An American “Imam” Legitimizing Homosexuality

basamalah1

Question:

There is an imam in the United States who is permitting homosexuality and the marriage between two men. He says it is lawful in Islam, what is the ruling?

Country: United States

Answer:

wa alaykum salam wa rahmatuLlahi wa barakatuHu,

In Islam, homosexuality is unlawful without a doubt. Any individual who says it is permissible has left the fold of Islam. This ruling is stated in Kifayat al-Akhyar pg. 630, and other scholars related it too.

And Allah knows best.
