Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu me the Peace and blessings of Allah be upon you all. As we hear all the time people say that Islam is a way of life. And that's true. Islam is a way of life individually how we deal with ourselves when we are by ourselves with our families, and in society. And as we know, Islam does address societal issues. It addresses the society, the societal etiquette and how we should act in a society amongst one another. What are the do's and don'ts, if you will? Well, one of the things that last month Allah mentions is the whole concept of what we know as homosexuality. Now, it's important for us to understand
that homosexuality islamically is that which is forbidden, there is no difference of opinion on whether it is permissible for a man to have a relationship with another man to where it leads to sexually that is impermissible and primarily because it does not lead to any offspring. But if someone was to be that that is between them in a lawsuit kind of who what to either, but for us as Muslims, we say generically, homosexuality is impermissible is not allow for a man to try to marry another man or a woman otherwise, and Allah subhanaw taala addresses this, particularly during the time of Prophet lute. Well, last month, Allah says in the 20th Jews chapter number 27, verses 54
through 58. Allah subhanaw taala gives a brief snippet of what Luke said to the people he says that there will be lemon shaped on our gene will loop on if Paul and he called me he attacked tone and fascia were entombed to basilone in accumulator to nebrija chahatein min Dune, and he said, bell and to Omen tahnoon. Well, Allah says pollutant is solid economy and like when he said to his people, are you verily
permitting this act, and you all can see, are you all coming to this fascist, fascist, fascist, fascist, that is a sin or an abominable act? And you all can see you all know what's going on? And then he says exactly what type of fascist it is. You know, there are many things that we see in entertainment and movies, whether it's, you know, Zina adultery, a man with a woman is that which is not permissible without marriage. And even worse than that, as we believe as homosexuality is that which is not permissible. So Allah says in the loot ass, are you very approaching men, men approaching men, show what's in with your desires and not approaching women. But until ominto
genuine rather you are people that are doing the actions of the people of ignorance that you are going beyond the bounds of what Allah has provided from you for the from the opposite gender, and then the last panel mentions their rebuttal and this is where we want to capitalize on for Matt Kana joab hakomi he inla oncall who agreed you absolutely mean Corey ethical in NASA and yet at O'Hare own a law says and they did not answer except that they said of Ritu Anna Luton and let expel the people of loot that people that are following him his family Allah Luton, expelled them, get kicked them out, kick them out of our of our locality of the country of whatever area we are in, kick him
out why we'll look at their reason. In hoonah swing it's very the are people that want to purify themselves. Look how they ridicule him. Now think of the names that you as a Muslim. The things that you try to do and how people in society may make fun of you because you're trying to be moral. You're trying to get married, what you're trying to save yourself, you know, these actions of purity that if they were to sit and think about it, and as a matter of fact, if they were honest, they say yes, it's true. It's a good thing. But this is what I want to do. I want to obey my thirst. So they said, Come out for Vallely, they're trying to be pure, you know, they want to be pure and holy.
This is what a lawsuit kind of what data mentions that they said so a lawsuit kind of what the other mentions after that how after he says from Canada call me in their own Call of Cthulhu absolutely mean Korea to come in who knows?
And then last month, Allah says and we have set upon them a fire I'm putting out a rain full of stones. Well I'm gonna lay him upon for Sir amapola mundaring. So Allah subhanaw taala mentions that we sent upon him plentiful rain of stones, it was actually stones that descended upon them, and it was a painful torment for the ones that were warned. And this is what allows pantalla mentioned a couple of verses after that because before that last month, Allah mentions that he says fine Jay now who I know who ylim righto but delnor had minimal hobby Dean so right after he mentioned his the the answer of the people saying that they expel a lot because they're trying to be pure and his family
that lost without it makes a very important distinction. He says we saved him and his people
except his wife, we predestined that she would be from the people that stayed. Why did she stay the scholars mentioned, she didn't practice the act of homosexuality, as some scholars mentioned, but she did not make in car. She did not censure that act that was going on in society. And this is very important for us as Muslims. When we see something in society, it's important for you to have an opinion on it, whether with at least with your in yourself with your family members, and if you are in a position, you have to see it in a manner that is conducive to still calling those people to that which is good. But the punishment of a lawsuit kind of Madonna came to them in the fashion in
the way of raining sending a rainstorm of stones for their punishing them as we know as the people of Sodom and Gomorrah. So it's important for us to know brothers and sisters from this chapter of from these verses.
That it's important Yes, Islam does call us to call into the good but in the same token, one has to prevent the evil, prevent the evil, especially if as if it is in a society from spreading and taking that prevention preventative measures and that which is conducive for yourself, your family and society. May Allah subhana wa tada protect us all from any immoral actions to creep into our homes and in our hearts, a sentiment akin to light or better cats. Thank you.
