Muslim Woman Seeks to Revive Institution of Sex-Slavery

Raymond Ibrahim is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, a Judith Friedman Rosen Writing Fellow at the Middle East Forum and a CBN News contributor. He is the author of Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians (2013) and The Al Qaeda Reader (2007). 


Last week witnessed popular Muslim preacher Abu Ishaq al-Huwaini boast about how Islam allows Muslims to buy and sell conquered infidel women, so that “When I want a sex-slave, I go to the market and pick whichever female I desire and buy her.”

This week’s depraved anachronism comes from a Muslim woman—Salwa al-Mutairi, a political activist and former parliamentary candidate for Kuwait’s government, no less: She, too, seeks to “revive the institution of sex-slavery.”

A brief English report appeared over the weekend in the Kuwait Times (nothing, of course, in the MSM):

Muslim men who fear being seduced or tempted into immoral behavior by the beauty of their female servants, or even of those servants “casting spells” on them, would be better to purchase women from an “enslaved maid” agency for sexual purposes. She [Mutairi] suggested that special offices could be set up to provide concubines in the same way as domestic staff recruitment agencies currently provide housemaids. “We want our youth to be protected from adultery,” said al-Mutairi, suggesting that these maids could be brought as prisoners of war in war-stricken nations like Chechnya to be sold on later to devout merchants.

The Arabic news website, Al Arabiya, has the sordid details, including a video of Mutairi addressing this topic. I summarize and translate various excerpts below (note: I am not making any of this up):

The Kuwaiti female activist begins by insisting that “it’s of course true” that “the prophet of Islam legitimized sex-slavery.” She recounts how when she was in Mecca, Islam’s holiest city, she asked various sheikhs and muftis (learned, authoritative Muslims) about the legality of sex-slavery according to Sharia: they all confirmed it to be perfectly legal; Kuwaiti ulema further pointed out that extra “virile” men—Western synonyms include “sex-crazed,” “lecherous,” “perverted”—would do well to purchase sex-slaves to sate their appetites without sinning.

Here’s a particularly interesting excerpt from her taped speech on the rules governing sex-slaves:

A Muslim state must [first] attack a Christian state—sorry, I mean any non-Muslim state—and they [the women, the future sex-slaves] must be captives of the raid. Is this forbidden? Not at all; according to Islam, sex slaves are not at all forbidden. Quite the contrary, the rules regulating sex-slaves differ from those for free women [i.e., Muslim women]: the latter’s body must be covered entirely, except for her face and hands, whereas the sex-slave is kept naked from the bellybutton on up—she is different from the free woman; the free woman has to be married properly to her husband, but the sex-slave—he just buys her and that’s that.

She went on to offer concrete suggestions: “For example, in the Chechnyan war, surely there are female Russian captives. So go and buy those and sell them here in Kuwait; better that than have our men engage in forbidden sexual relations. I don’t see any problem in this, no problem at all.”

Mutairi suggests the enslaved girls be at least 15 years-old.

She further justified the institution of sex-slavery by evoking 8th century caliph, Harun Rashid—a name some may recall from Arabian Nights bedtime stories; a name some may be surprised to discover politically active Muslims modeling their lives after:

“And the greatest example we have is Harun al-Rashid: when he died, he had 2,000 sex slaves—so it’s okay, nothing wrong with it.”

Mutairi’s rationale is ultimately guided by a sense of efficiency, a desire for the good of society: legalizing sex-slaves helps prevent Muslim men from transgressing Allah’s laws (as we have seen, extramarital relations with fellow Muslim women is strictly forbidden, but not with infidel sex-slaves, since they are scarcely considered human). Thus, the institution of sex-slavery provides a convenient, Sharia-compliant way of satiating the libidinous urges of Muslim men.

