The Ahādīth of Nabi sallallāhu alayhi wa sallam categorically denounce homosexuality. Nabi sallallāhu alayhi wa sallam said: “One of the greatest fears I have for my Ummah is that they perpetrate the action of the people of Lūt ‘Alayhis Salām, i.e., homosexuality.” (Tirmidhi, 1457 / Ibn Mājah, 2563)
How can we ever accept as normal that which our beloved Nabi sallallāhu alayhi wa sallam feared for us?
Nabi sallallāhu alayhi wa sallam also repeatedly cursed those who involve themselves in the hideous act of homosexuality.
Abu Hurairah radhiyallāhu anhu narrates that Nabi sallallāhu alayhi wa sallam said: “There are four types of people who spend the morning and evening in the anger of Allāh Ta’āla (i.e., they perpetually earn the wrath of Allāh Ta’āla).” Nabi sallallāhu alayhi wa sallam was asked: “Who are they, O Messenger of Allāh sallallāhu alayhi wa sallam?” Nabi sallallāhu alayhi wa sallam replied: “Those men who imitate women, those women who imitate men, those who commit bestiality, and those men who approach men (to fulfill their desires).” (Bayhaqī, 5001)
This warning encompasses many of the strange and absurd sexual orientations found today.
Nabi sallallāhu alayhi wa sallam also mentioned: “When homosexuality becomes rife in society, Allāh Ta’āla lifts His help from the creation. He then does not care which valley they destroy themselves in.” (Tabrāni, 1752)
We are now more than ever in need of Allah Ta’āla’s special help. It should not be that our complicity in allowing these fitan to spread in our communities becomes a means of removing Allāh Ta’āla’s help, Allāh forbid!
When a youngster in the time of Sayyiduna Umar radhiyallāhu anhu displayed some homosexual tendencies, Sayyiduna Umar radhiyallāhu anhu commanded his friends to stay away from him (Bayhaqi, 5011)
Mujāhid rahimahullah said: “If a person who commits this act has to bath with every drop of water in the heavens and the Earth, he will remain impure. (i.e., until he sincerely repents from this sin).” (Bayhaqi, 5403)
May Allāh Ta’āla save us and the Ummah from being included in the curse of Nabi sallallāhu alayhi wa sallam. Āmīn.
