Permissibility of Proclaiming Ya RASOOL ALLAH


To call out to the Prophet صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم is proven from the Holy Quran, the actions of the angels and the practice of the Sahaaba رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ and Ummah.

The Holy Quran has called out the Holy Prophet صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم in several places, e.g. “Ya Ayuhan-Nabi,” “Ya Ayuhar-Rasool,” etc. Calling to the Prophet صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم is proven from all of these ayats. Yes. other Ambiya were called by their names, e.g. “Ya Musa علیہ السلام,” “Ya Esa علیہ السلام,” “Ya Yaha علیہ السلام” etc. but our Beloved Master has been addressed with appreciative titles:

یاایھا النبی، یا ایھا الرسول، یا ایھا المزمل، یا ایھا المدثر

In fact the Holy Quran has even called out the general body of Muslims, “Ya Ayuhalazina Aamanoo,” and has ordered Muslims to call out and address the Holy Prophet صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم with cherished titles, “یاایھا الذین امنوا لا تجعلوا دعاء الرسول بینکم کدعاء بعضکم بعضا ”5.1.This ayat doesn’t disallow addressing the Holy Prophet صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم .Rather, it says that he shouldn’t be addressed like ordinary people.

The Holy Quran states “Call and address them, relating them to their fathers 5.2″This verse allows calling out to Hadrat Zaid ibn Haaritha رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ. However, he should not be addressed as “the son of Rasoolullah صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم “, but the son of Haaritha”. Likewise, the Kuffaar have been allowed to call their helpers for assistance “واعوا شھداء کم من دون اللہ ان کنتم صدیقین”, 5.3.

In the first Hadith of Mishkaat Sharif, Hadrat Jibraeel علیہ السلامsubmitted “یا محمد اخبرنی عن الالسلام”, Calling out (nidaa) is found here. At the time of the Holy Prophet’s صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم passing away, the Angel of Death علیہ السلام said, “یا محمد ان اللہ ارسلنی الیک” ­Mishkaat. Baabu Wafaatin-Nabi.

Calling out is proven here as well. Hadrat Uthman ibn Haneef رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ reports that a hlind person came to Rasoolullah صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم and requested a dua. Sayyiduna Rasoolullah صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم instructed him to make the following supplication, “O Allah عزوجل I ask from Thee and turn towards You with the Prophet of Mercy, Muhammad صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم. Ya Muhammad صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم I have turned towards my Lord using your means in this need of mine so that it is fulfilled.

Ya Allah عزوجل Accept the intercession of Rasoolullah صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم for me.” Hadrat Abu Isbaaq رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ states that this Hadith is Sahib (sound).” ­Ibn Majah, Baabu Salaatil-Haaja.

This dua was taught to all Muslims until the Day of Qiyaamat. It proves that the permissibility of calling out, and help from the Prophet صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم was invoked in it.


Proof 1: From Sahih bukhari


Abu baker (Ra) calling Prophet (Saw) as “YA”
After his death from Sahih bukhari

sahih Bukhari Vol 2 book 23 Hadith 333
Narrated ‘Aisha.(ra) :

Abu Bakr came riding his horse from his dwelling place in As-Sunh. He got down from it, entered the Mosque and did not speak with anybody till he came to me and went direct to the Prophet, who was covered with a marked blanket. Abu Bakr uncovered his face. He knelt down and kissed him and then started weeping and said, “My father and my mother be sacrificed for you, O Allah’s Prophet!(Ya Rasool Allah) Allah will not combine two deaths on you. You have died the death which was written for you.” (hadith continues )

Here from bukhari even Abu Baker (ra) used YA RASOOL ALLAH after Prophet’s (صلی اللہ علیھ وآلھ وسلم) death,

Why did Abu baker (Radhiallah) used the word Ya Rasool Allah (صلی اللہ علیھ وآلھ وسلم) after His (صلی اللہ علیھ وآلھ وسلم) death if it was Haram or a forbidden act .

