Adultery and Homosexuality

ADULTERY AND HOMOSEXUALITY

Any married or single person who cohabits or has sexual intercourse with another person who is not his or her spouse has committed adultery, which is a crime in most of the religions, including Islam, the last message sent down from God to protect Humanity from all evil acts.

Allaah says: “And come not near to the unlawful sexual intercourse. Verily, it is a Fâhishah [i.e. anything that transgresses its limits (a great sin)], and an evil way (that leads one to Hell unless Allâh forgives him)”. (Qur’an 17:32)

From the above verse it is clear and apparent that Islam forbids not only the act of adultery but all acts that invite and encourage the act of Adultery. Islam shuts the door to the root of every evil.

Allaah said: “The woman and the man guilty of fornication - lash each of them with a hundred lashes. Let not compassion move you in their case, in a matter prescribed by Allaah, if you believe in Allaah and the Last day and let a group of believers witness their punishment”. (Qur’an 24:2)

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “There are three such people with whom Allaah will not speak to (with words of mercy and kindness) nor will Allaah look at them (with eyes of mercy) nor will Allaah purify them, and for them is a painful punishment:

• An old person who commits Adultery.

• A king or leader who is exceptionally deceptive (he lies a lot).

• A needy person who is proud. (narrated By Muslim)

PUNISHMENT IN HELLFIRE:

In a Hadeeth narrated by Samurah (May Allaah be pleased with her) regarding a dream of prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), it is mentioned that Gabriel came to prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to show him some signs, prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “We walked until we came to something that looked like an oven. Its top section was narrow and the inside was broad. From it sounds of screaming and noise were heard, We looked inside and we saw naked men and women. We also saw flames from beneath them. When these flames scorched them, they screamed.” I asked Gabriel: “Who are these people?” He replied, “These are the males and females who committed the grave act of Adultery. This will be their punishment till the day of judgment.” (Bukhari)

PRECAUTION:

Narrated AbuSaeed al-Khudri: The prophet (peace be upon him) said: A man should not look at the private parts of another man, and a woman should not look at the private parts of another woman. A man should not lie with another man without wearing lower garment under one cover; and a woman should not lie with another woman without wearing lower garment under one cover.(Abu Dawood)

HOMOSEXUALITY AND ITS DISASTROUS CONSEQUENCES:

Homosexuality is a moral disorder. It is a moral disease, a sin and corruption, No person is born homosexual, just like no one is born a thief, a liar or murderer. People acquire these evil habits due to a lack of proper guidance and education.

There are many reasons why it is forbidden in Islam. Homosexuality is dangerous for the health of the individuals and for the society. It is a main cause of one of the most harmful and fatal diseases. It is disgraceful for both men and women. It degrades a person. Islam teaches that men should be men and women should be women. Homosexuality deprives a man of his manhood and a woman of her womanhood. It is the most un-natural way of life.

Homosexuality leads to the destruction of family life. The Quran has mentioned the story of the nation of prophet Lût (peace be upon him) in this regard. Hence prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “I fear for my nation that they become involved in the act of the nation of Lût, and whosoever does such an action is accursed.” Then prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said thrice: “May Allaah curse the person who does the act of the nation of Lût.” (Kitâb-ul-Kabair)

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) Speaks to Youth: He said: “O young men, who amongst you can afford to get married, should marry, for this will be a means of restraining the eyes from casting an evil glance and keeping one pure and chaste.”

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) encouraged men and women to become married so that they be saved from sin and the wrath
of Allaah.

THE HARMS OF ADULTERY, HOMOSEXUALITY AND LESBIANISM ARE MANIFOLD:

1.             Allaah will be very angry.

2.             The reckoning in the hereafter will be very severe.

3.             The blessing of life is lost.

4.             He/she is deprived from doing good deeds.

5.             He/she becomes hated and cursed in the eyes of the common people.

6.             The nation involved in adultery and homosexuality will be afflicted with droughts.

7.             The spreading of diseases and plagues.

8.             The destruction of the locality.

9.             The cause of earthquakes.

10.           The birth of illegitimate children.

THE RESULT OF YOUNG PEOPLE OF MARRIAGEABLE AGE WHO DO NOT GET MARRIED:

When there is no fear of Allaah in a person’s life, the passions of such a person are fulfilled in one of the following ways:

1. Having unlawful relationships with men or women.

2. Having mistresses.

3. Visiting escort agencies and prostitutes.

4. Frequenting clubs or discos.
5. Reading pornographic material.
6. Gazing at women with lust.

ADULTERY AND HOMOSEXUALITY AND AIDS:

AIDS spread as a result of the spread of adultery: Sodomy (homosexuality) is one of the most wicked and ugliest crimes. It indicates the deviation of inborn nature, corruption in the mind and perversion. It denotes sexual intercourse between two males or between a male and a female where male has sex with a female in
the anus.

