Question:
How does one make tawassul through the Prophet?
Answer:
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,

Al-Mardawi in his book al-Insaf fi Ma`rifat al-Rajih min al-Khilaf `ala Madhhab al-Imam al-Mubajjal Ahmad ibn Hanbal (3:456) and Ibn Muflih in his Furu` (1:595) related that the wording preferred by Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal, Allah be well-pleased with him, is: �O Allah! I am turning to you with your Prophet, the Prophet of mercy. O Muhammad! I am turning with you to my Lord for the fulfillment of my need.�

Note that this wording is the one taught by the Prophet, Allah bless him and greet him, to the blind man in the famous sahih hadith narrated by Imam al-Tirmidhi and others.
