How Should Islam Deal with Homosexuality? Gay, LGBTQ Muslims in Islam And Quran

by birtanpublished on July 9, 2020

So this question always causes a lot ofcontroversy and and people are veryemotionally involved with it I want tobe very explicit very clear I'm gonna bevery very precise and what I'm sayingand I want everybody to listen carefullythose of us who believe in the Quran I'm

Addressing Muslims now it is very clearfrom the Quran that one of the many manymany sins that a Muslim should not do isthat of engaging in intercourse insexual relations outside of marriage andour religion has forbidden extramarital

And premarital intercourse then how cananybody believe that same-sexintercourse is something that is ethicaland moral in the eyes of our Creator ifeven premarital intercourse isconsidered to be something that is

Immoral and worthy of sin then surelyengaging in same sex is a similar if nota worse crime in the eyes of allahsubhanahu wata'ala so there is really nocontroversy in the fourteen and a halfcenturies of our ummah no alum has ever

And no person has ever justified thisact as being moral and Islamicallypermissible and the story of Ruthalehissalaam is very clear in the Quranthere is no question that the people ofluth were guilty of multiple crimes but

Their predominant crime that isassociated with them multiple times isthat of same-sex relations and so wecannot simply dismiss the story and saywell there was no point in ruling it orit was figurative or what not the story

Is explicit and the Quran is very clearand there's unanimous consensus in thisregard however with all of this we alsoneed to be very clear what is forbiddenin our religion is the action the actionof intimacy outside of marriage what is

Not forbidden the Sharia does not forbidfeelings of the heart the Sharia doesnot encourage but it doesn't forbid whatyour heart lusts after ie what yoursexual persuasion might be what yourfancy might be what you lust after the

Shoddy art will not punish you based onthe feelings of the heart and so ifsomebody comesto us from the Muslim community and saysthat and this has happened to me manytimes somebody comes and says this email

Or even directly that you know chef Ican't help it but I am attracted to thesame gender I am gay I am homosexual soI say to this person look if you findyour inclinations to be of to the samegender in a sexual manner Allah will not

Punish you for the feelings of the heartAllah will not punish you and thequestion of nature versus nurture is asecondary question and perhaps if wehave more time in another lecture we canget there but it is frankly irrelevant

From a legal perspective why thisbrother or sister feels this way is aseparate question they are not allowedto act upon the impulse or the urge justlike a pyromaniac who wants to burnthings cannot go and burn things just

Like a kleptomaniac wants to stealthings cannot steal thingsjust like I as a normal heterosexualmale is attracted to a woman who's notmy wife and I find her beautiful andlustful I'm not allowed to act on that

And I have to control my gaze and haveto control my emotions and have to notact on it Allah will not punish me if Ifound a woman attractive Allah will callme to task if I allowed that attractionto affect my actions to stare without

Lowering the gaze to flirt to talk totouch to stuff rola commands inna thatis where the sin is incurred but thefeeling of the heart Allah will notpunish me for finding somebodyattractive male or female the point is

What our feelings are in the heart mustbe controlled so if a Muslim findshimself or herself having same seximpulses or attractions we say to themyou are no less of a Muslim simplybecause you feel this way in fact if you

Battle those urges then will llahi youmight be a better Muslim than me becauseyour urges are more difficult maybe andyou have to be have more of a battlingwithin yourself so simply because aperson has same-sex desires does not

Diminish their Iman or their faith ortheir status of Islam if they act uponit we say to this brother or sister thatlook you have committed a sin and repentto Allah and I'm asinner you're a sinner we're all sinners

Repent to Allah leave your way and Allahwill forgive you and even if they arepersisting in this sin we keep on makingdua for them that allows which I'llguides them there's no point being harshor mean or nasty or cruel we don't want

To cause them to leave the faith welllie I commit sins this brother commitsins maybe his sins are of a differentnature than minebut in the end we are all sinners and aslong as they want repentance and they're

Coming to the Masjid for spiritualguidance then we must always accepttheir coming to the Masjid just like wewould accept a drug dealer an alcoholiccomes to the messages and he wants to beforgiven now where do we draw the line

Where do I draw the line I draw the lineat somebody who wants to spread thisidea and wants other people to followhim we say to this person brother orsister we don't allow this in our Masjidif you want to preach and call to this

Then feel free to open up another centredo whatever you want this is the westernlands nobody will harm or touch youbecause we're not allowed to do thatthat's your business to do that but wedo not approve of people coming and

Preaching to others this understandingof Islam if they're doing it in theirprivate lives is between them and Allahif you find out about it give thempersonal advice but there's no need totreat them any harshly or differently

Just like as I said a drunkard or a drugdealer you would be compassionate andmerciful and we'll lucky brothers andsisters I am a sinner and you were asinner why should people judge me for mysins this between me and Allah but where

Do we draw the line that people who arejustifying and wanting others to followwhat they are doingand calling others to it we say this isnot something that we will tolerate inour faith communities but the laws of

The land allow you to do what you wantand as we live in these lands of theWest we will not tolerate any one of ourcommunity physically harming this personwe will speak out against it becausethat is not what our Sharia requires us

To do when we are residing we have toobey the laws of the land but we alsohave the right to criticize verballyjust like they have the right to do whatthey're doing legally we have the rightto criticize morally and we shall not

Compromise on this one issue that wedo not believe this lifestyle is healthywe do not believe it is spirituallyuplifting we do not believe it issomething that will in and of itselflead one to allah subhanho wa taala but

To love forgives all sins to the one whorepents and we ask Allah as the order toguide us to the straight path and toguide everyone who is a sinner to thecorrect understanding of Islam andacting upon it and we ask Allah Subhan

Allah Tala to forgive our sins and tomanifest and magnify our good deeds wasAhmed lahu clear on cinema alaikum warahmatullah wa barakatu
