| Proclaiming YaRasulALLAH in Persnal Invocation |

It is not permissible for a person to remain silent when he sees someone distorting the Religion of Almighty Allāh SubHanuhu wa Ta'ala, if he is able to stand up to him. It is not permissible to leave the Muslims without guiding them and warning them against such people who distort the Religion of Allāh SubHanuhu wa Ta'ala - once they are able to do so. This falls under the obligatory advice to the Muslims, as it was indicated by the Holy Prophet, Sayyiduna Rasoolullah SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam. If the person leaves out ordering al-ma'roof (good) and forbidding aI-munkar (evil), when it is obligatory on him, then this person is committing a sin. The Ahle Sunnah scholars used to take many hardships to warn against someone misrepresenting the Religion of Allāh SubHanuhu wa Ta'ala. This has great reward for them. If that obligation was left out in a community, those people would lose the support of Almighty Allāh SubHanuhu wa Ta'ala.

Be cautious! If you hear someone claim that it is not permissible to utter “Ya Rasoolullah SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam”, do not lend him an ear. Respond to him. Tell such a person about the Hadith of the blind SaHābi. This will be a service to the Religion of Islām.

We are now going to provide a collection of references to prove that to proclaim “Ya RasoolAllah SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam” is the Sunnah of the Sahāba, the Taba'in, the A’imma Mujtahidin, the Awliya Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anhum Ajma'een and scholars of the Ahle Sunnah and even the leaders of the Opponents have proclaimed so.

Guidance from Qur'an Al Kareem:

To call the Holy Prophet (SallAllahu 'Alaihi wa Sallam) by way of Nida (invocation) to draw his holy attention is confirmed through the verses of the Holy Quran while mentioning the activities of the Angels and the practices and rituals of the Ummah.

The Holy Quran has addressed the Holy Prophet (SallAllahu 'Alaihi wa Sallam) on many occasions drawing his holy attention to certain specific purpose or situation where his holy attention was needed as an authority for its solution or implimentation. Such phrases of Nida were Ya Ayyuhal Muzzammil, Ya Ayyuhal Muddassir, Ya Ayyuhan Nabi, Ya Ayyuhar Rasool etc.

Other Exlated Prophets were are also called by their names, e.g. "Ya Musa ," "Ya Esa," "Ya Yahya" etc.

Witness of Ahadeeth ash-Sharif:

1. Imām Tabrāni Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho (d.360/970), in his Mu'jam records the following incident:

أن رجلا كان يختلف إلى عثمان بن عفان رضي الله عنه في حاجة له ، فكان عثمان لا يلتفت إليه ، ولا ينظر في حاجته ، فلقي عثمان بن حنيف ، فشكا ذلك إليه ، فقال له عثمان بن حنيف : ائت الميضأة فتوضأ ، ثم ائت المسجد فصل فيه ركعتين ، ثم قل : اللهم ، إني أسألك وأتوجه إليك بنبينا محمد صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم نبي الرحمة يا محمد إني أتوجه بك إلى ربك عز وجل فيقضي لي حاجتي ، وتذكر حاجتك ، ورح إلي حتى أروح معك ، فانطلق الرجل ، فصنع ما قال له عثمان ، ثم أتى باب عثمان ، فجاء البواب حتى أخذ بيده ، فأدخله على عثمان بن عفان ، فأجلسه معه على الطنفسة ، وقال : حاجتك ؟ فذكر حاجته ، فقضاها له ، ثم قال له : ما ذكرت حاجتك حتى كانت هذه الساعة ، وقال : ما كانت لك من حاجة ، فأتنا ، ثم إن الرجل خرج من عنده ، فلقي عثمان بن حنيف ، فقال : له جزاك الله خيرا ، ما كان ينظر في حاجتي ، ولا يلتفت إلي حتى كلمته في ، فقال عثمان بن حنيف : والله ، ما كلمته ولكن شهدت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم وأتاه ضرير ، فشكا عليه ذهاب بصره ، فقال : له النبي صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم : أفتصبر ؟ ، فقال : يا رسول الله ، إنه ليس لي قائد ، وقد شق علي ، فقال له النبي صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم : ائت الميضأة، فتوضأ ، ثم صل ركعتين ، ثم ادع بهذه الدعوات قال عثمان بن حنيف : فوالله ، ما تفرقنا وطال بنا الحديث حتى دخل علينا الرجل كأنه لم يكن به ضرر قط
Sayyiduna 'Uthman bin Hanif Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho narrates: A person in dire need visited Amir al-Mo'minin Sayyiduna 'Uthman al-Ghani Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho. The Khalifa was busy with some other work and he did not pay any attention to his need. Thereafter, this person went to Sayyiduna 'Uthman bin Hanif Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho and complained about the matter. Sayyiduna 'Uthman bin Hanif Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho ordered the man to perform Wudu (ablution) and go to the Musjid and offer two Rak'ats of Nafil Salāh. He then ordered the man to recite the following Du'a and mention his need to Allāh SubHanuhu wa Ta'ala:

“O Allāh SubHanuhu wa Ta'ala, I beg of You and I seek Your assistance, through the Wasila (Medium) of Your beloved Prophet SallAllahu 'Alaihi wa Sallam who is the Prophet of Mercy. 'O Muhammad!' I turn to Allāh SubHanuhu wa Ta'ala with your Wasila so that my needs be fulfilled.”

After doing this, Sayyiduna ''Uthman bin Hanif Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho ordered the man to now visit Sayyiduna 'Uthman al-Ghani Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho and relay his problem. When he came to the door of Amir al-Mo'minin, the doorkeeper held his hand and took him straight to the great Khalifa. He was shown great respect and the Khalifa made him sit besides him on his personal platform. The Khalifa compassionately spoke to him and fulfilled all his needs. He then said to the man, “Why did you not inform me earlier of your needs? In future if you require anything, come directly to me.” After they had left the court of the Khalifa, the man thanked Sayyiduna 'Uthman bin Hanif Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho for recommending him to the Khalifa. However, Sayyiduna 'Uthman bin Hanif Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho said that he had not even approached or spoken to the Khalifa ...
