Living with non-Muslim in laws

Q: I am a Muslim and the man I want to marry became a Muslim 2 years ago. His family are Hindu and want us to live with them.

Is it permissible to live with people who have idols in their house and worship them even if their part of the house has been sectioned off so that there are two separate living areas?

Is it permissible for us to live there even though they drink wine?

Is it permissible for me to show my hair to my Hindu father and mother in law?

If the husband can afford to live separately, should this be the option he takes?

A: It is permissible, but we strongly discourage this. You cannot rule off their influences.

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