Early Muslims, Captivity and Sexual Ethics (Event)

This presentation explores classical Islam’s sexual mores on female prisoners of war. Highlights include:
• The condemnation and tolerance of concubinage in early Muslim law and ethics.
• The ethical boundaries around female war captives in early Islam.
• Orthodox readings on the Qur’anic term: “what your right hands possess”.
• The influence of Persian “harem” customs on medieval Arab court/palace culture.

An extended Q&A will follow.
Friday 5th Dec, Room: G3, 8pm
