To those who deem it permissible to call on the dead asking their help from them, when did the Prophet (s.a.w.) ever teach his Ummah this practice?
If the Prophet (s.a.w.) never taught this practice, then why would anyone be surprised when other Muslims start to categorise it as Shirk?
If the Prophet (s.a.w.) never taught this practice and even if one feels safe in one’s Iman doing it, why compromise Muslim Unity over a practice that the Prophet (s.a.w.) never actually taught?
May Allah unite the Muslims and establish us firmly on His Din.
