Answered by Sidi Sulaiman Hart

  If one never prayed regularly and did not have a wet dream (al-ihtilaam) until the age of 15, is that the correct age to be used in computation of one’s qadas?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Asalaamu ALaykum


The signs that one has become legally mature are :

1. Ejaculation.
2. Reaching the age of 15 lunar years. (A lunar year is 11 days shorter than a solar year.)
3. Menstruation.

And Allah knows best

Wa salaam
