Shafa'at is completely different from shirk
- The word comes from the Arabic word for 'double'
-- The dua is done with the help of the shafi; the shafi is the partner of the person making dua, not the partner of Allah SWT
- Although there are 17 verses in the Holy Qur'an that deny shafa'at from anyone from Allah, but there are also 11 verses that allow it
-- The right of intercession belongs only to Allah, but He has authorized it to certain individuals
-- Examples:
--- Surah an-Nisa - asking forgiveness through Prophet Muhammad (saww)
--- Surah Yusuf - brothers of Prophet Yusuf (as) ask for help through their father, Prophet Yaqub (as)
--- Surah Munafiqun - avoiding the shafi is a sign of arrogance

In response to those that say it's allowed if the shafi is alive, but not when they are not alive:
- At most you can say the dua is futile, but you can not label the people as mushrik
- Even in salaat, all Muslims say Assalaamu alaika -- addressing the Prophet as "you"
- When it comes to life and death of the Prophet (saw) and Ahlul Bayt (as), our limitations of the dunya do not exist for them

-- Date: 10 Shawwal 1435 / August 7, 2014
-- Occasion: Thursday Night Program / Commemoration of Yaum-e-Gham
