al-Liwaat - Homosexuality

Contents > Intimate Relationships In Islam > Homosexuality

You must know not to commit homosexual acts. Allah says,

“And [thus, too, did We save] Lut a, when he said unto his people: “Would you commit this abomination with your eyes open (to its being against all nature)? Must you really approach men with lust instead of women? Nay, but you are people without any awareness (of right and wrong)!” al-Qur’an, Surah al-Naml, 27: 54-55

And,

“And Lot, [too, was inspired by Us] when he said unto his people: “Verily, you commit abominations such as none in all the world has ever committed before you! Must you indeed approach men [with lust], and thus cut across the way [of nature]? and must you commit these shameful deeds in your open] assemblies?” But his people’ (saw) only answer was, “Bring down upon us Allah’ (saw) chastisement, if you are a man of truth!” al-Qur’an, Surah al-Ankaboot, 29: 28-29

And the Prophet (saw) said,

“Whoever you found doing what the people of Lut a did, kill the doer and the one it is being done to.” Musnad Imam Ahmad, 1/300 and Sunan al-Tirmizi and Sunan ibn Majah, no. 2561
