CHAPTER: COMPEL NOT YOUR SLAVE-GIRLS TO PROSTITUTION
Jabir reported that 'Abdullah b. Ubayy b. Salul used to say to his slave-girl: Go and fetch something for us by committing prostitution. It was in this connection that Allaah, the Exalted and Glorious, revealed this verse:" And compel not your slave-girls to prostitution when they desire to keep chaste in order to seek the frail goods of this world's life, and whoever compels them, then surely after their compulsion Allaah is Forgiving, Merciful" (xxiv. 33).
Jabir reported that 'Abdullah b. Ubayy b. Salul had two slave-girls; one was called Musaika and the other one was called Umaima and he compelled them to prostitution (for which'Abdullah b. Ubayy b. Salul compelled them). They made a complaint about this to Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) and it was upon this that this verse was revealed:" And compel not your slave-girls to prostitute" up to the words:" Allaah is Forgiving, Merciful."
