What is the level of authenticity of this Hadith?
Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“If a homosexual takes a bath in the oceans of the world, on the day of Qiyamah he will still be impure”
Imam Daylami (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration. However, ‘Allamah Sakhawi (rahimahullah) and other Muhaddithun have declared this Hadith a fabrication.
(Refer: Al Maqasidul Hasanah, Hadith: 887 and Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 2 pg. 220)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
