That is a problem.

That is OK.
This ligature was introduced in early arabic fonts and it's a traditional calligraphic 'letter' so, one expects to see it everywhere, but the two plain letters 'lam' + 'alif' is also readable. There are plenty more ligatures possible in ornate arabic, as in greek for instance.
