On the Day of Qiyamah some people will be allowed to intercede on behalf of a large group

Question

Is this Hadith authentic?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Verily, from amongst my Ummah, there will be some people [i.e. ‘Ulama, martyrs and the pious] who will intercede for a large group of people and some who will intercede for a tribe, and some who will intercede for a small group, and some who will intercede for a single man, until they all enter Jannah”

 

Answer

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Sa’id Al Khudri (radiyallahu ‘anhu). He has declared the Hadith sound (hasan).

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2440)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
