Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. For the last 17 years of my marriage a question has remained unsolved for me. I hope to have an answer from you. My question is this: one of my wife’s paternal uncles claims that he can contact the departed soul of a shahid (martyr) who was killed hundreds of years ago and that he can get any work done by this departed soul. He claims that everything is done in accordance with the Qur’an and Sunnah. Can you comment on this?
