Leaders of the Canadian Muslim community have repeatedly condemned ISIS inhuman practices blaming it of extreme and misguided interpretation of the Quran and of being deviated from the true Islamic teachings.
In a publication circulated to its followers last year, the Islamic State (a.k.a. IS, ISIS, ISIL, The Caliphate), provided the Islamic-based guidelines for “capturing apostate women” and taking “possession” of them as “slaves,” which means a permission to have intercourse with the female slaves even if it is against their will.
The following are selected excerpts of the Islamic guidelines issued by ISIS:
“Unbelieving [women] who were captured and brought into the abode of Islam are permissible to us… It is permissible to have sexual intercourse with the female captive… If she is a virgin, he [her master] can have intercourse with her immediately after taking possession of her. However, is she isn’t, her uterus must be purified [first]… It is permissible to buy, sell, or give as a gift female captives and slaves, for they are merely property… It is permissible to have intercourse with the female slave who hasn’t reached puberty if she is fit for intercourse… It is permissible to beat the female slave as a form of disciplinary beating…”
ICNA Canada: It is permissible for Muslim men to have sex with their female slaves
ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America) Canada is an Islamic nationalwide organization striving “to build an Exemplary Canadian Muslim Community” by “total submission to Him [Allah] and through the propagation of true and universal message of Islam.”
Located at 391 Burnhamthorpe Rd., East, Oakville, Ontario, ICNA Canada emphasizes that “the propagation of true and universal message of Islam is only possible in Canada when whole Canadian Muslim Community transformed into a Dawah community by practicing and propagating the true Islamic Way of Life. With the vision of building an exemplary Canadian Muslim community it is very important to spread the word of Islam…”
Dr. Iqbal Massod Al-Nadvi is the Amir (President) of Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) Canada and is also serving as Chairperson of Canadian Council of Imams. he also served as Director of Al-Falah Islamic School in Oakville, Ontario from 2004 to 2011, prior to which he served as Imam of Muslim Association of Calgary Islamic Center from 1998-2004 and as a member of the University of Calgary chaplaincy team.
Zunera Ishaq, the woman that stood at the centre of the “niqab debate” in the Canadian election campaign, works for the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA).
ICNA Canada shares with its followers a “Syllabus for the Month of March for MGAs and Workers” that provides selected verses of the Quran and hadiths (traditions containing sayings of Mohammad the prophet of Islam that constitute the major source of guidance).
The syllabus contains verses 1-11 verses of Chapter 23 of the Qurab Al-Mu’minun – The Believers in Arabic and in English accompanied with interpretation:
“Successful indeed are the believers. (1) Those who offer their Salât (prayers) with all solemnity and full submissiveness. (2) And those who turn away from Al-Laghw (dirty, false, evil vain talk, falsehood, and all that Allâh has forbidden). (3) And those who pay the Zakât. (4) And those who guard their chastity (i.e. Private parts, from illegal sexual acts). (5) Except from their wives or (slaves) that their right hands possess, – for then, they are free from blame; (6) But whoever seeks beyond that, then those are the transgressors; (7) Those who are faithfully true to their Amanât (all the duties which Allâh has ordained, honesty, moral responsibility and trusts) and to their covenants; (8) And those who strictly guard their (five compulsory congregational) Salawât (prayers) (at their fixed stated hours). (9) These are indeed the inheritors. (10) Who shall inherit the Firdaus (Paradise). They shall dwell therein forever. (11) (Translation by Dr. Mohsin)”
The interpretation of verses 4 and 5, as appears on ICNA Canada’s syllabus, confirms the permission for Muslim men to take a slave woman and to have an intercourse with her.
Islamic ruling on ‘sex slave’
Saudi Shaykh Muhammad Saalih al-Munajjid explains this issue his website islamqa.info (which is recommended by some Islamic organizations in Canada as a valuable source of information):
“Islam allows a man to have intercourse with his slave woman, whether he has a wife or wives or he is not married.
“A slave woman with whom a man has intercourse is known as a sariyyah (concubine) from the word sirr, which means marriage.
“This is indicated by the Qur’aan and Sunnah, and this was done by the Prophets… Our Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) also did that, as did the Sahaabah, the righteous and the scholars.
“The scholars are unanimously agreed on that and it is not permissible for anyone to regard it as haraam or to forbid it. Whoever regards that as haraam is a sinner who is going against the consensus of the scholars…
The wife has no right to object to her husband owning female slaves or to his having intercourse with them.”
Free Islamic book at Dundas Square in Toronto explains the “legitimate sources of slaves” according to Islam
The Walk in Islamic Info Center (WIIC), a Toronto-based organization dedicated to Dawah (propagating Islam) activity, has an Islamic booth at Dundas Square in downtown Toronto. Last year activists at the Islamic booth distributed for free the book “Human Rights in Islam and Common Misconceptions.”
The book stipulates “two exceptions as legitimate sources of slaves,” which are “war captives, or prisoners of lawfully declared wars by a Muslim ruler” and “an inherited slave born from two slave parents.” Other sections of the book sanction crucifixion, chopping off thieves’ limbs, stoning adulterers to death, imposing the Jizyah tax on non-Muslim residents and launching to jihad to spread the message of Islam.
