Q: I would like to ask that I have one friend and he was Hindu. After that he accept Islam and due to heavy pressure of his mother and his family he moved again to Hindu religion. What shall you advise here. Also he really liked Islam and he wants to be a Muslim but his mother told him if you’ll accept Islam, I’ll do suicide. So he was forced to move again to Hindu religion.
A: Politely encourage him and make du`aa for him.
Tell him to practise his Islam secretly without his mother knowing.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
