Slave-girls’ sexual rights
Referring back to Qur-an 23.5-7, Muslim men are permitted to have sex with “those whom their right hands possess” which is a reference to captives of war after there is no exchange of prisoners between the two sides. Well, again, there is no linguistic basis in the Arabic or any worthwhile translation behind the use of force. There is no linguistic or logical way to deduct rape from this or any of the statements regarding war-captives in an Islamic state. So if it is asked how a man would have sex with a war-captive without raping her, my answer, and mine alone, would be with consent, as the use of force is not sanctioned in the Qur-an or any authenticated Prophetic narration.
Whether or not war-captives’ sexual rights as I have outlined them are found to be objectionable by some or many, it is clear that rape has no place in them.
