Feminists frequently condemn Islam for the custom of female circumcision. This is despite the fact that it is really an African practice. It is never mentioned in the Quran, is not prescribed by three of the four main schools of Islamic jurisprudence, and was only absorbed into the fourth school in North Africa where it was a fact of life.[1]
