Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

My wife was hindu before our nikkah, she is a true muslim now. I want to know wether she can make dua for her parents who r still hindu for their health and well being who are ill to allah. If not then how can i explain her that bcz she have feelings for her parents like we all true muslims have.She has also tried converting them to muslims but unfortunately didnt succeeded. what shall i tell her she understands they r non believers but she says how can she see them bad as they r her parents.

Answer

The love for parents is natural and Islam has considered that. If one’s
parents are alive and non-Muslims, it is permissible to make dua for them as
well as serve them without compromising one’s Islamic values. The situation
should be viewed as an opportunity to be kind to them, serve them and wisely
invite them to Islam.

and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
