Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. Islam talks about cleanliness. I am not circumcised, and I want to convert to Islam as soon as possible, at least before or right after Ramadan. I do not have the financial means to get the procedure done. Am I required to get circumcised before embracing Islam? Or am I supposed to do it at the time? I was told it is a very painful procedure. Please help me with this question. Jazakum Allah khayran.
As-Salamu `Alaykum. There is a widespread practice of 'female circumcision' among Muslims in many nations, though limited to some sections only. What does the Shari’ah say on this and what are the Prophet’s words regarding this?
Dear sheikh, As-Salamu `alaykum wa Rahmatullah. People differ regarding the issue of circumcision. Does the Qur’an mention anything about it? Please clarify this issue.
