Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)

To say the words “Ya Rasul Allah” (O Messenger of Allah) or to call for the blessed Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) in some other way should be avoided.

If by Saying these words, one has the belief that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) is omnipresent in front of him in a way that Allah is, then this will be unlawful (Haram) and considered to be Shirk.

And Only Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
