by Hazrat Mirza Bashir Ahmad, M.A.(ra)
In Islam and Slavery, Hazrat Mirza Bashir Ahmad(ra) writes a preeminent treatise on how Islam came to not only end the practice of human slavery, but also to break down the institutional structures and prejudices that uphold slavery. Citing the Qur’an and the exemplary life of Prophet Muhammad(sa), Islam and Slavery masterfully addresses the allegations of critics of Islam, and the behaviors of extremist clerics. The author demonstrates that in Islam the only slavery is one of a worshiper’s submission to God—never of a person over another.