Allaah the Almighty said: “Do you approach males among mankind? And leave what your lord has created for you to be your wives? But you are a people transgressing” (Qur’an 26:165)

In Arabic it is known as Liwaat, adjective of prophet Lut’s people, who were the first people to have practiced this act, God the Almighty punished the people of Lut most severely by making the earth sink under them; they were rained with stones as a punishment for their dirty act.
Quranic verses were revealed condemning their act, which is still being recited throughout the world and will continue to be recited for generations
to come.

THE PUNISHMENT OF ALLAAH:

Allaah the Almighty said: “So when Our Command came, We turned (the towns of Sodom) upside down, and rained on them stones of layered hard clay,
in a well-arranged manner one after another, marked from your Lord; and they are not ever far from the
evil-doers”
(Qur’an 11:82-83).

This has been proven in the history of mankind. God punished them by killing them all, so that not a single criminal would remain alive would remain to transmit any social and/or physical diseases to ancestor generation. God wants man’s life to be clean of the dirt of vice and perversion; hence, the prophet’s guidance came to show us the great atrocity of this crime in the prophetic traditions which made the path of truth clear to be taken.

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “Allaah does not look at a man who went in unto a man, or a woman in her anus.” Abu Hurayrah also reported that the prophet (peace be upon him) said: “May he be cursed, he who does the deed of the people of Lut (Homosexuality).” ‘Curse’ means the dismissal from the mercy of Allaah the Almighty. This is deserved because it is one of the most heinous sins.

In the 21st century Allaah decreed to send to those who commit sodomy a wild dragon (AIDS) in order to awaken the sleepy and cause horror in the hearts of those whose insight has been blinded by false civilization. How could they be prevented without having any deterrent system or considerable values? The 21st century civilization has paddled in the liberty of sex, and did not leave any virtue without fooling with it, or honour or chastity without destroying its pillars, nor left women’s dignity without desecrating it.

AIDS has been a cry that turned the life of the west upside down. It has been a stigma on those who avoided marriage and practiced sodomy as a way of living.

Unfortunately, “Purity,” “chastity” and “virgin women” are words that are being repeated by millions. They had been absent for long years in vice and immorality.

The only way to avoid AIDS is the confinement of men to an honest marital relationship. If man had done so, the possibility of contracting this disease will be almost impossible; hence, the accuracy of the Islamic rules explained by the prophetic traditions.

SEXUAL RISKS:

There are a number of pressing sexually related public health and social policy issues facing countries around the world today. According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in the United States a teen becomes pregnant every 30 seconds, and every 13 seconds a teen contracts a sexually transmitted disease (STD). Another serious sexually transmitted disease is syphilis, which if left untreated for many years, can lead to paralysis, psychiatric illness, and death.

THE SOLUTIONS:

To get married, marriage in Islam is very simple, easy and full of blessings (barakah).

If one cannot get married due to some valid reasons, he/she should resort to the following:

1. Keep fast and be patient.

2. Protect the eyes from looking at strange men/women.

3. To avoid mixed gatherings.

4. To have the thought that Allaah is at all times watching and aware of your actions.

5. To refrain from sitting and working in privacy with strange women.

6. Males should fulfill the rights of their wives i.e. looking after them. This will prevent women from treading the
wrong path.

7. To be wary of the dictates of the Satan and the soul (nafs).

8. To ask Allaah for protection from disobedience.

Allaah said: “Tell the believing men to lower their gaze and guard their private parts. That is purer for them. Indeed, Allaah is acquainted with that you do. And tell the believing women to lower their gaze and guard their private parts...”
(Qur’an 24-30-31).
