Homosexuality is one of the most disgusting sins and greatest crimes in Islam and other divine religions. It is not only a sin, but also a punishable crime against God.
Concerning marriage, Allah has said: “And of His signs is that He created for you mates from your own selves that you may take comfort in them, and He ordained affection and mercy between you. There are indeed signs in that for a people who reflect.” (30:21)
The word â€œtaking comfortâ€ or â€œfinding restâ€ is mentioned in other verses for â€œthe day and nightâ€. The Almighty Allah says: “It is He who made the night for you, that you may rest in it, and the day to provide visibility. There are indeed signs in that for people who listen.” (10: 67)
Let’s ask a question: suppose that a group of people cannot sleep at night, either for the necessity of work or because of a disease; Would it be ok to suggest sleeplessness as a lifestyle to others and promote it in the world? The main problem with homosexuals is that their behaviors is against human nature and it cannot be advertised as a lifestyle.
Therefore, they may be pleased with their relation but it is like living in a tiny ignorant bubble. Put differently, their experience is unreal and false pleasure.
We know that human beings are naturally religious beings, because they permanently have worshiped a sublime being taken as their lord. Some people have found the True Sublime Being and worship Him but others went stray and worship idols, Satan or material things such as money or women. Likewise, suppose someone is used to eat feces and after a while they enjoy eating as such, or even suppose that a person is addicted to drugs and enjoy it. Would anyone agree that such behaviors can be a part of favorable lifestyle and others can follow them?
Further, completion that you mentioned has many dimensions, one of which is that man and woman together constitute one perfect productive unit. Plants or protozoa (unicellular organisms) can be self-dependent i.e. they can reproduce creatures like themselves without any need to the opposite gender. But regarding animals and human beings, male and female need each other to make a perfect unit and to constitute a complete productive unit. Does this dimension of completeness available to homosexuals?
In fact, homosexuality is a deviation from the correct path and its legitimacy does not change the reality. It has to be made crystal clear that such a sexual preference is not natural, rather a result of lack of exposure to divine guidance, and various emotional and psychological issues and diseases, which are imposed upon some people.
Acting like that, they may lead others to this action. At least, anyone who lives with them (a child, a little brother or sister etc.) would think similarly in his adulthood.
Another problem in this regard is that we should cast a holistic eye on the religious rules. Homosexuals and other deviated groups may assert from their personal perspective and question the others and ask ” what is wrong with our action? We are happy with each other and it is none of the business of others.” But in making every rule, religious or non-religious, the benefit of human beings as a whole need to be observed. Is it permissible to pass a law that all people can be homosexual? The survival of human beings is closely related to this problem.
And finally, we see that all religions unanimously banned this action and determined severe punishments for it, which shows that this action is very harmful for human beings, both physically and spiritually; since religions donât ban any proper action at all.
