Salvation without Prophet’s Intercession


As’salamu alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barkatuhu,

Is it possible to get salvation without the intercession of Sayedna Muhammad ( sallal lahu Alaihi Was sallam)? I have to explain it to a friend who thinks that his sins are of such a nature that any intercession by Prophet (saws) will make Prophet (saws) ashamed of him in front of Allah (swt). Thus he prays: “O Allah forgive me and do not let your beloved Prophet (saws) become ashamed of having such a follower”. Is this right?


wa `alaykum salam,

His du`a is correct and is the soul of intercession. As for your question, the answer is that without the second half of shahada one’s religion is incomplete therefore no, it is not possible for us to get salvation without the intercession of Sayyidina Muhammad (s). However, in the hadith qudsi of the succession of intercessions the very last intercession will be that of Allah Most High with Himself, on behalf of whoever is still left in hell fire among those whom He desires to bring into Paradise.
