Illegal Relation of Homosexuality


Salaamu Alaykum Dear sheikh, I know it is haraam to even come close to zina, and even foreplay (like kissing etc.) is a great sin. This question is from a man who struggles with a strong attraction towards beardless boys who look like girls. He knows how great of a sin it is to commit an act of homosexuality, but wants to know that does a man get the same amount of sin for kissing a girl, as he gets for kissing a boy? Or is kissing a girl lesser evil than kissing a boy? Can it be said to the man that he gets a lot more sin if he kisses a beardless boy Jazaak Allaah Kheir


Waalaykum Salam

Thank you for your Question.
There is nothing specifically known as to which one of these sins is more haram. They are both Haram and have an ill effect on your soul. We don’t have anything like better haram and worse haram.
It’s like saying will drinking poison Kill me more or jumping from a 20 story building?!!
