Fiction > The circumcision

    In a story about male genital cutting, the shadow of a military threat seems entirely apropos. More men need to articulate circumcision stories of their own. No easy feat, and this writer is to be commended.

    The Qur’an doesn’t mention circumcision, not even once. It does say this though:

    He created everything in exact measure; He precisely designed everything. (25:2)

    He designed you, and designed you well. (40:64)

    He created the heavens and the earth for a specific purpose, designed you and perfected your design. (64:3)

    He created man in the best design. (95:4)

    We did not leave anything out of this book. (6:38)
