Hajj when I was ten years old
*Please appropriately reference this
fatwa to: www.fatwa-online.com, thankyou!*
Question: I performed Hajj when I was ten
years old and, once again, when I was thirteen years old.
So, do both of these Hajj's constitute the obligatory Hajj?
The Hajjs' as mentioned suffice the obligatory Hajj if they
were (performed) after you became of age, either by the excrement
of semen through a wet dream, or the appearance of pubic hair
around the pubic region. This is because the male and female
become of age by either of these two occurrences. Also, reaching
the age of fifteen years and beginning the menstrual cycle
in the case of women.
with Allaah lies all the success, and may Allaah send prayers
and salutations upon our Prophet Muhammad (sal-Allaahu
`alayhe wa sallam)
and his family and his companions.
