The fatwa sheds new light on how ISIS is trying to reinterpret centuries-old teachings to justify the sexual slavery of women in the swaths of Syria and Iraq it controls. Among the rule are bans on a father and a son having sex with the same female slave; and the owner of a mother and daughter having sex with both.

ISIS is notorious for systematic abduction and rape of thousands of women and girls especially members of the Yazidi minority in northern Iraq.