The Kuwaiti activist’s blunt approach also has universal parallels. For example, in the West, some seek to legalize marijuana, arguing that, since people use it anyway, let it be made compliant with the law. In the Muslim world, we have those who seek to legalize sex-slavery, arguing that, since Muslim men will use women anyway, let it be made compliant with Sharia law.

Such are the inevitable differences between the Western mindset (based on reason and universal rights) and the Sharia mindset (based on the life of a 7th century Arabian caravan-raider and slave-trader).

Mutairi concluded by piously supplicating Allah: “Oh I truly wish this for Kuwait, Allah willing—Oh Lord, Lord, you are bountiful…”

While she waits, Mutairi can take solace in the fact that, if sex-slavery is not institutionalized in Kuwait, it thrives underground throughout the Muslim world, where non-Muslim girls—mostly Christians—are routinely abducted, enslaved, and forced into lives of unspeakable degradation.

After all, just because a practice is not formally institutionalized does not mean that those who deem it their divine right are not practicing it.

      Its like poligamy here in the states. How do you talk women into accepting this? Really strange "religion" this islam.

  • laheretique

    If you want a laugh, see how Al Arabiya is trying to pretend that female sex slaves aren't allowed in Islam (Mohammed owned a bunch, and the Hadiths are very clear about him raping war captives and allowing his men to do the same. Taqqiya in full flow (as the article is in English, I'm assuming it's meant for infidel consumption).

    I suggest we send in some traffickers to abduct and sell her to see how she likes being raped by a fat old man. After a year she might be significantly less pro slavery.

    Although I can't see many men being willing to hand over cash for her.

    • davarino

      I would pay her to clean my house, then she has to go home.

  • Tanstaafl

    Didn't we fight a war in this country to free people from slavery?

  • kafir4life

    There's a reason that muslim women must be kept covered from head to toe. You ever see one uncovered? Oh My!!! No wonder sometimes the men like to wear them too! In many instances, if just looking at the face, you can't tell the females from the males!!
    Now forgive my ignorance, but isn't islam that gutter cult that was invented by a madman rapist named mohamat who during a bout of intestinal distress following sex with and a meal of a pig (an incestuous relationship?) shat the contents of what muslims call the most noble koran, that the rest of the world calls feces?
    That them?

    Less ‘Rape Cases’ less ‘Sexual Assaults etc

    A very valid point, less ‘Rape Cases’ less ‘Sexual Assaults; But Slaves ‘NO’ way. Only legitimate consensual contracts. Women are not Sex objects to be abused they must be respected even if they perform a service. Such should be on the NHS in the UK after all it is for relaxation and medicinal purposes is it not?

    A good article, Until you compared "sex-slave trade" to legalizing marijuana….Last time I checked Marijuana didn't have any human rights……It's just a product, like alcohol….

    • MKL

      Look at the paragraph following the marijuana one and you'll see that Ibrahim was being sarcastic, since he describes the Western mindset which allows marijuana as based on "reason" and the Muslim mindset based on an Arab savage…

  • Celestine

    We in the West ought to stop referring to Islam as a religion. What kind of religion enlists the Almighty in sexual and other forms of slavery, terrorist jihadi attacks on innocent "infidels", systematized mistreatment of women, and the destruction of churches? Allah loves me because I have just killed dozens of infidel women and children, and captured and kept a few of them for sex slaves. When my two wives objected, I beat them into submission as Allah permits. Later, I'll sell the slave children, a donkey or two, and perhaps one of the wives to the fat pervert down the street. Allah be praised, I am a pious man. Religion? Not hardly. Islam is nothing more than a covenant among men to do evil.

        Correction, part II;

        There is a reason we had to fight a war to end chattel slavery.

  • Jaladhi

    I wonder how this POS would like to become a sex slave herself to satisfy all those Moscums!!!

  • LindaRivera

    Islam has no concept of a Holy G-D. The world's non-Muslim innocents are regarded as prey. It is horrifying that people with such cruel and inhuman beliefs towards their fellow human beings have been taken into Western countries by hundreds of millions. A massive Muslim immigration invasion. G-D help and protect all non-Muslims.

