اسلام عليكم I was reading about slavery in islam. The matter which striked my mind is Why a slave women will give consent for sex to her master who owns her because we know that she became slave due some circumstances(captured in war) not by her own will.
I am not an Islamic scholar, but from what I learnt/researched.... here are my findings. As far as I know, since the idea of prison or dungeons weren't really favoured for war criminals or prisoners in Islam. They were placed in houses as slaves or servent....atleast that's better than rotten in a cell. Anyways, slaves in Islam are meant to be treated with the utmost kindness and leniency. As it may occur, sometimes, female/male slaves living with familes may develop desires etc. In such cases "I THINK"....is why sex with slaves has been permitted. Please do correct me if I am wrong! So if a female slave gives consent...then it should be fine. But if she doesn't then it should be respected...SO HER CONCENT IS HER WILL. And this is my understanding! Jazakallah
It is against the rulings of the Quran to enslave the male or female war captives and to have sexual relations with them without marriage. Although the verses about this subject are clear, by distorting the meanings of words, a false perception was created and it has been turned into the common view of all sects including Sunni and Shia female captives can be used as concubines.
