Wasila and Intercession

[5:35] O you who believe! Be careful of (your duty to) Allah and seek means of nearness to Him and strive hard in His way that you may be successful.

[6:94] And certainly you have come to Us alone as We created you at first, and you have left behind your backs the things which We gave you, and We do not see with you your intercessors about whom you asserted that they were (Allah's) associates in respect to you; certainly the ties between you are now cut off and what you asserted is gone from you.

[10:3] Surely your Lord is Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth in six periods, and He is firm in power, regulating the affair, there is no intercessor except after His permission; this is Allah, your Lord, therefore serve Him; will you not then mind?

[10:18] And they serve beside Allah what can neither harm them nor profit them, and they say: These are our intercessors with Allah. Say: Do you (presume to) inform Allah of what He knows not in the heavens and the earth? Glory be to Him, and supremely exalted is He above what they set up (with Him).

[17:57] Those whom they call upon, themselves seek the means of access to their Lord, whoever of them is nearest, and they hope for His mercy and fear His chastisement; surely the chastisement of your Lord is a thing to be cautious of.

[20:109] On that day (Qayamah) shall no intercession avail except of him whom the Beneficent Allah allows and whose word He is pleased with.

[21:28] He knows what is before them (messengers) and what is be- hind them, and they (messengers) do not intercede except for him whom He (Allah) approves and for fear of Him they tremble.

[34:23] And intercession will not avail aught with Him save of him whom He permits. Until when fear shall be removed from their hearts, They shall say: What is it that your Lord said? They shall say: The truth. And He is the Most High, the Great.

[39:3] Now, surely, sincere obedience is due to Allah (alone) and (as for) those who take guardians besides Him, (saying), We do not serve them save that they may make us nearer to Allah, surely Allah will judge between them in that in which they differ; surely Allah does not guide him aright who is a liar, ungrateful.

[39:43] Or have they taken intercessors besides Allah? Say: what! Even though they did not ever have control over anything, nor do they understand.

[39:44] Say: Allah's is the intercession altogether; His is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth, then to Him you shall be brought back.

[43:86] And those whom they call upon besides Him have no authority for intercession, but he who bears witness of the truth and they know (him).

[53:26] And how many an angel is there in the heavens whose intercession does not avail at all except after Allah has given permission to whom He pleases and chooses.
