Iraqi Ayatollah: Muslims can lend slave girls to friends to prevent marital problems. Robert Spencer quotes Iraqi Ayatollah Al-Haeri:
…it would be permissible to take five or ten slave girls from among those who oppose the imam, and to offer them to friends for sex, when they come over. Al-Haeri recommended this as a means to prevent marital problems…
Islam is forever rooted in seventh century Arab culture because the Koran (Qur’an) is the unchallengeable word of God, dictated to Mohammed by the archangel Gabriel and not open to later re-interpretation.
Islamic apologists in the West have assured us that the sex slavery practiced by Boko Haram (the Islamic State in West Africa) and the Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam. Ayatollah Abdul Karim Al-Haeri begs to differ. How did he get this ridiculous and Islamophobic idea? From reading the Qur’an: the seizure of Infidel girls and their use as sex slaves is sanctioned in the Qur’an. … The rape of captive women is also sanctioned in Islamic tradition.
It is also in Islamic law: “When a child or a woman is taken captive, they become slaves by the fact of capture, and the woman’s previous marriage is immediately annulled.”
The Egyptian Sheikh Abu-Ishaq al-Huwayni declared in May 2011 that “we are in the era of jihad,” and that meant Muslims would take slaves. In a subsequent interview he elaborated: “Spoils, slaves, and prisoners are only to be taken in war between Muslims and infidels. Muslims in the past conquered, invaded, and took over countries. … The prisoners and spoils are distributed among the fighters, which includes men, women, children, wealth, and so on. When a slave market is erected, which is a market in which are sold slaves and sex-slaves, which are called in the Qur’an by the name milk al-yamin, “that which your right hands possess”. … sex-slaves. You go to the market, look at the sex-slave, and buy her…. All scholars agree on this point—there is no disagreement from any of them. […] When I want a sex slave, I just go to the market and choose the woman I like and purchase her.
The savage exploitation of girls and young women is, unfortunately, a cross-cultural phenomenon, but only in Islamic law does it carry divine sanction.
