Islam and homosexuality : An analysis of the link between homosexuality and faith (English)
Abstract [en]

Gay sexuality is seen as a great sin and consequently punishable in several countries in parts of the Muslim community’s. Homosexual persons are being subjected to related violence and dignity because of the expression of their gender, sexuality or honorary norms. The purpose of this paper is to find out how homosexual Muslims living in the city of Umeå unite their sexual orientation with their beliefs and see if they believe Islam as a religious obstacle   or if there are other cultural phenomena that prevent them from ”coming out”

 

The result of this study shows that the majority of the interviewed people do not see religion as an obstacle to their sexual orientation, by questioning the hadith statements of trust. Respondents argue that Hadith literature came a long way after the death of Prophet Muhammad. The majority of the interviewed claims that the Hadith literature is human constructions that were written down long after the death of Prophet Muhammad.
