Circumcision After Nikah

Shortened Question:

Is relation with my wife halal if I am not circumcised?


I was not circumcised during childhood. I got circumcised a few months after my Nikah. Was the relationship with my wife before circumcision halal?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Circumcision is not a condition for nikah. Your nikah was valid and no act of zina was committed.  Your relationship with your wife in an uncircumcised condition is halal.

Circumcision is a noble act and a Sunnah of the prophets Alaihis Salam. As an adult you may still be circumcised.


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
