Ask an Alim

Homosexual Orientation


My wife is always passive during intimate moments , on asking she replied that she has homosexual orientation. She never has the urge to be intimate with me but she says she loves me. I feel very dejected.

What should I do according to sharia and sunny.


Salamun Alaykum

The orientation itself is not haram but acting on it is a grave sin. You
must talk it through with her to see what she means exactly.

Being dejected is a negative and fruitless emotion in the long run – since
there is love in the marriage please try to work together to understand
and come to terms with the situation.
