قال الشيخ ابن عثيمين حفظه الله :
هناك قسم ثالث فاسق مارد ماجن ، يتحدث بالزنى افتخاراً والعياذ بالله ، يقول : إنه سافر إلى البلد الفلاني ، وإلى البلدالفلاني ، وفجر وفعل وزنى بعدة نساء ، وما أشبه ذلك ، يفتخر بهذا.
هذا يجب أن يستتاب فإن تاب وإلا قتل ؛ لأن الذي يفتخر بالزنى مقتضى حاله أنه استحل الزنى والعياذ بالله ، ومن استحلالزنى فهو كافر . " شرح رياض الصالحين " ( 1 / 116 ) .
Homosexuals are Apostates
Following is taken from:
"Therefore, the prohibition of homosexuality is an absolute injunction established from evidence that is unquestionably established قطعى الثبوت (qat‘i al-thubut) and unquestionable in its purport قطعى الدلالة (qat‘i aldilalah). It is also from amongst the essentials of deen as the Muslim masses in general are aware of the prohibition of this abhorrent practice. One who considers the practice of homosexuality to be permissible denies an absolute injunction that is also from the ‘dharooriyyaat al-deen’ (essentials of deen). Consequently, such person immediately renders himself apostate. Ignorance is not considered to be an excuse, and any other divergent interpretation such as the assertion that the prohibition is related to lust and fashion is inadmissible. ‘Sincere love’ cannot legitimise a prohibited practice. For example, even in the morally degenerative, secular, liberal society that we live in today, incest between brother and sister, mother and son or daughter and father are universally considered to be abhorrent. Claims of ‘sincere love’ do not legitimise such relationships. In the same manner, homosexuality cannot be legitimized by claims of sincere love. Whereas man made norms are subject to change, the rules set down by Allah are immutable, eternal and based on a higher wisdom." [By Mufti Muhammad Zubair Butt}
