In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

In order for us to provide an answer please clarify the following points:

  • What do you mean by “maternal sister”?
  • What do you mean by an illegal marriage?
  • Do you have a problem with the Alim?
  • Why do the people want that Alim to perform Salah?
