11) Sodomy

Beliefs & Practices, Major Sins

Allah, Most High recounts in His Book the story of Lut’s people in several positions. Allah, the Almighty says,

“When Our decree issued, We turned (the cities) upside down, and rained down on them brimstones hard as baked clay, spread, layer on layer, marked from thy Lord; nor are they ever far from those who do wrong!” (Hud: 82-83)

This abode is not far from those who do wrong amongst our nation if they committed the same sin.

Therefore, the Prophet (pbuh) said,

“What I fear most is that my nation may follow the crime of Lut’s people.” (Tirmidhi)
