If the Prophet (PBUH) had not wanted this, then what went wrong?

Islamic Slavery? – Text and Context

26th November 2020
Event Start Date:
2nd December 2020
Event End Date:
2nd December 2020
Event Venue:

On Wednesday, December 2nd, the e-circle will cover the challenging topic of slavery.

20:15-21:00 Everyone welcome
21:00-21:20 Campus only circle

Our romanticized conceptions of Islam might imagine the religion having nothing to do with slavery.

When confronted with the uncomfortable reality that for centuries, Islam was inseparable from slavery, our reactions can be denial, anger or even crises of faith.

We can only have authentic and robust iman if we accept these historical realities and then find nuanced ways of coming to terms with them.
