 According to Ma’bad b. Hilal al-‘Anazi : “We people of al-Basra gathered and went to Anas b.
Malik and took Thabit with us to introduce us and ask
about the tradition of intercession [al-Shafa’at]. We came to him
and he was praying al-Duha. Thabit asked permission for us to
enter and we entered. He was seated on his bedding, we said to
Thabit don’t ask anything before asking about the tradition of
intercession. He said to him: ‘0 Abu Hamzah , your brothers
from al-Basrah wanted you to tell them the tradition about
intercession.’

He said: ‘Muhammad , told us: ‘On the Day of
Resurrection, the people will rush against one another like waves,
then they will go to Adam , and say: ‘Intercede for us before
your Lord.’ He will say: ‘I am not capable of that, rather you
should go to Abraham , for he is the KhalIlullâh (close friend of
Allah), the Most High.’ So they will go to Abraham , and he
will say: ‘I am not capable of that, rather you should go to Moses
, for he is the one with whom Allah 9, the Most High, spoke.’
They will go to Moses , and he will say: ‘I am not capable of
that, rather you should go to Jesus , for he is a spirit of Allah 9
and His 9 word.’ So they will go to Jesus and he will say: ‘I am
not capable of that, rather go to Muhammad .’ “So they will
come to me, and I will say: ‘I am for that.’ I will go and ask
permission to speak to my Lord, and permission will be granted to
me. I will stand before Him, and will praise Him with words of
praise that I am not able to say now, but Allah 9, the Most High,
will inspire me therewith. Then I will fall down prostrating Him,
and it will be said to me: ‘0 Muhammad , raise your head.
Speak, you will be heard; ask, it will be given to you; intercede
and your intercession will be accepted.’ I will say: ‘0 Lord, my
Umma! my Umma!’ It will be said to me: ‘Go, and whoever has
in his heart the faith that is equal to the weight of a grain of wheat
or barley, bring him out there from.’ So I will go and do that,
then I will come back to my Lord, the Most High 9, and I will
praise Him with those words of praise, then I will fall down
prostrating Him, and it will be said to me: ‘0 Muhammad ,
raise your head. Speak, you will be heard; ask, it will be given to
you; intercede and your intercession will be accepted.’ I will say:
‘0 Lord, my Umma! my Umma!’ It will be said to me: ‘Go, and
whoever has in his heart the faith that is equal to the weight of a
grain of mustard-seed, bring him out there from.’ So I will go and
do that, then I will come back to my Lord and I will praise Him
with those words of praise, then I will fall down prostrating Him,
and it will be said to me: ‘0 Muhammad , raise your head.
Speak, you will be heard; ask, it will be given to you; intercede
and your intercession will be accepted.’ I will say: ‘0 Lord, my
Umma! my Umma!’ It will be said to me: ‘Go, and whoever has
V i r t u e s o f P r o p h e t M u h a m m a d صلى الله عليه وسلم |
in his heart the faith that is smaller, smaller, smaller than a grain of
mustard-seed, bring him out of the Fire.’ And I will go and do
that.’”
(Ma’bad b. Hilal A1-‘Anazi continued) “This is the
HadIth of Anas that he narrated to us. Then we left him and
when we were in the upper part of Al Jabban we said: ‘Why don’t
we go to al-Hasan 9 and greet him, while he was in the house of
Abu al-Khalifah?” So, we went to him and greeted him, and we
said: ‘0 Abu Sa’id, we have come from the house of your brother
Abu Hamzah, and we have never heard anything like the Hadith
he told us about intercession.’ He said: “Tell me.” So we told him
the Hadith and he said: ‘Tell me more.’ We said: ‘He did not tell
us any more than that.’ He said: ‘He narrated it to us twenty years
ago when he was in good health, and (now) he has omitted
something, but I do not know whether the Shaikh forgot, or if he
did not want to tell it to you with fear for you becoming
complacent.’ We said to him: ‘Tell us.’ He smiled and said: ‘Man
is created of haste. I only said that to you because I want to narrate
it to you. He (the Messenger of Allah ) said: ‘Then I will go
back to my Lord fourth time and I will praise Him with those
words of praise, then I will fall down prostrating Him, and it will
be said to me: ‘0 Muhammad , raise your head. Speak, you will
be heard; ask, it will be given to you; intercede and your
intercession will be accepted. ‘I will say: ‘0 Lord, give me
permission (to intercede) regarding those who said: ‘La ilaha
illallah.’ It will be said: ‘By My Might, Majesty, Greatness and
Power, I shall bring forth whoever said: ‘La ilaha illallah.’”
