Hey Tom. Thank you for your comment.

I'm not sure if I understood you clearly. I think you say that the effort/desire to abolish slavery was a product of Western culture. Do you mean that the 'civilization' that segregated people according to their skin colors and brought slavery was also responsible for its abolition? If this is what you mean, it seems to me like Victor Frankenstein, who created a monster and spent his whole life killing it because his creation exceeded his capability to control it.

P.S.: Islam, as dictated by merely God, is a religion of tolerance, kindness, and love towards human beings. As corrupted by dogmatic persons and often reflected in Western media, Islam is a violent religion that has nothing to do with the real belief system. Considering Islam as only belonging to God and each individual, I don't see how it wouldn't include a moral argument against slavery and racism. Or perhaps, it does not involve those arguments because Islam hasn't created a product of slavery and racism.

If I misunderstood something, please feel free to dispute my words.

Thank you for reading it.
