                          Abstract

The present study is undertaken to study the status of slavery in Islam. The research aims to identify what Islam says regarding slavery. The research material has been taken from the different Internet websites and books. In this research, briefly I would like to tell you about the position and nature of slavery in Islam.

The focus has been on the status of slaves in Islam, their rights, what Islam says about the status of slave women and abolishen of slavery mainly through the efforts of Christians in England and America.
