DESTRUCTIVENESS OF ADULTERY AND HOMOSEXUALITY IN THE LIGHT OF THE HADITH

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhuma)  narrated that the Holy Prophet (Salllahu Alaihi Wa Salam)  is reported to have said, “When an adulterer commits adultery, then at that time he is not a momin.” (In other words he is deprived of the qualities of a momin) (Bukhari Shareef)

Hazrat Amr ibnil A’as (radi Allahu anhuma) says, “I heard the Holy Prophet (Salllahu Alaihi Wa Salam) saying that any nation in which adultery becomes common, will be faced with drought and that nation in which bribery becomes common, then such a nation will always be locked in the apprehension and fear of their enemies.” (Mishkaat Shareef)

Hazrat Jaabir (radi Allahu anhuma)  reports that a certain man committed adultery with a certain female, so the Prophet (Salllahu Alaihi Wa Salam) commanded him to be lashed. It was then mentioned that he was married, so the Prophet (Salllahu Alaihi Wa Salam) ordered that he be stoned to death. (Abu Dawood)

 It is reported on the authority of Hazrat Ibn Abbas (radi Allahu anhuma) and Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhuma). One who does what the people of Lut did (in other words they committed acts of sodomy), then such persons are cursed. (Zareen)

It is also narrated by the same, from Hazrat Ibn Abbas (radi Allahu anhuma) that Hazrat Ali (radi Allahu anhuma) burnt both the one who did such an action of sodomy and the one who allowed such an action and Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (radi Allahu anhuma) ordered a wall to be dropped on top of them.

 Note: If this were a Muslim country and Islamic Laws prevailed, then the adulterer and adulteress would both be lashed or stoned to death. In other words they would be pelted until they died. But in this time (as we are not in a Muslim Country), the entire Muslim community should completely boycott those involved in adulterous relationships.

We should stop all communications with such people. In other words we should not eat, drink, sit, walk, make salaam or have any other Islamic relationship with them, until such time that they sincerely make tauba (repent) and abstain from this sinful action in the future.

Those Muslim who do not do this and continue to associate with such sinful persons, they too are sinful. As for those who have homosexual relationships and are involved in sodomy, then the Hadith is clear about the law that is passed on them, but in this time as we are not in an Islamic country, we should boycott such people and have no relationship with them whatsoever.

We should be so hard upon them and shun them to such an extent that they may realize their wrong and repent and abstain from this cursed and sinful behavior. If Muslims remain silent over this and they condone this and let other Muslims who are involved in this continue associating with them etc. then they too are sinful. We should fear the wrath of Allah and look back in history to nations who have been completed destroyed due to such evil practices.
