Hadith Explanation

No Obedience in Disobedience to Allah

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: "There is no obedience to the creation in disobedience to the Creator." [Ahmed and Haakim]

If a father and son sleep in one place, and the son wants to pray fajr but his father sleeps, does anyone suggest that the son needs to take permission from his father to pray the obligatory prayer? Suppose that the father forbids his son from performing the prayer, should the son obey his father? The answer is clear according to the above mentioned hadith, as well as the following one:

"Obedience is in what is right." [Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim]

Therefore, it is clear that no permission is required for anyone from anyone when an act is fard ayn (individual obligation), just as no permission is required from the father, the husband or the ruler for the obligatory fajr prayer.
