Question :

I am from a Muslim family, but my father died when I was young and I was brought up by my non-Muslim mother. I am now in my 30s. I am not circumcised but have been told this is necessary for Hajj. I have also been told that to be circumcised later in life is dangerous. Can I therefore do Hajj without being circumcised?

Answer :

Such an operation is not dangerous usually, and it is a fairly simple one. Pilgrimage is not valid without circumcision.
