Islamic marriage advice and family advice

Tag Archive for ‘Different views’

Torn between being an understanding brother and a loyal son.

We have two people who have conflicting motivation, methods, and life objectives. My brother aspires for a career now, and perhaps later will be a practicing muslim. My father wants my brother to be a practicing muslim now whilst having career aspirations. Now, my brother wants to move out and live separately because our father is sort-of becoming intolerant and forcible about practicing Islam.

When family has different views; how do I get them to understand?

They do not even give him a chance. It hurts me so much. They do not even know any muslims. I know Islam is a peaceful religion, but the media in the usa makes it seem violent. Any suggestions on how to get through to my family??
