As Muslims, How Should We Deal With LGBT People?

As Muslims, how should we deal with LGBT people?

Islam teaches us to be kind to everyone. Even if you are against someone’s lifestyles or beliefs, you should treat everyone with kindness and compassion. Remember that in the Quran it says, “Everyone’s God-given human dignity must be respected, regardless of his or her faith, race, ethnic origin, gender, or social status.” [Quran 17:70] Because everyone is created by God Almighty, the Maker of all, humans must treat one another with full honor, respect, and loving-kindness. May Allah (swt) guide us all.

I’ve always treated everyone kindly no matter what gender or gender they identify as. It’s really not my life or my business to cast out anyone. We are all human, created by Allah.

Assalamu ‘alaikum, which verse are you referring to as 17:70? Can you give me the original Arabic verse, as I can’t seem to find it in the mushaf. I found the following verse in chapter 17 verse 70 where Allah swt says:

“{ ۞وَلَقَدۡ كَرَّمۡنَا بَنِيٓ ءَادَمَ وَحَمَلۡنَٰهُمۡ فِي ٱلۡبَرِّ وَٱلۡبَحۡرِ وَرَزَقۡنَٰهُم مِّنَ ٱلطَّيِّبَٰتِ وَفَضَّلۡنَٰهُمۡ عَلَىٰ كَثِيرٖ مِّمَّنۡ خَلَقۡنَا تَفۡضِيلٗا }
[Surah Al-Isrāʾ: 70]

Sahih International:
And We have certainly honored the children of Adam and carried them on the land and sea and provided for them of the good things and preferred them over much of what We have created, with [definite] preference.”

Thanks for clarifying ! 🙂

I’m not sure, but I think this is kind of a progressive-islam, they are trying to make a new Islam.. May Allah give everyone what they deserve.
