The Holy Islamic Practice of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)



I have read, more than several times --- mostly from Western (so-called) feminists, wrongly decrying the HOLY Islamic practice of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).

Even worse, I have read posts by Muslims that pretend that this has nothing to do with Islam.

Now, let us look at the facts:

As we know, Muhammad issued a blanket prohibition FOR ALL TIME against:

1) eating pork
2) drinking alcohol. (etc...)

Thus, Muslims do not eat pork or drink alcohol.

Even the Prophet’s dislike for dogs has been translated into these animals becoming unclean in the eyes of believers.

However, HE DID NOT forbid female genital mutilation.

Instead he encouraged his followers not to perform the most radical form of mutilation (infibulation) [– this would be type III in this diagram-] ……telling them in his sunna not to “overdo it.”





Book 41, Number 5251:Narrated Umm Atiyyah al-Ansariyyah:

"…When you circumcise then do not cut severely, since that is better for her and more pleasing to the husband." (Reported by Abu Dawud and Al-Baihaqee and declared Hasan by Shaikh Al-Albani)…”

Also:
"Better for the woman and more pleasing for the husband" and that it is "Better of the face and more pleasing to the husband." (Reported by Al-Baihaqee)

Thus we Muslims have the practice known as “sunna circumcision.”

Today, Muhammad’s statements (sunna) continue to be cited in support of this most Islamic of traditions. According to the shafi school of Islamic law, which is followed by Somalis (among others), it is an obligation to “circumcise” girls for their own good.


For another look at the previous hadiths, as well as the following quotes, please see the Islamic website “The Muslim Woman..” --- at the following address:


At this site, you will find among other things, the justification, by Muslim WOMEN, of FGM as it practiced on Muslim women.

"…A further benefit that is apparent for women and more so for their husbands, is that women of hot climates often have a large clitoris which arouses their desires when it rubs against the adjacent clothing.
[..]
It may even grow to such a size that sexual intercourse is not possible. Therefore, circumcision reduces her desires and their effects in the first case, and makes intercourse possible in the second case...”


In Islam, FGM is among the most beneficial procedures a Muslim woman can undergo.

As we can see from another well respected Islamic site: Islam online, where the renowned Muslim scholar and Sheik Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, (who is the "spiritual leader" of the Muslim Brotherhood (the largest Muslim organization in the world with umbrella groups like Hamas and the Council of American Islamic Relations -CAIR) explains why he would personally mutilate the genitals of his daughters:

“…whoever finds it serving the interest of his daughters should do it, and I personally support this under the current circumstances in the modern world…”

Thus, as we know, 97% of Egyptian women (and in some areas 99% of Muslim women) have been lucky enough to have their genitals mutilated as stipulated by the beloved Prophet of Islam.


And from the following article, you can see that Muslims stand behind this most Islamic of practices, and wonder how on earth infidels could be upset by the fact a 4 year old girl, while having her clitoris chopped off, and subsequently died is anything other than “…the will of Allah…”…?

[ …Egyptians Stand By Female Circumcision…]



For any of you that wish to see the work of Islam in maintaining the dignity of Muslim women, please see the link.
(CAUTION: Not for those that are squeamish or offended by the GLORY of Islam).


Those that still are trying to besmirch the good name of Islam with lies, may also be interested in the opinions of the Muslim women themselves (with regards to FGM as practiced in Egypt where 97% of women have undergone this holy Islamic proceedure).

Partial Transcript:

Female villager:
Circumcision is part of the Sunna of the Prophet.We used to bring a daya, and she would circumcise the children, but when the role of the daya was abolished, we stopped. Now we take our children to the doctor, and he circumcises them.

[..]

Female villager:
Yes. If a girl is not circumcised, she can't stand it.When she is circumcised, she is calm and has self-restraint. The circumcision protects the girl and makes her calm.

[...]

Interviewer:
So you think all women should be circumcised to protect their honor?

Female villager:
The Prophet said that the men go and wage Jihad for a year. He said that girls should be circumcised so they can bear it for a whole year until the men return.




Thus, can one really say that Islam and the teachings of the prophet Muhammad really have nothing to do with this practice?

How can one say that Islam doesn't endorse this practice, where the spiritual leader of the largest Islamic organisation on the planet says that it does, the women with mulitlated genitals also say that it does, as does the Apostle of Allah himself?

After reading this, I am sure many of our female friends in the lands of the infidel, will understand the error of their ways and will be lining up to have this most Islamic of procedures done, to follow the JUSTICE that Islam provides women.

Allah knows best.

It amounts to chopping off pennis in male. What sensation will a male get if he has no pennis. So it is for a woman. Why one should accept it? There is no logic.

ISLAM IS TOTALLY AGAINST THIS ACT OF BARBARITY. Female circumcision or genital mutilation has nothing to do with Islam. It is a local custom/tradition of the people of Sudan and adjoining countries. It is a tribal thing and is practised by both muslims and non-Muslims. It has never been practised in Islamic countries like Arabia, Persia, India, Turkey, Indinesia, Malaysia or Central Asia

Islam is SICK. I see Muslims that just try and say this or that is not true, however, when faced with an enormous amount of evidence, try and lie their way through.

Muslims are always the same.

Satan hates women. That is why your Corán, inspired by Satan, denigrates women. People, come out of this evil, and come to YESHÚA, JESUS. HE does not command that you be treated wrong! HE loves you, and died for you to save you from hell! Just pray that HE enters your heart, repent of your sins, accept HIM as your Lord and Savior and you will be saved! Only JESUS Saves!!!! Amen!!!
