Islamic slavery thread:
1. Yes, before the libtards get upset, Islam DOES allow slavery.

Narrated Jabir:

"The Prophet bought a slave for two slaves."

(Sunan Abi Dawud 3358)
2. However, this slavery is different from other kinds of slavery throughout history. When we think of slavery, we typically think of the Transatlantic Slave Trade and people being treated horribly and sent to colony plantations where they would spend the rest of their loves.
3. In Islamic slavery, a slave cannot be castrated or abused in such a way.
It was narrated from Salamah bin Rawh bin Zinba', that his grandfather came to the Prophet (ﷺ) and he had castrated a slave of his. The Prophet (ﷺ) manumitted the slave in compensation for having been mutilated.

(Sunan Ibn Majah 2679)
Such an act is banned by the Shari'ah.

However, those who object will typically reference the Ottoman Empire's castration of slaves.

Again, what an Empire does is not Hujjah in the Shari'ah.

The Ottomans were wrong to have done such a thing as per the Shari'ah.
4. In Islamic slavery, a slave cannot be killed. However, in Western slavery, a slave could be killed and nothing would happen to their master.
The punishment under the Hanafi school for murdering a slave is death.

Under the other schools, the punishment is to pay blood money for the murder of the slave.
5. Slaves must be treated well by their masters in Islam. Under Western slavery, this was not the case at all.
Jabir ibn 'Abdullah said, "The Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, advised that slaves should be well-treated. He said, 'Feed them from what you eat and clothe them from what you wear. Do not punish what Allah has created.'"

(Al-Adab Al-Mufrad 188)
6. Slaves must not be beaten in Islamic Law. Under Western slavery, a slave could be abused by their master in any way.

Guys, the biggest loser of all time has to be Zara Kay.
She claimed in a video that if a woman does adultery, she is to be stoned to death but when a man does it, he isn't punished.

She also claimed that a rapist is not punished in Islam for rape.
This thread will be disproving that.

Common Xian argument: "Ur Prophet wasn't sent to us and was only sent to the Arabs."

Here's that argument rendered worthless.
Xians typically quote this verse in support of their argument:

ومآ أرسلنا من رسول إلا بلسان قومهۦ ليبين لهم ۖ فيضل ٱلله من يشآء ويهدى من يشآء ۚ وهو ٱلْعزيز ٱلْحكيم

(سورة إبراهيم آية 4)
"And We did not send any messenger except [speaking] in the language of his people to state clearly for them, and Allah sends astray [thereby] whom He wills and guides whom He wills. And He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise."

"A group of atheists once approached the great Imām, Abū Ḥanīfa with theintention of killing him. The Imām asked them what they would say about a person who claims that he has seen a ship laden with goods sailing on the sea transporting the goods from one shore to another.
The goods are piled onto the ship automatically and are similarly off-loaded by themselves upon reaching their destination. The ship navigates the waves perfectly all by itself with no sailor to steer it.
They replied that no sane human would accept such a nonsensical contention.

1) Just because everyone is doing it doesn't mean you should. If everyone was obese, would you want to be as well?

2) This is a hasty generalisation. Not all Muslims are the same. Plus, studies show the more practicing a person is, the less likely they will do such things.
3) Without critical thinking, you won't be able to evaluate what you do or act in a rational way. Plus, why are you slandering somebody with no evidence?

4) Nope. Immigrants aren't a threat. Immigrants generate money for a country. The stats disprove this ignorant claim.

Here's a tweet on Tawheed:
What is Tawheed?

Tawheed is the belief in Islam that God is one. Period. There is no God besides Allah the Exalted. Tawheed can be split up into three types:

- Tawheed al-Rububiyyah
- Tawheed al-Uluhiyyah
- Tawheed al-Asma wa al-Sifaat
Tawheed al-Rububiyyah means "The Oneness of Lordship".

There are many places where Allah affirms this Tawheed in the Quran, His Perfect Word:
