Homosexualty act ( either between lesbian women or between homosexual men) is an obscenity in Judaism , Christanity & Islam & other religions . Sheikh Muhammad Abduh (1849-1905) Head of Islamic verdict body in Egypt & most Islamic countries in his time talked about this issue saying :

Homosexual  full intercourse sexual act  if fully proven &  witnessed to be fully done in public is punishable to death in Bible & Torah but NOT in Quran which ordered  that lesbians muslim women who brazenly & fully perpetrate this sex act in public are  to be confined to homes until they die or get married or quit this  reprehensible habit with the help of God or GOD makes a way out for them & that homosexual muslim men who commit this full sex act in public to be harassed by any punishment or corrective action deemed just & adequate to help  them repent & correct themselves & NO killing at all or any other capital punishment to them 

ALLAH says in Quran


وَاللَّاتِي يَأْتِينَ الْفَاحِشَةَ مِن نِّسَائِكُمْ فَاسْتَشْهِدُوا عَلَيْهِنَّ أَرْبَعَةً مِّنكُمْ ۖ فَإِن شَهِدُوا فَأَمْسِكُوهُنَّ فِي الْبُيُوتِ حَتَّىٰ يَتَوَفَّاهُنَّ الْمَوْتُ أَوْ يَجْعَلَ اللَّـهُ لَهُنَّ سَبِيلًا ﴿١٥ وَاللَّذَانِ يَأْتِيَانِهَا مِنكُمْ فَآذُوهُمَا ۖ فَإِن تَابَا وَأَصْلَحَا فَأَعْرِضُوا عَنْهُمَا ۗ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ كَانَ تَوَّابًا رَّحِيمًا

translation ” And those women who commit  sexual obscenity between them – bring against them four [witnesses] from among you. And if they testify, confine those women to houses until death takes them or Allah ordains for them [another] way. And the two men who commit it among you, harm/harass them both. But if they repent and correct themselves, leave them alone. Indeed, Allah is ever Accepting of repentance and Merciful”

The first verse is  about lesbians (homosexuality among womenand  the second verse is about sodomy (male homosexuality ) The proof that the first verse is about female homosexuality is that ALLAH has used the female plural pronoun (Al lati) denoting female plural & the female pronoun (Alaihon) which also denotes female plural .     The second verse relates to male homosexuality & the proof is that ALLAH has used the male pair pronoun (Al lazan)

ALLAH has stipulated four witnesses to testify that they have seen & witnessed the full sexual act before any punishment is implemented & this is to protect people honors & to assure that the obscenity has been done. Also note that this judjment & punishment relates only to muslim women not to non muslims who are not forced to abide by muslim sharia laws

And the wisdom of  holding the lesbians is that lesbians loath & hate  men affection or intimacy & these lesbians who commit the full  homosexual act in public can influence other women & spoil  family life  of other women & spread this obscenity thus causing a a negative impact on birth because lesbians usually do not marry & do not have children & to avoid this social harm they are  sentenced to be confined to homes until they die or get married or quit this  reprehensible habit with the help of God or GOD makes a way out to them

Also Male homosexuality punishment as per Quran is also only applicable when the full homosexual act is done & witnessed by four witnesses in public & there is no killing for this act & Islam did not determine a specific punishment on that but the punishment is to be any punishment deemed just & adequate to help straighten them & prevent them from repeating this act & behavior . Quran states in 4;16

“وَاللَّذَانِ يَأْتِيَانِهَا مِنكُمْ فَآذُوهُمَا ۖ فَإِن تَابَا وَأَصْلَحَا فَأَعْرِضُوا عَنْهُمَا ۗ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ كَانَ تَوَّابًا رَّحِيمًا”

translation is “And the two men who commit it among you, harm/harass them both. But if they repent and correct themselves, leave them alone. Indeed, Allah is ever Accepting of repentance and Merciful”—-

ALLAH has also greatly condemned sodomy in other Quran verse where HE  stated

Quran 7;81

وَلُوطًا إِذْ قَالَ لِقَوْمِهِ أَتَأْتُونَ الْفَاحِشَةَ مَا سَبَقَكُم بِهَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ مِّنَ الْعَالَمِينَ ﴿٨٠﴾ إِنَّكُمْ لَتَأْتُونَ الرِّجَالَ شَهْوَةً مِّن دُونِ النِّسَاءِ ۚ بَلْ أَنتُمْ قَوْمٌ مُّسْرِفُونَ

translation “And [We had sent] Lot when he said to his people, “Do you commit such obscenity as no one has preceded you with from among the worlds? Indeed, you approach men with desire, instead of women. Rather, you are a transgressing people.”
