Marriage and circumcision


My friend converted to Islam 10 years ago a sister as asked him for nikah but she wants him to get circumcision. He is Hanafi and she is Shafi. Someone told him to get circumcision at is age is haram what should he do? She will not do nikah with him unless he gets circumcision and is it haram for him to get circumcision at is age hes in is 40s.


The Hanafi jurist Imam al-Haskafi states:
– If an old person entered Islam, and the experts in medical field were of the opinion that he won’t be able to stand it, then circumcision should not be carried out. (Durr al-Mukhtar)

From this opinion you can decide in case of your friend.
