Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
is it okay to have sex with sheeps and goats
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Sex with animals
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
It is absolutely prohibited in Islam for a human being to have sex with any animal! If one takes a look at the lower forms of life in the animal kingdom, one species of animal mates only within its own species…..never will one find that a horse is mating with a monkey, etc.! Even in the plant kingdom, one species of plant may only fertilize a plant of its own species! But there are some ignorant creations of the Merciful Lord, who tend to dishonor the position their Lord has bestowed upon them, and contemplate doing deeds which are alien to even the lower forms of life!
The people of Prophet Lot (a.s.) committed homosexuality, and deserved the punishment of total and absolute annihilation from their Creator; and the people who contemplate having sex with animals should fear the Wrath and Anger of their Creator, and know for sure that everyone will be gathered on an Inevitable Day in His Court, to give a full accounting of their deeds.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
