Yusuf al-Qaradawi

“Muslim jurists have held differing opinions concerning the punishment for this abominable practice. Should it be the same as the punishment for fornication, or should both the active and passive participants be put to death? While such punishments may seem cruel, they have been suggested to maintain the purity of the Islamic society and to keep it clean of perverted elements.”“The Qaradawi Fatwas,” Middle East Quarterly, 2004, http://www.meforum.org/646/the-qaradawi-fatwas.
