Aboo Sa’eed al-Khudree, quoted as the saying of the Prophet: “Whoever goes out from his house for the prayer and says: ‘0 Allaah, I ask You by the right of those who ask of You, and I ask You by the right of this walking of mine, since I do not go out for wickedness or pride…,’ then Allaah turns His Face to him. Reported By Ahmad (3/21) and the wording is his, and Ibn Maajah.
This hadeeth it is narrated through Atiyyah al-Awfee from Aboo Sa’eed al-Khudree. Atiyyah is weak as declared by an -Nawawee in al-Adhkaar, and adh-Dhahabee in al-Meezaan; indeed in ad-Du’afaa (88/1) he says: “They are agreed upon his weakness.” This hadeeth is daeef as it is chain of narration is weak because it contains Atiyyah al-Awfee who is weak. So it can not be used as evidence to illustrate that tawassul through the prophet Mohammed is halaal as this hadeeth is not reliable evidence as it is daeef.
