Pakistan political history is marked with leadership emerging from almost any type of background. We have cricketer-turned politicians, we have actress-turned politicians and so on. But Bilawal Zardari has coloured our faces with a highly disgusting element. Bilawal Zardari, being a registered gay in the UK, has introduced us as a nation led by a gay and possibly, in the future, ruled by a gay. On coming into power, Bilawal Zardari will try to pass laws, making same sex marriages in Pakistan legal. Let’s see this moral degradation of Bilawal Zardari in the Islamic perspective.
The Qur’an describes that everything has been created in pairs which complement one another.Procreation is another way of fulfilling human needs, for those whom God blesses with children. The institution of marriage is considered the foundation of Islamic society, the natural state in which all people have been created to live.
Pairing of male and female is thus part of human nature and the natural order. Marriage and family is the accepted way in Islam for a person’s emotional, psychological, and physical needs to be met. The Qur’an describes the husband/wife relationship as one of love, tenderness, and support.
Homosexuality is one of the most disgusting sins and greatest crimes.
Shari’ah law, which is extracted from both the Qur’an and Muhammad’s Sunnah categorically prohibits and condemns homosexual acts.
The concept and practice of homosexuality clash with the “natural” order in which God created human beings. It causes havoc to the institution of family and marriage.
In Islamic terminology, homosexuality is alternatively called al-fahsha’ (an obscene act), shudhudh (abnormality), or ‘amal qawm Lut (behavior of the People of Lut). Islam teaches that believers should neither participate in nor support homosexuality.
The Qur’an shares stories which are meant to teach people valuable lessons. The Qur’an tells the story of the people of Lut (Lot), which is similar to the story as shared in the Old Testament of the Bible. We learn of an entire nation which was destroyed by God due to their obscene behavior, which included rampant homosexuality. As a prophet of God, Lut preached to his people. He said to his people: ‘Will you commit lewdness such as no people in creation ever committed before you? For you come in lust to men in preference to women. No, you are indeed a people transgressing beyond bounds’ (Qur’an 7:80-81).
In another verse, Lut advised them: ‘Of all the creatures in the world, will you approach males, and leave those whom Allah has created for you to be your mates? No, you are a people transgressing (all limits)!’ (Qur’an 26:165-166). The people rejected Lut and threw him out of the city. In response, God destroyed them as punishment for their transgressions and disobedience.
The Qur’an, Hadith collections and scholars have much to say in regards to Homosexuality.
[وَاللَّذَانَ يَأْتِيَـنِهَا مِنكُمْ فَـَاذُوهُمَا]
(And the two persons among you who commit illegal sexual intercourse, punish them both).
Prophet Muhammad himself had stated:
«مَنْ رَأَيْتُمُوهُ يَعْمَلُ عَمَلَ قَوْمِ لُوطٍ، فَاقْتُلُوا الْفَاعِلَ وَالْمَفْعُولَ بِه»
(Whoever you catch committing the act of the people of Lut (homosexuality), then kill both parties to the act).
In Islam, it is clear that the punishment for homosexuality is death. Both the active and passive participants are to be killed.
The spread of homosexuality also causes veneral diseases which nobody can deny. Even if the only result of this perversion was AIDS – which attacks and destroys the immune system in humans – that would be enough as a punishment for those who practice it.
We as a nation must kick Bilawal Zardari out of Pakistan politics if we have to live a life of dignity and honour in this world; otherwise humiliation is likely to be our destiny. It is the need of the day to make a cry:
Go Gay Go.
