First Muslim gay civil partnership in UK


The death threats that the couple received,in both UK and Pakistan, did not seem firm enough to stop them from pursuing their irrational deed. Kausar, from Lahore and Kamar from Kashmir consummated their gay marriage in Britain last Sunday after having been living together for a year.

Kausar and Kamar have met three years ago at Birmingham while studying the two met three years ago when they were studying business and health care management. In an absurd remark to the “Sunday Mercury”Newsapaper, Kausar, described by her partner as a soul mate, that: “This country allows us rights and it's a very personal decision that we have taken. It's no one's business as to what we do with our personal lives!”

“The problem with Pakistan is that everyone believes he is in charge of other people lives and can best decide about the morals of others but that's not the right approach. We are in this state because of our clergy, who have hijacked our society, which was once tolerant and respected individuals' freedoms,” she added.

The couple could not pursue their marriage because such preposterous acts, which not only go against human nature, but also constitute a grave sin, are deemed as impermissible in their native country and in accordance to the Islamic Sharia.

Married couples who are both from the same sex cannot produce children, and in most cases, the alternative is adoption. Thus, the states that seek to facilitating and legalizing same-sex marriage under the pretext of the freedom of man and that deem themselves advanced and civilized ought to make use of its progress in what benefits man and preserves his dignity and not in what could destroy his entity and entire existence.


As for homosexuality, His Eminence, the late Religious Authority, Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra), says: “Homosexuality is the sexual act represented by lesbianism or sodomy and that is linked sometimes to disinclining to a partner of a different sex and strongly inclining towards a partner of the same sex. This is one of the big sins and forbidden acts, whose punishment, according to our Shariah, could reach the level of killing. Moreover, regardless of its psychological reasons, our purified Shariah law does not allow the Mukallaf to commit it, knowing that this stand is clearly mentioned in the Quran and the noble Sunnah, for Allah says: “And who guard their private parts, except before their mates or those whom their right hands possess, for they surely are not blamable but whoever seeks to go beyond that, these are they that exceed the limits.” (23:05-07). If the aware man looks into the matter, he will realize that Allah rendered the sexual relation a natural process that satiates both the man’s and the woman’s needs, instinctively and emotionally. Moreover, homosexual relations lead to dangerous health issues and diseases… it is interesting that it has been connoted in modern times as sexual “perversion”, which clearly denotes that it does not conform with man’s innate nature.
