Q: I am a 18 year old male, and I want to join the Canadian Forces. From an Islamic perspective can my parents stop me from joining the military? Please note I am joining the military in the finance department and will not be in any combat situation, and will not be harming and killing anyone.
A: Obey your parents. If they are not happy with you doing this job then take on some other work.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
