The Leader of the sons of Adam

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “I will be the leader of the sons of Adam on the Day of Resurrection, and the first one for whom the grave is opened, and the first one to intercede and the first one whose intercession will be accepted.”

[Sahih Muslim]

Commentary:

The above Hadith informs us of the status and many virtues which Allah has given the Prophet Muhammad (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) such as:

  1. He (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) is the leader of the sons of Adam on the Day of Resurrection (i.e. the leader of mankind).
  2. He (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) is the first one for whom the grave is opened.
  3. He (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) is the first to be asked intercession on the Day of Judgement.
  4. He (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) is the first whose intercession will be accepted on the Day of Judgement.

We ask Allah to send His peace and blessings upon the Prophet Muhammad (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam).

And Allah knows best!
