The most disturbing aspect of these modern times is not that you
claim to be a 'gay Muslim', which obviously is a contradiction of
terms, but that secularism has taken religion by the horns and is creating
a whole new standard of morality. God has been shifted from His divine,
independent authority to one that is subservient to human intuition and
a figure that, despite whatever violations man may committ against
His ordained laws, never does get angry. God is always all-forgiving
and flexible to no end. He has been shaped into a mere father figure
who compassionately looks down upon us and simply ignores our transgressions.
As a matter of fact, God is now above the petty work of punishing human
beings; He has resolved to utter mercy regardless of what we may
do. In essence, SIN is now not an aberration but a weakness which must
be compassionately understood and never forcibly stopped. Secularists
the world over have achieved this remarkable transformation of religion
by first outruling the possibility of God's very existence, then
allowing the 'weak, ignorant, unconfident' rest of us to worship
the Almighty 'privately', that is: without disrupting their wayward
lifestyles. I'm not shocked that some Muslims actually are trying to
soften up to you. Some of us have been so interminably brain washed by
western secularism that we now have adopted it as our own agenda. Don't
look now, but in a matter of 20 or so more years there'll be plenty
more Muslims mailing you sympathy letters, mincing Quran's strong anti-homosexuality
injunctions into something more palatable.
After all, these Muslims don't want to be looked upon (heaven forbid) as being intolerant or ignorant, even if that costs them their very Iman (faith). People like you will continue their 'struggles' only until Muslims regain their faith and discard secularism in its entirety. Islam, which is 'Allah's religion' as described in Surah Al-e Imran, can't be bottled up and examined by the gaurdians of secularism as to whether it fits into their framework of religion. Islam is all-abounding, all-encompassing and self-evident, meaning that when it states a law it states that law with absolute legal, rational and natural authority. A fact stated in Quran and/or Saheeh Hadith is a fact that cannot be proven wrong by a million Einsteins put together.
Allah admonishes homosexuality and warns its practitioners of Hell fire. Why in God's name are you, then, trying to justify your 'queerness' by attaching it to Islam? Honestly, I really don't care how underprivileged and abused you feel Sulayman, for my loyalty is with Allah. Drowning in the Nile, Pharoah must have felt pretty underprivileged too, you know, but the way Allah punishes wrongdoers is not something I dare question even for an instant. I would just ask those Muslims sympathizing with you to please stop acting like Islamic legal experts (it's quite sickening) and go re-orient themselves with Salat, which neither one can probably recall ever praying. Islam isn't Christianity people! Stop toying around with it and for God's sake stop apologizing on Allah's behalf!
May Allah save us all (Ameen)
It's funny that you carry the name of a slave and one of the first
converts to Islam. You would probably have belly-ached that outlawing slavery
was fiddling with Islam and should be rejected by 'true Muslims'. If you
don't see the point, well, that's the point. - Sulayman X
I KNOW YOU HAVE NOT READ THE QU'RAN BECAUSE THE QU'RAN ORDERS US IN MANY MANY MANY VERSES TO RESTRAIN FROM BEING PERVERTED FAGGOTS. I HOPE ALLAH PUNISHES YOU CORRECTLY. IF I COULD I'D CUT YOUR HEAD OFF. THERE IS NO POSSIBLE WAY TO BE A GAY MUSLIM. BEING PERVERTED AND SICK GOES AGAINST THE WORD OF ALLAH. FUCK YOU.
Not once in the Qur'an does it order us to 'restrain from being perverted
faggots'. What book are you reading? - Sulayman X
Just a few words to encourage you and express my gratitude that
you and other gay people within the Muslim community are willing to speak
There is a lot of hate expressed, but remember that although these people think they are aiming it at you, they are really only able to aim it at their own perception, their own belief of who you are. We know who we are, we know we did not choose a desire. No matter what someone believes, we are all trying to live the best we can. This is not about pleasing cultural beliefs, it's strictly between us and our God.
