Imam Ibn Humam Al-Hanafi (d.861) writes :


And the biggest of the religious matters and the most important of them is the asking for a good end and (asking) for Allah’s (swt) pleasure and forgiveness, and then asking the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) for intercession by saying: “O Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم)! I am asking you for intercession. O Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم)! I am using you as my means to Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) to die as a Muslim on your religion and your Sunnah.” And to mention everything what is near to requesting and leniency to him, and to avoid words that show the lowering of oneself and what is close to lecturing, because those are bad manners. And it is narrated from ibn Abi Fadeek that he said: I heard from those I have seen say: “We heard that he who stands at the grave of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) reciting this verse: {Indeed, Allah confers blessing upon the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم), and His angels (a.s). O you who have believed, ask Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) to confer blessing and peace upon him.} (33:56), and then says: “May Allah’s blessings be upon you O Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم)!! That he (صلى الله عليه وسلم) will call him.”
