What Does Islam Say About The LGBT Rights? And Why They Don’t Ask Muslims?
Sharia Law is derived from a combination of two primary sources: the Quran and the Hadith. The Quran contains the written verses, while the Hadith is a collection of narrations and teachings of Muhammad, as conveyed by his closest friends, relatives, and scholars who studied under him. These sources together form the basis of Islamic law, providing guidance for Muslims in matters of faith and practice.
It’s important to understand that the Quran itself does not provide a specific list of punishments. Rather, it outlines what is considered lawful and what is not. Similarly, the New Testament doesn’t prescribe that a thief be jailed, but lawmakers have created laws based on Christian principles. In the case of homosexuality, while the Quran condemns the act, it does not specify a particular punishment. Islamic jurists, therefore, rely on the Hadith to establish laws, and this is where Sharia law originates.
In most Islamic countries, the Hadith and Sharia Law are enforced strictly, with severe consequences for breaking the law. Depending on the nature of the crime, punishments can range from death by hanging, stoning, or being thrown from a high cliff, to receiving over 70 lashes. The most serious offenses are 1-Livat and 2-Fahisha. Fahisha is all about filth in general and sexual immorality and the adulteress is stoned.
“Livat” or sodomy is a grievous crime. The two men who have committed sodomy are first thrown from a high cliff and then stoned just imagine that.
Sodomy is referred to as “Livat,” derived from the name of Lot or in Arabic Lut—Abraham’s nephew. According to the Islamic tradition, Lut lived in the city of Sodom, which was destroyed by God. As a result, the act of sodomy remains associated with Lut’s name, and the verb for the act means “doing the Lut thing” or “Lut-associated activity,” rather than using the term sodomy. Sodomy indeed has become synonym of “Lutomy” (Livat) or what people pf Lot used to do. The term is considered so taboo that some people refrain from even pronouncing it. The story of Lot and his wife and how God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah in the Quran is similar to Genesis 19 in the Old Testament. The only difference is that in the Quran, Lot is referred to as “Prophet Lot,” whereas in the Bible he is simply Abraham’s nephew.
Islamic jurisprudence made the act subject to grave punishments, including flogging, stoning, and throwing off the cliff. Now, modern western historians are no different from the Pope or LGBT pastors. They have never lived in a Muslim country, and they speak from a Western standpoint. As a result, they may have little understanding of the severity of the issue and the degree of its seriousness within a Muslim country.
You can joke whatever you want as long as you reside in the west but strict rules don’t care about anybody’s feelings when you are inside.
In Islam, there are no different legal schools. The law is the same for both Sunnis and Shiites; the only thing that distinguishes their sects is their adherence to different leaders. Sunnis believe that Islam ends with Muhammad and that the caliph (Khalifa) is the king or ruler, and they follow the teachings of Abu Bakr. In contrast, Shiites recognize Imams who are connected to Muhammad by bloodline through Ali, Muhammad’s nephew since he had no son. However, it’s important to note that Sharia law is the same for both sects.
Abu Bakr himself commanded that the sodomite should be toppled a wall on the culprit, or burnt alive.
It’s worth noting that Abu Bakr was the closest and most respected man to Muhammad and went on to become the perpetual leader of the Sunnis.
Ali ibn Abi Talib, Muhammad’s nephew and the eternal ruler of the Shiites ordered death by stoning for one sodomite and had another thrown head-first from the top of the highest building in the town followed by stoning. (Ibn Abbas— Musnad Ahmad)
Progressive news outlets, reporters, and organizations often attempt to downplay the Islamic view and present a softer tone. Their tactic involves avoiding engaging Muslims as they hold opposing views in order to conceal the severity of the punishment it advocates. However, as more people Muslims find platforms on social media, it becomes increasingly crucial for us to engage them in this discussion. Almost all of the fifty-seven Muslim countries surveyed oppose LGBT advances, making it clear that the western views are not widely supported.
Today, a number of Muslim-majority countries retain the criminal penalties for homosexual acts first enacted under European colonial rule. As LGBT movements gained traction in Europe and the West, Islamic fundamentalist politicians associated Western civilization with homosexuality and “ravaging moral decay”. In contemporary society, prejudice, anti-LGBT violence and discrimination, including within law, persist in much of the Muslim world, exacerbated by socially conservative attitudes and the recent rise of Islamist movements in some countries. There are laws against homosexual sexual activities in a larger number of Muslim-majority countries, which prescribe the death penalty in a limited number of them.
Most Muslim-majority countries and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) have opposed moves to advance LGBT rights at the United Nations, in the General Assembly or the UNHRC. In 2008, 57 UN member nations, most of them having a Muslim majority, cosponsored a statement opposing LGBT rights at the UN General Assembly. In May 2016, a group of 51 Muslim majority states blocked 11 gay and transgender organizations from attending the 2016 High Level Meeting on Ending AIDS. There are also several organizations for LGBT Muslims which support LGBT rights, and others which attempt conversion therapy.
