What is circumcision in Islam?
Circumcision means cutting off the skin on the tip of the penis. That is to cut the skin around the tip of the penis.
This usually involves extending the foreskin fold of the penis and removing the foreskin from the tip of the human penis.
It is done in different ways depending on the family, society and country. This is usually done with a small bed ceremony.
Circumcision is considered a religious act in Islam. There are references to the fact that it will be beneficial.
Why do circumcision in Islam?
Circumcision is a great sunnah in Islam. The great prophets sent by God have performed this circumcision. Muslims perform circumcision to perform this circumcision.
Circumcision has been encouraged in many hadiths. As Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) narrates, the innate nature of man is five –
Circumcision, umbilical hair removal, armpit hair removal, nail and moustache cut (Sahih Bukhari – 569)
In addition, circumcision is done due to certain diseases especially phimosis, paraphimosis etc.
Phimosis is when the skin on the tip of the penis covers the urethra, which prevents urine from flowing properly.
This urine accumulates inside the penis and the head of the penis becomes swollen and the calves cry in pain.
Again, many times the skin on the tip of the penis becomes hard. As a result, it is not possible to move the skin forward or backwards. This causes the penis to swell towards the head and the blood circulation is not normal.
Circumcision is necessary for both reasons. Again, sometimes the penis of young children can get stuck with the pants chain. Circumcision is also done in this ban.
What is the age of circumcision?
The best time for a boy to be circumcised is when he is young. This is what the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said.
Imam Ibn al-Qayyim said, “Children will be taught to pray at the age of seven, so circumcision will be circumcised before that.”
Imam Ibn Taymiyyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said:
Circumcised before reaching puberty.
And if a person becomes an adult without being circumcised, then there are two opinions about him.

A brief history of circumcision
The exact date when circumcision was introduced is not preserved in history.
However, by examining various references and facts, it can be inferred that it was prevalent 2,300 or more years before the birth of Jesus (PBUH).
Said Ibn Musayyab (may Allah have mercy on him) said: Ibrahim (peace be upon him) was the first person to perform circumcision. (Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah – 2648)
The reference to his claim is a verse from the Holy Quran. Where Allah Ta’ala says –
‘Remember (the time) when Ibrahim was tested by his Lord with a few words. Then he completes it. He said, “I will make you an Imam for the people.”
Did he say, from my descendants? He said that the oppressors are not my promise. (Surat al-Baqara, 124)
Explaining this verse, Ibn Kathir (may Allah have mercy on him) said that one of the tests of Ibrahim (peace be upon him) was circumcision. (Tafsir Ibn Kathir – 1/406)
