    Title: when does the fasting become obligatory for a girl ?

    Question: I started menstruation from an early age of 11 years. Was fasting mandatory for me from such an early age? Actually now I am fulfilling Qaza fasting and hence confused from what age I shall calculate all the missed fasting. Please guide me.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 350/358/L=03/1436) You turned adult after you experienced menstruation and fasting was obligatory on you from then. You shall make qaza of your fasts from that time. قال فى الدر المختار: بلوغ الغلام بالاحتلام والاحبال والانزال والأصل هوالإنزال والجارية بالاحتلام والحيض والحبل..... (درمختار مع الشامى: 9/225)
