This excellent video points out the fact that Islam is Islam; there is no moderate or extreme form of it. Believers are violent because of what they believe: Allah’s imperatives contained in 8:12, 8:39, 9:29 & 9:123, his threat contained in 9:38-39 and his promise contained in 9:111 & 61:10-12.

If we would win this war, we must cause them to quit believing; to destroy their faith as described by Brig. S.K. Malik on page 60 of “The Quranic Concept of War”.

In the Qur’an Allah commands Muslims to fight, and kill impious Muslims, Christian, and Jews, and Hindus, and Buddhists, and all other non-Muslims in jihads “Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve, and fight in the cause of Satan. So fight you against the friends of Satan. Ever feeble indeed is the plot of Satan.” Qur’an 4:76, and “Verily, Allah loves those who fight in His Cause in rows as if they were a solid structure.” Qur’an 61:4, and “O you who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allah is with those who are the pious.” Qur’an 9:123, and “Remember when your Lord inspired the angels, ‘Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes.” Qur’an 8:12, and “O Prophet Muhammad! Strive hard against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be severe against them, their abode will be Hell-and worse indeed is that destination.” Qur’an 66:9, and “And He it is Who has withheld their hands from you and your hands from them in the midst of Mecca, after He had made you victors over them, and Allah is Ever the All-Seer of what you do. They are the ones who disbelieved in the Oneness of Allah and hindered you from the sacred mosque of Mecca and the sacrificial animals, detained from reaching their place of sacrifice. Had there not been believing men and believing women whom you did not know, that you may kill them, and on whose account a sin would have been committed by you without your knowledge, that Allah might bring into His Mercy who He will. If the believers and disbelievers should have been apart, We verily had punished those of them who disbelieved with painful torment.” Qur’an 48:24-25, and “If the hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease and those who spread false news among the people of Madina, cease not, We shall certainly let you overpower them, then they will not be able to stay in it as your neighbours but a little while. Accursed, wherever found, they shall be seized and killed with a terrible slaughter.” Qur’an 33:60-61

Allah commands Muslims to take non-Muslims as slaves, their possessions, and land from jihad “And abundant spoils that they will capture. And Allah is Ever All-Mighty, All-Wise. Allah has promised you abundant spoils that you will capture, and He has hastened for you this, and He has restrained the hands of men from you, that it may be a sign for the believers, and that He may guide you to a Straight Path.” Qur’an 48:19-20, and “They ask you O Muhammad about the spoils of war. Say: ‘The spoils are for Allah and the Messenger.’ So fear Allah and adjust all matters of difference among you, and obey Allah and His Messenger Muhammad if you are believers.” Qur’an 8:1, and “It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war until he had made a great slaughter among his enemies in the land. You desire the good of this world but Allah desires for you the Hereafter. And Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise. Were it not a previous ordainment from Allah, a severe torment would have touched you for what you took. So enjoy what you have gotten of booty in war, lawful and good, and be afraid of Allah. Certainly, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful” Qur’an 8:67-69, and “So, when you meet those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly on them as captives. Thereafter either free them for generosity or for ransom until the war lays down the burden. Thus you are ordered by Allah to continue in carrying out Jihad against the disbelievers till they embrace Islam or at least come under your rule, but if it had been Allah’s Will, He Himself could certainly have punished them with you. But He lets you fight in order to test you, some with others. But those who are killed in the Way of Allah, He will never let their deeds be lost. He will guide them and set right their state. And admit them to Paradise which He has made known to them. O you who believe! If you help in the cause of Allah, He will help you, and make your foothold firm.” Qur’an 47:4-7, and “And those of the people of the Scripture who backed the disbelievers-Allah brought them down from their forts and caused terror into their hearts, so a group of them you killed, and a group of them you made captives. And He caused you to inherit their lands, and their houses, and their riches, and a land which you had not trodden before. And Allah is Able to do all things.” Qur’an 33:26-27. Allah here commands Muslims to conquer, and colonise Christian, Jewish, and all other disbeliever lands through jihad. Muslims are colonialists. They are Islamic Imperialists. Islam is a colonialist religion. Ahmed Gran of Adal in the Horn of Africa began a jihad against the Christian Black African Kingdom of Ethiopia. The Ottoman Turks had colonial rule down the Red Sea. In 1540 the Ottoman Turks began to attack coastal Black African kingdoms in eastern Africa. The Muslim Ottoman Turks helped Ahmed’s jihads. Some of the African rulers asked the Portuguese for help against the Ottoman invaders. The next year Portuguese helped. Together the Portuguese, and the Ethiopians fought against the Ottoman Turks, and Ahmed from conquering, and colonising the region.

