Can Muslims be LGBTQ+?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is it allowed in Islam for a girl to fall in love with another girl or a boy to fall in love with another boy?

Bismillaah

A: It is really unimaginable and inconceivable to imagine a woman in love with a woman or a man in love with a man. Any normal person who is sound in his mind will never ever think of asking whether lesbianism and homosexuality has any place in Islam. These are such disgusting and detestable sins that one feels ashamed to expose before people. Even if the president of any country has a gay partner, he will never wish to publicly announce the filthy relationship he has with his gay partner or inform the people of his so called marriage to him. Rather, he would conceal this embarrassment and disgrace knowing that these filthy and disgusting acts goes against the very fiber of humanity. This abnormal behaviour is generally created through one coming into contact with these types of dirty literature, associating with these types of filthy people or viewing these types of disgusting scenes. The Qur’an has outlined the position of people who commit these major crimes. Allah Ta’ala destroyed the entire nation of Hazrat Loot (Alaihis Salaam) due to them being involved in the sin of homosexuality. For further details refer to http://muftionline.co.za/node/6560

And Allah Ta’ala (ุงู„ู„ู‡ ุชุนุงู„ู‰) knows best.
