Shaykh Saalih Al-Fawzaan was asked


To what extent is obedience to the parents and is it obligatory in every situation?


“Obedience to the parents is in other than the disobedience of Allah. If they order with disobedience [to Allah], then there is no obedience to the creation in the disobedience of Allah:

وَإِنْ جَاهَدَاكَ لِتُشْرِكَ بِي مَا لَيْسَ لَكَ بِهِ عِلْمٌ فَلا تُطِعْهُمَا

But if they strive to make you join with Me (in worship) anything (as a partner) of which you have no knowledge, then obey them not [29:8]
