Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of the saying of the Prophet, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family: «Everyone who is to be judged, is to be tormented»
Hadith #1

حدثنا أبي - رحمه الله - قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن أحمد بن محمد بن خالد، عن أبيه، عن ابن سنان، عن أبي الجارود، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: كل محاسب معذب. فقال له قائل: يا رسول الله فأين قول الله عز وجل: " فسوف يحاسب حسابا يسيرا "؟ قال: ذلك العرض يعني التصفح.

1. We were told by my father, may Allah grant him mercy, that he said: We were told by Sa’d bin Abdullah, from Ahmad bin Muhammed bin Khalid, from his father, from Ibn Sinan, from Abu’l-Jaroud, from Abu Ja’far, peace be upon him, that he said: The Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, said: Everyone who is to be judged, is to be tormented. Then a sayer said to him: O Messenger of Allah, then where is the saying of Allah, Exalted and Glorious is He: «then he will be judged an easy judgement» (84:8)? He said: That refers to turning away (from questioning). [1] It means pardoning.
