According to Islamic Law, captive female prisoners are also part and parcel of the booty. One fifth of the booty has to be first distributed to the needy, orphans, etc. The remaining four-fifths should then be distributed among the soldiers who participated in the war. The distribution can only take effect after the booty is brought into Islamic territory. The Ameerul-Mu'mineen (Head of the Islamic State) remains the guardian of the female prisoners until he allocates them to the soldiers. Only after a soldier has been allotted a slave girl, and made the owner of her, will she become his lawful possession. After she spends a period called 'Istibraa', which is the elapse of one menstrual period, It becomes permissible for her owner to have relations with her. After possession of the slave too there are a number of other laws that affect the master and slave.
Mufti Ebrahim Desai, Ask-Imam.com, Question 14421
Women are your fields: go, then, into your fields whence you please.
Qur'an 2:223, Dawood
In the dark dungeons of the notorious Badush prison in Mosul in Northern Iraq, a thirteen year old Yazidi girl is chosen. Like many others, she is presented as a gift to one of the loyal Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) fighters, who just ransacked Sinjar. Her night that started with a kidnapping and incarceration was interrupted briefly by a beautician. The rape immediately followed. Her dark night started in June of this past summer and has not yet ended.
This scene is grim, but versions of it are being replayed across wide areas of Syria and Iraq. This same fate has befallen hundreds of others following ISIS’ takeover of their area. Yazidis in particular, a religious minority that is often viciously stereotyped and denigrated, and has been long persecuted, are vulnerable to ISIS’ confirmed practice of kidnapping Virgin girls and using them as sexual slaves and “rewards” for their fighters and allies.
ISIS has kidnapped an estimated 4,000 Iraqi girls and women from Yazidi and other minority groups (mostly Christian) for the purpose of selling them to locals or donating them to loyal jihadists. The kidnapped women and girls are generally separated into small groups. Their price varies between $25 and $1000. Some are as young as 12 years old. ISIS has beheaded 17 of them. There have been at least 11 reported cases of suicide, according to an email response from the Human Rights Department at Iraq’s Foreign Ministry to this writer. As described by Liz Sly of the Washington Post, only a conversion to Islam can “upgrade” the status of these captives from prison inmates to “comfort wives.” Those who make the choice are “promised a good life” with a house of their own and a Muslim husband.
In most cases, it is still considered as temporary marriage. Under such conditions, woman may find herself passed from one Holy Warrior to the other with absolutely no say in the matter. Her “marriage” may last an hour or a day. It is well known that there are legal Islamic religious laws which enshrine just such practices.
Other groups of kidnapped women are forced into sexual slavery at brothels run by militants of ISIS. The Brothels, operated by the female “police force” called the al-Khanssaa Brigade, have been set up for the use of ISIS militant. It is reported that the brothels are operated by British female jihadists. These women are using barbaric interpretations of the Islamic faith to justify their actions. They believe the militants can use these women as they please as they are non-Muslims. It is the British women who have risen to the top of the Islamic State’s Sharia police, and now they are in charge of this operation.
Who are the Yazidis?
* They are a pre-Islamic Kurdish sect who live in northern Iraq, Syria and Turkey.
* They say they have often faced persecution in Iraq because the chief angel they venerate as a manifestation of God is often identified as the fallen angel Satan in biblical terminology.
* The Yazidi religion is a syncretic combination of Zoroastrian, Manichaean, Jewish, Nestorian Christian and Islamic faiths.
* The Yazidi themselves are thought to be descended from supporters of the Umayyad caliph Yazid I.
* They believe that they were created separately from the rest of mankind, not even being descended from Adam, and they have kept themselves strictly segregated from the people among whom they live.
ISIS Sex Slave Market in Central London
In a controversial publicity stunt, Kurdish protesters took to the streets of London last week to draw attention to the slave-trade tactics of ISIS. The protest led a group of chained veiled women and encouraged passersby to bid for them in front of the Houses of Parliament, Leicester Square and Downing Street.
"This is what Shariah means," the speaker for the mock ISIS group belted from a megaphone at the first of three protests.
"This happens every day in Iraq and Syria. We are bringing it to you," he yelled while leading a group of four chained and veiled women in front of Westminster Square, followed by 20 protesters chanting “ISIS, ISIS, terrorists!”
Once the group reached the entrance to Westminster Hall the leader proceeded in encouraging passersby to bid on the captured women "to serve them, for their pleasure."
The speaker for the "ISIS" auctioneers boasted he had "Christian women, Muslim women, women from Kobane, from Raqqah, from Mosul," before beginning the bidding with 14-year-old Yasmin whom bidders were assured was "pure" and "a virgin."
Each of the women was "sold" for several hundred dollars before the protesters cleared and went home.
