When Should a Child start Worshipping
Question asked by .
Answered by Dr. Shehzad Saleem

What is the age in which a child should start offering the prayer and begin keeping fasts?


In Islam a person is held accountable for his deeds once he develops the ability to distinguish between good and evil. Consequently, it is at this time when he should start offering these rituals. Obviously, no age can be fixed for this, since this awareness comes at different times for different people.
