Islam and Homosexuality… No gay Muslims
Let’s make it clear right now. There is NO SUCH THING AS A GAY MUSLIM.
A Muslim is one who submits himself to the will of Allah, and Allah alone. Those who practice this evil have submitted themselves to their own desires and have turned their backs on the clear teachings of Islam. These people will use any kind of rationalization to justify their sinful practices. They are not Muslim, as they are not submitting to Allah.
Let’s look what the complete, clear Qur’an says. Remember, as Muslims we do not make up our religion. We receive it and we obey it, submitting to Allah only.
And (remember) Lut: behold, he said to his people: “Ye do commit lewdness, such as no people in Creation (ever) committed before you. Do ye indeed approach men, and cut off the highway?- and practice wickedness (even) in your councils?” But his people gave no answer but this: they said: “Bring us the Wrath of God if thou tellest the truth.”Qur’an 7:80-81
"Do you approach the males of humanity, leaving the wives that Allah has created for you? But you are a people who transgress" Qur’an (26:165-66)
Many “Muslim homosexuals” commit suicide since they can’t be punished for being homosexuals in a non-Islamic state, but two wrongs don’t make a right.
While homosexuality is wrong, it doesn’t justify suicide under any conditions or circumstances. Please know that if you ever commit suicide, you have seriously misunderstood Islam and its spirit. If you were ever involved in sexual homosexual acts in the past, you should truly and sincerely repent to Allah, The Merciful, The Gracious, and pledge to never to get involved in any homosexual acts again. There is a difference to actually being involved in a homosexual act -which is a sin - from having sexual feelings that you try to control, that you don’t express in public, which is not sinful if you try to control them.
If medical or psychological counseling helps, then get it, but know that Allah is The Curer, and the Qur’an is your best companion. Give charity, pray, make dua’, and Allah will not leave you alone. You have got to believe in the infinite amount of Mercy Allah provides to His servants, and you should also realize that He forgives, if He wishes, all types of sins, except the sin of disbelieving in Him.
What is sinful in homosexuality is the actual sexual act between the couple of same sex. If you transform your desires into a struggle and a challenge to overcome it and not physically commit it, then insha’Allah, you will be rewarded for it.
Don’t lose hope. Fear Allah, ask for help, never give up, and do something to get rid of even the thought of homosexuality. Try to avoid any circumstances that trigger those homosexual feelings: don’t be alone with a man or woman you find attractive. Always be in the company of others, don’t get involved in deep / personal discussions with any person that you may think will trigger your homosexual feeling. Stay away from any other people who have similar feelings. Don’t even think in such an idea of this subject, keep yourself busy in different useful things, and stay away of anything that reminds you of homosexuality. Keep a POSITIVE thinking in your mind and keep saying to yourself that you can do something about it. Don’t ever say I can’t. Remember with every step you take toward getting rid of this habit you will be aided, guided and rewarded from Allah.
Remember, there is in this world many compulsive gamblers, alcoholics, adulterers, thieves, but many of them control it and refrain from doing it… If they aren’t Muslims and have the will to do it, you are a Muslim and you have Allah on your side when you seek His Help. There is no way you will fail insha’Allah…
