This questioner from Britain says; I have been accepted at the Islamic University of Madinah – and all praise is due to ﷻ Allāh, however my father prohibits me from going to Madinah since he considers studying Islam a waste of time, he says he will absolve himself from me if I were to go. He asked; how do I deal with my father who doesn’t even pray nor does he give any importance to matters of the religion?

Shaykh Ṣāliḥ ibn Fawzān al-Fawzān:

Do not obey him. Go study and learn. He is ordering you with sin and not obedience, and there is no obedience to the creation that involves disobedience to the creator.
