Is it possible for a Muslim woman to feel attracted to the same sex, even if she does not prefer homosexuality? If a woman hates homosexuality and has no interest in it, still is it possible for her to find other women sexually attractive?
Thank you for your question. It is my firm belief that with the presence of toxins and hormones in our food and pollutants in the air, water, and earth that the health of a man is not what it used to be, making it possible to be attracted to the same gender.
Do Not Worry
In short, if you are worried about being attracted to other women, do not be. Stick to your obligations to your Lord, Most High, reduce your screen time dramatically, spend more time in nature in the fresh air, eat less junk and sugar, take your supplements. and surround yourself with religious positive people.
Pray to Allah that He helps you reconcile these feelings and makes it easy for you to subdue them. Express your pain through du’a, and ask Allah to help you, guide you, and give you the very best outcome. Allah is always there to listen and loves to be asked. Trust in Allah that if you take care of Him, he will take care of you, as we know from a Prophetic hadith.
The Prophet, Allah bless him and give him peace, said, “When half of the night or two-third of it is over. Allah, the Blessed and the Exalted, descends to the lowest heaven and says: ‘Is there any beggar so that he be given? Is there any supplicator so that he be answered? Is there any beggar of forgiveness so that he be forgiven? (And Allah continues it saying) till it is daybreak.'” [Muslim]
May Allah reward you for your sincerity and give you the best of this world and the next.
