Yasir Qadhi on sex-slaves in Islam

Yasir Qadhi seems to admit that taking sex slaves as a result of war by early Muslims was permissible.  He admits that this is controversial in Islam and that he gets lots of questions about this issue.  The issue is mentioned in the Qur’an and the Hadith.  The Qur’an refers to it as the woman captives of war, “that your right hand possesses”.    look at all the verses in both the Qur’an and Hadith that mention this.  The details are very graphic (and almost pornographic), more so in the Hadith than in the Qur’an.  If I understand him correctly, he even says that most of the people of the Abbasids (the people of the Abbasid Caliphate era in Iraq), and Ottomans (Uthmaniyeh) – I think this is what he means; they were children from the taking of the wives who were conquered.   I remember several Iranian former Muslims admitting to me that, going all the way back to the Arab invasions of Persia (636 AD to 900s AD), his ancestors were probably the offspring of a Persian woman who was captured by the conquering Arabs. Many Iranians admit to being half or 1/4 Turkic in their ethnicity.  The Turks also did lots of Jihads when they came from Central Asia. (Seljuks, later Ottomans, etc.)   It seems that in the early Islamic Jihads and wars, the men were killed and the women were taken captive and they had many children from these captured women, and the result was massive changes in the ethnic make-up of the peoples of lands that Muslims conquered.

About Ken Temple

I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I am a sinner who has been saved by the grace of God alone (Ephesians 2:8-9), through faith alone (Galatians 2:16; Romans 3:28; 4:1-16), in Christ alone (John 14:6). But a true faith does not stay alone, it should result in change, fruit, good works, and deeper levels of repentance and hatred of my own sins of selfishness and pride. I am not better than you! I still make mistakes and sin, but the Lord is working on me, conforming me to His character. (Romans 8:28-29; 2 Corinthians 3:16-18) When I do sin, I hate the sin as it is an affront to God, and seek His forgiveness in repentance. (Mark 1:15; 2 Corinthians 7:7-10; Colossians 3:5-16 ) Praise God for His love for sinners (Romans 5:8), shown by the voluntary coming of Christ and His freely laying down His life for us (John 10:18), becoming flesh/human (John 1:1-5; 1:14; Philippians 2:5-8), dying for sins of people from all nations, tribes, and cultures (Revelation 5:9), on the cross, in history, rising from the dead (Romans 10:9-10; Matthew 28, Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24; John 20-21; 1 Corinthians chapter 15). His resurrection from the dead proved that Jesus is the Messiah, the eternal Son of God, the word of God from eternity past; and that He was all the gospels say He was and that He is truth and the life and the way to salvation. (John 14:6)

  1. Jesus doesn’t love pagans says:

    Did you hear about one of your fellows in the religion of love stabbed Shaykh Uthman in San Diego? How much does it bother you that you’ve been preaching the religion of love longer than he has been alive and yet you haven’t had the same affect that he has in one weekend?

    • Ken Temple says:

      That guy is not a Christian. What evidence do you have that demonstrates that guy was a Christian?

      “you will know them by their fruits” Jesus – see Matthew 7:15-20 and Matthew 3:8 and Acts 26:20

  2. Religion of Love says:

    Another attack by the Religion of Love.

    I can’t wait to see you making a video condemning this and praising how brave Shaykh Uthman is.

    • Ken Temple says:

      That guy is not a Christian. Yes, I condemn him. His language and action demonstrates he is not a true Christian. You cannot blame Jesus Christ عیسی المسیح or Christianity on the actions of individual people.
      By contrast, it is your prophet that gave the commands to fight and kill and do Jihad and conquer and take women as sex-slaves, which Yasir Qadhi admitted.
      The Qur’an and Hadith collections are filled with those commands to subjugate everyone, and impose Sharia Islamic law everywhere.
