The Hanbali Madzhab Considers Tawaswswul in Du'a Desirable

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam Muhammad al-Mardawi (r.a.), as recorded in Kitab al-Inswaf, commenting on the theological position of Imam Ahmad (r.a.) and the Hanbali madzhab, said, “The correct position of the madzhab is that it is permissible in one’s du’a to use, as one’s means, of a pious person, and it is said that it is desirable.  Imam Ahmad said to Abu Bakr al-Marwazi, ‘Let him use the Prophet (s.a.w.) as a means in his supplication to Allah (s.w.t.).’” This is also cited in Shaykh ibn Taymiyyah’s (r.a.) Majmu’ al-Fatawa.
