This shouldn’t surprise anyone. The seizure of Infidel girls and their use as sex slaves is sanctioned in the Qur’an. According to Islamic law, Muslim men can take “captives of the right hand” (Qur’an 4:3, 4:24, 33:50). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful to you your wives unto whom you have paid their dowries, and those who your right hand possesses of those whom Allah has given you as spoils of war” (33:50). 4:3 and 4:24 extend this privilege to Muslim men in general. The Qur’an says that a man may have sex with his wives and with these slave girls: “The believers must (eventually) win through, those who humble themselves in their prayers; who avoid vain talk; who are active in deeds of charity; who abstain from sex, except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or (the captives) whom their right hands possess, for (in their case) they are free from blame.” (Qur’an 23:1-6)
As for stoning, the caliph Umar, one of Muhammad’s closest companions, even maintained that it was originally in the Qur’an:
‘Umar said, “I am afraid that after a long time has passed, people may say, “We do not find the Verses of the Rajam (stoning to death) in the Holy Book,” and consequently they may go astray by leaving an obligation that Allah has revealed. Lo! I confirm that the penalty of Rajam be inflicted on him who commits illegal sexual intercourse, if he is already married and the crime is proved by witnesses or pregnancy or confession.” Sufyan added, “I have memorized this narration in this way.” ‘Umar added, “Surely Allah’s Apostle carried out the penalty of Rajam, and so did we after him.” (Bukhari 8.82.816)
“Allah’s Apostle” is, of course, Muhammad, who did indeed carry out stonings. Here is the hadith in which he challenges the rabbis about stoning, and in which there is amidst the barbarism and brutality a final act of love and compassion:
The Jews came to Allah’s Apostle and told him that a man and a woman from amongst them had committed illegal sexual intercourse. Allah’s Apostle said to them, “What do you find in the Torah (old Testament) about the legal punishment of Ar-Rajm (stoning)?” They replied, (But) we announce their crime and lash them.” Abdullah bin Salam said, “You are telling a lie; Torah contains the order of Rajm.” They brought and opened the Torah and one of them solaced his hand on the Verse of Rajm and read the verses preceding and following it. Abdullah bin Salam said to him, “Lift your hand.” When he lifted his hand, the Verse of Rajm was written there. They said, “Muhammad has told the truth; the Torah has the Verse of Rajm. The Prophet then gave the order that both of them should be stoned to death. (‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar said, “I saw the man leaning over the woman to shelter her from the stones.” (Bukhari 4.56.829)
Even the monkeys practiced stoning, according to another hadith:
During the pre-lslamic period of ignorance I saw a she-monkey surrounded by a number of monkeys. They were all stoning it, because it had committed illegal sexual intercourse. I too, stoned it along with them. (Bukhari 5.58.188)
Muhammad’s example is, of course, normative for Islamic behavior, since “verily in the messenger of Allah you have a good example for him who looks to Allah and the Last Day, and remembers Allah much” (Qur’an 33:21).
“Book condoning sex-slaves, stoning handed out at Ontario Islamic Heritage Month event,” by Jonathan D. Halevi, CIJ News, November 7, 2016:
The first Ontario Islamic Heritage Month was celebrated on October 29, 2016 also at Jam’e Abu Bakr Siddique Masjid, a Sunni mosque located at 2665 Lawrence Ave. East in Toronto.
The mosque opened its doors to non-Muslims to learn about the true Islam from Islamic literature that was given away, by listening to speeches of Muslim imams and activists, participating in a Q&A session and a tour of the mosque.
The guest speaker at the event was Liberal MP Salma Zahid who said that Canada and Islam share the same basic value of equality that “makes is true Canadian.” She expressed her hope that such events will help young Muslim Canadians to learn about their religion and culture.
The following are excerpts from Salma Zahid’s speech (to listen to the speech click HERE):
“Equality for all is a basic tenet of Islam and it also makes us true Canadian…
“As the Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that we are stronger not in spite of our differences but because of our differences…
“It is an honor to come here and enjoy and celebrate the Islamic Heritage Month…
“Please preserve the heritage, preserve the Canadian values and be a part of society. Happy Islamic Month to all of you…
“This is very very important not only to us, but to our future generation, for our kids and grand-kids. They’ll get to know what their religion is, what their culture is and how the Muslim Canadians are contributing to the social – economic fabric of this country.”
CIJnews obtained a copy of a book “The Quran” (Saheeh International) that was given away in the event. This is the same book that is being handed out by Muslim activists at the Islamic booth at Toronto’s Dundas Square.
The book explains the Islamic Law based on the Quran and Sunnah (narrations about Mohammad’s sayings and deeds) regarding the fighting (jihad) against disbelievers, enforcing a poll-tax on Jews and Christians who live under the rule of the Islamic State, legalizing taking non-Muslims women as sex-slaves during war, wife beating under certain conditions, punishing those of wage war against Islam by execution, crucifixion and amputation, regarding sodomy as an “evil” act, executing married men and women who were convicted of fornication by stoning them to death….