A part of the spoils of jihad are slave women, and children “Successful indeed are the believers. Those who offer their prayers with all solemnity and full submissiveness. And those who turn away from all that Allah has forbidden. And those who pay the Zakat. And those who guard their chastity except from their wives or that their right hands possess-for then, they are free from blame.” Qur’an 23:1-6, and Qur’an 70:29-30. “Right hands possess” means their captives, or slaves “And whoever of you have not the means wherewith to wed free, believing women, they may wed believing girls from among the captives and slaves whom your right hands posses, and Allah has full knowledge about your Faith, you are one from another. Wed them with the permission of their masters and give them their bridal-money according to what is reasonable; the captives and slave girls should be chaste, not adulterous, nor taking boy-friends. And after they have been taken in wedlock, if they commit illegal sexual intercourse, their punishment is half that for free unmarried women. This is for him among you who is afraid of being harmed in his religion or in his body; but it is better for you to restrain yourself, and Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” Qur’an 4:25
“Narrated by Anas: ‘The Prophet offered the Fajr Prayer near Khaibar when it was still dark and then said, ‘Allahu-Akbar! Khaibar is destroyed, for whenever we approach a nation to fight, then evil will be the morning for those who have been warned.’ Then the inhabitants of Khaibar came out running on the roads. The Prophet had their warriors killed, their offspring and women taken as captives. Safiya was amongst the captives. She first came in the share of Dahya Alkali but later on she belonged to the Prophet. The Prophet made her manumission as her bridal-price.” Sahih Bukhari 5:59:512.
“Narrated by Ibn Aun: ‘I wrote a letter to Nafi and Nafi wrote in reply to my letter that the Prophet had suddenly attacked Bani Mustaliq without warning while they were heedless and their cattle were being watered at the places of water. Their fighting men were killed and their women and children were taken as captives. The Prophet got Juwairiya on that day. Nafi said that Ibn Umar had told him the above narration and that Ibn Umar was in that army.” Sahih Bukhari 3:46:717

Allah promises heaven for all Muslims who die in jihad. Allah promises all Muslims heaven if they kill themselves in suicide martyrdom. Muslims are happy to fight because they will immediately go to paradise if they die in battle. Allah says in the Qur’an “And say not of those who are killed in the Way of Allah, ‘They are dead.’ No, they are living, but you perceive it not.” Qur’an 2:154, and “Verily, Allah has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allah’s Cause, so they kill others and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Torah and the Gospel and the Qur’an. And who is truer to his covenant than Allah? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success.” Qur’an 9:111, and “That you believe in Allah and His Messenger Muhammad and that you strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allah with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know! If you do He will forgive you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow, and pleasant dwelling in Gardens of Eternity, that is indeed the great success.” Qur’an 61:11-12, and “Let those believers who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter fight in the Cause of Allah, and whoso fights in the Cause of Allah, and is killed or gets victory, We shall bestow on him a great reward.” Qur’an 4:74
“Narrated by Abu Huraira: ‘I heard Allah’s Messenger saying, ‘The example of a Muslim warrior in Allah’s Cause-and Allah knows better who really strives in His Cause-is like a person who fasts and prays continuously. Allah guarantees that He will admit a Muslim warrior in His Cause into Paradise if he is killed, otherwise He will return him to his home safely with rewards and war booty.” Sahih Bukhari, Vol.4, Hadith No.46.
“Narrated by Abu Said Al-Khudri: ‘Somebody asked, ‘O Allah’s Messenger! Who is the best among the people?’ Allah’s Messenger replied ‘A believer who strives his utmost in Allah’s Cause with his life and property.’ They asked, ‘Who is next?’ He replied, ‘A believer who stays in one of the mountain paths worshipping Allah and leaving the people secure from his mischief.” Sahih Bukhari, Vol.4, Hadith No.45.
“Narrated by Abu Huraira: ‘Allah’s Messenger said, ‘Allah guarantees him who strives in His Cause and whose motivation for going out is nothing but Jihad in His Cause and Belief in His Word, that He will admit him into Paradise if martyred or bring him back to his dwelling place, whence he has come out, with what he gains of reward or booty.” Sahih Bukhari, Vol.4, Hadith No.352.
“Narrated by Jabir bin Abdullah: ‘On the day of the battle of Uhud, a man came to the Prophet and said, “Can you tell me where I will be if I should be martyred?’ The Prophet replied, ‘In Paradise.’ The man threw away some dates he was carrying in his hand, and fought till he was martyred.” Sahih Bukhari, Vol.5, Hadith No.377.
“Narrated by Anas bin Malik: ‘The Prophet said, ‘Nobody who dies and finds good from Allah in the Hereafter would wish to come back to this world, even if he were given the whole world and whatever is in it except the martyr who, on seeing the superiority of martyrdom would like to come back to the world and get killed again in Allah’s Cause.” Sahih Bukhari, Vol.4, Hadith No.53.
“Narrated by Abu Huraira: ‘The Prophet said, ‘By Him in Whose Hands my life is! Were it not for some men amongst the believers who dislike to be left behind me, and whom I cannot provide with means of conveyance, I would certainly never remain behind any army going out for Jihad in Allah’s Cause. By Him in Whose Hands my life is! I would love to be martyred in Allah’s Cause and then come back to life, and then get martyred and then come back to life again, and then get martyred and then come back to life again, and then get martyred.” Sahih Bukhari, Vol.4, Hadith No.54

