I have read this article and I really like it it's very
But there is a sahih Hadith that says Homosexuals should be
killed if they did Zinaa
ain't this Contradicting?
Wa Alaikum As'salam dear brother,
We already know from the Glorious Quran,
that Allah Almighty punished with GREAT PUNISHMENT the people of Sodom and
Gomorrah, - Prophet Lot's people, - because they were
homosexuals and great sinners.
Homosexuals, if persist on doing their acts, then they would be
considered spreading mischief in the land, and striving to turn the society into
the doomed-to-Hell Sodom and Gomorrah ones. And we know from the Glorious Quran
that the latter were doomed with a mighty destruction. Their punishment can
reach the death penalty:
punishment of those who wage war against God and His Apostle, and
strive with might and main for mischief through the land is:
execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite
sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy
punishment is theirs in the Hereafter;
Saudi Arabia is heading that way. Homosexuality is on the rise
there. The swines of the desert follow a false Islam:
so the Hadith only applies on those who persist on it?
The Holy Quran Commands to punish the homosexual men, and to lock
in the houses the lesbian women until death comes upon them, or until they
repent. Let us look at Noble Verses 4:15-17:
"If any of your women are guilty of lewdness, Take the evidence
of four (Reliable) witnesses from amongst you against them; and if they testify,
confine them to houses until
death do claim them, or God ordain for them some (other) way. (The
Noble Quran, 4:15)"
"If two men among you are guilty of lewdness, punish
them both. If they repent and amend, Leave them alone; for God
is Oft-returning, Most Merciful. (The
Noble Quran, 4:16)"
accept the repentance of those who do evil in
and repent soon afterwards; to them will Allah turn in mercy: For Allah is full
of knowledge and wisdom. (The
Noble Quran, 4:17)"
the punishment for the gay men?
It was left open for the Islamic court to judge on based on each
individual situation. However, if the CONVICTED
any crime goes back to doing the same crime that he was convicted and punished
for, then his punishment could reach the death penalty as I already showed in
the Noble Verse above. Also, notice again in Noble
Verse 4:17 above,
Allah Almighty accepts the repentance of those who
do evil in ignorance.
The Islamic court would most likely grant the benefit of the doubt to the felons
who do their crimes the first time, as this is almost always the standard
practice for all courts all around the world. But if you get convicted again,
then the punishment would be much more severe.
I hope this helps, insha'Allah.
