Is circumcising women considered an act of Sunnah (a commendable act) or a bad habit?
I read in one magazine that all forms of circumcising women represent a bad habit which is harmful to health and may sometimes lead to sterility. Is this true?
All Praise is due to Allah Alone and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, his family, and Companions.Circumcising women
is Sunnah. It is not a bad habit and it is not harmful if it is done in a reasonable way. It may only harm if it is done with exaggeration. (Part No. 5; Page No. 121) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
