  1. Progressive Muslim around the world support the right of LGBT, we are all sinner, do not judge others.

    I want to know that where Ahmadiyyah stand for LGBT?

    Please let us know, thank you.

Let the LGBT use another term. If you like my suggestion: Instead of ‘MarriAGE’ what about ‘SodomAGE’? LGBT people in our mosques? Of course, they are all welcome and I know some are regulars there, but there is no need to put a LGBT label on their forehead. They are equal worshippers to all others, what each one of us does in our bedrooms is between us and Allah.
