Parental Pressure – Tips for Teenaged Girls


  • Are your parents planning to get you married off to someone you DON’T like?
  • Are they planning to stop you from acquiring further education?
  • Are they planning to stop you from working?

Listen up, girls!

It’s not necessary to get into a fight with your family members, or depressed over their decisions. They will always want the best for you!

Speak up
There’s no harm in doing so, but be wise. Use your words carefully. Be gentle, and lay out your reasons on the table clearer than a logarithmic table! (You know it looks ugly when girls start shouting, and getting angry).

Be patient
“Oh you who believe! Seek help with patient perseverance and prayer, for God is with those who patiently persevere.” (Al-Baqarah 2:153)

Keep praying!
Sometimes, no matter how much we speak, it doesn’t work. Always remember only Allah (swt) can change people’s minds! Don’t ever undermine the power of Duas, and pour your heart out to Allah (swt).

May Allah (swt) give us what’s best for us! Ameen!
