(Fatwa: 1304/1173=B)


(1) The name is correct

(2) What is contact eyelence? We could not understand it. Clarify what type of optic it is.

(3) To regard an associate in Allah and His attributes i.e. believing in someone other than Allah as God, Nourisher, Giver of life and death etc is shirk (polytheism). While, supplicating Allah by the mediation of any virtuous act, any prophet, sahabi, the Throne of Allah, Key of His Treasures or His Eight Names (as mentioned in Hadith) is waseelah. Shirk and waseelah are far different from each other. Waseelah has been enjoined in the Quran as well: وابتغوا الیہ الوسیلۃ, it is surprising enough how you have been told that waseelah is haram whereas it has been mentioned in the ­duas of many sahih hadiths as well.  

(4) There are many enemies behind you.

Allah knows Best!
