And they stand in awe for fear of him". (21:28)"No intercession can avail in His presence, except for those to whom He has granted permission".These aayaat reject and refute the kind of intercession believed in by the mushrikeen, i.e. intercession via angrighteous people, ("saints"), and confirm only that intercession which takes place with the permission of Allaahis pleased with both the intercessor and the one on whose behalf he intercedes. Allaah (swt) is not pleased witmushrikeen.

He said, "I thought, O Abu Hurayrah, that no one would ask mebefore you, because I have seen that you are so eager to learn hadith. The one who will be the mosintercession on the Day of Resurrection will be the one who says Laa ilaaha illaa Allaah sincerely anheart"".

It is a man who will come ouon all fours." Allaah will say to him, "Go and enter Paradise". So he will come to it and will supposewill go back and say, "My Rabb, I found it full". Allaah (swt) will say, "Go and enter Paradise for thesomething like the world and ten times over [or you have something ten times better than the worl"Are you making fun of me - or laughing at me - and You are the Sovereign of all?" I ['Abdullaah] sof Allaah (saw) smiling so broadly that his back teeth were visible. He used to say, "That is the onestatus of the people of Paradise".
