Congratulations on your movement. Surely, I will be one of many who discovered you through the article in the Advocate magazine.
After browsing your website and reading the many incredibly hateful comments from homophobic muslims, I thought why would you chose to cause all this ruckus.
Then, I thought what if Gandhi gave up or Martin Luther King said,"it's too much trouble."
There will be many years and much tears shed(probably blood as well) until there is any semblance of tolerance in the Islamic community on gay rights. However, you can take comfort in having begun the movement.
Sometimes I wonder Where exactly in the Quran does it say that being
gay is okay, please tell me so I can inform my muslim communtiy?
Thank you A.Amir
Subjects Include: Testimony of Revelation the book of the Bible,
Repentance, and Testimony of Murder.
Sir or Madam,
Revelation the book of the Bible is commanded. The War of Dogma has begun. I give testimony and say;
I am coming quickly. Amen. Yes, come Lord Jesus. May the Grace of the Lord Jesus be with all of you. Amen.
You are served. Testimony is Given as it is written in the last chapter and last paragraph of the book of Revelation. Obey God as it is written in the Books of the Bible. Obey God, In the way of the Groom of this country under God, our Master, Savior and Lord Jesus Son of God.
Churches, In the way of Jesus Son of God remember the way of Lord God Jehovah. Come from the suffering of Jesus Son of God. This country is founded with a suffering of Jesus Son of God. The sons of the Pilgramiage of this country made Law that is a Suffering of Jesus Son of God. The Sons of the Pilgramiage are as a Man going from his Father and Mother to cleave to his wife. Man is the Head and The Feet of the Marriage. Man is the Head and Feet of the Family as God has Given to him. Read the First book of the Bible, Noah's Ark is resting in the crest of a Mountian. Every Man, Women and Child is of the Generations of Noah.
One that speaks in the Name of Jesus that suffers in his name is an Anti-Christ. Read the Books of the Bible, Old and New Testament books.
Everyman that is being delivered before a Judge, know the books of the Bible. We are in Oath to be as it is written for man and women in the Bible. Our oath is given by the generation of us and before us. Our Oath is given by our generation after us.
Let Every Man and Women give rest for Righteousness of Judgement and prayer. Deliver yourself before the Judge and the Court Room knowing the books of the Bible, knowing righteousness. Every Man go and cut the covenant as it is written at the time Mose and with the Bible. Accept Jesus Son of God and the baptism in Water, the baptism by the Holy Spirit and the baptism in Fire.
Repent of suffering Man of the affliction of a Man that lays with a Man as a Man lays with a Women, that is a Abomination. Give testimony of the one that is committing Murder using the a Weapon that is Death from the way a man lays with a Women (all Sexual Activity). Give testimony of Indetedness to the Ministry of the Bible to the Creditor, Tax collection and Ministry of the Bible. This is a Kingdom with Ministry.
Thank You Donald Ray Floyd Jr

here to worship him as we like. please take these words and
study islam. don't start this crappy cult, for allah will punish
You better strat reading the Qur`an especially about Lut(al slama)
You might want to read too. How about the part about 'no compulsion
in matters of religion' and all the others about justice, honesty, fairness,
decency and integrity? - Sulayman X
Dear Hj Ismail,
I have to write to you as you pre qualify yourself as a born muslim from malaysia in your letter to sulaymanx and I am obliged to express my view as an opinion of another malaysian. As a muslim your stand on any subject matter must be guided by the way of Allah and the syariat as per your oath in "ibtitah" in every prayers.
It is too clear from the quran alone that homosexuals are condemned lot in islam, Sxxvi 165-166. The surah it stated that the homosexuals leave their wives in pursue of men which means that they are capable of being straight as proven by their ability to marry the opposite sex and bear children but they choose to be bent just like sulaymanx. The quran stated that men engaged in homosexual act if found guilty must be punished, Siv 16, and the hadith stated that the punishment is death. Either thrown off a tall building to death, burnt to death, stoned to death or other mode of death depending on the school of law. All the 4 main mazhabs are in agreement that homosexual act is punishable and the in all mazhab except Hanafi the punishment is equivalent to fornicating. Even performing anal sex to one wife is not allowed by the 4 mazhabs.
