Hardships in applying the Sunnah

Q 1: We are young people from Ahl-ul-Sunnah wal-Jama`ah (adherents to the Sunnah and the Muslim mainstream), praise be to Allah. We face some difficulties when we call our parents to apply the Sunnah (whatever is reported from the Prophet). Many young people cannot apply the Sunnah (Part No. 2; Page No. 326) for fear of their fathers. What is the ruling on this?

A: You have to adhere to the Sunnah, acquire useful knowledge, show patience during suffering in Allah's Cause, and call your parents and other people to apply the Sunnah. We hope that Allah (Exalted be He) will guide people at your hands. Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said: "If Allah guides aright even one man through you, that is better for you than to possess the most valuable of the camels. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
