I was born and raised Christian. However I found Islam and became a Muslim. I am having a slight issue, my mum is against Islam and she doesn’t know I became Muslim. Whenever I ask her if she would allow me to be a Muslim, she says no. I know in Islam we have to respect parents, so am I disrespecting my mum by being Muslim without her approval?

Yes we are requires to show respected to our parents even if they are not Muslim. However, this doesn’t apply to obligations. Obeying God comes before obeying our parents. You are not disrespecting your mother by being Muslim. It is your right to be Muslim. Yes, if she gets upset over that, just try your best to show her kindness and soften her heart. But you don’t need her approval to be a Muslim
