Q: When I pray at the masjid, my father dont like it and always get angry. When I do tabligh work, he gets angry. When I am ready to go for jamat then my father is agaist it. What can I do? Also, when I pray my qiyamul layl at nigth he fights with me. Must I listen to him or can I carry on doing Allah’s work? Is there any gunnah if I don’t listen to him?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