Queer jihad claimed that the wrath of god on soddom because the men of soddom rape men and not because of homosexuality and they twisted the verse from Sxi 77-82. But god knows this and the above mentioned two surahs were there to clear the matter and if you are not satisfied there is Sxxiii 5-7.
En. Ismail you got carried away by your emotional malay heart that you have sympathy to sulaymanx to a point that you admit gay and lesbian is a form of natural handicap. Your sympathy to sulaymanx will be construed as you approval to the struggle of queer jihad for the acceptance of gay and lesbian by the muslim and you may contribute to the destruction to the future generation of your children and grandchildren and mine too. Approval by muslims is a first step to approval by muslim authorities leading to provision of law for the rights of gay and lesbian. Prophet Luth a.s. sayings in the quran that the act of homosexuality was not the practice by any ummah before that time is to say that homosexuality was unnatural then and it is unnatural now.
Think of what will happen if the struggle of queer jihad is successful i.e. accepted by muslim authority. The islam legislation will make provision for the homosexuals. Sulaymanx will want his right to marry another man under the law of islam and in the name of Allah. Not just that, sulaymanx will want his right for polygamy and will marry more than one man and probably in combination of man and woman.
My only advise to sulaymanx is to stop your struggle for acceptance by muslims as it creates division among us. We muslims are living in the period of anomaly in the history of islam in being a weak nation like foam in the ocean and struggling to seek our strength for revival. I don't think you are a muslim if you continue your struggle to legalize anal sex amonst others at the expense of the unity of the present muslim ummah. If you are a muslim your bigger sin is to create divisions among the muslims. What you do behind close door is a matter between you and god and donÝt seek our approval as it actually doesnÝt matter for you individually but it matters for us.
If you care about these issues, how about reading what I've written
more carefully before reducing me to someone who wants to legalise anal
sex and have multiple marriage partners. In fact, if you're worried about
the state of Islam today, why don't you go back to grade school and get
a basic education? YOU are what's wrong with Islam today: ignorant, small
minded, slipshod. - Sulayman X
You are F'd up man, there is nothing more to say. Don't try to act smart by saying that 5% of people are gay. That is absolutly no indicator of false muslims who say that they are gay. 30% of Americans are Aetheists, Oh did you forget about that. Anyone who is gay is not a Muslim in my eyes. correct yourself or you will certainly feel the burning fire of hell upon you. repent and you may be fogiven, maybe......
I am Sufi Mohammed Yaqub Naqshbandi, writing in to say taht may you suffer the same fate as those that befel the people of Lut (as). Hadrat Umar-Farooq pescribed the punishment of death by stoning for your kind of low-life filthy scum.
I ask you queer, batty bashing baggage handlers to come outside my local Jamia for public execution
May you burn forever.
What sort of 'Sufi' are you? I didn't know there were murderous ones. Perhaps you've missed the point of fana. -Sulayman X
Its alot to say here.For starters I was more stunned to see muslims
giving you the salaams and feeling sympathy for you.You claim you
believe in Allah and islam, but yet you are not following Allah
commandments in the Quran.You are not following the guidance
and example of our last prophet Muhammed(saw).I ask you to listen
to sincere advice and repent to Allah before death knocks at your
door with this great sin on your hands. Allah Most High says: "Do not come
near Zina,for it is a shameful deed and an evil path.(al-Isra
<GAYS COMMIT ZINA BECAUSE MARRIGE IS NOT LEGAL FOR THEM IN ISLAM OR ANY SOCIETY>
Allah Most High says: "Of all the creatures in the world, do you approach males and leave those whom Allah created for you as your mates? But, rather, you are transgressors!"(al-sh'ura 26:165-166)
<ITS CLEARLY STATED THAT LIVING A GAY LIFE IN ISLAM IS FORBIDDEN>
How could it be otherwise, when the Prophet of Islam (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "Whoever you find committing the sin of the people of Lut (Lot), kill them, both the one who does it and the one to whom it is done" - i.e. if it is done with consent. (This hadeeth was narrated by al-Tirmidhi in his Sunan, 1376)
And Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
â?˙Nay, Allaah never commands Fahshaaâ?˘ (evil deeds, unlawful sexual intercourse). Do you say of Allaah what you know not?â?? [al-Aâ?˘raaf 7:28]
Accordingly the punishment in Islam for sodomy is death whether the two involved are married or unmarried. Said the Prophet (peace be upon him): â?˙Whomsoever you find committing the act, kill them: both the active and the passive partners.â?? (Abu Dawood, Tirmidhi, and Ibn Majah, authenticated sahih by al-Albani, Arwaaâ?˘ ul-Ghaleel 2350)
ALLAH SAYS IN THE QURAN: "AND WHATSOEVER THE MESSENGER GIVES YOU,TAKE IT,AND WHATSOEVER HE FORBIDS YOU,ABSTAIN (FROM IT), AND FEAR ALLAH. VERILY, ALLAH IS SEVERE IN PUNISHMENT." (59:7)
â?˙And (remember) Lut, when he said to his people: â?˛You commit al-faahishah (sodomy - the worst sin) which none has preceded you in (committing) among the â?˛aalameen (mankind and jinns)." Verily, you commit sodomy with men, and rob the wayfarer, and practise al-munkar (disbelief, polytheism and every kind of evil deed) in your meetings.â?˘ But his people gave no answer except,that they said: "Bring Allah's Torment upon us if you are one of the truthful." [al-â?˘Ankaboot 29:28-29].
