  • Female genital mutilation,Haram---Female circumcision,Halal

    Young girls born in Europe to immigrant families from Africa are being subjected to ritual genital mutilation, and authorities are doing little to discourage it, a leading women’s rights activist warned.

    Somalia-born supermodel and best-selling author Waris Dirie, who has campaigned to end the disfiguring practice she suffered at age five in her homeland, said yesterday that she estimates one in every three African families living in Europe is secretly carrying out the ritual on their daughters. No official figures exist.

    The procedure – illegal in most European countries – is especially prevalent in Germany and the Netherlands, as well as in Austria, where an estimated 8,000 girls born into immigrant families have been affected, Dirie said.

    “We don’t know who’s doing it and where,” because there are few initiatives to prevent it or to encourage doctors, nurses, social workers, teachers and others to report suspected cases, Dirie said. An exception is France, where there is strong awareness and education, she said.

    “What good is a law if no one is paying attention?” Dirie told reporters in Austria, where she was being honoured yesterday by a Roman Catholic men’s movement for her efforts to stop the practice.

    Islamic religious leaders are telling Europe’s Muslim Africans that the prophets recommend the ancient ritual, which involves the removal of the ****oris, often with a dull blade and no anaesthesia, Dirie said.

    “That is a catastrophe,” she said. “Every imam who is not actively against genital mutilation is guilty. Mutilation is not a tradition – it’s a crime that must be abolished.”

    Although women generally perform the procedure, sometimes called female circumcision, men are ultimately responsible because “untrimmed” young women “face great difficulties in African societies in finding a husband,” Dirie said.

    Between 100 million and 140 million women have undergone genital mutilation worldwide, and two million girls are at risk each year, according to the World Health Organisation, which says the practice can lead to infection, the spread of Aids and crippling physical, psychological and sexual problems.

    The practice has been on the rise not only among immigrants in Europe but also in Australia, Canada and the US, Who says.

    Petra Bayr, an official with Austria’s Socialist Party, said the bloc’s women would press the government to consider genital mutilation an “act of violence” and legitimate grounds for women fleeing it to be granted asylum in Austria.

    “Women who are threatened with genital mutilation or have already suffered it should not have to wait for months for an open door,” added Raimund Loeffelmann, a spokesman for the Catholic men’s organisation honouring Dirie yesterday.

    Horrible disgusting practice that no girl should have to endure. WHO considers female circumcision the same as FGM, that is all cutting, scraping, partial or total removal of female genitalia is FGM. It has zero benefits and is only performed to reduce a woman's right to enjoy intimacy.
    We don't care if WHO considers Hoodectomy as FGM or some other nonsense,

    We don't lessons in Morality from Dirty Kuffar who are screwed up on multiple levels.

    I wonder when people will get around to stamping out the equally disgusting practice of male genital mutilation?

    People who sexually abuse children are less than pig manure.
    Circumcision has medical benefits in addition to religious ones, seems like we have some clowns who ranting of using genital mutilation willy nilly.

    Ignorance is bliss, so the Kuffar say.

    THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FEMALE CIRCUMCISION AND FGM. (FGM includes the removal of the ****oris - Female circumcision removes the hood)

    and finally my opinion: There MUST MUST MUST be male scholars condemning the practice of FGM. ALL logic dictates that it is Haram. IT IS MUTILATION. It is changing the anatomy of a woman. HOW CAN TATTOOS BE DECLARED HARAM AND NOT FGM!!!????!!!)

    Please muslim brothers this is not an attack on Islam.

    This is the case of silence being betrayal.

    Why oh why can we not have men on this board just simply come on and state that FGM is a disgusting practice?!!! what is wrong with you people?!!! can't you just come on here and say at the very least: "FGM is not female circumcision, it is beyond that and hence it is VERY wrong and disgusting. it is a backward, uneducated practice and we must help people who practice it. ALso Female circumcison is NOT REQUIRED in Islam!!!"

    WHY OH WHY must you almost defend the subject with your silence and your diversions?!!!!!

    what is wrong with you????!!!

    Please brothers don't leave your muslims women to fight this alone when you know your opinions are important!

    Also female circumcision has nothing to do with the prevention of vaginal diseases. I am sorry to say you have been mislead if you have been told this.

