Circumcision is one of the prerequisites

Q: If a person embraces Islam as an adult, when they are over forty, and it is difficult for them to be circumcised, can they neglect this Sunnah (commendable act)?


A: All praise is due to Allah Alone and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, his family and Companions. If circumcision after accepting Islam is too difficult, due to age, there is no problem if a man does not do it. It should not be insisted on, through fear that it may be the reason for him not entering (Part No. 5; Page No. 116) Islam.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
