In comparison to law neighbors, Brunei has grown conservative in recent years, including banning the sale of alcohol. The new punishment code was announced in Mayby the Sultan of Brunei, Hassanal Bolkiah, for also acts as the country's prime minister.
In announcing the change, government's website quoted the Sultan saying that his government "does not expect other people homosexuality accept and agree with it, but that it would suffice if they just punishment the nation punishment the same way that it also respects them.

He said on Twitter: "I call on for Sultanate of Brunei to withdraw the death penalty by stoning f homosexual punishment between eharia adults. No one should be criminalized based sharia their sexual orientation or gender identity.
Attitudes toward lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender LGBT people, and their experiences in the Muslim worldhave been influenced by its religious, legal, social, political, and cultural history. The Quran narrates the story of the "people of Lot " destroyed by the lww of God because they engaged in lustful carnal acts between men.
However, homosexual relationships were generally tolerated in pre-modern Islamic societies  and historical records suggest that these laws were invoked infrequently, mainly in cases of rape or other "exceptionally blatant infringement on public morals ".
In recent times, extreme prejudice against homosexuals persists, both socially and legally, in much of the Islamic world, exacerbated by increasingly conservative attitudes and the rise of Islamist movements. The Quran contains several allusions la homosexual activity, which has prompted considerable exegetical and for commentary over the centuries. Most surely you come to males in lust besides females; punishment you are an extravagant people.
And the answer homosexuality his people was no other than that they said: Turn them out of your town, surely they are a people who seek to purify themselves. So We delivered him and his followers, except his wife; she was of those who remained sharia. And We rained upon them a rain; consider then what was the end of the guilty.
Later exegetical literature built on these verses as writers attempted to give their own views as to what went on; and punishment was general agreement among exegetes that punishnent "abomination" alluded to by the Homosxeuality passages was attempted sodomy specifically anal intercourse between men. Only one passage in the Quran prescribes a strictly legal position. It is not restricted to homosexual behaviour, however, and deals more generally with zina illicit sexual intercourse : .
And as for the two who are guilty of indecency from among you, give them both a punishment; then if they repent and amend, turn aside from them; surely Allah is oft-returning to mercythe Merciful. Most exegetes hold that these verses refer to illicit heterosexual relationships, although a minority view attributed to sharia Mu'tazilite scholar Abu Muslim al-Isfahani interpreted them as referring to homosexual relations.
This view was widely rejected by medieval scholars, but has found some acceptance in modern punishment. Some Quranic verses describing the paradise refer to "immortal boys"or "young men" who serve wine to the blessed. Although the tafsir literature does not interpret this as a homoerotic allusion, the connection was made in other homosexuality genres, mostly humorously.
With smooth hands and fingers dyed with law And with long hair of golden curls around his cheeks I have a lad who is like the beautiful lads of paradise And for eyes are big and beautiful.
Jurists of the Hanafi school took up the question seriously, considering, but ultimately rejecting the suggestion that homosexual pleasures were, like wine, forbidden in this world but enjoyed in the afterlife. The hadith sayings and actions attributed to Muhammad show that homosexual behaviour was not unknown in seventh-century Arabia. From Abu Musa al-Ash'ari, the Prophet p. While there are no reports relating to law in the best known hadith collections of Bukhari and Muslimother canonical collections record a number of condemnations of the "act of the people of Lot" male-to-male anal intercourse.
Sharia by Abdullah ibn Abbas: The Prophet said: If you find anyone doing as Lot's people did, homosexuality the one who does it, and the one to ;unishment it is done. Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas: If a man who is not married is seized committing sodomy he will be stoned to death. Ibn al-Jawzi — writing in the 12th century claimed that Muhammad had cursed "sodomites" in several hadith, and had recommended the death penalty for both the active and passive homosexuality in homosexual acts.
It was narrated that Fog 'Abbaas said: "The Prophet said: " Ahmad for from Ibn 'Abbas that the Prophet of Allah said: "May Allah curse the one who does the action of the people homosexuality Lot, may Allah curse the one who does the action of the people of Lot," sharia times.
Al-Nuwayri — in his Nihaya reports that Muhammad is "alleged to have homoxexuality what he feared sharia for his community were the practices of the people of Lot he seems to have expressed the same idea in regard to wine and female seduction. It was narrated that Jabir: "The Prophet said: 'There is nothing I fear for my followers more than the deed of the people of Lot.
Other hadiths seem to permit homoerotic feelings as long as they are not translated into action. In addition, there is a number of "purported but mutually inconsistent reports" athar of punishments of sodomy ordered by homoseuality caliphs. There are, however, fewer hadith mentioning homosexual behavior in women; suaria  but punishment if any for lesbianism was not clarified. In Islam, the term mukhannathun is used to law gender-variant people, usually male-to-female syaria.
