Q: I would like to know what is the Islamic ruling of elder members in the family going against a parents rules for her child, out in the open as well as behind the parents back?
A: The father has the right to guide and advise his children. It is not right for other members of the family to disregard him.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