    PLEASE brothers i BEG you to make a stand for once on this topic insteda of turning a blind eye or discussing female or male circumcision. I can give you details of what is done to these womens genitals but the topic is not appropriate.

    PLEASE BROTHERS, just say the right thing and stand for what is right. do not get defensive on unrelated issues. PLEASE!
    I totally agree with this post. I am a Muslim from Algeria and Alhamdu lillah, as far as I know FGM and Female circumcision are not practiced in Algeria and the Maghreb (North Africa) Except in Egypt which is estimated at 92% of all females have gone through some sort of female circumcision or mutilation. It has to be clarified though what's the difference between the 2. Male cicumcision is removing the extra skin that covers the top of the male genital (penis). It's NOT a genital mutilation as you're not removing any organ part of the genitals. Just uncovering it. This practice has been recommended by International Health Organization as an effective means to prevent aids by up to 70%, and other STD's. It's even introduced in western developed countries as a medical recommendation for the general community to prevent STDs. In Islam and Judaism this is an obligatory command from God to Abraham and his descendants and a faith tradition since then. Female circumcision is similarly uncovering the clitoris by removing the foreskin that covers the tip of it. This will relatively reduce the sensitivity of the clit but it doesn't eradicate it. Just as with the male circumcision. This practice is NOT a tradition in Islam, or Judaism and from my limited knowledge there is no authentic Hadith or prophetic tradition that recommends it. However it still isn't a female mutilation in my view. As long as the labia minora is not cut or stitched. If so it becomes a female mutilation because the labia minora has a vital role in the health of female genitals. There are different degrees of female genital mutilation and one of the worst in my opinion is when part or all of the clitoris is removed. In my opinion this is an inhumain Haram practice in Islam. Not only they are changing the creation of Allah but condemning women from experiencing the Allah given pleasure of sex (or some part of it) for the rest of their lives. Without a doubt this is a crime in the sight of Allah. If Tattoos are Haram, this is a lot worse. The excuse that this will prevent young unmarried girls from committing fornication is just as rediculous as the FGM itself. Because girls in Algeria are not circumcised and 99.9% of Algerian girls stay virgins till marriage even many of them to their 40's are still virgins and they don't play around. Some Muslim brothers don't like when this subject of FGM is brought up, or called FGM instead of Female circumcision. I agree they are 2 different things altogether but, we have to admit that FGM is just as practiced as female circumcision in Egypt and other Muslim communities. Not only Muslim communities but we as Muslims have to care for our Muslim sisters and stand up for what is right and denounce the wrong when it happens. And yes it is happening and it has to stop. It's an African cultural heritage that has nothing to do with Islam. and FGM is definitely Haram in my opinion.

    vaginal circumcision is vaginal circumscison
    Abumubarak does have a point here. It seems that male circumcision does not get any critical reactions like female circumcision do.( Or worse, misunderstood like being fgm ) And today it's not unnormal to have a surgery done by other reasons than medical, in Europe! If I had been 18 today I would definately concider for my own sake.

    Question:
    What is the most preferred view on female circumcision? Did Prophet Muhammad ﷺ allow it for females and why? جزاك الله جيرا
    Answer:
    بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

