I'm Muslim and I'm gay but I still worship and love god VERY much and I negate my sexual feelings in public and at home but I recently had a dream that I had a mate and I felt really comforted and beloved and I loved that feeling but in the end I wanna go to heaven so I was thinking should I just keep my sexual feelings negated until I die and/or have kids with a woman (if it's possible since I too could love a woman very much)?
Many gay Muslims choose to act on their feelings. You say that you felt comforted and loved, right? Well, God loves you. Wouldn't he want to see you happily in love with another man, instead of unhappy with a woman? Being gay doesn't hurt anyone; it's just love. And as long as you are a good person, you will go to heaven, regardless of who you fall in love with.
FIRST UP… NO… being gay is sooo NOT wrong!! This is a touchy question… I don’t know much about the ethical teachings of Islam yet but I know a lot about Christianity which has similar ethical teachings. I believe everyone naturally sins and that if I try to live life as pure and good as I can then rejoicing in the ‘sin’ of homosexuality is trivial compared to the goodness I had created (I hope that makes sense). You could also be in a relationship with someone and not have sexual intercourse… therefore you are not acting upon your lustful desires resulting in you being sin free but happy (then again you will be tempted a lot, but with the help of God I’m sure you can resist). BUT if you honestly believe it to be a mortal sin then with God’s help I’m sure you can at least live celibate. Just do what your heart tells you not a book written by men. You were made the way you are by God therefore what you feel shouldn’t be seen as wrong but natural! Remember no matter what be happy :D
no, being a gay does not matter its only a personal choice. but its difficult to control ourselves from mating because it is very comfort able. you should not negate your feelings because its not wrong.i am Muslim too and think that if its wrong then why ALLAH ALMIGHTY declared that the slaves (women) were halal to Muslim men and also holy prophet had about eleven wives and he had babies from every wife means he mated with her wives.. and his life for us is perfect to follow....
I think that god made all people to be happy, and not unhappy. He made you gay as well. Did god mean that you shuold suffer? I don't think that. Most of religion, any religion, is dictated by people-not only god's words.
And people of course have problams with excepting different people.
Follow your heart.
Well, do what FEELS right. not what you THINK is right. I mean, do you feel comfortable with men? Does you heart leap when you see those 6 packs? Then follow your feelings. God loves you very much. All are children of God. You are a Muslim, he is a Hindu, I am a Christian, she's a Jew. Who cares? We are all brothers and sisters. Love everyone equally. There is only one God, he is only worshiped in many forms. And it doesn't matter if you love a guy, a girl or even a shemale. As long as you are good and kind and loving and a follower of God, then you will go to heaven.
All the best!
Being gay is not so much about being right or being wrong. We are all pretty sinful and blind really. Try reading Jeremiah 17:9. Our own thoughts and feelings can mislead us easily.
God is good and faithful. 'Being gay' just means you have to dependent on Him each day to stay in His Holy Presence.
I pray that He will deliver you from the wretchedness one day soon, and you will be in His Awesomeness all the days of your life.
Okay I am not homophobic. I do not hate gay people at all. But I do not support it. I'm sorry but I believe we were created to be with a man and a woman and that if you feel attracted to the same sex, that was a trial, a REALLY hard one, God has given you. However, that being said, you are NOT a bad person! And of COURSE God loves you! People say because I don't support homosexuality I hate gays. But the thing is, being gay is just one little part of you, and just like how I don't support my cousin doing drugs but still love him, I feel like that toward my gay friends. I love them, but don't believe that that is right. So I don't think being gay is right, but I also don't think you will go to hell for feeling that way. It is a trial. Much love.
