FGM and Islam

Cut the Clitoral Relativism: Islam, Sharia, and Female Genital Mutilation/“Circumcision”

Dar al-Hijrah imam defends FGM

Reliance of the Traveller: e4.3 Circumcision is obligatory (O: for both men and women. For men it consists of removing the prepuce from the penis, and for women, removing the prepuce (Ar. bazr) of the clitoris (n: not the clitoris itself, as some mistakenly assert). (A: Hanbalis hold that circumcision of women is not obligatory but sunna, while Hanafis consider it a mere courtesy to the husband.)
