Is it the woman right that I have circumcision or is it not possible for her to insist me to do that?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

I am a new convert and i am going marry soon, so may question to you: Is it the woman right that I have circumcision or is it not possible for her to insist me to do that? Because maybe it is not without any risk to do that in the age of 30. Thank u for your answer

Answer

Circumcision is not the right of a woman to insist. Rather, it is regarded
as Sunnah-e-Muakkadah. Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, ‘Five
practices are the characteristics of Fitrah; circumsicion, shaving the pubic
hair, clipping the nails and cutting the moustache short.’ (Bukhari).

Circumsicion is also regarded as the way of Ambiyaa (Alayhimus salaam), so
it was not only practiced by Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam), but by the
apostles before Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam).

From this, we can deduce it’s not a matter of the women insisting but a
requirement of the Deen. Also, you can consult your doctor who would explain
to you that there is no real danger in having the circumsicion done, because
many persons had it done at a late age.
