“If a man or a woman was created in such a way that he or she feels attracted to same gender rather than opposite gender than what is the mistake of that human being. Instead of blaming them that they are sinners, we should try to understand their feelings or help them live their life according to Islam”.
I received the above comment on my recent blog post, “LGBT Muslims: It’s Time For Acceptance?”.
Talking about LGBT, those are the words that we often hear; that “a man or a woman was created in such a way that he or she feels attracted to same gender rather than opposite gender” or I presume that in other words it means that ‘god had created them that way’.
My question is, are these people trying to put the blame on the Creator for the choice made by human beings?
Hence, in the issue of LGBT Muslims, are they trying to put the blame on Allah for creating a person “in such a way that he or she feels attracted to same gender”?
To claim, “… what is the mistake of that human being” for choosing to become an LGBT Muslim affirms the above argument that one is blaming Allah for the choice made by a human being to disobey Allah.
“Instead of blaming them that they are sinners, we should try to understand their feelings or help them live their life according to Islam”
Everyone including the LGBT Muslims must know that Islam does not only forbid Muslims from being LGBT people but Muslims must not support the LGBT movements.
As a Muslim, we judge what is right and wrong from the perspective of the Quran and the Hadith; and not from human perspectives.
Hence LGBT Muslims cannot deny the fact that they are sinners, and the society cannot tell them that being an LGBT Muslim is not a sin; there is no question about that and we cannot say otherwise.
Are we saying that we understand the feelings of the LGBT people better than Allah when we as Muslims know that Allah knows best?
Knowing that, LGBT Muslims must repent to Allah and seek forgiveness from Allah and then seek help and must not refuse to be treated.
It is crystal clear that Islam prohibits LGBT; and as Muslims we must follow the laws of Islam.
It is about accepting the facts that being an LGBT Muslim is a sin and not about blaming others and demanding others to treat LGBT people as if they have done nothing wrong.
Please stop playing the victim game.
