Q: I am Islamically 14 and not sure if I am baaligh. I have released mazi and probably wadhi but not mani. Am I baaligh and can I perform Salaah as an Imaam?


A: If you are not clear about being baaligh then I suggest that you wait for another year until you are fifteen according to the lunar calendar and then you may lead the namaaz.

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