  5. Did Imam Ahmad seek tabarruk from the Prophet (S)’s relics?
  6. He was beaming with light, enlightening others… He was one of the Imams of his age… Who was Ad-Dhahabi and Ibn Hajr talking about?

    salam… since you cannot even reach the Prophet’s grave, I am not sure how one of the issues addressed applies.

    so, avoid Tashbih while affirming tawhid of Allah’s Attributes and Essence;

    Imam abu Hanifa (radhi Allahu anh) was a great scholar of the Salaf-us-Salih and should not be slighted;

    people should avoid arguments over delicate and disputed matters and not get involved in intricate theological disputes that don’t benefit them;

    and weeping at the Prophet’s (sal Allahu alayhi wa Salaam) tomb is a sign of love, and those who go to excess should be gently taught, not abused;

    funny how when I say the same things I’m told I’m an extremist by some….

    asalaamalikum Akhi Dawud… I hope you weren’t called extremist on this site for saying any of the things above. They are quite “normal” in the sense of what we understood.

    The problem at the grave is not the “weeping out of love”; rather, it is the directing of worship like dua’ towards the Prophet (S)’s grave. IF there was an opportunity, some people would be in sujood like you see at some of the saints’ tombs.

    ‘tracing the traces of barakah’

    Regarding the above section, is there anyone today who denies tabarruk with the Prophet’s relics?

    And, can the Prophet’s relics be found today?

    Br. al-Harrani, Abu Aaliyah had a response for your question in the Gold Pt.1
