And all married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess...
. . . soldiers were reluctant to rape the captured women in front of their husbands. That is when Muhammad produced Kuran 4:24 assuring them that it was permissible to rape these captured women even in front of their husbands.
I READ QUITE a number of posts on the sexual use of slave-girls and captive women in Islam. It is quite amusing to note the desperation of a few 'Islam lovers' to save Islam from the stigma of abysmal sexual exploitation of slave-women and women-captives caught in a war. Here is what the 'real Islam' says about having sex with slave-girls and captives (women, of course). These passages are extracted from my detailed essays: 'Sex and Sexuality in Islam' and 'Root of Terrorism-Islamic Style.'
My question is: Who knows Islam best?-the Imams, the impeccably qualified (Islamically, of course), Mullahs, the Pirs, Tabari, Ghazali, Ibn Ishaq, Ibn Sa'd, Sahih Hadith, Hedaya (Hanafi Laws of Islam, vetted by the Inns of Law, London to be the most authentic), Umdat al-Salik (the most authentic Shafi Laws, authenticated by the Al-Azhar Islamic University) or the western educated, western-settled Muslims who claim they have discovered a new brand of Islam-Islam sans politics, and of late, Islam sans those obnoxious ahadith?
When we point out from those impeccable Islamic sources the true and unadulterated Islam preached and practiced by Muhammad, these New Islamic Scholars would quote from personalities such as: Gandhi, Carlyle, Barnard Shaw, John Esposito--..to demonstrate the 'beautiful' face of Islam. It is as if these kaffirs know Islam more/better than Muhammad did!
This gets very funny indeed! How about those despicable verses in the Qur'an which unmistakably demonstrate the utter sexual perversions, vis--vis slave-girls and captive women? Are these new Islamically educated, western-inclined Islamic scholars ready to discard those Qu'ranic verses as well? I would like to hear from them. This will really be very interesting, no doubt.
After attacking and looting the Jewish city of Khaibar, Mohammed compelled a beautiful and grieving teenage girl named Safiyah to become his sex-slave bride. At the time the captive was mute with shock and grief. According to the Moslem website http://www.islamonline.com/ (note, enter Safiyah in the search box to bring up the article) "… two women were brought before the prophet … they had passed by those … killed in the battle … The (one) who was mute with shock was Safiyah … whose husband (and other family members) had been killed ..."(by Mohammed’s followers). (Note: The parenthetical remarks were added by historian Dane Dahl to clarify the text.)
One of Mohammed’s bodyguards witnessed Mohammed raping the beautiful and grieving Safiyah. http://www.egyptsearch.com/forums/Forum10/HTML/000678.html "Ayyub al-Ansari (Mohammed’s bodyguard) guarded the tent of the prophet the whole night … (While Mohammed forced his lust upon his newest sex slave. The next morning Ayyub al-Ansari told Mohammed) 'I was afraid for you with this young lady. You killed her father, her husband and many of her relatives … I was really afraid for you on her account .'" (Note: The parenthetical remarks were added by historian Dane Dahl to clarify the text.)
Yet militant Moslem propaganda is hateful enough to boast this heart-broken sex slave grew to love Mohammed! According to the Moslem website: http://islamonline.com/cg-bin/news_service/profile_storyasp?service_id=1154 "She (Safiyah) was known for her extreme beauty … She did not only love Prophet … Mohammed deeply, but also greatly respected him as Allah’s Messenger … She was honored and given great respect in the Moslem community."
In the author's [Dane Dahl's] opinion, such boasting is cruel and ludicrous, especially when taken in the context of the historical record.
— In the history of the nations, Islam, a secretion of the Arab brain, has never been an element of civilization, but on the contrary has acted as an extinguisher upon its flickering light. Individuals under Arab rule have only been able to contribute to the advance of civilization in so far as they did not conform to Muslim dogma, but they relapsed into Arab barbarism as soon as they were obliged to make a complete submission to these dogmas.--Andre Servier, The Mind of the Musulman
