1. Only recognition is enough

For the reverence (of the sacred relics associated with the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم), neither does one need assurance, nor a proof for it; rather, its recognition due to the blessed name is sufficient. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 21, pp. 415)

2. There will be justice on the Day of Judgement
