Islamic vs Christian view of slavery

Wikipedia : Ma malakat aymanukum

Al-Muminun 6 and Al-Maarij 30 both, in identical wording, draw a distinction between spouses and "those whom one's right hands possess" (female slaves), saying " أَزْوَاجِهِمْ أَوْ مَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَانُهُمْ" (literally, "their spouses or what their right hands possess"), while clarifying that sexual intercourse with either is permissible regardless of consent. The female slave may be punished if she doesn't consent.

Spanish Colonies : if a master has sex with a female slave outside marriage, he ows her freedom, as he has proven himself a slave of his passions.

Spanish Mainland : slavery not allowed./HGL
