Intercession, Awliya and sending blessings upon the Messenger


Shaykh Ibrahim Osi-Efa answers questions on sending blessing upon the messenger (saw) and its benefits, he also enlightens us on the position of intercession in Islam.

Q: Why do we send blessings upon the Prophet (saw) does it benefit him given his rank with Allah, and do we get rewarded for it? I thought Islam cut out the “Middle man” and that we ask directly from Allah, so why this concept in some circles about some being able to Intercede on our behalf?? Is this erroneous understanding or erroneous belief?

Q: Are there others besides the messenger who can intercede on our behalf. Why do we need others to intercede for us?

Q: What differentiates people in their rank with Allah.

Q; What is the shortest version of sending blessing upon the messenger, is there a “best” version? Is there evidence that this was a practice amongst the companions?
