Becoming baaligh

Q: A few months back before I became baaligh I masturbated and semen came out. It just appeared and it did not shoot out. I took it as though I was baaligh and after that whenever I masturbated semen just appeared. It did not really shoot out. Ever since I did not have a single wet dream. I am not sure whether I have wet dreams as my semen does not shoot out. My penis is still really small but I am 15 years old. 1. Did I become baligh at that time when I first masturbated? 2. Is salaah made as an imam accepted? My penis is still small. What should I do. Alhamdulillah I did not masturbate for 3 months and I don’t think I had a wet dream either. Please answer everything in detail.



1. Yes.

2. From the age of fifteen you will be counted as a baaligh person. All the laws of buloogh will apply to you. Hence the namaaz you have led will also be valid.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
