ICNA Canada’s online syllabus on “slave-girls”

The website of ICNA Canada (Islamic Circle of North America) shares the book “Riyad us Saliheen” (“The Gardens of the Righteous” رياض الصالحين), a collection of hadiths (record of the traditions or sayings of Muhammad) compiled by Imam Zakaruya Yahya Bin Sharaf An-Nawawi, a Sunni Shafi’ite jurist and hadith scholar who lived in 13th century.

The book on ICNA Canada site contains also modern commentary of the hadiths. Here is an excerpt from the book (originally in English):

If a slave-girl is guilty of fornication, she is liable to a punishment of fifty stripes, and this punishment can be given by her master… One hundred stripes or stoning to death in case of fornication… if they commit the mischief, it will prove fatal because in an Islamic state this crime is punishable by Rajm (stoning to death).

ICNA Canada’s “Syllabus for the Month of March for MGAs and Workers” shares verses 1-11 of chapter 23 of the Quran, Al-Mu’minun (The Believers), accompanied with modern commentary (originally in English):

“Successful indeed are the believers. (1) Those who offer their Salât (prayers) with all solemnity and full submissiveness. (2) And those who turn away from Al-Laghw (dirty, false, evil vain talk, falsehood, and all that Allâh has forbidden). (3) And those who pay the Zakât. (4) And those who guard their chastity (i.e. Private parts, from illegal sexual acts). (5) Except from their wives or (slaves) that their right hands possess, – for then, they are free from blame; (6) But whoever seeks beyond that, then those are the transgressors; (7) Those who are faithfully true to their Amanât (all the duties which Allâh has ordained, honesty, moral responsibility and trusts)[] and to their covenants; (8) And those who strictly guard their (five compulsory congregational) Salawât (prayers) (at their fixed stated hours).[] (9) These are indeed the inheritors. (10) Who shall inherit the Firdaus (Paradise). They shall dwell therein forever. (11) (Translation by Dr. Mohsin)”

The commentary suggests that under certain conditions it is permissible for Muslim men to own a slave woman.