When I see a person threaten someone with eternal torture in the name of God the Merciful and Compassionate, it makes me wonder if they hear themselves at all.
go to hell
if ure queer ---------------- your not muslim. why??? cos theres
a contradiction. Cos ALLAH did not create Adam and Steve. He created Adam
and Eve. Another thing said by the prophet is that whover deviates from
my sunnah is not part of my ummah. The prophet never had sex with men nor
did he ever marry one. The shariah states that a homosexual is thrown off
the highest mountain. Look at what you are doing wrong and seek ALLAH's
forgiveness as Allah is strict in punishment. Please reply to me at email@example.com
Thank you for your uplifting web page! I'm encouraged to see a web site devoted to helping gay Muslims. As a gay Christian, I too, know the sting and pain of rejection (not to mention the gross mis-interpretation of Holy Scripture). Jesus, a man infused with the spirit of God, was a champion of the poor and oppressed. He taught us that God was love and that we should be like God and love others as God loves us. This simple, but profound message seems lost on many people today....if they would only read with clear eyes and a loving heart they would see what the Gospel says and what the Holy Quran says. Both the Prophet Mohammed and Jesus would decry all forms of discrimination that we have to endure.
All of God's prophet's, Zoroaster, Moses, Buddha, Lao Tzu, Jesus, and Mohammed (as well as un-named others), have always taught us that God is love. How dare we defy that truth.
Keep up the good work and may the peace and love of God guide you in your life! :-)
Dear Brother Sulayman,
After reading the Koran I do not believe that hoosexuality is a sin. In fact, I am more of the opinion that heterosexuals prone to have sex with the same sex are sinners. I am also prone to believe that what is deemed as homosexuality in the Koran more often refers to sexual acts in public. The Koran is realy very liberal. Also we must remember that the people of Sodom were practicing sex with animals, and this act has mistakenly been considered as homosexuality.
Thank you for allowing me to share these thoughts with you.
assalaam u alaikum
my name is ebrahim and i am a 21yr old student in south africa. i came across ur web page by accident and i must say that i am amazed. i think that what u r doing should be commended and not slammed , u r truly an example of what atrue muslim should be....holding on yo ur faith in the face of adversity. i read ur confessions was astounded....if only more people could feel that way about our beautiful religion. i discovered that i was gay when i was about 11 or 12 and shocking though it is ,i never had a problem with it ....never wanted to kill myself or leave my religion....i am a hafez by the way. my parents don't know about my double life and unfortunately i don't intend telling them anytime soon coz it would them too much. fortunately i have quite a few gay friends who help me along. we were born this way....nothing influenced us and nobody forced us to change into what we are....and nothing can change us either even if we do so long to change in order to be accepted.....thats the way life goes....right?
anyway i hope to hear from u if u have the time. assalaam u alaikum ebrahim
It is unbelievable what you are doing. I don't want to put the
curse on you, because Allah (Yahdi meen Yacha) Guides Whoever
He Pleases. There is a verse in Holy Qu'ran: Chapter 2 (Baqara)
verse 42; And confound not truth with falsehood nor hide the
truth, knowingly. Also here are some verses which denounce
homosesuality. Chapter 26 Verses160-175 And surely thy Lord- He is Mighty,
the Merciful. The people of Lot rejected the Messengers, When their brother
Lot said to them " will you not become righteous? Surely, I am unto you
a Messenger, faithful to my trust. So fear Allah and obey me. And I ask
of you no reward for it. My reward is only with the Lord of the
worlds. Do you of all peoples, approach males, And leave your wives whom
your Lord has created for you? Nay you are a people who transgress.
They said " If thou desist not O Lot, thou wilt surely be one of
banished ones. He said certainly I hate your practice. My Lord save
me and my family from what they do. So We saved him and his family from
what they do. Save an old woman among those who stayed behind. Then
We destroyed the others. And We rained upon them a rain; and evil was the
rain of those who were warned. In that verily there is a Sign, but
most of these would not believed. And surely thy Lord- He is the Mighty,
Dear follow human beings I can not say more than what Allah Said in the Holy Qu'ran regarding your behavior. You must repent before is too late, it will be good for you alone. Allah is the Forgiver return to Him, best for you. I strongly believe this is another tactic to infiltrate into Muslim Ummah to destroy Islam, please do not forget what's happen to the people before us when they tried these tactics, they lost and you will be next. I pray strongly that Allah Guides you to the right path. Ameen Peace be with you all. Muslim slogan " Hatred for none and love for all. Mohamed
if you are a queer be one but do not call yourself a muslim as
islam prohibits homsexual relationships of any form.revert to people
of lot in the quran and why they were punished for wat sin.who
started homosexuality+ why?
