 Adam‟s intermediation through the Beloved Prophet
şallAllāhu álayhi wa sallam 
 
 The process of intermediation through the Beloved Prophet
şallAllāhu álayhi wa 
sallam 
is acontinuous process and changes in fashion have never been able to hobble its popularity andeffectiveness among the Muslims. It existed before his creation and during his physical life and ithas continued to exist after his worldly demise and will continue to be popular and effective in
future. It was Adam‟s practice to offer the Beloved Prophet
şallAllāhu álayhi wa 
sallam 
asintermediary to Allah for the forgiveness of his lapses. When he chose the Beloved Prophet
şallAllāhu álayhi wa 
sallam 
as his intermediator, Allah condoned his act of disobedience. Whatcould be a greater example of the immediate effectiveness of mediation when it is channelizedthrough the Beloved Prophet
şallAllāhu álayhi wa 
sallam 
?at-
 Tabarānī, al
-
Bayhaqī, Ibn Ul
-Mundhir and as-
Suyūtī narrated this tradition through „Umar bin
al-
Khattāb and „Alī that the Beloved Prophet
şallAllāhu álayhi wa 
sallam 
said, Adam was just about to repent for his act of disobedience that he suddenly recalled in hisstate of anxiety that he had seen
lā ilāha illallāhu Muhammad 
-ur- 
rasūlullāh 
(there is no godbut Allah, Muhammad [ 
şallAllāhu álayhi wa 
sallam 
 ]
is Allah‟s Messenger) inscribed on the Throne at the time of his birth.”
It obviously meant that the distinction the Beloved Prophet
şallAllāhu álayhi wa 
sallam 
possesses is
denied to others. That is the reason his name was inscribed along with Allah‟s Own name. At
this, he added these words of intermediation to his prayer for divine forgiveness:
(O Allah,) I beg Your forgiveness through the mediation of Muhammad [ 
şallAllāhu 
álayhi wa sallam  ].
” 
  The tradition related by Ibn Ul-Mundhir has the following words:
O Allah, I beg Your forgiveness through Your beloved and most honoured servantMuhammad [ 
şallAllāhu álayhi wa 
sallam 
 ] and through his distinction You have blessed him with.

 By the addi
tion of these words of intermediation, the Prophet Adam‟s
'alayhis salam 
repentance was accepted immediately.
“Allah said, “In fact, Muhammad is the most beloved of all My creatures. Since you have
intermediated your petition through him, I have granted it. And were it not for
Muhammad, I would not have created you.””
 
 Tabarānī further adds that Allah said, “
He is the Last Prophet among your children.
 
Imam Hākim has phrased the tradition in these words:
