Praying to Allah; Seeking understanding of Islam. Yes good question. It makes me admit: What am I trying to say? In my defense, I first claim I am replying to a Bengali Girl's Question in the OP. Bengal was a region that is very much larger than simply East Pakistan...so I can relate to Bengal's Hindus due to the medieval History of Bengal. So that is where my POV came from. Any way "Intercessor" is not a concept that I introduced. If one is a professional in any field they have rose through the three checks for Intellectual know-how: 1 Mentors 2 Colleagues of Mentors 3 Texts of the Mentors It's my pedantic measuring gauge.
