It has been ordered in the Quran to seek Help from Salat and Sabr and it's tafsir Sabr refers to Rasool Allah saww and Salat refers to Ali a.s.
Seek aid by patience and prayer, and truly it is a hard thing save for the humble.
And His saying Seek aid by patience and prayer, and truly it is a hard thing save for the humble. The humble: the servile in his prayers, the coming (?) upon them, meaning: The Messenger of Allah saww and `Ali a.s.
I know you will argue with (?) but remember that there are many ahadees and in a khutba Moula Ali a.s. while refering to this ayat said: As Sabro Mohammadun Wa Salaato Wilayati.
And there is upon people regarding Iyyaka Nabudu wa iyyaka nastaeen. And let me tell you that among other tafasir we also have a tafseer "Nastaeeno be wilayate Ameerul Momineen"
Muhammad b. Ibrahim b. Ishaq al Taleqani narrated to us; he said: Ahmad b. Muhammad b. Saeed, slave of Bani Hashim informed us from `Ali b. al Hasan b. `Ali b. Faddaal from his father, who said: I asked al Rida, `Ali b. Musa about Bismillah
He said: The saying of the one who says In the Name of Allah is this: I imprint upon my self a trait from the traits of Allah, Mighty and Majestic be He, and this is worship. He said: So I said to him: And what is samah (trait)? He said: The symbol.
^^^ See that Symbol; by saying Ya Ali Madad we only mean Bismillah hir Rahman Nir Raheem as he a.s. is also a symbol. For this you need to do a proper open-minded research with intention of understanding rather than fault finding. And remember, it is Allah azwj who helps in everything big or small and is not tired helping, helps all His creation even if they call Him at the same time and He is the one who Wills, Orders, gets angry, gets Happy, talks, listens, sees and so on so forth.....................and pay attention, read it again the bold part and if you dont understand read it all your life. Maybe perchance you may reflect.