You gay kafirs:
There is no place for gays in Islam!!! Satan is trying to destroy Islam. We will never let these gays destroy Islam.
We Muslims should from now on be intelligent enough to first ask the people who want to convert to Islam if they are gay or do other nasty things.
I am very angry to hear that these people came to a Mosque a home of Allah, to become a Muslim. These gay people should be kicked out of any Muslim community meeting center.
You people are not Muslim !! you people should stay chrisitian or what ever you were before. Don 't try to corrupt our Beautiful religion or Allah will destroy you . We will also destroy you people.
May you gays go to hell !!!
Dear Brother Sulayman, Assalamu Aleikum, I was told about your
site by a brother after todays Juma'a prayers. I read the earlier part
of your site but have not finished the entire page. I was born Muslim (wal
Hamdulillah) and have been previlaged to be exposed to different ways of
thinking, cultures, lifestyles, struggles, etc. I exterted a great deal
of my life striving to learn Islam and its vast areas of knowledge.
I also had extensive dialogue and some times fruitful cooperation in specific
issues with "gay, lesbian and bisexual" community.
As a Muslim I can not judge your faith or intentions since Allah is the only one who does. Also as a Muslim I have to be your claim as a Muslim of being a Muslim. I can very strongly relate to your background and what you had to endure in your childhood, and growing up. I would also like to advise you that even after being a Muslim, myself, who posses a number of high degrees and devoted a great deal of his life to study Islam as Allah's chosen way of life that provides the ultimate and best solutions for all creation, I am still discovering the jewels of the bounty of Allah. Brother, Islam is a complete way of life that non Muslims are free accept or reject. Islam is the way of life that is ordained by Allah in a complete manner, Allah that stated that we can belong to Islam and be a Muslim only if we willingly and gladly accept the commands of Allah. We all have our temptations and deisres. Many of us experience trends and tenedncies drievn by different reasons. However, we can never charactarize that our behaviour all lifestyle is representative to the faith we claim that we belong to particualrly when our behaviour and lifestyle is both clearly and equivically contradictory to the code, mandate, and teachings of the faith.
Brother Sulayman, Allah states very clearly that the ultimate and only reference in life in general, and for Muslim in particular is what Allah revealed to Prophat Muhammad (peace be upon Him), and the tradition Prophet Muhammad's (sunnah). Unlike all other "religions" Islam is blessed with the aboslute preservation of the authenticity of its sources. Islam's unequivocal rejection to homosexuality is unambiguous. While I understand your struggle as you calim it to be a struggle with one's self, but the term used to describe as Jihad is clearly inappropriate and misleading for numerous reasons. I do pray to Allah for guidance for you and for all of us. I would like just to remind you that it is only a matter of short days before we have our actions sealed for good and are prepared to stand in front of Allah to answer for every little deed we committed. Just think, brother, whether you can afford to gamble should what you are doing (which is clearly as I said) is against Allah and what his almighty commanded. I can understand that you admire Islam and may be are fascinated with Islam like many of us.
The beauty of islam that it is Allah's way and not our way. It is your choice to accept Islam or not, but it definitely is not your choice or any of us choice to claim that Islam suits for our desires temptations or lifestyle. I pray for your guidance and your best in life and hereafter, and may Allah accept our intention.
Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Malik and my associates
name is Khalid. Firstly i would like to say that we do not judge
other people, especially if we haven't met them, but you do not classify
as a person so here is what we have to say about you and the filth
you represent. How dare you use the name of Allah and all that is
righteous in Islam to promote that which is wrong. Homosexuality
is forbidden in Islam so you cannot be practising it. You disgust me and
my friends for you are the most vile and loathsome of individuals.
I see you as nothing more than a dirty transgressor who will be soon in
his grave where he shall meet the wrath of Allah. As of this moment
you are a contract and the bounty on your head is substantial.
