A mother forbidding her son from learning about Islam

Q 1: What is the ruling on a person whose mother forces him to give up learning Islam but he refuses? Is he a sinner? What should he do?

A: It is dutiful to obey your mother and treat her kindly in word and deed. However, you should not leave learning Islam in obedience to her. You should learn the individual obligations and work accordingly. You should also call to these teachings and bear the hardships you may encounter. You are not to be blamed for disobeying your mother in her wish for you to leave the learning of Islamic teachings.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
