Asalaam Aleikum Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I am Muslim and I married a lady who was Christian but she accepted to convert to Islam, her mother (my mother inlaw) before she got married she was Muslim but she became a Christian because of her husband is Christian.
The question is: According to Quran or hadiths, am I allowed to give any help to the mother inlaw? I’m scared because she’s Murtad ( she left faith of Islam).
Wa `alaykum As-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.
You should be good to her in worldly matters while not complying with her demands if they are contrary to the teachings of Islam.
That is what we learn from the following verse in the Quran:
“We have commanded people to be good to their parents: their mothers carried them, with strain upon strain, and it takes two years to wean them. Give thanks to Me and to your parents- all will return to Me If they strive to make you associate with Me anything about which you have no knowledge, then do not obey them. Yet keep their company in this life according to what is right, and follow the path of those who turn to Me. You will all return to Me in the end, and I will tell you everything that you have done.” (Luqman 31: 14-15)
Almighty Allah knows best.
