22nd November 2011, Iman Raziq was just 8 years and 4 months when he asked to undergo a circumcision (khitan). So after a long discussion and with the acquiescence of both families members, we agreed to bring him to the nearest clinic.
Just for the information, the circumcision is not mentioned in the Qur'an, and it is also not compulsory in Islam. However, the main reasons that we as a Muslim do it is because it is highly recommended prophetic act (sunnah), aimed at improving hygiene (cleanliness).
Iman Raziq was waiting with his heart beat vigorously at the clinic (Klinik Amin) in Taman Melawati, Kuala Lumpur. Both family members were there to witness and to boost his morale :)
Exactly at 8.30 am, Iman was the first to be called into the treatment room. Me and my wife were there by his side all the way in the room. We held his hand, wiped his tears and calmed him down.
