Scholar of the Sunnah, Sh. Muhammad Sa’id Raslan [حفظه اللّٰه] mentioned
“The students differed, is that this circumcision beneficial or compulsory and when is it compulsory for an individual to have it in his lifetime? Is it compulsory for women and men, or for males solely?
The correct view of these differences is that it’s obligatoty. Circumcision contains the completion of purity in males, and stabilization of nature in females. In it are health benefits of which these with mind choose (to enjoy). The time for when circumcision is compulsory, is when reaching maturity, however whether it is earlier than that then it’s extra mild on the circumcised, and fewer painful, and sooner in therapeutic.
The Scholar Ibnul-Qayyim [رحمه اللّٰه] talked about in Tuhfatul-Mawadud:
‘It takes place on the seventh day, if attainable.’
Since at the moment the nerve endings aren’t but grown fully, so if circumcision does happen; There will probably be no ache which tends to be of concern, due to this fact whoever has circumcised in this age doesn’t want anesthetics and as for the grown up, he’ll want medication in any other case the individuals should collect round him from each path (to carry him). The compulsory time is within the time of puberty, when it turns into compulsory for him to purify himself and pray. The legislated circumcision is the chopping of the covert pores and skin of the glans of the male, and the skinning of a small portion of the pores and skin that’s on the highest a part of the famale’s vagina and also you do know that many conferences and establishments now prohibit this discount in females, and this isn’t sound, that is disgraceful, opposing the laws quite what they reasoned with is that which comes from dangerous software, as a result of the Prophet [ﷺ] when he passed by that girl (who practiced circumcision for ladies), he mentioned:
‘Clip however do not go excessive.’
The woman must be offered to the expert Muslim girl, and that girl is the one who seems to be; She could not discover taking one thing vital, that is from a medical level throughout process, the physician could discover the woman in a state of affairs the place it is not upon her. The state of affairs could not necessitate to take one thing so she says: This has nothing in it (to be eliminated). You may additionally discover her like the person and this happens for some girls go to some surgeons; as a result of she will be able to’t not be affected person on this, she can’t reside like this – she’s going to go in opposition to her personal will, maybe even behind her household’s again. There isn’t any ban on these strategies, harmonizing with the faith of Allah the Blessed and Almighty, harmonizing with human nature, because the Prophet [ﷺ] mentioned this when he talked about this challenge within the traits of human nature (Al-Fitdrah), however we ask Allah to guide all Muslims, and to return us all again to the reality fantastically, Indeed He is ready to do all issues. Indeed in some nations, there are some wild individuals who take away the entire pores and skin of the clitoris, and declare ignorantly that that is the circumcision (legislated), whereas that is nothing however torture, a illustration and in opposite to what was brought by the Prophet [ﷺ], that is forbidden and the one who does this can be a sinner.
I ask Allah, could He be blessed and exalted, to grant us all success in following His pure regulation, and adhering to the strategy of His prophet and our final supplication is that Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.”
