Ibn 'Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) reported:

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "If a Muslim dies and forty people, who do not associate anything with Allah in worship, participate in the funeral prayer over him, Allah will accept their intercession for him."[Muslim].

وعن ابن عباسٍ رضي الله عنهما ، قَالَ : سَمِعْتُ رسول الله يقول : « مَا مِنْ رَجُلٍ مُسْلِمٍ يَمُوتُ ، فَيقومُ عَلَى جَنَازَتِهِ أرْبَعُونَ رَجُلاً لا يُشْرِكُونَ بِاللهِ شَيْئاً ، إِلا شَفَّعَهُمُ اللهُ فِيهِ ». رواه مسلم.
