Is circumcision medically necessary?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com

As Salamu alaikum wa Rahmatulaahi wa Barakaatuhu

Is it permitted to do Khatna (circumcision) of children as medically? Since the medical doctors use something that get heated with the help of electric current and with its help cut the khatna skin. I have heard that it is not permitted to do so as it works on fire.

Kindly answer!


(Fatwa: 494/J)

Circumcising with electronically heated tool is allowed, there is nothing wrong. In Arab, people used to get treatment by cauterization; the Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم) has allowed it.
