FAQ14: In the Quran Allah (swt) says in one place that it is He who takes the souls at the time of death (39:42, 6:60) and in another place the Quran says that it is the Angel of death who takes the souls (32:11), we decude from it that Allah (swt) has delegated the task of taking souls to the Angel of death, therefore both the verse are correct. So this shows that Allah (swt) does not perform every task directly, rather He delegates the tasks to his creatures, so if we believe that the Imams (as) have been delegated with the task of creation, helping and sustenance, how is that shirk?

FAQ10: Sermon 234 of Nahjul Balagha proves that the Prophet (saww) can hear us after his death….

FAQ10: Sermon 234 of Nahjul Balagha proves that the Prophet (saww) can hear us after his death and the kind of wasila we use in Dua Tawassul is correct.

FAQ9: We say salam to the prophet in salat, it means he can hear us….

FAQ9: We say “assalamu alaika ya ayyuha nabiyyu” in every prayer, this mean that the Prophet (saww) listens to us. Also we have in history that the Prophet (saww) addressed the dead people after the battle of badr, and Imam Ali (as) addressed the dead people after battle of Nahrawan and Prophet Shuayb (as) address dead people of his nation (7:93).
