homosexuality is a forbidden action in Islam

From the Islamic standpoint, homosexuality is a forbidden action; a major sin
and anyone who partakes in it is considered a disobedient servant to Allah
that will acquire His displeasure and disapproval. This is clearly stated in the
three main sources of the Shariah: The Quran, the Sunnah, and the
consensus of all scholars, which extends from the time of the Prophet till
today. There has never been any debate or discussion regarding this
viewpoint amongst the scholars, past or present, simply because the matter
was always comprehensive and immutable. ANIC, representing over 200
Imams from across Australia, strongly rejects any claim that the ruling of the
practice of homosexuality is not clear in the Quran. This stems from absolute
ignorance of Islam and its principles.

It is clearly stated in the Holy Quran:
“And (remember) Lut (Lot), when he said to his people: ‘Do you commit the
worst sin such as none preceding you has committed in the ‘Aalameen
(mankind and jinn)?
Verily, you practise your lusts on men instead of women. Nay, but you are a
people transgressing beyond bounds (by committing great sins)’”
[al-A’raaf 7:80-81]
It is very clearly mentioned in this verse that the people of Lut were engaging
in homosexuality and it was a manifest sin. Many other verses imply the same
meaning and verdict without any disagreement or discrepancy on the matter.
From the Sunnah (The Prophetic Tradition) we find:
It was narrated that Ibn ‘Abbaas said: “The Prophet (peace and blessings
upon him) said “cursed is the one who does the action of the people of Lut.”
(Narrated by Ahmad, 1878.).
Once again, the Hadith is very explicit and comprehensible in its meaning and
many more similar Hadiths can be found to support this ruling.
The consensus of the scholars:
From the time of the Prophet until now, all scholars of every time and era,
have agreed that the practice of homosexuality is a forbidden act and a sin in
In conclusion, there is no doubt in Islam that homosexuality is a major sin
which Allah does not permit nor will He be pleased by those who practice it.
For anyone who claims otherwise, this will be considered an explicit distortion
of the accurate and true teachings of Islam.
The Australian National Imams Council would also like to emphasize that this
man who claims to be an Imam and recently appeared on Australian
television, is not recognized as an Imam by the Australian National Imams
Council nor the mainstream Muslim community.
Islam invites any Muslims who are engaging in any sin to sincerely repent to
Allah and ask for His forgiveness with the great hope that Allah is oft-merciful,
ever-forgiving. ANIC counsels anyone who is practicing this sin to seek
religious and spiritual advice from their local Imam. ANIC also warns the
Muslim community from seeking any religious advice from non-qualified and
non-mainstream Imams or Muslim individuals.
