Answer:


 

Circumcision new muslim

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 7.777 Narrated by Abu Huraira

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "Five practices are characteristics of the Fitra (nature): shaving the pubic region, removing the hair under the arms, clipping the nails, and circumcision and cutting the moustaches short (for men)."

 

The guidance to perform a circumcision is not a Command of the Quran, but rather a guidance from the authentic and established tradition or Sunnah of the Last Messenger of Allah (saws). The circumcision, as stated by the Messenger of Allah (saws) is a characteristic of fitrah or nature, and a Sunnah of not only Prophet Mohamed (saws) but also the Sunnah of the friend of Allah and the father of the Prophets, Prophet Ibraheem (a.s.). Circumcision is not compulsory or obligatory in Islam, but rather it is a Sunnah or voluntary act

 

My question is when a non muslim becomes a muslim is there need of circumcission??

Circumcision is not considered an obligatory duty in Islam, but rather a voluntary act; thus if one reverts to Islam at an advanced age and chooses to perform circumcision, it would closest to the Sunnah; and if for any reason one chooses not to perform circumcision, there would be no blame or sin upon him.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
