Do my believing parent who have passed away know that I am now a believer too?


Romans 4:4 - 5

ESV - 4 Now to the one who works, his wages are not counted as a gift but as his due. 5 And to the one who does not work but believes in him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted as righteousness.

My Bible based opinion is that the dead knows nothing (Ecclesiastes 9:5). 

The departed have no knowledge of what is going on under the sun (Ecclesiastes 9:6; Psalm 115:17).

Job tells that the dead sleeps in the grave without any knowledge of what is going on earth (Job 14:12, 21; Psalm 146:4).
