Question : #703 Category: Youth Issues
Subject: Practicing Islam
Question: Assalamu Alaikum,

I am from a muslim family. I was ignorant about Islam a year ago, but Alhamdulillah now studying about Islam and trying to follow it at my level best. I am now dressing up the Islamic way, i am growing beard, wearing pants higher than my TAKHNU and so on. I am also spending a healthy time of my day studying Islam. The problem is my father thinks i am being obsessive about Islam. He thinks it is too early(22 years of age)for me to keep beard. For this, i wont get any job. He fears that the secular police of our county will arrest me accusing of being a terrorist(As beard is a sign of terrorism in our country. He also thinks studying Islam will hamper my normal academic study. He says I have to obey my Father and it is fard for me to do so. He is telling me to cut the beard and spend a very little time in studying Islam and concentrate more on my academic one. He suggests that after getting a job and getting married, i can carry on the study and keep beard.

Now what will i do? will i cut my beard and stop studying about Islam to follow my Father as it is fard for me? Is it allowed to leave any other fard or wajib to follow another fard? Please clarify. I am in severe mental pressure.

Jazakallah Khair
