 Bismillah Ar-Rahmaan Ar-RaheemINTRODUCTIONAll Praise and thanks are for Allaah, Lord of all the worlds and may He send praises and blessings upon the chief of all the Prophets and Messengers, and upon his family, hisCompanions and whoever follows his guidance until the Day of Judgement.The basis for this treatise which I present to the noble readers are two lectures which our teacher Muhammad Naasirud-deen al-Albaanee delivered to a group of Muslim youth in the summer o1392H, at his home in Yarmuk, camp in the city of Damascus. In them, he dealt with the topic of 
at-Tawassul
and all its aspects, and researched it thoroughly, with the wide knowledge, sounddis - cernment and precise investigation and checking which he is well known for; indeed it israre that you find another like him in this age. Those present thought highly of the valuable studydue to the sound scholarly research and its proofs which were strong and clear, and wereconvinced of its conclusions and the view arrived at by it, which is at the same time the positionof the mujtahid imaams of the past,
rahimahumullaah.
We saw that it contained immense benefit and there was a great need for its publication so that itcould be made available to the Muslims, helping to release them from a great deal of confusionwhich they have about this topic. Furthermore, thanks for all bounties are due to Allaah whomade this easy, since a number of brothers, recorded the lectures and one of the brothers whokeenly strives to seek the knowledge, transcribed them in clear and beautiful handwriting, somay Allaah, the Most High, re ward him well for that effort.Then I polished the text to make it suitable for publication and added some points of benefitwhere appropriate. I also provided the source references for the
Aayaat
and some of the
abaadeetb
occurring in it. Then our teacher al- Albaanee retrieved a manuscript of a treatisewhich he had written almost twenty years previously entitled:
 Tawassul and theAhaadeeth about it.
This
was one of a series called:
Attainment of a Sound Judgementabout those who Claim to be Aiding the Rightly-Guided Khaleefahs and the Companions.
In
thisseries he replied to a number of innovators and followers of falsehood who sought to attack the
Salafee da’wah
through various treatise in which they were guilty of falsehood and such blindattacks as do not in any way conform with knowledge and sincerity which is essential for it. Soour teacher showed me that treatise, and I examined it, and found that it contained valu - able points and extra benefits not found in the two lectures.I therefore added these where it was possible to do so, leaving out what was not needed. Then I presented the whole treatise in its new form to the author, mayAllaah preserve him, and herefined and revised it in order to increase its clarity and usefulness. So this treatise, despite its
 
 brevity, is comprehensive, through Allaah’s grace and grant of what is good, and I present it hereto the noble readers hoping that they find a great deal of good in it and great benefit. FurthermoreI ask the Generous Lord and Protector that He writes a great reward for its author, and its publisher, and all praise and thanks are for Allaah through whose blessings righteous deeds arecompleted. He is sufficient for us and the most excellent Disposer of affairs.Damascus, 27

TAWASSUL -
 ITS TYPES AND RELATED RULINGS  All praise and thanks are for Allaah, we praise Him, seek His aid, and ask His forgiveness. We seek Allaah’s refuge from the evils of our own selves and from our evil actions. Whomever  Allaah guides none can misguide him, and whomever Allaah leads astray then none can guidehim. I testify that none has the right to be worshipped except Allaah, alone, having no partner,and I tes - tify that Muhammad is His slave and His Messenger.“0 you who believe! Fear Allaah as He should be feared and die not except in a state of Islaamwith complete submission to Allaah.”

“0 mankind! Be dutiful to your Lord, Who created you from a single person (Aadam), and from him (Aadam) He created his wife (Eve), and from themboth He created many men and women and fear Allaah through whom you demand your mutual (rights), and (do not cut the relations of) the wombs (kinship). Surely, Allaah is Ever an all Watcher over you.”

“0 you who believe! Keep your duty to Allaah and fear Him, and speak (always) the truth. Hewill direct you to do righteous good deeds and will forgive you your sins. And whosoever obeys Allaah and His Messenger ($§>) he has indeed achieved a great achievement.”

 Indeed the best speech is the Book of Allaah, and the best way is the way of Muhammad. Theworst of affairs are novelties, every novelty is an innovation, every innovation is misguidance,and all misguidance is in the Fire.The people are in great confusion about the matter 
ofTawassul
and its rulings in the religion,and they greatly differ concerning it, some declaring it lawful and others prohibiting it, some going to extremes and others being over - lenient. Also, a large number of the Muslims have for centuries been used to saying in their supplications such things as: ‘0 Allaah by the right of your  Prophet...,’ or ‘by the right of the Sacred House... forgive me.’ and ‘0 Allaah bythe right of the
 Awliyaa
and the pious, and so and so, etc.’ or ‘0 Allaah by thehonour of the men of Allaah toYou, and by the honour of those in whose presencewe are, and under whose assistance we exist

SoorahAl-Ahzaab (33): 70-71The belief that any deceased person gives any help or assistance is a futile and false belief, and  seeking for such help from them is to call upon others besides Allaah for aid, and this is one of the types of Major Sfe’r/fe
