Cannot pursue college studies due to conservative parents, unable to focus

Asked by Female, 17, Single
Hi. Can you help me. I finished my schooling, but I'm not allowed for college. Parents are so religious, they ask me to go to Islamic school. And I'm getting married next year. I really want to be like other girls, and I'm doing my correspondence course in nutrition and dietetics, and medical transcription in online. I always don't get mood to study, just because of free wi-fi, I always want to watch movies. And I cry everynight thinking about my life. Help me

Greetings,This is an issue, which you need to take a stance and make sure that your voice is heard, because I need one person in Gujarat, who after one of my session came up to and told me the same thing that, she needs to study further, but her family is also staunch in their religious views. That is where I told following the religious views is an essential key. It is mentioned in the holy Quran as well:It was narrated that Anas bin Mlik said: The Messenger of Allah said Seeking knowledge is a duty upon every Muslim. (Sunan Ibn e Majah, Book of Sunnah, Hadith no 224, Classified as Sahih By Allama Albani)So I suggest you put it forth to your parents, that The Holy Quran asks me to be well-equipped Knowledge wise and for that you need to go through Education. Also At the age of 17, Yousafzai was the youngest Nobel Prize recipient ever. She was also the second Pakistani and first ethnic Pashtun to be awarded a Nobel Prize. All that was possible with a calm and 'Can do' attitude.Please pursue the quest for Knowledge, no matter what.Thanks.
