Q: My question is, how should we treat the act of sinning, specifically homosexuality amongst the non-believers. How are the non-believers suppose to be treated in an Islamic country, and what do we do if they are committing Zina and Homosexuality in a Muslim and Non-Muslim country? I believe Allah wants us to be merciful Alhumdulilah, but how are we suppose to perceive these acts done by non-believers? Do non-believers get the same punishment as a Muslim would if they practise Zina and Homosexuality in a Muslim country, and what if they do this in a non Muslim country like America? how should we go by this, since I live in a non-Muslim country, and I am a convert Alhumdulillah.
A: In a non Muslim country we do not have control over the non Muslims. Hence the more sensible thing for us to do is to totally abandon their ways and remain firm on our values.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا عَلَيْكُمْ أَنفُسَكُمْ لَا يَضُرُّكُم مَّن ضَلَّ إِذَا اهْتَدَيْتُمْ إِلَى اللَّـهِ مَرْجِعُكُمْ جَمِيعًا فَيُنَبِّئُكُم بِمَا كُنتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ ﴿المائدة: ١٠٥﴾
