As for Shaykh Asrar talking about istighathah, please correct me if I'm wrong: We should call upon Allah most of the time. We are Ahl al-Sunnah, we don't deny calling on prophets and awliya. But just because it is permitted doesn't mean that's all we do. Call on Allah. Say Ya Allah. O Allah, help me. Sunnis don't believe prophets and saints assists us independently so even if they do say Ya RasulAllah ﷺ or Ya Ghawth, it is fine. But we can't do it so much that people begin forgetting Allah. That could lead to exaggeration, ghuluw. There could even be some ignorants who start believing incorrect things. Even when we say Ya RasulAllah or Ya Ghawth, the real helper is Allah. So call on Him directly mostly. We can call on others but that is a type of tawassul. We should call on them much less than we call on Allah. Shaykh Asrar isn't wrong, imho.
