What is jawaani (youth)?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: My question is that what does the term jawani (youth) mean. Can it be lost or found in akhirat? Every person remains accountable for it so when is this and till when does it last?


A: Jawaani starts at around 13 and ends at around 40. One should be more particular in his jawaani for whatever he practises in that time is well rooted in him.

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