“A person is not to be blamed for his nature. Rather, he is to be blamed if he acts according to his nature.” -Al-Junayd in ‘Hilyat al-Awliya” Our community needs to understand that NO ONE is condemned to Hell simply because they have a desire that is not permissible to engage in. Men and women who are attracted to the opposite gender but do not have ...

Homosexual acts are strictly forbidden in Islam. Although it has mainly been focused around men, women homosexuals are not that strongly discussed. This could be that in adultery, the focus is mainly on penetration. In the holy Quran, the people of Prophet Lut have been discussed often. These were the people who heavily dowelled in homosexuality (male). ...

Asalam wa alaikum وَلُوطًا إِذۡ قَالَ لِقَوۡمِهِۦۤ أَتَأۡتُونَ ٱلۡفَـٰحِشَةَ مَا سَبَقَكُم بِہَا مِنۡ أَحَدٍ۬ مِّنَ ٱلۡعَـٰلَمِينَ (٨٠) إِنَّڪُمۡ لَتَأۡتُونَ ٱلرِّجَالَ شَہۡوَةً۬ مِّن دُونِ ٱلنِّسَآءِ‌ۚ بَلۡ أَنتُمۡ قَوۡمٌ۬ مُّسۡرِفُونَ (٨١) Translation (interpretation of meaning): We also (sent) Lut: he said to his people: "Do ye commit lewdness ...

Allah does not like the transgressors, we know this. However, being homosexual and acting upon homosexuality are two different things. It seems you have never acted on your homosexual inclination, which is good, however you still have not fully overcome. The fact you made it to 24 without doing that is great, and I applaud your resilience. As per your ...

No, don't tell your would be spouse or to anyone for the Prophet has said, Every one of my followers will be forgiven except those who expose (openly) their wrongdoings. An example of this is that of a man who commits a sin at night which Allah has covered for him, and in the morning, he would say (to people): "I committed such and such sin last ...

No. Allah does not like these sort of people. He has to repent and never do this again before its too late. Read the story of Loot, “And (remember) Loot (Lot), when he said to his people: ‘Do you commit the worst sin such as none preceding you has committed in the ‘Aalameen (mankind and jinn)? Verily, you practise your lusts on men instead of women. ...

Cannibalism and other humanely-perceived heinous acts can be found in the animal world. Just because an act can be found in the natural world does not justify humans to act upon it as well. Just because a female scorpion kills its male counterpart after mating does not justify a female murdering her husband after mating with him. In conclusion, "natural ...

There's no worldly punishment for acts done in ignorance. By stopping the act and staying away from him is a very good sign Alhamdulillah. What you should do is still make tawbah and astaghfir to Allah. In Surah aali-Imran 3:135 Allah says = "And those who, when they commit an immorality or wrong themselves, remember Allah and seek forgiveness for ...

The holy Quran forbids having sex with someone other than your spouse. There is a allowed list of female to whom a man can marry. Similarly there is a list for Girls. So it is clear that a man can marry women and an woman can marry a man. Without marriage sex is haram. So it is clear that homosexuality is forbidden in Islam.

The handsome young boys in Jannah are for servicing food and drinks, not for providing means of committing homosexual acts. But let's start with the assumption that the messengers sent to Lot were young and handsome boys. The verse says: وَلَقَدْ جَاءَتْ رُسُلُنَا إِبْرَاهِيمَ بِالْبُشْرَىٰ قَالُوا سَلَامًا ۖ قَالَ سَلَامٌ ۖ فَمَا لَبِثَ أَن جَاءَ ...

Al-Kabeer I'm wanting to pinpoint this hadith, verify it's legitimate, and check that the translation is accurate. In principle, I could track down Al-Kabeer and identify what it says. However, I don't believe I have access to Al-Kabeer, nor do I speak Arabic. Googling site:sunnah.com lesbianism doesn't give any hits. You are correct you don't have ...

The answer to both of your questions is - no. No homosexual acts have ever been permitted in Islam.. whether that is penetrative or non-penetrative. This is just against the Fitrah (natural inclination) and it's wrong. Furthermore, anal sex is forbidden to everyone [including heterosexual married couples]. There is no way to get around it! Whoever you ...

All people of heaven Allah will purify their hearts from psychological malice, bad morals, and despicable desires. In fact, when you meet the Hoor Al Ayn in Jannah, you wont be looking around for men :') Allah describes them in Surah Ar-Rahman ( Surah #55 ) verse #56: فِيهِنَّ قَاصِرَاتُ الطَّرْفِ لَمْ يَطْمِثْهُنَّ إِنسٌ قَبْلَهُمْ وَلا جَانٌّ In them ...

