Is it allowed to live seprately from Parents.

14 Nov 2023 Ref-No#: 5537

Assalam-O-Alaikum. My name is Ahmed Hassan. I live with my family.However I am not fitting anyhow into my family which is leading into severe fights continously no matter how much I try to avoid,no matter how much silent I became. I have tried alot but due to my Parents limiting me from almost everything my confidence have became 0 and I have fell into depression.My mental health is badly affected as I am supposed to listen to my parents and obey them.I want to move and live in seprate house because that way I will be able to become independent but my parents say they will abandon me forever if I will leave the house.So Will I be sinful if I shift into other house? Please answer my question.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Wa ‘alaykum us-salāmu wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Dear son,
May Allah ease your affairs, protect you from all ailments physical, mental and spiritual.

It is difficult to answer from the little information that you shared. Pray two rakats nafl istikhara prayers. Consult other elders from the family. Take your age and all your circumstances into consideration then decide.

Life is not easy, especially when one is on his own.

Parental love is selfless and unconditional and their insight is invaluable. Listen to them , obey them, be there for them when they need you and your life will be filled with barakah Parents have rights over you.

But so has your own Self. Parents should provide their children with a safe, loving space and healthy boundaries.

If it’s possible go away for studies / work and be available for them when they need you, it might relax the atmosphere a bit.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
