The Quran Never Approves Female Circumcision/Genital Mutilation
The Quran does not demand circumcision (khitan). Female circumcision, which is an African-based practice, that came to Muslims through narrations. Although the narration taken as evidence for this process is categorized as weak (Abu Dawud, Adab 166-167 (5271), unfortunately, Shafis claimed that this process is obligatory.
Female genital mutilation is performed by cutting the female genitalia at various rates. Hundreds of millions of women suffer as a result of this process while they are toileting, having their periods, giving birth to children and having sexual intercourse. All forms of female genital mutilation create difficulties for women and threaten their health.
As a result, it should be known that hundreds of millions of women suffer medically because of this practice, which is traditionally accepted as a condition although it is not clearly obligatory. It is absolutely impossible to claim that the cause of this harmful process is Islam.
