Can you cite authentic narrations that confirm that Tawassul is permissible?
The issue of Tawassul is a detailed one, and consists of different forms.
To make du’a to Allah Ta’ala and ask Him to fulfill one’s need through the wasilah (medium) of another pious being, is permissible and well established.
Unfortunately many contemporaries have the wrong impression of this issue.
See a detailed article that discusses the various forms and the proofs for tawassul here.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
