Surah Baqarah, 48

“And fear that Day when no one will be able to meet a demand on behalf of anyone else, nor will anyone be able to speak on behalf of another, nor will bail be taken on anyone’s behalf and nor will any alliance be of avail.” (Surah Baqarah, 48)

That Day will be the Day of Qiyaamat [Resurrection]. All forms of mutual assistance will be of no avail on that Day when Imaan is missing. A person, for instance, will not be able to give his Salaat or Saum to another from whom this is demanded, nor will he be able to intercede on behalf of his friend or brother, nor will he possess wealth on that Day to bail out anyone and no one will be able to offer physical assistance by shielding or rescuing another from Allah Ta’ala’s chastisement. With Imaan and with the permission of Allah Ta’ala, however, intercession will take place. (Bayaanul Qur’aan)
