Yes exactly. This is very minimal that laymen Shias do tawassul to them only for the worldly things.

Ones ultimate value lies in how much one have abstained from sins and more so how much ones broken the chains of worldly desires. Because it's this sins and worldly desires that keeps one away from devine proximity. Otherwards ones devine proximity and closeness Allah depends on how much one have freed himself from low desires of nafs. And it's for which imams and Awlias were. 

Not for fullfillin ones desires of nafs or lower self. So using or believing in Awlias of Allah to be source of fullfillig ones desires is gross ignorance .

May Allah help us to follow quran, prophet puh and Awlias in true sense

First of Shia's don't believe in that. SOME do. Second of all Sidnaq, read what he/she said:

"course not literally" Does not change the fact that it is shirk. Saying it's not Allah and doing it by the will of Allah ALSO does not change the fact that this is shirk.

You say it is shirk because you do not get the purpose. Yes if one says that Rasulullah is the hand of Allah, or eye of Allah, this can be shirk, depends on the meaning. There is a famous hadith in the books of Sunnies that Shias also agree with. I do not know how they ignore this hadith !

We should not simply condemn people to shirk akbar without investigating what they truly mean.

 

"My servant draws not near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have enjoined upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I shall love him.

"When I love him I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes and his foot with which he walks.

"Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him, and were he to ask Me for refuge, I would surely grant him it.
I do not hesitate about anything as much as I hesitate about [seizing] the soul of My faithful servant: he hates death and I hate hurting him."


It is narrated by al-Bukhari.

To prove that this concept can be found also in Sunni literature, making it crucial for Shi'as and Sunnis to believe on it because of its authentic. Also it is not shirk. The person doesn't become part of God nor he is partner with Him.

@Dhulfikaar.

This tradition is both Shia and sunni books. And scholars have declared it Authentic. And according to Shia Arifs it the stage of   sincerety and Anihillation in Allah  and he becomes the manifestation of atributes of Allah. So it is beyond access of even scholars, how can we express it.

True, I agree with it. But I believe the true followers of Ahlulbait (as) may have some degree of it.

Don't think that imams have chosen  for fullfing wishes or for giving wealth. 

 

I understand Imams as Imams, not like the magic lamp of Alladin.

Although, I do believe they can fulfil wishes & can give wealth to anyone they wish because they are the chosen ones of the One we know as "Malik-ul-Mulk".

Surah An-Nisa, Verse 54:

أَمْ يَحْسُدُونَ النَّاسَ عَلَىٰ مَا آتَاهُمُ اللَّهُ مِن فَضْلِهِ فَقَدْ آتَيْنَا آلَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَآتَيْنَاهُم مُّلْكًا عَظِيمًا

Or do they envy the people for what Allah has given them of His grace? But indeed We have given to Ibrahim's children the Book and the wisdom, and We have given them a grand kingdom.

(English - Shakir)

They can give , I do not deny . Even Allah can give. So what. Even ordinary person having wealth can give wealth and money to others.

i keep forgetting how common it is among Shias to endorse the practice of praying to others than Allah. There seems to be more support for this notion on this thread than against it.

Also, things like the imam 'managing' all affairs of the creations

So what if there is a hadith? You also bring me a hadith from the Sunni's as if it will strengthen your case... I won't bring any sources yet, very powerful sources to swallow but let me start off by making you think...So if Ahlul Bayt a.s. can fulfill wishes, give wealth, control the universe like some say, decide who goes to heaven and hell...even worse, the names of Allah manifests them like one person said ....What is left? How are they different than Allah aza wa jal?!?! Don't give me the typical  "by the will" of Allah answer which so far I haven't had a person back it up.

@Salsabeel.

What is difference if Allah will give wealth and money to me. 

Or Imam as will give wealth to me. 

Or Ordinary person having enough  wealth will give to me. 

 

In all cases you have to offer thanks to Almighty because He is the one who makes others wasila for you. Allah is Raziq as per our belief.

How He distributes the rizq is a matter tadabbur. He can make wasila to anyone.

So if an ordinary man helps you, you need to see who is it, who put this idea in the heart of this man to give his wealth to me. 

There are some intresting events in Islamic history, for instance, look at this asbab e nazool of following verse:

Surah Al-Maeda, Verse 55:

إِنَّمَا وَلِيُّكُمُ اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا الَّذِينَ يُقِيمُونَ الصَّلَاةَ وَيُؤْتُونَ الزَّكَاةَ وَهُمْ رَاكِعُونَ

Only Allah is your Vali and His Apostle and those who believe, those who keep up prayers and pay the poor-rate while they bow.

(English - Shakir)

Are we allowed to give zakah during prayers? How was the salah of these Murtaza servants of Allah?

:) It surprises me!

The angels descend with the amr or they descend to take the amr? 

Where, on whom the angels descend?

First of All Imam Ali a.s. gave zakat and not Rizq there is a difference.

Second of All the verse is talking about the Angels.

That is OK. 

Help other than Allah doesn't exist. And believing imam or ordinary person to be idipendent helper and forgetting Allah constitutes concealed shrik.

Some of what you listed are ghulat beliefs or misunderstand statements. 

What do you understand by "manifesting" throught them?

:) Zakat can be the source of someone's rizq. This doesn't make Imam Ali "Raziq". Lets see another example, since you're more focusing on rizq:

Surah Al-Insan, Verse 9:

إِنَّمَا نُطْعِمُكُمْ لِوَجْهِ اللَّهِ لَا نُرِيدُ مِنكُمْ جَزَاءً وَلَا شُكُورًا

We only feed you for Allah's sake; we desire from you neither reward nor thanks:

(English - Shakir)
