Most of the Abrahamic traditions demand circumcision. It seems to be the only united belief among the Christians, Muslims and the Jews. On the 8th day
the Vitamin K levels in the blood of a new born skyrockets. Vit. K is a blood clotter, so they circumcised on the 7th or 8th day.
But, from the article below adult men are also encouraged to get circumcised. I would imagine that it could be a pretty dangerous (as well as stupid)
operation. These operations are also part of rituals, and are not performed in a medical facility.
If I had a wang, and someone was cutting on it, I would want an ambulance close by too.
Remember a few years ago when a Rabbi in NY gave a disease to newborns? Part of that ritual was to suck the blood from the babies cut penis, and he
actually killed at least one baby from whatever it was. abcnews.go.com...
Disgusting. But, it can show just how crazy some of these rituals are.
The Holy Qur'an does not impose an obligation on parents to circumcise their children, but the prophet Mohammed is reported to have stated that
"Circumcision is a sunnah (customary or traditional) for the men. Most references to male circumcision occur in the examples and traditions of the
Prophet (peace be upon him). Therefore the scholars strongly recommend circumcision for male.
From this point of view, traditionally, adult male converts to Islam are encouraged to undergo the operation.
Furthermore, besides submission to the Will of God, male circumcision is an important ritual aimed at improving cleanliness. Therefore, in Arabic,
circumcision is also known as tahara, meaning purification or cleanliness.