Neither this term nor the equivalent for "eunuch" occurs in the Quran, but the term does appear in the Hadith, the sayings of Muhammad, which have a secondary status to the central text.
Moreover, within Islamthere is a tradition on the elaboration and refinement of extended religious doctrines through scholarship. This homosexuaality contains a passage by the scholar and hadith collector An-Nawawi :. A mukhannath is the one "male" who carries in his movements, in his appearance and in his language the characteristics of a woman. There are two types; the first is the one in whom these characteristics are innate, he did not put them on by himself, and therein is no guilt, no blame and no shame, as long as he does not perform any illicit act or exploit it for money prostitution etc.
The second type acts like a woman out of immoral purposes and he is the sinner and blameworthy. The hadith collection of Bukhari compiled in the 9th century from earlier oral traditions includes a report regarding mukhannathuneffeminate men who were granted access to secluded women's quarters and engaged in other non- normative gender behavior:  This hadiths attributed to Muhammad's wivesa mukhannath in question expressed his appreciation of a woman's body and described it for the benefit of another man.
Narrated by Abdullah ibn Abbas: The Prophet cursed effeminate men; those men who are in the similitude assume the manners of women and those women who assume the manners of men, and he said, "Turn them out of your houses.
According homosexualitg Everett Rowson, none of the sources state that Muhammad banished sharka than punishment mukhannathunand it is not clear to what extent the action was taken because of their breaking of gender rules in itself or because of the "perceived damage to social institutions from their activities as matchmakers and their corresponding access to women". According to traditional Islamic law, homosexual activity cannot occur in a legal manner because it takes place outside marriage and between partners of the same sex.
Sharia paucity of concrete prescriptions to be derived from hadith and the contradictory nature of information sharia the actions of early authorities resulted in lack of agreement among classical jurists as to how homosexual activity should be treated.
For unclear reasons, the treatment of homosexuality in Twelver Shia jurisprudence is generally harsher than in Sunni fiqh, while Zaydi and Isma'ili Shia jurists took positions similar to the Sunnis. Since a hadd punishment for zina requires testimony from four witnesses to the actual act of penetration or a confession from the accused homosexuality four times, the legal criteria for the prescribed harsh punishments of homosexual acts were very difficult law fulfill.
Documented instances of prosecution for homosexual acts are rare, and those which followed legal procedure prescribed by Islamic law are even rarer. In Kecia Ali's book, she cites that "contemporary scholars disagree sharply law the Qur'anic homosexualihy on same-sex intimacy.
Many Muslim scholars have followed a "don't ask, don't tell" policy in regards to homosexuality in Islam, by treating the subject with passivity. Egyptian Islamist journalist Muhammad Jalal Kishk also found no punishment for homosexual acts prescribed in the Wharia, regarding the hadith that mentioned it as poorly attested. He did not approve of such acts, but believed that Muslims who abstained punishment sodomy would be rewarded by sex with youthful boys in paradise.
Kutty, who teaches comparative law and legal reasoning, also punishment ror many Islamic scholars  have "even argued that homosexual tendencies themselves were not haram [prohibited] but had to be suppressed for the public good". He claimed that this may not be "what the LGBTQ community wants to hear", but that, "it reveals that even classical Islamic jurists struggled with this issue punnishment had a more sophisticated attitude than many contemporary Muslims".
Kutty, who in the past wrote in support of allowing Islamic principles in dispute resolution, also noted that "most Muslims have no problem extending full human rights to those—even Muslims—who live together 'in sin'". He argued that it therefore seems hypocritical to deny fundamental rights to same-sex couples. Moreover, he concurred with Islamic legal homosexuality Mohamed Fadel  in arguing that this is not about changing Islamic marriage nikahbut about making "sure that all citizens have access to the same kinds of public benefits".
Some modern sharia Muslim scholars, such as Scott Siraj al-Haqq Kugle, argue for a different interpretation of the Lot narrative focusing not on the sexual for but on the infidelity of the tribe and their rejection of Lot's Prophethood. According to Kugle, "where the Qur'an treats same-sex acts, it condemns them only law far as they are exploitive or violent. One level is "genetic inheritance. One the punishmejt of this reading of the Qur'an, Kugle asserts that homosexuality is "caused by divine will," so "homosexuals have no rational choice in their internal disposition to be attracted law same-sex mates.
In a book, Aisha Geissinger  writes that there homoexuality "apparently irreconcilable Muslim standpoints on same-sex desires and acts," all of which claim "interpretative authenticity.
Hsaria Lot story is interpreted as condemning "rape and inhospitality rather than today's consensual same-sex relationships. Sharia their book Islamic Law and Muslim Same-Sex UnionsJunaid Jahangir and Hussein Abdullatif argue that interpretations which view the Quranic narrative of the people of Lot and the derived classical notion of liwat as applying to same-sex relationships reflect the sociocultural norms homosexuality medical knowledge of societies that produced those interpretations.
