How can I overcome homosexuality? طرق علاج من ابتلي بالشذوذ والميل للرجال


All praise is due to Allah alone, and may the Salah and Salam of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and his companions.

To answer your question, we say while seeking the success from Allah:

There is no doubt that homosexuality is a dangerous perversion, that may have resulted from numerous causes and influences - psychological, societal, and others.  However, you sensing that this is a mistake and perversion (deviation) from sound innate nature is first of the steps of overcoming it.

In order to leave this perverted inclination, I invite you to take the following measures:

1. Increase your remembrance and mention (dhikr) of Allah, the Exalted, and make sure to observe the obligatory acts, such as prayers and others.

2. Read what Allah, the Exalted, has mentioned about the people of Lut in His Wise Book (Qur'an), how He described them, and how He punished them.

3. Distance yourself from every means of perversion towards, or inclination for, men (i.e. homosexuality), and I particularly warn you from visiting and seeing explicit gay websites and movies, because that is one of the biggest means that strengthens this perversion and keeps it going. And likewise keep away from dirty friends and company.

4. Remember the punishment that Allah, the Exalted, has prescribed for the one who falls into homosexuality is death, whether he be the initiator or the  participant, and married or single.

5. I advise you to read the following book "al-Jawab al-Kafi Liman Sa’ala ‘An al-Dawa al-Shafi" of Ibn al-Qayyim. [Translator's Note: An English translation of this book is published by Dar al-Manarah, titled, "Al-Da'a wa Al-Dawa'a - The illness and Medicine: The adequate answers for those who asked about the healing medicine by Imam Ibn Qayem Al-Guzyah"]

Be patient, continue efforts to keep patience, and Allah will make these whispers go away from you, because I know a person who was tried with that with which you are being tried (i.e. homosexuality), then Allah helped him to overcome it, and he became free of it after striving hard.

Your brother,

Prof. Khalid al-Musleh
