Women Are 'Merely Property' in ISIS's Guide for Slave Owners

The terrorist army of the Islamic State (ISIS) has issued an explicit sex guide to instruct its fighters on what it calls the Islamic rules for sexual intercourse with female slaves.

"It was presumably released in response to the uproar caused by the many reports this summer that ISIS had taken Yazidi girls and women as sex slaves," said the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), which obtained a copy of the manual.

ISIS is believed to be holding as many as 5,000 women and children of the minority Yazidi sect who were kidnapped in early August and are being held in the terrorist capital of Raqqa, Syria.

The document, issued by the ISIS "Department for Prisoners and Women’s Affairs," explains which women can be held as slaves, when they can be beaten and when minor girls can be raped, among other rules for slave owners.

"Written in the form of questions and answers, it clarifies the position of Islamic law (as ISIS interprets it) on various relevant issues, and states, among other things, that it is permissible to have sexual intercourse with non-Muslim slaves, including young girls, and that it is also permitted to beat them and trade in them," MEMRI added.

Among the less lurid rules, the manual says Islam allows a slave owner to sell his captives, but he cannot separate a mother from her young daughter until the daughter becomes an adult.

"It is permissible to buy, sell, or give as a gift female captives and slaves, for they are merely property," the document says.

The manual goes into some detail about disposing of the slaves of dead terrorists.

"Female captives are distributed as part of his estate, just as all [other parts] of his estate [are distributed]," it says.

A runaway slave has committed the "gravest of sins," but sharia law proscribes no "earthly punishment," the manual notes. She can be reprimanded, it adds.

The Telegraph newspaper in London reported that the department is headed by a terrorist known as Abu Suja. It enforces decisions made by the Shura Council, a religious advisory body that is supposed to study the Koran and interpret Sharia law. The members are appointed by ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