I say to you Sulayman true muslims following the Quran and sunnah are not homophobic. We just obey Allah and don't listen to shaytans whispering of the heart and false desires. We as muslims are to give sincere advice and I just given you a whole lot of sincere advice. Now if you are true about what you said about your belief in Allah and His Messenger then you will look at your actions and rethink your decision and repent to Allah for homosexuality and leading others away from Allah's straight path.
Now I gave you proofs from Allah in the Quran and the sayings of Muhammed(saw) against homosexuality so you will have no EXCUSE ON THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT IN FRONT OF ALLAH THAT YOU WAS NOT INFORMED!!
AND NEVER WILL YOU FIND IN THE QURAN OR THE SUNNAH THAT HOMOSEXUALITY IS PERMISSABLE IN ISLAM.
SO LIKE ALLAH SAYS PROVIDE YOUR PROOF IF YOU ARE TRUTHFUL!!!!!!
AND WE ARE TO FORBID THE WRONG AND ENJOIN THE GOOD
Its kinda of hard agreeing with and coming to understand on this issue. See Islam teaches that we should come to a comprimse with eachother (only muslims)but you said yourself that in the Quran homosexuality is forbidin, so how can you go on being Gay, and say you Love Allah and yet he has Clearly stated in the Quran that its not allowed, and secondly you said that the Prophet (peace be upon him) made that statement about Gay people, and your resonse was that a person of his spiritual stature could have found a more compassionate answer than that, see when you say that your are judgeing his statement and if you are forgetting the Prhopet (peace be upon him)was perfect man. and lastly you said, "I have begged to be made 'whole', to be 'normal' -- such prayers were never answered. I have told Allah again and again that if He is displeased with who I am, then I will change, that nothing matters to me as much as pleasing Him and living my life honestly and decently. At any point in time He could have laid it upon my heart that homosexuality was wrong. He has not. Why? Should I continue begging Him to condemn and reject me, or should I arrive at the conclusion that I am what He made me to be and leave it at that?" but later said that you have been celebate because you are so caught up in worshippin Allah, will dont you think that a way of Allah tellin you its wrong. will im lookin forward to hearing from you.
I have been looking for information on Islam fo some time, particularly
as it has encountered the gay community. I found "Queer Jihad" on
the internet today, and have found it very helpful. I really
appreciated your "Confessions", and your courage in telling your
story. Thanks for making all of this available.
I hope you will write when you have a moment.
Keep up the great work. Let's smash homophobia.Matt
dear mr sulayman, assalamualikum, i did
not get the idea of what your site intents to do. Is it trying to promote
or treat Gay and Lesbianism as a part of socialising irrespective of it
being a crime punishable by death for both the active and the passive partner
at the moment the news of its activity is heard.
It may be a way to prosecute tommorow that alcohol and pork also have to be tolerated since people desire to have it. Is not controlling ones desire a sacrifice and test of faith. Even when we realise and are to condemn it you have gone ahead and stated that it is a case of 60 million muslims. If you averaged this from statics of people from other religion ..then how stupid can you be to apply the same thesis of statistics to the Muslim Ummah.