  • LindaRivera

    G-D's Biblical requirement for all humanity is KINDNESS:

    Bible, Micah 6:8 And what does the L-RD require of you but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your G-D.

  • Marty

    It's very helpful that islamic degenerates remind us of how barbaric their ideology is and what sort of freaks they use as role models. As dhimmis we all need to understand that our very humanity is never assumed in islam. muslims are supremacists, religious bigots, racists, and sexists. They demonstrate all of this whenever they open their filthy mouths.

  • alan

    I think it would be better for horny muslim men to take sheep and goats as sex objects as Kohmeini has given instructions for. However, after using the sheep or goat it is necessary to kill the animal. But this combination of sex and violence should appeal to muslim males!

    • bob

      They can have goat kebabs after the sex, lol.

  • BLJ

    If this beast represents the typical muslim woman then I see no market for Viagra in that part of the world. Egads!

    • clancop

      Agreed, but you're missing something. Aside from attractive sex slaves they kidnap and brutalize because they are actually attractive and the barbarians would have no chance with them otherwise, you forgot the little children, both girls and boys (Qur'an 52:24 – And round them shall go boys of theirs as if they were hidden pearls), and a variety of animals like goats and sheep. Being the sexual deviants they are, Viagra-type drugs are imported and sold at a premium to keep these sexual deviants going.

      The question is who would want to be a Muslim knowing all this? Disgusting nonsense… http://clancop.wordpress.com/

    Sex Slavery in Saudi Arabia? May be a more realistic and practical reason for thier extreme prejudice and police practices regarding women being out in public or operating motor vehicles.

  • Speaker of truth

    This article shines the the light on the true face of Islam. No one should be surprised at all by this article. Disgusted perversion – all Westerners should understand their system for what it is.

  • Rifleman

    She's just hoping he'll beat the infidel sex slave when he's mad instead of her.

    This is sick in so many ways.

  • bombshelterbob

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Islam is a fundamental evil in this world and we will enter a new and hideous dark age if we don't stop them now!

  • WilliamJamesWard

    Was George Bush referring to Islam as a religion of peace or piece, he was known
    to mix up words on occasion. It seems we all know it is not a religion, not a
    peaceful persuasion but is out for a piece of slave erotica, how nasty.

    When the western world wakes up will it be to late and our daughters, and
    sisters and mothers are all slaves to some degenerate Abdulah? No wonder
    the West has always gone to war with these barbarians, times may change
    but not these people, recurring evil, generational but doomed, some day and
    soon I hope…………………………………………………………………..William

    Islam is a political system. Similar to Nazism, and Communism in its absolutism, oppression and subjugation of others.

  • Malcolm

    When I was touring through Jordan in 1980, one of our party announced: "I could have sold Jan." Jan was a pretty blond New Zealander. Apparently, some Arab had asked about purchasing some of our girls, particularly Jan, for whom he would have been prepared to pay (if I remember properly) $3000. He gave up when told she was married.
    When I told this story to another traveller, he recounted how, in Algeria, he was offered $6,000 for a particularly beautiful woman with whom he was travelling. The prospective buyer said that, because she was so beautiful, once he had finished with her, he could sell her to someone else, and she would eventually have been passed down the line until she ended up with the Touareqs in the central Sahara.

    [Here's what I saw while webbing!]

    A TRANSGENDER SPIN-OFF

    I'm a little kid and I feel that inside of me there is a real adult.
    Yes, I have what you could say is an "adult identity." I know I was born an adult because I never did choose to be an adult.
    Since I'm really, really an adult deep down inside, why is it I'm not allowed to go to "adult only" places and act like adults?
    I mean, kids in Palestine can carry adult guns. Kids in other Muslim places can cut off heads in videos. And kids in San Francisco can watch gays having sex in public, so why can't "adult" kids like me act like those adults?
    If a man can be the "woman" inside of him, and if a woman can be the "man" she says is inside of her, I demand to live out the "adult identity" that I know is really, really inside of me!
    Since a cat may think he's the "mouse" inside of him, and since our "Christian" President can be the "Muslim" inside of him, I demand the right to be the transbeing adult that was inside of me even before I was born!

