1. Is it permissible to ask a dead person to make dua to Allah on our behalf?
2. Is it permissible to make dua like this: “O Allah I ask you through the waseela of Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) and the pious people’ and ‘O Allah I ask you through the easels of your attributes and the Quran’?
1. There is no basis for this.
2. It is permissible.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
