can gay offer prayers in mosque



My brother is a gay. He is really depressed. He tried to commit suicide. Should a gay person offer his prayers baajamaat in mosque with other men? I know Islam does not allow homosexual marriage but can a gay person marry a normal woman?

Please answer both of my questions. I shall be very grateful.


Waalaykum Salaam,

Yes he can offer prayers Ba-jama’at.
And Yes he can marry a normal woman.
