Argument No. 13: Intermediation through remembering the prophets and the saints

To remember people whom Allah loves and who are very close to Him on account of their virtuous acts is also a form of intermediation. Surah al-Fātihah has listed a number of righteous persons who can serve as intermediaries for Allah’s blessings because these are the people whom He has rewarded with special gifts – they are, in fact, the prized ones in the divine estimation. The Qur’ān states:
The path of those on whom You bestowed blessings.[26]
At another occasion, the holy Qur’ān describes the details of the people on whom His blessings have been bestowed:
And whoso obeys Allah and Messenger (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) shall be among those (on the Day of Judgement) upon whom Allah has bestowed His (special) blessings – the prophets, the truthful, the martyrs and the righteous – and they are an excellent company.[27]
Surah al-Fātihah contains all forms of intermediation. As a matter of fact, the entire surah is an act of intermediation as it is the essence of the Qur’ān. It encourages the followers to approach Allah through the divine unity, Prophethood and other pious persons. But, here, in this verse, intermediation through the righteous people is recommended because these are the ones with whom Allah is pleased.
