When was slavery abolished in Saudi Arabia?

.Books on Islamic topics can be found in the Eslamica Publishing House.

A slave is a person who is deprived of his personal freedom and who is viewed by another as his own. An important feature is holding the person against their will.

Islam forbids slavery and has advocated the abolition of slavery from the start. In those cases in which this was not yet possible, Islam tried both in the Holy Qur'an and through the statements of the Prophet Muhammad (s) to educate the slave owners to regard their slaves as human beings and to treat them so, to end slavery.

As long as Prophet Muhammad (s.) Could not establish the state in Medina and suffer from the persecution in Mecca himself, he tried to free slaves by buying them in feud. Well-known companions, such as Bilal and Zaid ibn Haritha, are ransomed slaves.

The liberation of a slave is considered to be such an honorable act in Islam that it can even be used to atone for the unintentional killing of a person (cf. Holy Qur'an 4:92).

Any claim by orientalists in the Western world that Islam would not forbid slavery essentially served to relativize their own history of slavery, which lasted more than a millennium after Islam, in the misused name of Christianity. Any claim that Prophet Muhammad (s.) Had engaged in slavery himself goes back either to the falsification of history by said orientalists or to falsifications of tradition in order to justify the injustice rule of the Umayyads and Abbasids, who also kept slaves in their palaces. Later dynasties carried on and practiced such falsifications in their own interest. Certain currents that misused the name of Islam, such as Wahhabism, have never distanced themselves from slavery. Saudi Arabia only abolished slavery in 1962.
