Tawassul by the rights of prophets and Awliyaa’ and through their honor

Question: Would you please give us your opinion on the letter sent by Shaykh Sulaymaan ibn Sahman to Shaykh `Alee ibn `Abd-Allaah ibn `Eesaa in which he refutes the claim of those who say that it is permissible to perform Tawassul (supplicate to Allaah through a means), such as by the rights of prophets and pious people and to ask their help. He stated that Shaykh Al-Islaam said that he knew no opinion permitting it, and that it is also not permissible to swear by our Prophet (peace be upon him), contrary to what was mentioned by Al-`Iz ibn `Abdul-Salaam, due to the evaluation of the authenticity of the Hadeeth.
