Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam
Question: Assalam ‘aleykum,
1-Is it permissible to supplicate & recite Quran for non-muslim family members?
2-Also is it permissible to attend a cremation it being a family member?
I pray that this message finds you well, insha’Allah.
(1) Yes, it is permitted to supplicate and recite Qur’an (with the intention of cure) for living non-Muslims, yet not the deceased. (see: Can We Pray for Non-Muslims Who Passed Away?)
(2) Yes, you can attend as long as the funeral is free from any specifically religious activity. (see: Is a Memorial Service for a Non-Muslim Permissible in Islam?)
And Allah alone knows best.
