    The age at which one becomes accountable for their obligatory salat is the age of puberty. This can vary from child to child and also according to climate and environment.

      I don’t have a child but how would one know their child has reached this age? I mean of course at 14/15 it’s a given but earlier than that I don’t think a parent would know. Unless the child does research himself.

      Also I have seen that the age of puberty is usually regarded as the age of accountability. What is the evidence for this?

      You should start training them early. From experience I can tell you that if parents regularly make salat children automatically start to follow without any effort.

      Evidence is in the ijma and tawatur

    Yes I agree with Faisal here. Alhamdolillah my both children (son and daughter started praying since age of 8 and 6) the younger one follows the elder child 🙂

    My daughter hasn’t missed a Salah alhamdolillah since she turned 10. The boy is now 8 and he follows her so is almost consistent.

    There was no need for any aggression as parents.

    I just asked to clarify that at what age it’s obligatory? So that I can convey them the right thing. JazakAllah.