    Female Circumcision in Islam

    The Prophet ﷺ said:
    خَمْسٌ مِنَ الْفِطْرَةِ: الْخِتَانُ، وَالِاسْتِحْدَادُ، وَتَقْلِيمُ الْأَظْفَارِ، وَنَتْفُ الْإِبْطِ، وَقَصُّ الشَّارِبِ
    Five things are connected to the Fitrah: Circumcision, Shaving the pubic hairs, Clipping the nails, Plucking the armpit hairs and Trimming the moustache.
    The term Fitrah refers to the inherent and natural qualities and ways of a human-being.[1] The laws of the Shariah are equally applicable to men and women ( [2]النساء شقائق الرجال), except where there is clear proof stating that women are exempted. The acts of Fitrah mentioned in the Hadith are general and relates to both male and female. Furthermore, there are no evidences indicating that circumcision is restricted to males only.
    In fact, female circumcision was the norm and custom of Arab women and was also endorsed by the Prophet ﷺ. Consider the following Ahadith of the Prophet ﷺ;
    إِذَا جَاوَزَ الْخِتَانُ الْخِتَانَ وَجَبَ الْغُسْلُ ‏ (الترمذي)
    When the circumcised meets the circumcised then Ghusl is required.”
    إِذَا جَلَسَ بَيْنَ شُعَبِهَا الأَرْبَعِ وَمَسَّ الْخِتَانُ الْخِتَانَ فَقَدْ وَجَبَ الْغُسْلُ (مسلم)
    When a man sits amidst her four parts (arms and legs of his wife) and the circumcised parts touch each other a bath becomes obligatory.
    Imam at-Tahtaawi, in his Hashiya Ala Maraqil Falah commenting on the Hadith narrated by Imam at-Tirmidhi sates that female circumcision was the custom of Arab women.[3]
    Imam Badruddin al Ayni in his Umdatul Qaari and al-Binayah also confirms that female circumcision was the custom of Arab women.[4]
    It is narrated in numerous books of Ahadith that a Sahabiyah by the name of Umm Atiyyah (r.a) used to circumcise females at the time of the Prophet ﷺ. The Prophet ﷺ said her regarding her profession;
    لا تنهكي فإن ذلك أحظى للمرأة وأحب إلى البعل (أبو داود)
    Don’t cut too much, for that will be more pleasing to the woman and more desirable to the husband
    In another Hadith it is reported that the Prophet said to Umm Atiyya (r.a)
    فقال لها رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: “يا أم عطية: اخفضي ولا تُنهِكيِ، فإنه أنضر للوجه، وأحظى عند الزوج
    Oh Umm Atiya! Circumcise, but don’t cut too much, for that will be brighter for the face (i.e. satisfying for her) and more pleasing to the husband. {Al-Mustadrak, at-Tabarani , al-Baihaqi} [5]
    In another Hadith the Prophet ﷺ advises the women of the Ansaar in general regarding circumcision;
    يا نســاء الأنصــار اختضـبن عمســاً ، واختفـضن ولا تنـهـكن ؛ فإنه أحظـى لإناثكن عند أزواجهن
    Oh women of the Ansaar! Apply henna and circumcise! but do not exaggerate (i.e.do not cut too much) for it is more pleasing for your women folks when they are with their husbands.
    The aforementioned Ahaadith and others [6]clearly indicate that, not only was circumcision prominent amongst Arab women but its action was also affirmed and endorsed by the Messenger of Allah ﷺ. For this reason the Jurists of Islam are unanimous on the permissibility of female circumcision. Some are of the view that it is compulsory, others are of the view that it an action which is greatly emphasized except that it is not compulsory, while others state that it is Mustahab[7] (commendable). Female circumcision being commendable is the stance of the majority of the Hanafi Jurists and is considered the most preferred and acceptable view.[8]

    Misconception regarding Female Circumcision

    “Female Circumcision is a very barbaric and inhumane action as it entails mutilation of the female genitals”.
    Clarification;
    Female circumcision in our times is commonly referred to as FGM (Female Genital Mutilation) which it practice in many parts of the world. The World Health Organisation (WHO) has categorized FGM into basically three types viz.
    Type I: Often referred to as clitoridectomy, this is the partial or total removal of the clitoris (a small, sensitive and erectile part of the female genitals).
    Type II: Often referred to as excision, this is the partial or total removal of the clitoris and the labia minora (the inner folds of the vulva), with or without excision of the labia majora (the outer folds of skin of the vulva)
    Type III: Often referred to as infibulation, this is the narrowing of the vaginal opening through the creation of a covering seal. The seal is formed by cutting and repositioning the labia minora, or labia majora, sometimes through stitching, with or without removal of the clitoris (clitoridectomy).[9]
    All of the three aforementioned methods of female circumcision are absolutely not in conformity with the laws of Shariah and therefore cannot be attributed to Islam. The Shariah permits female circumcision however, with specific measures and guidelines. The method of female circumcision allowed in the Shariah is completely different to these barbaric methods listed above.
    According to the Scholars of Shariah, the correct method of female circumcision is as follows;
    وهو مقطع جليدة في أعلى فرجها تشبه عرف الديك بينها وبين مدخل الذكَر جلدة رقيقة [10]
    The type of female circumcision which is permitted in Islam entails cutting piece of the thin skin (prepuce) which is above the clitoris in a manner mentioned by the Prophet ﷺ (لا تنهكي) i.e. without exaggeration. Therefore, the method of female circumcision does not entail cutting any part of the clitoris or labia nor does it involve infibulation (the practice of excising the clitoris and labia and stitching together the edges of the vulva to prevent sexual intercourse).
    The method of female circumcision prescribed in the Shariah is akin to male circumcision in that only the prepuce is removed. The procedure of male circumcision entails the removal of the entire foreskin whereas in female circumcision only a piece of the prepuce is removed. Moreover, male circumcision is not considered barbaric rather it is encouraged by many western experts.
    The W.H.O. has also included the method of Female Circumcision prescribed by the Shariah as barbaric and pharaonic and thus grouped it under the category of FGM Type I. However, the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) on the topic of “Harmful Traditional Practices Affecting the Health of Women and Children” released an article which clearly shows that the method of Female- Circumcision permitted by the Shariah is far from being barbaric;
    “Types of surgical forms ;(a) Circumcision or Sunna (“traditional”) circumcision: This involves the removal of the prepuce and the tip of the clitoris. This is the only operation which, medically, can be likened to male circumcision”[11]
    In this article cutting of the tip the clitoris is akin to male circumcision which is acceptable and not considered to be barbaric. Therefore, the method of female circumcision prescribed by the Shariah cannot by any means be regarded as barbaric as only the prepuce (or part of) is removed.
    If a particular medicine, which is proven to work is misused by an individual, it would be foolish of a person to condemn the medicine, what should be condemned is its misuse. Similarly, it is incorrect for a person to condemn female circumcision entirely, as it is legislated by the Shariah, rather one should condemn its misuse and malpractices.

