Just a reminder, since we are in Qawm Lut Pride month:
The biggest “Islamic” promoter of LGBT to the mainstream Muslim community continues to be Yaqeen Institute for “Islamic” Research.
In addition to their main paper pushing Muslims to support gay marriage and LGBTQ rights, they also have three papers published by an openly queer activist, Margarita Rosa.
And of course, their founder and the main face of Yaqeen, Omar Suleiman, is notorious for his continued allyship with pro-LGBT activists and his infamous quote:
“We are determined to cry together, to pray together, to stand together – straight, gay, Floridian and Texan.”
“Gay Muslims exist, and they are a part of our community. It depends on the mosque they are going to, whether the mosques are going to accept them or not. A lot of that has to do with how American those mosques are, how acclimated they are to the country they are in.”
Despite my invitation to Yaqeen in the past to explain these shocking things and discuss in an open forum, Yaqeen refuses to explain themselves, let alone take down the material and issue a correction and apology.
How many Muslims (and non-Muslims) have been led into LGBT acceptance and promotion, thinking that such is Islamically acceptable because of Yaqeen?
That question alone should haunt everyone associated with Yaqeen.
It’s a question that would haunt anyone concerned about their akhira.
Ironically, Yaqeen touts its “scholarly review board” as working to “defend and promote Islamic orthodoxy.” I guess they think that LGBT, gay marriage, and queer activists are all orthodox in Islam.
Allah’s refuge is sought!
