What Islam Really Teaches About Slavery

If you’re like me, you don’t know much about the details of Islam. I’ll hear critics of Islam quoting passages to show Islam is problematic, and I’ll hear imams quoting other passages to show it’s a religion of peace… but I haven’t found a really good source that talks about what Islam teaches about various issues — in context and without bias.

Imtiaz Shams, a co-founder of Faith to Faithless and someone we’ve featured on this site before, and his friend Nourhan are trying to fill that gap with a new series of videos discussing Islamic theology.

Their first episode focuses on what Islam teaches about slavery.