All the god fearing and true muslims in our group in Luton have contributed generously.
Your a dead man and will die a very agonising and excruciating death. I spit on you and the filth you project.
Your dead you KAFFIR!!!!!
Pardon me while I go shake in my shoes. - Sulayman X
i wont even say aaslamualaikum because u r a kafr (non believer)...
I see that u have accepted the American way of life which includes freedom to be animals!!!!
I must remind u that it is these kafir societies which are murdering muslims all around the globe.... Please wake up !!!! homosexuality is forbidden in Islam and all moral societies !!!!!!!!!!!!
Do u follow the word of Allah......If u claim to ...then leave this state of kufr and embrace islam as it has been preserved from generaton to generation..
(Quran 027.055) YUSUFALI: Would ye really approach men in your lusts rather than women? Nay, ye are a people (grossly) ignorant! PICKTHAL: Must ye needs lust after men instead of women? Nay, but ye are folk who act senselessly. SHAKIR: What! do you indeed approach men lustfully rather than women? Nay, you are a people who act ignorantly.
(Quran)026.165 YUSUFALI: "Of all the creatures in the world, will ye approach males, PICKTHAL: What! Of all creatures do ye come unto the males, SHAKIR: What! do you come to the males from among the creatures
(Quran) 026.166 YUSUFALI: "And leave those whom Allah has created for you to be your mates? Nay, ye are a people transgressing (all limits)!" PICKTHAL: And leave the wives your Lord created for you? Nay, but ye are froward folk. SHAKIR: And leave what your Lord has created for you of your wives? Nay, you are a people exceeding limits.
(Quran 029.028) YUSUFALI: And (remember) Lut: behold, he said to his people: "Ye do commit lewdness, such as no people in Creation (ever) committed before you. PICKTHAL: And Lot! (Remember) when he said unto his folk: Lo! ye commit lewdness such as no creature did before you. SHAKIR: And (We sent) Lut when he said to his people: Most surely you are guilty of an indecency which none of the nations has ever done before you;
(Quran 029.029) YUSUFALI: "Do ye indeed approach men, and cut off the highway?- and practise wickedness (even) in your councils?" But his people gave no answer but this: they said: "Bring us the Wrath of Allah if thou tellest the truth." PICKTHAL: For come ye not in unto males, and cut ye not the road (for travellers), and commit ye not abomination in your meetings? But the answer of his folk was only that they said: Bring Allah's doom upon us if thou art a truthteller! SHAKIR: What! do you come to the males and commit robbery on the highway, and you commit evil deeds in your assemblies? But nothing was the answer of his people except that they said: Bring on us Allah's punishment, if you are one of the truthful
The words of the Quran are the words of Allah... The above are Ayat (verse) from the Quran translated by three most repected muslim of their time...
It clearly says that homoesexuality is forbidden in islam and that the punishment is hell.
So to all the confuse queers... u can either be a muslim or gay person... but not both.....!!!!!
Assalam-O-Alaikum! First of all i want everyone to read my letter.Well
you think that homosexuality should be given a boost or in other words
what i mean to say is that gay/les should find partners.but can i ask why??I
think as far as my knowledge is concerned untill now no scientist has proved
the gene for homosexuality and even if they get even 1 gene they say that
they can't prove it because it is only one.So my question here is that
why are you so firm in this believe that homosexuals exist. Please wait
for the true results and then prove your point,but i think all this homosexuality
stuff is wrong it doesn't exist. All muslims out there i need your help
because i am writing from Pakistan where this issue is not common but nowadays
it is no doubt getting common.I need your help in finding more facts that
being a homosexual is not TRUE.I want to give awareness to all the mistaken
ones. You can mail me on: firstname.lastname@example.org So come and join me. I hope
you will help. Regards, Hina Khan. P.S please only interested individuals
If you were truly Muslim, and if you respect this magnificent faith, your heart should have led you to sincere repentance. The first step is to recognize this major sin or kabeerah you committed, which you realize it is by the overwhelming mail you received. Then, you should blame yourself for having committed it, which you did not. Then, you should not return to committing it, which you insist you will not. What is really shocking is that you gave yourself the right to still think you have submitted (Islam=total surrender to Allah and His injunctions to gain His pleasure) and make-belief you still practice this deen (way of life). My advice to you is to take this offensive and disgusting website off the internet. You realize you are hurting the sensibilities of a billion Muslims in this world!! Islam is quite clear, quite consistent on chastity, purity, and moral cleanliness. Tolerance is not of clear sins recognized as sins and continue to be committed by the sinner regardless of Allah's Will.
