SHARIA DOES NOT ALLOW ENSLAVING OF YAZIDI WOMEN AND CHILDREN!

SHARIA, IN ISLAM, DOESN’T ALLOW ENSLAVING OF YAZIDI WOMEN AND CHILDREN.

THOSE WHO CITE SHARIA TO JUSTIFY ENSLAVING OF WOMEN and CHILDREN CAPTURED IN BATTLES OR WARS ARE ABSOLUTELY WRONG…!

The concept of allowing captured women and children to be distributed amongst victors was in vogue in the Arab lands in the Middle dark ages perhaps primarily to ensure the safety and dignity of those captured women and children whose husbands and fathers had lost their lives on the battlefield and as such had no males to look after them…!

Who would take care of widows and orphans of the opponents killed in the fight? The pious Muslims of Middle ages possibly thought that the best way out was to ask the victors to take care of such widows and orphans. But this was out of a sense of ‘RESPONSIBILITY’ as fine humane human beings and not out of the sense of widows and orphans being as ‘SPOILS’ of wars!

However, it seems this concept of RESPONSIBILITY described above degenerated into the concept of SPOILS. This concept of SPOILS is what has been used to wrongly justify enslavement of Yazidi women and children captured by Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant [ISIL] fighters in Mount Sinjar in Northern Province of Iraq. The article ‘The revival of slavery before the hour’ published in Dabiq, the ISIL magazine, wrongly justifies enslavement by quoting the Sharia.

The ISIL’s forcible enslavement of Yazidi women and children is wrong on following grounds:

1.    It is inhuman to enslave fellow humans.

2.    Yazidi women and children didn’t wish to be enslaved by the ISIL fighters. Yazidi women and children can very well take care of themselves and as such didn’t wish to be forcibly owned by ISIL.

3.    The times have changed. It’s no more the dark middle ages. Numerous international and charity organizations exist to take care of the helpless and the needy ones.
