Understanding one’s priorities

Q: A young girl is due to give birth anytime inshallah. After birth she’s set to go to her parents home for her confinement. Now she receives the news that her parents will be going out in masturaat jamaat. This young girl was sad and depress and pleaded for them not to go now and may be go on another occasion but they would not listen. When they will be away the girls aunties and sister will take care of her. There family members are from other towns though, causing them to leave their respected husbands and children to take care of her needs. Will this be correct or what should be done?


A: It is better for them to take care of their child and if the jamaat could allow that the child be taken care of it will save all problems.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