It is true some verses seem peaceful “Say O Muhammad to the believers to forgive those who harm them and hope not for the Days of Allah, that He may recompense people according to what they have earned.” Qur’an 45:14. But this verse was cancelled by Qur’an 9:36 “Verily, the number of months with Allah is twelve months, so was it ordained by Allan on the Day when He created the heavens and the earth; of them four are Sacred. That is the right religion, so wrong not yourselves therein, and fight against the disbelievers collectively, as they fight against you collectively. But know that Allah is with those who are pious and fear Allah much and love Allah much.”, and “And fight in the Way of Allah those who fight you, but transgress not the limits. Truly, Allah likes not the transgressors. And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And disbelief is worse than killing. And fight not with them at the sanctuary at Mecca, unless they first fight you there. But if they attack you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers.” Qur’an 2:190-191
“Narrated by Abdullah bin Masud: ‘I asked Allah’s Messenger, ‘O Allah’s Messenger! What is the best deed?’ He replied, ‘To offer the prayers at their early fixed times.’ I asked, ‘What is next in goodness?’ He replied, ‘To be good and dutiful to your parents.’ I further asked, ‘What is next in goodness?’ He replied, ‘To participate in jihad in Allah’s Cause.’ I did not ask Allah’s Messenger anymore and if I had asked him more, he would have told me more.” Sahih Bukhari, Vol.4 Hadith No.41.
“Narrated by Ibn Masud: ‘A man asked the Prophet ‘What deeds are the best?’ The Prophet said: ‘To perform daily prayers at their stated fixed times; to be good and dutiful to one’s own parents and to participate in Jihad in Allah’s Cause.” Sahih Bukhari, Vol. 9, Hadith No.625.
“Narrated by Abu Huraira: ‘The Prophet said, ‘the one who looks after a widow or a poor person is like a warrior who fights for Allah’s Cause, or like him who performs prayers all the night and fast all the day.” Sahih Bukhari, Vol.7 Hadith No.265.
“Narrated by Abu Huraira: ‘Allah’s Messenger was asked, ‘What is the best deed?’ He replied, ‘To believe in Allah and His Messenger.’ The questioner then asked, ‘What is the next?’ He replied, ‘To participate in Jihad in Allah’s Cause.’ The questioner again asked, ‘What is the next?’ He replied, ‘To perform pilgrimage to Mecca.” Sahih Bukhari, Vol.1 Hadith No.25.
“Narrated by Abu Huraira: ‘The Prophet said, ‘No prayer is harder for the hypocrites than the Fajr and the Isha prayers and if they knew the reward for these prayers at their respective times, they would certainly present themselves in the mosques even if they had to crawl.’ The Prophet added, ‘Certainly I decided to order the call-maker to pronounce Iqama and order a man to lead the prayer and then take a fire flame to burn all those who had not left their houses so far for the prayer along with their houses.” Sahih Bukhari 1:11:626, and ‘Following Badr, Muhammad sent a number of raiders with orders to capture some of the Meccans and burn them alive.” Ishaq 316, and “Allah said, ‘A Prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.” Ishaq 327, and “When the Apostle descends on your land none of your people will be left when he leaves.” Ishaq 588, and “Muhammad’s Companions are the best in war.” Ishaq 472

These verses are cancelled by naskh “Or do they say: ‘He Muhammad has forged it?’ Say: ‘Bring then a chapter like unto it, and call upon whomsoever you can, besides Allah, if you are truthful!” Qur’an 10:38, and “And We change a Verse in place of another, and Allah knows the best of what He sends down, the disbelievers say: ‘You O Muhammad are but a forger and liar.’ No, but most of them know not.” Qur’an 16:101, and “Whatever a Verse do We cancel or cause to be forgotten, We bring a better one or similar to it. Know you not that Allah is Able to do all things?” Qur’an 2:106. The Qur’an is divided into early, and late chapters. The early chapters of the Qur’an are called Meccan, and the later chapters of the Qur’an are called Medinan. The Meccan chapters are more peaceful. The Medinan chapters are more hateful, and violent. Because Allah revealed the Medinan chapters later to Muhammad they are more important than the Meccan chapters. The first Muslim year began when Muhammad moved to Medina from Mecca in 622. It is called the Hijra. It was the beginning of the Muslim calendar. Whenever two verses do not agree Muslims cancel the verse in Meccan chapters, and replace them with verses from the Medinan chapters. Peaceful verses are cancelled, and replaced by hateful, violent verses. Qur’an 9:5 is called the Verse of the Sword, and it canceled every peace treaty, and promise which had been made between Muslims, and disbelievers. This is another reason why Muslims should not be trusted.

Jihad will continue until the whole world is Muslim “And fight them until there is no more disbelief and the religion of worship will all be for Allah Alone in the whole world. But if they cease worshipping others besides Allah, then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do.” Qur’an 8:39, and “And fight them until there is no more disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah and all and every kind of worship is for Allah Alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against the wrong-doers.” Qur’an 2:193

