Wa'salaam Sister Ruhi.

No, no.  That is fine.  Humans praying to Allah Almighty for other humans is definitely a different matter and permissible.  It cannot be assessed in the same perspective.  Surely we all make dua to The Almighty for our family, friends, neighbors and implore Allah to grant them strong iman, good health, happiness and His protection.  This is an act of kindness, responsibility and concern for the close community we are living in.  We make dua for our fellow human beings just the way we make dua for ourselves.   Also, in tough times, we request our family and friends to make dua to Allah for us.  This is simply an extra step for calling out to Allah in addition to our own dua to Him directly.   It certainly doesn't imply that we must only depend on others to make dua for us and not reach out to Allah ourselves.   

Let me further confirm my opinion by supporting it with Quranic information. 

Quoting Verse 9:103, Surah At-Tawbah.

"Take alms of their wealth, wherewith you may purify them and may make them grow, and pray for them.   Lo!  your prayer is an assuagement for them. Allah is Hearer, Knower."  (9:103).

If you look up Verse 9:103 of Surah At-Tawbah and then also read its preceding Verse, you will grasp that Allah Almighty is speaking to the Prophet (pbuh) about a segment of people apparently in Medinah or its outskirts.  These people committed some ill deed and then acknowledged it.  We may perhaps assume that they repented.   Concerning them, Allah Almighty tells the Prophet (pbuh) in V.9:103 to take (or probably accept) charity from them to purify them, and to pray for them (that is, make dua for them).   Allah refers to the Prophet's dua for them as " سَكَنٌ " (sakanun)  which Pickthall has translated as 'assuagement' and some others have translated as 'reassurance.'   "Assuage" means to relieve or to make less severe.  I think the word 'assuagement' fits better because from what I know, the original 'sakanun' is linked with the Arabic term sakoon ( سكون)  which means calm or tranquility.   Thus, Allah Almighty gives permission to the Prophet (pbuh) to pray or make dua for a people in order to grant them some relief from sin.

Hence, if we humans make dua to Allah for other humans, that's okay.  It certainly doesn't bring about the same concept as a human being asking an angel to request Allah for forgiveness.  This is a different matter and completely wrong.    Also, if angels request Allah Almighty for the forgiveness of humans, Allah has confirmed that as acceptable in Verse 42:5.   But it should not go the other way round, that is, humans asking angels to approach Allah Almighty to ask forgiveness for them.  This, as we all know, would be plainly wrong.

Hope I've made myself clear, InshAllah.
