What is the ruling on those who embrace Islam while their parents are still polytheists who worship idols until they die? Is it permissible for their Muslim son to participate in washing and burying them?
What is the ruling if the son participates in washing and burying them and other ceremonies of the non-Muslims? What should a Muslim son do after these acts?
As a general rule, when a Kafir (Disbeliever) dies, their relatives should hide their corpse in a hole so that people will not be harmed by them. Neither Janazah (Funeral) Prayer should be performed for them nor they should be washed or shrouded. Anyone who does differently or participates with the non-Muslims in their habits, should repent and ask for Allah's forgiveness. We hope that Allah will accept his repentance.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
