Salam! I'm a Muslim convert trying to figure out the truth because I'm very confused. I was under the impression that homosexual marriage wasn't allowed to occur but I came across a blog by a woman and says it's not haram because the people of Lut were only guilty of rape or something. I'm not gay but I'm concerned because I don't know which is correct and if someone asks me about homosexuality in Islam I don't know what to say and I don't want to tell someone something wrong

Wa alaikum salam,

That is a lie which some people who are not willing to submit completely to Allah have invented and some of the people who ignorant about the Qur’an have followed them in this belief. Homosexual marriage is not allowed in Islam in anyway and its impossible to try and justify in any way. Once I read something about someone using the linguistics in surah Al-Ankaboot to say that their sin was rape and not sodomy (and maybe they were raping people too, idk) but this opens up doors to say that Islam is an evil and barbaric religion (I’ll explain why soon)

The Qur’an is an amazing book, Allah says

"And We did not send before you any messenger or prophet except that when he spoke [or recited], Satan threw into it [some misunderstanding]. But Allah abolishes that which Satan throws in; then Allah makes precise His verses. And Allah is Knowing and Wise.

[That is] so He may make what Satan throws in a trial for those within whose hearts is disease and those hard of heart. And indeed, the wrongdoers are in extreme dissension.

And so those who were given knowledge may know that it is the truth from your Lord and [therefore] believe in it, and their hearts humbly submit to it. And indeed is Allah the Guide of those who have believed to a straight path.” (22:52-54)

The Qur’an must be completely coherent, so what you will always find with any deviant belief which is derived from the Qur’an is that it does not fit in with the coherency of Islam and the Qur’an because Allah has made his verses precise. So if we were to now take the assumption that rape was the sin of this nation and look else where in the Qur’an we find that Allah says

Indeed, you approach men with desire, instead of women. Rather, you are a transgressing people.” (7:81)

And this ayah would then imply that Allah is saying “why rape men when ive allowed you to rape women?” and this goes against even the most ignorant muslims understanding of the deen because we all recognise rape to be an evil thing. 

Muslims who say things like this need to stop making islam suit their desires and seem more appealing to the west tbh

Allah says

"O you who have believed, enter into Islam completely [and perfectly] and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is to you a clear enemy." (2:208)

hope that answers your question :)

Possibly the last day of the month of the Qur’an :( the end of Ramadhan is one of the saddest events of the year but its followed by eid, its always the most emotionally conflicting time of the year for me lol May Allah let us live to see many more Ramadhans

aburayyaan:

Once ‘Umar Ibn ‘Abdul ‘Azeez was advised:

“O ‘Umar, beware of being the ally of Allah in open, while being His enemy in secret. If one’s nature in open and secret do not equate then he is a hypocrite, and the hypocrites occupy the lowest level in Hellfire.”

(Al-Bayhaqi, Al-Zuhd Al-Kabeer, p.100)

What's the diff between witr and maghrib? performance wise

The prophet (saw) forbid that we pray witr the same way as magrib, so for the 3 raka’ah witr, the prophet (saw) would either pray 3 raka’ah together and only sit for tashahud on the last raka’ah or he would pray 2 with the tashahud, say salam and then pray one more raka’ah.

Heres a link on islamqa which explains it more http://islamqa.info/en/38230

Does Laylat-ul-Qadr change times every Ramadan? I assumed it was on one particular night.

Theres a difference of opinion on that, some say its on the same night every year and others say the night changes every year. Thats why the best thing to do is treat every night of the last 10 days of Ramadhan as laylatul qadr so that you dont miss out. If you rest one night, you might have missed out on it.

. I struggle with one sin and I'm afraid because I keep doing it it will be my downfall on the day of judgement. I don't know how to even make taubah because I've read online that there's requirements for it and I'm afraid I don't meet the one that says you promise to give up the sin because I'm trying to but I know I'll fall back into it but I'm still trying to stop and I feel very bad. I don't even know how to express the despair i feel. I know He is merciful but I don't meet the requirements

Allah never asked that you guarantee the future and promise that you will not return to the sin. All Allah asks from you is to be sincere in turning back to him, and that includes sincerely not intending to go back to the sin again (not guaranteeing that you won’t). Even if you fall into the same sin a billion times, so long as you sincerely turn back to Allah each time, Allah will continue to forgive you. Never despair in Allahs mercy because no sin is greater than Allahs forgiveness and mercy. And ask Allah to help you abandon the sin, dont leave it up to yourself because we are all weak, so seek help in Allah through patience and salah
