Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

Lesbianism is forbidden and it is among the major sins. The Quran, Hadeeth and the consensus of Ummah declare that it is forbidden. Allah Says (what means): {And they who guard their private parts. Except from their wives or those their right hands possess, for indeed, they will not be blamed - But whoever seeks beyond that, then those are the transgressors.} [Quran 23:5-7]

The Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) said: “Sexual activities between women are just as adultery.” [At-Tabaraani and Abu Ya’la]

Imam Al-Haythami said in his book Majma' Az-Zawaa-id: “The narrators of this chain are trustworthy.As-Suyooti considered it as Hasan Hadeeth in his book Al-Jaami'.

All knowledgeable people are agreed that having sex with members of the same sex is forbidden. Furthermore, all intellectuals and good-natured people hate it and consider it as a repulsive and immoral act. Therefore, you should repent, regret what you did and should never repeat it again throughout your life.

As for your thinking of not marrying a man, it is nothing but a devilish insinuation. The devil wants to prevent you from what is lawful and push you to continue on committing what is forbidden.

Know that a woman and a man are made for each other and they feel satisfaction with each other. Thus, both of them together establish a Muslim home that is the basic element of the Muslim society.
