Hadith of the Week - Intercession By The Quran

I heard the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) saying, “Read the Quran, for it will come as an intercessor for its reciters on the Day of Resurrection.” [Sahih Muslim]

This hadith tells us one of the many benefits of reciting the Quran and acting upon it. The Day of Judgement will be extremely hot for sinners and 50,000 years long. The fear that will grip people will be so severe that it will produce in them a drunk like condition. People will be desperate for an intercessor, to save them from the Fire of Hell.

On that Day, none will intercede except whom Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) grants permission to, and Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) will allow the Quran to do so. The Quran will be endowed with the power of speech and it will request Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) to forgive the sins of its reciters who acted upon its teachings. Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) will accept the request of the Quran, as signified in other ahadith.

Another hadith states: “The Quran and the people who applied it, will be brought on the Day of Resurrection preceded with Surah Al-Baqarah and Surah Al-e-Imran arguing on behalf of those who applied them.” [Sahih Muslim] Let’s increase our chances of being saved from the Fire of Hell, by reciting the Quran and applying its teachings to our lives.


  1. To recite alQuran is easy ( of coure when we learn ) but to apply in everyday life is a bit difficult. We need guidance from knowledgable people for fear we might practice the wrong things.

    Thank u for visiting my blog.

  2. Life is a never-ending learning process. Thats why we learn little by little and practice it as we progress. Yang jadi masalahnya, yang taknak belajar langsung tu. Even learn to recite pun taknak. May Allah guides all of us.
