Also, I want to ask what is the meaning of sodomy in Islam? Does it include oral sex as well?

The act of the people of Lut (as) was homosexuality and being gay and men having anal sex with one another and women having sex with other women. Homosexuality is such a big crime that Allah destroyed the nation of Lut (as) for doing this kind of sin. The act of the people of Lut (as) is something that Allah (swt) does not like at all! Allah (swt) was very angry with those people which is why he sent 3 different punishments to completely destroy that nation. Being gay is the biggest sin to Allah (swt). However, Allah (swt) is the most merciful, so if someone repents from the act of homosexuality and asks Allah for forgiveness, Allah will forgive them. So never despair in the mercy of Allah (swt) as he is the most forgiving and the most merciful. No matter how big our sins are and no matter what we’ve done, if we sincerely ask Allah to forgive us then he loves to forgive us. As for oral sex between a man and a woman, this is not sodomy but still it it is totally haram. We use our tongue for good things like reciting the Quran, not for filthy gross stuff.
