- What is little discussed is how much sex drives Islam.
- Sex slavery has been a significant motivator for the spread of Islam.
It is most common for western analysts to be uncritical of Islam. One area that is barely discussed in general is the strong motivation of sex slavery that pushed Islam forward to conquer society. This sex slavery is found in the original Islamic sources of the Koran and Hadith. Sex slavery was endorsed by Mohammed and practiced by Mohammed and it is impossible for Muslims to question anything Mohammed did as he is presented as the “perfected human” to Muslims. In this article, you will learn how Islam has used sex slavery to promote the spread of Islam for 1400 years.

Sex as the Motivator for Islam
Sex is well known as part of the 72 virgins that are promised to Muslim men. The promise is that men will have eternal sex with 72 virgins who do nothing but make themselves available for sex and sing the man’s praises. This was clearly used to recruit men into fighting for the Islamic cause. Sex was also a primary motivator in the Prophet Muhammed’s life. Muhammed was known to sleep with each of his nine wives in a single night. He wed a 6-year-old Aisha (his favorite wife) and was having sex with her when she was nine years old. Of course, Islam allows for up to 4 wives (although this rule is often violated). The Koran is also clear that women found in the desert, if they are not accompanied, maybe raped. The entire setup of male and female relationships is that women are passive sex recipients of Muslim men. Muhammed stated that wives are the property of men, and they are to be plowed as a farmer plowed their fields. This is explained as follows.
“The 72 virgins or 72 houri (/ˈhʊəriz/; from Persian: حُـورِی, ḥūrī; plural of ‘ḥaurāʾ’ or’ḥūrīyah’; Arabic: حُـورِيَّـة) refers to a celestial being that is an aspect of Heaven or jannah (Arabic: جنّة ‘Jannah’; plural: Jannat). This concept is mentioned in Qur’anic text as a reward to believing men after death. According to the Quran, once in jannah, believers are wed to virgins with “full grown”, “swelling” or “pears-shaped” breasts. The Quran provides a physical and personal description of the houri and denotes them as awards to believers. Sahih (authentic) hadith detail the amount if houris and what they are for.
Orthodox Muslim theologians such as Al-Ghazali (1058 – 1111 CE) and Al-Ash’ari (874 – 935 CE) have discussed the rewards and pleasures found in heaven. Often scholars refer to hadiths that describe heaven as a slave market where there will be “no buy and sale, but… If any man will wish to have sexual intercourse with a woman, he will do at once.”” – Wikipedia
A Penis That Never Softens?
Each time we sleep with a Houri we find her virgin. Besides, the penis of the Elected never softens. The erection is eternal; the sensation that you feel each time you make love is utterly delicious and out of this world and were you to experience it in this world you would faint. Each chosen one [i.e. Muslim] will marry seventy [sic] houris, besides the women he married on earth, and all will have appetizing vaginas.
Al-Itqan fi Ulum al-Qur’an, p. 351
Sex Slavery as a Motivator for Islam
Secondly, it is history that Muslims were the major participants in sex slavery.
“In Islamic law (Sharia), Ma malakat aymanukum is the term for slaves or captives of war. The purchase of female slaves for sex was lawful from the perspective of Islamic law, and this was the most common motive for the purchase of slaves throughout Islamic history.” – Wikipedia
And this sex slavery is happening to this day.
“after ISIS overtook her village in August 2014, that dream died. Murad was captured, enslaved, sold, raped and tortured alongside thousands of her people in an effort to decimate their religion. Her new book, “The Last Girl: My Story of Captivity and My Fight Against the Islamic State” (Tim Duggan Books), out now, tells the story of how she and her family were living peacefully in the farming community of Kocho, near the Syrian border, when ISIS first rose to power.”
And the logic was explained to her very clearly that she needed to react appropriately as a sex slave to the Islamic State.
“On the way out of town, Murad, who was 21, screamed in an effort to stop one of the soldiers from grabbing her breast each time he walked by her on the bus. “Why did you scream?” a militant asked Murad. “I was scared,” she told him. “This guy . . . touched me. What do you think you are here for?” asked the commander. “You are an infidel, a sabiyya [sex slave] and you belong to the Islamic State now, so get used to it.” Then he spat in her face, took out a cigarette and extinguished it on her shoulder. He lit another one and put it out on her stomach. Then he slapped her twice across the face and warned: “Never make another sound again.”
The Islamic State has a rape manual.
Here is one example of it.
She paraphrases an Islamic State pamphlet which stated that “Sabiyya can be given as gifts and sold at the whim of the owner, for they are merely property.” Murad writes: “An owner can have sex with a prepubescent slave, it says, if she is ‘fit for intercourse.’ ”
And ISIS has a point. The Koran supports the rape of people who support other religions. This is used as a recruiting tool by ISIS, as is covered in the following quotation.
“I kept telling him it hurts — please stop,” said the girl, whose body is so small an adult could circle her waist with two hands. “He told me that according to Islam he is allowed to rape an unbeliever. He said that by raping me, he is drawing closer to God,” she said in an interview alongside her family in a refugee camp here, to which she escaped after 11 months of captivity.
