Argument No. 5: Steadfastness in guidance through the holy Prophet (SAW)

Allah says in surah Āl-i-‘Imrān:
And how would you (now) disbelieve while you are (among those fortunate) that to you are rehearsed the verses of Allah, and His Messenger (himself) is in your midst? And whoever holds fast to Allah’s (lap), is indeed guided towards the right path.[9]
This Qur’ānic verse also pleads for intermediation. When we reflect on the words wa fīkum rasūluh, we come to realize that the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) is such source of intermediation who is blessed by Allah Himself to intercede for the people. It is on account of his God-given stature that he can persuade Allah to draw people out of the darkness of disbelief and bless them with the light of guidance. Wa kayfa takfurūna makes it further clear that to refrain from returning to disbelief is also made possible through the Prophet’s mediation. The verse stresses two things, which are interlinked. People receive guidance through the mediation of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and this guidance is strengthened and fortified again, through the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). That is, both the reception of guidance and its sustenance are possible through the mediation of the Prophet. Allah is All-Powerful and it is within His power to guide anyone directly if He likes. But when he Himself says that He will keep us steadfast in guidance through the means of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), it is surely a clear proof of the fact that intermediation is a legitimate act.
