Intercession of the Prophet, Help and Wasilah
« on: November 12, 2011, 03:37:44 PM »
Salam Joseph,

Can we use intercession / help of the Prophet or him as our Wasilah to God?

Salamun Alaikum,


God informs us to ask of him directly. "wa iyyaka nasta'in' (1:5 You alone we ask for help).

Such a concept of intercession as the one prompted by your question is negated by the Quran.

INTERCESSION AND THE PROPHET'S HELP

Also human wasilah's as the one intimated by your question is also negated by the Quran. Please see the following article:

WHAT IS 'WASILAH' FROM A QURAN'S PERSPECTIVE
http://quransmessage.com/articles/wasilah%20FM3.htm

We ask of him directly and Him alone.

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Joseph.
