The images above are from the book “al-tazkhira” of Imam Abu al-Wafa’ Ibn ‘Aqeel al-Hanbali (d. 513H), from the chapter of Hajj. As you can read the highlighted part, the Imam is recommending to seek tawassul and intercession with the Prophet صَلَّى اللَّه عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ when one visits his blessed tomb.

The amusing part though are the footnotes (also highlighted). The Wahhabi editor couldn’t stop himself from inserting his own deviant beliefs that it is forbidden to travel to visit the grave of the Prophets and the Saliheen, and suggesting that the tawassul which the Imam recommends is major shirk.
