Now coming to main point and misquotation of hadith by Wahabis [pseudo salafis] 
The arabic of the hadith of Abbas bin Abdul Mutlib(Radhi'Allah Anho) is this:
كان إذا قحطوا استسقى ‏ ‏بالعباس بن عبد المطلب ‏ ‏فقال اللهم ‏ ‏إنا كنانتوسلإليك بنبينا]فتسقينا وإنانتوسلإليك بعم نبينا فاسقنا قال فيسقون

,
And correct translation is this:O Allah! We would use our Prophet(Peace Be Upon Him)as a means(Waseela) to Youand You then sent us rain; now we use our Prophet's uncleas a means(Waseela)to You.
,
mashallah, this Haditheven further proves that Waseela from alive people(awliyas)is also allowed. For Example,If a person says that I love coffee then it does not mean that he is saying that I hate tea.Similarly, Hazrat Umar's asking through Hazrat Abbasdoes not prove that Waseela of Prophet Mohammad(Peace Be Upon Him) is prohibited.nor does it says that any where
,
but let me answer you fromclassical imamsnow , andhow Hadrat Abbas (ra) asked Allah




How did abbas (Ra) prayed himself , lets see
,

He (Ra) prayed in these words to Allah
,,
اللهم إنه لم ينزل بلاء إلا بذنب , ولم يكشف إلا بتوبة , وقد توجه القوم بي إليك لمكاني من نبيك
.

O Allah,calamity (and trouble) comes as a result of sin and only penitence lifts this calamity, and the people,because of my relation with Your Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), have offered me to Youas a means of seeking Your help, and these hands of ours, besmeared in sins, are before You and our foreheads are bowed down with penitence. So give us rain
,
►Ibn Hajar ‘Asqalānī narrated it in Fath-ul-bārī (2:497)
,
► Subkī, Shifā’-us-siqām fī ziyārat khayr-il-anām (p.128)
,
►Qastallānī, al-Mawāhib-ul-laduniyyah (4:277)
,
►Zurqānī in his Commentary (11:152)
,
Allah o Akbar, Even Abbas (Rah) prayed sayingon account of my relation with Your Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), have offered me to You, This proves Tawassul through Ahle bait and Awliyas (Rah) are alive ,


Why Al Abbas (Ra) was asked to do Dua, By Imam Ibn Hajar Asqalani (Rah)
إن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم كان يرى للعباس ما يرى الولد للوالد , فاقتدوا أيها الناس برسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم في عمه العباس واتخذوه وسيلة إلى الله
,
Rasul Ullah(salallaho alaihi wasalam) used to take Al-Abbas(RA)like a son takes his father. O People You should also follow the Prophet (saw)incase of Al-Abbas(RA) and make him an Intercessor to Allah.
,
[Fath al Bari 2:497]
,
So this was order of Prophet (Salehalawaalihi wasalam) to do it , no where it saysgoing to Prophet's (Salehalawaalihi wasalam) grave is haram or shirkso they can't ask him
,
Reply you fromimam Hajar (rah) again
,

Ibn Hajar `Asqalaniwrites more about this Tawasul of Ibn e Abbas (ra)


"The episode involving `Abbâs makes it clear that to seek intercession from the virtuous, the pious and members of the Prophet's family is a desirable act.In addition, this event proves the high status of `Abbâs as well as reveals `Umar's respect for him and the acknowledgement of his status."
►Ibn Hajar `Asqalânî, Fath-ul-bârî, 2:497;

►Zurqânî, Sharh-ul-Mawâhib, 11:152
,
Allah o akbar, Where didany imam (rah) said its shirkso Sahabi (ra) didn't do it, They all missed such a big issue

hadithrefuting wahabi claim

,

"In the year 17 `Umar enlarged the Prophetic mosque. That year there was a drought in the Hijaz. It was named the Year of Cinders (`am al-ramada). `Umar prayed for rain for the people by means of al-`Abbas. Ibn Sa`d narrated from [the Sahabi] Niyar al-Aslami that when`Umar came came out to pray for rain, he came out wearing the cloaks (burd) of the Messenger of Allah, upon him blessings and peace.
,
Al-Suyuti mentions the context of this event in his Tarikh al-Khulafa' (Beirut, 1992 Ahmad Fares ed. p. 140):]
,
^^^^
Intercession through this cloak , Even Hadrat Umar (Ra) was wearing Prophet's (salehalawaalihi wasalam) cloak at the time, , Now what is importance of the cloak , lets see ,



^^^^
Intercession through this cloak
,

...Here is the cloak of Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him). and she brought out to me that cloak made of Persian cloth with a hem of brocade, and its sleeves bordered with brocade and said: This wall Allah's Messenger's cloak with 'A'isha until she died, and when she died. I got possession of it.The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) used to wear that, and we washed it for the sick and sought cure thereby.

Sahih Muslim Book 024, Number 5149:



So this hadith proves that Awliyas [rah] who are alive can be used for Wasila, and even Hadrat Abbas [ra] asked Allah through wasila . No where hadith says Sahabas [ra] asked because Prophet [salehalawaalihi wasalam ] died.
