|Examining controversial aspects of Islam, Muhammad, Allah, Muslims||
When the members of the Islamic State use slaves for sex, what Islamic justification do they provide? Quranic verses they likely use include 70:29-30 "And those who preserve their chastity, except with THOSE THEIR RIGHT HANDS POSSESS."
Muhammad said "I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), & while I slept, the keys of the world's treasures were brought & put in my hand." (Sahih Bukhari 4:52.220). Does ISIS likewise seek victory through terror?
It can be argued that the fondness of the Islamic State for beheading people can be traced to Quran 47:4 ("When you encounter the unbelievers on the battlefield, strike off their heads until you have crushed them completely"). Do you agree?
In addition to Quran 47:4, this hadith could well have had an impact on the tendency of the Islamic State (ISIS) to behead people: "The Jews were made to come down, and Allah's Messenger imprisoned them. The the Prophet went out into the marketplace of Medina (it is still its marketplace today) and he had trenches dug in it. He sent for the Jewish men and HAD THEM BEHEADED in those trenches. They were brought out to him in batches. They numbered 800 to 900 boys and men. (al-Tabari, vol. 8, p. 35).