TOO BAD I CAME ACROSS THIS WEBSITE. TOO BAD YOU FELL INTO THE LOBBY OF THE PERVERSE MINORITY DRUMMING UP THEIR PROPAGANDA, WHICH FOLLOWS A VERY ELABORATE POLITICAL AGENDA TO SOUND LIKE MANY, BUT THEY ARE A REJECTED FEW. TOO BAD THAT YOU BECAME A LOBBYIST FOR THIS PERVERSE CULTURE, KNOWINGLY?! IF NOT, THEN GET IT OFF INTERNET AND REPENT. GET RID OF IT AND DO NOT BECOME AN AGENT TO DRAG OTHERS WITH YOU TO THE DOORS OF HELL. IF YOU LOVE ALLAH AND RESPECT ISLAM, REFORM AND BECOME A TRUE, NORMAL MUSLIM TO FEEL THE LOVE AND MERCY OF ALLAH. IF YOU THINK YOU BELIEVE, YOU NEED TO STRENGTHEN THIS BELIEF BY TRUE PRACTICE AND REFORM TO PLEASE ONLY HIM WHO CREATED AND LOVED YOU AND BROUGHT YOU TO HIM. GO BACK TO THE MOST MERCIFUL AND REPENT. PRAY AT NIGHT WITH BURNING TEARS AND REPENT. PROSTRATE TO HIM BEFORE DAWN AND ASK HIS HELP. ASK FOR THE BLISS AND PEACE OF PARADISE AND REPENT. DID YOU EVEN TRY ASKING HIM TO HELP YOU? FINALLY, THERE IS ONLY ONE CHOICE AND NO OTHER...MARRIAGE BETWEEN MAN AND WOMAN IS THE ONLY FORM ALLAH ACCEPTS. THIS IS A SYSTEM THAT IS TIGHT AND CLEAN FOR THE LOVE OF CHILDREN, FOR RAISING THEM RIGHT,SO THEY DO NOT BECOME LOST, HURT, CONFUSED AND DESTROYED AS YOU CLAIM YOUR PAST BEFORE FINDING THE ROUTE TO SUBMISSION TO YOUR CREATOR WAS AND CONTINUES TO BE BECAUSE OF YOUR PARENT'S INABILITY TO SHOULDER FULL RESPONSIBILITY ON EARTH AND DO THEIR JOB OF GUIDING AND HELPING. YOU KNOW, EVEN ANIMALS FOLLOW ALLAH'S LAW. THIS PERVERSE FORM IS NOT FOUND IN THE ANIMAL REALM BECAUSE ALLAH CREATED THESE ANIMALS WITH A PURE INSTINCT (FITRAH SALEEMAH). ALL OF THEM PRAY AND MAKE SUPPLICATION TO HIM AND THEY KNOW IT BUT WE DO NOT KNOW IT. BUT THE ALMIGHTY, THE POWERFUL SAID IT AND WE MUSLIMS BELIEVE IT. WHAT IS YOUR ROLE ON THIS EARTH. YOU SPREAD ALLAH'S WORD ON EARTH AND FIGHT TO MAKE HIS WORD REIGN SOVEREIGN. YOU CANNOT BE IN HIS WONDERFUL REALM AND DENY THIS BLESSING.
