Invoking and asking the prophets and the righteous people for protection and help

Question: There is a Muslim who claims to acknowledge the fundamentals of monotheism, but when he sees something falling and he does not want it to be broken or damaged, he seeks help saying, “O Messenger of Allaah” or “O Shaykh Ahmad Al-Teejaanee.” Are his words counted as Shirk (associating others with Allaah in His Divinity or in worship)? Or speaking such words incurs no guilt and the person who says them will not be regarded as a Mushrik (one who associates others with Allaah in His Divinity or worship) and his deeds will not turn fruitless because of saying them?Please provide your legal opinion in writing and furnish it with evidence from the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Messenger (peace be upon him).

Answer: We should be fully aware that Allah (Exalted be He) Alone is the Guardian over everything, the All-Knower of everything. If a person wants to be safe when falling or fears that he or one of his relatives may be afflicted with a calamity, regardless of the conditions, he should resort to Allaah (Exalted be He)… read more here.
