Answer

(Fatwa: 2132/1727=B/1429)

 

It is not allowed to pray to the dead for help and assistance:

قال الشیخ عبد الحق الدھلوي: أما الإستمداد بأهل القبور في غير النبى والأنبياء فقد انكره كثير من الفقهاء

قال الإمام البغوي في المعالم: الاستعانة نوع تعبد والعبادة

وفی الحدیث عن ابن عباس قال كنت خلف رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يوما فقال: يا غلام احفظ الله يحفظك, احفظ الله تجده تجاهك و إذا استعنت فا ستعن بالله ?الخ

The story you have written from the book: Arwaah-e-Thalatha, it means that Allah Almighty is All-powerful, He can personify anyone for the help of others, and it is not in the power of a sheikh or debater, as Hadhrat Yaqoob (عليه السلام) was personified in front of Hadhrat Yusuf (عليه السلام).

Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) knows Best

Darul Ifta,
Darul Uloom Deoband
