Asalaam aleykum Warahmatullah
Brothers and Sisters
I know some mght feel embrassed about this issue but would like to know what does Islam (Qur'an or Sunna) that allows this practise.
I know some would come and say ohhh some non Muslim countries also practise this but my focus of discussion is not on non-Muslims but rather Muslims.
Its a practise that is widely done in Oman, Somalia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, India (Muslims parts), Sudan, Egypt (where 96%) of girls have been genetically mutilated (Behind circumcision lies the belief in these societies that, by removing parts of girls' external genitals organs, sexual desire is minimized) and I remember one of the scholars there Sheik Youssef Badri even endorsed this practise.
Some defend this for cultural reasons, but last time I checked we Muslims are told that ISLAM COMES FIRST BEFORE CULTURES so why would people who are Muslims practise this Female Genital Mutilation?
I stand to be corrected and I hope to learn alot on the subject