THIS IS FROM MY HEART TO YOUR HEART. MAKE ALLAH CONSUME YOUR HEART AND HE WILL GUIDE YOU. IT IS YOUR SPIRIT THAT WILL JOIN HIM. YOU NEED TO BE SINCERE. THAT IS TO BE MUSLIM. YOU CANNOT CLAIM SUBMISSION AND NOT TAKE THESE SIMPLE AND EASY STEPS TOWARDS HIM WHO LOVES YOU AND SHOWS YOU HOW TO FIND HIM. KEEP READING THE QUR'AN AS MUSLIMS READ IT AND DO NOT TRY TO IMPOSE PERSONAL, JUSTIFYING AND TWISTED INTERPRETATIONS...THIS IS WHAT THE DEVIL ORDERS THE MISGUIDED TO DO...AND WE MUSLIMS RESENT THAT ALLAH'S WORDS ARE BEING PUT IN THIS BASE CONTEXT. THE ALMIGHTY, THE COMPASSIONATE THE MOST HIGH AND EXALTED WILL NOT HAVE IT AND WILL NOT ALLOW US TO HAVE YOU HAVE IT. THERE IS NOTHING CONFUSING ABOUT THAT. MUSLIMS LOVE ALLAH THE WAY HE CLEARLY EXPLAINS HIMSELF. SO GO FIND HIM SULAYMAN. ONE MORE THING. HE IS MUHAMMAD, PEACE AND BLESSINGS BE UPON HIM. WE ARE ORDERED TO CALL HIM WITH RESPECT AND PRAY FOR HIM EVERY TIME HIS NAME IS MENTIONED, NOT JUST CALL HIM BY HIS NAME ASI IF HE IS A GUY ON OUR STREET. OK? TRULY, THE PROPHET (SALLA ALLAHU 'ALAIHI WASALLAM) TAUGHT US HOW TO PRACTICE THIS PEACEFUL AND TOLERANT FAITH. NO IFS OR BUTS ABOUT PERVERSION IN HIS SEERAH AND SUNNAH. THAT IS CLEAR. YOU ALSO NEED TO BE ALWAYS ASKING SCHOLARS TO GUIDE YOU IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS. DID YOU KNOW THAT WHOEVER MAKES AN UNJUSTIFIED CLAIM ABOUT ISLAM IS IN HELLFIRE. YOU FOLLOW FIXED PRINCIPLES. IMAGINE IF EVERYONE'S DESIRES MAKE-UP NEW IDEAS...PEOPLE WILL BE FOLLOWING THEMSELVES NOT ALLAH AND THE PROPHET. I PRAY FOR YOU GUIDANCE SULAYMAN. I ADVISE EVERYONE TO GUIDE YOU TO REPENTANCE.
If you think your sensibilities are hurt by this web site, just imagine
how mine are hurt by homophobia like your's. - Sulayman X
Dear Sulayman, I enjoyed your excellent essay for Advocate.
It ought to be of great interest to Christians and Jews who face
the same issues in their dealings with religious establishments.
And just think, to have such a shallow, trendy magazine as Advocate to
publish it also quite another accomplishment in itself. Not
to detract one whit from the serious importance of your work, the
refutation approach has never much interested me personally. To me,
this avenue represents reproachment and detente with the moral and
theological equivalent of a crumbling Soviet regieme--whether the establishment
in question is Muslim, Jewish, or Christian. As gay people, our own philosophical
history is vast and comparatively unexplored, and it's time to start
afresh to reclaim all the treasures we've abandoned in our desperate
attempt to conform. You'll find more thoughts on this in the following
links. I hope they may prove of some interest to you or your colleagues.
Again, thanks very much for a brilliantly composed piece--which I
sincerely hope finds a wide readership.
Ciao, Mitch Gould
Please don't post my email address.
I wonder why people have to so actively hate other people because of their lifestyle - especially when it DOESN'T AFFECT THEM. If you believe in God or Allah... then surely you understand that it is His job to decide to punish or condemn. That is not the job for any human. To all who are trying to judge this website or its creators... Spewing forth such hate can only bring you negativity. You are not enlightened and you will never be as long as you preach hatred. Concentrate on your own life. Live the life that you think is right and stop worrying about how others are living theirs.
