Could you please clarify for me something that has been troubling me for a while. This concerns the right of a man to have sexual relations with slave girls. Is this so? If it is then is the man allowed to have relations with her as well his wife/wives. Also, is it true that a man can have sexual relations with any number of slave girls and with their own wife/wives also? I have read that Hazrat Ali had 17 slave girls and Hazrat Umar also had many. Surely if a man were allowed this freedom then this could lead to neglecting the wife's needs. Could you also tell clarify whether the wife has got any say in this matter.

There is no longer need of slave girls brother. If she is not in islamic halal marriage than she is not your wife. Having any sexual relations with a woman that you have not been married to is considered zina and is punishable by hell fire. Neither the wife can have sexual relations with a servant or another man that is not her husband, for that is zina as well. I really donot believe that the companions of the prophet peace be upon him, had any slaves, they freed slaves didn't they, probably just servants. I sure know that man who commanded the caliphate did not cheat on his wife with his servants either, he's a great noble man. May Allah guide you brother and keep you on sirat al mustaqeem.
