Is this a Hadith of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)?
اللئيم لا يوفّق للعفو من ضيق صدره
I have not come across this as a Hadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). Imam Bayhaqi (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration as the statement of Abul Husayn Al Warraq, Muhammad ibn Sa’d (rahimahullah), a senior Scholar from Nishapur (Naysabur) who passed away before 320 A.H.
(Shu’abul Iman: 7999. Refer: Tabaqatus Sufiyyah, pg. 299)
Only a wicked person is not given the ability to forgive [others] due to narrowness/tightness of his chest.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