If you repent not....then fear the hell fire. your friend in religion, rafi. (a servant of Allah the Most Powerful)
What is that confession?
Yikes! i admire your commitment to your faith in the face of such adversity. with followers who spew such bile and filth as these, no wonder islam carries such a heavy mantle of mistrust in the west.
My question is this; i hear rumors and stories of sex between men all the time in sex-segregated societies. who do these men think they're fooling? if it walks like a duck, and talks like a duck,.......well you know what i mean.
by the way, i am a gay male myself. although i gave up "man-made" religion a while back, i still consider myself a spiritual person. someday, brother, we'll have what we want. keep up the good fight!
Al salamo alaykom wa rahmat allah wa barakatoh, I have accidently
reached you website while browsing the web, and I hoped I never did. Didn't
you know hat homosexuality was one of the wirst sins in Islam. That means
that you are hypocratical. Prophet Loot's people were the first people
to be gay, and when they didn't listen to the prophet's advice (alayhe
al salam) god flooded them in their land. Can't you get it, HOMOSEXUALITY
IS HARAM, and I assure you that your followers are just people who are
following a fad that has been promoted by sinful westeners, and has been
passed, unfortunately, to our pure community by the likes of you. They
are just trying to corrupt out islamic communityand you are following them
blindly. Please stop corrupting the minds of many faithful innocents under
the label of "freedom of expression". And by the way, if you want to express
your self, why do you hide your last name. Please stop disgrasing the name
of islam by claiming you false faithfulness and by giving the wrong picture
about islam. please, no offence intended, but I was just showing that you
Sulayman X...I just read an article about your situation and endeavors.
Keep up the good work for the benefit of others and the whole world. Even
as a Catholic, i applaud your attempts to reach out to the outcasts
and help those in prison. i pray to the one God that we both worship in
faith and hope and love that He will assist both you and those you
reach. If he will not physically do something i know he will give
you courage and strenght for you jihad. Blessed be God forever and
those upon whom his favor rests. Amen...

Hi, I found your site through a link from Advocate.com.
I dated a muslim guy in college and continue to prefer "tinted" men. That early experience gave me significant insight into the struggle of gay muslims - especially those who come to the US for education and must return home.
Thanks for providing guys like Murat a place to interact.

HELLO SIR, I KNOW YOU ARE VERY BUSY TRYING TO SPREAD SATAN'S GOSPEL,
BUT WHAT I WANT TO KNOW FROM YOU IS HOW MUCH DO THEY PAY YOU TO SPOIL
THE NAME OF ISLAM LIKE THIS, IS IT A MILLION, BILLION, TRILLION,
MORE? HOW MUCH DOES ISLAM COST? I DESPARATELY NEED TO KNOW.
PLEASE SEND ME AN E-MAIL REPLY WITH THE ANSWER AND FURNISH ME WITH LINKS AND SITES OF YOUR KIND, SO THAT I MAY SPREAD THE WORD TO ALL MUSLIMS, WHO KNOWS, THEY MAY GIVE YOU MORE MONEY TO STOP DOING IT.IS IT PART OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER???
OH, BY THE WAY, MY NAME IS NOT JOHN, SO DONT THINK ITS A NON-MUSLIM, IT IS JUST FOR SECURITY REASONS BECAUSE I KNOW ORGANISATIONS LIKE YOURS ARE VERY POWERFULL.I DONT HAVE AS MUCH MONEY TO COUNTER-ACT YOU GUYS.
Regards, Worried muslim.
With Muslims like you, why should anyone have to pay to destroy Islam's image? You're doing a much better job than I ever could. - Sulayman X
From what I know of the Quran, Its clearly explained in the story
of prophet Lut that Homosexuality was against procreation, and it tore
apart the society, I hope and pray you find the path to the truth, Ameen,
As-salam Alaikum, dear brother My name is Fatima and I just wanted
to write to you to thank you for the good work that you are
doing. You truly are a mirror of Allah's love for all of us.
