Reading a book that includes Tawassul through the Prophet and asking for his intercession

Question: What is the ruling on reading the book entitled “Dalaa’il Al-Khayrat” by Imaam Muhammad ibn Sulaymaan Al-Jazoolee which contains daily Awrad (oft-recited invocations) that include beseeching and seeking to approach Allaah (Tawassul) by means of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and begging him for his Shafaa‘ah (intercession), such as saying, “O Muhammad! O our beloved! We are beseeching your Lord in your name, so please intercede for us with the Great Lord” and also, “O Allaah! We seek by his virtue his intercession for us with You; for he is the most eminent intercessor with You. We adjure You by him, as he is the greatest one to adjure You by his right. We seek to draw close to You through him, as he is the nearest means to You, descendant of the most noble origin.”

Answer: If this book includes Tawassul by means of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and seeking his intercession with Allah to have one’s requests granted, it is impermissible for you to read it, as Allaah says (what means): Say: “To Allaah belongs all intercession.” (Soorah Al-Zumar, 39: 44)… read more here.
