Hadith #8

أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ عَلِیِّ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ أَبِی حُذَیْفَهَ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: لَعَنَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص الْمُتَشَبِّهِینَ مِنَ الرِّجَالِ بِالنِّسَاءِ وَ الْمُتَشَبِّهَاتِ مِنَ النِّسَاءِ بِالرِّجَالِ وَ هُمُ الْمُخَنَّثُونَ وَ اللَّاتِی یَنْکِحُ بَعْضُهُمْ بَعْضاً وَ إِنَّمَا أَهْلَکَ اللَّهُ قَوْمَ لُوطٍ حِینَ عَمِلَ النِّسَاءُ بِمِثْلِ عَمَلِ الرِّجَالِ وَ رَأَی بَعْضُهُمْ بَعْضاً.

8. My father (rah) said: it was narrated to me by Sa’d b. Abdillah from Ahmad b. Abi Abdillah from Ali b. Abdillah from Abdulrahman b. Muhammad from Abi Hudhayfa from Abi Abdillah (a.s.) who said: Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) said that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) has cursed those men who dress up as women and those women who dress up as men. These are same people who are involved in homosexual relations. Surely the women of the community of Prophet Lut (a.s.) was also involved in homosexual relations when chastisement befell the community.
