Brief Comments on Riyaadh al-Saaliheen #16


بـسـم الله والحـمـد لله والـصلاة والـسـلام عــلى رسـول الله، وبـعـد

[Sharh Riyaadh al-Saaliheen, pg. 497-498]

Shaikh Muhammad ibn Saaleh al-`Uthaymeen رحمه الله said:

Allaah تعالى said:

{ولا تقربوا الزنى إنه كان فاحشة وساء سبيلا}

{And come not near to unlawful sex. Verily, it is a Faahishah (shameful deed) and an evil opening the road (to other evils)} [Surah al-Israa’ (17):32]

And Loot عليه السلام said to his people:

{أتأتون الفاحشة ما سبقكم بها من أحد من العالمين}

{Do you commit al-Faahishah (lewdness) such as no people in creation (ever) committed before you?} [Surah al-A`raaf (7): 80]

He تعالى referred homosexuality as: “al-Faahishah”; and unlawful sex as: “Faahishah” – i.e. ONE of the many shameful deeds; but for homosexuality, He تعالى referred as the greatest shameful deed. We ask Allaah for our well-being.
