What is homosexual
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
A homo-sexual is one who is sexually attracted to and desires or fulfills ones desire to enjoy physical sexual intercourse with a member of ones own gender, as opposed to the natural fitrah of a hetro-sexual who is sexually attracted to and desires or fulfills ones desire to enjoy sexual intercourse with a member of the opposite gender.
Homosexuality is absolutely and categorically forbidden and prohibited in Islam. It is an abomination and a grave sin in the eyes of Allah, and in Islam the doers of this sin are punishable by death!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraf verses 80-82:
And We sent
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 11 Surah Hud verses 82-83:
Accordingly, when the time of the execution of Our
Judgement came (for the people of
This deed of homosexuality is deemed un-natural and against humanity and society in Islam. This deed is an evil and immoral deviation of man, and is not even found in the lower forms of animate life! Allah destroyed the whole habitation of Prophet Lot, and turned the whole city upside-down, and rained on them a rain of brim-stones for their sin of homosexuality. It was not that every individual in Sodom and Gomorrah who were destroyed committed sodomy; but even those who accepted it, propagated it, looked upto it as a norm and fashion, and allowed it without raising a voice against this abomination, were all destroyed by Allah Subhanah.
And Allah warns in the Holy Quran: And such a scourge is not far from the tyrannous people! Thus if in the world today, this act of sodomy is propagated and accepted as normal and as fashionable, and society as a whole does not take steps to abolish this abomination, the scourge that came upon the people of Sodom and Gomorrah is not far!
We seek refuge in Allah from His Wrath, His Anger and His Punishment!
Such is the abomination of the act of homosexuality, that the Messenger of Allah (saws) has prescribed the punishment of death for one convicted of this evil in this life; and if the person did not repent for his deeds before his death, his punishment in the Hereafter will be more severe and more lasting.
Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 4448 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Abbas
The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: If a man (even if unmarried) is seized committing sodomy, he will be stoned to death.
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
