Why do people say "maula salamat rakhay"? (may Mawla protect you) Is it not shirk? Because it is only Allah who can protect us and the Imams (عليه السلام) themselves prayed to Allah for their protection then why is it that we ask them for our protection instead of Allah? I've only seen shias in the subcontinent say it and so it sounds like a cultural practice.

fyi, They are Not Dead to us. We do have a Living Imam(عليه السلام) - Mawla.

Imam Mahdi (aj) says,

"Surely, we do not neglect your condition nor are we forgetful of your remembrance. Had it not been so, then, terrible calamities would have struck you and your enemies would have destroyed you."2

:bismillah:

ثُمَّ رُدُّواْ إِلَى اللّهِ مَوْلاَهُمُ الْحَقِّ أَلاَ لَهُ الْحُكْمُ وَهُوَ أَسْرَعُ الْحَاسِبِينَ

6:62

The real Mowla of all believers is Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) & Imams from Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) are made Mowla by Him (refer to ayah e wilayat).

You can see in this phrase the word "rakhay" is singular, its plural is "rakhain (رکھیں). Which Mowla is referred here? The Truth Almighty (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).

Nowhere did I mention that they (عليه السلام) are dead. And how does that excerpt from the ziyarah equate with my question? Protection comes from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) unless you believe in other Gods or semi-Gods along with him. The Aimmah (عليه السلام) prayed to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) for their own protection, so how do they protect us? Protection is an independent action and so the one providing it has to be omnipresent, omniscient and all-aware

So are you implying that the Mawla in this context here is Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and not the Ma'sumeen (عليه السلام)? If yes, then good. If no, then please explain with quranic and hadith references how the infallibles (عليه السلام) protect us?

What has been said by me, was quite clear and I wasn't expecting any further question. 

So my answer was in "yes" which looks good to you. But this doesn't negates the possibility of someone becomes wasilah for you. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) helped the believers in Badr "through" Angels

وَمَا جَعَلَهُ اللَّهُ إِلَّا بُشْرَى لَكُمْ وَلِتَطْمَئِنَّ قُلُوبُكُمْ بِهِ وَمَا النَّصْرُ إِلَّا مِنْ عِنْدِ اللَّهِ الْعَزِيزِ الْحَكِيمِ

3:126) And Allah did not make it but as good news for you, and that your hearts might be at ease thereby, and help is only from Allah, the Mighty, the Wise.

This verse makes it clear that the source of every help is Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), He is free to appoint any agency from His forces (جنود) for helping us. And Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and Imams are the حزب الله. 

لَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا رُسُلَنَا بِالْبَيِّنَاتِ وَأَنْزَلْنَا مَعَهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْمِيزَانَ لِيَقُومَ النَّاسُ بِالْقِسْطِ ۖ وَأَنْزَلْنَا الْحَدِيدَ فِيهِ بَأْسٌ شَدِيدٌ وَمَنَافِعُ لِلنَّاسِ وَلِيَعْلَمَ اللَّهُ مَنْ يَنْصُرُهُ وَرُسُلَهُ بِالْغَيْبِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ قَوِيٌّ عَزِيزٌ

57:25) Certainly We sent Our messengers with clear arguments, and sent down with them the Book and the balance that men may conduct themselves with equity; and We have made the iron, wherein is great violence and advantages to men, and that Allah may know who helps Him and His messengers in the secret; surely Allah is Strong, Mighty.

This above highlighted part where helper is someone other than Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)

and then the following verse:

وَقُل رَّبِّ أَدْخِلْنِي مُدْخَلَ صِدْقٍ وَأَخْرِجْنِي مُخْرَجَ صِدْقٍ وَاجْعَل لِّي مِن لَّدُنكَ سُلْطَانًا نَّصِيرًا

17:80) Say: "O my Lord! Let my entry be by the Gate of Truth and Honour, and likewise my exit by the Gate of Truth and Honour; and grant me from Thy Presence an authority to aid (me)."

Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) asking Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) an Aider not the aid. Now would you argue that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) cannot appoint anyone or cannot make wasilah to anyone for helping? 

Wassalam!!

