Question : I understand that it is a practice that was not forbidden by the Prophet (saws) but regulated towards its gradual disappearance. I also understand that during the times of war the rules regarding slavery would apply. But my question is: what is the ruling on slavery in our times in which the related conditions present in the Prophet's (saws) times no longer exist? Is it halal or haram to have slaves this day and age?
Answer : The religious laws that concern slavery that Allah almighty has legislated did not change and was not altered but its subjects are no longer exist in our time which made such laws not practical.
