Summary: 

Hamed Abdul-Samad is right. Slavery is commonplace in Islamic history. Generally there were throughout history Muslim believers who believed themselves entitled to enslave non-Muslims, and did so, as I show in detail in my book .

“German-Egyptian Scholar Hamed Abdel-Samad: The Arabs Enslaved the Africans More Than Any Other Nation Did,” , May 27, 2018:

German Egyptian scholar Hamed Abdel-Samad dedicated an episode of his Box of Islam show to slavery in Islam. Abdel-Samad said that 29 verses in the Quran endorse slavery and that “the Arabs enslaved the Africans more than any other nation did.” He added that while Abraham Lincoln led an army of white men to fight other white men in order to liberate slaves, but no similar initiative was taken by Muslims. The show aired on May 27.
