Tomorrow is Black Friday, a day for shopping in America.
Sadly its not exciting but inhuman. In 1834 a young black slave was worth $800 for life to work in plantation and slavery. The prices were from $200 to 800 for various ages from 2 years to 55 years.
See tax list of owners in Perry county, Missoury, US 1934.
The auction use to be held next day of Thanks giving Thursdays, ie. called BLACK FRIDAY.
Black slaves used to stand in ground , hands roped and auctioned by land lords at that time. It was the darkest side of our earth.
But more sad is that the slavery practice is still going on in middle east and S. arabia. Arabs and their companies import third world labor with contract price. Their passport are held so that they cant run or leave country.
Slavery was common before and after islam even in Medinah. Rich use to have slaves, after islam when they were happy use to free some slaves.
As i know, plz correct me, slavery was not haram then and now in Quran.
Slavery on men, women and children still going on in various villages of Sind and Punjab by land lords against loans or by tradition. They are chained and kept prisoners in private jails for disobedience or defaults.
