the Islamic State, along with other jihadist movements, was taking advantage of the Ferguson crisis to recruit blacks for jihad.

The article stated: “All of the jihadists interviewed said Brown’s death confirms their beliefs that blacks are seen as second-class citizens by whites and especially by the police. ‘I think that blacks in the U.S. will look more towards Islam,’ said Anjem Choudary from Great Britain, co-founder of the banned ‘al-­Muhajiroun’ group.”

The fact that Muslims enslave blacks in Islamic states is nothing new, and now that the Islamic State has come out and stated that if Muslims ran America, “Lucrative African Slave Trade Would Have Continued”, where is Farrakhan in his condemnation of black slavery?

The Islamic State supported its position about slavery on Islamic theological grounds, and went on to blame the “emancipation and the end to black slavery on a corrupt Christianity that has gone soft and no longer lives according to the most brutal dictates of the Old Testament”. It goes on to state that “the clear difference between Muslims and the corrupt and deviant Jews and Christians is that Muslims are not ashamed of abiding by the rules sent down from their Lord regarding war and enforcement of divine law”.

To be noted in the very telling article below: the Islamic State directs its most vitriolic rancor against Jews, but also states what it would have done to Native Americans and the Japanese.

Stacks of evidence reveal clearly that the West is at war with jihadists who base their atrocities on a literal reading of Islamic texts; yet the Pope and leftist leaders continue to deny the religious nature of this war, even as the Islamic religion inspires the very zeal that drives it on.

“Islamic State: If Muslims Ran America, ‘Lucrative African Slave Trade Would Have Continued’”, by Thomas D. Williams, Breitbart, August 2, 2016:

In a bizarre digression from their latest anti-Christian tirade, the Islamic State addressed the question of black slavery, claiming that if Muslims had been in charge of Western states, the slave trade would have continued.

If Muslims rather than Christians had been running things in countries like the U.S., the Islamic State argues in the most recent issue of its propaganda magazine Dabiq, “the lucrative African slave trade would have continued, supporting a strong economy.”

As usual, the Islamic State supports its position with theological arguments, suggesting that Allah is pleased with slavery, as long as the slaves are infidels.

“The Islamic leadership would not have bypassed Allah’s permission to sell captured pagan humans, to teach them, and to convert them, as they worked hard for their masters in building a beautiful country,” the article reads.

Trading in black African slaves, the magazine notes, would not be done for racial reasons but religious ones.

“All of this would be done, not for racism, nationalism, or political lies, but to make the word of Allah supreme. Jihad is the ultimate show of one’s love for his Creator, facing the clashing of swords and buzzing of bullets on the battlefield, seeking to slaughter His enemies – whom he hates for Allah’s hatred of them.”….

….The Islamists blame emancipation and the end to black slavery on a corrupt Christianity that has gone soft and no longer lives according to the most brutal dictates of the Old Testament.

“The clear difference between Muslims and the corrupt and deviant Jews and Christians is that Muslims are not ashamed of abiding by the rules sent down from their Lord regarding war and enforcement of divine law,” the authors claim.

“And since those mujahidin would have done so bound by the Law, they would have been thorough and without some ‘politically correct’ need to apologize years later.”

Along with African slavery, the Islamic State authors also state that “if it were the Muslims,” instead of Christians, who had “fought the Japanese and Vietnamese or invaded the lands of the Native Americans, there would have been no regrets in killing and enslaving those therein.”

“The Japanese, for example, would have been forcefully converted to Islam from their pagan ways – and if they stubbornly declined, perhaps another nuke would change their mind. The Vietnamese would likewise be offered Islam or beds of napalm.”

As for the Native Americans, the article continues, after the slaughter of their men, “then the Muslims would have taken their surviving women and children as slaves, raising the children as model Muslims and impregnating their women to produce a new generation of mujahidin.”

Finally, the Islamic State authors turn to the Jews, saving some of their most bitter vitriol for their sworn enemies..

“As for the treacherous Jews of Europe and elsewhere – those who would betray their covenant – then their post-pubescent males would face a slaughter that would make the Holocaust sound like a bedtime story, as their women would be made to serve their husbands’ and fathers’ killers.”

Islamic State Issues ‘Rules for Treatment of Sex Slaves’

“Islam preaches freedom to slaves, not slavery. Slavery was the status quo when Islam came around. Judaism, Christianity, Greek, Roman, and Persian civilizations all practiced it and took the females of their enemies as sex slaves. So Islam found this abhorrent practise and worked to gradually remove it.”

“Judaism, Christianity, Greek, Roman, and Persian civilizations all practiced it and took the females of their enemies as sex slaves.” Even if that were true, and it certainly is not, the Qur’an is the only holy book of a major religion that sanctions the taking of sex slaves (4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50). This al-Azhar professor is simply trying to obscure that fact, even as a Muslim group (not a Jewish, Christian, Greek, Roman or Persian one) has reintroduced the practice in the modern world precisely because it has Qur’anic sanction.

