Female circumcision

Q: Is female circumcision necessary in Islam? In some countries female genital mutilation is practiced, is it haraam according to Islam?



It is recommended.

Explain what you mean by mutilation and where have you seen this. We wish to know the authenticity of this report.

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