Islamisk menneskesyn

Forbrydelse og straf, islam — Drokles on May 23, 2008 at 9:43 am

Islam understøtter jo som bekendt slaveri som livsform og en religiøs moral har, som selv venstrefløjen vil vide, implikationer for samfundet. Fra Politiken

[Nour Miyatis, asiatiske gæstearbejder i Saudi-Arabien] blev en af de mere end en million asiatiske kvinder, der tager en tørn i det rige olieland for at tjene penge.

I mandags blev hun efter en tre år lang retssag idømt en erstatning på 2.500 saudiske riyal (3.200 kr.) for mere end et års mishandling, hvor hun blev tævet og forsømt så brutalt, at hun fik en tand slået ud og et øje permanent skadet og mistede flere fingre og tæer på grund af ubehandlet koldbrand.

Værtsparret, der mishandlede hende, slipper for yderligere straf, afgjorde dommeren. En tidligere dom på 35 piskeslag til hendes husmor, der havde erkendt mishandlingen, blev ophævet.

Kendelsen har rystet aktivister både i og uden for Saudi-Arabien.

»Denne uhyrlige dom sender et farligt signal til saudiarabiske arbejdsgivere om, at de ustraffet kan tæve deres hushjælp, og at ofrene ikke har noget videre håb om retfærdighed«, siger Nisha Varia, der har fulgt sagen for organisationen Human Rights Watch, i en pressemeddelelse.

Både Varia og flere andre aktivister påpeger, at Miyatis sag ikke er enestående. Mange tusinde  bliver udsat for umenneskelig behandling – fra slavearbejde og indespærring over mishandling til voldtægt og endda mord. 

Jeg er overrasket over at der overhovedet er tale om erstatning, men jeg lider jo også af tidens fobi og tiltror derfor islam værre egenskaber end den åbenbart har. Det hedder videre i artiklen

Der er anslået mellem en og halvanden million udenlandske tjenestefolk i Saudi-Arabien fra især Indonesien, Filippinerne, Sri Lanka og Bangladesh. Dertil kommer mange andre i resten af Golfområdet, der ofte kan fortælle de samme historier.

I en af de mere bizarre sager frikendte en appeldomstol i nabolandet Kuwait for tre uger siden et saudiarabisk ægtepar for mord på deres hushjælp.

Parret havde forklaret, at pigen havde begået selvmord i deres hus, men at de frygtede en retssag for mord, fordi husmoderen havde tævet hende. Derfor kørte de hende ud i en nærliggende ørken og begravede hende, men så dårligt, at en hånd stak op, så liget blev fundet, skriver avisen Kuwait Times.

Til trods for at parret erkendte at have øvet vold mod tjenestepigen, blev begge pure frifundet af en appelret. 

Som sagt har de det ikke fra fremmede. Fra Koranen og Hadith

 The Qur’an:

Sura (33:50) - “O Prophet! We have made lawful to thee thy wives to whom thou hast paid their dowers; and those (slaves) whom thy right hand possesses out of the prisoners of war whom Allah has assigned to thee”  This is a special command that Muhammad handed down to himself, allowing himself virtually unlimited sex.  Others are limited to four wives, but may also have sex with an unlimited number of slaves, as the following verse make clear:

Sura (23:5-6) - “..who abstain from sex, except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or (the captives) whom their right hands possess…”   This verse allows the slave-owner to have sex with his slaves.  See also Sura (70:29-30).

Sura (4:24) - “And all married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess.”  Even sex with married slaves is permissible.

Sura (24:32) - “And marry those among you who are single and those who are fit among your male slaves and your female slaves…”  Breeding slaves based on fitness.

Sura (2:178) - “O ye who believe! Retaliation is prescribed for you in the matter of the murdered; the freeman for the freeman, and the slave for the slave, and the female for the female.”  The message of this verse, which prescribes the rules of retaliation for murder, is that all humans are not created equal.  The human value of a slave is less than that of a free person (and a woman’s worth is also distinguished from that of a man’s).

From the Hadith:

Bukhari (80:753) - “The Prophet said, ‘The freed slave belongs to the people who have freed him.’” 

Bukhari (52:255) - The slave who accepts Islam and continues serving his Muslim master will receive a double reward in heaven.

Bukhari (41.598) - Slaves are property.  They cannot be freed if an owner has outstanding debt, but rather used to pay off the debt.

Bukhari (62:137) - An account of women taken as slaves in battle by Muhammad’s men after their husbands and fathers were killed.  The woman were raped with Muhammad’s approval.

Bukhari (34:432) - Another account of females taken captive and raped with Muhammad’s approval.  In this case it is evident that the Muslims intend on selling the women after raping them because they are concerned about devaluing their price by impregnating them.  Muhammad is asked about coitus interruptus.

Bukhari (47.765) - A woman is rebuked by Muhammad for freeing a slave girl.  The prophet tells her that she would have gotten a greater heavenly reward by giving her to a relative (as a slave).

Bukhari (34:351) - Muhammad sells a slave for money.  He was thus a slave trader.

Bukhari (72:734) - Some contemporary Muslims in the West, where slavery is believed to be a horrible crime, are reluctant to believe that Muhammad owned slaves.  This is just one of many places in the Hadith where a reference is made to a human being owned by Muhammad.  In this case, the slave is of African descent.

Muslim 3901 - Muhammad trades away two black slaves for one Muslim slave.

Muslim 4112 - A man freed six slaves on the event of his death, but Muhammad reversed the emancipation and kept four in slavery to himself.  He cast lots to determine which two to free.

Bukhari (47:743) - Muhammad’s own pulpit - from which he preached Islam - was built with slave labor on his command.

Bukhari (59:637) - “The Prophet sent Ali to Khalid to bring the Khumus (of the booty) and I hated Ali, and Ali had taken a bath (after a sexual act with a slave-girl from the Khumus). I said to Khalid, ‘Don’t you see this (i.e. Ali)?’ When we reached the Prophet I mentioned that to him. He said, ‘O Buraida! Do you hate Ali?’ I said, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘Do you hate him, for he deserves more than that from the Khumlus.’”  Muhammad approved of his men having sex with slaves, as this episode involving his son-in-law, Ali, clearly proves.  This hadith refutes the modern apologists who pretend that slaves were really “wives,” since Muhammad had forbidden Ali from marrying another woman as long as Fatima (his favorite daughter) was living.

Abu Dawud (2150) - “The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) sent a military expedition to Awtas on the occasion of the battle of Hunain. They met their enemy and fought with them. They defeated them and took them captives. Some of the Companions of the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) were reluctant to have intercourse with the female captives in the presence of their husbands who were unbelievers. So Allah, the Exalted, sent down the Qur’anic verse: (Sura 4:24) ‘And all married women (are forbidden) unto you save those (captives) whom your right hands possess.’”  This is the background for verse 4:24 of the Qur’an.  Not only does Allah grant permission for women to be captured and raped, but allows it to even be done in front of their husbands.

Ibn Ishaq (734) - A slave girl is given a “violent beating” by Ali in the presence of Muhammad, who does nothing about it.

Hvilken kontekst skal man dog forstå dette ind i, Jørgen Bæk?
