  • Circumcision

    Assalamu 'Alaikum wa RaHmatullahi wa Barakatihuh So on another forum I was debating with some non-Muslims over the merits of circumcision. Obviously, I was giving the Islamic perspective on it, but I came across something that is confusing me. According to aHadith, Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) said that circumcision is one of the acts of fitra, and many Islamic scholars have stated that circumcision is compulsory for males and optional for females: https://sunnah.com/urn/2212080 https://sunnah.com/muslim/2/65 https://sunnah.com/bukhari/77/106 https://sunnah.com/bukhari/79/71 https://sunnah.com/bukhari/60/36 http://legacy.quran.com/30/30 http://legacy.quran.com/4/119 So what's up? Is circumcision against the Holy Qur'an, or is circumcision the exception to the rule? What I think is that is might not be, because the Holy Qur'an is over the aHadith. But I may be wrong. Jazakallah Khair for any helpful responses. If you are going to be rude, please don't post at all. Shukran.

    Alaikum wasalam ar-rahmantullah barrakatu

    There are several exceptions to the rule.

    There should be no change in the creation of Allah swt (as per Quran)EXCEPT what is legislated(as per sunnah/ahadith) so finger nails,moustache,pubic hair,circumcision are all legislated ie Wajib.

    The first part is a general rule and the second is specific exemptions to the first part

    So you must NOT touch the beard but MUST trim the moustache.

    circumcision is legislated in the torah/taurat for jews as well and the same version is given as in the hadith you linked,that Ibrahim as used an adze at the age of 80,so it's one part of the taurat that wasn't changed.

        Your cutting off a piece of your body which you are not allowed to do in general.
