Jan 4 '13 at 8:35 comment added Muz There's the economic/social damage of instantly abolishing something too deeply ingrained in society, similar to as if Islam tried to prohibit polygamy back then. But Islam has always had people freeing slaves as a Sunnah, and as a punishment for some sins.
Jan 1 '13 at 12:04 comment added owari The slavery that you may mean (treat your slave anyway that you want, kill him or leave him alive and etc) has never been allowed in Islam AFAIK, however, owning slaves as somewhat more strict form of a paid worker remained allowed, although still as @systemdown has mentioned in his answer freeing slaves have been always encouraged and sometimes forced as penalties. The form of slavery in Islam is far different than what you see in movies about slavery in US. Hopefully someone can bring you evidences for these claims. ;) Godspeed
