Attending western universities;listening to parents

Question ID: 29858

Assalamu alaikum.

1)For a Muslim male,is it permissible to attend western universities in Europe,America etc where there is a lot of immorality and falling into sin is so easy? I know that some Ulama have said its Haraam to attend these universities as there is a lot of Fitna,what is your view?

2)If parents want me to attend such a university,and I refuse,am I sinning or not?

3)If I want to obtain any Halal source of livelihood be it a job or a business,and my parents want me to do something else,do I have to obey them or not?

1) If a Muslim cannot control and does not have discipline then one must avoid and resort to home studies.

2) You will not be sinning.

3) It is good to sit and make Mashwara then make decision. They cannot force you to do something Un-Islaamic.
