Seeking Blessings from the Bodily Remnants of the Righteous

What is the ruling of Tabarruk (Seeking Blessings) from the Aathaar (bodily traces) of the Righteous?

The Seeking of Blessings (Tabarruk) from the Aathaar (bodily traces) of the Righteous is not something that is legislated in Islaam except for the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) and his Aathaar (bodily traces), due to the absence of firm evidence for its allowance for other than him (صلى الله عليه وسلم).
