Muslims do not circumcise girls. Female genital mutilation (FGM), also known as female circumcision, is a harmful practice that involves the partial or total removal of external female genitalia for non-medical reasons. FGM is not an Islamic practice and Islam does not prescribe or encourage female genital mutilation. In fact, many Muslim scholars and organizations actively condemn this practice, emphasizing the importance of protecting the well-being and rights of girls and women.
