This confusion should go down well: Former soldier becomes Britain’s first transgender Muslim convert – and is married

Wonder what Lucy feels about Mohammed’s Sharia laws onto homosexuals [ref Religion of Peace]:

The Hadith:

Abu Dawud (4462)The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Whoever you find doing the action of the people of Loot, execute the one who does it and the one to whom it is done.”.

Abu Dawud (4448) – “If a man who is not married is seized committing sodomy, he will be stoned to death.”  (Note the implicit approval of sodomizing one’s wife).

Bukhari (72:774) – “The Prophet cursed effeminate men (those men who are in the similitude (assume the manners of women) and those women who assume the manners of men, and he said, ‘Turn them out of your houses .’ The Prophet turned out such-and-such man, and ‘Umar turned out such-and-such woman.”

al-Tirmidhi, Sunan 1:152 – [Muhammad said] “Whoever is found conducting himself in the manner of the people of Lot, kill the doer and the receiver.” 

Reliance of the Traveller, p17.2 “May Allah curse him who does what Lot’s people did.”  This is also repeated in three other places.

Additional Notes:

Ayatollah Abdollah Javadi-Amoli of Iran said, in April of 2012, that homosexuals are inferior to dogs and pigs, since these animals (presumably) do not engage in such acts. In November of that year, a cleric on British television stated, “What should be done to those who practice homosexuality? Torture them; punish them; beat them and give them mental torture.

(As a side note, in 2012, a cleric issues a fatwa endorsing sodomy as a means of widening the anus in order to pack it with enough explosives to kill bystanders in a suicide bombing.  As Sheikh Abu al-Dema al-Qasab put it, “Jihad comes first, for it is the pinnacle of Islam, and if the pinnacle of Islam can only be achieved through sodomy, then there is no wrong in it.”

New life: Lucy Vallender 28, was formerly a male TA soldier but has had a sex changed and converted to IslamNew life: Lucy Vallender 28, was formerly a male TA soldier, pictured clutching her beret, but she has since had a sex change and converted to Islam

A former trained soldier has swapped her Territorial Army beret for a veil and become Britain’s first transgender Muslim woman.

Lucy Vallender used to be called Laurens and says she is finally ‘true to herself’ after a sex change three years ago.

The 28-year-old is now married to another Muslim man she met on an online dating site, but he did not know she was once a man when they wed.

She now wears a full veil outside her Swindon home to show the world she is married.

The former labourer said ‘she used to love firing guns’ and claims she drank regularly with the other squaddies as a TA private, but Lucy knew at 14 she wanted to become a woman.

‘I tried to do macho things you know to stop how I was thinking, but it didn’t work because I was trying to be someone I wasn’t,’ she said.

‘I felt differently to others – I was attracted to men.

‘But I suppressed my feelings and tried to live like most people my age.

‘I’d go out clubbing with friends and drink a lot of alcohol.

‘I had girlfriends too, but it would never get physical and always fizzled out after a couple of months.

‘Joining the TA was my final attempt at trying to fit in to that kind of life but I couldn’t handle it anymore and left after about a year.

‘I felt like I was in the wrong body. To carry on living as a male was living a lie.’

After quitting the TA the 28-year-old started dressing as a woman and had relationships with men.

She also grew her hair and had hormone therapy before her life-changing operation.

Lucy moved from her family home in Cirencester and plucked up the courage to see her doctor in about becoming a woman.

Miss Vallender told her GP she was ‘in the wrong body’ and three years ago had her sex change.

‘I was so nervous and at first I could hardly form the words, but I told him I wanted to be a woman and he said ‘ok’ – that was that,’ she said.

She then went back to work as a Ministry of Defence kitchen porter.

In another major life change, she then converted to Islam because it promoted peace last September.

Sweet: Lucy as baby Laurens, and she says her family took it hard when she said she wanted to be a womanSweet: Lucy as baby Laurens, and she says her family took it hard when she said she wanted to be a woman

‘I had thought about it for a while but it is such a taboo I thought,’ she said.

‘But I did it because it is a nice religion – so peaceful.

‘I felt good and I had something to believe in.

‘I felt happy and relieved at last – the happiest I’ve ever felt in my life.’

Her conversion to Islam followed last Autumn and then she married Murad at a small ceremony at his home in London.

‘I love him, he’s kind and soft spoken,’ she said.

‘I’ve seen him twice since the wedding . When I do we have sex.

‘I didn’t tell him I was transsexual but he must have suspected it as he he’s seen my scars.’

But she has run into trouble with her local mosque in Swindon, Wiltshire, as they would not let her pray with the other women.

Miss Vallender says she has been victimised by worhippers, who she says have asked her personal, and banned her because she is a transexual, and she wants to ‘get justice’ for transgender and Muslim people.

‘They say I am the first transgender Muslim but I bet there are more – they are just frightened,’ she said.

‘The way they treated me was disgusting.

‘They asked me questions about my bra cup size, asked about my Adam’s apple, about my period and asked to see my birth certificate.

‘They said I had to pray with the men so I left and pray at home instead.

‘I hope people will change their attitudes and other people like me will realise they are free to just be themselves.’

Lucy says she signed up to the TA arm of the Royal Gloucestershire, Berkshire and Wiltshire Regiment in 2006 at the age of 21 to try and make himself more manly.

But it only made her more depressed.

‘I always felt different and felt like I was in the wrong body.

‘I told my mum and she was shocked to say the least.

‘It just was not the done thing so I just put it to the back of my head and try and forget about it.’

A spokesman for Swindon Mosque said: ‘Everybody is welcome, as long as they behave according to Islam.’

  1. Islam allows sex change operations in exceptional circumstances.
    After the change she must be accepted as female. It would be haram (forbidden) to make her pray with men. The mosque behavior is unIslamic.

    1. Only when they themselves can molest them. You refer to ONE doctor in Iran, foreign educated, who has made it his career to try and change/improve transgender and gay situations in his home country. That helpcenter is not a reflection of the brutality they undergo in the country as a whole. If you disagree I challenge you to go and live in Iran.

  2. Gay is not permissible in Islam, and I agree with you brother. But Jihad being at the forefront of Islam – hell no. I am a muslim but I would happily with a smile on my face kill a terrorist who is planning to cause harm to anyone, believers/non-believers alike.
    Terrorist/ suicide bombers are as bad a sodomites and so then should be stoned to death along with them.

  3. Your post contains a number of errors. These are the most damaging:

    Firstly, transgender is not the same as homosexual. One refers to gender identity, the other to sexual orientation. If this person is now an woman and living with a man, this is not homosexuality. Incidentally, it is extremely rude to discuss what other people may or may not do in the privacy of their own bedrooms.

    Secondly, homosexual behaviour has been reliably observed in hundreds of other species, including – yes – dogs (and probably pigs, since they also do it for fun).

    1. Transgender is a homosexual in women’s clothing and they are deemed gay in Islam (except in Iran with some exceptions).

      And how does your statement change ANYTHING by the way they are executed under Islam’s Sharia law?
