Look out for Muhammad worshippers who will pop up to tell us its a “cultural thing”- Â and that many other religions and African tribes do it too…. nothing to do with Islam etc etc….
What does Islam (Holy Quran, Shariah, Hadith) say , if at all, about the female circumcision or FGM – Female Genital Mutilation? Is it permissible or not permissible?
Assalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullaahi Wa Barakaatuhu
1. Circumcision for males is Waajib (compulsory) according to Imaam Abu
Hanifa. If circumcision will hinder a person from accepting Islam then
accepting Islam should be given preference over circumcision.
2. It is Mustahabb (commendable) for females to circumcise. It is narrated
in an authentic Hadith quoted from Abu Dawood Shareef that during the
Prophet (Sallallaahu ?layhi Wasallam)’s time there was a woman in Madinah
who used to perform circumsicion for women (Fathul Bari vol. 16 p. 353)
and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
