The eminent Muslim scholar and renowned Da`iyah, Sheikh `Abdel Khaliq Hasan Ash-Shareef, states: “Martyrs interceding for their family members is true and authentically proven by the hadith of the Prophet. As for the martyr’s intercession, it takes place on the Day of Judgement as there is no intercession in the grave. The martyr’s intercession takes place after Almighty Allah permits him to intercede on behalf of 70 members of his family.”
