Question
As-salamu alaykum

I am a revert to Islam from Hinduism. Married a Hindu girl due to family pressure and also foolishly thinking that I would be able to revert her to Islam, she did not... and the marriage ended up in a divorce.

Now ready to oppose all my family members and marry a Muslim girl. I am in talks with a nice Muslim family.

I am the only son to my parents who are still Hindus, if my father dies before me, I would have to perform the Hindu rituals. Will try to pass on the responsibility to other family members, but when the moment comes am not sure how the events will unfold. Emotions could run high within the family, there could be pandemonium and chaos.

Told the situation to the members of the Muslim family with whom I am in talks with. They are not ready to accept this, which is very understandable from their point of view.

If at all I do such an ritual, what is Islams stand on that, I do feel though in my heart that Allah will understand because my parents have done so much for me, trying their best to make me a good human being.