Imam Bukhari wrote a complete chapter “What a man says when his foot goes to sleep” ‘Abdu’r-Rahman ibn Sa’d said, “Ibn ‘Umar’s foot went to sleep and a man said to him, ‘Mention the person you love most.’ He said, ‘O (Ya) Muhammad.'” [Al-Adab al-Mufrad Al-Bukhari, Hadith Number 964]

Abu Nu’aym related to us who said that Sufyan related to us from Abu Ishaq from Abdar Rahman ibn Sa’d, who said:

Ibn Umar had numbness in his leg, whereupon a man said to him:

“Remember the most beloved of people to you”, so he said: “Ya Muhammad”

Imam al-Bukhari in Adab al-Mufrad (Hadith No. 964):

Scanned page

Substantiating this, Allama Shahaab Khafaaji Misri (radi Allahu anhu) states in his “Naseem-ur Riyaaz” a commentary of the “Shifa” by Imaam Qaadi Ayaaz (radi Allahu anhu), that it is an established practice of the people of Medina Shareef to proclaim “Ya Muhammadah” in times of difficulty and anxiety.

Now on this hadith some ignorants claim thats it
Weak although Imam Bukhari [rah] recorded it in chapter of when leg becomes numb
,

They usually criticize two narrators, Ibn Ishaq and Imam Sufyan ath-Thawri (rah)
,

They say
,

in some makhtoot of adab wal mufrad and narrations the word YA does’nt exist
only Muhammad exist
see this

قال: حدثنا أبو نعيم قال: حدثنا سفيان عن أبي إسحاق عن عبد الرحمن بن سعد قال:

خدرت رجل ابن عمر، فقال له رجل: أذكر أحب الناس إليك فقال: محمد.
Here only Muhammad Exist
الأدب المفرد” (964) Nuskha of misar and its even not in the nuskha of sangla hill india
2ndly
abu ishaaq in the chain is mudallis and he is narrating from (un)
abu ishaq is mudallis (tabqat ul mudalliseen)
and if mudallis narrate from (un) then he is not acceptable
قال ابن معين: سمع منه ابن عيينة بعدما تغير.
Ibn e moieen said ibn e uyuniya said taghaiyur ka shikar ho gya tha

,

Refuting Forgery of above objection that Ya Muhammad [saw] is not present
,

. In the printed edition of the Adab al-Mufrad by Samir al-Zuhayri (who utilised al-Albani’s gradings from his edition) it does have the “Ya” included.

The “Ya” Muhammad portion is also found in the Arabic text of the English printed edition by Yusuf Talal DeLorenzo (p. 414, no. 967) – but he left the “Ya” untranslated

Another narration with “Ya Muhammad” in its wording is also recorded by i) Ali ibn al Ja’d in his Musnad (no. 2539, see also Tahdhib al-Kamal of al-Mizzi and Tabaqat ibn Sa’d below) as follows:
,

وبه عن أبي إسحاق ، عن عبد الرحمن بن سعد قال : كنت عند عبد الله بن عمر فخدرت رجله فقلت له : يا أبا عبد الرحمن ، ما لرجلك ؟ قال : ” اجتمع عصبها من هاهنا ، قلت : ادع أحب الناس إليك ، قال : يا محمد ، فانبسطت
,
ii) Ibn al-Sunni in his Amal wal yaum wal Layla (no. 171):

أخبرني أحمد بن الحسن الصوفي ، حدثنا علي بن الجعد ، ثنا زهير ، عن أبي إسحاق ، عن عبد الرحمن بن سعد ، قال : ” كنت عند ابن عمر ، فخدرت رجله ، فقلت : يا أبا عبد الرحمن ، ما لرجلك ؟ قال : اجتمع عصبها من هاهنا . قلت : ادع أحب الناس إليك . فقال : يا محمد . فانبسطت ”

This clearly show that some groups are doing forgery scanned page

The first 2 routes which are in number 167 and 169 are weaker in the sanad than that of al-Bukhari’s Adab al-Mufrad but for Asim all of these variations proved that the wording “Ya Muhammad” was used, Allah o akbar
,

In the 4 chains presented to date, all of them contain Abu Ishaq al-Sabii and he has narrated to 4 different students:

► Sufyan (as in Adab al-Mufrad and Ibn Sa’d’s Tabaqat)
► Zuhayr ibn Mu’awiya (as in Tabaqat of Ibn Sa’d)
►Isra’il ibn Yunus (as in Ibn al Sunni)
►Abu Bakr ibn Ayyash (as in ibn al-Sunni)

