    Walaikum wa rahmatullah,

    There is no scholar in north America, let alone Toronto, but in Toronto we have troid masjid who are connected to our Salafi scholars in Saudi and else. Even every saturday they have class with sheikh zayed al madkhali, even last Saturday they had tele link with sheikh ubaid al Jabari.

    So the sister can connect to troid masjid, and this would be her link to Salafi scholars. This summer we might hav sheikh Mohammad Ramadan al Hajuri again inshallah from Saudi.

    With Allah lies all success.

    Was salaamu alaykum