Perhaps you may look at the act in a more significant manner. Meaning... looking at anyone, regardless of the sex or sexual preference, is not haraam. A man looking at a man, a woman looking at a man, a boy looking at a man ... these acts of looking are not haraam in any way. It is the MANNER in which one looks, that can become haraam. So, we can conclude, ...

Homosexually has clearly been denounced in the Quran in strongest words. See the following verses: We sent Lot, who said to his people, "How can you commit an abomination such as no one in the world has ever done before you? You lust after men rather than women! You transgress all bounds!" [7:80-81] and And tell of Lot. He said to his people, "...

The prohibition of taking an innocent life is a general ruling. If someone thinks there is an exception to it, the burden of proof is on them. Even for hudud punishments (and there is a difference of opinion on when hadd comes into play in the situation of homosexuality and to what extent), they are only carried out after due legal process and only on the ...

Homosexuality is an invention of the 19th century. Before the 19th century people had words for specific sexual acts, but did not have words for forms of so-called sexual orientation. The Arabic word lūṭī لوطي refers to the city of Lot (Sodom in the Bible); for the practice of the people of Sodom Arabic uses the derived noun liwāṭ لواط , which is the exact ...

As salamu alaikum, According to Islamic principle related to haram, it is that if something is prohibited, then anything that leads to it is also considered haram. A similar principle is that the sin of haram is not limited to the person who engages in the prohibited activity, but the sin also extends to others who support the person in the activity, ...

This ayah only tells about servants,and being attractive/beautiful. So i really do not see that how being attractive, is directly connected to anything related to sexuality. I mean there are other reasons too, due to which people can prefer beautiful men. Beauty of man never means that they have to be used for sexual pleasure ,it can mean anything else ...

Hadiths condemning female homosexuality There indeed doesn't seem to be an explicit condemnation of female homosexuality in Quran, but some hadith sources suggest that the people of Lut and the people of Ras who were doomed because of their sins according to Quran had both male and female homosexuality among their transgressions. Here I quote hadiths from ...

Imho, Islam bans and shows hate to actions(sins) not to people. So even somebody could be full of sins but Islam still consider them as people and speaks to them. If we cant talk to sinners or non believers, how we can explain and tell beauty of Islam to them? Islam always suggest to people ask forgiveness for sins. So people are not object of hatred. You ...

Homosexual intercourse is classed as Zina according to the Shafis and Hanafis1, and given the same Hadd as Zina, i.e lashes for the unmarried and Rajm (stoning to death) for the married. Hence their execution comes under زَنَى بَعْدَ إِحْصَانٍ (Zina after being married) which the two hadith you quoted qualify as a valid cause for the death penalty. From ...

No, women satisfying their desires with other women ( سحاق ) is forbidden in Islam. The evidence for that includes: The Quran teaches Muslim women to guard their private parts just like it teaches men to guard their private parts: وقل للمؤمنات ... ويحفظن فروجهن And tell the believing women to ... guard their private parts — Quran 24:31 ...

Arguments can be made both ways - this is one of those things that different jurists will have different opinions on because the determinant in each ruling is more wisdom and less textual. The idea of granting tax benefits and certain other rights, from an Islamic point of view, has nothing to do with marriage itself. If the state makes a civil - not ...

NOTE. I hope you will not understand my answer as offensive or aggressive, I am trying to help, and as Joseph --peace be upon him-- said no one is safe and I am not an exception: وَمَا أُبَرِّئُ نَفْسِي إِنَّ النَّفْسَ لَأَمَّارَةٌ بِالسُّوءِ إِلَّا مَا رَحِمَ رَبِّي إِنَّ رَبِّي غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ "Nor do I absolve my own self (of blame): the (human)...

Being homosexual isn't a sin. Acting on it—just as acting on any sexual urge outside of the proper bounds (such as marriage)—is. Punishing yourself, as negative reinforcement, is not a very wise choice psychologically and, if it includes physical harm, could in fact be forbidden. I've yet to meet a gay person that went, "One day I was straight, and then I ...

Well excuse me but then you should have missed these two Verses in the Quran: And We sent Lot as a Messenger: Remember that he said to his people, "Have you become so shameless that you commit such indecent acts as no one committed before you in the world? (80) You gratify your lust with men instead of women: indeed you are a people who are ...

Most scholars agree that if you only wish and don't commit this sin, you will not be punished on the day of judgement. Because you follow what is mentioned in this verse: وَذَرُوا ظَاهِرَ الْإِثْمِ وَبَاطِنَهُ And leave what is outward (dhahir) of sin and what is in depth (batin) thereof [6:120] An outward (dhahir) sin means: You can see it's a sin, it'...
