Abstract

Sexuality is a necessity that exists in human nature. And the best way to remove this necessity is to get married. Throughout the historical process there were people having sex without wedlock as well as there were people interested in their fellows, furthermore some of them even dared to have sex beyond being interested in their fellows. Islamic Law has taken some measures to avoid such sexual deviations. Among these measures, the most remarkable ones are corporal punishments that are envisioned for homosexuality and lesbianism. Even though there is no aggreement about the types of the punishments to be applied for homosexuals, it can be said to be a target collaboration. And that is to prevent the crime to be replicated and spread among the society. In the study, views of Jafari School were touched upon in addtion to Sunni views.
