In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Is it permissible to seek help and blessing from the prophet?

Question:

 Dear Dr. Nabulsi,
 I want To know if it is permissible to seek the help and blessing from prophet Muahmad (PBUH) and righteous people directly?

Answer:

  Dear brother,
 Assalamu Alaikum,
 We should seek help only from Allah the Helper, while seeking blessing from the Prophet (PBUH) was OK when he was alive. Now, we can seek blessing by following his sunna and path.
 Best regards

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of Creations
