“Concerning the ‘direct’ role of Islam in the trans-Atlantic slave-trade, it was mostly the Muslim raiders and traders who did the inhuman part of capturing the slaves in Africa. European traders bought slaves mainly from these Muslim slave-catchers and transported them to the New World? When Europeans embarked on the slave trade, Muslims were the masters of Africa with centuries of experience in the art of slave-hunting. They became the ready supplier of slaves for European traders. Muslim slave hunters and traders brought black captives from inland locations to coastal centers, and sold them to Europeans.” p.325 Islamic Jihad M.A. Khan
