The Qur’an as an Intercessor

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Read the Qur’an, for it will come as an intercessor for its reciters on the Day of Resurrection.”

[Sahih Muslim]

Commentary:

This Hadith tells the excellence of reciting the Qur’an and acting upon its injunctions.

Intercession (in this Hadith) means that the Qur’an will be endowed with the power of speech by Allah and it will request Allah to forgive the sins of its reciters who acted upon its teachings.

Allah will accept the request of the Qur’an, as signified in other Ahadith.

And Allah knows best!
