Islamic State Fatwa Tells Slave Owner the 'Proper' Way to Rape Enslaved Women

New documents captured from the Islamic State in May have been released. The documents came from a large supply intercepted by U.S. Special Forces and deal with soldier treatment of female slaves. They include directives on the proper way to rape female slaves without violating Sharia Law.

The January 2015 ruling, known as a 'Fatwa No. 64,' issues instructions for male owners of female slaves. One rule says that both father and son slave owners cannot have sex with the same slave. Another says that if a man owns both a mother and her daughter, he may not have sex with both of them-- he must stick with one, or at least, one at a time as he is allowed to switch from one to the other.

According to Islamic scholars, Muslims are forbidden from holding slaves. Some 120 Muslims from all over the world penned an open letter to the IS, taking issue with the religious arguments the terrorist group uses to justify its actions.

"Islam preaches freedom to slaves, not slavery. Slavery was the status quo when Islam came around," said Professor Abdel Fattah Alawari, dean of Islamic Theology at Al-Azhar University. "...So Islam found this abhorrent practice and worked to gradually remove it.”

The IS is apparently not convinced of this. Raping females enslaved by fighters is not uncommon. According to escaped slaves, young women -- even female children as young as 12 -- are separated from older women and male slaves. They're then sold into sexual slavery, or given as prizes to soldiers.
