Saying “Ya Muhammad, Ya Mansoor, Ummatak Ummatak”

Q: Is it permissible to recite the following as a Wazifa directly calling on Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam without believing him to be hazir nazir: ‘Ya  Muhammad, Ya Mansoor ,   Ummatak Ummatak ‘  in order to gain the  Messenger of Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam’s spiritual  attention and tawajjuh. Is there any precedent amongst our akabireen of having done the same or similar and  what of someone who has done the above but not believing Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam to be hazir nazir?


A: It is not appropriate to use these types of words that could leave doubts in your mind or the minds of other people.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
