Day Questions

After having been granted one's wish by Allah Almighty, how long should one continue to offer the thanksgiving prayer?

The said prayer is not obligatory, and it can be repeated as many times as one desires. An individual is expected to feel the Godly bounties that surround him day and night. Such feeling is not limited to the time after granting the wishes. It was reported that it is recommended for an individual to say everyday seven times "Alhamdulillah ala kulli ne'matin kanat aw hiya kaainah" (Praise Allah for every bounty that has been granted and for those which will be granted)".

Is it permissible to ascribe associates to the personality of God, His attributes, the requirements of His attributes (what the attributes demand from us) with the intention of supplicating to the 14 Infallibles (Peace be upon them)?

Seeking intercession of the Prophet and the Imams (peace be upon them) is not a kind of polytheism. It is one of the best forms of worship, since it includes presenting the request to Almighty Allah and submitting to His lordship, as all things are under His control "His verily is all creation and commandment" (7:54). In this seeking of intercession, there is the submitting of the high positions of His friends that He has chosen and this is one of the signs of faith.There are many proofs establishing the permissibility of such worship. One of them is the verse of Almighty Allah: "when they had wronged themselves, they had but come unto thee and asked forgiveness of Allah, and asked forgiveness of the messenger, they would have found Allah Forgiving, Merciful" (4:64).
