A young woman recently asked for some advice after a family argument about her religion. Here’s what happened.

A 16-year-old lived with her father, who had been brought up as a Muslim but no longer had any religion at all.

The young woman’s mother also had no religion, but the difference was that she hadn’t been brought up in a religious household. The young woman said, “I’m quite similar to my mom.”

She had a new stepmom

About three years ago, the young woman’s parents split up, and her father remarried. She and her stepmother got along fine, apart from one thing: her religion (or lack thereof).

She was very strict

The young woman said, “She and her side of the family are very religious and quite strict in how they practice. They’re very conservative and quite inflexible when it comes to others around them.”

They kept having arguments

The young woman and her stepmother kept arguing about the fact that the girl didn’t want to have any kind of religion. Her stepmom said it reflected badly on her when it came to the community, and the family would have a better reputation if she just started practicing again.

The young woman heard what her stepmom was saying, but she refused to change her mind.

She didn’t see the problem

The young woman had many friends with various beliefs, and none of them were bothered about what anyone else practiced, so she couldn’t see what her stepmother was so worried about.

The young woman’s step-grandmother paid the family a visit and told them she wanted to throw a big party. She told them they were all invited and it was going to be a fun event.

She had some requests

However, the young woman’s step-grandmother did have some specific requests. The young woman said, “She looked at me and said modest Islamic clothing only.”

The girl didn’t agree

The young girl told her step-grandmother that she would wear what she wanted and not stick to a dress code she didn’t believe in.

The young woman’s step-grandmother wouldn’t back down and told the young girl that if she didn’t wear what she’d been asked to wear, then she wouldn’t be allowed in the house.

She refused to come

At that, the young woman said she wouldn’t attend the party; she didn’t want to be somewhere she wasn’t welcome.

They were all uninvited

Since the step-grandmother decided that it was “the kind of party where the whole family comes or none of them come”, everyone was uninvited.

There didn’t seem to be an end to the arguing, and it was becoming increasingly heated, so the young woman called her mom and got picked up, and she hasn’t spoken to the rest of her family since.

Was she wrong?

Was the young girl wrong to go against her step-grandmother’s wishes, or would it have been better to do as she was told and keep the peace?

The internet responded

One person said, “You handled this perfectly. I don’t think you could have avoided the confrontation.”

Another person said, “If she’s going to force her religious ideals on party attendees, she shouldn’t be surprised when some people don’t want to come.”
