It is not
permissible for the family of the deceased to make food and invite people to
come and eat. The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) forbade
that. Jareer ibn ‘Abdullah said: We used to regard gathering with the family

that, you should not have attended this gathering and if you did attend,
then you should have explained to them that this action is not prescribed in
Islam. If they did not respond to you then you should have left the place,

“Whoever among you sees an evil action, then let
him change it with his hand [by taking action]; if he cannot, then with his
tongue [by speaking out]; and if he
cannot, then with his heart – and that is the weakest of faith.”
objecting to evil in the heart is leaving the place where it is happening.
