Today I want to look at what might be the beginning of the end for ISIS. We will also look at big news coming out of Nigeria. Remember the 270 that were kidnapped by Boko Haram. Some of them have been released. We will also look at what Islam teaches about sex slaves. Is this just something that a few extremists are doing, or is this what the Prophet, Muhammad taught?
Why am I saying it could be the beginning of the end for ISIS? The assault on Mosel is finally under way. It will take some time because this is a big city and ISIS is well dug in.
Dabiq has not been in the news like it should be, but Turkish backed forces have taken this city. This is important to ISIS because their propaganda magazine is called Dabiq. It is named after this city and ISIS no longer has this city under its control.
The point is that ISIS is in retreat. They are loosing ground and control. This is why I am saying this could be the beginning of the end for ISIS. We can only hope and pray that it is. Let’s pray especially for our troops that are involved. Obama says they are not in combat, but we know they are in harm’s way.
Now I want to go to Nigeria where Boko Haram, whose name means western ways are forbidden, had captured more than 270 young girls over two and a half hears ago. One of the western ways that is forbidden is putting girls in school and giving them an education. Someone who is educated is dangerous to Islam because they ask questions. They can read, and they can see problems that are in the Qur’an and in the teachings of Islam. About two thirds of the Muslim world cannot read or write. Even most of those who can read and write, practice a religion in a language they don’t speak. Most Muslims are not Arabs, and they don’t speak Arabic. Only about 15% of the Muslims in the world are Arabs. Most of them are from Asia, with Indonesia being the largest Muslim country, Next are Pakistan and India. Reading the Qur’an in Arabic is another way of keeping people ignorant.
Let’s get back to the subject of these girls. Just yesterday 21 of them were released. Some have escaped also. BBC believes that there are about 87 of the girls still being held by Boko Haram. Other news sources say that there are 200 of them that we don’t know about. We can praise God that these few were released.
The sad part is that, while they were captives, terrible things happened to them. We need to understand, that within Islam, if Muhammad did it and if you are a faithful Muslim, you will follow his example. If Muhammad had sex with children, you have sex with children. If Muhammad killed the unbelievers, you kill the unbelievers. Whatever he did, you do.
Let be give you the Islamic scriptures on this subject. This is what Muhammad taught in the Sunna. It is from my book Refuting Islam.
The Muslim practice of Al Sabi
Al sabi is the doctrine of enslaving women for the purpose of sex for the Muslim fighters. The UN released a report from their Sexual Violence division concerning Syria. The report included testimony of girls who were able to escape ISIS. The report told the story of a nine year old girl who was sexually abused by at least ten ISIS fighters and became pregnant. There was also a nineteen year old who told of the horrors she witnessed. When ISIS came to her village, the men were given the choice to convert to Islam or be shot. The girls and the young women were separated and sold as sex slaves. They were taken to a building in Mosel which she described as a sex slave warehouse where hundreds of women and girls were held. They would line up about fifty of them in lines of ten and were told, “don’t move, don’t cry, or we will beat you.” Men would enter to pick and choose as they pleased. She and a few other girls managed to escape that night.[i]
ISIS publishes a glossy online magazine called Dabiq. In the 9th Edition they carried an article entitled “Slave-Girls or Prostitutes?” by Umm Sumayyah Al-Muhajirah. Starting on page forty-four, the article outlined the justification from Islamic scriptures for the practice of sex slaves. Here is a brief synopsis of her argument, which is evidence we can quote to show the wickedness of Islam. The first authority quoted is the Qur’an:
And they who guard their private parts, except from their wives or those their right hands possess, for indeed, they will not be blamed}
The phrase “those their right hands possess” means they are slaves. This verse says that it is righteous to protect your private parts from all except two groups of people: your wives and your slaves. This is because you can have sex with both your wives and your slaves.
The next authority quoted is from the Sunnah.
Sa’īd Ibn Jubayr reported that Ibn ‘Abbās (radiyallāhu ‘anhumā) said, ‘Approaching any married woman is fornication, except for a woman who has been enslaved’”
An unbelieving woman’s marriage is invalidated when she becomes a captive and is enslaved. It is, therefore, not fornication to have sex with her.
Now she quotes from the Sirat:
The Sīrah is a witness to our Prophet’s raiding of the kuffār. He would kill their men and enslave their children and women. The raids of the beloved Prophet convey this to us. Ask the tribes of Banī al-Mustaliq, Banī Quraydhah, and Hawāzin about this. The tribes spoken of here are the Jewish tribes betrayed by Muhammad. He beheaded the men and took the women and girls as sex slaves. This is called the Battle of the Trench.
Banī Quraydhah yielded to the judgment of Sa’d Ibn Mu’ādh. So Sa’d said, “I rule that their fighters be killed and their families be enslaved.” So Allah’s Messenger said, “You have indeed judged in their affair by the ruling of Allah” [Reported by al-Bukhārī and Muslim]
Here is another incident from the Sirat:
The number of Jews killed in the battles of Khaybar reached 93 men. Their women and children were enslaved, and Safiyyah Bint Huyayy Ibn Akhtab – the Mother of the Believers – fell into captivity. Allah’s Messenger set her free and married her [Reported by al-Bukhārī and Muslim]. And during the expedition of Hunayn, Allah’s Messenger enslaved from Hawāzin until the amount of slaves reached six thousand.
This is the final selection from the Sirat:
Therefore, we almost cannot find a companion who didn’t practice saby. ‘Alī Ibn Abī Tālib had nineteen slave-girls. Ibn ‘Uyaynah reported that ‘Amr Ibn Dīnār said, “’Alī Ibn Abī Tālib wrote in his will, ‘As to what follows: If something happens to me during this battle, then my slave-girls whom I copulate with are nineteen in number. Some of them bore me children, some of them are pregnant, and some of them are childless’”
In short, all of Muhammad’s companions practiced al-sabi.
Muslims still practice slavery today in Africa, but it has been renamed for political correctness. Titles like “human trafficking” or “forced labor” are the new terms journalists use to speak about slavery. TheWorld Alliance Against Forced Labor estimates that there are over six hundred thousand victims of slave labor in the Sub-Saharan region of Africa. Kira Salak, a writer for the National Geographic, showed that slavery is still going strong in Mali (ninety percent Muslim) when she bought two slaves and then freed them in Timbuktu.[ii] In May of 2015, the BBC World Service posted that four percent of the population of Mauritania (all Muslim) are enslaved placing it at the top of the Global Slavery Index.[iii] You don’t have to dig too deep to find that slavery is still practiced widely by Muslims.
Let’s ask those skeptics who sit on the fence about Islam if they support slavery. If you support Islam, you support slavery. Let’s ask them if they support taking freedom away from others. Ask them if they want slavery practiced or freedom taken away from them in their community.
We also need to understand that the girls who had been captured were virgins, making them a real prize.
Let’s get the word out and expose Islam for the false religion that it is. Muhammad used his god,
Allah, as a sock puppet to get his followers to do what he wanted them to do. Muhammad was less interested in his religion than he was in building his empire. Islam still has the same goal today.
