And pray in the small watches of the morning: (it would be) an additional prayer (or spiritual profit) for thee: soon will thy Lord raise thee to a Station of Praise and Glory!

The Praised Station

The Holy Prophet (S) has been promised (he Praised Station) in this verse and this station is, out of all prophets,
particular to the Holy Prophet (S). As to its explanation, there are
different sayings. But, the most sound of them is what appears in
authentic Ahadlth in the words of the Holy Prophet (S) himself. This
Station is the station of the Grand Intercession. This will come to pass on the plains of Resurrection (al-Hashr) when all
children of ‘Adam will be there requesting every prophet and messenger
of Allah to intercede with Him on their behalf. All prophets (pbut) will
offer their excuse. Only the Holy Prophet (S) shall be blessed with the
honorable station of interceding on behalf of the entire progeny of ‘Adam.
Hadith reports carry lengthy relevant details that appear in Tafsir Ibn
Kathir and Mazhari at this point.
