Tawaswswul & the Hadits of Intercession

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam al-Bukhari (r.a.) related, in the Hadits of Intercession, that people, while they are in the horrors in the Day of Resurrection, ask help of Adam (a.s.), then of Noah (a.s.), then of Abraham (a.s.), then of Moses (a.s.), then of Jesus (a.s.), and all of them will give an excuse, and Jesus (a.s.) will say, “Go to Muhammad.”

Then, they will go to Muhammad (s.a.w.) and he will say, “I will do it.”  If seeking aid of a creature was forbidden, then the Prophet (s.a.w.) would have not mentioned to the companions.  The ones who object to this give the answer that this is the Day of Resurrection when the Prophet (s.a.w.) has power.  One responds with the refutation that in their worldly life, they have no power except as a secondary cause, likewise after death, the living in their graves and beyond are allowed to be secondary causes only.
