Salam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu


Is it allowed for me to go to Iran, Lebanon or Iraq to study Islam even if

my parents do not give permission.

My parents are no Muslims.






In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful


The duty of a child towards his parents is of two kinds:


The First: To be kind towards them by providing for them, if they are in

need. To provide for their day-to-day needs. To respond to their requests

that are related to their daily lives at a level that is normal and usual

for a human being, in the sense that if he refuses to fulfill them, it would

be regarded as “not being good to them” — and that would differ depending on

whether they are healthy and strong or ill and weak.


The Second: To behave towards them kindly, by not offending them in word or

action, even if they are unjust to him. In some religious text, it says,

“And if they hit you, do not shun them; instead say, ‘May Allãh forgive



This is as far as it relates to the parents’ situation. As for those issues

concerning the affairs of the child himself by which he could offend one of

the parents, these are of two kinds:


The First: If the parent’s distress results from his concern for the child,

it is forbidden for the child to do something that would distress his

parent, irrespective of whether or not the parent has prevented him from it.



The Second: If the parent’s distress results from of his own evil

characteristics (for example, dislike for the good of this world or the

hereafter for his child), this kind of distress has no bearing on the child,

thus, it is not obligatory on the child to submit to this kind of desires.


It becomes clear from this that, on its own, obeying the parents in their

personal commands is not obligatory. And Allãh knows the best.


Wassalamu Alaykum
