Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I am 32 year old Muslim man getting married in a couple of months. My problem is that I get sexually attracted towards boys and since childhood to till date I have multiple sexual rekationships with boys. My problem is that I don’t get attracted towards females and this issue is there with me when I was almost 7-8 years old. I met Dr’s also in this connection but after doing some test they said bilogically your male sex hormones are normal only it is mental preferance. I dont want to destroy anyones life. Requesting you to please help me in this, so that I can control my emotions and live a respectable life and also save from myself from gunnah.


A: As you are concerned not to destroy anybody’s life you should be equally concerned not to destroy your own life. There is no such a thing like mental preference. One cannot be a believer and have his own preferences. If tomorrow your mind prefers pork will you eat the same. You will have to learn to discipline yourself and become totally disinclined from these things.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
