Question:Does ayah 46:5 contradict the concept of Tawassul?

وَمَنْ أَضَلُّ مِمَّن يَدْعُو مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ مَن لَّا يَسْتَجِيبُ لَهُ إِلَىٰ يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ وَهُمْ عَن دُعَائِهِمْ غَافِلُونَ - 46:5

Ayatollah:N/A

Answer: Not at all.
This ayah talks about those who are worshiping the things, and believe that they can do something for them as gods or as partners of Allah SWT, and this is different from tawasol, which is asking the prophet or imam to ask Allah to the thing for you.
Question:In the Book of Numbers Chapter 19, God told Moses and Aaron to tell the Israelites to sacrifice a cow. God told them it has to be a “red heifer”. In the Quran, in Surah 2 Verses 67-71, God is re-telling the story to Mohammad. When God is re-telling the story, He says that it needs to be a “yellow” cow. My question is, is the red heifer from the Book of Numbers Chapter 19 the same cow as the “yellow” cow in the Quran Surah 2 Verses 67-71? Or why are the colors different?

Ayatollah:N/A

Answer: I am not able to see Red Heifer in the verses.
It is only yellow
Question:I was listening to a lecture and he said that "Allah cannot [does not?] make 2+2=5 because this is a contradiction against reality. It is not a matter of power."
Can you please explain why this answer makes sense? Mutahhari also says that Allah is bound (binds himself?) by justice because justice is a reality.

I thought the answer was that because Allah must necessarily be all wise and all intelligent that he does not do things that are illogical because this would be against wisdom

Ayatollah:Makarem Shirazi

Answer: 1-When we say that Allah Almighty cannot do this thing, it is not a deficiency in him, but because this is not verifiable, because it is impossible, his will is not related to him in the first place, and it is like creating a partner, another creator, just like him, because he will be created, and this characteristic is not applicable to Allah Almighty.

2-When Shaykh al-Mutahari said that Allah Almighty bound himself by justice, he wants to deny his inability, without looking at the cause of wisdom, the subject of wisdom is taken for granted.

Question:If some of our sins are forgiven by Allah (swt) will those sins be questioned on the day of judgement? And do we have any hadith
on this ?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: No. Once they are forgiven with true tawba, you are not questioned about them.
According to Quran, with true and sincere tawba, the sins are converted to doles. (Sura 25, verse 70)