“Then when the Sacred Months have passed, then kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and prepare for them each and every ambush. But if they repent and offer prayers perfectly and give zakat, then leave their way free. Verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” Qur’an 9:5. This verse also allows Muslims to force non-Muslims to convert to Islam. If they do not convert to Islam then Muslims must kill them. “Give zakat” means they must be Muslim. Giving zakat is one of the 5 pillars of Islam. This is the opposite what Jesus said in the Bible “As you go, preach this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven is near. Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received, freely give. Do not take along any gold or silver or copper in your belts; take no bag for the journey, or extra tunic, or sandals or a staff; for the worker is worth his keep. ‘Whatever town or village you enter, search for some worthy person there and stay at his house until you leave. As you enter the home, give it your greeting. If the home is deserving, let your peace rest on it; if it is not, let your peace return to you. If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, shake the dust off your feet when you leave that home or town.” Matthew 10:7-14, and “Then Jesus went around teaching from village to village. Calling the Twelve to him, he sent them out two by two and gave them authority over evil spirits. These were his instructions: ‘Take nothing for the journey except a staff-no bread, no bag, no money in your belts. Wear sandals but not an extra tunic. Whenever you enter a house, stay there until you leave that town. And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, shake the dust off your feet when you leave, as a testimony against them.’ They went out and preached that people should repent. They drove out many demons and anointed many sick people with oil and healed them.” Mark 6:6-13, and “When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick. He told them: ‘Take nothing for the journey-no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra tunic. Whatever house you enter, stay there until you leave that town. If people do not welcome you, shake the dust off your feet when you leave their town, as a testimony against them.’ So they set out and went from village to village, preaching the gospel and healing people everywhere.” Luke 9:1-6

This is similar to death for leaving Islam. Muslims must be killed if they change their religion. “Narrated by Ikrima: ‘Ali burnt some people and this news reached Ibn Abbas, who said, ‘Had I been in his place I would not have burnt them, as the Prophet said, Don’t punish anybody with Allah’s Punishment.’ No doubt, I would have killed them for the Prophet said, ‘If a Muslim discards his religion, kill him.” Sahih Bukhari 4:52:260.
“Narrated by Ikrima: ‘Some atheists were brought to Ali and he burnt them. The news of this event reached Ibn Abbas who said, ‘If I had been in his place, I would have not burnt them as Allah’s Apostle forbade it, saying, ‘Do not punish anybody with Allah’s punishment of fire.’ I would have killed them according to the statement of Allah’s Apostle, ‘Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.” Sahih Bukhari 9:84:57

A jihad against non-Muslims is allowed by sharia law. Jihads allowed Muslims to slave raid against the non-Muslim world. Muslims believe slavery is a divine blessing for mankind because pagans, and barbarians through jihad, and slavery are brought to Islam, and civilisation. The greatest of all medieval Arab social thinkers was the 14th century historian Ibn Khaldun. He wrote “who were brought to the Land of Islam under the rule slavery, which hides in itself a divine blessing. By means of slavery they learn glory and blessing and are exposed to divine providence; cured by slavery, they enter the Muslim religion with the firm resolve of true believers and yet the nomadic virtues unsullied by debased nature, unadulterated by the filth of pleasure, undefiled by ways of living.”
The Qur’an accepts slavery. It recognises the inequality between master, and slave, and the rights of the master over the slave. It also recognises concubinage “Successful indeed are the believers. Those who offer their prayers with all solemnity and full submissiveness. And those who turn away from all that Allah has forbidden. And those who pay the Zakat. And those who guard their chastity except from their wives or that their right hands possess-for then, they are free from blame.” Qur’an 23:1-6. Another example is Qur’an 70:29-30. The Qur’an urges but does not demand kindness to slaves “Worship Allah and join none with Him in worship, and do good to parents, kinsfolk, orphans, the poor who beg, the neighbour who is near of kin, the neighbour who is a stranger, the companion by your side, the wayfarer, and those whom your right hands possess. Verily, Allah does not like such as are proud and boastful.” Qur’an 4:36. “Whom your right hands possess” means slaves, and sex slaves. And “O you who believe! Let your legal slaves and slave-girls, and those among you who have not come to the age of puberty ask your permission on three occasions; before morning prayer, and while you put off your clothes for the noonday, and after the late night prayer. These three times are of privacy for you, other than these times there is no sin on you or on them to move about, attending you each other. Thus Allah makes clear the verses of this Qur’an to you. And Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.” Qur’an 24:58. The slave was chattel with no legal powers, or rights. A slave could marry but only if his master allowed it “And whoever of you have not the means wherewith to wed free, believing women, they may wed believing girls from among the captives and slaves whom your right hands posses, and Allah has full knowledge about your Faith, you are one from another. Wed them with the permission of their masters and give them their bridal-money according to what is reasonable; the captives and slave girls should be chaste, not adulterous, nor taking boy-friends. And after they have been taken in wedlock, if they commit illegal sexual intercourse, their punishment is half that for free unmarried women. This is for him among you who is afraid of being harmed in his religion or in his body; but it is better for you to restrain yourself, and Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” Qur’an 4:25. Slaves were exchanged as compensation for killing another Muslim. The family of the deceased would receive the slave, or slaves as compensation Qur’an 4:92. It is true one good act was to free a slave but this only proves Islam recognises, and institutionalised slavery “And shown him the two ways of good and evil? But he has made no effort to pass on the path that is steep. And what will make you know the path that is steep? It is freeing the neck of a slave. Or giving food in a day of hunger to an orphan near of kin. Or to a poor afflicted with misery.” Qur’an 90:10-16. “Narrated by Abu Huraira: ‘The Prophet said: ‘Whoever frees a Muslim slave, Allah will save all the parts of his body from the Fire, as he has freed the body-parts of the slave.” Sahih Bukhari Vol.3 Hadith No.693. But this act of piety is only for Muslim slaves. Is it the same for disbelieving slaves?

