Shocking, “It is permissible to buy, sell or give as a gift female captives and slaves, for they are merely property.” says ISIS
People in Mosul, the Iraqi city now under control of the group calling itself the Islamic State , were handed a color-printed pamphlet titled “Question and Answers on Female Slaves and their Freedom,”
The pamphlet contained questions and answers on how non- Muslim girls and women captured as slaves should be treated and the militants have justified their actions to be in God’s name. In the document, for instance, it is explained that capturing women is permissible if they are “non-believers.” It adds, “Female slaves are the women that Muslims took from their enemies.”
Much of the pamphlet talks about ISIS’ policy on having sexual intercourse with a female slave, something that the group cites the Quran to justify.
Can you take non-Muslim women and children captive? Yes, says ISIS, young and old, the captors have full control of their captives.
Can you have sex with them, even prepubescent girls? Yes, according to the extremist group. “It is permissible to have intercourse with the female slave who hasn’t reached puberty if she is fit for intercourse,” the document reads. “However, if she is not fit for intercourse, he (the owner) can only enjoy her without intercourse.”
Can you sell them or give them as gifts to others? The answer is yes, once again, the ISIS document claims, “It is permissible to buy, sell or give as a gift female captives and slaves, for they are merely property.”
“If she was a virgin, he (the owner) can have intercourse with her immediately after the ownership is fulfilled,” ISIS explains. “If she was not a virgin, her uterus must be purified (wait for her period to be sure she is not pregnant.)”
In this document, the group cites the Quran and the Sharia law as the basis of their rules, however, most Muslim leaders and the world continue to condemn ISIS and find its alien interpretation of Islam and Sharia law grotesque and abhorrent.
