Abstract

Egyptologists’ discovery proves that the earliest practice of homosexuality was in 25th century BCE. The couple suggested to practice was Niankhkhnum and Khnumhotep. This statement discomposes Muslims who believe, on the basis of al-A’raf:80 and al-‘Ankabut:28, that people of Lot were the first one practicing homosexual. Because of that contradiction, I am interested to examine Muslims’ understanding on the two verses in question using stylistic method that covers phonology, morphology, semantic, syntax and imagery. This method will uncover Muslims understanding from very simple aspect (phonology) up to the most complex one (imagery). From the research I have finished, I can conclude several things as follow. From phonology, the nuances impressed by alif, lam, mim and nun, are shock, quake, confusion, fast movements, destroy, heat and vastness of place and time. From morphology; sabaqa gives an understanding that period of time negated by ma> is around the first time humankind existed on earth until the time of people of Lot; ta’tu>na shows that people of Lot would still perform their shameful tradition in way(s), and; fa>h}isyah shows everlasting impression of shameful and unforgiven for the action(s) of people of Lot mentioned in the Qur’an. From semantic aspect, we could see that the point asserted by the two verses is ‘Lot uttered to his people (tends to refer men than women) whether they would still maintain their shameful tradition which no one in this universe (it may refers to jin and na>s particularly or all creatures in general) preceded them in performing such tradition or not’. From syntax, we could say that iz} advocates uz}kur as the hidden word between wa and lu>t}an. ata’tu>na and innakum lata’tu>na were employed because they are appropriate and suitable to the main point each chapter carries on; fa>h}isyah mentioned in the verses refers only to actions of people of Lot; sabaqakum biha> is the most effective expression to assert the purpose, and; ma> min ah}ad min al-‘a>lami@n gives two possible understandings or interpretations which are preceding claim to them on performing homosexual or performing homosexual in massive scale. From imagery, we could extract that dialogue style functions to create situation Lot had faced in that particular time. The text also indicates that preceding claim to people of Lot, whether in massive or personal scale, is only hyperbole—though evidences needed to examine the hypothesis are not compiled yet. As the conclusion, we could see that: in mood of shocked and oppressed, audiences get a story about Lot uttering to his people (possibly refers only to men, not women) with intention to offend and prejudice that they would be bull headed and would continue practicing their shameful action ‘will ye still perform very shameful and unforgiven action which no one in the universe (only refers to jin and na>s or all creature in general) preceded ye in performing such action?’. With those insights, the findings of Egyptologist do not imply anything in relation to Quran. It is caused by the fact that there is another alternative interpretation advocated by several linguistic evidences that quite logical to say that preceding claim to people of Lot is only related to ‘performing homosexual’ and ‘in massive scale’. In other words, Quran opens the possibility of someone performing homosexual personally in period of people of Sodom on earth.