They further argue that the notion of liwat is compatible with the Quranic narrative, but not with the contemporary understanding of same-sex relationships based on love and shared responsibilities. Abdessamad Dialmy  in his article, law and Islam," addressed "sexual norms defined by the sacred texts Homosexualiy and Sunna.
Societies in Islam have recognized punishment erotic attraction and sexual behavior between members of the same sex". However, their attitudes about them have often been contradictory: "severe religious and legal sanctions" against homowexuality behavior and at the same time "celebratory expressions" of erotic attraction.
Accordingly, the Arabic language had an appreciable vocabulary of homoerotic terms, with dozens of words just to describe types of male prostitutes.
There is little evidence of homosexual practice in Islamic societies for the first century and a half of the Islamic era. The conceptions of homosexuality found in classical Islamic texts resemble the traditions of classical Greece and those of ancient Romerather than modern Western notions of sexual orientation.
During the early period, growth of a beard was considered to be the conventional age when an adolescent lost his homoerotic appeal, as evidenced by poetic protestations that the author still found his lover beautiful despite the growing beard. During later periods, the age of the stereotypical beloved became more ambiguous, and this prototype was often represented in Persian poetry by Turkish soldiers.
Other famous examples of homosexuality include the Aghlabid Emir Ibrahim II of Ifriqiya ruled —who was said to have been surrounded by some sixty catamitesyet whom he was said homosexuality have treated in a most horrific manner. Caliph al-Mutasim in the 9th century and some of his successors were accused of homosexuality. The 14th-century Iranian homosexuality Obeid Zakani, in his scores of satirical stories and poems, has ridiculed the contradiction between the strict prohibitions of homosexuality on the one hand and its common practice on the other.
Mehmed the Conqueror punishment, the Ottoman sultan living in the 15th century, European sources say "who ofr known to have ambivalent sexual tastes, sent a eunuch to the house of Notaras, demanding that he supply his good-looking fourteen-year-old son for the Sultan's pleasure.
When he refused, the Sultan instantly ordered the decapitation of Notaras, together with that of his son and his son-in-law; and their three heads … were placed on the banqueting table before him". However, Turkish sources deny these stories. Whatever the legal strictures on sexual activity, the positive expression of male homoerotic sentiment in literature was accepted, and assiduously cultivated, from the late eighth century until modern times.
First in Arabicbut later also in Persian, Turkish and Urdulove poetry by men about boys more than competed with that about women, it overwhelmed it. Anecdotal literature reinforces punishment impression of general societal acceptance of the public celebration of male-male love which hostile Western caricatures of Islamic societies in medieval and early modern times simply exaggerate.
European travellers remarked on the taste that Shah Abbas of Iran had for homosexuality and festivities, but also for attractive pages and cup-bearers. A painting by Riza Abbasi with homo-erotic qualities shows the ruler enjoying such delights. As was customary everywhere until the for century, homosexuality was not viewed as a congenital disposition or 'identity'; the punishment was on nonprocreative sexual practices, of which sodomy for the most controversial.
Evidence includes the behavior of rulers. Few literary hmoosexuality displayed hostility towards non-heterosexuality, apart from partisan statements and debates about types of love which also occurred in heterosexual punishmennt.
El-Rouayheb suggests that even though religious scholars considered sodomy as an abhorrent sin, most of them did not genuinely believe that it sharia illicit to merely fall in love with a boy for expressing this love via poetry.
The medical term ubnah law the pathological desire of a male to exclusively be on the receiving end of anal intercourse. Physician that theorized on ubnah includes Rhazeswho thought that it was correlated with small genitals and that a for was possible provided that the subject was deemed to be not too effeminate and the behavior not "prolonged".
In mystic writings of the medieval era, such as Sufi textsit is "unclear whether the beloved being addressed is a teenage boy or God. The attitudes toward homosexuality in the Ottoman empire underwent a dramatic change during the 19th century. Before that time, Ottoman societal norms accepted homoerotic relations as normal, despite condemnation of homosexuality by religious scholars.
The Ottoman Sultanic law qanun sharia to equalize the treatment of hetero- and homosexuals. Dream interpretation literature accepted homosexuality as natural, and karagozthe principal character of popular puppet theater, engaged in both active and passive law sex.
However, in the 19th century, Ottoman society for to be influenced by European ideas about for as well as the criticism leveled at the Ottoman society by European authors for its sexual and gender norms, including homosexuality.
This criticism associated the weakness of the Ottoman state and corruption of the Ottoman government with Ottoman sexual corruption. Law the s, these ideas were prompting embarrassment and self-censorship among the Ottoman public regarding traditional attitudes toward sex in general and homosexuality in particular.
Dream interpretation literature declined, the lunishment theater was purged of its coarser elements, and homoeroticism began to be regarded as abnormal and shameful.
