Ibn Mas’ud on Hereafter: One is either relieved or relieved from

Abu Wa’il reported: Ibn Mas’ud, may Allah be pleased with him, said, “Whoever acts to show off, Allah will show him off. Whoever acts to be heard, Allah will make him heard. Whoever lengthens himself to aggrandize himself, Allah will debase him. Whoever humbles himself reverently, Allah will raise him. Whoever was extravagant in the world, he will be deprived in the Hereafter. Whoever was deprived in the world, he will be extravagant in the Hereafter. One is either relieved or relieved from.” They said, “Who is relieved?” Ibn Mas’ud said, “The believer is relieved when he dies. As for one relieved from, it is one who wrongs people and cheats them in the world. When he dies, he is relieved from.”

عَنْ أَبِي وَائِلٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ مَسْعُودٍ رضي الله عنه قَالَ مَنْ يُرَائِي يُرَائِي اللَّهُ بِهِ وَمَنْ يُسَمِّعْ يُسَمِّعِ اللَّهُ بِهِ وَمَنْ تَطَاوَلَ تعظُّمًا خَفَضَهُ اللَّهُ وَمَنْ تَوَاضَعَ تَخَشُّعًا رَفَعَهُ اللَّهُ وَمُوَسَّعٌ عَلَيْهِ فِي الدُّنْيَا مَقْتُورٌ عَلَيْهِ فِي الْآخِرَةِ وَمَقْتُورٌ عَلَيْهِ فِي الدُّنْيَا مُوَسَّعٌ عَلَيْهِ فِي الْآخِرَةِ وَمُسْتَرِيحٌ وَمُسْتَرَاحٌ مِنْهُ قَالُوا مَا الْمُسْتَرِيحُ قَالَ الْمُؤْمِنُ إِذَا مَاتَ اسْتَرَاحَ وَأَمَّا الْمُسْتَرَاحُ مِنْهُ فَهُوَ الَّذِي يَظْلِمُ النَّاسَ وَيَغُشُّهُمُ فِي الدُّنْيَا فَإِذَا مَاتَ فَهُوَ الْمُسْتَرَاحُ مِنْهُ
