Being forbidden to pray by a relative

Q 2: What should a daughter do if she wants to offer Salah (Prayer) but fears that her intolerant, disbelieving father will beat and insult her? Note that she is blind and in need of his help.

A: This woman has to offer Salah according to her ability; if she can perform Wudu' (ablution), she should do so. If she cannot, she may perform Tayammum (dry ablution) and offer Salah. She is not permitted to abandon Salah at all, or to obey her father in this regard. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "There is no obedience to a creature in a matter involving disobedience to the Creator." May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
