From what I can find...Yes. However, every reference I could find mentions that when he received slaves he freed them. They often chose to stay with him as his servant. At least that's the story that has been told throughout the years.
Muslims are required to never disagree with Muhammad and to show him as much devotion as they possibly can.
Stories that he freed his slaves apon receiving them are most likely sugar coated.
"The Qur'an, like the Old and the New Testaments, assumes the existence of slavery. It regulates the practice of the institution and thus implicitly accepts it. The Prophet Muhammad and those of his Companions who could afford it themselves owned slaves; some of them acquired more by conquest."
Prophet Muhammad, the Islamic faith's final messenger, left an undeniable impact on the world. Take this quiz to learn about extraordinary events from his life. All information is gleaned from contemporary and near-contemporary sources.
