As the Quranic sharia tackles the topic of slaves, some people accuse Islam of endorsing and justifying slavery abolished by the European countries and the USA. These critics of Islam regarding that topic overlook the fact that enslavement has survived until now in different types despite being outlawed, and the West could not really abolish it entirely; rather, the problem has been exacerbated within contemporary slavery. We prove in this book that the Quranic solution to the problem of slavery is the ideal one. Details of this Quranic solution are discussed in this book that has begun as a series of articles that has provoked many comments that are so useful and important that we have decided to include them as part of this book.
