I put an NPOV on this because we need context, exegesis and Muslim teaching. Modern Muslims don't tend to accept slavery and that should also be explained and sourced. It's also a very touchy issue if you are (were) allowed to have sex with your slaves and we should discuss this fairly. So, this needs some work. gren 21:00, 17 May 2005 (UTC)
- Each of the three Abrahamic religions has practiced slavery. And adherents have slaughtered their enemies. I'd rather not use Wikipedia as a forum to debate which of the three can claim the moral high ground.
- What would any of us do with that high ground, anyway? Fire artillery down on the other two groups, I guess. How that's going to solve anything is beyond me. -- Uncle Ed (talk) 23:13, May 24, 2005 (UTC)
How about adding the reference that slaves who demand freedom should be given the money with which to buy their freedom? (Sura 2 Verse 177).