The systematic rape of women and girls from the Yazidi religious minority has become deeply enmeshed in the organization and the radical theology of the Islamic State in the year since the group announced it was reviving slavery as an institution. Interviews with 21 women and girls who recently escaped the Islamic State, as well as an examination of the group’s official communications, illuminate how the practice has been enshrined in the group’s core tenets.
Murad has a very Islamic experience at the hands of the Islamic State.
“Over the next week, she was passed to six other men who raped and beat her, before being given to one who planned on taking her to Syria. But first he needed to buy her more clothing. Left alone for the first time in two weeks, she impulsively tried the front door. It didn’t budge. But Murad gave it one last shove and “nearly fell over when it swung open.” Her captor had, for reasons unknown, left it unlocked.”
Although Murad’s fate was better than that, the Islamic State gave the rest of her family.
“Murad’s struggle wasn’t over yet. As news filtered in with new arrivals to the camp, she eventually learned what had happened to her other loved ones. Her mother had been shot and buried in a shallow grave along with 85 other Yazidi women. Five of her brothers had been executed. Her nephew had been kidnapped by ISIS and would be brainwashed into fighting for them. Her two sisters were still in captivity.
Luckily, another one of her brothers was found in a hospital nearby. Murad refused to tell her three surviving brothers the details of her ordeal, knowing it would torment them to think of their wives, still in captivity, being raped. “I cried every day. When I dreamed, it was always about being returned to ISIS and having to escape again.””
Sex as a Motivator in Islam
Wherever one looks in Islam, whether in peace or war, sex seems to be used by Islam as a motivator.
“The promotion of sexual violence by the extremist group was a vital means of “attracting, retaining, mobilising and rewarding fighters” as well as punishing disbelievers.
The sexual exploitation of women and children alongside trafficking helped fund the caliphate and was used to lure men from deeply conservative Muslim societies, where casual sex is taboo and dating prohibited, the report claims.”
How is this different from how Muslim fighters are motivated by the story of 72 virgins? This is often disputed, but it can’t be disputed.
“Whilst there are numerous sources, including the Qur’an, which tell us believing males will be rewarded with virgins, many who are concerned about the authenticity of the 72 virgins concept are under the misconception that there is only one weak (da`if) reference to the exact number of houri given to them. These narrations are in fact found in many hadith collections with varying levels of authenticity, ranging from hasan (good) to sahih (authentic).
For example, in the Sunan Ibn Majah, one of the six major Hadith collections, it states in a hasan (good) narration that every male admitted into Paradise will be given eternal erections and wed to 72 wives, all with libidinous sex organs. Similarly in another hadith with multiple narrators that has been graded hasan (good), it states that the martyr (shahid) will be married to seventy-two of al-hoor al-‘iyn.” – Wikipedia
There is little debate that Islam has been leveraging and promising sex to its militant adherents since its inception. This is a big part of Islam. Islam supports raping slaves. In fact, Islam supports rape under a number of circumstances as covered in the article How Islam Constantly Endorses and Enables Rape and Rapists.
Sex slavery was historically a big motivator to sell, conquering non-believers in Islam. This, in part, what the whole promise of 72 virgins. As a man, you enter heaven with a penis that never goes flaccid, with the sex drive of a 30-year-old, and you have intercourse with a cadre of 72 virgins who never defecate or urinate or menstruate and who sing your praises. These promises were made to the bedouin, and they became aggressive warriors for Islam. This is like promising unending shopping, yoga, and tickets to Broadway shows to women. So prisoners of war rape combined with unending sex in the afterlife is how Islam spread so rapidly beginning in the 7th century.
It is curious how this goes without discussion. When Muslims are asked about this embarrassing history, they lie about it. They state that this is only in one Hadith. However, the promise of eternal sex in the afterlife has been a long-term Islam feature since its inception. There are many things hidden about Islam. Lying about Islam to non-believers is recommended in the Koran. We cover this lying in the article How Muslims Lie About Islamic Slavery.
Western audiences need to realize that Arab culture does not really have a concept of objectivity. There is no enlightenment in the thinking of Arab societies.
As pointed out by Dithia Sofyan.
There are similar delusions for women in the afterlife.
Several oceans and rivers made of fresh water, milk, honey, and alcoholic beverages (yes, you can drink alcohol in Heaven… and you can not get drunk).
Golden trees, rivers with pearl bottom, sky full of stars.
Golden palaces for pious people
People there will forever young, healthy, and good looking (even if they ugly or handicapped in life). They also not poop, peed, snoted, or spitted. And able to get whatever they wanted immediately.
And there is this distinctive smell, unlike anything in the mundane world. It called “Fragrance of Heaven”. There is many stories telling about when a truly good & pious Muslim died, the people who take care the deceased corpse smelling a some kind of fragrance when nobody yet apply any perfume or wearing perfume.
This can be seen as Islam telling its followers anything they need to tell them to get them to continue to believe. Whatever the lie is that it is necessary, Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Scientology tell it.
