Why is our youth turning away from Islam. One factor explained by Sheikh Mohammed Al-Hilli
Guest posted a topic in Social/Family/PersonalAssalam Alaykum, my name is Basheera and I am a Shia woman. I was born into an incredibly strict Sunni family, but happily I converted a few years ago when I was 18. I had severe depression trying to figure out my identity and purpose of life until I found Shia Islam, and luckily now I am much healthier, mentally and physically. However though, I have a big problem. Please please read this whole thing before you comment and don't insult me because I've been seeking help for years, from imams (all Sunni though) and Muslim friends. This may be a bit long but I am seeking answers and help. While I am a Muslim, I am lgbt. I have known since I was 11, almost 12 years ago. I tried to stop it and told myself that I was only attracted to men, that this was a phase and I'd get over it, and I tried to force myself to look into husbands. I break down thinking about it and cry over my future. I have known for years and it wasn't a problem at first, but because now I am a practicing muslim I feel... fake? I'm not sure how to feel but I cannot stop my feelings. I know now, 12 years later, that it is not a phase and I cannot ignore it no matter how hard I try. People told me that I choose the way I feel, but wallahi I would never ever choose to feel like this. I worry about my future and if I truly am a Muslim. I talked to imams and read the Quran and many Hadiths regarding lgbt. The imams told me that lgbt muslims do exist, however they must hold back their feelings to stop themselves from committing haram, and in a way it is a form of Jihad. I understood that and I have done that for years, holding myself back and hiding in secret. As I said before I am a convert and a practicing muslim, I love islam but this problem has always been in the back of my mind and I don't think I can hold it back/ignore it anymore. My question is, does being lgbt automatically mean I'm not a muslim? Does it contradict Islam? (Wallahi I've been lgbt for many years and I swear on the Quran I would not feel this way if it was a choice. I hate it so much). Would I ever be accepted as a muslim by a Shia scholar? Am I haram? Even when I keep my feelings to myself? I am crying writing this, I have talked to many Sunni imams, but now that I'm Shia I want an answer from Shias. I hope nobody thinks ill of me or insults me, I am trying my best. Please someone help me and answer me, do I contradict Islam? Am I a fake muslim? Should I leave Islam (am I making Islam look bad)? Thank you so much for reading and please give your honest opinion, shukran.
aaaz1618 posted a topic in Site Support/FeedbackAssalam alaikum, Out of interest, what is the rule about LGBT topics, is there one? I ask because every thread eventually gets locked, or on the odd occasion it doesn't, staff have to sift through the thread and remove inappropriate responses. There are a list of topics that we are not allowed to post about on the rules page which I assume receive the same treatment as LGBT ones, closed for further responses. I appreciate that you want to encourage healthy discussion, I respect that a lot, but realistically does that happen on this topic? As a moderator said, the silent majority is tired of such posts and you as staff must be tired of having to deal with them. Would it therefore make any sense to add it to the list of things one can't discuss, so that such topics are closed straight away? Just a thought.
LGBT couples in story books
Guest posted a topic in Jurisprudence/LawsAlsalam wa'alaikum everyone. The reasoning for opening this topic is not to discuss the right or wrong of being LGBT, but rather to understand any Islamic ruling that may apply to reading a fictional book featuring a lgbt couple. I recently started reading a book, and about half way through I realized that the book features an lgbt couple. Is it haram of me to continue reading? I would assume that because its just a book it would be okay, however I would rather be safe than sorry. Also, what about a movie featuring an lgbt couple? In addition, since we are on the topic of lgbt, two of my friends who are also Shia Muslim have recently come out to me as members of the lgbt community. Is it wrong of me to want to support them? They are good friends of mine, and I want to know the best way of handling this situation without it becoming haram.

From a Same-Sex Attracted Muslim.
yasahebalzaman.313 posted a topic in General Islamic Discussionhttp://muslimmatters.org/2016/08/22/from-a-same-sex-attracted-muslim-between-denial-of-reality-and-distortion-of-religion/ Between denial of reality and distortion of religion. Finally someone sane spoke up truthfully on this matter. It's true many of our brothers and sisters are experiencing such desires, but it doesn't mean that we should give up and submit to them. Because committing the act itself will make you open a door that might never be closed, burdening you and making you indulge in such a lifestyle that will make you lost forever. You will feel purposeless like you have betrayed yourself submitting like that to this evil world, becoming it's slave... Nowadays the devil has the most powerful tools and one of them is the Media... With such powerful tools comes Great Responsibility.