It is a breath of fresh air to be able to communicate openly and
honestly as a lesbian muslima. I just wish that people would leave the
judgement of me up to Allah. Surely Allah knows what is best. I really
believe that Islam is the most beautiful thing to happen to me. But we
must remember to maintain the Middle way so as to avoid extremism
I am sorry that you must receive so many hateful responses,
that is why I wanted to write to you, to help balance out your
Hello: I just read the article in the March 14, 2000
edition of The Advocate referring to your web site and what you were trying
to accomplish in setting it up. Since you seem to get a lot of hate mail,
I just wanted to send you a note of encouragement. Personally, I am an
athiest now but was raised Southern Baptist. Nonetheless, I am a libertarian
when it comes to religion and as long as other people respect my right
NOT to believe, I will respect their right to believe. In that vein, for
those people who have chosen the Islamic religion, I think your web site
offers a wonderful service and (though it might seem odd) I want to thank
you for it. Having been raised in a closed-minded, bigoted religion, I
can understand the lonliness, confusion, and frustration of knowing your
sexuality does not conform to the beliefs of those that organize your personal
religion. Remembering that lonliness, had the internet been available when
I was struggling with a reconcilation of my religion and budding sexuality
at 16, I would have wanted an equivalent web site devoted to Gay Southern
Baptists. So once again, great work and I'm sure you are touching
many lives. Don't let the hate mail even give you pause; don't let it destroy
Best Wishes! Sean Milligan Chicago, Illinois
Islam is strongly against muslims who believe and are homosexuals
U are sending a wrong message of Islam Instead u are making Islam in a
way where it benefits u as a person I find it wrong that u are doing it
so If this website does not change it point of view soon the Islamic Center
Of Long Island in New York will ask for Angelfire to do so and might
able sue for wrong information about Islam

Mr. X, I read the article written in this month's Advocate
about your web site. Congratulations for the recognition! Indeed,
your web site and efforts are paying off albeit gradually.
Thank you for the inspiration which has led to the founding
of our group: Gay Muslims of Atlanta. We will be looking into
Al-fatiha in more detail soon, I appreciate the reference.
Good Luck to you and yours! May God be with you always!

asaalmu alaikum...i saw your comments on the queer jihad website...i
am confused. the ruling regarding those who commit homosexuality
is clear. they are to be killed. Allah says on many occasions
in the quran, in the hadith qudsi and the Prophet (saaw) also
states that Allah will forgive those who repent simcerely to
Him. as for those who believe that what they are doing is not
a sin then how can they repent? these so called gay muslims, although
the this is a contradiction in terms, claim that homosexuality is not
haram, thus denying ayahs in the quran refering to the destruction
of the people of Lut. this makes them Kaafirs. we all know
the destination of the Kaafirs is the Hellfire as stated on
numerous occasions in the Quran.it is true we cannot judge individuals,
alive or dead, to say whether they are in the hellfre or the paradise,
since we do not know whether they ever received the true message
of the quran etc, and might have died ignorant and so will be
tested by Allah onthe day of judgemnt, but what we can say is that
basaed on this persons actions and statements he is a kaafir or he
died on kufr. as for this sulayman x charachter, it is clear....he is a
homosexual, he does not believe that this is a sin, and he
denies the destruction of the people of lut in the quran. add
these things up and what do you get....a big fat kaafir. i
have no doubt in my mind that he has simply been employed to makle
this site to confuse and mislead innocent young people who are thinking
about becoming muslim or have very little knowledge about islam.
i see that youy are a muslim and i would advise tyou to stay away from such people. was salam.
listen who ever you are wake up and smell the shit when you stick your dick in his ass you sick bastard you stinky motherfucker you worthless piece of shit that gets on your dick from buttfucking you stupid cocksucker fuck you you dumbmotherfucker you like licking your boyfriends ass ha you stupid fuck why dont you kill yourself it might do you some good because if i ever see you i will kill you if you dont change i will put you on my hit list with the other kafirs you are in need of guidance how dare you put some stupid site like this on the net
Sounds like you've been gay porn, buddy. Now why would you being
doing that? - Sulayman X
I read your confession , it was like someone was telling me what
happened in my life since I was born , every detail that you described
was a story from my life. I too tryied to deny who I was to
myself and others including the ones I love the most , my family.and
even though I accepted who I am I still hide it from anyone
around me . I thought it was my fault that I was gay ,I wanted
to change so desperitly, looked for ways to do it , but no matter
how hard I tried, no matter how far I went to seek for the solution
at the end I was empty handed. There was only one thing that
kept me going , my Love for ALLAH. I feel relaxed when I pray
to him, free in a sense, knowing that I am putting my head
down in front of him , him who created me , him who mentions that
He is Merceful and forgiving before every Surah every Ayet in
Quran. I came to realize that I did not have to satisfy those people
who called themselves Muslims but yet had no idea what ISLAM was
about or what Porephet MUHAMMAD (S.A.S) preached for 40 years.
