The Difference

Ibn Mas’ood (ra) narrated:

“Indeed, the believer sees his sins as if he was standing
at the foot of a mountain fearing that it will fall upon him
and the sinner sees his sins like a fly which passes by his nose
so he tries to remove it by waving
his hand around.”

[Sahih al-Bukhari (6308) and Sahih Muslim (2744)]

    Wait, out of curiosity, did Ibn Mas’ud say this this or is he the narrator before the Prophet, upon him blessings and peace?

    As salaamu alaykum,

    Jazakallah khair, I believe he is the narrator.
