Anonymous asked: So what's your take on the story of Prophet Lut (A.S.)'s people? Allah is the Most Merciful but He (SWT) is also the Most Wise and Most Just.
From my understanding, it was about lust, rape, sodomy, and possibly pedophilia, but I’m not sure as I’m not a scholar. Just from the behaviour, it’s obvious it was not only about homosexuality or being inclined toward the same gender.
We know from the mukhannathun that just being queer isn’t wrong, as they used to visit the wives of the Prophet SAWS and the only time the Prophet SAWS had a problem with it was when one was describing the bodies of the women to other men.
Honestly, I’m unsure because this is such a complicated matter. I don’t know if gay marriage is allowed in Islam, or if gay sex is, but I do know that just being gay is not wrong and you can still have a place in the Islamic society if you are.
