Why is Anal sex, homosexuality & blow job not allowed?

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 no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 222:They ask you about the (women’s) monthly courses. Say, “It is a state of impurity; so keep apart from the women during their monthly courses and do not approach them until they are clean. When they have cleansed themselves, then you may go to them in the manner ordained for you by Allah. Most surely Allah loves those people who refrain from evil and keep themselves pure and clean.

Allah, who created us, the heavens, the earth, and everything in between, in His Divine and Perfect Wisdom and Knowledge created and ordained the laws for everything. He created and ordained the sun to a law.. its distance, its heat, its movement, etc. He created and ordained the earth, mountains, clouds, rains, vegetation, animals, humans, etc. also to a perfect law. He Who created us, Knows what is best for us. Likewise, for our carnal functions and pleasures, He ordained a law and a legal means for us. In the above aayah of Surah Baqarah, there are three basic commandments:

The women’s monthly courses are an impurity, therefore men must not approach their wives for sexual intercourse.

When they are cleansed, men may approach them for sexual intercourse, in the manner ordained by Allah (the natural way).

Allah loves those people who refrain from evil, and are pure and clean.

But if one, in deviation from the natural way ordained by Allah, devices his own way in any of Allah’s commands: he will not only be liable to Allah’s punishment for disobedience, but will also have consequences of his deeds in this world.

Your comment: Why is anal sex not allowed.

By anal sex, we assume you mean between a man and a woman. The Messenger of Allah (saws) termed anal sex a grave sin absolutely forbidden in Islam. And even in todays world, the science of medicine agrees that this act is unclean, unhealthy, and is one of the causes of the incurable disease, Aids, whether it be between man and woman, or man and man.

Your comment: Why is homosexuality not allowed.

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraf verses 80-82:And We sent Lot as a Messenger. And 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? You gratify your lust with men instead of women. Indeed you are a people who are transgressors of all limits!” But the only answer his people gave was, “turn out these people from your habitations for they pose to be very pious.”

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 Lot), We turned the habitation upside down and rained on it stones of baked clay, each of which had been specifically marked by your Lord. And such a scourge is not far from the tyrannous people!

Homosexuality is absolutely forbidden 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!

This deed is deemed un-natural and against humanity and society in Islam. This deed is an evil and immoral deviation of man, and is not found even 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 and His Anger and His Punishment!

Your comment: Is a blow job for both sexes allowed or that too is prohibited.

The Quran and Sunnah are silent on this issue, and no one asked the Prophet (saws) about this issue, nor did he ever mention anything about it. Thus one cannot say it is ‘haraam’. And because this act is a later development and deviation of man, we have to rely on the jurists amongst the scholars for an opinion.

The scholars are almost unanimous in their opinion, that this act of ‘blow-job’ is un-natural, unclean and impure, and thus closer to the forbidden in Islam. Some scholars have also termed it absolutely forbidden.

And the Messenger of Allah (saws) said in one famous narration that in Islam, “The ‘halaal’ is evident, and the ‘haraam’ is also evident. Between the ‘halaal’ and the ‘haraam’ there are some gray matters, and anyone who also stays away of these gray matters, has indeed purified his soul.”

And Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

Your Brother in Islam,
