وَٱتَّقُواْ يَوْماً لاَّ تَجْزِي نَفْسٌ عَن نَّفْسٍ شَيْئاً وَلاَ يُقْبَلُ مِنْهَا عَدْلٌ وَلاَ تَنفَعُهَا شَفَاعَةٌ وَلاَ هُمْ يُنصَرُونَ
-Al-Baqarah ( البقرة )

Al Qushairi Tafsir

And beware of a day when no soul will be requited for another, and no compensation will be accepted from it, nor will any intercession benefit it, neither will they be helped.
As for the enemies, nothing [that is, no payment or compensation] will be accepted from them. As for the friends, [the Prophet] ﷺ said, “Protect yourself from the fire even if it be by half a date [given in charity].” The intercession of intercessors will not benefit the disbeliever, for this is a determination made for each community with their prophet. As for the believers, they will benefit in particular from the Prophet's ﷺ intercession. Everyone on that day will be saying, “My soul, my soul,” but our Prophet ﷺ will say, “My community, my community.”