The Qur’an says Islamic hell is full of chained Black skinned people. Is this why white Arab Muslims enslaved non-Muslim Black Africans the most because it was a holy duty? For every one Black slave who survived the tran Saharan, Red Sea, and Indian Ocean passages to the auction blocks in Muslim lands, 6 would die along the passage. Europeans practised slavery for 400 years. Arab Muslims practised slavery since the beginning of Islam to 1980. They practised it for almost 14 centuries. 11500000 Black slaves traveled across the Atlantic Ocean. 10500000 survived to the auction blocks in the Americas. 22000000 Black slaves survived to the auction blocks in the Muslim lands. More than 110000000 Black slaves died traveling along the Muslim passages.
By 652 Arab-Muslims began to raid wars into the Black Nubian Christian Kingdoms of Nobatia, and Makkura. Arab-Muslims tried to colonise the Black Christian Nubian Kingdoms of Nobatia, Makurra, and Alwa. When they failed at first they made a treaty between them in Egypt, and the Black Christian Nubian Kingdoms demanding Black slaves from Nubia as tribute every year. This was the first treaty ever made by a Arab-Muslim state demanding slaves as tribute from a non-Muslim state. This tribute lasted every year until the 12th century when the Muslims in Egypt fought wars against Nubia.
Black slaves were brought to the Islamic empire from the Tran Sahara, and along the Red Sea by ship, and across the Indian Ocean by ship from East Africa to Arabia, Persia, India, southeast Asia, and Indonesia, and China.
The oldest route was from the Sudan down the Nile to Egypt, and across the Red Sea to Arabia. This route began with the first slave tribute agreement forced by Arab-Muslims on Black Nubian Kingdoms. Today Sudan is Muslim but before it was the first sub Saharan Black Christian Kingdom in all of Africa. The Arabs raided West Africa for slaves since 738, and by 750 the tran Saharan trades began to increase. Around the year 800 trading towns are found on the East African coast such as Kilwa Kisiwani Mombasa in Kenya, and the Island of Zanzibar. East African Black slaves called Zanj worked in southern Iraq to drain salt flats, and other Black slaves were forced to work in salt mines in the Sahara, and the gold mines of West Africa. Cotton, sugar, and rice was worked by Black slaves on Arab-Muslim plantations in North Africa, and later by the Ottoman Turks.
A 7th century poet wrote in Arabic “I am being led in Damascus without honour as though I am a slave from Zanj.” In 765 a revolt of Black African slaves occurred in the second holiest Muslim city Medina in Arabia. In the Muslim countryside Black slaves were forced on plantations, and large groups to work in agriculture, mines, marshes. In eastern Arabia 30000 Black slaves were forced to do the hard work. Tens of thousands of East African Black slaves who worked in the salt flats of Basra Iraq removed, and stacked the topsoil to clear the land for sugar, and to extract the saltpetre. They were treated horribly, and revolted several times against their Arab-Muslim masters. In 869 the first Black Zanj slave revolt occurred southeast of Baghdad. These Black slaves worked in salt flats, and on sugarcane plantations, and revolted against their Muslim slave owners. In 874 the second Black Zanj slave revolt began. Black slaves working in the salt flats southeast of Baghdad again revolted against their Muslim slave owners. The Black Zanj slaves were led by Riyah ‘the lion of the Zanj’. They defeated the Abbasid Caliph al-Mutamid’s forces, and stopped commerce for 15 years. From 868 to 883 they became a military threat to the Abbasid Caliphate in Baghdad. They were masters of southern Iraq, and Basra. But they were defeated by the forces of the Caliph’s brother al-Muwaffaq. Later slaves in the region tried to renew the revolt but Muslims massacred 10000 slaves near Monsul.

Ahmad Tulun was the first independent ruler of Muslim Egypt. He relied on Nubian Black slaves for his army, and had 45000 Blacks when he died in 884. When the Tulunids were overthrown in 905 by the Abbasid Caliphate to annexe Egypt back to its empire the caliph massacred the Nubian Black army of the Tulunids, and burned their quarters “Then the cavalry turned against the cantonments of the Tulunid blacks, seized as many of them as they couldn’t, and took them to Muhammad ibn Sulayman. He was on horseback, amid his escort. He gave orders to slaughter them, and they were slaughtered in his presence like sheep.” In Baghdad in 930 the Black army was attacked, and massacred by the Arab cavalry, and the people. Their quarters were burned. Afterwards, Black soldiers almost disappeared from the armies of the Caliphate in the Middle East.
During the Crusades the Muslim leader Saladin in 1169 killed a Black eunuch who wanted to remove Saladin from power. The Black army in Cairo was angry when they heard about this. All the 50000 Black soldiers united together against Saladin, and his army, and fought them between the palaces of the caliph, and vizier. They were defeated because they were betrayed by the Fatimid Caliph al-Adid. The Black soldiers thought they were defending him against the vizier “Al-Adid had gone up to his tower to watch the battle between the palaces. It is said that he ordered the men in the palace to shoot arrows, and throw stones at Saladin’s troops, and they did so. Others say that this was not done by his choice. Shams al-Dawla sent naptha-throwers to burn down al-Adid’s tower. One of them was about to do this when the door of the tower opened, and out came a caliphal aide, who said: ‘The commander of the Faithful greets Saladin’s brother Shams al-Dawla, and says: ‘Beware of the black slave dogs! Drive them out of the country!’ The blacks were sustained by the belief that al-Adid was pleased with what they did. When they heard this, their strength was sapped, their courage waned, and they fled.” Also Saladin’s army attacked their homes. Saladin sent his soldiers to the Black quarters “to burn them down on their possessions, and their children.” When the Black soldiers heard this they returned home but were caught in the streets by Saladin’s army, and destroyed. This battle in Arabian history was known as “The Battle of the Blacks”, and “The Battle of the Slaves.”

