What I meant to say was, Is Circumcision permited in the Koran? There are clear verses in the Qur'an against circumcision (i.e. 95:4, 23:14, 27:88, 32:7, 80:17-19 & 4:119-120). The practice of this procedure is in violation of these Quranic and Allahic verses. So, now we have come to understand from the Qur'an that it is against the laws of Allah to be circumcised as exhibited in the above ayats. When the baby leaves his mother, he needs no cutting-off of any part of his body as Allah says He makes the baby in perfect form - a form that is best to function as a human. The foreskin serves many useful purposes and removing and stitching it causes life-long disadvantages. Satan pledges to make mankind manipulate Allah's creation, and gives the example of cutting off bits of the body (4:119-120). "Circumcision" is an outright manipulation of Allah's intended creation. A method Satan would use identified in the Qur'an to achieve his objectives is through the use of "fancy words" (6:112). None of the hadiths to do with circumcision differentiate between male or female 'circumcision' and there are hadiths that indicate females should also be circumcised: The hadith basis for male circumcision is the same basis for female circumcision! There is no reason to not circumcise girls if boys are. Quran does indicates whether its founder Marehemu Muham-mad was circumcised, but based on the above mentioned verses one can not be very wrong to conclude that he was not. Now my question is, if the Quran does not permit circumcision why do Muslims circumcise their young ones while knowing it is against the teaching of Quran?
