What is the punishment for homosexuals (gays and lesbians) in Islam?


From www.answering-christianity.com/blog/index.php/topic,2442.msg11071.html#msg11071:


Assalyum alekum 
I have read this article and I really like it it's very convincing
But there is a sahih Hadith that says Homosexuals should be killed if they did Zinaa 
ain't this Contradicting?


Wa Alaikum As'salam dear brother,

We already know from the Glorious Quran, that Allah Almighty punished with GREAT PUNISHMENT the people of Sodom and Gomorrah, - Prophet Lot's people, - because they were homosexuals and great sinners.

Homosexuals, if persist on doing their acts, then they would be considered spreading mischief in the land, and striving to turn the society into the doomed-to-Hell Sodom and Gomorrah ones.  And we know from the Glorious Quran that the latter were doomed with a mighty destruction.  Their punishment can reach the death penalty:

[005:033]  The punishment of those who wage war against God and His Apostle, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter;

Saudi Arabia is heading that way.  Homosexuality is on the rise there.  The swines of the desert follow a false Islam:

so the Hadith only applies on those who persist on it?


The Holy Quran Commands to punish the homosexual men, and to lock in the houses the lesbian women until death comes upon them, or until they repent.  Let us look at Noble Verses 4:15-17:

"If any of your women are guilty of lewdness, Take the evidence of four (Reliable) witnesses from amongst you against them; and if they testify, confine them to houses until death do claim them, or God ordain for them some (other) way.   (The Noble Quran, 4:15)"

"If two men among you are guilty of lewdness, punish them both. If they repent and amend, Leave them alone; for God is Oft-returning, Most Merciful.   (The Noble Quran, 4:16)"

"Allah accept the repentance of those who do evil in ignorance and repent soon afterwards; to them will Allah turn in mercy: For Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom.  (The Noble Quran, 4:17)"

What is the punishment for the gay men?

It was left open for the Islamic court to judge on based on each individual situation.  However, if the CONVICTED FELON of any crime goes back to doing the same crime that he was convicted and punished for, then his punishment could reach the death penalty as I already showed in the Noble Verse above.  Also, notice again in Noble Verse 4:17 above, Allah Almighty accepts the repentance of those who do evil in ignorance.  The Islamic court would most likely grant the benefit of the doubt to the felons who do their crimes the first time, as this is almost always the standard practice for all courts all around the world.  But if you get convicted again, then the punishment would be much more severe.

I hope this helps, insha'Allah.

Take care,
Osama Abdallah

Does Islam really allow homosexual marriages?

Science proved that Homosexuals are born natural. How then can Islam prohibit homosexuality?
