Egypt’s Al-Azhar Professor Suad Saleh rape allowed by Allah, Islam ‘only regulated’ the practice, makes infidel women slaves

According to an Islamic scholar from the Al-Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt, Muslim men are allowed by Allah to rape non-Muslim or infidel women to “humiliate” them.

In a recent interview on Cairo television Professor Suad Saleh said rape is allowed in Islam during times of “legitimate war” between Muslims and their enemies, the Daily Express reported on Monday.

The Islamic scholar claimed that Allah has given Muslim men a “legitimate” way to have sexual relations with slave women, stating that slavery already existed even before Islam and that Islam only regulated the practice.

She said slave women are those who have been captured as prisoners of war, adding that their Muslim captors have the right to own them.

“In order to humiliate them, they become the property of the army commander, or of a Muslim, and he can have sex with them just like he has sex with his wives,” Saleh said.

Saleh’s comments are disheartening coming from a professor from “Sunni Islam’s most prestigious university” which is more than 1,000 years old, said Dr Andrew Holt, professor of history at Florida State College. Holt added that he is concerned the statements could be viewed as approval for the enslavement of Yazidi women by barbaric Islamic State.

“According to ISIS, the practice of forcing the Yazidis and other religious minorities into sexual slavery is a way to prevent the sin of premarital sex or adultery, as well as a sign that the Final Battle will soon occur.

“In the fourth issue of Dabiq, an article titled ‘The Revival of Slavery before the Hour’ explains that polytheist and pagan women can and should be enslaved.”

Jihad Watch said Saleh’s statements were based on the Quran. The group said the seizure of infidel girls and their use as sex slaves are all sanctioned in the Muslim holy book.

Jihad Watch cited this Quranic as proof: “O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou hast paid their dowries, and those whom thy right hand possesseth of those whom Allah hath given thee as spoils of war.”

The Qur’an says that a man may have sex with his wives and also with his slave girls, the group says. It cited this particular verse in the Quran: “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)
