When some people wish to circumcise their sons, they announce it and gather the people so that they will collect money for them. We know that circumcision is a Sunnah, but what about collecting money for this purpose? Is it permissible or not?
All Praise be to Allah Alone and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, his family and Companions.
Circumcision is one of Sunan-ul-Fitrah (Islamic practices of personal hygiene) which the Prophet (peace be upon him) guided us to perform. However, the custom of collecting money for this purpose is a Bid`ah (innovation in religion).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
