University not allowing one to dress according to Shari’ah and grow a beard

Q: I am currently studying BDS 3rd year in a private college and now I had interest to study Deen but my parent’s are against it they want me to study BDS. While studying BDS I can’t follow Deen because my university doesn’t permit me to have a beard and to raise the lower garments above the ankle and many other issues. So please kindly help me by suggesting a right path. I am very shy to ask this question to my local Imam. Please help me as soon as possible as I am totally helpless waiting for your reply.


A: If the university you are attending does not allow you to keep a beard and wear your pants above the ankles then take admission in another university.

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