The opinion of abu hanifa is, its wrong to supplicate by means of creation.

ad -Durrul -Mukhtaar (2/630) Aboo Haneefah said : It is not fitting at all that anyone should supplicate to Allaah except by Him

Az-Zubaydee says in Sharhul-Ihyaa (2/285): "Aboo Haneefah and his two companions hated that a person should say: To ask You by the right of so and so' or ' By the right of Your Prophets and Messengers' or 'By the right of the Sacred House and Sacred Area (of Muzdalifah)' and the like, since no one has any right upon Allaah.

Opinion of Ahmad bin hanbal is one can supplicate by means of Prophet's status (prophets are creation).

"Imaam Ahmad allowed tawassul by means of the Messenger alone"

Reference: page 44, tawassul at waseelah by sk.albani.

Since both scholars cannot be correct, how do we conclude which one is correct?

    Asking about which opinion is correct from a set of valid opinions is opinion based and hence off-topic. I'd personally prefer the first one since I find it closer to the impression I get from the Quran and Hadith. – UmH Jul 13 '17 at 7:05
  • The reference given only has a page number and is not quoted. Without the quote, how can we compare the two? And without the second quote which you say contradicts the others, then you should go with the first ones which seem correct. Your summary only uses the word "tawassul" which means to connect, and the Quran requires direct connection to Allah without go-betweens even if prophet, so from that I would have to reject he second hadeeth, but that could be unfair without the quote itself. – S Karami Jul 14 '17 at 2:24
