 Sulayman,
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.

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.

 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.
zab

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......

Subject: HOMOSEXUALITY IS A MAJOR SIN
To: sulaymanx@yahoo.com

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  17:32)
<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

 As-Salaam walaykum
 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.

 Brother, neither you or me (or any human being) has the right to decide  who  will be saved or condemned. That right belongs exclusively to Allah.
Similarly, we have no right to freely condemn others as "kfr": Who is  a  "good enough" Muslim to enter Jannah is a judgment only Allah can make.  We  have limited knowledge - limited wisdom. Allah in contrast is Al-Alim,  As-Sami and Al-Basir: There is nothing Allah does not know, hear or  see! I  do not condemn  Suliman X as "kfr." Nor do I condemn fellow Muslims who may not agree  with  the  majority view or my view as to who were the rightful caliphs.
As for error - and Allah's power to forgive error - I am absolutely  certain  that many  persons who adhere to religions that advocate Shirk - a far greater sin  in  Islam  than any scholar has ever claimed homosexuality to be - will find their  way  into  Jannah. I am certain that Allah as Al-Ghafur will find that even many  Xtians  did  not really commit shirk because they worshipped only Allah and, in  fact,  ignored all the lies about "Trinity" their churches wer teaching them.
It is our job as Muslims to combat Shirk above all. All other sins and  human  failings are minor in comparison. Differences in opinion among Muslims are  gneerally  of  little consequence if we keep this higher purpose in mind. In  combatting  shirk we must carry our mission to all corners of the world, all nations, and  even  persons who have committed all manner of past sin. People do not have to be  "worthy"  to  be Muslims. Indeed, if by worthiness, the standard is complete lack of  sin,  the  prophets themselves (peace be unto them) would have failed to be  Muslims.  The standard is recognition of the ONENESS and UNIQUENESS of Allah.  Even a man or woman on Death Row (who was actually guilty) could become a  Muslim. This being said, I don't see how homosexuality could exclude a person  from  being a Muslim. We do not disqualify heterosexuals from being considered  Muslim  because they have committed fornication or adultery. So I see  something of a double standard in much of the criticism heaped on Suliman X and the  gay  muslims. I think this double standard has to be acknowledged.
Sincerely, Haleem

 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)

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.

 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 your outreach.
Best Wishes!   Sean Milligan Chicago, Illinois

 Akhi, the essence of Islam is the Unqualified Will of Allah
Allah cannot be put in a box.
As I stated, and the Quran states, Allah will forgive who he wants and  condemn  who he wants.
None of us, including the Prophet (pbuh) are perfect. For to be perfect  to be  without  any imperfection or sin would be to be ALLAH!
It is not my job to decide who will be condemned or who will be saved -  that  is  Allah's alone.
I have no doubt that in Jannah we wil be greeted by persons who have  committed numerous sins at some time in their lives - including adultery, murder,  theft, etc.  Allah has to power if Allah so wills to forgive any sin (even shirk, if  it is  repented for).
This being the case I will not rush in a course of conedmnation. That  course  is the course of Xtianity - a religion that is based on the premise that  Allah's  power is qualified and that Allah's power to forgive and condemn is limited  by some  set  formula (like a mathematical equation), and dependent on facts and  factors  apart from Allah (such as the alleged sacrifice of an alleged Son of Allah).
Ma-salaam, Haleem

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.

 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
JUST COME
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
love 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

 ASSALAMU ALEYKUM
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 :
written by AH9209 from the universty of LONDON
he says
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

 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
m. arshad unconfused slave of allah

 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..........
