POEM: Some Views On Homosexuality & Same-Sex Attraction

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

Allah knows best. In my opinion, none is born gay.
 With Adam for Eve, men were designed to like females.
Same-sex attraction takes place when one exaggerates
One's love for another despite their gender's the same,
Or it is caused by how one was improperly raised.

It could be gay men were exposed to girl stuff when young,
Played with dolls and make-up till they were into fashion,
Trying women's clothing for fun with all the freedom,
Watching girly films, befriending girls - none to stop them,
Or shaytan misleads them to like guys they find handsome.

Lesbians or bi-girls may have been brought up roughly,
Told often to 'man up' and quit crying like babies,
Played sports enjoyed by boys till they behaved more manly,
Or shaytan misleads them to like girls for their beauty,
Or crush on another female who's smart, brave and sweet.

Homosexuality is a sin just like stealing,
Adultery, usury, lying and backbiting.
Evil desire which some incline to, it's forbidden.
It's Jihad for those who strive against this attraction -
All Muslims will be rewarded for avoiding sins.

Our love for a Muslim is for Allah's sake only.
When loving other Muslims, we love moderately.
Avoid prolonged eye-contact and sharing the same sheet,
Don't stare at each other's 'awrah. Do dress modestly.
May Allah the Almighty guide us always. Ameen.

Allah the Almighty said: "O' mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you nations and tribes so that you may know one another [not to despise each other]. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is the All-Knowing and Most Acquainted with all things." [Qur'an 49:13]

May Allah Almighty make us among His righteous friends whom He will welcome in Jannatul Firdaus near Him and His beloved Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam. Ameen. (old youtube channel)
