The Holy Prophet Muhammad [Peace upon him, his family & companions] is the intermediary for forgiveness also according to the Qur’aan in the 4th Sura, an-Nisaa (Women) النِّسَآء in Verse 64:
وَلَوْ أَنَّهُمْ إِذ ظَّلَمُواْ أَنفُسَهُمْ جَآؤُوكَ فَاسْتَغْفَرُواْ اللّهَ وَاسْتَغْفَرَ لَهُمُ الرَّسُولُ لَوَجَدُواْ اللّهَ تَوَّابًا رَّحِيمًا
If these people who transgress the divine laws and damage their personalities, come to thee O Prophet! And they seek the forgiveness of Allah and if the Prophet also seeks forgiveness for them most surely they will find Allah the Acceptor of Repentance and Bestower of Mercy.’
This verse of the Holy Qur’aan is for all times. The Question arises, how do I approach the Holy Prophet [Peace upon him, his family & companions] today? Some people say go to Madinah the Illuminated, and then forgiveness is only for the rich. If we say the verse was only for the companions then we are denying the Qur’aan is for all times.
