Obeying one’s mother

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I am passing through a bad phase in life. My mother shows favoratisam between her children. She always hates so in return I disobey her. She prefers my brothers, what should I do in these circumstances? I want to commit suicide. She looks down upon me and teases me. I am an aalima and 25 years old. I feel a block on my heart when I disobey her but what can I do? Am I a sinner? How can I obey her?


A: Obey her and don’t worry about the favouritism. May Allah Ta`ala soften her heart towards you.

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