The ruling of the statement: Allaah hears (responds) to the supplication through the means of Muhammad
Question:

What is the ruling of the statement: Allaah hears (responds) to the supplication through the means of Muhammad (Sallalaahu Ďalaihi wa sallam), for he is a means of access and an intermediary
Answer:

Alhamdulillaah; if what is intended by that is that having Eemaan in Muhammad and being obedient to him and sending peace and blessings upon him are all a means for the servant in having his supplication answered and being rewarded for his supplication then he is truthful.

But if he intends that Allaah does not answer the supplication of anyone until he raises it to the creation, or that he gives him a portion of it, or that the Prophets themselves can intercede by their means in having the supplication answered whilst not having Eemaan in them and not being obedient to them then he has lied concerning that and Allaah knows best.
