Islam Q&A – Ruling On Female Circumcision

From those omniscient clerics at Islam Question and Answer:

Ruling on female circumcision

Question No 1188

Question:

Is female circumcision sunnah or a bad practice? I read in a magazine that female circumcision in any form is a bad practice that is harmful from a medical point of view, and that it may sometimes lead to sterility. Is this correct?

Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.

Circumcising females is sunnah; it is neither a bad practice or harmful, if it is done within moderation. When extreme forms of female circumcision are carried out, harm may result.

Okay.

As long as it is done in moderation.

    Dear Mr Imam

    WHO MADE YOU IMAM, YOU NEED TO BE STONED TO DEATH.

    WHO SAYS FEMALE CICUMCISION IS ALLOWED IN ISLAM. ????

    I PRAY TO ALLAH THAT PEOPLE LIKE YOU MUST CERTAINLY GO TO HELL, FOR YOU MALIGN THE NAME OF ALLAH WITH YOUR BLASPHEMY.

    FOR ALL WHO READ, FEMALE CICUMSICION IS NOT AN ISLAMIC PRACTICE BUT CULTURAL.

    ISLAM DOESNT SPEAK A WORD ABOUT IT.

    ISLAM TEACHES LOVE FOR WOMEN AND RESPECT, NEVER PAIN FOR WOMEN.

    CONTACT ME IF YOU WANT MORE INSIGHT ABOUT ISLAM

    First of all I think we have a perfectly clear picture of Islam. Totally fabricated by the bastard son of a camel driver. The bible told us thousands of years before Islam that the descendants of Ishmael would be mad men. What insight!!!
    As to the 72 virgins. That was a misprint. It’s actually 72 big hairy Virginians. SURPRISE!!!!!

  3. Liberals Demise says:

    VMAN—–YOU SLAY ME!!!
    As for SYED…..I’ve heard alot from your people about Islam being the religion of peace, love, blablabla!!!
    Of course all the rest of us in the world who aren’t wearing blinders see it as nothing but brutal towards your fellow Human Beings!! Whats more is the FACT that you “professed peace” lovers don’t stand up for your beliefs in the face of the very same people who are hijacking your religion for their sick teachings. Until the day comes that all Muslims stand up and condemn the radicals in your faith, your words of peace and love shall continue to be unbelieved and abhored!! Personally…ya’ll make me sick and I won’t have no problem teaching you man/boy lovers some manners!!

    Liberal demise-Peace be Upon You

    I answered an answer of the so called Imam here. it is true that it is some illitrate Imam that gives an untrue anwer like that.There are many such worms in every community and society/and these need to be removed so peace prevails. These mislead youths and these break peace by their reckless and irresposible behavior.

    I will just say, religion is a pathway. Islam doesnt need your certificate to pass niether does Christianity etc.. But you will need a certificate to find your place on the day of resurrection from God and Jesus Christ.
    If Islam is word of God, then God is enough to defend his word. We must read and know, before we say anything about anything.

    Peace be upon you:)

    syed,
    Please explain to us why muslims like you stand by and let these people define your religion?

    If you are skeered , just say so.

    Where are the muslims decrying the muslim terrorist?

  6. syed says:

    I am not here to make you believe Islam etc… that is crap, just saying that the answer given by this Imam is incorrect. By the way Imam means a learned scholar of religion and life, I will not call this man Imam. This man is ignorant and illitrate person I am sure.:)))

  7. 1sttofight says:

    I am not here to make you believe Islam etc…

    That was not the question I asked.

  8. VMAN says:

    So syed what does you so called religion say if I try to convert one of your members to say Hinduism or, allah forbid, Christianity? Would I be worthy of death and if the person converted would they be worthy of death? I think we all know the answer. The Bible tells us what to expect from you sons of Ishmael.
