Hadith on Death: Every human is constricted in the grave

Ibn Abbas reported: On the day the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, buried Sa’d ibn Mu’adh, he was sitting over his grave and he said, “If anyone were to be saved from the trial of the grave, it would have been Sa’d ibn Mu’adh. He was given a mighty squeezing, but then he was relaxed.”

عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَوْمَ دُفِنَ سَعْدُ بْنُ مُعَاذٍ وَهُوَ قَاعِدٌ عَلَى قَبْرِهِ قَالَ لَوْ نَجَا أَحَدٌ مِنْ فِتْنَةِ الْقَبْرِ لَنَجَا سَعْدُ بْنُ مُعَاذٍ وَلَقَدْ ضُمَّ ضَمَّةً ثُمَّ رُخِّيَ عَنْهُ
