Bohra and gay
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.
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 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!
Dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, the widely propagated and absolutely baseless and false theory in todays ungodly world is that it is the Creator who created the gay nature and inclination in some amongst the men! This theory is nothing but an absolute and shameless lie; for the One Who created man and everything in existence Himself declares that homosexuality is a deviation of the evil in men, and declared this inclination towards the same sex as in abomination and a heinous sin in Islam! The Lord Himself Declares that He created human beings on a fair nature; and bestowed upon man and woman a natural physical attraction towards each other.
Shaytaan, the avowed and arch enemy of man, has made the evil and heinous deeds of the so-called homosexual fair seeming to them, and has inspired and beguiled many amongst mankind to believe that this abomination is in the nature of some men!; when nothing could be further from the Truth!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisaa verses 118-120:
118 Allah did curse him (Shaytaan) but he said: "I will take of Thy servants a portion marked off.
119 I will mislead them and I will create in them false desires; I will order them to slit the ears of cattle, and to deface the (fair) nature created by Allah." Whoever forsaking Allah takes Shaytaan for a friend hath of a surety suffered a loss that is manifest.
120 Shaytaan makes them promises and creates in them false desires; but Shaytaan's promises are nothing but deception.
The only thing Shaytaan is able and permitted to do is to invite and inspire people to transgress the boundaries of Allah Subhanah; the choice to obey Allah Subhanah or to follow the falsehoods of Shaytaan is something a person makes himself, and none except the person will be responsible for his deeds!
As your brothers and sincere well-wishers in Islam, we invite you to fear Allah and take the false thought and belief out of your mind that being homosexual is something in the inherent nature of some men! Allah is our witness, this evil and heinous inclination towards the same sex is nothing but a deviation of ones own mind, and a grave sin in the sight of Allah Subhanah. My dear and beloved brother, follow the path of nature that Allah Subhanah has bestowed upon man, and seek to fulfill your physical desires with those women alone whom the Lord All-Mighty has made legal for you. Beloved brother, fear Allah and His Accounting on the Last Day, for the punishment meted out to the doers of this obnoxious and evil abomination would be very very severe and unbearable indeed!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 39 Surah Zumur verses 53-54: (O Prophet) say: O My servants who have wronged their own souls.Do not despair of Allahs Mercy! Surely, Allah forgives all sins. He indeed is the All Forgiving, All Merciful. Return to your Lord and submit to Him before the scourge overtakes you; for then you may get no help from anywhere.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imraan verse 135-136: Allah likes such good people very much, who, if ever they commit a base deed or wrong their own soul by the commission of a sin, remember Allah instantly, and ask for forgiveness from Him for their shortcomings. For who, but Allah, can forgive sins? (And Allah loves those) who do not knowingly persist in the wrongs they did. These will be rewarded with forgiveness from Allah, and with Gardens beneath which canals flow, and they will reside therein forever! How excellent is the reward of those who do good deeds!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 54: When those come to you who believe in Our Signs, say: "Peace be on you! Your Lord had inscribed for Himself (the rule of) Mercy. Verily if any of you did evil in ignorance, and thereafter repented and amended (his conduct), Lo! He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), he 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), he 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. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
