mean data on homosexuality, or like, is it prohibited in Islam? And why so? Because, like I had, like, from the past five years, I've been with so many homosexuals. It's like, I mean, their feelings that they have for the for the same sex or whatever it is. It's so true. I mean, it's like the same kind of pain, what we might feel for, for maybe our husbands or whoever it is. If it's wrong, why is it wrong?
The question that what does Islam say about homosexuality, and if it is wrong, why it is wrong? Allah says in the Quran in surah surah, chapter number 17, was committed to that come not close to adultery, for adultery, then evil opening other routes to evil.
Besides that, Allah says in surah, chapter number seven, that telling to men that do you practice your lust after men in preference to women, that means homosexuality is prohibited in Islam, in the Quran, because Almighty God made the human beings. Allah says in the Quran in surah, room, chapter number 30, verse number 21, that he has put love between the hearts of husband and wife, Almighty God has made the human being in such a way that they love the opposite sex.
Generally, naturally, no human being loved the same sex.
I'm talking about the love, which is required in husband and wife, not the platonic love, which you have between your brothers and between your sisters. Now, initially, there was a research which said
that homosexuality is genetic.
So during questions, the time somebody asked me,
the way you asking, if homosexuality is genetic,
then how is that human being to blame?
It came from his parents. So why he to blame? Like I say, if someone loves someone else, so why should he be blamed?
I said, this is a research.
This is a hypothesis. It's not a fact. And later on, we came to know that this hypothesis was wrong.
And the person who propounded this hypothesis himself was homosexual.
So homosexuality is not genetic. It comes today, science tells us how do homosexuals
evolve. Because what Almighty God has given permission for human being what's permitted, you get married, do Nika, you can have sex with your wife. And Islam says that while doing having sex with your wife is also worshipping Allah.
Because you're preventing the haram. You're not going outside the marital bond, to satisfy your urges that Islam today, science tells us today, research tells us that those people who have multiple life partners outside the marriage barn as compared to those who only have with the falses, they enjoy the sexual life much better than the others.
And what happens today, when you get tired with it, you go to the Western countries, you have mistresses. 510 20, no problem. You start doing unnatural things.
When you start doing unnatural things, you don't follow the law of the Creator, and you try and satisfy your urges in the wrong way. The moment you keep on doing the wrong way, then you keep on going beyond what is natural. And that is how the person becomes homosexual. It is not genetic. Because you go beyond the limits of what Almighty God has permitted you.
You try other things. You try unnatural things and find you land up by saying you do no longer enjoy having sex with the opposite sex. So you have sex with the same sex.
Sister because they've broken the law of Almighty God, and they do unrighteous things that how psychologically they become homosexual. So But naturally, if you break the law of Almighty God, that's totally wrong. And that's how it lands up a person with homosexual so they are to blame. And Islam prohibits homosexuality, even Christianity prohibit homosexuality. Most of the religions are against homosexuals. It's now the western countries are saying because in democracy, whatever majority says, You will majority wins and it's
slum majority doesn't mean dark winds, the winds.
I remember when I'd gone to Canada in 1996 The first time I went to give a lecture. In the front page, I saw a man kissing a man,
a man kissing a man. And it says that they have married each other.
Today in Western countries, if I speak against homosexuality, it's a crime.
It's a crime.
So what we realize that previously,
previously, all the countries homosexuality was a crime. Then some Western countries like Canada gave legal sanction to it today, most of the western countries, homosexuality, legal, even India, the country where they come from, they are thinking that thinking to make it legal.
To what we realize what is truth is truth. majority doesn't mean what is wrong is wrong. And in Islam, and most of the major religions of the world, homosexuality is a sin. It's a crime. It will not take you to have an will take you to help hope answer the question the system
