Assalat-O-Wassalam-O-Alaika YARASOOL ALLAH
We are living in a world of uncertainty and misconceptions. Man is beginning to question the very roots of his
beliefs for Allah Almighty and the Holy Prophet Sall Allahu alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallim, to create doubt in the minds of the simple and un suspecting Muslims.
Here is proof from QUR'AN, Ahadith-e-Nabawi (Sallallaho Alaihi Wasallam), Sayings of Sahab-e-Kiram and from the
writings of great and authentic scholars of Islam which show beyond a shadow of a doubt that Can we ask for help other then ALLAH?
The distinguished Prophets and illustrious Awliya enjoy a very special proximity with ALLAH and are therefore,
Divinely blessed to assist fellow creation. This assistance can be of a spiritual or physical nature and can be
rendered while they are alive and even after their death. These Elite Servants of ALLAH offer their help only by the Command of Almighty ALLAH. They do not do anything without the Consent of their Sublime Lord and are always obedient to Him.
The Gracious ALLAH always Showers His Choicest Blessings on His special servants. He addresses them as"His
Friends"and no one can imagine or understand this Divinely blessed relation between them. ALLAH States in a
"My Awliya are hidden in My Divine Garb and no one knows them besides Me."
There are numerous Ayahs of the Holy Quran and other Ahadith that speaks about the excellence and powers of
the Ambiya and the Awliya. They are Divinely appointed representatives and commissioned by ALLAH to perform
special duties in His Kingdom. Since they are the distributors of the Bounties of ALLAH, therefore to seek help from them is actually and in reality seeking the Help of ALLAH. This is so because they are not the enemies of ALLAH but the Friends of ALLAH.
Unfortunately, the Wahabies and Deobandies ignorantly oppose this help as Shirk and regard it as an erroneous
belief. This problem did not exist in the long past and peaceful history of Islam. Ibne Abdul Wahab of Najd
introduced it a few hundred years ago. It was then imported to the Indo/Pak sub-continent and propagated by the Deobandi/Tableeghi cult. This caused a great deal of confusion in the Ummah and also divided the Muslim
community. The Wahabi/Deobandi scholars have written extensively and vehemently condemned the seeking of
help from anyone other than ALLAH as Shirk. They claim with baseless proof that such help seeking is Shirk. To this day, many Muslims are still confused on this subject and some have adopted this Wahabi/Deobandi belief in sheer ignorance.
The reality of assistance is that ALLAH must be regarded as the All- Powerful, the Sovereign, the Absolute, the
Non-dependent and Infinite Affluent. He has the Power to independently do as He pleases. It is the belief of every Muslim that to attribute these unique qualities to anyone other than ALLAH is Shirk. Surely, no Muslim will attribute this to anyone, other than ALLAH. In fact, he regards certain creations as a medium or Waseela to achieve blessings and fulfillment of desires. This is certainly correct and in order. ALLAH Himself Orders in the Holy Quran:
وابتغواإليهالوسيلة*"Seek the Waseela towards ALLAH."(Al-Maidah:35)
By this we understand thatإياكنستعينdoes not reject the seeking of assistance from other than ALLAH. Similarly, in the reality of existence, it is only ALLAH Who exists without assistance and birth. Then how can it be Shirk if we believe in our existence by His Divine Grace?حقائقالأشياءثابتةThe reality of things is established.
