Are you and your family on the same religious wavelength?
From what I’ve seen it’s kinda rare to see kids and their family on exactly the same religious wavelength…
What’s your family situation like?
Do you ever feel that it’s harder to implement Islam at home and find it easier to do your own thing outside of home?
Do you ever find yourself omitting vital details regarding your whereabouts, cos you know that they won’t approve? Do you ever feel that your parents are an obstacle in your deen?
OR do you come from the sort of family who is a lot more religious then you? Is your mum always telling you to cover up (if you’re a girl) or always telling you to grow a beard (if you’re a guy)….
Are they always trying to force you to go to religious programmes that you don’t want to attend?
OR do you come from an extremely secular minded family…a family that just tells you to focus on your education/career…do you have people in your family telling you to just focus on your “looks, career and meet a nice guy/girl and fall in love”?
Does your family follow different Shaykhs then you? Do you find the teachings they follow full of “biddah and Shirk” or do you find their understanding of the deen too “extreme and strict/rigid”?
How do you deal with differences of opinions in your own home?
Parents are parents…worthy of respect and honour EVEN if they’re in the wrong…at the same time, parents are only human like you and I and are prone to making mistakes… there should be some sort of balance between what you want to do and what your parents want you to do..
Anyways, are you and your family on the same religious wavelength?
