Muslim family arrives from Iraq in private jet, says they’re fleeing female genital mutilation threat

As far as I know, FGM is Not practiced by the SHIAS,who are 90% of Muslims in Iran,but here is the info on why the SUNNIS do it:


FGM is also called FEMALE CIRCUMCISION is Not Obligatory but it is PERMITTED in 6 SEPARATE sayings of Mohammed .

Here they are( from WIKILSAM ),_Hadith_and_Scholars:Female_Genital_Mutilation



The fitrah is five things, including circumcision

Note that the RULE of HADITH dictate that if it is not mentioned specifically or if the pronouns do not point to a certain gender,

then the hadith is VALID for BOTH SEXES. Hence, the following hadiths are APPLICABLE for both MEN and WOMEN.

(Abu Hurayrah said: I heard the PROPHET (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: “The fitrah is five things – or five things are part of the fitrah –


shaving the pubes, trimming the moustache, cutting the nails and plucking the armpit hairs.)

(Bukhari 5891 and ALSO in Muslim 527)


A preservation of honor for women

(Abu al- Malih ibn `Usama’s father relates that the PROPHET said: “CIRCUMCISION is a LAW for MEN and a PRESERVATION of HONOR for WOMEN.”)

(Ahmad Ibn Hanbal 5:75; Abu Dawud, Adab 167.)


Do not cut “severely”

Note that the judgement concerning what is severe is relative.

(Narrated Umm Atiyyah al-Ansariyyah: A woman used to perform circumcision in Medina.

The PROPHET (peace be upon him) said to her: “Do NOT CUT SEVERELY as that is better for a woman and more desirable for a husband.”)

(Sunan Abu Dawud 41:5251)


When the circumcised parts touch each other

(Abu Musa reported: There cropped up a difference of opinion between a group of Muhajirs (Emigrants and a group of Ansar (Helpers) (and the point of dispute was) that the Ansar said: The bath (because of sexual intercourse) becomes obligatory only-when the semen spurts out or ejaculates.

But the Muhajirs said: When a man has sexual intercourse (with the woman), a bath becomes obligatory (no matter whether or not there is seminal emission or ejaculation). Abu Musa said: Well, I satisfy you on this (issue).

He (Abu Musa, the narrator) said: I got up (and went) to ‘A’isha and sought her permission and it was granted, and I said to her: 0 Mother, or Mother of the Faithful, I want to ask you about a matter on which I feel shy.

She said: Don’t feel shy of asking me about a thing which you can ask your mother, who gave you birth, for I am too your mother.

Upon this I said: What makes a bath obligatory for a person? She replied: You have come across one well informed! The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: When anyone sits amidst four parts (of the woman) and the CIRCUMCISED PARTS

TOUCH EACH OTHER a bath becomes obligatory.)

(Sahih Muslim 3:684)