Now let’s see what does the Quran says about it.
And ˹remember˺ when Lot scolded ˹the men of˺ his people, ˹saying,˺ “Do you commit a shameful deed that no man has ever done before? You lust after men instead of women! You are certainly transgressors.” But his people’s only response was to say, “Expel them from your land! They are a people who wish to remain chaste!” So We saved him and his family except his wife, who was one of the doomed. We poured upon them a rain ˹of brimstone˺. See what was the end of the wicked!— Surah Al-A’raf 7:80-84
أ َئِنَّكُمْ لَتَأْتُونَ الرِّجَالَ شَهْوَةً مِّن دُونِ النِّسَاء بَلْ أَنتُمْ قَوْمٌ تَجْهَلُونَ (النّمل، 55)
Do you lust for men rather than women? Nay, you are an ignorant people.
إِنَّكُمْ لَتَأْتُونَ الرِّجَالَ شَهْوَةً مِّن دُونِ النِّسَاء بَلْ أَنتُمْ قَوْمٌ مُّسْرِفُونَ (الأعراف، 81)
You drive men lust to the exclusion of women, but you are an immoral people.
وَلُوطًا إِذْ قَالَ لِقَوْمِهِ إِنَّكُمْ لَتَأْتُونَ الْفَاحِشَةَ مَا سَبَقَكُم بِهَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ مِّنَ الْعَالَمِینَ … إِنَّا مُنزِلُونَ عَلَى أَهْلِ هَذِهِ الْقَرْیَةِ رِجْزًا مِّنَ السَّمَاءِ بِمَا كَانُوا یَفْسُقُون (العنکبوت، 28 تا 34)
And Lot, when he said to his people, “Indeed, you will commit such filth as none of the worlds did before you…We will send down upon the people of this city a punishment from the sky because of their disobedience.
Now let’s see what the Hadith and therefore Sharia Law says about the matter. According to the Canonical collections of the Hadith:
Abu Musa al-Ash’ari, “If a woman comes upon a woman, they are both adulteresses, if a man comes upon a man, then they are both adulterers.”— Al-Tabarani in al-Mu‘jam al-Awat: 4157, Al-Bayhaqi, Su‘ab al-Iman: 5075
Abu ‘Isa Muhammad ibn ‘Isa at-Tirmidhi wrote that Muhammad had indeed prescribed the death penalty for both the active and passive partners—Sunan al-Tirmidhi around 884
Abdullah ibn Abbas: ‘If you find anyone doing as Lot’s people did, kill the one who does it, and the one to whom it is done’.”— Sunan Abu Dawood 4462, Jamiʽ al-Tirmidhi 1456, Sunan ibn Majah 2561
Abdullah ibn Abbas: “If a man who is not married is seized committing sodomy he will be stoned to death.”— Sunan Abu Dawood 4463
Ibn al-Jawzi: “Prophet Muhammad had cursed “sodomites” in several hadith, and had recommended the death penalty for both the active and passive partners in homosexual acts.— Ibn al-Jawzi (1114–1200), writing in the 12th century,
Ibn Abbas: “The Prophet said: ‘… cursed is the one who does the action of the people of Lot’.”— Musnad Ahmad:1878
Ibn Abbas: “the Prophet of Allah said: ‘May Allah curse the one who does the action of the people of Lot, may Allah curse the one who does the action of the people of Lot’, three times.”— Musnad Ahmad: 2915
Al-Nuwayri : What Prophet of Allah feared most for his community were the practices of the people of Lot.”— Al-Nuwayri (1272–1332), writing in the 13th century, reported in his Nihaya
Jabir: “The Prophet said: ‘There is nothing I fear for my followers more than the deed of the people of Lot.'”
Why am I doing this?
This is a unique opportunity for us. The LGBT community has a one-sided negative focus that only points toward Christian values. They never talk about Muslims or Jewish people. It’s a chance for us where we can benefit an issue where all think the same but only Christians are the target. Of course, “why only Christians” are targeted needs another article to respond to but imagine this: Muslims and Christians together make 70 percent of the entire world population.
According to Statista:
“As of 2010, Christianity was the religion with the most followers worldwide, followed by Islam (Muslims) and Hinduism. In the forty years between 2010 and 2050, it is projected that the landscape of world religions will undergo some noticeable changes, with the number of Muslims almost catching up to Christians. The changes in population sizes of each religious group is largely dependent on demographic development, for example, the rise in the world’s Christian population will largely be driven by population growth in Sub-Saharan Africa, while Muslim populations will rise across various regions of Africa and South Asia. As India’s population is set to grow while China’s goes into decline, this will be reflected in the fact that Hindus will outnumber the unaffiliated by 2050. In fact, India may be home to both the largest Hindu and Muslim populations in the world by the middle of this century.”