Islam was spread by tran Saharan Arab traders to West Africa in the 11th century. Islam spread to sub Saharan Africa in 1070. The Almohades came to rule a massive colonial empire from Spain, and Portugal across the Mediterranean Sea down to sub Saharan Africa near Burkina Faso. They ruled for a century, and traded in Black slaves, gold, ivory. They slave raided pagan Black societies. In 1076 the Muslim black kingdom of Ghana was invaded by the Almoravids. The author Idrisi (1110-1165) also wrote that Moroccan merchants in Takur “bring wood, copper, and beads, and take away gold and slaves.”
In West Africa the Kingdom of Mali arose in the 13th century. Its wealth came from controlling rich goldfields. Tran Saharan trade through caravans of camels grew. Caravan routes grew rapidly at centres where Arab Muslims traded cloth, glass, horses, luxuries from North Africa for Black slaves, ivory, and gold. In 1433 Muslim forces led by Akil captured the city of Timbuktu the cultural centre of the Mali Empire. Later the Kingdom of Songhai replaced Mali as the biggest power in West Africa by 1500. Morocco invaded, and destroyed the sub Saharan Black Muslim Songhai kingdom in 1591 at Tondibi. Arab Muslim Morocco now had a colonial empire which reached close to Burkina. Black male, and female slaves were used for hard labour for money in the salt mines, gold mines, copper mines of the Sahara. The great Muslim geographer Ibn Battuta (1304-1377) wrote of Tagadda in West Africa “From this country come excellent slavegirls, eunuchs, and fabrics dyed with saffron.” Later when Ibn Battuta left for North Africa on September 11, 1353 he wrote he traveled “with a large caravan which included six hundred women slaves.” The greatest medieval Muslim historian the 14th century Ibn Khaldun wrote about the people of West Africa “Therefore, the Negro nations are, as a rule, submissive to slavery, because Negroes have little that is human and have attributes quite similar to those of dumb animals, as we have stated.” He later writes about the Black people south of West Africa “beyond them to the south there is no civilisation in the proper sense. There are only humans who are closer to dumb animals than to rational beings. They live in thickets and caves, and eat herbs and unprepared grain. They
frequently eat each other. They cannot be considered human beings.”

Around the year 800 trading towns are found on the East African coast such as Kilwa Kisiwani Mombasa in Kenya, and the Island of Zanzibar. Arab traders introduced Islam to East Africa in the 10th century. There were Islamic trading towns in East Africa from the Horn of Africa of Somalia to northern Mozambique. In 915 the Arabian geographer Abul-Hasan Ali al-Masudi wrote about the slave trade on the east coast of Africa. He wrote slaves were being traded at Kilwa, and Mombasa, and were transported to Arab settlements. A large scale network of slave trading existed in the Indian Ocean region in which Black East African people were captured, enslaved, and transported. East African Blacks were exported to the Arabian peninsula, Persia, Madagascar, India, southeast Asia, and China. In the tenth century Mutahhar ibn Tahir al-Maqdisi wrote “To the Zanj food and clothing are exported; from them come gold, slaves, and coconuts.”
There are medieval accounts where Black Africans from Madagascar were taken as slaves to the markets of Arabia, and the Middle East. Arab slave traders would sail, and trade, or sell Black slaves from the Swahili East African coast to work on the plantations on Madagascar. Muslim Swahili Arabs would slave raid on the Comoro Island, and on Kilwa, Ibo, Mozambique Island, and Querimba. Other Muslim Arab slave traders exported Black African slaves from Nosy Be, and Oman. Slave raiding, and trading occurred from the Horn of Africa to Sofala. In 900 Burzurg ibn Shahriyar a merchant and navigator of the Persian Gulf wrote Kitab al-Ajaib al-Hind. Arab merchants from Oman sailed regularly to East Africa to search for slaves, purchase, and trade them. Burzurg wrote about sailing trips, and it talks about slave trading on the coast of East Africa. Here he wrote about a African King taken captive along with his companions, and was sold into slavery in Oman “When everything was in order, and the king knew of our intention to set sail, he accompanied us to the shore with several of his people, got into one of the boats and came out to the ship with us. He even came on board with seven of his companions. When I saw them there, I said to myself: In the Oman market this young king would certainly fetch thirty dinars, and his seven companions sixty dinars. Their clothes along are not worth less than twenty dinars. One way and another this would give us a profit of at least three thousand dinars, and without any trouble. Reflecting thus, I gave the crew their orders. They raised the sails and weighed anchor…When the day came, the king and his companions were put with the other slaves whose number reached about 200 head. He was not treated differently from his companions in captivity. The king said not a word and did not even open his mouth. He behaved as if we were unknown to him and as if we did not know him. When he got to Oman, the slaves were sold, and the king with them.”

