Salam Alaikum,

My daughter is 11 years old and she wears hijab and she prays namaz,
but sometimes I feel she lies to me and says she has done the Wazu and she
quickly goes to stand for prayers. I dont know if she is praying or just
standing there pretending to act like praying. Since girls are not allowed
to say their prayers loudly , how can I be sure she is praying or not. what
is my obligation as a parent? Should I just trust her and be quiet. I make
her pray loudly sometimes to make sure she is doing it right but I dont know
if she is pretending to pray or not. The reason I became doubtful is once
when I caught her praying without wazu and when I asked her if she did wazu
she said she did when she had not, and then when I told her that she will be
grounded if she lies to me, she confessed that she did not do her wazu.

Could you please let me know what to do. My daughter and I are in taqleed of
Imam Khumaini.

Wa Alaikum As-Salaam,

Of course, I cannot give you an opinion of Imam Khomeini on such a issue. I
can say that it is allowed for a woman to vocalize her recitation when
there is no chance of a non-Mahram hearing her voice. Therefore, you could
ask her to pray aloud where allowed. As far as praying without Wudhoo' is
concerned, trust and incentives may work best. Otherwise, it's difficult to
know for certain. Allah knows better.