Proof 2

A Sahabi (radhitallah anho) and 2nd Caliph Hadrat Umar (radhitallah anho) benefiting from intercession of Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم),

أخبرنا أبو نصر بن قتادة، وأبو بكر الفارسي قالا: حدثنا أبو عمر بن مطر، حدثنا إبراهيم بن علي الذهلي، حدثنا يحيى بن يحيى، حدثنا أبو معاوية، عن الأعمش، عن أبي صالح، عن مالك قال: أصاب الناس قحط في زمن عمر بن الخطاب، فجاء رجل إلى قبر النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم. فقاليا رسول الله استسق الله لأمتك فإنهم قد هلكوا. فأتاه رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم في المنام فقال: إيت عمر، فأقرئه مني السلام، وأخبرهم أنه مسقون، وقل له عليك بالكيس الكيس. فأتى الرجل فأخبر عمر، فقال: يا رب ما آلوا إلا ما عجزت عنه.

During the reign of Hazrat Umar (رضى الله عنه) a draught badly threatened the ummah. A person went to Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)’s grave and sought for help saying YA RAsool Allah (O PRophet ). The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) came into his dream, gave him “basharat” (glad tiding) of rain, and also asked him to warn Hazrat Umar (رضى الله عنه) about the coming threats. Hazrat Umar (رضى الله عنه), when listened his dream wept and assured that he would remain careful as much as possible.

Quran says

{ وَمَآ أَرْسَلْنَا مِن رَّسُولٍ إِلاَّ لِيُطَاعَ بِإِذْنِ ٱللَّهِ وَلَوْ أَنَّهُمْ إِذ ظَّلَمُوۤاْ أَنْفُسَهُمْ جَآءُوكَ فَٱسْتَغْفَرُواْ ٱللَّهَ وَٱسْتَغْفَرَ لَهُمُ ٱلرَّسُولُ لَوَجَدُواْ ٱللَّهَ تَوَّاباً رَّحِيماً }

(O beloved!) And if they had come to you, when they had wronged their souls, and asked forgiveness of Allah, and the Messenger also had asked forgiveness for them, they (on the basis of this means and intercession) would have surely found Allah the Granter of repentance, extremely Merciful. (Quran surah Al-Nisa 4:64)

Tafsir Ibn e Khatir for surah Al-Nisa4:64

لحكاية المشهورة عن العتبي، قال: كنت جالساً عند قبر النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فجاء أعرابي فقال: السلام عليك يا رسول الله، سمعت الله يقول: { وَلَوْ أَنَّهُمْ إِذ ظَّلَمُوۤاْ أَنفُسَهُمْ جَآءُوكَ فَٱسْتَغْفَرُواْ ٱللَّهَ وَٱسْتَغْفَرَ لَهُمُ ٱلرَّسُولُ لَوَجَدُواْ ٱللَّهَ تَوَّاباً رَّحِيماً } وقد جئتك مستغفراً لذنبي، مستشفعاً بك إلى ربي. ثم أنشأ يقول:
يا خَيْرَ مَنْ دُفِنَتْ بِالقاعِ أَعْظُمُهُ فَطابَ مِنْ طِيْبِهِنَّ القاعُ والأَكَمُ
نَفْسِي الفِداءُ لِقَبْرٍ أَنْتَ ساكِنُهُ فيهِ العَفافُ وفيهِ الجُودُ والكَرَمُ
ثم انصرف الأعرابي، فغلبتني عيني، فرأيت النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم في النوم، فقال: يا عتبي الحق الأعرابي، فبشره أن الله قد غفر له».

Allah is exhorting the sinners and evildoers that when they commit sins and errors they should call on the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and ask forgiveness from Allah. They should also request the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) to pray for them. When they do so, Allah will turn to them and forgive them and He will show mercy to them. That is why He used the words la-wajadullāha tawwāban-rahīmā (they (on the basis of this means and intercession) would have surely found Allah the Granter of repentance, extremely Merciful).

