The Doctrine of Slavery: An Islamic Institution

Bill Warner

The Doctrine of Slavery: An Islamic Institution by Bill WarnerThe modern historical theory of slavery is that white men brought Africans to the Western hemisphere, where they were sold for profit and put to work as slaves.

The foundation for this business was the...

In The Doctrine of Women learn: about the small details of Mohammed in his home and bedroom where jealousy raged in his harem; how wife beating became a part of Islam after his move to Medina; how the Koran changed the laws of adoption so Mohammed could enjoy his daughter-in-law as a new...