Take one more verse for your reference:

إِن تَتُوبَا إِلَى اللَّهِ فَقَدْ صَغَتْ قُلُوبُكُمَا وَإِن تَظَاهَرَا عَلَيْهِ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ مَوْلَاهُ وَجِبْرِيلُ وَصَالِحُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمَلَائِكَةُ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ ظَهِيرٌ

66:4) If you both turn to Allah, then indeed your hearts are already inclined; and if you back up each other against him, then surely Allah it is Who is his Guardian, and Jibreel and -the believers that do good, and the angels after that are the aiders.

I don't think I even need to explain who is mentioned as "Salih ul Mo'mineen" here.

Wassalam!!

Wassalam!!

BarakAllah feek, this is a much better response but if we check the book of tafaseer, then all of these references mention a specific context in which someone alive in the bodily form in this very realm (save the angels at badr) had acted as aiders to rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), looking now further than the verse that you mentioned below

On 9/22/2021 at 12:12 PM, Cool said:

Over here, Imam Ali (عليه السلام) is indeed of the salih al mu'mineen who has been mentioned here in a very specific context where the two wives of the prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) had backed each other up against the prophet and sinned, thus, Allah, the angels and Imam Ali are his aiders whereas those wives have nobody as theirs. Over here Imam Ali (عليه السلام) is alive in his bodily form. If we use this verse and apply it generally in 2021 then that would bring about a 1000 questions. There is no doubt that Imam Ali (عليه السلام) is alive spiritually, receiving sustenance from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and is a witness over us. But to say that he 'protects' a believer with his spiritual powers given to him by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) sounds like a superstition and such a concept can be easily twisted and framed. Millions all around the world say "aapko maula (عليه السلام) salamat rakhay" but how would mawla (عليه السلام) protect those thousands unless he has some powers akin to God (naou'dhubillah). What if hundreds out of those thousands are under danger, does mawla (عليه السلام) show up at the scene one by one and avert danger from them? We know very well that the angels had arrived at the battlefield to aid the muslimeen at badr, if we use the same analogy here, then it simply doesn't click. Although, if we do say that an unseen army is sent by Mawla (عليه السلام) by the leave of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), then that is still a valid point. But this dogmatic punchline of 'by the leave of Allah' is opening doors to so many traps, people can be easily hoodwinked. Maybe in the future it'll be common to say 'may Mawla give you child x and car y' but by the leave of Allah. Or 'may Mawla grant you success and bless you' but by the leave of Allah. This is why I am slowly disillusioning with cultural shi'ism
Salam to you and your loved ones :)

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

 

To make this very clear that the calling to some one that you have knowledge you can reach is action based upon clear observation such as talking to a person or using telecommunications with others or such when Prophet Muhammed (SAAS) is talking with Jibreel (عليه السلام). Calling some beyond the observing knowledge is calling someone that one has no knowledge and still calling. That is blind action that has no value and waving favours from something that one has no knowledge in unlawful.

 

فَلَا تَدْعُ مَعَ اللَّهِ إِلَٰهًا آخَرَ فَتَكُونَ مِنَ الْمُعَذَّبِينَ
Surat Ash-Shu'araa : 213
 
سورة الشعراء : ٢١٣
So do not invoke any god besides Allah, lest you should be among the punished.
 
 
Pray Allah and obey Allah, and the messenger and the Holy Household and ask Allah to give you intersession because Allah has forgiven Prophet Adam (عليه السلام) mistake because Adam (عليه السلام) made repentance asked Allah to accept his (عليه السلام) repentance because of the light that where in Propthet Adam (عليه السلام) to come to this world. Allah has promised to forgive everyone who prays Allah to forgive his or hers mistakes because of the Prophet Muhammed, Ali, Fatima, Hasan and Husein.
 