“In September 2014 more than 120 Islamic scholars from around the world issued an open letter to IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi refuting the group’s religious arguments to justify many of its actions. The scholars noted that the ‘reintroduction of slavery is forbidden in Islam.’” That letter also was a cynical and deceptive exercise, as I explained in detail here and in summary form here.

“Exclusive – Islamic State ruling aims to settle who can have sex with female slaves,” by Jonathan Landay, Warren Strobel, and Phil Stewart, Reuters, December 29, 2015:

Islamic State theologians have issued an extremely detailed ruling on when “owners” of women enslaved by the extremist group can have sex with them, in an apparent bid to curb what they called violations in the treatment of captured females.

The ruling or fatwa has the force of law and appears to go beyond the Islamic State’s previous known utterances on slavery, a leading Islamic State scholar said. It sheds new light on how the group is trying to reinterpret centuries-old teachings to justify the rape of women in the swaths of Syria and Iraq it controls.

For a U.S. government translation of the fatwa click here.

The fatwa was among a huge trove of documents captured by U.S. Special Operations Forces during a raid targeting a top Islamic State official in Syria in May. Reuters has reviewed the document, which has not been previously published, but couldn’t independently confirm its authenticity.

Among the fatwa’s injunctions are bans on a father and son having sex with the same female slave; and the owner of a mother and daughter having sex with both. Joint owners of a female captive are similarly enjoined from intercourse because she is viewed as “part of a joint ownership.”

The United Nations and human rights groups have accused the Islamic State of the systematic abduction and rape of thousands of women and girls as young as 12, especially members of the Yazidi minority in northern Iraq. Many have been given to fighters as a reward or sold as sex slaves.

Far from trying to conceal the practice, Islamic State has boasted about it and established a department of “war spoils” to manage slavery. Reuters reported on the existence of the department on Monday.

In an April report, Human Rights Watch interviewed 20 female escapees who recounted how Islamic State fighters separated young women and girls from men and boys and older women. They were moved “in an organised and methodical fashion to various places in Iraq and Syria.” They were then sold or given as gifts and repeatedly raped or subjected to sexual violence.

Fatwa No. 64, dated Jan. 29, 2015, and issued by Islamic State’s Committee of Research and Fatwas, appears to codify sexual relations between IS fighters and their female captives for the first time, going further than a pamphlet issued by the group in 2014 on how to treat slaves.

The fatwa starts with a question: “Some of the brothers have committed violations in the matter of the treatment of the female slaves. These violations are not permitted by Sharia law because these rules have not been dealt with in ages. Are there any warnings pertaining to this matter?”

It then lists 15 injunctions, which in some instances go into explicit detail. For example:

“If the owner of a female captive, who has a daughter suitable for intercourse, has sexual relations with the latter, he is not permitted to have intercourse with her mother and she is permanently off limits to him. Should he have intercourse with her mother then he is not permitted to have intercourse with her daughter and she is to be off limits to him.”

Islamic State’s rape of female captives has been well documented, but a leading IS expert at Princeton University, Cole Bunzel, who has reviewed many of the group’s writings, said the fatwa went beyond what has previously been published by the militants on how to treat female slaves.

“It reveals the actual concerns of IS slave owners,” he said in an email.

Still, he cautioned that not “everything dealt with in the fatwa is indicative of a relevant violation. It doesn’t mean father and son were necessarily sharing a girl. They’re at least being ‘warned’ not to. But I bet some of these violations were being committed.”

The fatwa also instructs owners of female slaves to “show compassion towards her, be kind to her, not humiliate her, and not assign her work she is unable to perform.” An owner should also not sell her to an individual whom he knows will mistreat her.

Professor Abdel Fattah Alawari, dean of Islamic Theology at Al-Azhar University, a 1,000-year-old Egyptian center for Islamic learning, said Islamic State “has nothing to do with Islam” and was deliberately misreading centuries-old verses and sayings that were originally designed to end, rather than encourage, slavery.

“Islam preaches freedom to slaves, not slavery. Slavery was the status quo when Islam came around,” he said. “Judaism, Christianity, Greek, Roman, and Persian civilizations all practiced it and took the females of their enemies as sex slaves. So Islam found this abhorrent practise and worked to gradually remove it.”

In September 2014 more than 120 Islamic scholars from around the world issued an open letter to IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi refuting the group’s religious arguments to justify many of its actions. The scholars noted that the “reintroduction of slavery is forbidden in Islam.”

Muslims justified raping “because the action would make them Muslim.”

According to Islamic law, 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)

The rape of captive women is also sanctioned in Islamic tradition:

Abu Sirma said to Abu Sa’id al Khadri (Allah he pleased with him): O Abu Sa’id, did you hear Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) mentioning al-’azl? He said: Yes, and added: We went out with Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) on the expedition to the Bi’l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women; and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them.

So we decided to have sexual intercourse with them but by observing ‘azl (Withdrawing the male sexual organ before emission of semen to avoid conception). But we said: We are doing an act whereas Allah’s Messenger is amongst us; why not ask him? So we asked Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him), and he said: It does not matter if you do not do it, for every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born. (Muslim 3371)
