Can a brother who doesn’t pray, makes mockery and debates some things of the religion out of ignorance, be a wali in marriage for his daughter or his sister?
Shaikh Waleed Boghdady:
The main point here is not if he is eligible to be a wali or not, rather that he is in a very dangerous situation, as this could be disbelief, so your concern now should be to ask a knowledgeable person to explain and to clarify these things to this brother, do not leave him as he is now.
As for if he is eligible to be a wali or not:
If he is ignorant and no one explained to him that this is kuffr, then he can be a wali until the proof is established against him, which is that a person of knowledge explains to him and gives proofs to him.
If after this, he refuses the proofs and he persists on mocking the religion, then he is a kaffir, so accordingly he is not allowed to be a wali.