Imam Al-Hasan al-’Askari (عليه السلام) has stated that when Allah accepted Adam’s (عليه السلام) repentance, Prophet Adam (عليه السلام) requested the Almighty that He accept his repentance and grant him the same position as before. Indeed their evil inclinations became manifest to them. Then Allah said, “O Adam! You didn’t remember My Order, seek My help by the sake of Muhammad and his family.” Prophet Adam (عليه السلام) said that he had forgotten. Allah said, “Implore Me by the names of Muhammad ‘Ali Fatimah Hasan and Husayn, and I will accept your prayer.” Prophet Adam (عليه السلام) said, “O Allah, the Sustainer! For the sake of your five noble followers accept my prayer and forgive my mistake. I am your first Prophet and your angels made obeisance to me and you appointed the angels for my service.” Allah said, “O Adam! I ordered the angels to make obeisance to you because you were the vessel of their lights. If you had implored Me through their names I would have kept you safe from disobedience and warned you of the deception of Iblis. But whatever I had anticipated has occurred. Now, pray to Me so that I accept your request.

Prophet Adam (عليه السلام) prayed to Allah with the names of Muhammad, ‘Ali, Fatimah, Hasan and Husayn and asked Him for forgiveness. Allah was pleased with him and said that his repentance was accepted. Imam has stated that Allah taught him the five auspicious names. Then Allah told Prophet Adam and Hawwa’, the serpent and the Satan, “There are provisions for you on the earth and you will be happy on the earth until you die.” Allah has created the fruits, flowers and vegetables for them, to make them happy and do good deeds for the hereafter. Sometimes Allah puts His believers in trial by subjecting them to difficulties and disease. Allah bestows all the bounties as rewards and it is not possible to get all the benefits without toiling for them. The bounties of the hereafter are much better than worldly life. Allah tests us by pain and difficulties so that we would be aware of the punishment of the Resurrection Day when there shall be no relief.6

Salam!!

As stated earlier, to deliver, protect & help a believer is the duty duly owned by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) himself:

 كَذَلِكَ حَقًّا عَلَيْنَا نُنجِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ

10:103

وَكَانَ حَقًّا عَلَيْنَا نَصْرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ

30:47

We know the ways Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) helps. We know the fact that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) himself never come to help or rescue the believers, He makes someone wasilah from His جنود (forces), may they be from angels, from Awliya Allah. 

So if you just look at the lives of Awliya Allah, you will find superstition there too. You will find them acting like super humans. Example, some knowledge of the book enables a person from the forces of Prophet Suleyman (عليه السلام) brought the throne of queen within the blink of an eye. He out gunned the عفريت from Jinns who said I can bring it before you stand from your seat. Sounds quite impressive but supernatural. 

Now come to the very being of Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) who said I was a Prophet when Adam was in the state of between water & clay. This may sound superstition to you but the Quranic verses confirms this hadith: 

وَإِذْ أَخَذَ اللّهُ مِيثَاقَ النَّبِيِّيْنَ لَمَا آتَيْتُكُم مِّن كِتَابٍ وَحِكْمَةٍ ثُمَّ جَاءكُمْ رَسُولٌ مُّصَدِّقٌ لِّمَا مَعَكُمْ لَتُؤْمِنُنَّ بِهِ وَلَتَنصُرُنَّهُ قَالَ أَأَقْرَرْتُمْ وَأَخَذْتُمْ عَلَى ذَلِكُمْ إِصْرِي قَالُواْ أَقْرَرْنَا قَالَ فَاشْهَدُواْ وَأَنَاْ مَعَكُم مِّنَ الشَّاهِدِينَ

3:81

Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), in the above verse mentioning a covenant which He took from his messengers that they will:

1) believe when a messenger will come to them confirming what is with them

2) help him

This haqeeqat e Muhammadiya itself will look superstition to you. The hadith wich says that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has created this world out of the love of Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) would also look superstition to you. The hadith which tells us that these blessed personalities are the ones who taught the angels how to glorify Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) would also look superstition to you and there is much more which I can brought forward from our hadith literature and from the verses of Quran. 

The key understanding which protects us from going astray is that we believe that these blessed personalities are the misdaq of this verse:

وَمَا تَشَاؤُونَ إِلَّا أَن يَشَاء اللَّهُ

76:30 

These blessed personalities wills only that which Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) wills. So their every action is attributed as God Almighty has done it. Example, Those who pledged allegiance to Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) have pledged allegiance to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), the hand of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) was above their hands. Prophet did not threw the peebles, Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) threw them. Obeying Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) tantamount to obeying Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) etc.

