Assalmualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,
I’m 14 years old and I’m wondering if I have to go to the Masjid. Is this mandatory upon me? At what age do children become men in Islam? Salah Al Isha is late at night and the Masjid is 15-20 minutes away from my house. Me parents fear for my well being. Can I pray at home?
Wa `alaykum As-Salamu waRahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.
If you have reasons to be fearful of your safety when going out to the mosque for Prayer, then you are allowed to pray at home.
That is a valid excuse for you to pray at home.
If, however, the situation improves, and there is no reason to fear, you should start going to the mosque for Prayer.
Almighty Allah Knows best.
