Sure Whether An Advocate of Homosexuality (or Sodomy) is Your Child’s Teacher?

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.

Allaah [Glorified and Exalted be He] said:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا قُوا أَنفُسَكُمْ وَأَهْلِيكُمْ نَارًا وَقُودُهَا النَّاسُ وَالْحِجَارَةُ عَلَيْهَا مَلَائِكَةٌ غِلَاظٌ شِدَادٌ لَّا يَعْصُونَ اللَّهَ مَا أَمَرَهُمْ وَيَفْعَلُونَ مَا يُؤْمَرُونَ

O you who believe! Ward off from yourselves and your families a Fire (Hell) whose fuel is men and stones, over which are (appointed) angels stern (and) severe, who disobey not, (from executing) the Commands they receive from Allah, but do that which they are commanded. [Surah At-Tahreem. Aayah 6]

Al-Allaamah Abdullah Bin Muhammad Bin Humayd [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “The teacher who teachers your child should be an upright example for his pupils, they take him as an example in fulfilling the commands of Allaah and in his manners, just as Ut’bah Bin Abee Sufyaan said to his children’s teacher, “Indeed, I have come to you to teach my children; firstly, rectify yourself and adhere to your religion, because their eyes are fixed on you. They will not see you beautifying or doing something, except that they will blindly follow you. Teach them the best of the narrations, meaning, the best and most beneficial, and the most beneficial science. Keep them away from flirting with women and composing love poems about them; rather teach them the hadeeth and the Qur’aan, and poetry and etiquettes of the Arabs that develops bravery in the souls, heroism, nobility and adherence to good customs”. This is what Ut’bah said to the teacher of his children- that my children will follow your deeds just as they learn from your sciences, therefore your actions must be good. If the teacher strives together with the households and the fathers, the child will be given a good and upright upbringing, and Allaah will benefit Islaam and the Muslims through him. However, if his teacher is one of the corrupters, he will follow his footsteps because a student follows the fundamental principles of the teacher. (1)

The above is enough for any Muslim parent who appears to have accepted that children can be taught by those who normalise and openly call to major sins. Read here: The LGBTQ Movement: Homosexuality and Islam: Understanding Muslim Attitudes To Homosexuality (Islam 5.7):

Islam and Homosexuality: What happened in Sodom and Gomorrah? The Prophet Lot (Loot) and his Daughters: In the Bible and the Qur’an:

Download The Most Comprehensive Work On The Subject of Homosexuality In Islam Titled ‘Why Homosexuality is Prohibited in Islam:

Al-Waleed Bin Abdil Malik [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “Had Allaah [The Mighty and Majestic] not narrated to us to us the story of the people of Prophet Lut [peace be upon him] in the Qur’aan, I would have never thought (or imagine) that a man would have sexual relations with another man”. (2)

Finally, Imaam Ibnul Qayyim [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said: “When it is the case that Allaah has prohibited sexual intercourse through the vagina due to an apparent harm [i.e. at the time of menstruation or post-natal bleeding], then what about the area [i.e. the anus] which is a place for removal of harmful things (i.e. faeces) permanently….” The Imaam also said, It (i.e. anal sex) is one of the greatest causes of punishment and blessings being taken away because it brings about Allaah’s Anger and Curse. It also deprives the person of shyness because shyness gives life to the heart [i.e. makes it hate and stay away from evil and repugnant acts]. However, if the heart is deprived of this shyness, it starts beautifying repugnant acts and declaring good acts repugnant, and thus corruption becomes strengthened and dominant”. (3)
