Attending funerals of non-Muslim relatives

Q: We are not allowed to attend non-Muslims funeral, so how do we arrange or attend a funeral of a relative if we are Muslim converted to Islam and our family are not Muslim ?

A: You may offer your condolence. However, you should not participate in any funeral ceremony.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
