Fatwa on Istig\u0101tha1
Im\u0101m Shamsudd\u012bn al-Raml\u012b2
Released byw w w . ma r ifa h. net 1428 H
The Im\u0101m was asked:

Regarding what occurs amongst theaw w \u0101m who when in distress say \u201cya shaykh ful\u0101n\u201d and \u201cya Ras\u016blAll\u0101h\u201d and things like this from seeking aid (istigh\u0101tha) with the Prophets and the Awliy\u0101, the `Ulem\u0101 and the righteous, is this permitted or not? And do the Messengers, Prophets, Awliy\u0101, the righteous, and the Mashayekh possess the ability to assist others after their deaths, and what strengthens that view?

He replied:

Istigh\u0101tha (seeking aid) with the Prophets and Messengers, the Awliy\u0101, the `Ulem\u0101 and the righteous is permitted. The messengers, Prophets and the Awliy\u0101 have [the ability to] assist after their death because the miracles of the Prophets and Awliy\u0101 are not severed following their death. As for the Prophets, then they are alive in their graves praying and doing hajj as it has come in the reports. So assistance from them will be a miracle on their behalf; and the martyrs are also alive, and have been seen, openly killing theku ff\u0101 r.
