Circumcision is the removal of the foreskin from the human penis. In the most common procedure, the foreskin is opened, adhesions are removed, and the foreskin is separated from the glans. After that, a circumcision device may be placed, and then the foreskin is cut off.
In Islam, circumcision is not obligatory, and it is considered as a Sunnah, strongly emphasised on, especially at a young age. For any male, whether Muslim by birth, or having converted to Islam, who has not undergone the process, they should consider doing it, as there are many religious and physical benefits for it.
However, if a man wishes to perform his Hajj pilgrimage, one of the obligatory prerequisites is that he must be circumcised in order for his pilgrimage to be valid.
And Allah knows best.
The circumcision is correct if approved by the expert who performed it that he took the foreskin off during the procedure.
Due to the penis being a living tissue, it may sometimes change in size where all the penis head is exposed, and at other times, leaving some of the head covered as mentioned in your example.
After consulting with a brother I know who works in this field, and who is an expert in circumcision, he confirmed that your issue is common and wouldn’t be classed as ‘uncircumcised’. Many other adults he has checked also experience this after they were circumcised when younger.
Ulema say that the important part is for the top part of the head to be exposed (meaning the urinating hole).
Some extra skin sometimes going a bit over the head when it’s cold wouldn’t invalidate the circumcision as at other times the head will be fully exposed in a normal state.
The ulema also state that one can rely on those who perform circumcision to take the correct amount. So you may trust their judgement.
May Allah grant you success
If you are not fully circumcised, you need to get your circumcision done properly.
It is compulsory on any new Muslim man to get himself circumcised.
Circumcision for him is an obligatory act (Wajib). If he does not
perform this obligatory act, his Tawaaf around the Ka’aba will be
invalid and if he slaughters any animal, that animal will be not be
As far as having children with his Muslim wife, it is permissible in principle, but
his Muslim wife should be sure that he is really a Muslim who does not object
to the rules of Islam.
The Muslim women should be sure about the future of her marriage future with him and should not, God-forbid, have to face unexpected situation that he rejects the rules of Islam.
There is no such act in obligatory or recommended acts in Islam called female circumcision. Circumcision is obligatory on males only not females. Female circumcision is a cultural act practiced in some countries by people belonging to different religions. It is being practiced in some areas in Africa by Christians and Muslims and other communities.
Cutting any part of the female genitalia or causing any harm to the female is Haraam (forbidden) in Islam.
Yes, it is compulsory for you to get circumcised as the Hadeeth narrated from Imam Jafar Al-Sadiq (AS) that Imam Ali (AS) said: When a man becomes a Muslim, he must get circumcised even if he reached the age of eighty.
( Was'il al-Shia by al-Hurr al-Aamili, vol. 21, page 440.)
It is not allowed for man to perform Tawaf ( around the Ka'bah) if he is not circumcised as it narrated from Imam Jafar Al-Sadiq ( AS): uncircumcised man is not allowed to do Tawaf around Ka'bah. ( Wasa'il al-Shia by al-Hurr al-Aamili, vol. 13, page 270).
There is no female circumcision in Shia Islam, which is the Islam of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) and his Holy Progeny Ahlul Bayt (AS).
In some African societies, they cut a part of the private part of the female , which is according to their culture. It is Haraam ( forbidden) do that when it causes harm to the female.
Circumcision is only for males and it is called in Arabic Khitaan. There is no Khitaan for females at all. All we have in our books for females is Khafdh which is not circumcision at all. Khafdh is not recommended in religion but it is a cultural practice among some societies. Khafdh is removing part of the skin on female private part.
No. We don't have anything like that.
Obviously, Islamic rules are for humans, not for animals.
Maybe it is necessary for the first 7 days of life.
At least we can say it is like hair and nails that we should cut them...
The Qur'an says: "We have created human being in the best make, then We made him to the lowest of the low except those who believe and do good deeds" (95:4-6). It is concluded from the above-mentioned verses that the "best make" does not refer to physical shape as it says "except those who believe and do good". It rather refers to the human capacity to attain good, piety and spiritual beauty which is the outcome of "faith and righteous deeds". The Qur'an tells us to follow the Prophet Muhammad, peace be on him and his family: "Certainly you have an excellent model in the Messenger fo Allah" (33:21). Regarding circumcision, the Prophet instructed Muslims to follow the sunna of prophet Ibrahim, peace be in him. There have been no disagreement on this issue and Muslims conformed to this practice since the time of the last Prophet. A correlation may be also done in reference to the verse: "And we have revealed to you:- Follow the way of Ibrahim upright: he was not one of the polytheists-" (16:23). The circumcision of prophet Ibrahim was an act of monotheism that distanced himself from the polytheists; that is probably why in some narrations such practice has been defined as "fitrah".
With prayers for your success.
