How Should Muslims React to Homosexuality and LGBT?
What does Islam say about LGBT? Dr Yasir Qadhi explains how a Muslim should deal with urges of homosexuality and how we are expected to deal with this controversial topic from an Islamic perspective.
It is very clear from the Quran that one of the many sins that a muslim should not do is that of engaging in intercourse in sexual relationships outside marriage, and Islam has forbidden extra-marital and pre-martial intercourse. So if a Muslim finds himself or herself having same-sex impulses or attractions, we say to them you are no less of a Muslim simply because you feel this way.
In fact, if you battle those urges, then you might be a better Muslim than me because your urges are more difficult maybe and you would have to have more of a battling within yourself
So simply because a person has same sex desires, does not diminish their Imaan (faith) or their status in Islam. If they act upon it, we say to this person that you have committed a sin and repent to Allah.
