A Sister Leaves School to Avoid Free Mixing and Parents Are Unhappy

Question: A sister has recently started practicing Islaam, however she faces much trials with her family at home. She stopped her Psychology degree due to free mixing and sometimes being alone with her male tutor. It has made her parents unhappy. Is it permissible to resume her degree to please her parents? Also, how do you advise that she deals with her family?

Answer: It is upon all Muslims whether male or female, to be keen on being kind and beneficent to their parents. This is what Allaah تبارك وتعالى ordered with in surah al-'Ankaboot:

وَوَصَّيْنَا الْإِنسَانَ بِوَالِدَيْهِ حُسْناً
{And We have enjoined on man to be good and dutiful to his parents'} [al-'Ankaboot 29:8]

And in surah Luqmaan, Allaah تعالى says:

وَوَصَّيْنَا الْإِنسَانَ بِوَالِدَيْهِ حَمَلَتْهُ أُمُّهُ وَهْناً عَلَى وَهْنٍ
{And We have enjoined on man (to be dutiful and good) to his parents. His mother bore him in weakness and hardship upon weakness and hardship'} [Luqmaan 31:14]

However, if the parent orders a Muslim to disobey Allaah or with a form of disobedience to Allaah, then there is no obedience to the parent in this case due to the saying of the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم: "There is no obedience to the creation in disobedience to the Creator."[1]