To me the main idea behind Islam is to Love, to love yourself
so that yuo can love others, to believe in yourself so that
you can believe in others.
as Mevlana- Cellalettin -i Rumi once said
COME NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE
EVEN IF YOU ARE MURDERER OR A SINNER
THE DOOR IS THERE
COME TO BE FORGIVEN BY ALLAH.
As I said I came to realize that I am going to be judged when the Mahkame-i Kubra ( the judgement day ) comes by ALLAH , and not by anyone else, so my duty is to satisfy him , and though I know what I am doing is wrong I do not believe that ALLAH will put me in hell and I never believed that MUHAMMAD (S.A.S) said gay people should be killed ,because if he did it would be agains everything that Quran teaches , everything that Muhammad himself tought for his entire life.
he loved people ,no matter what they did to him , I am sure those Muslims who believe we are not muslims are fimiliar with the story when MUHAMMAD (s.A.S) went to a little twon to preach ALLAH young children and thier parents threw rock at him and most of them hit MUHAMMAD . He was bleding , ALLAH right away sent CEBRAIL and the angel asked Muhammad " if you want we can destroy the entire town right now , and kill everyone in it" MUHAMMAD(S.A.S) said NO ,even only one of them see the path that takes them to ALLAH one day I will be happy and satisfied, I do not believe the same person would order all the gays to be killed.
I do my best to satisfy ALLAH I have never not once missed fasting since I was 5 , I pray 5 times a day , attend all the Friday prayings, I read the HOLLY QURAN everyday , hoping it will take me even closer lever with ALLAH. I do not lie I do not steal, never did anything that I know is Haram, millions accept the path of ISLAM ,because it talks about equality and forgivness.
I know I make mistakes in my life ,but I know that everybody else does to ,that is what makes u human, but I also know that ,ALLAH , who I believe in so much and who I love more than my own-self life, will judge me fairly for all of my life not just for what I did in bed with someone else.
I know I do my best to be a good Muslim,and I know that ALLAH sees me trying so hard ,I found peace in ALLAH , in Quran , In praying and I am NOT going to let anyone , no one take that away from me .
as you said , then can deny me to their little groups but NO ONE can deny me the right to be me ,the right to be Muslim ,the right to love ALLAH AND HIS PROPHET MUHAMMAD (S.A.S) .
please write back if you can and you can post this of any help
I searched for years for him
tried every path ,every way
I finally found what I was missing
and I say ALHAMDUALLILAH
with every breath and everyday
do not be afraid , be yourself
thus, it is the only way to define oneself
MAY ALLAH FORGIVE ME ,THUS I FORGAVE OTHERS, AND MAY ALLAH FORGIVE YOU ,THUS YOU FORGAVE ME
May ALLAH forgive me and all the other who believe in him ,who love him and respect him.
I am an american born Muslim , and on top of that I live in NYC so I have seen and heard almost everything there is to see and hear. I am not really comming from a religous family my mother prays 5 times a day fasts 30 days a year but my father,even though if you ask him he is one of the greates Muslims to live on the face of the earth , does not do any of that , he just talks. I knew back when I was around 17 that , there was something inside me a feeling , an urge, which did not feel quite right , I was different in some sense that I did not know at the time, then later on I realized that I was bisexual. I was extremly upset with my self , did not know what to do , at times I even thought I was crazy .
Then I started to expore more, look around , seek for answers for my questions and during the process of finding out who I was, I met a lot of people just like me.
I could not pray to ALLAH because I was afraid and most importantly shamed of myself to be in front of him to get close to him , but then I started school and I decided to take a course a garduate level course called "ISLAM" . I wanted to discover more about what I was so afraid of , something out there that I cant see yet I am more afraid of him then anything else in my life including my family.
