This phenomenon of “Gay-Mosques” or “Gay-Friendly Mosques” has been plaguing the Muslim-Community, in the United States, for some time. Now, this phenomenon has spread elsewhere, like in Paris, France, for example. This entire concept of a “Gay-Mosques” or “Gay-Friendly Mosque” is not only utterly ridiculous, but, misleading & deceptive as well…don’t worry, I’ll get into why.
So, for Muslims, of liked-minds, whom also find this notion just as ridiculous as I do, the best way to respond to something like this would be the following:
If some group of Muslims who happen to be Child-Molesters, or Rapists, who want to open a Mosque, which cater to Child-Molesters, or Rapists, let’s see how many people would be up-in-arms in support of that. I mean, really, intelligently observe, reflect upon how ridiculous that would sound, a “Pedophile/Pedophile-Friendly Mosque”, or a “Rapist/Rapist-Friendly Mosque”.
Would any Muslim, Non-Muslim, or any morally-sound and/or intelligent Human being, whom you know, actually take a notion such as that seriously?!!! Well, then, what in the Hell would make anyone think that a “Homo-Mosque/Homo-Friendly-Mosque”, or a “Gay/Gay-Friendly-Mosque” would be something that is a thing to establish?!!!
The Mosques are the properties of Allah(Noble Qur’an: Chpt.72, V.18). And as such, are required to be established upon certain things, mainly, the following:
1. They have to be places where only Allah is worshipped
2. They have to be places where all of the 5-prayers are made, 24/7.
3. They have to be places where the Muslims are in complete-control over & cannot be converted into something other than Mosques.
Now, Imma just concentrate on the first condition that I’ve just mentioned:
Allah clearly states, “Have you not seen one, whom after Allah has guided, take his own desires as a god, then Allah, knowingly, left him astray, as well as sealing his hearing, heart & sight as a punishment? Do you not reflect?”.(Noble Qur’an: Chpt.45, V.23)
As Muslims, we’ve all been given divine-guidance from Allah. However, unfortunately, instead of cherishing this great favor & blessing, from the Lord of the Universe, we blatantly insult this guidance, by rebelling against the commandments of Allah & His Messenger, Muhammad (Peace be upon him). To put it even more plainly: Homosexuality, like any & every other sin, in Islam, is not acceptable to Allah, at all. But, sadly, the Muslims, in order to continue to be accepted by those whom are Non-Muslims, in Non-Islamic societies, and/or as a result of just falling for the deception of the Devil, have decided to compromise on everything & stand-up for nothing. And, this issue is not very different than any other issue that Muslims have sold-out on.
Now, going back to what I had mentioned, concerning, the Mosques being the properties of Allah, this is something that has to be taken very seriously. How can a Muslim really respect the sanctity of the Mosques of Allah by attributing things which Allah clearly hates with these places of exclusive-worship to Him? You cannot serve Allah, as your god, and your desires, at the same time, you have to pick who/what you’re going to devote yourself to. A Muslim cannot, in Islamic-Conscience, justify their desires or whims, which directly contradict what Allah has prohibited, it just doesn’t work that way. You can’t mix something pure with something impure & expect to yield a pure-result: best-case scenario, they, the pure & impure cancel one another out, while the worse-case scenario, the impure completely dominates the pure…either way, you’re not winning. Furthermore, Allah clearly mentions how He had destroyed & erased the entire existence of the first people in Human-History whom were Homosexuals(Qasa-ul-Anbiya’/Stories of the Prophets, by Abul-Fida’ Isma`il ibn-Kathir ad-Dimashqi); so, what makes you think that this “Homo-Mosque” idea is acceptable at all to Allah, when He had specifically chose to destroy a people for being Homosexual?
Basically, the Muslims have become the religious-versions of whores of a male-prison, ready willing & able to drop-the-soap, in the shower-room, in front of anyone/everyone, on purpose. Now, if you drop the soap in the shower-room of a prison, what do you think/expect to happen? You figure it out!!! It’s very sad, how Muslims feel that they have to compromise everything, that is Islamically mandatory/prohibitory, just to fit into the circles of the in-crowds of their peers or societies. And, ironically (as you’d think that the Muslims would’ve learned this by now), nobody respects a sell-out, even the person/persons, society/societies whom you’re selling-out to.
And, now, ironically, sadly, shamefully, in the the present-day, we as Muslims, think that it’s “progressive”, or “politically-correct”, or “cute” to have a “Gay/Gay-Friendly Mosque”, to show people that we’re inclusive-News-Flash: THAT’S NOT HOW YOU SHOW PEOPLE INCLUSIVITY!!! We show people inclusivity by giving anyone/everyone their rights as creations of Allah & as Human beings, and equal, fair opportunities to learn about Islam, to make their own choices whether to to accept Islam or not. We don’t show inclusivity by accepting the sins of people & passing them off as something that’s “not a big-deal”, or “not important”, or “small-issues”. Anything that either Allah or His Messenger made prohibited needs to be treated as such, and it is not okay, Islamically, to pretend, or to water-down the severity & ugliness of those prohibitions, just to be seen as “modern”, or “progressive”, or “pluralistic”, or in the eyes of our current societies.
