Is salah (prayer) obligatory at age 14?

Question

Guest Mohammad

Salam,

I am a 14 year old male and wondering if it is 100% required on me to pray. I heard it needs to start at 15, so right now it isn't completely wajib. True?

From the website of Sayed Ali Al Sistani, May Allah prolong his life: 

Question: How is puberty confirmed?

Answer: Puberty in males could be confirmed if one of three signs was present.
1. First: Completion of fifteen lunar calendar years of age (equal to 14 years and seven months and fifteen days of the solar calendar).
2. Second: Ejaculation through sexual intercourse, or seminal discharge while awake or asleep.
3.Third: The presence of pubic hair, of the rough type, similar to head hair.
4. Fourth: The presence of hair on the face and above the lips. 

If Puberty is confirmed then things like Salaat and Fasting become wajib.
(My question here is why does he say three sings but then I see 4 points ? Someone? ) 

https://www.sistani.org/english/book/49/ 

I reccomend and highly advise you to read and try to understand this book. If you have questions, you can always come and post them here. Also think very well and try to get confirmations, do not just believe everything you read on the site. 

Sayed Ali Al Sistani is considered to be / is the most knowledgable and living Marja Grand Ayatollah of our time.  He also approved the book I mentioned

Salam thank you alot,

So I can pray now and it is mustahab but not wajb as I understood correct?

But when I am 15 then salah will be counted on me just like it is on adults right?

Remember it is the lunar calender you should base this on not the solar calender. We have an Islamic calender (Hijri). You can convert here. http://www.islamicity.org/hijri-gregorian-converter/?AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1#

i believe it is like this: if one of the 4 points is true for you, for example point 4, then your puberty is confirmed and you should perform religious duties. 

Ofcourse if you doubt it doesn't harm to start already

Once again I advice you to read the book " Jurispudence made easy ", especially the part about Taqleed

No thanks brother!
