Bilal and slavery in Islam

There are many believers who incorrectly state that Abu Bakr brought Bilal from his slavery master who was torturing him for converting to Islam, and “set him free”. Such a romantic story, but that is not true.

While Bilal was now safe, enjoyed a very respectable status with the prophet, and helped with multiple wars, he was never freed as the authentic hadith below shows him, after Muhammad had died, begging Abu Bakr to free him!

The bottomline, Islam NEVER banned slavery. It encouraged good treatment of slaves, and freeing them is considered a good deed (only if they convert to Islam). In fact, the hadith that Muhammad explains the meaning of  “Muslims are the best people”  in the Quran says:

Sahih al-Bukhari 4557
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Verse:–“You (true Muslims) are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind.” means, the best of peoples for the people, as you bring them with chains on their necks till they embrace Islam.

any religion that justifies owning, selling, buying, and in many cases abusing other humans has no grounds to talk about morality. Plus, we see how Arabs treat migrants with some rights, don’t give me bullshits. If you Google, slavery in Islam and look at images – you will see ALL the historical drawings by Muslims and none Muslims show forced slavery and systematic abuse. Finally, explain, how UN was able to ban slavery in 20 years and Allah/Quran could not in 1350? Who is better Allah or UN?

You want to see a documentary from 1964 showing how slaves were being sold in Mecca and around the Middle East? Check this link:

Remember, Islam without lies, dies!

Due to popular demands, I have decided to set up an online blog with all the memes you will need to source. The memes are intended to be fun, touches of humour, and informative. Every year many people like you and me, leave Islam. The US reports that 23% of American born Muslims have left Islam, 18% of British Muslims have left Islam, BBC reported in 2019 that 18% of Arabs see themselves are irreligious with the rate as high as 30% among the youth. This page is intended mainly to translate the many atheist Arabic memes that are shared in the Arabic social media such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Islamophobic content will not be tolerated! Content that challenges the teachings of the Quran, Hadith, Serat (story) of Mohammad, and Islamic teachings are all welcomed.
