He knows what is [presently] before them and what will be after them, and they cannot intercede except on behalf of one whom He approves. And they, from fear of Him, are apprehensive.
And intercession does not benefit with Him except for one whom He permits. [And those wait] until, when terror is removed from their hearts, they will say [to one another], "What has your Lord said?" They will say, "The truth." And He is the Most High, the Grand.
Narrated Anas ibn Malik:
The Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: My intercession will be for those of my people who have committed major sins.
[Sunan Abi Dawud Hadith No. 4739]
