From Islamic and Christian Perspectives

Publisher's Preface to the First Edition
Slavery is one of the oldest evils of society which defied the attempts of reformers for somany centuries. Ancient civilisations could not eradicate slavery, so they compromised withit. Some of these civilisations even patronised slavery. The Christian churches participated inslave-trade. Their priests blessed the ships carrying human cargo and admonished the slavesto be obedient, but never urged the masters to be kind. As late as 1970, Roman Catholicspurchased 1500 Indian girls because European girls did not like to live as nuns. Among all thereligions it was only Islam that attacked the very foundations of this evil. But it is the irony of the history that the people who nourished slavery, supported it, and derived benefit from it,later became champions of its abolition.'Allamah Sayyid Sa'eed Akhtar Rizvi, the Chief Missionary of Bilal Muslim Mission of Tanzania has very ably and painstakingly written this book. Like a research scholar that he is,he has objectively treated the theme of this book. He has marshalled fact after fact fromhistory; quoted from the Holy Qur'an, the traditions, and contemporary writers on the subject;and cited Islamic and ancient laws. He has clearly and vividly shown that Western civilisationis not so great a champion of emancipation of slaves as it poses to be. In fact this book willprove to he an eye-opener for those who blindly nod in approval to the propaganda aboutWestern humanism.Peermahomed Ebrahim Trust proudly presents this volume to the readers and hopes that itwill gain approval of the public.Trustees,Peermahomed Ebrahim Trust Karachi, Pakistan15 Jamadi I, 139227 June, 1972
