My brother Muslim first of all, any human say Shahada, praying and do all of Islam pillars is considered as Muslim. And about transgender people: There is no transgender people in Islam because Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala said: [Quran 75:39] {فَجَعَلَ مِنْهُ الزَّوْجَيْنِ الذَّكَرَ وَالْأُنْثَى} And made of him two mates, the male and the female. ...

The Islamic view on transgendered/bigendered folk may be covered among the ideas of Mukhannathun, although that is unclear. Mukhannath appears to literally refer to hermaphrodites, but http://wislam.org/Concepts/Mukhannath suggests that it applies to trangendered people as well (although maybe only MtF). If the mukhannthun rules do not apply, then Islam ...

I surveyed fatawa on this topic in this answer (see also Can transgender people be Muslims, and how do gendered rules and rules about marriage apply?). Basically, there's some fatawa that say it's haram to transition, and other fatawa that say it's permissible under certain strict circumstances, sometimes described as "psychological hermaphroditism". ...

Indeed Imam al-Qurtobi in his tafsir commented this verse as follows: الزوجين الذكر والأنثى أي الرجل والمرأة . وقد احتج بهذا من رأى إسقاط الخنثى . وقد مضى في سورة ( الشورى ) أن هذه الآية وقرينتها إنما خرجتا مخرج الغالب . وقد مضى في أول سورة ( النساء ) أيضا القول فيه ، وذكرنا في آية المواريث حكمه --- (My own trabnslation take it carefully) --- two ...

There's some inconsistency throughout Islam, with two diametrically opposite arguments. Transgender people are mistaken or confused In this interpretation, transgender people are victims, perhaps confused by Shaytaan's whisperings. A person's true, innate, God-given gender is determinable from some measurable, unchangable aspects of their biology at birth....

This answer might be a strong assumption, based on the given data! First of all the Arabic words used to define transgender are: مغايرو الهوية الجنسية (~ A person who has changed his/her gender identity). التحول الجنسي أو التخنث أو مغايرة الجنس: التحول الجنسي (~the change of the gender) التخنث (at-takhannut) being a khunta مغايرة الجنس (~opposition to the ...

you seem like a really smart kid, when I was your age I was not that sharp so good for you ^^. With that been said, let me tell that in this life there are somethings that we choose and some others where the choice was made for us. For example we don't get to choose our parents, I can be a nice kid but my father is a serial killer for exemple, I might have ...

Scholarly attitudes on transgender people involve a difference of opinion and seem to be evolving. While traditionally being transgender is considered haram, some modern scholars do not consider being transgender as haram, instead treating it more along the lines of a medical condition. The trangender female narrative tends to follow the lines that Allah ...

Sheikh Assim Al Hakeem addressed this topic, which is available in a YouTube video. His stance is that a post-operative transsexual woman should endeavor to act like a man, and they should theoretically get "the surgery" reversed (presumably referring to gender reassignment surgery) although he acknowledged it's impracticality. Here's my transcript of the ...

Before we get to scholarly opinion, you're married to someone who is a Muslim and believes themself to be a woman. There's Islam-related consequences to this, e.g. they may view your marriage as a lesbian marriage; they may not believe the rights and responsibilities of being a husband apply to them. To stay together, you're going to have to navigate ...

In Islam you mustn't disrespect people but you also mustn't comfort one into their sin (that is a sin). Feeling like the opposite of their gender is something, and actually going out of one's way to permanently change their body and identity is a sin. If you were born a man, you have to remain a man and it's also a sin for men to mimic women and vice versa. ...

I really believe that your question is not islamic, maybe I'm wrong, but you have to prove me that transgender is not a sin regarded from an islamic point of view. Some hadiths refers to man behaving very badly by behaving like women, and women dressing like men. Allah curses men who imitate women and women who imitate men. ( Bukhari) https://...

Hijrah is derived from the Arabic h-j-r (ha, jeem, raa) (هجر). It has a number of meanings, what is important for this discussion is the meaning of "to give up, to part company with, to abandon, to emigrate, to migrate" (Badawi, Abdul Haleem: Dictionary of Qur'anic Usage, Brill, Boston: 2008) Therefore, a Hijrah is a rejection or moving away from thing ...

As you know people who have this case they do not have any physical parts support the other sex, so it is incorrect brain structure for the gender (as one of the pages described it). You might also know that changing sex can change the body features, but it can never change the gender for real, i.e a man who changes his gender will never get pregnant, and a ...

For the observing hijab in front of transgender people question... It depends... Practical considerations Ordinarily, if a woman follows the ruling about wearing hijab in front of non-mahram men, she'll wear it almost continuously outside the home. So, even in the rare case she meets a non-mahram transgender person, she's probably already wearing hijab. ...

There's a difference of opinion on this. The more commonly encountered opinion among scholars is that transitioning is haram. Examples of fatawa which unequivocally declare it haram are: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13. There's not much nuance in this case: mostly the evidence is it's "changing the creation of Allah" and "men imitating women and ...
