What is the status of the sex between two men?
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
what is the status of the sex between two men?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
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 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, totally, and unconditionally forbidden in Islam! It is an abomination and a grave sin in the eyes of Allah, and Shariah or Islamic Law prescribes capital punishment for those who are convicted of committing this abomination! Such is the severity of this abomination of a sin in the Sight of Allah Subhanah.
This deed is deemed un-natural and against humanity and righteous 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 from such impious societies!
We seek refuge in Allah from His Wrath and His Anger and His Punishment!
Beloved brother, the physical attraction of one towards the same sex is not natural, but rather an evil distortion one does to ones own nature! Allah Subhanah has absolutely forbidden this distortion and deviation, and the doers of this evil deed would bring upon themselves the guaranteed Wrath and Anger of Allah Subhanah; unless they sincerely repent and do righteous deeds thereafter.
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 in Islam,
