Hadith on Intercession: Allah has mercy on people who never did good

Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Allah will certainly be praised on the Day of Resurrection by some people who never did any good. He will take them out of the Hellfire after they are burned and admit them into Paradise by His mercy, after the intercession of those who intercede.

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ لَيَتَحَمَّدَنَّ اللَّهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ عَلَى أُنَاسٍ مَا عَمِلُوا مِنْ خَيْرٍ قَطُّ فَيُخْرِجُهُمْ مِنْ النَّارِ بَعْدَمَا احْتَرَقُوا فَيُدْخِلُهُمْ الْجَنَّةَ بِرَحْمَتِهِ بَعْدَ شَفَاعَةِ مَنْ يَشْفَعُ
