Ask The Imam Question and Answer

497 I know as Muslims we have to have circumcision, and sort of know why this act is done, but would be grateful if you could clarify as to why this is a requirement.

Also if we need to remove the foreskin then what is the reason we have it in the first place, as Allah created man perfectly. I hope I don't offend anyone, as my purpose for asking the questions is simply to learn for myself and then explain to non Muslims when they put forward this question to me.
This is in the Hikmat (wisdom) of creation.

The skin is a protective layer in development of the male gland, however it can cause hygienic and infectious problems should it not be removed.

Circumcision is done for cleanliness (hygiene) and ease for the person. Hence for a Muslim it is highly recommended to be circumcised.