So, how can we use these numbers?
There is a strategy that we can use to our advantage when answering the attacks of the media complex. Whether it is a reporter, an LGBT community member or a governmental organization, They all have one Machiavellian question to begin with, and with that one disruptive question, they can turn the tables and win the game. The question is: Do you agree with LGBT community (or do you agree with homosexuality) and as we try to say: The Bible says….., they say: so you disagree and we continue to say, well God says…the Bible says…. they end the conversation.
Here’s how you can turn the tables: say ‘The Quran says…’ and watch as they become shocked. They may respond by saying ‘Excuse me? I didn’t ask about the Quran.’ You can then reply with ‘Well, why not? Why haven’t you asked Muslims? Don’t we all agree on this?
Imagine if they ask the same question from all Muslims. What would they hear? Can they continue to target only Christians? Can they target all religions? No, they can’t cope with it, and that’s where we need to depart. As we continue, we will develop more solutions, but this is an excellent starting point.Author's note at the end of each post: -"Your biggest problem is so small for such a big God"-Ella Cruz" The Bible serves as the blueprint of faith, and the New Testament provides us with God's faith and the power to perform miracles through faith and the name of Jesus. Regardless of the severity of cancer, healing can be achieved through faith in God's word. When Jesus raised the dead, he did not discriminate based on the level of death. He simply called forth life. Let's explore how he did it. The first time Jesus brought someone back from the dead was the daughter of Jairus, an official in Jerusalem. Although she had passed away, she was only recently deceased. The second time was the son of a widow in Nain who had been dead for just one day. Lastly, Jesus raised Lazarus, the brother of Mary and Martha in Bethany, who had been dead for three days. He raised them all. No matter how insurmountable your problem may seem, Jesus is the resurrection and the light. Ella Cruz World's events are happening so fast. Global Governance 2015, Agenda 2030, Agenda 2050, Antarctica, Mars, CERN, G5, The United Nations, The European Union, the Club of Rome, and the false prophets of the Vatican all together, we see that the satanic global government is imminent, and it shall come to pass. The mark of the beast will be obligatory. You are either a Christian or not. If you are, you believe this because it is predicted 2000 years ago in the Bible. But if you are not a Christian, you read the news and notice that the satanic world government is their agenda. Their Global Governance 2025 is terribly close. Their Green New Deal 12-year timeline matches the agenda 2030. We have a short time to prepare ourselves. Born-again Christians are happy and calm. Why? Why do we joyfully dedicate ourselves to the nation, knowing that we will be chased and prosecuted? Because we are dedicated to the Kingdom. "Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done." 1. We firmly believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God. 2. We hold the Bible as the divinely inspired Word of God. 3. We believe that God loved us so much that He sent His only begotten Son to die on the cross for our sins. Through His precious blood, all our sins are washed away and forgiven. 4. We believe that the price for our salvation, health, prosperity, happiness, and eternal life has been paid by the blood of Jesus. These gifts are freely available to us through the grace of God. By His stripes, we were healed 2000 years ago. 5. We acknowledge that by accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we open our hearts to the Holy Spirit. We are baptized by the Holy Spirit, who dwells within us and communicates with us through dreams, visions, speeches, videos, books, and other means. This communication begins immediately after our salvation. 6. We firmly believe that Jesus Christ remains the same yesterday, today, and forever. As born-again believers, we receive the same DNA as Jesus Christ, with the same miraculous abilities through faith. Just as the apostles performed signs and wonders like Jesus, we too can accomplish these miracles through faith, and the Lord will work through us. 7. We condemn the Vatican's religion and many false prophets who have deceived Christians for centuries, hiding the true message of the Bible and the Good News from people to maintain their power. We welcome all denominations and strive for unity in the body of Christ. 8. We believe that a born-again Christian never truly dies. When a believer's life on earth ends, they are promoted to heaven, and death holds no power over them. In heaven, we experience immense joy, love, peace, and the glory of God. Those who have had near-death experiences or have seen Jesus in a vision or dream know the indescribable relief and joy of being in His presence. To answer the question of why we are happy, we say that we could happily die at any moment. In fact, we long to go home and be with our Lord. However, we know that each one of us has a mission and purpose revealed to us by the Holy Spirit after our born-again experience. For the sake of fulfilling that mission, we remain joyful and relaxed in the spirit, knowing that we are called to save people by preaching the Gospel and bringing them to Jesus. To be born again, you just need to say: Lord Jesus, I accept you as my personal savior, Come to my heart, Forgive my sins, Wash me away, Make me a new person, And live inside of me. In the Name of Jesus from Nazareth, Amen. And that's it. You are saved! Jesus will reveal Himself to you, and your life will undergo a significant transformation. Your marriage, health (especially addiction), finances, and all areas of your life will experience an extraordinary change. And never look back. In Jesus Almighty name. Amen.
