  1. The Research and Fatwa Department of the Islamic State (ISIS) has released a
  2. pamphlet on the topic of female captives and slaves. The pamphlet, which is
  3. dated Muharram 1436 (October/November 2014) and was printed by ISIS's
  4. publishing house, Al-Himma Library, is titled_ Su'al wa-Jawab fi al-Sabi wa-
  5. Riqab_ ("Questions and Answers on Taking Captives and Slaves"). It was
  6. presumably released in response to the uproar caused by the many reports this
  7. summer that ISIS had taken Yazidi girls and women as sex slaves. Written in
  8. the form of questions and answers, it clarifies the position of Islamic law
  9. (as ISIS interprets it) on various relevant issues, and states, among other
  10. things, that it is permissible to have sexual intercourse with non-Muslim
  11. slaves, including young girls, and that it is also permitted to beat them and
  12. trade in them.

  21. **"Question 1: What is a_l-sabi_?**
  23. "Al-Sabi is a woman from among _ahl al-harb_ [the people of war] who has been
  24. captured by Muslims.
  26. **"Question 2: What makes a_l-sabi_ permissible?**
  28. "What makes _al-sabi_ permissible [i.e., what makes it permissible to take
  29. such a woman captive] is [her] unbelief. Unbelieving [women] who were captured
  30. and brought into the abode of Islam are permissible to us, after the imam
  31. distributes them [among us]."
  33. **"Question 3: Can all unbelieving women be taken captive?**
  35. "There is no dispute among the scholars that it is permissible to capture
  36. unbelieving women [who are characterized by] original unbelief [_kufr asli_],
  37. such as the _kitabiyat_ [women from among the People of the Book, i.e. Jews
  38. and Christians] and polytheists. However, [the scholars] are disputed over
  39. [the issue of] capturing apostate women. The consensus leans towards
  40. forbidding it, though some people of knowledge think it permissible. We [ISIS]
  41. lean towards accepting the consensus…"
  43. **"Question 4: Is it permissible to have intercourse with a female captive? **
  45. "It is permissible to have sexual intercourse with the female captive. Allah
  46. the almighty said: '[Successful are the believers] who guard their chastity,
  47. except from their wives or (the captives and slaves) that their right hands
  48. possess, for then they are free from blame [Koran 23:5-6]'..."
  50. **"Question 5: Is it permissible to have intercourse with a female captive immediately after taking possession [of her]? **

  70. "It is forbidden to have intercourse with a female captive if [the master]
  71. does not own her exclusively. One who owns [a captive] in partnership [with
  72. others] may not have sexual intercourse with her until the other [owners] sell
  73. or give him [their share]."

  81. "Female captives are distributed as part of his estate, just as all [other
  82. parts] of his estate [are distributed]. However, they may only provide
  83. services, not intercourse, if a father or [one of the] sons has already had
  84. intercourse with them, or if several [people] inherit them in partnership."
  86. **"Question 11: May a man have intercourse with the female slave of his wife? **

  95. exclusively."
