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 (present):
‘Ya Muhammad, Ya Mansoor, Ummatak Ummatak’ يا محمد يا منصور اُمتـك اُمتـك in order to gain the Messenger of Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam’s spiritual attention and tawajjuh?
Is there any precedent amongst our akabireen (pious elders) 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 (present)?
A: It is not correct to recite this wazifa. One should call out to Allah for assistence.
And Allah knows best
