Being forced to attend a khatam

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: My family has a katham every year, the changing of the flags. I know it’s not as per the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) teachings, and it’s innovation. But I’m forced to do it, as I will get shouted at.

Please advise, am I sinning if I do the katham? I tried to refuse previously and I got swearing. They don’t understand it’s not as per the sunnah and I’m living under their roof. So I’m basically forced to do it. What do I do?

Bismillaah

A: Do the khatam at your own time and at your own place.

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