Finally ,when I finished the course , I noticed something , I learned to love ALLAH not to be afraid of him , I learned to trust him and believe in him . I took many other religoing classes actually it is my major now , to me what made ISLAM different was that ALLAH was trying to remind us how forgiving he is , because that is how every Surah started in QURAN . More than 600 hundred times ALLAH reminded us that HE is forgiving.
And for the first time , Today I was reading some of the comments , and I noticed they all have one thing in commen , they all believe that we are trying to justify what we are doing, well I do not think that is the case. We know what we are doing is wrong and we realize that it is indeed forbidden in Quran , but we believe in ALLAH at least I do and I know that one day he will show me the true path.
all those people who wrote all those mean comments , do you really think that you understand ISLAM, do you consider yourselves as being true Muslims, did you know that not praying 5 times a day is one of the biggest sins ? do you pray 5 times a day ? guess what I do , do you go to Friday Prayers every week ?, guess what , I miss my school to go to Friday prayings, I have never tasted any kind of alcohol in my life, have never stolen anything from anyone, I have been fasting since I was 5 years old, I read QURAN everyday at least for an hour , I would die for ALLAH without even thinking, I get up at 3 in the morning to pray , to seek his forgivness , now do you do all that , and even if you do or not who are you to tell me that I am not as much Muslim as you are , what makes you more Muslim than me ,I do everything that my religoing requires from me but I made one mistake ,now you are telling me that because of how I feel Allah , who says " I AM THE THE MOST FORGIVING AND MERCEFUL" will put me in hell forever. If you do I hate to break the news to you but you have alot of reading to do and a lot of understanding . No human can decide who is Muslim and who is not , no human can decide who will go to hell and who will go to heaven and if you thnk you can , sorry but you are in more trouble than anyone else.
Our religion is the religion of Love and forgivness, no race ,no gender matters we are all equal in front of ALLAH. I know that I love ALLAH , you are telling me I am wrong ?
and one more thing as I was reading the commnets one think really suprised me here it is exact quote from it :

HE WHO ALLAH GUIDES, NO ONE CAN MIS-GUIDE,AND HE WHO ALLAH MIS-GUIDES NO ONE CAN GUIDE.
Ithink this is very intersting and quite amuzing considering that the person who wrote this e mail is arguing that Gay Muslims should not blame ALLAH for what they are and how they feel ,then he turns around and says that If ALLAH is mis-guiding you , no matter what you do , how hard you try ,there is nothing you or anyone else can do to change that because ALLAH has all the power so no matter how hard you try to correct yourself as long as ALLAH wants to mis-guide you ,you are kind of screwed. Can anyone tell me what kind of a logic is that please, and one more thing I am not blaming ALLAH for what I am becaise I believe in free-will , but I sure would hope that people think little bit more and read wht they write.
I admit I am wrong but I also claim that I love ALLAH and I consider myself a MUSLIM and in reality it is not you who can turn me down or tell me I am not , It is not you who can decide if I am going to hell or heaven ,it is ALLAH, and guess what I love him and trust him and respcet him as much as you do if not more.
I thank to ALLAH who created the earth and everything in it and I pray everyday for me , my family and everyone who believes in him , and hope that we will be forgiven ,yet that is the only hope WE ALL have
go kill yourself motherfucker
dear muslim wannabes
please justify homosexuality based upon islamic text such as sahih al bukharee and qu'ran i as a muslim do not understand the mentality of your arguement i am a revert and have left my jahiliyah based upon text and implementation of this knowledge and would not try to justify sinning according to my nafs fear allah and do not die except as muslims forgive me for not salaaming you as i doubt you remain in the folds of islam

To dear muslims who profess " There is no god but Allah and Muhammed
(SAW) is his messenger." It is a shame to see how muslims can declare to
believe in his messenger and allah but yet disregard what allah and his
rasool say regarding the disgusting practices that you homosexuals
are so proud off!! Allah is the creator and therfore he knows us
best and our limitations- but dispite this practice being haram it
is clear that you have manipulated the quran to your own desires
ie. make haram to be halal and halal to be haram... i urge you to go back
to the quran and sunnah and think about the implications and consequences
of your actions in this life aswell as the aqerah!!!
Remember allah is most forgiving..........
