What is the preferable and suitable time for circumcising children; babyhood or after they reach puberty?
All Praise be to Allah Alone and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, his family and Companions.
There is no defined time for circumcision in Shari`ah according to our knowledge in this regard. (Part No. 5; Page No. 124) Being young, circumcision will be easier and preferable for the child. Therefore, there is no blame upon circumcising a baby at that time.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
