The Rapists of Islamic State

Sahih Muslim 3371—We went out with Allah’s Messenger on the expedition to the Bi’l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women; and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them. So we decided to have sexual intercourse with them but by observing azl (withdrawing the male sexual organ before emission of semen to avoid conception). But we said: We are doing an act whereas Allah’s Messenger is amongst us; why not ask him? So we asked Allah’s Messenger, and he said: It does not matter if you do not do it, for every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born.
Sahih al-Bukhari 4138—We went out with Allah’s Apostle for the invasion of Bun Al-Mustaliq and we received captives from among the Arab captives and we desired women and celibacy became hard on us and we loved to do coitus interruptus [same as "azl" above]. So when we intended to do coitus interruptus, we said: "How can we do coitus interruptus before asking Allah’s Apostle who is present among us? We asked (him) about it and he said: "It is better for you not to do so, for if any soul till the Day of Resurrection is predestined to exist, it will exist."
Sahih Muslim 3384—Jabir bin Abdullah reported that a person asked Allah’s Apostle saying: I have a slave-girl and I practice azl with her, whereupon Allah’s Messenger said: This cannot prevent that which Allah has decreed. The person then came (after some time) and said: Messenger of Allah, the slave-girl about whom I talked to you has conceived, whereupon Allah’s Messenger said: I am the servant of Allah and His Messenger.

The purity of Islam as it was revealed by the Prophet Mohammad and the example he set through bloody conquest and slavery, and rape of girls and women whom Muslims were informed were their personal possessions,is being repeated to the present day among jihadists. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant prides itself on the purity of its brand of Islam. Daesh is notorious for its brutality and its sanctimony, proud of its exploits reflecting historical Islamist advances in conquering non-Muslim tribes, and making off with their women and their children after slaughtering the men.

The plight of the Yazidis of Iraq in particular has demonstrated the seriousness with which Daesh takes its entitlements as brutal oppressors and Hadith-inspired slave-masters and rapists. Girls and women who have escaped their captivity tell their personal harrowing stories of sex-slavery, their victimization by men who view captured women and girls as their rewards for zeal in persecuting and terrorizing despised non-Muslim ethnic minorities.

The ISIL terrorists acquire their slaves through slave markets where captured, helpless women and children are displayed and prices of acquisition placed on them, giving opportunities to ISIL fighters to become owners of female bodies, deliberately oblivious of the fact that with the body is an individual, a human being with a mind and emotions in whom their plight has instilled well-earned trepidation and fear for what the future holds.

In Islamic law, popularly cited by Islamic State, a man has the obligation to make certain the woman he has acquired as a slave is not pregnant; only then may he have intercourse with her. This is the manner in which Islamic State has interpreted sexual slavery based on the Prophet Mohammad's own practice. Hundreds of the thousands of captured and enslaved Yazidi women managed to escape their imprisonment as slaves and they have described the agony they were forced to undergo.

Doctors examining some of the escapees have observed that among the 700 rape victims of the Yazidi ethnic group seeking treatment at a United Nations-linked clinic, five percent became pregnant during the period of their slavery. Dr. Nagham Nawzat, the gynecologist involved in the examinations noted that the normal fertility rate for a young woman falls between 20 and 25 percent.

One captured teenage girl who later escaped had been sold no fewer than seven times among the Daesh jihadis. Anyone interested in acquiring her as a sex trophy asked first whether she was pregnant, whereupon her current owner would proffer as proof, a box of birth control pills. The third man who bought her asked her the date of her last menstrual cycle, ordered her to take a morning-after pill, administered a syringe of Depo-Provera, then raped her.

Thousands of women and girls of the Yazidi sect remain captives of this soul-destroying group of psychopathic religious fanatics, since their abduction from their ancestral homeland near Mount Sinjar in 2014. While hundreds have since managed their escape, their futures remain uncertain, living among their communities in tents, as refugees. One 18-year old, initially slave to the ISIL governor of a city in northern Iraq, described her experience: "Each month he made me get a shot. On top of that he also gave me birth control pills. 'We don't want you to get pregnant'", she was told.

When she was sold again, to a fighter in another Syrian city, the man's mother took her to the hospital. This woman informed her son with huge enthusiasm that the Yazidi girl was not pregnant, in this way validating his right to rape her. Even sex with a child is permitted, according to a pamphlet published by Daesh, asserting that it is 'legal' for a man to rape a woman he enslaves, under any circumstances.
