Question: Assalam ‘aleykum,

What should a woman do when she is out with her parents and they have forbidden her to wear the hijab?

Answer: Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah,

I pray that this message finds you well, insha’Allah.

She should ask Allah Most High for facilitation, and put on the hijab. There is no obedience to creation in disobedience to the Creator.
