Slavery in Islam
Mohammed was a write slave holder of and seller of slaves, including at least one black slave. First we will establish that Mohammed was white (which is not news to most Muslims), and then show from early Muslim sources, that he was a white slaveowner.
Mohammed Was White
The Hadiths are recorded sayings and doings recorded of the prophet Mohammed. They are accepted almost as highly as the Quran by most Muslims, the longest and most highly regarded Hadith was collected by Al-Bukhari.
"He [the Prophet] uncovered his thigh and I saw the whiteness of the thigh of the Prophet." Bukhari vol.1 book 8 ch.12 no.367 p.224
"Whenever the Prophet used to offer prayer he used to keep his arms away (from his body) so that the whiteness of his armpits was visible." Bukhari vol.1 book 12 ch.48 no.771 p.430. Bukhari vol.2 book 17 ch.20 no.140,141 p.77,78 are both similar. See also Bukhari vol.1 book 3 ch.7 no.63 p.54 and vol.2 book 17 ch.3 no.122 p.65.
Mohammed was of medium height, handsome, with slightly wavy hair and a wheat-colored complexion. Tirmidhi's Shamaa-il ch.1 no.2
Mohammed was of medium height, with slightly wavy hair. Tirmidhi's Shamaa-il ch.1 no.6
Mohammed had a white complexion, which was slightly reddish. Tirmidhi's Shamaa-il ch.1 no.13
Being red, yellow, black, or white does not make a person any better or worse. However the Black Muslim religion call all whites devils, and claims that Muhammad was black. Since he was white, the Black Muslim religion either lies, or one it claims to follow is a devil.
Mohammed's Black Slaves
"Narrated 'Umar: I came and behold, Allah's Apostle [Mohammed] was staying on a Mashroba (balcony room) and a black slave of Allah's Apostle was at the top of its stairs. I said to him, '(Tell the Prophet) that here is 'Umar bin Al-Khattab (asking for permission to enter)." Bukhari vol.9 book 91 ch.3 no.368 p.275
"he [Mohammad] was staying in an upper room of his to which he ascended by a ladder, and a black slave of Allah's Apostle [Mohammad] was (sitting) on the first step." Bukhari Hadith vol.6 book 60 ch.316 no.435 p.407.
Mohammad auctioned off a slave in Bukhari vol.3 book 46 ch.9 no.711 p.427; vol.9 book 89 ch.32 no.296 p.224
