Thanwi R writes:
relationship with a strange (ghair-mahram) woman or a
handsome beardless youth (amrad); whether such a
relationship entails looking at them, conversing with
them to please the nafs (the carnal self), associating
with them in privacy, adorning the self or voice to
please them and to gain their admiration; all these are
the result of a colossal and destructive spiritual
malady with such tragic consequences, that are beyond
SODOMY & THE NATION OF LOOT:
When he said unto his folk: Will you commit an obscenity
that none has ever committed before you? You fulfil your
lust on men instead of women? Indeed, you are a wanton
nation" - 7/80-81
verses, Allah emphatically denounces the
unnatural, perverted manner of sexual gratification that
was practiced by the nation of Loot (and become known
thereafter as sodomy.)
another juncture in the Quraan Majeed, Allah
has described the punishment inflicted upon this
sick nation. Hazrat Jibra'eel lifted their entire city
into the sky, inverted them and brought them crashing
down onto earth with a terrific bang. Thereafter,
boulders and rocks rained down upon them from the sky.
These stones were of a different composition altogether,
and each had the name of the culprit to be pelted by it
inscribed upon it. Hazrat Maulana Phoolpuri most aptly
comments on this incident:
actions of this nation were perverted and unnatural,
thus the punishment meted out to them was a befitting
one; THEY WERE INVERTED!"
the sincerest of warnings from Hazrat Lut, they remained
persistent in their foul deeds and doings; thus 40 000
of them were annihilated in a single moment.
made them a lesson unto mankind right up to the Day
of Judgment, that even today, traces of their
destruction are present in the Dead Sea (also known as
the "Sea of Lot"), the water of which is so dense and
bitter, it will not permit any tree or vegetation to
grow upon it's shores.
HOMOSEXUALITY & SODOMY:
Jabir reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam)
action I fear most for my Ummah is the action of the
nation of Lut (i.e. Sodomy)." - Mishkaat p. 313.
Abdullah bin Abbas and Hazrat Abu Hurairah [Radiyallahu-Anhum]
report from Rasulullah [Sallallahu-Alayhi-Wasallam]:
"Accursed is he who commits the act of the nation of
Loot [Alayhimus-Salaam]." - Mishkaat p.313.
PUNISHMENT FOR SODOMY :
Abubakr destroyed two homosexuals by having a wall
crushed upon them.
Rasulullah [Sallallahu-Alayhi-Wasallam] said: "Allah
will not cast a glance of Mercy towards the person
that commits the act of sodomy or anal sex with his
wife." - Mishkaat p. 313.
HOMOSEXUALITY WITH HANDSOME LADS:
words of wisdom regarding handsome lads:
Abu Huraira reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi
wasallam) said: Do not stare at beardless youth.
Anas reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam)
said: Beware of beardless youth for they are a greater
source of mischief than young maidens.
Umar used to say: I do not fear the danger of a wild
animal let loose upon an aalim, as much as I fear the
danger of a beardless, handsome lad upon him.
Sufyan Thauri says: If every woman has one shaitaan
accompanying her, then a handsome lad has two.
Ghazzali writes: Turning a hungry lion upon an aabid
(worshipper) is not as detrimental to him as a handsome
lad left before him.
