Homosexuality is not permitted in Islam

Homosexuality and lesbianism has no place in Islam. Sexual relationship between two same sex of men or sexual relationship between two to or more women is not permitted in Islam and people who dare to do this heinous crimes during the time of Prophet Lut (AlayehisSalam) had to face the consequences. Sex a sort of procedure given by Allah Rabbul Izzat to satisfy our lust and happiness and pleasure and to keep on growing and expanding our generations. But this sex should be pure and done between male and female and sex among only males known as homosexuality has no place in Islam and it is also mentioned in Holy Quran and Hatith to beware with such acts homosexuality. Hence the teachings of Quran are for whole humanity and one should not favour homosexuality of any kind. Sex is to be performed with mates only that too between married couple having legal relationship and sex is not allowed between two sexes on grounds of having any illicit relations prior to marriage. We often find young generations involved with this crime and often undertake such steps to cross the limits. Islam says not to have any kind of illegal relationship before marriage and once the person is married is free to do sex of his choice. As you sow shall you reap? Homosexuality is a social crime and even media keeps on highlighting it on news channel to advertise and gain popularity for both. Things which are not permitted by God should not be provoked to do it again and again. Sex is nice gift from God and has to be done in opposite sex that is among male and female within the bond of recognized marriage. Having sex by illicit relations is a crime and should not be done. Look at another creation of God the animals who find their proper male and female mates for doing sex and some human beings on the other hand are so worse than animals that they do such acts in society.

"Homosexuality is one of the most disgusting sins and greatest crimes. It is a vile perversion that goes against sound nature, and is one of the most corrupting and hideous sins. The punishment for homosexuality is death. Both the active and passive participants are to be killed whether or not they have previously had sexual intercourse in the context of a legal marriage. Some of the companions of the Prophet stated that [the perpetrator] is to be burned with fire. It has also been said that he should be stoned, or thrown from a high place."

Qur'an describes that everything has been created in pairs which complement one another. 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 relations as one of love, tenderness, and support. 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.
Because the evil consequences of homosexuality are among the worst of evil consequences, so its punishment is one of the most severe of punishments in this world and in the Hereafter.

"And come not near to unlawful sex. Verily, it is a Faahishah (i.e. anything that transgresses its limits: a great sin), and an evil way (that leads one to hell unless Allaah Forgives him)"
[al-Isra' 17:32]
"And (remember) Loot (Lot), when he said to his people: Do you commit the worst sin such as none preceding you has committed in the 'Aalameen (mankind and jinn)?"
[al-A'raaf 7:80]
Qur'an (4:16) "If two men among you are guilty of lewdness, punish them both. If they repent and amend, leave them alone"
Abu Dawud (4462) - The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, "Whoever you find doing the action of the people of Loot, execute the one who does it and the one to whom it is done."

Abu Dawud (4448) - "If a man who is not married is seized committing sodomy, he will be stoned to death." (Note the implicit approval of sodomizing one's wife).

al-Tirmidhi, Sunan 1:152 - [Muhammad said] "Whoever is found conducting himself in the manner of the people of Lot, kill the doer and the receiver."
