Has anyone ever read of theories stating certain sexualities can be classified as "diseases" or even that you are born with a certain sense of sexuality? (gender aside).
What if science in the future states sexualities such as homosexuality, bisexuality or even more extreme cases such as "SM" or pedophilia as a disease?
(note i am not comparing the more common sexualities such as homosexual or the likes to the more extreme cases.)
Point being, if such sexualities are indeed something you are born with.
same-gender sex has been around since the ancient greek.
What would a person do if he was born in such a manner?
(all assuming that if the theory is true, then what?
one could argue how the verse 36:36 should be interpreted?
I am not questioning your translation Dr. Shabbir, simply stating that its meaning may not fully be understood just yet.)
Naturally i am unsure if there is a verse in the Qu'ran that explicitly forbids same sex intercourse.
Which then... there'd be no reason to answer any of the above.. :p
However assuming that it is forbidden and also a born condition.
Being forbidden to "love" one another your entire lifespan earth... i can scarcely imagine..
There is still so much we do not know of the human brain.
Truly it is one of Allahs most wondrous piece of art.
