Dear Brothers and Sisters
I have a question regarding marriage which I hope you can answer.
My Sister is now of marriage age and my family are now searching for a good husband for her and as she is obviously a female she requires the permission of her Wali to get married. Our father is obviously her wali however he has never looked after us, or given us any financial assistance; it has always been my Mum who did everything for us. My father didn’t fulfil any of his responsibilities as a father we all grew up without his support. He is also very abusive and he has committed many grave sins which I don’t wish to disclose. Anyway my sister doesn’t want our father to remain as her wali and she wants me (her brother) to act as her wali. So she wishes to change her wali, could you tell me how she should go about doing this, what is the procedure for this?
