Anonymous asked:Hi It's me again, just wanted to ask if you have ever read Surat Lut? Translated or not? Thanx for answering.
I have read it and firstly i’d like to state that i’m not a scholar so these are just my opinions and interpretations and in no way am i here to debate or say anyone is wrong in what they believe. I, like many others have a lot to learn. You can look at this from many angles. The people of Lot were committing many crimes one being adultery and sex out of marriage. I don’t believe any of these homosexual acts were done so within the confounds of marriage, so that there is already a big no. They only ever talk about men and not women so if i wanted to be sneaky i could say it doesn’t apply to me because i’m not a man but I feel that would be arrogant and i would feel like I’m getting myself out of trouble with loop holes while leaving others in the limelight.
There are many verses and Hadiths that state equality for all. And at the end of the day i feel a lot comes down to intention. If you’re intending to do good, and in you’re heart you’re intending to do the right thing i think that means a lot right there. If by some chance this is wrong (which i don’t feel it is as long as you follow Allah’s SWT word) On the day of judgment we will stand before him and he alone will be the only opinion that matters. I believe Allah SWT to be the most great and all forgiving, the most generous and understanding, and he will look into my heart and the heart of many others and see what has been intended, what love has been created and shared.
If homosexuality itself and not in combination with other things is indeed a sin, how do we measure which sins are worse than others? I very much doubt men who cheat on their wives get as much thrown at them or people who choose to drink and do drugs or be promiscuous have as many strangers telling them they’re wrong and having the Quran thrown at them. We must try to better ourselves as much as possible because our time on earth is limited. Time judging others is time that could be spent on ones self. So i think people should leave the judging to Allah SWT because that’s not our area anyway, our area is to make ourselves the best we can be. I know I have a lot to work on and a lot to improve but homosexuality isn’t the biggest thing I’m worried about because I know its loving, I need to work on the more hateful side of myself or the parts where i act on things I shouldn’t. I want to be the best person i can be for my creator when i meet him and for that i know i have a lot of work to do, but i look forward to it :)
