Qul HuwaAllahu Ahud!
You live in fourteenth century, according to the hijri calender. Does that make any difference?As I said - the article was a polemic and fails to recognize that we now live in the 21st century and not the 1st century.
Islam and its practice and teachings are not "confined" and "defined" by the age or century you live in. It's the Qur'an and the Sunnah. If even in this 21st or 14th century, you attack a state ruled by Islam and lose. They'll take your prisoners as slaves and it will be permitted to them by what will rule them i.e Qur'an and Sunnah. "You" fail to recognize the "main" point of this thread. It is about explaining the permissible and prohibited stuff in related to slaves btw.
I don't care what they "do". I care about what is in "their Book". If they have stoning and burning oxen in their books, they should keep their beautiful lips together. Since they don't. Learnt people tell them off for their lies and what they have in their books. It's about time we separate the "actions" of people from the "teachings" of the Religion, if we are to understand a religion or choose it.The Bible also sanctions all sorts of other behaviour which we now find abhorrent. Stoned anyone lately? How about burning an ox in your backyard?
They are against the law "around" the world. The point I'm trying to make is, we are discussing "Islamic Law" here, which is valid for practice when there are Muslims in a Muslims. So no, the question isn't a non question.All of these things are against the law in some form - well they are if you live in a Western country.
So the OP question is a non question - rape is against the law.
Lie? Could you please explain why I'm accused of such a thing? I don't advocates lies=(So you accept the lie because you have little faith.
wa`alaikum salaam warahmatullaahi wabaraakatuh!
Awesome, indeed!=) I'm about halfway through it, hopefully I'll be done by tomorrow! (kiddin'- tonight maybe...)
Yeah. I know it's long, but you will have no regrets Inshaa'Allaah *Smile*.
How would I know? Trust me ukht, I'm a girl not someone's husband (Just kidding ukht.)I just rcently heard of such cases... and I've yet to understand it! How does one *rape* his wife? Subhaanallah, what has the world come to?
BaraakAllaahu feeki.But Jazaakillaahu khayr for sharing this. I've always wanted to look more into this issue- 'bout time I did!
