What does it mean to do liwat?
What does it mean to do liwat?
Concise answer

Liwat takes place when the glans is inserted into the anus of another man[1]; this sin is one of the greatest sins which the Quran introduces as the sin the people of Prophet Lut (pbuh) that brought about their punishment and annihilation from God.[2] In some hadith, this sin has been seen as kufr to Allah.[3] Great penalties and punishments have been specified for this sin, one being execution in a special manner.[4] At the same time though, clearly, Allah (swt) accepts one’s sincere repentance, but it should always be remembered that there are some inevitable outcomes when it comes to this sin (such as the ruling that states that one can never get married to the daughter, sister nor mother of the person one has committed liwat with); outcomes that will not be lifted even if one truly repents and is forgiven for the sin.[5]