The Chinese saw this also. In 1000 the Chinese traded with the coast of East Africa which they called Po-pa-li. They Chinese were aware of an early slave trade in the Indian Ocean. They were aware Black Africans of East Africa were kidnapped, and sold as slaves by Arabian, and Persian merchants. They traded with African slaves from Malindi, and sold them to China. “The country of Po-pa-li is in the southwestern sea. The people do not eat any of the five grains but east only meat. They often stick a needle into the veins of cattle and draw blood which they drink raw, mixed with milk. They wear no clothes except that they cover the parts below their loins with sheepskins. Their women are clean and of proper behaviour…If Persian merchants wish to go into their country, they collect around them several thousand men and present them with strips of cloth. All, whether old or young draw blood and swear an oath, and then only do they trade their products. From olden times they were not subject to any foreign country. In fighting they use elephants’ tusks and ribs and the horns of wild buffaloes as lances and they wear cuirasses and bow and arrows. They have twenty myriads of foot soldiers. The Arabs make frequent raids upon them.”
The author Idrisi (1110-1165) wrote “The Zanj are in great fear and awe of the Arabs, so much so that when they seen an Arab trader or traveler they bow down and treat him with great respect, and say in their language: ‘Greeting, O people from the land of the dates!’ Those who travel to this country steal the children of the Zanj with dates, lure them with dates, and lead them from place to place, until they seize them, take them out of the country, and transport them to their own countries. The Zanj people have great numbers but little gear. The ruler of the island of Kish in the sea of Umar raids the Zanj country with his ships and takes many captives.”
By the middle 11th century there was extensive slave trading from Ras Asir ‘the cape of slaves’, and Pemba to China for ceramics, and luxury goods.
In 1178 another Chinese author Chou Chu-fei wrote the travel account Ling-wai-tai-ta which described the slave trading in East Africa “There is an island in the sea on which there are many savages. Their bodies are black as lacquer and they have frizzled hair. They are enticed by food and then captured and sold as slaves to the Arabic countries, where they fetch a very high price. They are employed as gate-keepers, and it is said that they have no longing for their kinfolk…thousands of them are sold as foreign slaves.” “And it is said that they have no longing for their kinfolk?” Was this a lie white Arab Muslims created to convince the Chinese their slave raiding, and slave trading of Black Africans was alright?
During the 12th, and 13th centuries many Black African people were bought on the islands of Zanzibar, and Pemba, and then sailed to the Arabian peninsula where they were forced to find pearls in the Persian Gulf. In 1437 there were reports of Black East Africans being traded as slaves in western India. In 1486 Black African slaves in India began a revolt, and killed the Sultan of Bengal. They made their leader of the revolt their new sultan. But many of the rebels were later punished by being exiled to the Deccan region of India. Muslim slave raiders began raiding the interior traveling as far as Lake Victoria, and the Upper Congo. They marched large number of slaves chained together in groups for sailing transport to Zanzibar, and used on plantations, or shipped to Arabia, Iraq, Iran, and Turkey. In 1844 Muslim Arabs established a slave trading centre along the East African coast at Unyamwezi near Tabora in Tanzania.
From the late 18th century, and after African slaves were still being caught in jihads, transported, and sold in the markets of North Africa, and the Middle East. The 19th century Moroccan Muslim historian Ahmad ibn Khalid al-Nasiri (1834-97) wrote “a manifest and shocking calamity widespread and established since of old in the lands of the Maghrib-the unlimited enslavement of the blacks, and the importation of many droves of them every year for sale in the town and country markets of the Maghrib, where men traffic in them like beasts, or worse.” An Arab Muslim Tunisian traveler who visited Darfur at the beginning of the 19th century wrote about farms where Blacks were reproduced for sale “Certain rich people living in the town have installed these blacks from the mountains on their farms, to have them reproduce, and as we sell sheep and cattle, so they, every year, sell those of their children that are ready for this. There are some of them who own five or six hundred male and female slaves, and merchants come to them at all times, to buy male and female slaves chosen to be sold.” We were sold, and used as slaves in your own continent of Africa.

Unlike the Qur’an the Bible said slavery is an evil sin “We know that the law is good if one uses it properly. We also know that law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious; for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, for adulterers and perverts, for slave traders and liars and perjurers-and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine that conforms to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me.”
1 Timothy 1:8-11 The abolition movement began in late 18th century England when Christians like William Wilberforce made parliament stop the slave trade in their colonies across the Atlantic. Soon after other European countries ended slavery, and the slave trade in the early 19th century such as the Dutch, and French. Another Christian Dr. David Livingstone was able to travel to the inside of Africa. He saw how brutal the Arab slave trade was. He soon asked European politicians to end it. When European colonised Africa in the late 19th century they ended the Arab slave trade. The British sought to end the slave trade in the Ottoman Empire, and in 1890 the Ottoman Empire was forced to sign the Brussels Act which prohibited the slave trade in Africa.
The most popular slave routes were across the Sahara to Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia. From the Sudan down the Nile, or through the desert to Egypt, Arabia, and the Middle East, and from East Africa across the Red Sea, and Indian Ocean to Arabia, Iraq, Iran, India, southeast Asia, Malaysia, Indonesia, and China. Later when the Europeans colonised Africa, and suppressed the Muslim slave trade only Libya was not run by Europeans. The traditional slave routes across the Sahara changed. Later routes led from Kano to Tripoli, and from Darfur, and Waday to Kufra, and Cyrenaica. Libya became a main slave trading centre in the 19th century. They also gained Black slaves from Chad, and Nigeria, and exported them to the Ottoman Empire’s colonies in the Balkans, and Asia.

