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?


A: Do your namaaz as usual, but do the qiyaamul layl secretly so that he does not discover it and perhaps you can engage in the local jamaat work.

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