Please support our effort to create a scholarly dialogue seeking a consensus (ijmāʻ) on the illegality of slavery and slave trading under Islamic law.

We are currently in Ramadan, the Islamic month of fasting, prayer, reflection and community. In Ramadan, Muslims discharge their religious obligation to give zakat or “alms,” to the poor and the needy. Among those specified by the Qur’an (verse 9:60) as eligible to receive zakat are slaves and those working for the emancipation of slaves.
This website is a zakat-eligible endeavor.
The maintenance of this website requires the expenditure of funds for the completion of an ongoing variety of tasks, including translation of texts, web design, maintenance, and development, fees for tax exemption and state charity registrations, banking charges and accounting fees, legal fees, and various other incidental expenses.
Whether you are Muslim or not, please consider donating to help support this website.
If the website is successful, we will help bring about a declaration of an ijmāʻ on the illegality of slavery under Islamic law. The promulgation of such a declaration will lead to the emancipation of many modern-day slaves in the Muslim world.
We have applied for a tax exemption under section 501(c)(3) of the internal revenue code. If and when our tax exemption is approved, which should be shortly, your donation will entitle you to a federal tax deduction for charitable giving. We will keep a record of your donation, and you should also keep a record. We will notify you as soon as we receive a decision on our tax exemption application from the Internal Revenue Service.