These are the reasons we believe that these bearers of divine covenant are from the Junood of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and we cannot say that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) will not assign any duty, with respect to helping the believers, to them. And we also believe that since they are the Awliya Allah and the witness over His creation , Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) would listen to their request because of their nearness to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). So these blessed personalities keeps the potential, by the grace & mercy of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), for helping the believers either:

1) If Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) assign them the duty to help someone.

2) If they pray to God for bringing ease to any difficulty he/she may be facing. 

And that grace and mercy of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is very well mentioned in Holy Quran:

يُدْخِلُ مَنْ يَشَاءُ فِي رَحْمَتِهِ

76:31

وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا رَحْمَةً لِّلْعَالَمِينَ

21:107

وَلَوْلاَ فَضْلُ اللّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَتُهُ لاَتَّبَعْتُمُ الشَّيْطَانَ إِلاَّ قَلِيلاً

4:83

ذَلِكَ فَضْلُ اللَّهِ يُؤْتِيهِ مَن يَشَاء وَاللَّهُ ذُو الْفَضْلِ الْعَظِيمِ

62:4 

Our occult Imam ajtf, must also be sound superstitious character to you!! The belief that Syeda Fatima s.a arrive in the majalis of Imam Hussain (عليه السلام), is also sound superstition to you. 

If you ask from any atheist, he would tell you that the religion itself is superstition. The concept of God is superstition etc. 

So my sincere advise to you is that, if you don't know something, hold onto your state of not knowing, do not go ahead and start denying the possibilities.Otherwise everything would become superstition for you, even the concept of God. 

Wassalam!!

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

In the name of Allah, All-Merciful, The Gracious
ٱللَّٰهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَجِّلْ فَرَجَهُمْ
The one whom all obey give Your bliss to Muhammed and the family of Muhammed and hasten their rise

وَيَعْبُدُونَ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ مَا لَا يَضُرُّهُمْ وَلَا يَنْفَعُهُمْ وَيَقُولُونَ هَٰؤُلَاءِ شُفَعَاؤُنَا عِنْدَ اللَّهِ ۚ قُلْ أَتُنَبِّئُونَ اللَّهَ بِمَا لَا يَعْلَمُ

 

فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَلَا فِي الْأَرْضِ ۚ سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَىٰ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ

Surat Yunus : 18

 

سورة يونس : ١٨

They worship besides Allah that which neither causes them any harm, nor brings them any benefit, and they say, ‘These are our intercessors, شُفَعَا with Allah.’ Say, ‘Will you inform Allah about something Allah does not know in the heavens or on the earth?’ Glorified and High without any partners that they ascribe.


 

Do not pray any other than Allah. Do not pray imams, prophets or saints. They cant magically right your wrongs nor divine justice allow such thing. If one prays favours or guidance from other than Allah, All-Seeing, All-Hearing, All-Knowing one has left natural guidance of Allah by committing a major sin. Understand the intercession, شُفَعَا, in a proper way that no one can forgive your sins, nor corrected wrongs without actual work , - nor guide you to do good and forbid evil but Allah. Nor anyone can force you to submit to will of Allah if you do not accept the guidance.

The ones who have right over another can make intercession of others behalf and only one who has that and nobody else have right nor reality to claim that they can forgive wrongs that are not made against them nor pretendt that they have power to do so either. The one who had wronged against oneself can only seeks forgivness from Allah when acknowledging that ahlulbayt (عليه السلام) are the example to follow to acchive paradise. The Justice of Allah encompasses all things. Allah has power over all things. The intercession, شُفَعَا, behalfs only to those who obey Allah, The Messenger of Allah and those who have authority in this world in the day of judgement and everything will be done according to the decree. One who prays other than Allah has searched compensation from source that can not give guidance to obedience to Allah, nor can have right to give forgivness for sin that are not made against them in truth and its measure and blessing. Allahs justice is the Truth and guidance will not be given if one pray to someone else than Allah. No one can make live life on your behalf nor anyone can make you to submit to Allah on your behalf. Allah has power over all things. The submission to the will of Allah is only to Allah and the one who has prayed other than Allah has denied the Justice of Allah and prayed something that has no power nor given permission. Do not pray other than Allah or you have performed a grave sin. Pray Allah to forgive mistakes and sins in past and continue never to make them again. Concider if something must be compensated through blood money, paying debts, praying missed prayers, fasting, returning belongings and maintaining doing good and forbidding evil while working to correcting the wrongs. Allah will guide and Allah is only who can guide. Allah All-Hearing, All-Powerful, All-Forgiving will grant the forgiveness for the repentant who ask Allah to forgive one the sins and mistakes one has committed in past if one asks forgiveness for the truth of Muhammed, Ali, Fatima, Hasan and Husein and makes clear intention to right what was wronged and learn from their example what was acted in blindness and fanatism.


إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِينُ

Surat Al-Faatiha : 5

 

سورة الفاتحة : ٥

You [alone] do we worship, and to You [alone] do we turn for help.

Pray Allah for forgivness, obey Allah, The Messenger and the Imam of the time if you believe in Allah. Praying any other than Allah is strictly forbidden, it is great injustice.

You didn’t remember My Order, seek My help by the sake of Muhammad and his family.” Prophet Adam (عليه السلام) said that he had forgotten. Allah said, “Implore Me by the names of Muhammad ‘Ali, Fatimah Hasan and Husayn, and I will accept your prayer.” Prophet Adam (عليه السلام) said, “O Allah, the Sustainer! For the sake of your five noble followers accept my prayer and forgive my mistake. I am your first Prophet and your angels made obeisance to me and you appointed the angels for my service.” Allah said, “O Adam! I ordered the angels to make obeisance to you because you were the vessel of their lights. If you had implored Me through their names I would have kept you safe from disobedience and warned you of the deception of Iblis. But whatever I had anticipated has occurred. Now, pray to Me so that I accept your request.

Prophet Adam (
عليه السلام) prayed to Allah with the names of Muhammad, ‘Ali, Fatimah, Hasan and Husayn and asked Him for forgiveness. Allah was pleased with him and said that his repentance was accepted. Imam has stated that Allah taught him the five auspicious names. Then Allah told Prophet Adam and Hawwa’, the serpent and the Satan, “There are provisions for you on the earth and you will be happy on the earth until you die.” Allah has created the fruits, flowers and vegetables for them, to make them happy and do good deeds for the hereafter. Sometimes Allah puts His believers in trial by subjecting them to difficulties and disease. Allah bestows all the bounties as rewards and it is not possible to get all the benefits without toiling for them. The bounties of the hereafter are much better than worldly life. Allah tests us by pain and difficulties so that we would be aware of the punishment of the Resurrection Day when there shall be no relief. Ref. [1]


 

Allah all-Forgiving, Guide.


 

10 - In Hadeeth # 21: One day the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) saw Hassan ((عليه السلام)) and Hussain ((عليه السلام))coming. He said:…"And in the eyes of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), there is no one more meritorious than myself and my brother who is my vizier, my Caliph in my Ummah and after me is the guardian of all Mo'mineen - Alee ibn Abi Talib ((عليه السلام)),…When Alee ((عليه السلام)) will pass away then my son Hassan ((عليه السلام)) will be after him, and when he passes away, after him will be my son Hussain ((عليه السلام)). After that there will be nine Imams who will be descendants of Hussain." [Pg. # 734 of the Book of Sulaym]

On 10/9/2021 at 11:10 PM, Abdul Rahim al-Hasan said:

Do not pray any other than Allah. Do not pray imams, prophets or saints.

To pray mean دعا and دعا is specific for Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) alone. 

What we are discussing is the term استغاثه (istighatha or calling someone for help). 

So if you say do not ask anything other than Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), that means the companions of Prophet as well as Prophets themselves never understood the meanings you are extrapolating. Here are the verses of Quran:

قَالُوا يَا أَبَانَا اسْتَغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا إِنَّا كُنَّا خَاطِئِينَ

قَالَ سَوْفَ أَسْتَغْفِرُ لَكُمْ رَبِّي ۖ إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ 

12:97-98

The sons of Prophet asking him to ask forgiveness for them. Why, Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) said he listens to our prayers and accepts them. Why they asked their father? And why their father, who himself was a Prophet, never corrected them by saying: look my sons don't do shirk, ask forgiveness from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), I can't help you in this matter? On the contrary, we see that their father has assured them that he will ask for the forgiveness from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).

وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا مِنْ رَسُولٍ إِلَّا لِيُطَاعَ بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ ۚ وَلَوْ أَنَّهُمْ إِذْ ظَلَمُوا أَنْفُسَهُمْ جَاءُوكَ فَاسْتَغْفَرُوا اللَّهَ وَاسْتَغْفَرَ لَهُمُ الرَّسُولُ لَوَجَدُوا اللَّهَ تَوَّابًا رَحِيمًا

4:64

Why the companions feel the need to even go to Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) for asking forgiveness of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)? And why Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has mentioned here the phrase واستغفر لهم الرسول? Why asking forgiveness of companions alone was not sufficient when they wronged themselves? 

On 10/9/2021 at 11:10 PM, Abdul Rahim al-Hasan said:

Understand the intercession, شُفَعَا, in a proper way that no one can forgive your sins, nor corrected wrongs without actual work , 

Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has authorized some for intercession, the exceptions are right there is holy Quran. So it is better for you to understand those verses which mentions:

الا من شهد بالحق و هم يعلمون

الا من اتخذ عن الرحمن عهدا

الا لمن ارتضي و هم من خشيته مشفقون

الا من اذن له الرحمن و رضي له قولا

Salam,

Can we detach ourselves from Muhammad wa aali Muhammad (عليه السلام)?  Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) does not allow it (33:56) because Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) Himself attaches to them.  What does attachment mean?  Can we ask Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and deep in out heart, we are detached from Muhammad and aali Muhammad (عليه السلام)?  What is the difference between we make doa to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and Abu Bakr and Umar making doa to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)?  Attachment to Muhammad wa aali Muhammad (عليه السلام) is the wasilah.

If we only consider Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is sufficient, then Umar was right when he denied the Prophet's (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) request for pen and paper by saying "We have Quran with us", in other word, we have Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) with us.

When Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) send down 33:56, He (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is sending a message to us that we are not deprived / detached with the "accompany" of Muhammad wa Aali Muhammad (عليه السلام).  The Salawat is the CODE for all followers of Ahlulbayt. No merely saying it, we mean it that Muhammad wa aali Muhammad (عليه السلام) are with us in the past, current and future.  They will never leave us. We are the once that detach ourselves from them.  The salawat will be forever (attachment will be forever, as long as Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) wishes)

Tawassul is the mean of attachment/connection from physical world to spiritual world, from our physical to higher dimensions (spiritual) and Muhammad wa aali Muhammad (عليه السلام) are alive in spiritual realm.  And true Salawat is the CODE to spiritual world and to be with Muhammad wa aali Muhammad (عليه السلام).

Wallahualam.

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

In the name of Allah, The Most Merciful, The Most Gracious

ٱللَّٰهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَجِّلْ فَرَجَهُمْ

O God, bless Muhammad and the Progeny of Muhammad and hasten their alleviation


 

There is no problem asking someone to pass the salt on the table, make business, or have conversations to share knowledge and ask questions in the seen world or the unseen world. The soul can see in both when reached certain levels of realization. Allah is All-Just. Therefore the intention and understanding of the one is the only important matter when it comes to these realities. People have worshipped stones that have no power to even hear or see the ones who call them in the seen world. People have claimed forgiveness on a false basis without actually understanding Forgiving, Merciful. And people have worshipped devils, magicians to serve their injustice towards themselves and other creation.

 

If one does even little good to the other then one has authority towards the other and if one does even little bad for the other then the other can claim right on the one according to the decree or forgive.

 

 Key to success as well as the daily prayers and sharing what Allah has give to you, -  is the Salawat. 

 

اهْدِنَا الصِّرَاطَ الْمُسْتَقِيم

“Guide us to the straight path.”

صِرَاطَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ غَيْرِ الْمَغْضُوبِ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا الضَّالِّينَ

“The path of those whom You have blessed — such as have not incurred Your wrath, nor are astray.”

 

Allah does not need creation. 

