Q: This question is on behalf of a revert brother that is planning to get married. He would like to know what is the ruling on circumcision for a male revert to Islam in the light of Hanafi fiqh as well as Shaafi fiqh? What is the ruling of ghusl after relations with regards to not being circumcised? Would ghusl be valid if he is not circumcised? Any other advise for the brother would be accepted.


A: It is an emphasised sunnat.

The ghusl will be valid.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
