    Asking a dead person to make dua for you (I.e. asking them to make dua to Allah) is not Shirk. Whether it is permissible or not is a reasonable ground for difference of opinion (though the vast majority say it is). Some believe the dead can hear and others believe they can't. Allah is capable of all things.
    I am sure asking the dead to make du'a for you is not permissible. If you ask a dead person for dua it means you believe he can hear you and such an attribute belongs to Allah alone.

      Shaykh Sa'id Nursi was also imprisoned for preaching Islam. Therefore he is a scholar of the truth, right?

        No that doesnt mean he is a scholar of truth, but also it doesnt mean he is not sincere.

          I did not give what position I adhered to - that's beyond the point of the conversation. I said that the person I mentioned is not a disbeliever as they ask someone to make dua to Allah for them. You can believe it is prohibited to do so with your evidences, but you cannot say that it is shirk for someone to ask someone else, dead or alive, to make dua for them. By Shirk I mean worshipping other than Allah - this takes one out of the fold of Islam.

          Regarding whether asking the dead to make dua for you is permissible then if you want to I can provide you with evidence, but its a fiqhi matter with reasonable grounds for disagreement, as one can cite other evidences etc.

          Those who support the position of permissibility of asking the dead to make dua for you cite, amongst other Hadith, the following:

          Sayyiduna Malik al-Dar, the treasurer of food during the time of Sayyiduna ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab (radiyallahu ‘anhu), reports that once the people had been experiencing a drought in the era of Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu), a man went to the grave of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) and said,

          ‘O Rasulullah, ask for rain on behalf of your ummah, for verily, they are being destroyed.’

          Thereafter this person was instructed in a dream to go to Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) and tell him that, ‘the rains will soon come and say to him, Be intelligent’, When ‘Umar Radiyallahu Anhu was informed of this, he began to cry and he said, ‘O My Lord, I will only leave out what I am unable to do.’

          - Musannaf ibn Abi Shaybah 12/31-32; Dala’il Al-nubuwwah of Imam al-Bayhaqi 7/47

          Hafiz Ibn Kathir Rahimullah Alay has stated that the chain of narrators is "good and strong"

          - Musnad al-Faruq 1/223
          Imam Ibn Abi Shaybah Rahimullah Alay (d. 235 H) was an Early Muhaddith, and the teacher of Imam al-Bukhari and his Musannaf is an earlier work of Hadith containing a large amount of reports (it is the largest primary Hadith collection).

          Imam al-Bayhaqi Rahimullah Alay (d. 458 H) was a later Muhaddith, famous for his Sunnan work which is amongst the last primary Hadith collections (i.e. collections with chains from the author to the Prophet Alayhis Salam/ Sahabah). The work where he mentions this Hadith is a work known as "Proofs of Prophethood" as the above incident is also regarded as a miracle.

          Imam Ibn Kathir Rahimullah Alay (d. 774 H) is the famous historian, hadith scholar and mufassir. He was a student of Imam Ibn Taymiyyah, Imam ad-Dhahabi and Imam al-Mizzi etc.

            How do you know to even trust this Abdullah Faisal in the first place?

            You have not told me what makes a scholar a scholar of the truth. I asked you and you said,

            Most of scholars whom I follow were imprisoned for preaching the true message of Islam. There is no such a scholar who will accept such a test for speaking the truth except the truthful ones who want to please their Lord and not People.
            But now you are admitting that doesn't make one a scholar of the truth. So what does?

            Something tells me that you do not follow just the Qur'an and Sunnah as you claim...

            How do you know these mere men are conveying to you the truth? Does anyone who picks up the Qur'an and and quotes from the Sunnah become a person of the truth? Or is it the first person you go to who pleases your Nafs?

              I dont follow any scholar blindly. I always go for a proof from the Qur'an or Sunnah. When I was new to Islam I used to Listen to People like Mufti Menk, Yasir Qadhi, Nouman Ali Khan, Hamza yusuf, Omar suleimsn and their likes, but when I realised how they are trying to westernize Islam I choose not to Listen to them.

                jazakAllah for the answer.

