Assalamalaikum wa rahmatullah wa baraktu, Dear respected Shaykh i want you to enlighten me on the querie that i have. I have someone who says it better for someone to make dua for you. The situation is that she is having a difficult time and she said ask the shaykh at the local mosque as they are full of knowledge to make dua on my behalf because it is more accepted from them because they are people of knowledge and know more dua. So where shall my stance be here is it correct to say that someone who has knowledge can make dua it will be readily accepted or is it better for you to make dua in individual for your needs. Can you please quote for me some quranic verses or hadiths to help me understand the issue better. Jazakallah khair i hope you can help me with this querie wassaalam
Dear scholars, As-Salaam `Alaykum. Can you explain the meaning of the verse: (If My servants ask you about Me, tell them I am near, ready to answer those who call upon Me?) (Al-Baqarah 2: 186) I was told it means that one can only come to Allah through the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). Is that true? Jazakum Allahu khayran.
