May peace be upon you
I really really want to wear the Niqab but this is the problem
My mother doesn't want me to because we live in california and she thinks non muslims will treat me bad and yell at me and so on.
I dont know what my dad would want me to do yet because he is in UAE right now (my parents are not divorced my dad is just picking up my cousin so she can come live with us)
The thing is that it would be better if people gave me a hard time about wearing the niqab because then It would make me a stronger muslim and guide me closer to Allah (swt).
So my question is . . What should I do? Listen to my mom even though I really really really want to wear the niqab. Disobey her even though I know childen should never disobey there parents? My mom also says that I am not ready but I feel so confident that I am and inshallah Allah will make me stronger if I get weak. Is she right? Or should I just wait untill my dad gets back and see what he says?
Please help me. (and I'm so sorry that this is so long)
I'm so sorry if I'm acting selfish because I know there are plenty of people with non muslim parents who give them a really hard time about everything they do. May Allah bless them in the hereafter and make things easier
when they are older.