                I'll check this.

                    Islam was made for all cultures and centuries. Which part of the world do you reside and/or spent most of your life?

                    These are all popular shuyookh. People make mistakes. We're all human. You take the good and leave the bad. I don't agree with all of them, but I can assure you they're not trying to change anything about Islam.

                      And obey Allah and the Messenger that you may obtain mercy.

                      (Sahih International's Interpretation of al-Qur'an, Surah Ali' Imran, Ayah 132)
                      Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr bin Al-'As:

                      that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: "Indeed Allah does not take away knowledge by removing it from the people, but He takes away knowledge by taking the scholars, until there remains no scholar and the people begin to ask the ignorant leaders, so they give their verdict without knowledge. They will go astray and lead the people astray."

                      - Jami` at-Tirmidhi 2652; Imam at-Tirmidhi rates it soundly authentic.
                      Narrated Ibn `Umar:

                      The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "O Allah! Bestow Your blessings on our Sham! O Allah! Bestow Your blessings on our Yemen." The People said, "And also on our Najd." He said, "O Allah! Bestow Your blessings on our Sham (north)! O Allah! Bestow Your blessings on our Yemen." The people said, "O Allah's Apostle! And also on our Najd." I think the third time the Prophet (ﷺ) said, "There (in Najd) is the place of earthquakes and afflictions and from there comes out the side of the head of Satan."

                      - Sahih al-Bukhari 7094; Chapter: The Saying of the Prophet Sallahu Alayhi Wa Salam "The Tribulation will come from the East"

                      Imam al-Bukhari writes his own chapter titles.
                      Hudhaifa bin al-Yaman Radiyallahu An said that the Prophet Salallahu Alayhi Wa Salam said:

                      Verily, I fear about a man from you who will read the Qur'an so much that his face will become enlightened and he will come to personify Islam. This will continue until Allah desires. Then these things will be taken away from him when he will disregard them by putting them all behind his back and will attack his neighbor with the sword accusing him of Shirk. The Prophet peace be upon him was asked, "which of the two will be deserving of such an accusation? - The attacker or the attacked?" The Prophet replied, "the attacker (the one accusing the other of Shirk)"

                      - Tarikh ul Kabir 4/301, Sahih ibn Hibban, (w/ Tahqiq Nasir Albani), 1/200, Hadith 81. (al-Albani said: 'this hadith is hasan'), Tafsir Ibn Kathir 2/266. (Ibn Kathir Rahimullah Alay rated the hadith "jayyid" i.e. "good").

                      Text from Sahih Ibn Hibban.
                      I quoted to you a Hadith and its authentication whilst you quoted the saying of a man who lives more than 1400 years after RasulAllah Salallahu Alayhi Wa Salam, who I can show you contradicts the men who came before him.

                      You started this discussion by saying you follow just the Qur'an and Sunnah.

                      You then admit you follow men, I asked you why you follow those men, and you couldn't answer.

                      You then asked me for evidence for something - and since you told me you only follow Qur'an and Sunnah - I provided you with a Hadith.

                      In response, rather than verifying the references etc., you went and found a fatwa of a man whose reliability you cannot prove to me, and he misquotes the Qur'an talking about the Mushrikin calling upon the Idols and applies it to the one who goes and asks the dead to make dua to Allah for him - when the verses he quotes do not say that - it is his inference and what he says contradicts the Hadith I quoted to you.

                      He is like the man prophesised in the Hadith above. In fact he is likely the follower of that man.

                      So let me put a question to you, o follower of the Qur'an and Sunnah, why do you oppose a clear Hadith for the opinion of a man?

                      So admit it - you don't follow just the Qur'an and Sunnah, you follow the interpretation of the Qur'an and Sunnah according to men who you follow for no particular reason.


                      There are others who follow other men - why do you say they are wrong if you are doing the same things as them?
