. According to Abu Sa’id al-Khudri :
“Allah’s Messenger said: ‘I am the leader of the
children of Adam on the Day of Resurrection and I do not (say
with) proud, and in my hand will be the banner of praise and I do
not (say with) proud, and there has been no Prophet since Adam
or other than him, except that he is under my banner. And I
am the first for whom the earth will split open, and I do not (say
with) proud.’ He said: ‘The people will be frightened by three
frights. So they will come to Adam ……..and mentioned the
hadith in detail and said: ‘So they will come to me, and I will go
with them.’ (One of the narrators) Ibn Ju’dan said: ‘Anas said:
‘It is as if as I am looking at the Messenger of Allah , and he is
saying: ‘So I will take hold of a ring of a gate of Paradise to rattle
it,’ and it will be said: ‘Who is there?’ It will be said: ‘Muhammad
.’ They will open it for me, and welcome me saying,
‘Welcome.’ I will fall in prostration and Allah will inspire me with
statements of gratitude and praise and it will be said to me: ‘Raise
your head, ask and you will be given, intercede, and your
intercession will be accepted, speak, and you will be heard.’ And
that is al-Maqam al-Mahmud about which Allah 9 said: {‘Your
Lord will certainly raise you to a station of praise and glory (i.e.,
the glorious station of intercession where all the former and later
generations will turn towards you and glorify you).[al-Asra:
79]}’”
Reported by al-Tirmidhi. He said; this is an authentic fine
tradition.
Ibn Ma’ja reported:
Allah’s Messenger said: ‘I am the leader of the
children of Adam and I do not (say with) proud, And I am the
first for whom the earth will split open on the Day of
Resurrection, and I do not (say with) proud, the first one to
intercede and the first one whose intercession will be accepted
and I do not (say with) proud, and the banner of praise will be in
my hand on the Day of Resurrection and I do not (say with)
proud.’”

 According to Umar :
“Allah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلمsaid: ‘I am the first for whom the
earth will split open, then for Abu Bakr then for Umar ,
then it will come for those who were buried in al-Baqui then the
earth will split, I will be raised among them.’”
Reported by al-Hakim and Ahmad.
