As Salaamu Alaykum
I came across the following article.Please read through and shed some light.Jazakallah.
THE ONE WHO CRIES OUT FOR MY HELP DURING SOME PROBLEM, THE PROBLEM GETS SOLVED, THE ONE WHO CALLS OUT MY NAME IN ANY HARDSHIP, THAT HARDSHIP; GETS DISMISSED, THE ONE WHO USED ME AS A SOURCE TO ASK ALLAH FOR SOME NEED, IT WILL BE FUFILLED. THE PERSON WHO PRAYES TWO RAK’AT OF NAFL AND IN EACH RAK’AT AFTER SURAH FATIHA RECITIES SURAH IKHLAS ELEVEN TIMES, AFTER SAYING SALAAM i.e AFTER FINISHING THE PRAYER, SENDS DUROOD-O-SALAAM ON THE KING OF MADEENAH AND THEN WALKS A DISTANCE OF ELEVEN STEPS TOWARDS BAGHDAD SHAREEF AND CALLS OUT MY NAME AND PRESENTS HIS NEED, ALMIGHTY ALLAH WILLING, THAT NEED WILL BE FULFILLED’.
Why should I go from door to door when I have a mentor like You. I received every thing from you; ,’ O Ghous-e-Azam Dastgir.
It is possible that in someone’s mind a thought may arise that we should only ask Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala for any help and no one else, because when Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala is the One who helps then why should we ask anyone else for help?
The answer to this is that this is the way he makes an unknown number of people go astray.
When Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala has not refrained from asking for help from someone else then how can someone get the right of saying that don’t ask for help from anyone but Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala. Look in the Glorious Quran, where Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala has in various verses allowed asking for help from someone else, but even though being the Omnipotent in every way,. He has asked for help from His beings. Therefore it is stated:
Translation: If you will help the religion of Allah, Allah will help you. (Part-26, Sura: Muhammad)
Hazrat-e-Sayyed-e-na Issa Rooh-hul-lah while asking for help from His desciples states:
Translation: Issa son of Maryam has said to his desciples, who may help me being towards Allah? The desciples said, we are the helpers of the religion of Allah”.
(Part-28 Sura: Al-Saff)
When Hazrat-e-Sayyed-e-na Moosa Kalee-mul-lah was ordered to go to Fir’on for preaching, He asked for the help of a human being and requested Allah:
Translation: And make a minister for me from my family (He) May brother Haroon. Strengthen my loin by him. (Part-16 Verses-29 to 31)
Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala has stated in another place:
Translation: Then undoubtedly, Allah is his helper, and Gibrael and the righteous believers and after that the angels are his helpers.
(Part-28 Sura: Al-Tahrim)
The Glorious Quran very openly, in clear words, announces that Allah is the Sustainer, but by the grace of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala even Gibrael Amin and the dear ones of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala (the Prophets ) and the Saints and even the angels are the ones who help. Now, Almighty Allah willing, this thought that no one can help except for Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala , would be demolished from its roots.
The interesting thing is that the ones who migrated to Madeenah-e-Munawwarah from Macca-e-Moazzamah are called Refugee (muhajir) and the ones who helped them are called Ansaar and every sensible person knows that the meaning of the word Ansaar is the helper.
