Art.5; Gangohi, Fatawa-e-Rashidiyya, 1:112: “It is permissible to be present at the noble grave of the Messenger of Allah (saw) seeking his intercession[1] and saying [s: words like]: ‘O Prophet, intercede for me to be pardoned!’ Hadrat Gangohi himself has said the following words:

‘O Messenger of Allah! I implore you for your intercession (ap se shafa’at ka sawal karta hu) and I seek a means to Allah through you that I die a Muslim according to your religion (millat) as well as your Sunna!’”[2]
