10 Facts About The Arab Enslavement Of Black People Not Taught In Schools
By A Moore - June 2, 2014

The number of people enslaved by Muslims has been a hotly debated topic, especially when the millions of Africans forced from their homelands are considered.

Some historians estimate that between A.D. 650 and 1900, 10 million to 20 million people were enslaved by Arab slave traders. Others believe over 20 million enslaved Africans alone had been delivered through the trans-Saharan route alone to the Islamic world. Dr. John Alembellah Azumah estimates in his 2001 book "The Legacy of Arab-Islam in Africa" that over 80 million more Black people died over that route.

1. Arab Enslavers Practiced Genetic Warfare

The Arab slave trade typically dealt in the sale of castrated male slaves. Black boys between the age of 8 and 12 had their scrotums and joysticks completely amputated to prevent them from reproducing. About six of every 10 boys bled to death during the procedure, according to some sources, but the high price brought by eunuchs on the market made the practice profitable.

Some men were castrated to be eunuchs in domestic service, and the practice of neutering male slaves was not limited to only Black males. "The calipha in Baghdad at the beginning of the 10th Century had 7,000 black eunuchs and 4,000 white eunuchs in his palace,” writes author Ronald Segal in his 2002 book "Islam's Black Slaves: The Other Black Diaspora."

10 Facts About The Arab Enslavement Of Black People Not Taught In Schools (Part 2).
By A Moore - June 2, 2014

2. Arab Slave Trade Inspired Arab Racism Toward Blacks

It's important to note that Arab is not a racial classification; an Arab is almost like an American in that people classified as Arab today could be Caucasian (white people), Asiatic or even Arabized Africans. In the beginning there was some level of mutual respect between the Blacks and the more lighter-skinned Arabs. However, as Islam and the demand for enslaved Blacks grew, so did racism toward Africans.

As casual association with Black skin and slave began to be established, racist attitudes towards Blacks began to manifest in Arabic language and literature. The word for slave —abid — became a colloquialism for African. Other words, such as haratin, express social inferiority of Africans.

3. Arab Enslavers Targeted Women For Rape

The eastern Arab slave trade dealt primarily with African women, maintaining a ratio of two women for each man. These women and young girls were used by Arabs and other Asians as concubines and menials.

A Muslim slaveholder was entitled by law to the sexual enjoyment of his slave women. Filling the harems of wealthy Arabs, African women bore them a host of children.

This abuse of African women would continue for nearly 1,200 years.

See picture depicting Arabs enslaving African women as concubines below:

5. Trade
The Arab slave trade in the 19th century was economically tied to the European trade of Africans. New opportunities of exploitation were provided by the transatlantic slave trade and this sent Arab slavers into overdrive.
The Portuguese (on the Swahili coast) profited directly and were responsible for a boom in the Arab trade. Meanwhile on the West African coast, the Portuguese found Muslim merchants entrenched along the African coast as far as the Bight of Benin. These European enslavers found they could make considerable amounts of gold transporting enslaved Africans from one trading post to another, along the Atlantic coast.


6. The Arab Slave Trade Sparked One of The Largest Slave Rebellions in History
The Zanj Rebellion took place near the city of Basra, located in present-day southern Iraq, over a period of fifteen years (A.D. 869–883). The insurrection is believed to have involved enslaved Africans (Zanj) who had originally been captured from the African Great Lakes region and areas further south in East Africa.
Basran landowners had brought several thousand East African Zanj people into southern Iraq to drain the salt marshes in the east. The landowners forced the Zanj, who generally spoke no Arabic, into heavy slave labor and provided them with only minimal subsistence. The harsh treatment sparked an uprising that grew to involve over 500,000 enslaved and free men who were imported from across the Muslim empire.

just because all the Arabs(maybe less than 50) you've met treated u badly, that doesn't mean they are all bad people. Only if you know most many students from Nigeria studying in Saudi Arabia are under scholarships, provided by Arabs. Arabia indigenous students treats black with respect. Only if you know many of our Islamic scholars are usually invited to Arabia to lecture. Before and after the prophet era(peace be upon him), there have always been slavery, even now, human trafficking. But, Never say the prophet promotes slavery, he never permitted it. Racism is a vice common to all human race, even some white chistains abroad discriminates and dispose black Christians a lot.

listen to this man to your peril. You guys are taught to tell lies. Like I said I would always love and show respect to them but to tell me they bequeath such to me is a lie from the pit of hell. I have researched and read widely about you guys. Why is europe against them because they refuse to integrate note the word refuse. The only time an Arab would like you is when you convert to islam if not they would despise you and discriminate against you. I repeat listen to this liar at your own peril.

The only country that is totally against Islam is China(we also heard Bible has been banned in the country), Muslims are very much in Europe. Though atheist dominates the country, just like U.S, but U.S and U.K are are in good relationship with Arabia. If only you know that Saudi Arabia harbours lots of Christians. Just like you love your religion more than any other religions, they love Muslim more than Christians. But, Islam doesn't permit us to hate any body. Your Bible states; you shouldn't yoke with people of other religions. I.e try and avoid any relationship with people of other religions, if you are a true Christian, you wouldn't be Quoting me.

please let me not use video evidence to react because i would be banned from this forum. Do you even know what is hatred? Don't stay in Nigeria and talk what you don't know. There is no debate about this issue. I know Arabs more than you do, i even prefer the pakistanis and bangladesh and even nigerian muslims than Arabs.
