Q: What is the Islamic stance about a (Muslim) man who has sexual attraction towards men & not towards women? He has tried everything – consultation from authentic scholars spiritual healers & psychotherapists, prayers & invocations, & even marriage, but all in vain. What should he do? What should he believe about himself? Is he a sinner? Will he be sent to hell?


A: The best thing for such a person is to live a life of total isolation. He should not meet and associate with people. He should not even go near people.

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