عَنْ حُمْرَانَ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامُ قَالَ لَوْ أَنَّ كُلَّ مَلَكٍ خَلَقَهُ اللهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ وَ كُلَّ نَبِيٍّ بَعَثَهُ اللهُ وَ كُلَّ صِدِّيقٍ وَ كُلَّ شَهِيدٍ شَفَعُوا فِي نَاصِبٍ لَنَا أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ أَنْ يُخْرِجَهُ اللهُ جَلَّ وَ عَزَّ مِنَ النَّارِ مَا أَخْرَجَهُ اللهُ أَبَداً وَ اللهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ يَقُولُ فِي كِتَابِهِ ماكِثِينَ فِيهِ أَبَداً

Humraan (Ibn A’yan) records that Imam Abu Ja’far (al-Baqer – peace be on him) said,

“If every angel that Allah – Mighty and Majestic be He created –, every Prophet sent by Allah, every truthful one and every witness intercede for the one who bears enmity against us Ahl al-Bait (i.e. a Naasebi) that Allah should remove him from the hell-fire, Allah will never ever remove him from the hell-fire. And Allah – Mighty and Majestic be He – says in His Book, ‘They shall abide in it forever’. (Surah Kahf (18): Verse 3).”

1)    The three categories of people mentioned in the aforementioned in the above narration viz. the angels, the Prophets, the truthful ones and the witnesses, are the highest categories of Allah’s creatures.  Even if they all – together, not partly or not one category – try to intercede for a Naasebi, Allah will not accept their intercession. 2)            Intercession is a manifestation of divine mercy while a Naasebi is as far from divine mercy as one can imagine unless he repents and seeks forgiveness during his lifetime.
