Ask The Imam Question and Answer

1039 I am a Muslim man that is married and have children, recently on TV on Eastenders there is a Muslim man who is married but is gay and leaves his wife to be with a White man, and it’s made it seem that being gay is ok.

I too am a Muslim gay man and have found a White man I have fallen in love with and want to be with him, if I should leave my wife to be with this man will Islam be accepting and will the lord forgive me.
As Muslims our source of guidance is Quran and Sunnah and not television programmes.

Homosexuality in Islam is completely forbidden and a Grave Sin. You have to stop this relationship immediately and ask forgiveness from Allah (S.W.T) for what you have been or are involved with and sincerely repent.

It is important to remember that the people in these types of soaps are actors following a script written by others in order for the program to be successful. It is not a source of guidance.

As for your relationship with your wife; we urge you to concentrate on your marriage, make every effort to reconcile the relationship with your wife and live your life in accordance to Islam.

Please refer to Q1011 on our website, as it covers the topic of Homosexuality in Islam.
