Slavery is allowed in Islam, however Islam encourages setting slaves free. The Quran provides for emancipation of a slave as a means of religious atonement for sins. 'Slavery in Islam' contains information about Islamic rulings concerning slavery, treatment of slaves, Manumission, and Umm Walad. It is part of the "Encyclopedia of Islamic Jurisprudence Concerning Muslim Women" series written by Yusuf Al-Hajj Ahmad. This series addresses those matters of life and religion that are essential in facilitating a woman's role as a mother, teacher and nurturer. Men can also read and benefit from this particular book because the information in this book is relevant to both males and females. It has two very important and distinct qualities:

1. Easy to read, succinct and direct. 

2. The 'question and answer' layout of the book is intended to facilitate effortless comprehensibility and swift memorization. 

It is in view of the 'questions and answers' format that the author has concluded this book to be easy to read and comprehensive, hoping that it will enable the Muslims to be well informed about matters concerning their religion which will in turn strengthen their faith.
