A man circumcised his eleven-day-old child after his death, as the baby died before being circumcised.
He did so out of his strong desire not to commit a sin. Given that he did that out of ignorance, what is the ruling on it? Does he have to pay Kaffarah (expiation)? Please advise, may Allah reward you!
All Praise be to Allah Alone and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, his family and Companions.If the case is as mentioned, he has not committed a sin because he was ignorant. However, he should not do that again after any child's death.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
