As Muslims know, an Egyptian Ruler gave Maria the Copt and her Sister, Sirin, to Muhammad as a "Gift." Now, is it Morally Acceptable to Accept Another Human as a Gift? Would you accept another adult human as a gift?
Maria the Copt became Muhammad's sex slave. [He may have married her later, though this is highly disputed]. But let us turn our attention to her sister, Sirin. Muhammad gave Sirin to Hassan ibn Thabit. Debate Questions: What kind of man gives an adult woman to another man as a gift? What did Sirin do to deserve becoming a sex slave?

I know that I would not like being given to another as a gift, the fate of the poor Sirin

Islam is vilified because Muhammad gave Sirin to Hasan bin Thabit. Rather than taking all women to his own, Muhammad gave to his friend. This point is purposely not brought up.
Jo, would you like being given to a stranger as a gift to become that stranger's slave? Muhammad freed Safiyah. Why did Safiyah deserve freedom, but Sirin did not deserve freedom?
