Quran 19 Verse 87 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Maryam ayat 87, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(19:87) On that Day none will have the power to intercede for them except those who received a sanction from the Most Compassionate Lord.[52]


52. This implies two things: (1) Intercession will be allowed only for the one who might have received permission for it from the Merciful, that is, the one who believed in Allah in the world and made himself deserving of His pardon. (2) Only that one will be able to plead intercession who might have received permission for this from the Merciful, and not those ones whom people themselves had made their intercessors without any reason.
