There was a thread several days ago where people started to debate about homosexuality. One Shia brother said he was gay. He didn't seem to view it as a major sin. I would be curious to know how many people here view it as being acceptable to be Shia and gay at the same time? Do you view it as something that should be repented of? Some relevant quotes from the Imams (A): Imam Ali (A) said: “Sodomy is a Greater Sin and carries punishment when a man mounts upon another man but does not penetrate. If he penetrates, it is kufr” - al-Kāfi Huzaifa ibn Mansur says: “I enquired regarding sodomy which is a Greater Sin from Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq ((عليه السلام).)”. The Imam replied: “To press the sexual organ between the thighs in an illegal way” I asked, “Who is the person who commits sodomy”. Imam ((عليه السلام).) replied; “One who has disbelieved in what Allah has revealed to his Messenger (the Holy Qur’an).” Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq ((عليه السلام).) was queried by Abu Basir regarding the verse: “So when our decree came to pass, we turned them upside down and rained down upon them stones, of what has been decreed, one after another.” (Surah Hūd 11:82) Imam ((عليه السلام).) explained: “There is no one who leaves this world while considering sodomy Halāl, but that Allah hits him with one of the stones that had fallen on the people of Hazrat Lut ((عليه السلام).).”
I was raised Christian, but recently have been looking into Islam, which makes a lot more sense to me... However, I have a problem - I'm homosexual. As homosexuality isn't permissible in Islam, is it still possible to me to convert to Islam? Is simply having homosexual desires impermissible, or is it just sexual acts? If so, providing I am celibate, I will have no issue? Please help...