    WTF, hey, this is hillarious, but completely predictable. But where are the hordes of rabid western feminists,you know, the lot that blames everything on this planet on the western man from bad weather to mathematical books ? Revelling in these statement, I bet, taking whips and other S/M paraphernalia out of closets. And I thought women are divine, innocent and submissive creatures!

  • dr.music

    Slowly and surely the whole planet is waking up to the fact that muslim or Pure muslim is a term for a very very evil person.
    "Women should be exposed to the day light three times in their lives. When they are born, when they are married and when they die." – islamic saying.
    "Our mullah told us that when we carried out our suicide attacks, all the people around us would die, but we would stay alive"
    If muslims could leave islam without being extinguished by other muslims how many muslims would be left on the planet ? Answer : Zero or none. It is only the threat to one's life that keeps islam evil and populated. These scared muslim slaves of invented allah are doomed forever in the dead hands of the madman who invented allah and brought a curse on everything and everyone islam touches. Islam haram. Repeat after me …islam is not halal , islam is haram. Understand?

    • dr.music

      Islam is the problem. Islam has to be abolished. As long as even one human is a muslim this planet will never see peace. Take my word for it.
      Islam is the problem. Islam makes people evil. This is a fact. Evil people are a big drain to our planet’s resources like a raging fire. For our planet’s limited resources and our safety we should extinguish each and every fire once we have identified it as evil. Feeding a fire is suicide and not good for our planet’s resources.
      So in the end what will happen to islam? Will islam just vanish? Islam has to be abolished.

        "They said nothing's better than paradise and you can earn that by extinguishing non-believers."
        "They prayed all the time and read the koran so i thought they were good people."

        So When will muslims be allowed to realise that islam is haram ?

        And how will they realise that islam is haram?

        Only when the SUPREME COURTS start questioning the demented koran loudly and in full hearing of the planet will muslims see mohammad’s mad trip. The answer is in and by our SUPREME COURTS in the very end.

    I would say that she should get that treatment to see how she likes being a sex slave but she is so ugly it is unbelievable. There’s no way any man from any country would want her except maybe if she had a bag on her head. I think this garbage is from envy of beautiful women.

    Slavery is what holds back the progress of mankind. Where ever slavery thrives technology and science lags.

  • leonardo

    The bible says that the man must fulfil his marital obligations to the wife and vice versa.
    That means there is an obligation to satisfy your husband and he must satisfy his wife.
    If the wife witholds sex, then she is not the helper of her husband. The scripture says that women are the helpers of men. When women frustrate men, which they are doing more and more in the west, then you will see an increase in sex slavery and a rise in global prostitution and sex tourism to asia.

  • Milly

    You will find that the more religious a man becomes, the more he will experience sexual frustration._This is because Satan seeks to frustrate that man. Now what better glee and joy is it for evil to make a man suffer sexually when his zeal for God intensifies. Why do you think so many born-again preachers are involved with prostitutes and exposed in scandals? If a man's partner is not satisfying him for a number of reasons or tries to frustrate him, there are usually libido differences and each frustrates the other to control the relationship. The scripture says clearly that women were made to be helpers of men._If a woman is not "helping" her man, then either the problem is resolved through counselling, or a replacement must be found for the man. Why do you think there is so much male violence in countries with a high degree of religious indoctrination? Because sexual frustration eventually enrages men and makes them violent. Why do you think women get battered in marriages?_So if you have a sex slave, take care of her, feed her, educate her, support her financially, how is that so much different to a modern marriage which the bible defines as a relationship where the wife is the man's property and he is her property?
