قبروں سے مدد چاہنا

Ashraf Thanwi comments:

ہاں! ان سے وہ چیزیں مانگو جو ان کے پاس ہوں تو اب بھی صاحب نسبت ان سے فیض حاصل کرسکتا ہے

Translation: “Yes! Ask them (inmates of the graves) for that which they actually possess, for even now the Sahib-e-Nisbat [person connected through Sufism, mysticism, etc.] can acquire blessings and benefits from them.”
