Calling and supplicating to the Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) during each and every need


Question :
Calling and supplicating to the Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) during each and every need and seeking his aid during affliations and suffering near his noble grave or far away from it is this a form of vile Shirk or not?

Answer :
Supplicating to the Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) calling upon him and seeking his aid after his death to help with one's needs and remove discomfort is major Shirk which removes one from the religion of Islam. This is so whether that was done at his grave or far away from it. This is like saying, " O Messenger of Allah cure me," or " return what I have lost," etc.
