Khitan is one of the teachings in Islam specifically intended for males. The term "khitan" itself, derived from the Arabic word "Khatnun," means to cut the foreskin or the front part of the male genitalia. The purpose of khitan is to prevent the accumulation of impurities in the genital area and protect individuals from diseases.
During the khitan ceremony, individuals often observe their own traditions. For example, in Indonesia, a celebration called "walimatul khitan" is held after a male child undergoes khitan. This celebration involves festivities and is accompanied by the recitation of prayers for the newly circumcised child.
Here is an explanation of what walimatul khitan entails, along with the accompanying prayer, as compiled by Dream from various sources.
Khitan is a religious obligation in Islam for every male child. This is explained in a hadith narrated by Imam Muslim, which states: "Abu Bakar bin Abu Syaibah, Amru an-Naqid, and Zuhair bin Harb, all narrated from Sufyan. Abu Bakar said, Ibnu Uyainah narrated to us from az-Zuhri, from Sa'id bin al-Musayyab, from Abu Hurairah, from the Prophet ﷺ, he said, 'There are five acts that are part of the fitrah (natural disposition): circumcision, shaving the pubic hair, trimming the nails, plucking the armpit hair, and trimming the mustache.