 

ذَٰلِكَ الَّذِي يُبَشِّرُ اللَّهُ عِبَادَهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ ۗ قُلْ لَا أَسْأَلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ أَجْرًا إِلَّا الْمَوَدَّةَ فِي الْقُرْبَىٰ ۗ وَمَنْ يَقْتَرِفْ حَسَنَةً نَزِدْ لَهُ فِيهَا حُسْنًا ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفُورٌ شَكُورٌ

Such is the good news that Allah gives to His servants who have faith and do righteous deeds! Say, ‘I do not ask you any reward for it except the love of [my] relatives. Whoever performs a good deed, We shall enhance its goodness for him. Indeed Allah is all-forgiving, all-appreciative.

 

 

The rights of the Muhammed and Aali Muhammed have been bestowed clearly upon jinns, men and angels as well as to all creation. 

 

Do good and forbid evil. Pray for those who you have misconducted and right the wrongs so you will rise from the grave without any sin nor blame. The greatest right has the Imam of the time (عليه السلام) but also believers, relatives, neighbours, teachers, co-workers, friends and everyone in your life.

Salawat is the key to success. 

 

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

In the name of Allah, The Most Merciful, The Most Gracious

ٱللَّٰهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَجِّلْ فَرَجَهُمْ

O God, bless Muhammad and the Progeny of Muhammad and hasten their alleviation.

 

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا الرَّسُولَ وَأُولِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ ۖ فَإِنْ تَنَازَعْتُمْ فِي شَيْءٍ فَرُدُّوهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَالرَّسُولِ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ خَيْرٌ وَأَحْسَنُ تَأْوِيلًا

O you who have faith! Obey Allah and obey the Apostle and those vested with authority among you. And if you dispute concerning anything, refer it to Allah and the Apostle, if you have faith in Allah and the Last Day. That is better and more favourable in outcome.

 

May Allah bless you and guide you to knowledge and realization who ever testify this and support you with the best of the best among Muhammed and Aali Muhammed (SAAS).

O God, bless Muhammad and the Progeny of Muhammad and hasten their alleviation




 

Ya Ghafoor, You are the One who forgives the mistakes of the repenting. Please forgive me for my mistakes that I have made.

 

Ya Rahim, You are the one who bestows special blessing to your creation, bless me with the blessing of the faith.

 

Ya Hadi, You are the one who guides all that you create. Guide me to the straight path. The path of your Prophet Muhammed and his Holy Family you created all that is to serve You.

 

Ya Fattah, You are the opener of the knowledge. Increase me in the knowledge of your presence.

Ya Haliil, You are the guide that directs to the right way with kindness and subtleness without any haste. Give me goodness against enemies and justice towards those who have transgressed against me.

 

Ya Hakim, You are wise who does not need what you have created. You do not do evil nor do you do injustice to Your creation. Everything you had created had been made according to the Decree. You have set lawful separated from unlawful. Made somethings obligatory and some things recommended. Those that you have made lawful are obligatory and recommended and you created them to have truthfulness and benefits for you creation bounded in then and those that you made unlawful have falsehood and harmfulness bounded in them. Grant me the wisdom to know the decrees of your blessing and guidance to protect me to never exceed them.

 

Ya Rahman, You are the one who created all creation when nothing but You existed. Help me to serve needs for any creation I ever encounter in my life you have chosen for me to be encountered.

 

Ya Samil, The one who hears my prayers. Accepts my calling.

 

Ya Basir, The one who sees my condition. Improve my state.

Ya Allah, Ya Allah, Ya Allah

I beseech You for mercy and graciouness to improve my faith.

 

O Allah grant me wisdom in works such that I will see the difference of vain and necessary and grant me patience to hold from what I do not need and inspiration fulfill what is obligatory in times of peace and in times of hardship since the patience is the garden of the faith and I if I dont foster and take care of my patience I cant enjoy the fruits of the faith. 

 

Ya Khabiir, You are the One who has knowledge of all affairs and nothing is hidden from you. Hide my wrongs and give me sustenance from you that is lawful and love for obligatory and recommended and hate for unlawful and clearance in the cases of confusing matters.

 

Ya Qayum, You are the everlasting that has no time, no change, no motion, no direction, no form, no space, no partner, no need for anything. Non is like You and  You are Only like You are. The One, Self-Sufficient, Only. Nothing can remove You or belittle your everlasting authority. Grant me Islam and wide my chest in awareness of You and awareness of your Proof for this Ummah.

