Question ID: 25061

Assalamualaikum respected mufti saab. Is it allowed to ask direct to prophet(sw) near his grave? if not can you please interprate this story for me? Jazakallahu khairan Durood (The last chapter in A’maal, Vol.I): “Sh. Abu Khair Qattah said that: I went to Madeenah and stayed there for five days but did not achieve the pleasure and satisfaction. I went to the graves of the Prophet, Hadhrat Abu Bakar and Hadhrat ‘Umar and said, “O Messenger of Allaah I am your guest tonight.” Then I left the place and slept behind the minbar. I saw in my dream that the Prophet of Allaah with Abu Bakar on his right, ‘Umar on his left and ‘Alee was in front of them all. Hadhrat ‘Alee then shook me and said that the Messenger of Allaah has come to visit me. I got up and kissed the Prophet between his eyes. The Messenger of Allaah then gave me a piece of bread which I ate half and when I woke up the other half was in my hand.”

(Abu-al-Faraj Ibn Al-Jawzi Muthir Al-Gharam Al-Sakin Ila Ashraf Al-Amakin)

and same incident:

(al-hafiz) Abu Bakr al-Minqari said: I was with (al-hafiz) al-Tabarani and (al-hafiz) Abu al-Shaykh in the Prophet’s Mosque, in some difficulty. We became very hungry. That day and the next we didn’t eat. When it was time for `isha, I came to the Prophet’s grave and I said: “O Messenger of Allah, we are hungry, we are hungry” (ya rasullallah al-ju` al-ju`)! Then I left. Abu al-Shaykh said to me: Sit. Either there will be food for us, or death. I slept and Abu al-Shaykh slept. al-Tabarani stayed awake, researching something. Then an `Alawi (a descendant of `Ali) came knocking at the door with two boys, each one carrying a palm-leaf basket filled with food. We sat up and ate. We thought that the children would take back the remainder but they left everything behind. When we finished, the `Alawi said: O people, did you complain to the Prophet? I saw him in my sleep and he ordered me to bring something to you.

(Abu-al-Faraj Ibn Al-Jawzi Kitab al-Wafa (p. 818 #1536)

Some stories in Fazail-e-Durood require Acedemic educations.
Some Ulema are of the opinion that one is in actual connection with Nabi (S.A.W) at his grave side.
