Was Nabi (S.A.W.) Circumcised?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Mahmoodiyah


Respected Mufti Saheb
Assalamualaikum Wa rahmatullahi Wa barakatuhu
Is there any evidence from history that our Prophet SAW was ever circumcised?





Majority of the Ulamaa are of the opinion that Rasoolullah (S.A.W.) was born circumcised. They substantiate their view with a Hadith of Nabi (S.A.W.), “From the favours bestowed unto me by my Sustainer, is that I was born circumcised, in a happy state. And no soul has seen my modesty (private parts).”
