What Does the Quran Say About the LGBTQ

In the Qur'an, we read loud and clear, that God proclaims homosexuals as "transgressing/degenerate" people.

God also extends this title to all kinds of sexual deviants, whether homosexual or heterosexual. We read that adulterers and fornicators are also referred to as being "transgressing/degenerate".

Below are all the verses in the Qur'an that specifically speak of homosexuality:

(26:165) Do you approach the males of the world?

(26:166) And forsake the wives your Lord created for you? Indeed, you are a transgressing people.

(7:80) And Lot, he said to his people: "Do you commit immorality such as none of those of the worlds had done before?"

(7:81) "You are approaching the men out of desire instead of the women! Indeed, you are a transgressing people."

(27:54) And Lot, when he said to his people: "Why do you commit immorality when you can clearly see?"

(27:55) "You are approaching the men out of desire instead of the women! Indeed, you are an ignorant people."

(29:28) And Lot, when he said to his people: "You commit an immorality that no others in the world have done before!"

(29:29) "You approach the males, and you sever the way, and you bring all vice into your place." But the only response from his people was to say: "Bring us the retribution of God, if you are being truthful!"​

To the liberals: you're not helping anyone when you claim that a destructive behavior (read here on the importance of sexual morality in society) is fine when it is in reality leading people to hell; leading society to destruction. The act of criticizing such degeneracy is in fact constructive and just. Believers of God do not fear people, they fear God. God is never shy from telling you the truth:

And the devil said when the matter was complete: "God had promised you the promise of truth, and I promised you and broke my promise. And I had no power over you except that I invited you and you responded to me. So do not blame me, but blame yourselves; I cannot help you nor can you help me. I reject that you have set me up as a partner before this; the wicked will have a painful retribution." (Qur'an 14:22)

"While the so-called liberal Muslim approach may appeal to those who wish to appease the vociferous so-called Gay Rights movement, or who wish not to be seen to be bigoted, or who are (understandably) appalled at the Islamicist practice of murdering homosexuals and wish to counter that evil, their arguments – well intentioned or not – do not stand up to a rigorous Qur’anic analysis. In the Qur’anic worldview, male homosexual activity is sin – along with heterosexual activity outside of marriage. There is simply no getting away from this fact. Yet as concerns a community of unbelievers, beyond the duty to exhort people to turn away from sin, the believer has no remit." - Sam Gerrans

To the conservatives: what exactly have you conserved over the last 50-100 years? The West has turned into a cesspool of degeneracy under your watch and nothing has been done about it. The abhorrent destruction of basic morals under the slogans of "social justice" and "tolerance", has been welcomed with open arms.​​

Homosexuality in the United States just 10-15 years ago was considered a sin by conservatives, yet today, it is now paraded and accepted. Abortion was seen as despicable, now it's swept under the rug and ignored, as long as it's not "late-term abortion" or "at-birth abortion"!

These slowly-moving stages of social engineering are commissioned out in due process all thanks to the emasculation and feminization of our society as a whole.


Contrary to modernist belief, it is not a sin to judge others, rather God says that you should judge, but judge justly (it is only through masculine assertiveness that we can restore vital morals and beliefs) :

Listeners to falsehoods, eaters of illicit earnings. If they come to you, judge between them, or turn away from them. If you turn away from them, they will not harm you in the least. But if you judge, judge between them equitably. God loves the equitable. (Qur'an 5:42)

God instructs you to give back things entrusted to you to their owners. And when you judge between people, judge with justice. God’s instructions to you are excellent. God is All-Hearing, All-Seeing. (Qur'an 4:58)

"Mankind was a single community, then God sent Prophets to bring good news and warning, and with them He sent the Book with the Truth, to judge between people in the disagreements. It was only those to whom it was given who disagreed about it after clear verses had come to them, because of rivalry between them. So by His leave God guided the believers to the truth they had differed about: God guides whoever He wills to a straight path." (Qur’an 2:213)


Some in the "Qur'an alone" community (only those indoctrinated by liberal feminist ideology) blatantly spread falsehood by stating that homosexuality isn't forbidden by God. They say that the word "approach" used in the Qur'an isn't meant to be sexual. They argue that the word comes from the same root as 'aatoo' as in 'aaatoo az-zakaat' (to bring zakat). They ultimately come to the convoluted conclusion that the verse is only forbidding societies from upholding the "dominant male" principle (ie the patriarchy). The beta males that push this form of delusion are not only in complete contradiction with the Qur'an's obvious pro-patriarchal stance on life and society, but they are also in contradiction with simple biology and history. For example, all of the prophets of God had been males, and the Qur'an specifically and consistently refers to men as being leaders of their families and tribes.

Nonetheless, their claims are easily debunked just by reading these two verses from Surah 2:

And they ask you about the menstruations? Say: "It is harmful, so retire yourselves sexually from the women during the menstruations, and do not approach them until they are cleansed. When they are cleansed, then you may approach them as God has commanded you." God loves the repenters and He loves the pure. (Qur'an 2:222)

Your women are a tilth for you; so come to your tilth as you will... (Qur'an 2:223)

The word "approach" in the Quran is clearly used several times to describe sexual acts, thus in conclusion, the Quran specifically prohibits all forms of sexual activity between men (ie homosexuality), as well as all forms of sexual activity outside the bond of marriage (heterosexual fornication/adultery). God revealed the Qur'an in easy to understand Arabic. Unfortunately, there will always be people that fabricate their own interpretations to suit their desires:

Among them is a group who distort the Book with their tongues so that you think it is from the Book when it is not from the Book. They say, 'it is from God', but it is not from God. They tell a lie against God and they know it. (Qur'an 3:78)
