Is slavery allowed in Judaism and Christianity? Are sex slaves allowed in Judaism and Christianity?

26:22 And this (is the) favor with which you reproach me, that you have enslaved (the) Children of Israel." 26:23 Pharaoh said, "And what (is the) Lord (of) the worlds?"

(According to the Bible, in Leviticus 25:44-46, “Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property. You can bequeath them to your children as inherited property and can make them slaves for life, but you must not rule over your fellow Israelites ruthlessly.”. And according to Ephesians 6:5, “Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ.”. And according to 1 Peter 2:18, “Slaves, in reverent fear of God submit yourselves to your masters, not only to those who are good and considerate, but also to those who are cruel / unjust”)(So, slavery is allowed in Judaism and Christianity)(Allah knows best)

2:177 It is not righteousness that you turn your faces towards the east and the west but righteous is he who believes in Allah , the Last Day, the Angels, the Book, and the Prophets and gives wealth in spite of love for it to the near relatives, the orphans, the needy, the wayfarer, and those who ask, and in freeing the necks (slaves); and who establish prayer and give zakah and those who fulfill their covenant when they make it; and those who are patient in suffering, hardship, and periods of stress. Those are the ones who are true and it is those who are the righteous.

(In regard to sex slaves in Judaism and Christianity, according to Genesis 38:8, women must have relations with her husband’s brother, while in Islam women have no obligation or cannot be forced to have relations)(Women can divorce in Islam, but they cannot divorce in Christianity (Matthew 5:32); so, she could be oppressed or abused (e.g. raped) by her husband)(In Judaism and Christianity, in Deuteronomy 22:28-29, if a man rapes a girl, he must marry her forever and can never divorce; so, this could rather punish the victim, and the rapist would go unpunished. According to Numbers 31:17-18, “Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man”. This verse is in a context of slavery “save for yourselves”, and in a context of sex, because they take the virgin ones for themselves)(Allah knows best)

9:60 The charities are only for the poor, and the needy, and those who collect them, and those whose hearts are inclined, and in the (freeing of) the necks, and for those in debt and in the way of Allah, and the wayfarer - an obligation from Allah. And Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.

29:8 And We have enjoined upon man goodness to his parents, but if they both strive against you to make you associate with Me that of which you have no knowledge, then do not obey both of them. To Me is your return, and I will inform you about what you used to do.

(In Judaism and Christianity, even the children could be oppressed and killed by the parents; according to Deuteronomy 21:18-20, “If someone has a stubborn and rebellious son who does not obey his father and mother and will not listen to them when they discipline him, his father and mother shall take hold of him and bring him to the elders at the gate of his town. They shall say to the elders, “This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious. He will not obey us. He is a glutton and a drunkard.”. Then all the men of his town are to stone him to death. You must purge the evil from among you. All Israel will hear of it and be afraid.”)(Allah knows best)

90:10 And shown him the two ways? 90:11 But he has not attempted the steep path. 90:12 And what can make you know what the steep path is? 90:13 (It is) freeing a neck, 90:14 Or feeding in a day of severe hunger. 90:15 An orphan of near relationship, 90:16 Or a needy person in misery,

4:75 And what is with you that you do not fight in the way of Allah, and (for) those who are weak among men and women and children who say, "Our Lord, take us out of this town whose people are oppressors and appoint for us from Yourself a protector and appoint for us from Yourself a helper.

16:90 Indeed, Allah commands justice and good, and giving to relatives, and forbids immorality and bad and oppression. He admonishes you so that you may take heed.

4:24 And those women who are married except whom you rightfully possess. The decree of Allah upon you. And lawful to you are beyond these, that you seek them with your wealth desiring chastity, not lust. So for whatever you benefit from them, give them their bridal due as an obligation. And there is no sin on you concerning what you mutually agree to, beyond the obligation. Indeed, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.

(In regard to the mention of “what / those whom your right hands possess” in the Qur’an, they are not slaves or sex slaves. It is interpreted that those “women” who are “prohibited” in Verse 4:24 are believers, married to believers, while “whom you rightfully possess” might be married to disbelievers, so they might have been taken from disbelieving people, or they emigrated from disbelieving people to believing people (4:100, 8:72), so Muslims are in charge of them. It is a matter of protection of women, not slavery. Sex slaves are not allowed in the Qur’an; notice that Verse 4:24 does not exclude what you rightfully possess from marriage in order to have relations (this is confirmed by Verse 24:32). So, what your right hands possess”, who are already married, are not prohibited to Muslims for marriage, because if she is a believer, and is married to a disbeliever, then her marriage with a disbelieving man is nullified in Islam (60:10))(See also the link below “Is it allowed in Islam to have relations with maids/slaves without marrying? Is adultery permitted? Are sex slaves allowed in Islam?”)(Allah knows best)

12:30 And the women in the city said, "The wife of Aziz is seeking to seduce her slave boy; indeed, he has impassioned her with love. Indeed, we surely see her in clear error." ... 12:32 She said, "That (is) the one about whom you blamed me. And I certainly sought to seduce him, but he saved himself, and if he does not do what I order him, surely, he will be imprisoned and certainly will be of those who are disgraced.”

(In Islam, Joseph was a slave (12:30) and he disobeyed. He was averted from evil and immorality (12:24); and you can also disobey your parents (29:8), lest you commit a sin. While in Judaism and Christianity, you have to obey such people anyhow)(Allah knows best)