 

Ya Hayum, You are Ever-Living that does not die. You are the giver of life and splendour of liveliness and inspiration of the spirit. Give me inspiration for the most beautiful deeds of the deeds in thy mercy and guidance with generosity and justice.

YA Quddus, You are the Holy that has no impurity, or defect, or shortcoming of any. You are Holy above all that is described except the way you have made Yourself to known. Grant me the inspiration of holy spirit with clearness and authority of knowledge. And patience to hold on what is necessary and truthful. 

 

Ya Mutakabbir, You the One to whose front all creation comes before as slaves. You are the only one deserving to be bowed and before you everything bows to your glory knowingly and unknowingly. Make me understand Your exaltation that one can not say that one has praised You enough so I would not consider myself important nor would I praise myself from thy blessing You have granted me in thy mercy.

 

Ya Sabur, You are the patience one who has no rush or hastiness in Your ways. You give your enemies time in this life to have rewards according to your decree and you have said: "do good and forbid evil". You love those who do good and does not exceed the limits. Grant me patience since none can do good to themselves except the patient ones that you have granted certitude of Your decrees and contentment in Your trials.

 

Ya Shakur, You are the giver of goodness for a reward. Your blessing has no end for the good-doers and Your reward for the good-doers are the everlasting paradise. Your accountancy to mischief makers and exceeders of the Your decree is just and the judgement of their action is everlasting Hell. Your Forgiveness overtakes Your punishment from those who repent and You graciously give blessing to those who seek repentance for their sins and give thanks for Thy guidance. All thanks are to Allah, the Master of All worlds. Make me thank You for Your blessing that I would not strive away Your kind favours that have no ending for those who give gratitude to You for mercy You have bestowed upon them.

 

Ya Aliim, You are the all and everything ever knower what you have created. Your knowledge has no limitation. Your knowledge can not be limited to creation nor anyone can say that they have knew what you know. You give knowledge to who you please and no other than You can give knowledge. You have eternally had the knowledge that I would praise you and seek your guidance as I have done. And you have always knew the ones who reject You and your favours proudly. You are the only I can seek help and you are the only worthy of worship. Protect me from the fire of the Hell you have made for the ungrateful and proud ones, and support me with your inspiration in my soul that I would not go astray and forgive me my past mistakes. Indeed you have no need for Your creation and all good that I do is because of thy mercy and all mistakes are due to my error in my submission to thy will. Grant me an awareness that You are the All-Knowing. Nothing is hidden from you be it the smallest of the smallest or be it the greatest of the greatest. Will it be in the future or had it been in the past. Make me aware that you are All-Knowing and I can not hide anything from You. Increase my submission to your will according to fitra You gave me that I would only serve You and worship You in all presence remembrance in my life You gave me.

 

Ya Alaa, You are the most high. Nothing can have authority nor command other than that you call and will. When you say Be - it is and nothing can oppose Your Will nor change what you have decreed. Take away all my fears and worries and grant me peace in my heart, serenity in my soul, satisfaction in my ego and grant me protection against the unbelievers confusions and save me from them with a clear understanding of Your signs and decrees.

 

Ya Aziim, You are The Magnificent. You raise the mountains and set up the clouds to bring good news. You set the thunder to clap and make the earth shake and break. Grant us imam of the time since unbelievers have spread mischief and tyrannies have made their agents spread lies against your Prophet Muhammed and the Holy household. Grant us victory against the rejector, the cursed Iblis and his follower.

 

Hasten, Hasten, Hasten the relief of the rightly guided Imaam.

 

Ya Jaleel, You are Glorified in the Heavens and in the earth and Everything you have created glory You in the way You have chosen them to glorify your praise. All praise is due to Allah the Owner of the worlds.

When you seek the intercession of the Imam of our time do not pray other than to Allah to grant intersession for you. You will get intersession if you obey Imam and fulfil your obligatory deeds and ask that for Allah to grant you safely.


 

Ya Allah, By the truth of your Prophet Muhammed, Ali, Fatima, Hasan and Husein. Accept our prayers and send Your blessing to Your Prophet Muhammed and Holy household of the Prophet Muhammed and grant us the intersession of the Holy Imam of our time in this day and the day of beliefs.

Aamen.
