Answered by Mawlana Ilyas Patel
I am a boy who kissed another boy and hugged him naked but did not have anal intercourse. Is there a punishment for homosexuality for me?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful and Compassionate.
I pray you are in good faith and health. Thank you for your question.
There is no punishment, just seek sincere forgiveness and repent truly to Allah Most High.
It was narrated from Anas (Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “Every son of Adam commits sin, and the best of those who commit sin are those who repent.’” [Ibn Majah]
