Circumcision Partially Recommended
In Islam, circumcision is mentioned in some hadith, but not in the Qur’an.1 Not all Muslims circumcise their sons, it is rarely performed in infancy, and it not a requirement for converting to Islam. Nevertheless, boys choosing to undergo the rite should be fully informed about the procedure, its complications, and long-term consequences.
All American citizens have freedom of religion. You might consider that, although you are a practicing Muslim, your son might not choose that religion for himself, and by circumcising him you are denying his freedom of religion.
