What is the ruling on the circumcision of girls? Is it Mustahab (desirable) or Makruh (disliked)?
All Praise be to Allah Alone and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, his family and Companions.
Female circumcision is desirably recommended, as the Prophet (peace be upon him) stated:
"Five practices are characteristics of the Fitrah (natural disposition)...," and he mentioned circumcision as one of them.
Shaddad ibn Aws (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) stated:
Circumcision is a Sunnah (commendable act) for men, and by doing it, women are honored.
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
