Question: What is the aim of circumcision of men in Islam?

The aim of circumcision of man in Islam firstly is to distinguish between Muslim man and others; this is an important sign to know someone"s religion after his death. If he is circumcised, then he is a Muslim so Muslims carry out washing him, shrouding him, perform prayers upon him and burying him in Muslims" graves. Circumcision preserves his rights as a Muslim after his death; this happens mostly during accidents and wars so they know the religion by circumcision.

Secondly, the prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said that the description of the people of paradise where we all hope to go, is that they are circumcised, so circumcision is a glad tiding that a Muslim will go to paradise.

Thirdly, modern medicine also mentioned the medical benefits for circumcision for men; they said that viruses, microbes and germs collect around the foreskin which is cut and this lead to infection and diseases like cancer, so some European countries tend to men circumcision lately after realizing the medical benefits.
