To call on and ask a Prophet or Wali for help
Such a practice is also labelled as Shirk in Dars-e-Tauheed although to indulge in such an act, keeping in mind that a Prophet is only a Prophet and a Wali is only a Wali, is in no way Shirk. This act only becomes a Shirk if one gives the Prophet or Wali a Godly status. Thus, consider the following incidents: -


Shah Waliallah Sahib Muhaddith Dehlawi (Rahmat-Allah) makes the following invocations to the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi wa Sallam)
O, the best of all creations, the blessing of Allah be on you,O, restorer of hope and the best of all granters,
O, you who is the best repeller of difficulties and,
O, you who is more generous than the rain clouds,
(Atyabun Naghm Fi Madahi Sayyidil Arab wal - Ajam - p. 22)

The same gentleman says in another place that when he presented himself at the Tomb of the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi wa Sallam) he proclaimed the Following:
"O Prophet of Allah, whatever Allah has granted you with, grant a little of it to me. I have come a long way for the love of you. You are a Mercy unto the worlds.Then there was a radiation and I experienced a bounty, which shrouded me in such a way that I became completely covered. And the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi wa Sallam)made clear to me the secrets, elevated me and helped me and showed me the method of seeking aid when I needed it and he explained me how he answers when anybody sends Durood upon him and how happy he becomes when anybody praises him.

It was the practice of the Shah Waliallah to emulate and remember daily the practices of Shaikh Muhammad Ghous Glawalyary (Rahmat-Allah Alahy) after seeking permission from his teachers

Moulana Abu Tahir Madani shaikh and Shaikh Muhammad Saeed Lahori (Rahmat-Allah-Alahy). In this (practice) is recorded the following.

"Call on Ali whose life is an open miracle. When you invoke him, he will help dispense all your difficulties." (al - Intibah Fi Salasil Awliya – Allah. P. 138)

Hazrat Moulana Shah Abdul Aziz Sahib Muhaddith Dehlawi (Rahmat-Allah-Alahy) says:

That if one knows that although all help comes from Allah, to call upon another for help is allowed. He says that Aulia and Prophets also sought help in this way. Thus if one asks for help from another, he is infect, asking for help from Allah. (Tafseer Azizi p. 10).
In Qasaid-e-Qasim page.6. Molvi Qasim Nanotwi invokes the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi wa Sallam) to render help and assistance and he says that there is none better than the Prophet to ask help from.

Ashraf Ali Thanwi in an Arabic quartet says:

O intercessor of the servants (of Allah) help me, you (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi wa Sallam)are my last hope. Besides you there is none to listen to my complaints,
O my Master listen to my complaints, I am encompassed by difficulties"
(Nasharut Teeb p 232).

Yet in another place he (Ashraf Ali Thanwi) states:

O Messenger of Allah helps me, for I am in great loss, I have become despondent after being to higher authority and now I am calling on you.
O beloved son of Amina have mercy upon me’ for I have spent my entire life span in sin, in all my deeds, small or big, I seek your intercession and even in the state of illness I seek your intercession." (Munajat-e-Maqbool Qurbat indallahi wa-Salawatir-Rasool - p.230).
Hazrat Haji Imdadullah Sahib Muhajir says:

O Muhammad Mustapha (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi wa Sallam) I have a complaint,
O Beloved of the Grandeur, I have a complaint. I am caught up in great calamities,
O solver of my troubles, I have a complaint."
(Nala-e-Imdad Gharib - p. 26).

And in his book Gulzar-e-Ma’rifat on page 4. Haji Imdadullah says

"You are the intercessor of the sinners-whither shall I go if I leave you, O Messenger of Allah?"
"The stern of the ship of theUmmat is in your hands, thus, if you wish, sink or steer to safety this ship, O Messenger of Allah"
"Imdad is caught in the snares of your love, so please set me free from the prison of both worlds, O Messenger of Allah."
Now, according to the author of Dars-e-Tauheed and those subscribing to it, are not the above mentioned personal mushriks? If they are mushriks, then are not those who follow these learned men also mushriks?
(NOTE: See "Ra-e-Haq" for a complete explanation with proof).
