My parents in-law are non-muslims (Hindu).
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum 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:
As salam alaikum!
My parents in-law are non-muslims (Hindu), me and my wife have got them to our place to stay along with us so that they come to know about Islam and eventually invite them to Islam. Is it ok if they stay with us? Because they still pray to idols in their bedroom and we offer salah & recite Quran in ours. Please advice.

In laws hindus worship
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
If one invites pagans to their house with the sole purpose of committing shirk or worshipping idols, etc…..that indeed would be a grave sin in the Sight of Allah Subhanah. But if one invites non-muslim friends or families to their homes with the intention to introduce them to the Truth of Islam, and they happen to worship their idols in their own private quarters while staying there, the one’s who invite them are absolutely blameless and free from their ‘shirk’.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