Many have stated this tradition. One of them is Abū Mansūr Sabbāgh who writes in his book al-Hikāyāt-ul-mashhūrah that, according to ‘Utbī, once he was sitting beside the Prophet’s grave when a bedouin came and he said, “Peace be on you, O Allah’s Messenger. I have heard that Allah says: ‘(O beloved!) And if they had come to you, when they had wronged their souls, and asked forgiveness of Allah, and the Messenger also had asked forgiveness for them, they (on the basis of this means and intercession) would have surely found Allah the Granter of repentance, extremely Merciful.’ I have come to you, asking forgiveness for my sins and I make you as my intermediary before my Lord and I have come to you for this purpose.”

Then he recited these verses:
,
يا خَيْرَ مَنْ دُفِنَتْ بِالقاعِ أَعْظُمُهُ فَطابَ مِنْ طِيْبِهِنَّ القاعُ والأَكَمُ
نَفْسِي الفِداءُ لِقَبْرٍ أَنْتَ ساكِنُهُ فيهِ العَفافُ وفيهِ الجُودُ والكَرَمُ
“O(YA), the most exalted among the buried people who improved the worth of the plains and the hillocks! May I sacrifice my life for this grave which is made radiant by you, (the Prophet,) the one who is (an embodiment) of mercy and forgiveness.”

Then the bedouin went away and I fell asleep. In my dream I saw the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). He said to me: O ‘Utbī, the bedouin is right, go and give him the good news that Allah has forgiven his sins

Narrated Abu Hurayra I heard the Prophet say: “By the one in Whose hand is Abu al-Qasim’s soul, `Isa ibn Maryam shall descend as a just and wise ruler. He shall destroy the cross, slay the swine, eradicate discord and grudges, and money shall be offered to him but he will not accept it.

Mentioned in the Qur’an:

Quran states: So Salih left them, saying: “O my people! I did indeed convey to you the message for which I was sent by my Lord: I gave you good counsel, but ye love not good counselors!”(Quran surah Ar’aaf 7:79)
,
The word “O my people! is mentioned for those who died, it surely conveys the idea that they(kafirs) cannot only Hear but also alive in their grave ,

Tafsir ibn e Khateer Says for 7:79

هذا تقريع من صالح عليه السلام لقومه، لما أهلكهم الله بمخالفتهم إياه، وتمردهم على الله، وإبائهم عن قبول الحق، وإعراضهم عن الهدى إلى العمى، قال لهم صالح ذلك بعد هلاكهم، تقريعاً وتوبيخاً، وهم يسمعون ذلك، كما ثبت في الصحيحين: أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم لما ظهر على أهل بدر،

Translation: These were the words of admonishment which Salih exchanged with his nation after “ALLAH HAD DESTROYED THEM” for denying him and also becoming renegades against him, rejecting to accept the Haqq (truth) plus giving preference to misguidance over guidance. Hadrat Salih (a.s) said these words after they were “DESTROYED AND THEY HEARD THEM (WORDS) TOO”

In relevance to this It is narrated in the 2 books of Sahih (i.e. Bukhari and Muslim) that the Messenger (saw) defeated the kufaar in Badr … (then Imam Ibn Kathir mentions the sahih hadith of dead hearing the cal; as mentioned before)

[Tafsir Ibn Kathir under 7:79 for this Quranic verse]

Arabic source
Proof 6

Narrated Abu Talha:

“On the day of Badr, the Prophet ordered that the corpses of twenty four leaders of Quraish should be thrown into one of the dirty dry wells of Badr. When he halted at the edge of the well, he addressed the corpses of the Quraish infidels by their names and their fathers’ names, “O [YA] so-and-so, son of so-and-so and O so-and-so, son of so-and-so! Would it have pleased you if you had obeyed Allah and His Apostle? We have found true what our Lord promised us. Have you too found true what your Lord promised you? “‘Umar said, “O Allah’s Apostle! You are speaking to bodies that have no souls!” Allah’s Apostle said, “By Him in Whose Hand Muhammad’s soul is, you do not hear, what I say better than they do.”

