O Muhammed, through your intermediary do i set my face towards my Lord……”? What is this ‘O Muhammed’ in this supplication? is this not shirk? … refer Hisn Haseen

there is a dua to recite after ‘Salatul Hajaat’ included by Allama Jazri(r.h) ..the translation is “O Allah, while setting my face towards You i beg You through the intermdeiary of Muhammed (sallahu alahai wasallam), ……..O Muhammed, through your intermediary do i set my face towards my Lord……”??? What is this ‘O Muhammed’ in this supplication? is this not shirk? (refer Hisnul Haseen – Darul Ishaat 1993 ed.)

Answer

The abovementioned Du’aa has been misinterpreted.

Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) himself commanded this Sahaabi
(Radhiallaahu Anhu) to make the Du’aa and to use the intermediary of himself
(Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)). This is not Shirk. Nabi
(Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) was alive and the Sahaabi was not asking Nabi
(Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) directly for any need. The Sahaabi was merely
using the blessed name of Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) as an
intermediary.