I wish everyone happiness and personal enlightenment.
i feel sorry for you , for you know the truth and ALLAH has shown
you the light and you still rebel!!! sure ALLAHS curse is on those
who acce pt part of ALLAHS law and disregard the other just for self
benifit. eve ry human is tested by ALLAH through there lives. they
are tested through money, death of loved ones, property, health
, and many other things. a nd you are aalso being tested and you
have to pass it. by reffering to q uran and sunna acting accordingly.
clearly this gay thing is forbide n in quran and sunna so why do
you rebell? it is clear your test is hard so do jihad with
you inner feelings and channel your instincts through the prescribed
manner. gay is a break up society it harms society just like
intoxicants is. the short term pleasure is too small for the long
term havoc they cause. islams focus on soceity is very strong because a
strong society is a strong nation and family life is basis of society.
it is very clear you are not passing your test ,be st rong do jihad
and over come your weakness and be closer to god by strugl ing. this
life is short you will die soon!!! so repent and pass your tes t.
this life is short so be wise , the truth is with you just open yo
ur eyes. do not bring the wrath of allah on your self by leadi ng
your self asstray and others. get over your weakness and show others
hope and truth,, not lies and hell fire . be hope for other lost people
in the proper manner not by leading them asstray. remembe death is
almos t here for you so sort your self out before the angel of death grips
you r soul and ripsit out for judgement!!! you truly are lost what a shame
Dear Sulayman I am a muslim gay living in Spain ( I am from the
middle east) for the past 20 years. I was having a chat in
the muslim room in www.gay.com website with a muslim brother,
who told me about the gay muslim website....and I could not
believe it. I live a very discreet live here, as the place is a small
place and I know many straight people of my own nationality. I am just
writing to congratulate you on your very meaningful article which came
from the heart, and which I am sure, is of a gret inspiration to
others like me who read it.
I notice that you have taken to Soofisism...that is interesting, because I have a very good friend who is a Soofi Shaykh and who I met here with his family, and they have now moved to South Africa. I was in South Africa recently to attend an Islamic conference organised by the Shaykh's followers. I have recently become a practicing muslim...although I used to be earlier on in life, but have been going on and off practising as a muslim.......my excuse is sheer laziness, of which I am ashamed to admit. Anyway I just wanted to touch base with you and say how much I enjoyed your article and I admire your courage.
Your muslim brother in Spain.
god made adam eve, not adam and steve you queer loving loser.
i hope and pray you GO TO HELL, I HOPE YOU BURN TO A CRISP
I HOPE WHERE YOU LIVE PEOPLE SPIT ON YOUR UGLY,CONFUSED,QUEER,IGNORANT,STUPID,FACE.
I HATE YOU SO BAD THAT I WOULD WANT TO GO TO HELL SO I COULD
KICK YOUR AS S MY SELF. YOU GIVE MUSLIMS A BAD NAME YOU IDIOT
YEAH YOUR DOING YOUR BOYFRIEND IN THE ANUS AND YOU EXPECT TO GOTO
HEAVEN YEAH HELLLLO HOW STUPID ARE YOU? I HOPE YOUR ONE OF
THOSE PEOPLE THAT PEOPLE IN HEAVEN CAN DO WHAT EVER THEY WANT TO YOU
SO WE CAN ENTERTAIN THEMSELVES.WELL I GO TO GO SO I HOPE YOU HAVE
FUN IN HELL I HOPE YOU GET BURNED WORSE THEN ANYBODY ELSE THAT
GOES TO HELL.
QUEERJIHAD=GAY STRUGGLE WHAT A LAUGH
Assalamualaikum to everyone,
I am a muslim man and I am gay. I accept whatever Allah has given me and after all these years I've been fighting to be the man who I am not (i.e to be str8) but Allah is Great. Why should I change his creation (i.e me?).
And you homophobics should be ashamed of yourself. Who do you think you are?? Saints? Angels? Like you have no sins that ONLY us going to HELL??? I suppose your life is so immaculate and pure that you pray to Him everyday with full of "khusyu'", fasting with REAL fasting (not even thinking the bad thoughts) etc. If you think you don't have all these qualities, PLEASE do not try to be a preacher.
You Muslim HOMOPHOBICS make me SICK!!
I can't sleep at night thinking that guys like you still exist! JUst like the Nazis.... homophobics!
Allah is the Most Compassionate. It is up to Him who He'll give HELL or HEAVEN. NOT you.. not even your deeds!!!
