Abu Mas'ud Al-Badri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "A person from amongst the people who lived before you was called to account by Allah on the Day of Resurrection. No good deeds were found in his credit except that he being a rich man had (financial) dealings with people and had commanded his servants to show leniency to those who were in straitened circumstances. Upon this Allah, the Exalted, and Majestic said: 'I am more entitled to this attribute, so waive (his faults)."'[Muslim].

وعن أبي مسعود البدري رضي الله عنه قال‏:‏ قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏:‏ ‏"‏حوسب رجل ممن كان قبلكم فلم يوجد له من الخير شيء إلا أنه كان يخالط الناس، وكان موسرًا وكان يأمر غلمانه أن يتجاوزوا عن المعسر قال الله عز وجل‏:‏ ‏"‏نحن أحق بذلك منه، تجاوزوا عنه‏"‏ ‏(‏‏(‏رواه مسلم‏)‏‏)‏‏.‏
