Slavery in Major Religions

  1. 1. In Major Religions Slavery BY Magdy Abdaldahafy
  2. 2. In the HOLY BOOK Beating slaves is allowed on condition that beating him would not disable him for two days Exodus 21:20-21 “And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod, and he die under his hand; he shall be surely punished. Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be punished: for he is his money [property].”
  3. 3. In ISLAM Punishing a slave severely is atoned by freeing him. Prophet Mohammed (saw) said: “Whoever slaps his slave or strikes him, his atonement (KAFFARA) is to free him.”
  4. 4. THE HOLY BOOK condones killing a slave 20-21 “If a man beats his male or female slave with a rod and the slave dies as a direct result, he must be punished, but he is not to be punished if the slave gets up after a day or two, since the slave is his property.”
  5. 5. THE HOLY BOOK condones killing a slave 20-21 “If a man beats his male or female slave with a rod and the slave dies as a direct result, he must be punished, but he is not to be punished if the slave gets up after a day or two, since the slave is his property.” ISLAM Doesn’t condones killing a slave In Islam, whoever kills a slave, even if he is his master, should be killed The Prophet Said: “whoever kills his slave, we will kill him.”
  6. 6. A SLAVE is not ordinary people IN THE BIBLE In the Old testament, there is No Difference Between The Slaves And Animals. Exodus 23:12 "Six days do your work, but on the seventh day do not work, so that your ox and your donkey may rest and the slave born in your household, and the alien as well, may be refreshed."
  7. 7. A SLAVE is not ordinary people IN THE BIBLE Bulls are to be put to death if they gore normal people, but they are just stoned if they gore a SLAVE. Exodus 21:32 "If the bull gores a male or female SLAVE, the owner must pay thirty shekels of silver to the master of the slave, and the bull must be stoned But Not To Death"
  8. 8. IN ISLAM slaves are ordinary people and even Brothers And Sisters The Prophet Says "Those slaves are your brothers, only God gave you an upper hand over them. So let that who has his brother (i.e. slave) under him give him the same food he himself eats, and the same clothing as he himself wears. The master may not give his brother a task that is beyond his ability. If he does give him such task, let him lend him a hand" The Prophet prohibited the Moslems to use the word SALVE, he, instead, ordered the Moslems to say" My Girl, My Boy."
  9. 9. In THE BIBLE A Father Can Sell His Daughter In the Bible, the Father Has The Right To Sell His Daughter To Be Forced To Sleep With Other Men according to Exodus 21:7-8, “and if she tries to be redeemed (to be set free), then her punishment is to be Stuck With Her Master!”
  10. 10. In Islam Bringing Up A Female And Educating Her Will Lead To The Paradise The prophet said " whoever teaches his girl and honors her, he will enter the paradise”
  11. 11. In the Holy Book, SLAVES are property Exodus 21:20-21 "And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod, and he die under his hand; he shall be surely punished. Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be punished: for he is his money [property]."
  12. 12. In ISLAM, they are our brothers and sisters They Even Can Lead Masters In Prayers And Hold High Offices  A slave led A'isha, the prophet's wife in prayer.  Zeid ibn Harith was a slave who became the Islamic Army leader.
