Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu

It is not permissible to call out to the dead for any kind of help or assistance.[1]
Such an act constitutes kufr and the implications of that are major. If a person is married his marriage terminates. He will have to make tawba and renew his Imaan and Nikah. If he does not do that, his relationship with his wife will be an adulterous one. If his “wife” conceives in that stage and gives birth, the child will be illegitimate.

And Allah Ta’ala knows best
