Saheeh Al-Jami ‘As-Saghir Hadith No. 236

By almaas Sep 7, 2020

اخفضي2 ولا تنهكي فإنه أنضر للوجه وأحظى عند الزوج» .
(صحيح) … [طب ك] عن الضحاك بن قيس. الصحيحة 722)

It is reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“Circumcise, but do not remove completely [1], for this is more pleasing to the face (for looking) and more pleasant for the husband (during sexual intercourse).” This hadith was narrated by al-Tabarani in Mu’jam al-Kabir 8137 and al-Hakim 3/526 from the words of Dahhak ibn Qais.

Sheikh al-Albani called the hadith authentic. See Sahih al-jami ‘as-saghir 236, al-Silsilah al-sahiha 722.


With these words, the prophet turned to Umm ‘Atiyya, who was circumcising girls in Medina.

[1] That is, do not remove the trimmed part completely, but leave some part. See Faydul-Qadir 1/216.  The circumcision here is the clitoris of the woman.