May Allah guide us all.
p/s please do not post my e-mail address here
I am not a judgemental, omniscient person and my hypocrisy only goes so far. I never pass judgement on people who I've never met, but in your case I'll make an exception. I think that you are a fucking idiot. What do you think?
Takes one to know one, they say. - Sulayman X
Assalamualaikum w.b. May peace be upon you
Through God grace I came across your article in www.gay.com. I wept while reading your article abt your confession....well its my sentiment exactly. Nobody can feel what we feel cos they are not in our shoes. I am a 29 yrs old gay muslim Singaporean malay male. Your article had made me into a much more stronger person...and i hope it will at the same time help those others who is in those sort of dilemma. Thank you for all the consoling word....it really add color to my day today. May Allah bless all of us. Insyallah.
To all the Muslims, Christians & Jews in the world
Let us use our brains for a moment shall we?
When the the Koran, Old Testament & the Gospel were written, there was really no understanding of sexuality. In fact, life was more a matter of surviving wars and procreating in order to allow one's culture to survive. People's understanding of anything more than the basics was limited by the consolidation of power and education to an elite within their race.
As humanity grows we have the (granted) luxury of educating the masses and life is no longer as simple as "get married, have children, pray, die". We understand so much more about ourselves through science and the removal of absolute power by the (inevitably) corrupt.
We now celebrate the love between two persons, whether it be motherly, fatherly, brotherly, sisterly or between two lovers. We have grown in the past few thousand years into a world were there is time to love and celebrate that love.
Why then can it be so hard to understand that the Koran and Bible were referring to rape and abuse of boys and men when it refers to 'homosexuality'. We know that it was a common trait of the times. And that if one can't understand that, then why can't one understand this one simple thing:
"How can one be condemned for loving another?"
Its really as simple as that. Love.
An agrument saying, "One must not sleep around", is something arguable. So as to not spread disease. Or if one is married, then it would break your duty to another. That atleast is an agrument.
Saying "Allah/God is disgusted with men who love men", isn't realistic. Allah has reasons for his laws. They have substance. They have a foundation. Allah isn't subject to human emotion as we understand it. For Allah to be against 'rape' is arguable as it is abuse of another human being, one of his children.
I support whole heartedly the people who are standing up to question the establishment. 'Blind Faith' is something I would think the people of the world in the 21st century would be embarrassed about.

Congratulations on your bold and brave action with the building
of the website.
Its people like you who make a difference in the world!!
Vancouver, British Columbia
Praise be to Allah!
I am impressed with the courage you have to open this site and encourage dialogue. This issue is one that upsets many, this is obvious from the reponses. Lest we assume to be God, we cannot judge each other. Beliefs that we have are valid, though yours and mine may be different. How quickly Muslims, as Christians do, condem when they have been instructed to love rather than judge. It is not salvation to another to say a person should be thrown off a cliff because he or she believes differently than I do. If we all were able to love, these issues would not be divisive.
Go well with the grace and peace of God.
Salam my dear brother,
As brothers in Islam, i here come to warn and also help you. I read your situation and perspective. Its a typical situation where counsellors see the upbringing of gay in a person's life. You are very perfect just confused. The Quran is a book of God, Allah Azzal wal Jallah. Allah clearly did condemm the homosexuals in the story of Lot [NabiAllah Lut a.s]. Muhammad in his sayings [hadiths] have also condemm such people. Frankly i did not believe that gays in islam was contrary. Like others who came to your website, despised you.. i think they are wrong to do that instead they should help you. I read a past message you posted by a muslim who sincerely wanted to help you. i'm very touched. I'm not living in the U.S but i'm from the East. Where life is more conservative and religious. Life in the U.S are totally not my cup of tea. Liberation of queer have influenced you a lot.
I'm a wondering person... i try to see what's eating up the integrity of the people nowadays and i happen to bump to your website while i was trying to find out the life of gay people in the States at www.gay.com. If you would like to please hear me out on where you gone wrong... you can always email me .
I'm a ex counsellor and educator of Islamic studies and also academic studies in a development centre. I had resigned due to my other busy schedules.
