New convert and family harrassment

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


If Allah Subhanah has bestowed His Mercy on one of his slaves and guided them Islam, there is absolutely no harm if temporarily the person hides their faith from their guardians, especially if they fear that they might be harassed or oppressed because of their faith. But if one has declared and announced one’s belief in Allah and His Last Messenger (saws) to their family, even if they bring a mountain of threats and calamities, it does not behove a believer to turn to disbelief after their Lord Most Merciful has guided them to Islam. They should remain steadfast in their faith and either bear the atrocities with patience, or separate from them in peace.


Allah Says in His Glorious Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verses 23-24:

23 O ye who believe! Take not for protectors your fathers and your brothers if they love infidelity above faith: if any of you do so they do wrong.

24 Say: ‘If it be that your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your mates, or your kindred, the wealth that ye have gained, the commerce in which ye fear a decline, or the dwellings in which ye delight, are dearer to you than Allah and His Messenger or the striving in His Cause; then wait until Allah brings about His decision: and Allah guides not the rebellious.


Your Questions: What are the legal implication to get out of herresment from there parents? What are the legal way to seprate with there parents?

If the harassment and oppression of parents or guardians of the sister are unbearable, and the sister is an adult, there is absolutely no harm if she decides to separate herself from them until they accept the decision she has made to accept and follow Islam; or alternatively she could seek to marry a good righteous believing brother who will give her the honor and respect she deserves. But under no circumstances, regardless of how much oppression and tyranny the disbelievers may break upon a believer, they are not to disbelieve after Allah has guided them to Islam.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 31 Surah Luqman verses 14-15:

14 And We have enjoined on man (to be good) to his parents: in travail upon travail did his mother bear him and in years twain was his weaning: (hear the command) "Show gratitude to Me and to thy parents: to Me is (thy final) Goal.

15 But if they strive to make you join in worship with Me things of which thou hast no knowledge, obey them not; Yet bear them company in this life with justice (and consideration) and follow the way of those who turn to Me: in the End the return of you all is to Me and I will tell you the truth (and meaning) of all that ye did.


We want to clarify here that even if the sister is forced to separate herself because of the oppression and harassment of her parents/guardians, she should never break her relations with them, but rather Islam guides that at all times she should respect and honor the blood-ties which Allah has created and, regardless of their attitude towards her, she at all times must deal with them in kindness and justice.


Your Question: thirdly, is this possible she can claim her lawfull property (hissa) ? how?

The heirs can only claim inheritance after the death of their relatives; thus it is neither possible nor permissible in Islam for a believer to claim inheritance from his/her parents while they are still alive.


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


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
