Except your deluded comment about the Quran endorsing prostitution is as absurd as flying pigs. Actually there's better chances of seeing pigs, with the continued testing on animals in labs and failed pharmaceutical programmes, since the Quran has not been altered from it's original text whereas pigs have deformations (due to afore given reasons and so on).

So either you are ignorant of the 1400+ years of Islamic history, not that I blame you, or your head's elsewhere.

YUSUFALI: Let those who find not the wherewithal for marriage keep themselves chaste, until Allah gives them means out of His grace. And if any of your slaves ask for a deed in writing (to enable them to earn their freedom for a certain sum), give them such a deed if ye know any good in them: yea, give them something yourselves out of the means which Allah has given to you. But force not your maids to prostitution when they desire chastity, in order that ye may make a gain in the goods of this life. But if anyone compels them, yet, after such compulsion, is Allah, Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful (to them),

PICKTHAL: And let those who cannot find a match keep chaste till Allah give them independence by His grace. And such of your slaves as seek a writing (of emancipation), write it for them if ye are aware of aught of good in them, and bestow upon them of the wealth of Allah which He hath bestowed upon you. Force not your slave-girls to whoredom that ye may seek enjoyment of the life of the world, if they would preserve their chastity. And if one force them, then (unto them), after their compulsion, lo! Allah will be Forgiving, Merciful.

SHAKIR: And let those who do not find the means to marry keep chaste until Allah makes them free from want out of His grace. And (as for) those who ask for a writing from among those whom your right hands possess, give them the writing if you know any good in them, and give them of the wealth of Allah which He has given you; and do not compel your slave girls to prostitution, when they desire to keep chaste, in order to seek the frail good of this world's life; and whoever compels them, then surely after their compulsion Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

If God is rational, He would not criminalise institutions, but regulate them.

The Koran tolerates prostitution, provided you do not force your slave girls into prostitution.

If slave girls are allowed to be prostitutes, then all the more would free-born women be free to become prostitutes. Just saying.

Sajjad Shah Hadith have shown our Prophet SAW always encouraged to free slaves.

Islam gave the rights to slaves. Do you know a Slave could take his owner to court?

If you read History Islam spread so far within 30years had taken over the Persian empire and Eastern Roman Empire. People happly accepted Islam. They weren't forced.

The thing is while Islam gave them rights and always encouraged to free slaves. It was normal to have them, many great leaders and kings had them.

Before looking at Islam and slavery. Look at how the west treated Black people. It's not long ago that slavery was abolished.

Oh yeah btw we always talk about black slavery but did you know that the blacks also had thousands maybe millions of Eurpeon slaves in North Africa. Learn history stop this "Oh islam allowed this and that" it was normal infact you will see that Prophet David had thousands of concubines in the Bible.

Do you know that slaves were educated ? Search about the mamaluke who were trained and taught and defeated great armies.

In Madina Slaves use to be bought and taught Islam and then freed famous person to do that was Imam Zain ul abideen. Who use to sell them? Muslims? I doubt it.

Claire Khaw I can reason that you have not produced a single verse that says slavery should be abolished. despite your huffing and puffing.
Kamal Hussain She asks for Quran - I present to her (Claire) historical facts. Does the Quran have specific frameworks on what is 'good behaviour?' No, but we find it in the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم.

So your constant barrage on 'one verse one verse' is quite ludicrous Claire, get over yourself. Even if the Quran had a specific verse, you would find another avenue to start a discussion where there is none. Go figure, that an oppressed man like Al-Hajj Malik Shabbazz (AKA Malcolm X) saw the equality of Islam and made no mention of this, but this privileged woman (or troll) blows her trumpet.

Why don't you talk about Modern slavery and about what's happening now if you're such an ambassador of 'Human Rights?'

Why don't you go elsewhere rather than nitpick on the only successful nation on the planet which removed racism from society and eradicated slavery from it's society - until they were colonised by your people and taught 'lower values' by your people?

Go and address Capitalism, the IMF and World Bank if you care so much and take your huffing and puffing over there if you are upright.

Muhammad Mustaqeem Shah Claire Khaw 24:33 is absolutely clear.
One needs to start reading from a couple of verses before that. So, the same chapter 24; Noor (light) says in 30 "tell the believers to lower their gaze and guard their chastity...". 31: commands the same to believing women. And it mentions the whole list of who is allowed to see her outer body's beauty and who isn't etc. This is called decency By the way.
32 commands that the unmarried ones should be married. Why? What is the goal and purpose of marriage? To guard the chastity etc and not even to look at the money factor for Allah will make them content and give them sustenance out of His grace and He is 'waaai' (great provider/generous) and All-Knowing.
Then starts 33 that your are referring to.
Which says: " وليستعفف الذين لا يجدون نكاحا حتي يغنهم الله من فضله...".
In this 33, there is nothing you that indicates towards the 'claim' you are making! Rather you assume things and read your own mind which is absolutely a 'fabricated' narrative. I don't understand how and from where did you bring this business of no married people having sex and yet not committing adultery? And so on.

Muhammad Mustaqeem Shah Claire Khaw It is not allowed for a woman to commit adultery or fornication) whether she is a slave woman or a free woman, and it is not permissible for her master to allow her to do so; rather, he is obliged to prevent her from committing Zina according to his ability. This verse was revealed to clarify what used to happen at that time as some hypocrites, like ‘Abdullaah ibn Ubay ibn Salool, used to compel their slave girls to commit Zina so that they would bring them some money, so the verse prohibited them from doing so.
The condition of desiring chastity in the verse is mentioned because it corresponds to the state of being compelled to do so and this is the case in which desiring chastely often exists, because if a slave girl does that out of her own will, then she does not need to be compelled to do that in principle, and this meaning is mentioned by Ibn Al-‘Arabi may Allaah have mercy upon him in his book entitled “Ahkaam Al-Quran” (The Rulings of the Quran).

Claire Khaw You wish to bring back slavery. How would that work?

CK: Bankrupts and criminals unable to financially compensate for the damage to property or injury to person or death they caused could be enslaved. Ownership of the slave would reside in the state and the state would hire out the labour of these slaves to hirers through the Department of Work Pensions and Manumissions. Slavery could be an alternative form of welfare since the hirers would be expected to accommodate and feed the slaves. Slave Visitors would be like Social Workers visiting slaves to see if they are working properly and to see that the hirers are not damaging government property. Illegal immigrants could also be enslaved, which is easier and cheaper than rounding them up and sending them back where they came from. Council accommodation could perhaps become slave quarters.
