  1. jazakallah, thank you for clarifying this issue dear brother, may Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) give you freshness
  2. Agreed, but the imams (عليه السلام), who have authority over every atom in the universe and hear our invocations do need some weaker attributes of omnipresence then or else how do they even hear us? One of the ulema that i asked about said that whenever we call the imams (عليه السلام) or the prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) for help, then an angel forwards our request to them (عليه السلام) and they (عليه السلام) in turn, pray to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) for the needful. This seems like an okayish explanation but it wasnt backed by the Qur'an or the sunnah so idk how reliable this perspective is
  3. Do we have any authentic hadiths from our books where the Imams (عليه السلام) ask us to invoke them for help or protection (after their death from this world)
  4. JazakAllahu khayran dear brother, you have cleared a lot of misconceptions that were fading my reasoning but last but not least, how limited is the attribute of omnipresence of the imams (عليه السلام)? because there is simply no chance that their omnipresence is at par with Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). so, is it appropriate to say things like, may Mawla (عليه السلام) protect you?
  5. My sincerest of apologies for coming off ambiguous with my query. My understanding of Tawassul would be this (feel free to correct me) "O Allah in the name of x, give me/help me with y" As for istighatha, I see it as calling upon the prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) or the imam (عليه السلام) directly for help without mentioning Allah, for e.g Ya Ali Madad. But just like how you said, they are powerless without the help of Allah. And lastly when I mentioned dua, it was my obliviousness, pardon me, I meant our call for help towards them in the istighatha context for example Ya Ali Madad or Ya Imam Adhikrni. Do they Imams always hear "our call for help" and what if millions invoke them all at once from different regions around the world, are they able to suffice for them and if yes, is that not in contradiction of Allah's (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) attribute of omnipresence?
  6. Assalamu Alaykum everyone, recently I have been having problems comprehending the concept of Istighatha and invoking those saintly entities other than Allah. I have a few questions, 1. Are the imams (عليه السلام) available 24/7, as in, are they omnipresent and always hear the duaas we make to them? 2. If they can hear our duaas, then what if millions supplicate to them at once? Do they hear them all at the same time? 3. Is it not a contradiction that if the imams (عليه السلام) hear millions all at once? Owing to my limited understanding, I believe this is an attribute of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). That's all for now, Salam.
