Wasila of Prophet Mohamed (saws)
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I had been through yr mail of 794 Ayaah's regarding peer faqir but as u have said that there is no ayaah on peer faqir but Mohammed (SAW) has said that Allah says that if Aalim is praying 1 rakat and jahil is praying 1000 rakat is same.
what I mean to say is that we know that we r gunehgaar and if we can do sajdah in front of Allah and ask him that Ya Allah in the sadqa of yr Rasul(saw) pls complete my this.. this wishes so I don't think that ther is any harm,coz we r not asking them to do it but in the name of Allah we r asking him to do through Rasulallah(saw).
I think this must be clear or if u better ideas do come with it.

Wasila of Prophet Mohamed (saws)
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Statement: Mohammed (SAW) has said that Allah says that if Aalim is praying 1 rakat and jahil is praying 1000 rakat is same.
Dear Brother, the above statement that you claim to be from the Messenger of Allah (saws) is not recorded in any of his authentic narrations of ahaadiths; and therefore cannot be accepted as a saying of the Prophet of Allah (saws).
One has to be careful and only quote what is authentically narrated from the Prophet (saws).
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 4.667 Narrated by Abdullah bin Amr
The Prophet (saws) said, "Convey (my teachings) to the people even if it were a single sentence, and tell others the stories of Bani Israel (which have been taught to you), for it is not sinful to do so. And whoever tells a lie on me intentionally, will surely take his place in the (Hell) Fire."
Your Statement: what I mean to say is that we know that we r gunehgaar and if we can do sajdah in front of Allah and ask him that Ya Allah in the sadqa of yr Rasul(saw) pls complete my this.. this wishes so I don't think that ther is any harm,coz we r not asking them to do it but in the name of Allah we r asking him to do through Rasulallah(saw).
The Messenger of Allah (saws) himself always supplicated Allah Subhanah, and taught and exhorted the believers to do the same. But Prophet Mohamed (saws) never ever supplicated Allah Subhanah through a person, nor did he ever teach the believers to supplicate Allah through any person, personality, or even in his (saws) name. Thus, if one supplicates Allah through someone, or even through the name of the noble Messenger of Allah (saws), he is obviously not following the injunctions and guidance of the Prophet (saws), but has invented this way himself.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 186:And if My servants ask you, O Prophet, concerning Me, tell them that I am quite near to them. I hear and answer the prayer of the suppliant, when he calls on Me. So let them respond to My call and believe in Me. (Convey this to them), perhaps they may be guided aright!
But if a believer goes into sajdah, or lifts his hands, and humbly supplicates Allah and testifies that he is indeed the slave of Allah Subhanah, and he fears Allah, and he begs Allah for something, and testifies that Allah Alone can give him what he needs and wants then it is fine and there is no harm. He can also say that he believes in Mohamed (saws) as Allahs Messenger, and obeys and follows him; there is no harm
But to supplicate Allah Subhanah and ask him to give us something in the sadaqa of anyone (even in the name of the Prophet (saws)) is against the very teachings and guidance of the Messenger of Allah (saws) and Islam.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
