I have a question about Huqooq al ‘Ibaad (rights of men) and I heard they couldn’t be taken lightly even if a person goes out in the battlefield and it’s martyr for the sake of Allah Ta’ala. They’ll still be responsible for the violation of right of men. Is this true?

Nabi (S.A.W.) has mentioned that: “Martyrdom atones for every act except debt” (In the Hereafter.) Debt is part of Huqooqul Ibaad. (Mishkaat, Page 335)
Nabi (S.A.W.) has said: “On the day of Qiyaamah all Huqooq (rights) will be settled to such an extent that even the harm caused to a hornless sheep by a horned one will be atoned for.” (Muslim)
Rasoolullah (S.A.W.) has said that: “Save yourself from the supplication of an oppressed person, for indeed he asks off Allah and Allah does not deprive the deserving one of his rights.” (Mishkaat, Page 435)
Nabi (S.A.W.) has mentioned that: “The (evil) deeds which are recorded are of three types: The nature of the first is such that Allah will never forgive the person who commits it. This sin is the ascribing of partners unto Allah. Allah mentions: “Indeed Allah does not forgive this, that a partner be associated with Him.”
The second type is such that Allah will never leave it unattended and that is the oppression which man caused to one another, until they recompensate each other.
The third type is such that Allah will not insist on it. That is regarding the wrongdoings perpetrated against Allah, if Allah wishes he can forgive such a person or punish him.”
And Allah Ta’ala knows best
