He wants to make Hijrah to the Muslim world but his parents refuse

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
My question is: what should one who ardently desires to perform Hijrah (from daarul kufr) but his parents prevent him from making it and they do not intend to do so either? Can he perform Hijrah on his own, that is, is he allowed to leave his parents in considering the lesser of two evils as well as obeying the Creator in disobedience to the creation?

Praise be to Allaah.

We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen, who replied that if the parents need their son, and he is able to practise Islam openly in the kaafir country where they live, it is permissible for him to remain there. And Allaah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
