Check your attitude July 14, 2009

Posted by Rasheed Eldin in Shari'ah.

From this old article, a quote from Shaykh Hamza Yusuf:

“If one considers it acceptable in Islam [to engage in homosexuality], then he or she is not considered to be a Muslim by consensus of the scholars. On this I know no debate whatsoever.”

To understand why, see The Dangers of Denial. NB: I changed the gloss in the square brackets because the author’s version (“to be gay”) was very imprecise.

By the way, Shaykh Hamza is well known not to be a “Wahhabi” and the usual smears used by homosexualist Muslims. May Allah guide them to repent and stay within this religion, rather than have all their supposed good deeds go to waste and meet eternal punishment in the Hereafter.

Update: I just came across this rather anti-homosexual article by GF Haddad, one of the most anti-Wahhabi writers around. It’s on a site run by Sufi scholars – see also here and here.
