Thanks for sharing this brother
I [have] read much about Tawassul through the Prophet, upon him blessings and peace, and using his name in du`ā on sunnipath.com, but all those things don't explain the following:1. Why should we use [the] Awliyā and Sālihīn when we are able to use the Prophet, upon him blessings and peace, as a means. Isn't it better to say, for example "Oh Allāh forgive me for your Prophet" than to say "Oh Allāh forgive me for Abdul Qādir Jilanī"? Why [are the] Ahl al-Tasawwuf using their Shuyūkh and not the Prophet, upon him blessings and peace?2. Even if the matter with using [their] names in du`ā is cleared [up], there [remains] another question. Which scholars accepted saying "Yā `Abdul Qādir adriknī" (O `Abdul Qādir look at me), or "Yā Naqshbandī Madad"? How can the Awliyā hear the words, when they are far away (in their graves or [at their] homes when they are alive)? Are their souls informed directly through Allāh or are the angels transmitting them? And what is the proof for this? And again, if this is acceptable, why not use the Prophet, upon him blessings and peace, instead of Awliyā. I do believe in "Madad". But some brothers of Ahlul Sunnah don't know how to handle with this matter and still have some doubts and raised the questions ī wrote. I would be very happy if you could give me a detailed answer, since it is very hard to get detailed information on this topic in Germany from qualified scholars.