Despite British anti-slave trade ships watching the Mozambique Channel, Swahili Arabs, and Muslim Indians were able to still sail Black African slaves to Madagascar, Arabia, Oman, Masqat, the Middle East, and Muslim parts of India in the late 19th century, and early 20th century. But the British, French, and Italian control of the Horn of Africa stopped the Arab slave traders from sailing Black African slaves to Arabia, and across the Indian Ocean. Another important slave trade centre was the Hijaz of western Saudi Arabia along the Red Sea. Mecca is the holiest city in Islam. Medina is the second holiest city in Islam. Mecca, and Medina are in the Hijaz. In 765 a revolt of Black African slaves occurred in the second holiest city Medina in Arabia. Because Mecca, and Medina was in the Hijaz they could still practise slavery in the 19th, and 20th century when other European ruled Muslim countries could not. The Ottoman Turks ruled Arabia, and were forced by Europeans to stop slavery in many Ottoman colonies but it was not possible to allow the end of the slave trade in Mecca, and Medina, and all the Hijaz. The religious centres of Mecca, and Medina resisted the most against the end of slavery. They saw slavery a institution permitted by the Qur’an, hadiths, and tradition. In Jedda some Muslims protested to the religious leaders in Mecca against the abolition of slavery. They said it was a horrible Christian idea. They also protested against other Christian ideas such as women’s rights, and tolerating religiously mixed marriages. They found all these ideas to be anti-Islamic. In the late 19th century Black African slaves were sailed from East Africa, and imported to the Hijaz. Later they would be slave traded to the north, and even Egypt. Slavery did not end in Saudi Arabia until 1962. It ended in Yemen in 1962 also. It ended in 1952 in Qatar, and 1963 in United Arab Emirates, and 1970 in Oman. The last country to end it was Mauritania in 1980. Balkan Christians were made also slaves by Turks because they rebelled against Turkey to make their countries in the Balkans free from Turkey. They were later freed from slavery.

Muslim pirates from North Africa enslaved 1250000 Europeans for a few centuries. The European men served in the armies of North Africa, and rowed as slaves in their ships. The women became concubines. These Muslim pirates enslaved mostly the Spanish, Portuguese, southern French, Italians, and Greeks. They also enslaved the northern French, some of the English, and Irish, and even enslaved some Europeans from Iceland. In 1627 four Algerian ships attacked several coastal communities of Iceland. They carried 380 Icelanders into slavery in North Africa. In the 16th, and 17th centuries there were 40000 European slaves in the city Algiers. There were tens of thousands of European slaves in other North African cities also. Muslim Tatars, and Turks also enslaved more than a million Russians, and Ukrainians. In 1575 Tatars made a slave raid in Ukraine, and captured 35000 Ukrainians. They were taken to the slave markets in Kaffa in the Crimea, and the slave markets of Istanbul. In 1676 the Tatars captured 40000 more slaves in Ukraine to be sold in the slave markets of Istanbul. In 1688 they slave raided again, and captured 60000 slaves to be sold as slaves in Kaffa, and Istanbul.
By 1400 the Ottoman Muslim Turks colonised the Balkans, and conquered Constantinople in 1453. Today Constantinople is Istanbul, and it proves of Ottoman Turks colonial past. Before Europe traders would travel across the Middle East to reach India, and China. But because of dhimmi discriminating custom duties against Christians, and because the Ottomans colonised Byzantium the Ottomans made it more difficult for Christians to travel east through Muslim colonial lands to reach India, and China. This is why 39 years after the Muslim Turks colonised Constantinople Columbus searched for a new way to reach the Far East. European colonialism of the Americas was caused by the Muslim Ottoman Turks. In the 16th century the Muslim Ottoman Turks controlled a massive colonial empire in North Africa up to Morocco, some of Sudan, and Eritrea.
The Armenians gained independence from Muslim rulers in 886. The Muslim Turks killed more than 1000000 Armenians in the Armenian Genocide. They still will not admit to it. Everybody knows they did it but they will not admit it. The Ottoman Muslim Turks immigrated Muslims to the Balkans, and Divine Discrimination against the European Christians forced many to convert to Islam. Today the Balkan Peninsula suffers from conflict, war, and genocide. It is called Balkanisation. It is the Ottoman Muslim Turk’s fault.

If there were so many Black slaves in the Muslim world then why are there not so many Blacks today like the Americas? Many reasons include Black eunuchs. Before Black African slaves arrived in the Muslim world they were castrated. European slaves were also castrated. Another reason is the low birth rate, and high death rate among Black slaves in North Africa, and Arabia, the Middle East, the Ottoman Empire, and Persia. White Arab Muslims did not take good care of all Black slaves because sub Sahara Africa is next to North Africa, and the Middle East. It was easier for white Arab Muslims to renew their Black slaves.