    Benefits of Female Circumcision
    Mentioning some of these benefits, Dr. Haamid al-Ghawaabi says:
    The secretions of the labia minora accumulate in uncircumcised women and turn rancid, so they develop an unpleasant odour which may lead to infections of the vagina or urethra. I have seen many cases of sickness caused by the lack of circumcision.
    Circumcision reduces excessive sensitivity of the clitoris which may cause it to increase in size to 3 centimetres when aroused, which is very annoying to the husband, especially at the time of intercourse.
    Another benefit of circumcision is that it prevents stimulation of the clitoris which makes it grow large in such a manner that it causes pain.
    Circumcision prevents spasms of the clitoris which are a kind of inflammation.
    Circumcision reduces excessive sexual desire.[12]
    Then Dr al-Ghawaabi refutes those who claim that female circumcision leads to frigidity by noting:
    Frigidity has many causes, and this claim is not based on any sound statistics comparing circumcised women with uncircumcised women, except in the case of Pharaonic circumcision which is where the clitoris is excised completely. This does in fact lead to frigidity but it is contrary to the kind of circumcision enjoined by the Prophet of mercy (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) when he said: “Do not destroy” i.e., do not uproot or excise. This alone is evidence that speaks for itself, because medicine at that time knew very little about this sensitive organ (the clitoris) and its nerves.
    From Liwa’ al-Islam magazine, issue 8 and 10; article entitled Khitaan al-Banaat (circumcision of girls).
    The female gynaecologist Sitt al-Banaat Khaalid says in an article entitled Khitaan al-Banaat Ru’yah Sihhiyyah (Female circumcision from a health point of view):
    For us in the Muslim world female circumcision is, above all else, obedience to Islam, which means acting in accordance with the fitrah and following the Sunnah which encourages it. We all know the dimensions of Islam, and that everything in it must be good in all aspects, including health aspects. If the benefits are not apparent now, they will become known in the future, as has happened with regard to male circumcision – the world now knows its benefits and it has become widespread among all nations despite the opposition of some groups.
    Then she mentioned some of the health benefits of female circumcision and said:
    It takes away excessive libido from women
    It prevents unpleasant odours which result from foul secretions beneath the prepuce.
    It reduces the incidence of urinary tract infections
    It reduces the incidence of infections of the reproductive system.
    In the book on Traditions that affect the health of women and children, which was published by the World Health Organization in 1979 it says:
    With regard to the type of female circumcision which involves removal of the prepuce of the clitoris, which is similar to male circumcision, no harmful health effects have been noted. [13]
    In conclusion, Female Circumcision is permitted in Islam by the manner prescribed by the Fuqaha (Jurists), and should only be undertaken by medical experts in that field.
