Slavery from Islamic and Christian Perspectives
Allamah Sayyid Sa'eed Akhtar Rizvi - XKP
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Slavery is one of the oldest evils of society, Ancient civilizations could not eradicate slavery, so they compromised with it. Allamah Sayyid Sa'eed Akhtar Rizvi, the Chief Missionary of Bilal Muslim Mission, marshalled fact after fact from history; 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 civilization is not so great a champion of emancipation of slaves
as it poses to be. In fact this book will prove to he an eye-opener for those who
blindly nod in approval to the propaganda about Western humanism.
