In the name of Allah, the most gracious, the most merciful.
The first thing you need to know is that ALLAH the Exalted is the God of Jesus and his mother, Mary and all the prophets like Moses, Abraham, Jacob, David etc… Peace be upon them all, ALLAH the Merciful is loving, he will never punish an innocent soul or a soul that repents sincerely.
I am a Muslim transwoman.
You know in your mind that you are a woman regardless of the genitals because genitals don’t determine who you are, Never! If a man loses his genitals in an accident, is he considered a woman? Or is he considered a man? Think about it.
You know from the moment you can remember you knew you were normal, you knew you were a woman but the ignorance around us has shamed us into thinking we are abnormal, worthless, sick in the head and so on and on…
There are no punishment prescribed in the Qur’an nor the Hadiths (the latter I don’t believe in), many scholars have said that the nature of hadiths is very sensitive and many words are misinterpreted and makes many things haraam (Forbidden).
The Wonderful Qur’an recognizes that there are some people who are both male and female, whether physically, psychologically or both, there aren’t any specifications, so it applies to us as we are physically undoubtedly male and psychologically without question, female.
Verses 49 to 50 of the 42nd Chapter of the glorious Qur’an states ” To Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth; He creates what he wills. He gives to whom He wills female [children], and He gives to whom He wills males, Or He makes them [both] males and females, and He renders whom He wills barren. Indeed, He is Knowing and Competent.

The verses in fact describe varieties of gender and sexuality, ALLAH the Exalted, clearly says “He makes them BOTH male and female” the verse can refer to physical, psychological or both forms of ambiguity.
Verse 3 of the 13th Chapter of the noble Qur’an which refers to every kind of fruit being made in pairs and with the verses stated earlier from the 42nd chapter, we can conclude that there is gender ambiguity in plants as well. How? Because ALLAH the most wise creates whatever he wills. Science has proved that some plants are gender ambiguious and also some animals like the Dragon Lizard changes its gender depending on the temperature of its surrounding.
When the Noble Qur’an recognizes this and no hadith forbids anyone trying to match their bodies to the gender they identity with, who are we to judge.
Medical science itself has classified transsexuals as normal human beings with mismatched body parts.
It has been proven it is a genetic disorder and NOT a choice. [ more]
