Q. Is it permitted to ask for the prayer of those who are living?
By: Mohamed Riswan

A. Yes, it is permitted to ask for the prayer of those who are living, but not from those who are dead.

Allah said to the Messenger [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him], (when he was alive):

“…And ask forgiveness for your sins, and also for (the sins of) believing men and believing women…” [Noble Qur’an 47:19]

A hadith related by Tirmidhi says: A blind man came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and asked: “Pray to Allah to heal me”
