Hadith Explanation

No Obedience in Sin

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “There must be no obedience in respect of sin. Verily, obedience is intended for good things only.” [Sahih Bukhari]

Although Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) has enjoined obedience towards parents, the husband, and the ruler of the Muslims, nevertheless, nobody has the right to be obeyed in preference to Allah (subhana wa ta’ala). In other words, if obedience to any human being, system or law entails disobedience of Allah and His Messenger, then such obedience must be rejected.

Allah Most High is the One who created us, gave us life, gave us parents and spouses and enjoined their rights on us. Therefore, we obey them for the sake of obeying Allah Most High. To obey them by neglecting what Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) requires us to do is to doom ourselves forever. It is to Allah that we will return and it is Him to Whom we will be held accountable for the way we lived this life.
