Q: I was about seventeen years old and I did not know anything concerning jan?bah, ghusl, and the like. What should I do regarding my prayers and fasts done while being Junub?
A: It is obligatory to repeat all the prayers that you did in the state of jan?bah. However, the fasts that you kept in this state — without knowing any thing about the state of janabah — are correct and sufficient. If you knew that you were Junub but did not know that ghusl is obligatory, you should observe the fasts again. If you did not neglect learning the rules, it is not necessary to pay kaffarah. Otherwise, you should pay it as well according to obligatory caution.
