I received this informative article by email.Concerning the Prohibition of Lesbianism
It was narrated by Waathilah ibn al-Asqa’ as well as by Anas ibn Maalik (may Allah be pleased with them both) that they said that the Messenger of Allah (sall'Allahu alayhi wasalam) said: "This wordly life will not depart until men begin to find sexual satisfaction with men and women with women. And as-Sihaaq (Lesbianism) is illegal sexual intercourse between the women."
[Majma’ az-Zawaaid (256/6) from the narration of at-Tabaraanee and Aboo Ya’laa.]
And al-Aajuree said, “We were informed by Ahmad ibn al-Hasan with a chain of transmission that reaches Waathilah ibn al-Asqa’ that the Messenger of Allah (sall'Allahu alayhi wasalam) said: "Lesbianism is illegal sexual intercourse between the women."
[Related by at-Tabaraanee from Waathilah as in al-Maqaasid al-Hasanah (556) and al-‘Ajloonee said in Kashf al-Khufaa’a (1467/1)
it was related by at-Tabaraanee and Ibn Maajah from Waathilah all the way to the Prophet (sall'Allahu alayhi wasalam). And it is related in al-Jaami’ as-Sagheer with the title “Lesbianism between the Women is illegal sexual intercourse between them”.
And we were informed by ‘Umar bin Hudbah as-Sawaaf with a chain of transmission connected to Zur bin Hubaysh from Abu ibn Ka’b who said, “We were informed of many things that would occur amongst this Ummah (the Islamic nation) that would signify the coming of the final hour. From those things is men having anal sex with their wives or female servants. This is what Allah and His Messenger prohibited and it is what Allah detests as well as His Messenger. There is no prayer that they make that will be accepted until they sincerely repent to Allah.”
Ibn ‘Aqeel said, “When the Muslim women are observed loving Lesbianism then they should be prevented from being alone with one another. Lesbianism is illegal sexual intercourse but there is no obligation in performing the Islamic punishment for it rather they should be boycotted and reprimanded. That is because their act does not contain any actual intercourse so it is considered like the man who has anal intercourse (with a woman) without going into her vagina.”
