Should he obey his father and give up his studies in order to work in business?

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
A son registered in a college to study, but his father does not approve of that, and he wants his son to work in business and not study. Does the son have the right to disobey his father or should he obey him and give up his studies?.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.

The son should combine two good deeds, by both seeking knowledge and helping his father in his business. If his father insists on forcing his son to give up seeking knowledge and work in business, then he may not obey him in that and this is not considered to be disobedience towards his father. 

And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. End quote. 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
