HomoSexuality : Worse than Murder – By Shaykh Abdul-Qaadir Al-Junayd
The proof that it is worse than murder is that Allaah has made the punishment of the murderer to be at the discretion of the heir. If he (the heir) wills then he is executed and if he wills then he pardons him. Whereas He has predetermined the execution of he who does the action of the people of Lut.
The Imaam Al-‘Uthaymeen, may Allaah have mercy upon him, has said:
“As for the male having intercourse with (another) male then this is a great act of lewdness and a despicable crime. It is a corrupter of the Dunyaa and the religion. It is a destroyer of manners and an annihilator of manhood. It is corruption of the society and a killer of morality. It is cause for the vanishing of goodness and blessings and it brings about evil and iniquities. It is an axe of destruction and demolition. It is a cause for humiliation, disgrace, and shame. Enlightened minds abhor it and sound Fitrahs reject it. The divine legislations censure it and consider it an abomination. This is because the action of the people of Lut is a great harm and a vile form of oppression. For it is oppression to the one who does it, due to that which he has dragged himself to from disgrace and shame; and he has driven himself to that which contains death and destruction. It is also oppression to the one whom it is done to, for he has lowered and humiliated himself; and he is pleased with lowliness and degeneration for himself, as well as the annihilation of his manhood. For he is amongst men having the status of women; and there is a darkness of humiliation upon his face which will not be removed until he dies. It is oppression to the entire society due to that which it leads to from the unleashing of calamities and iniquities. Allaah has already narrated to us that which occurred to the people of Lut from punishment. He said, after He had informed us of the story of their death and destruction:
وَمَا هِيَ مِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ بِبَعِيدٍ
And they (the Punishments) are not ever far from the Zâlimûn (evil-doers). (Hud 11:83)
When this despicable act spreads within the society and Allaah does not punish them by destroying their homes, then He unleashes upon them that which is worse than that. He unleashes upon them the inversion of the hearts, the twisting of their outlook, and the subjugation of their minds; such that they are silent about falsehood or their evil actions are beautified for them so that they deem them to be good.”
End of his (Shaykh ‘Uthaymeen’s) speech.
