This document consists of raw research notes on the subject of slavery in Reliance of the Traveller and the Hedaya. The chapter on slavery in Umdat al-Salik was not translated. The corresponding chapter in Hedaya was omitted as well, on the grounds of the abolition of slavery.
Of course we know that Muslims are still practicing slavery, both covertly and overtly. And many references remain in the texts.
Here you will find notes on the available information and the page numbers where it can be found. You will also find links to the texts. Unfortunately, the Hedaya is not suitable for OCR. The quotes are not very legible due to the archaic type face and quality of the scanned image. See:
