It is against Islam to rape Muslim women, but Muhammad actually encouraged the rape of others captured in battle. This hadith provides the context for the Qur’anic verse (4:24):
The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) sent a military expedition to Awtas on the occasion of the battle of Hunain. They met their enemy and fought with them. They defeated them and took them captives.
Some of the Companions of the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) were reluctant to have intercourse with the female captives in the presence of their husbands who were unbelievers. So Allah, the Exalted, sent down the Qur’anic verse: (Sura 4:24) “And all married women (are forbidden) unto you save those (captives) whom your right hands possess.” (Abu Dawud 2150, also Muslim 3433)
ISIS make rape part of its religion: Fanatics claim that the Koran ‘condones and encourages’ attacking women if they are not Muslims
- Rape victim, 12, reveals attacker said what he was doing was not sinful
- He said it was because Yazidi girl practised a religion other than Islam
- More than 5,000 Yazidi women and girls were abducted last year by ISIS
- Its sex slavery system includes sales contracts endorsed by its courts
Islamic State has made rape a central part of its religious doctrine – with members told the Koran ‘condones and encourages’ attacking women if they are not Muslims, it was claimed today.
The chilling development came as a 12-year-old Yazidi rape victim in Iraq told how her attacker insisted that what he was doing was not sinful – because she practised a religion other than Islam.
Some 5,000 women and girls from the minority sect were abducted last year by ISIS, with the terror group organising a system of sex slavery including sales contracts endorsed by its notorious courts.
Rescued: Members of the minority Yazidi sect who were freed by Islamic State militants hug each other on the outskirts of Kirkuk in Iraq in April 2015, having been held captive since last summer (file picture)
The girl has since escaped to a refugee camp after 11 months in captivity – and spoke to New York Times journalist Rukmini Callimach, who interviewed 21 women and girls who had recently fled.
She said: ‘I kept telling him it hurts – please stop. He told me that according to Islam he is allowed to rape an unbeliever. He said that by raping me, he is drawing closer to God.’
NOTE: The Islamic State gives us a ringside seat to how Islam began and conquered non-Islamic peoples across the Arabian peninsula. Islam didn’t invent rape as booty of war, but it did in fact codify it into law.
