SHAFAQNA – The Grand Ayatollah Sistani answered a question about compelling children in the issues of Salaat and Hijab.
Question: How far can children be compelled about Salaat and Hijab?
The Grand Ayatollah Sistani: For adults, they must be urged to do good and avoid bad, without permission from religious authority and Wajib precaution, beating or similar acts are not allowed. But can use methods such as stopping some help.
