salaam aleikoum i have a question about homosexuality, some poeple ( they say that they are moslims) say: "that homosexuality is not forbidden (haram) in the islam, and that the arguments in de quran which talk about homosexuality means acts and practice of homosexaulity and not to be homo. theze people think that it is halal to be homo and that Allah who create these feelings in people and that's why it is allowed in the islam". some other people say: "that homosexuality doesn't depends of religion but of culture and that because it's not allowed in arabic culture that's why some moslims think that homosexuality is haram, but in the fact it is not haram". some people say that: " it is haram to practice homosexuality, but it is not haram to be a homo, and that people who have homo's feelings have no sin if they practice homosexuality because Allah create them so, these people think that the problem is the feeling and not intentions or acts, and that some people born homo's so they don't have any sin to do that". can u explain me these punts,and is homosexuality haram ? is het haram to be homo or not?and is it true that some people have these feelings( homosexuel feelings) and born with it? is it possible for a person to born gay?and can that Allah punish someone that gay born is? how can that Allah punish someone because of a sin which he has not done but comes from Allah?and it is true thatIs it true that if someone has a bad intention to do something haram, but he has not done then Allah won't punish him?and that's why these people say that it is halal to be a homo and that Allah won't punish u because u didn't prcatice it.and they take that hadith as an argument: Dit is een hadith Qudsi:Allah has said: "If My servant considers doing a sin, do not record it against him. If he acts upon it, record it as one sin. If he considers doing a good deed and does not do it, record it as one good deed, and if he actually does it, record it as 10 good deeds." [Recorded by Imam Muslim]so they think that homosexuality is not haram but the acts of homosexuality is haram, and they say also that it is not haram to get bad intentions to do bad things unless if u did that bad thing. conclusion:they think that there is difference between acts, intentions and feelings and that all that come from Allah and not from satan.nB: i believ that homosexuality haram is, and that also get bad intentions to pratice homosexuality also haram, and that nonone born as a gay, as noone born addict on alcohol or addict on zina. but i want to answear these people... wasalaam aleikom warahmatoAllahi wabarakatuh
As-Salamu `alaykum! I have a Christian friend who asked me why punishment in Islam like stoning to death, cutting the hand off, etc., is so cruel and inhumane? I said that it is better to be punished in this world than be tormented in the Hereafter. I need more explanation from you. Jazakum Allahu Khayrun.
