Salamun Alaykum

Thank you for your query.

One of the best ways to get away from sins is to learn about the severity and punishment of that particular sin. I would recommend you and your friend to read book “The Greater sin” especially the 11th greater sin which is Sodomy from the following link

I am copying some of the content below, from the same book mentioned above “The Greater sins” to know and learn about the badness and severity of homosexuality.

The Holy Prophet (S) says:

“A person who commits sodomy with a boy will acquire such a Janabat (impurity) that even all the water of this world cannot remove it. Allah will be wrathful at him and curse him. (That is He will take away His Mercy from him and will award Hell for him.) What a dreadful place it is! Then the Heavens shudder of it. And the person who allows another to mount him from behind to commit sodomy, then Allah puts him on the fringe of Hell (in extreme heat) and keeps him there till He completes the reckoning of all the people. Then He orders him to be put into Hell. One by one he is made to suffer all the punishments of Hell till he reaches the lowest stage. Then he never comes out from there.”

Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) was queried by Abu Basir regarding the verse:

“So when our decree came to pass, we turned them upside down and rained down upon them stones, of what has been decreed, one after another.” (Surah Hūd 11:82)

Imam (a.s.) explained:

“There is no one who leaves this world while considering sodomy Halāl, but that Allah hits him with one of the stones that had fallen on the people of Hazrat Lut (a.s.).”

It is reported in Wasa’il ul-Shia that a person who believes sodomy to be Halāl and commits it several times and does not repent; at the time of his death Allah hits him with one of the stones that had rained upon the people of Lut (a.s.). His death is brought about by the impact of this stone, but people do not see it (the stone).

We should always ask Allah swt to help us refrain and stay away from such Haram actions which not only ruins ones’ life rather also doesn’t keep the Muslim as a proper Muslim. The more the disobedience of Allah swt is done, the further the person goes away from the mercies of the Almighty.

We must try to obey Allah swt and fulfill our Islamic responsibilities to get closer to Allah swt and gain His mercies. Without His mercies and blessings we can never attain success in this world and the Hereafter.

Read more about the Ahlul Baytt (as) and try to follow their footsteps in order to stay away from sins and keep yourself busy in good stuff where you don’t get time to indulge in Haram.
