My aim in this article is to problematise the heteronormalised interlacings of citizenship, ethnicity, masculinity, ascendancy, morality, matrimony and religion among Malaysian Malay-Muslim men through queer analyses. The civil partnership of Malaysian Ariff Alfian Rosli caused considerable tumult among many Malay-Muslims in Malaysia, dislodging an entrenched image of heteronormative masculinity. I argue that Ariff’s resoluteness in faith has irrevocably fractured heteronormative familiarities and opened up new avenues for a reconsideration of Syariah legalities on sexuality for non-heteronormative Malaysian Malay-Muslim men.
