Question

Was Baha’u’llah tolerant of homosexuality because He told Baha’is to have a “sin-covering eye”?

First Answer

Baha’u’llah called homosexuality HARAM (absolutely forbidden) for Baha’is.

Baha’u’llah called homosexuality HARAM (absolutely forbidden) for Baha’is. The term sin-covering eye referred to “minor sin” (sagirah). There is no exact Arabic word for “sin”. There is one for major sin(kabirah) and one for minor sin(sagirah).Baha’u’llah used the one for minor sins.
He considered LIWAT (male homosexual acts) and SIHAQ (female homosexual acts) to be among “satanic deeds”; another name for MAJOR sins. He likened LIWAT and SIHAQ to ZINA (adultery/fornication).
