1. Is there shirk in naats?
2. Is it okay to ask ya Ali madad?
1. If we know the wordings we will be able to tell you.
2. Hadhrat Ali (radhiyallahu anhu) is not Allah Ta`ala. Hence, he is not present nor can he be of any assistance to you directly. How can this ever be right.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
