The Islamic doctrine of slavery is found in the Koran and the life-example of Mohammed. You must know the Islamic doctrine of slavery before you can understand slavery.
The modern historical theory of slavery is that white men brought Africans to the Western hemisphere, where they were sold for profit and put to work as slaves. This is true, but it does not go nearly far enough. Slavery begins way before the 300-year period when whites bought slaves from the Muslim wholesalers on the West coast of Africa.
For 1400 years Islam waged jihad in Africa, India and Europe and enslaved non-Muslims. Islam ran the slave markets, not only on the West coast of Africa, but in North and East Africa.
The foundation for this heinous business was the Islamic doctrine of slavery. Mohammed’s example established the way to be the ultimate slave trader and slave owner. He sold slaves he captured to finance jihad. Actually, Islam has a highly detailed doctrine of slavery.
This book is a fascinating study of the ideology that supported the world’s largest slave culture.
