إِنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ وَمَاتُواْ وَهُمْ كُفَّارٌ فَلَن يُقْبَلَ مِنْ أَحَدِهِم مِّلْءُ ٱلأَرْضِ ذَهَباً وَلَوِ ٱفْتَدَىٰ بِهِ أُوْلَـٰئِكَ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ وَمَا لَهُمْ مِّن نَّاصِرِينَ
-Âl ‘Imrân ( آل عمران )

Al Qushairi Tafsir

[3:91] Surely those who disbelieve, and die disbelieving, the whole earth full of gold shall not be accepted from any one of them if he would ransom himself thereby; for them awaits a painful chastisement, and they shall have no helpers.
The allusion in it is to the one who dies after becoming listless. Even if he had a beautiful beginning, he will not be gathered in the Hereafter with the people of this story (ahl hādhi'l-qiṣṣa). Even if a thousand of those with mystical knowledge were to intercede for him, the perfection of the ruse with him is that he will encounter something like himself among others in the Hereafter, so that his acquaintances among the people of mystical knowledge (maʿrifa) will think that it is him, but it will not occur to anyone that he should intercede for him.
