A question of identity November 5, 2006Posted by Mujahid Mustaqim in Advice, Concepts, StraightWay.
A resource I have long been impressed by is the Cyber Counselor section at Islam Online, possibly the biggest Islamic site out there. When I formed StraightWay with its website in 2002, IOL was almost the only place I could find existing resources on Islam and homosexuality, including both rulings and advice. I even enjoyed a short discussion with Dr. Nadia El-Awady, following a research she published there in 2003.
This is a recent question to the Cyber Counselor, with an answer by Hwaa Irfan, the section’s editor:
She kindly gave a link to our site, which I’m sorry to say we haven’t updated in a long time. That is set to change soon with a revamp – pray for us please. Some people have felt that this blog is too focused on critique, with not enough advice. That’s possibly true, but once we get the new site going, the balance should be just right, in sha’ Allah.
UPDATE: Here’s another one from IOL: “Fear of What I am Becoming”
