Is Having a Small Genital a Defect in a Man

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Mufti Mohammed Tosir Miah


I have this brother who is shy to ask a scholar about a particular question and has asked me to speak on behalf of him. The situation is: His going to get married very soon, but the problem is his genitals (penis) is not long enough and does not know what to do, he really loves this sister but is afraid to explain to her about his personal problem. What shall he do?

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


Having a small genital is not considered to be a defect in a man. However, if the man’s genital is cut (mahjuub) or he has erectile dysfunction then it is considered to be a defect.

Insha Allah, this brother should not worry about his small genitals and get married to this sister. Insha Allah, there would be barakah in the marriage and there would be no problems.

Only Allah Knows Best
