1. Yes. Performing Salathuth Thasbeeh , according to Shari’a is correct and is established through manifest Ahadees in accepted authentic Books of Ahadees such as Abu Dawud (vol 1,page 183), Thirmizi (vol 1, page 63) and Ibnu Maja (page 99) etc., and also is reported by many of the respected Sahabas like Hadhrath Abdullah bin Umar, Hadhrath Ja’fer bin Abi Thalib, Hadhrath Ali bin Abi Thalib Radhiyallahu Anhum and so on. Although Allama Ibnu Jowzi Rahimahullah has stated that Ahadees pertaining to Salathuth Thasbeeh are fabricated, yet, it is his singularity or insistence because the Muhaddiseen (Scholars in Hadees) have rejected him very strongly. Thus, Hadhrath Moulana Khaleel Ahmed Saharanpoori Rahmathullahi Alaihi in his book Bazlul Majhood has quoted sayings of many Muahddiseen like Hafiz Ibnu Hajar and so on in details in rejecting Ibnu Jowzi. (Bazlul Majhood Vol 2, Page 277). Therefore saying that “praying Salathuth Thasbeeh is not correct” is wrong and based on ignorance of Ahadees.
2. Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab, although was a unifier (Muwahhid) and a person with strong enmity towards Innovations (Bid’ath), yet he has rejected some unanimous matters established through Qur’an and Hadees and the righteous predecessors. Therefore according to Ulama e Deoband some of his concepts are against the unanimous concept of Ahl e Sunnath Wal Jama’ath and incorrect in the light of Qur’an and Sunnath. From the Ulemas of Saudi, those who do not reject any of the unanimous concept of Ahl e Sunnath Wal Jama’ath even though they follow any of the four schools of thoughts of Jurisprudence of four Imams, are undoubtedly followers of Shari’a and correct Ulemas.
3. There is no doubt that Allah Tha’ala listens and accepts supplication (Dua) of each individual. But the fact is that Duas of some people or some avenues are quick in acceptance, and, Vaseela (Intercession) too, is done for the same purpose. Therefore it is permissible without any doubt to intercede through Saints of Allah, righteous people, Nabi Kareem Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam and good deeds while making Dua and this (method) is also established through the practices of Sahab e Kiram, Thabi’een and also of Rasoolullahi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam himself. Therefore it is permissible to make Dua viz., Ya Allah accept my Dua through the intercession of Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam. As for such practices of Sahaba e Kiram Radhiyallahu Anhum after the demise of Nabi Sallallalhu Alaihi wa Sallam, it is proved by the method of Hadhrath Usman bin Haneef Radhiyallahu Anhu in which he ordered a person to make Dua through the intercession of Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam thus; Oh Allah! I make Dua from You and I turn towards You through the intercession of Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam who is the Merciful prophet. This Hadees is quoted by Thabrani in Mu’jam Kabeer and declared authentic. (Mu’jam page 104). Further Allama Munziri too has ascertained Imam Thabrani.(AthThargheeb Wath Tharheeb Vol.1, page 43). Similarly, there is a Hadees in Bukhari Shareef that Hadhrath Umar Radhiyallahu Anhu was of the practice of interceding Hadhrath Abbas Radhiyallhu Anhu while asking Dua for rain during famine, saying ‘WE USED TO INTERCEDE THROUGH YOUR PROPHET AND YOU SENT US RAIN AND WE INTERCEDE THROUGH THE UNCLE OF YOUR NABI AND SEND US RAIN, ...THUS IT RAINED. (Bukhari Shareef Vol 1, Page 137). Please refer the books Ikhthilaf e Ummath, Takmila Fath’hul Mulhim and Roohul Ma’aani for further details.
4. Most of the Muslims in Saudi Arabia are the followers of Hadhrath Imam Ahmed bin Hambali Rahimahullah and they do not have any connection what so ever with the so called Ahl e Hadees i.e Ghair Muqallideen group. In contrast, in order to deceive the public they attribute their relationship with them.
Allah knows best.