[Sahih Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 59, Number 314]

above the Aqah Karim (صلی اللہ علیھ وآلھ وسلم has used the word YA (O) for dead non muslims which is clear proof that it was can used even after death as dead are alive .So if Sahih hadiths prove using it for Dead kafirs than how can one call using it for Aqah Karim (صلی اللہ علیھ وآلھ وسلم) as Shirk [Naoozbilla]

 

Proof 7

And Anas b. Malik reported that:

Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) let the dead bodies of the unbelievers who fought in Badr (lie unburied) for three days. He then came to them and sat by their side and called them and said: O Abu Jahl b. Hisham, O Umayya b. Khalaf, O Utba b. Rab’ila, O Shaiba b. Rabi’a, have you not found what your Lord had promised with you to be correct? As for me, I have found the promises of my Lord to be (perfectly) correct. Umar listened to the words of Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) and said: Allah’s Messenger, how do they listen and respond to you? They are dead and their bodies have decayed. Thereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: By Him in Whose Hand is my life, what I am saying to them, even you cannot hear more distinctly than they, but they lack the power to reply. Then’he commanded that they should be buried in the well of Badr.

[Sahih Muslim, Book 040, Number 6869]

,
Note:-

Here the Prophet (saleh ala waalihi wasalam) said , even you cannot hear more distinctly than they , Hence it proves that even Kafirs who are Dead can hear more clearly then alive can or equally let alone be Muslims and Prophets (aleh islam)
,
. Rasool Allah [saleh ala waalihi wasalam] says “O Abu Jahl….. O Umayya….. O Utba…” for Kafirs after they died, Then why cant we use “Ya Rasool Allah [saww] for our Beloved Prophet (saleh ala walihi wasalam) after his death ,

Proof 8

Sahih Hadith states:

مَرَّ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ بِقُبُورِ الْمَدِينَةِ فَأَقْبَلَ عَلَيْهِمْ بِوَجْهِهِ فَقَالَ السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ يَا أَهْلَ الْقُبُورِ يَغْفِرُ اللَّهُ لَنَا وَلَكُمْ أَنْتُمْ سَلَفُنَا وَنَحْنُ بِالْأَثَرِ

Sayyindina lbn Abbas narrated that Allah’s Messenger — passed by some graves of Madinah. He turned his face towards them, and said: Peace be on you, O people of the grave![ السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ يَا أَهْلَ الْقُبُورِ] May Allah forgive us and you. You have gone before us and we are to follow.

[Sunan tirmidhi Chapter 59 Hadith # 1055]

See how Aqah karim [salehalawaalihi wasalam] taught the whole ummah a Dua to recite for the dead or near the graves using the word “YA”

Proof 9 : What does Every muslim Recites in Salah 5 times a day

Thats the translation of Attahiyat recited in every salat

“All the best compliments and the prayers and the good things are for Allah. Peace and Allah’s Mercy and Blessings be on you, O (YA) Prophet! Peace be on us and on the pious slaves of Allah, I testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, and I also testify that Muhammad is Allah’s slave and His Apostle.”[end]

so all muslims say , O (YA) Prophet every day in salat, even after His (صلی اللہ علیھ وآلھ وسلم) death, is it shirk , is ummah doing shirk ?? These all arguments are from Sahih hadiths and most authentic Wahabi/salafi tafsirs [e.g Tafseer ibn kathir ]. And these prove without a doubt that saying YA for Prophets [aleh islam] and Great Pious Muslims [awliyas] is a Sunnah.

Proof # 10

Now coming to other Salafs [taba tabeen] even Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal ( رحمة الله عليه ) endorsed istighatha

Ibn Kathir reports:

قال الامام أحمد حججت خمس حجج منها ثلاث راجلا أنفقت في احدى هذه الحجج ثلاثين درهما قال وقد ضللت في بعضها عن الطريق وأنا ماش فجعلت أقول يا عباد الله دلوني على الطريق فلم أزل أقول ذالك حتى وقفت على الطريق( البداية والنهاية 10-418

Imam Ahmad( رحمة الله عليه ) told: I have performed hajj (pilgrimage) five times of which three were on foot. I have spent 30 Dirhams in one Hajj. In one of my pilgrimages I lost my way. And I was walking. Then I began to tell “ O the servants of Allah, help me on my way. And I continued this till reach the way.

(al bidaya wal nihaya)

Hadith # 12

Abdullah bin Masud [ra] has narrated that the Prophet(صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said:

When you lose your means of transport in a jungle, you should call: ‘O creatures of Allah! Help me, recover my transport! O creatures of Allah! Help me, recover my transport!’ There are many of Allah’s creatures on this earth. They will help you recover it.
