If you lived a luxurious life as a Muslim, will you be really dipped in hell fire once? Or is it only for kafir? If you have sources, please share. Jazak Allahu Khairan.

If he doesn't spend his money in charity and forgets his Lord then he is in danger zone.

So if a Muslim has valuable stuff such as a cool villa, Lamborghini and Airbus, and he also do charity and other Islamic obligations, then he won't get Punished in Hereafter but will get even better and much higher rewards?

Of course being a rich Muslim and having a good settled life here does not mean they will go hell in the after life.

They just need to be a good muslim, worship Allah, give charity/zakat.

We are all tested in many way. Those tested with painful stuff in this world and continued to be patient muslims, their reward in the after life is huge.

Nothing in life happens by accident even the smallest things you think is by accident but there is a meaning behind it and always remember this and God giving wealth to you was indeed his intention all along to bless you with it whether it came thru inheritance or not. He intended to give you that wealth in this life time. It's a blessing and you should view it as such by being grateful to this blessing. Show God a sincere gratitude.

And after that try to pay Zakat and what you can of sadaqa. May Allah increase you Insha-allah and accept your charity

But it shouldn't be forgotten that arrogance and superiority complex come with wealth.

How is this wealth/income acquired? because if it's acquired by haraam means then it is haraam wealth/income e.g. from consuming riba.

or if acquired by both haraam and halal means, then sort out how much of it is haraam and how much of it is halal e.g. from a restaurant that sells alcohol and halal food.

That's really good question. I would let God grant me some wealth in halal way, rather than me to do by my own, because if a I do things on my own, I might earn it in haram ways without noticing it.

Wealth is a fitna. Rasulullah :saws: preferred poverty over being rich. He would make dua to be a miskeen.

Amr ibn Awf reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “By Allah, it is not poverty I fear for you, but rather I fear you will be given the wealth of the world just as it was given to those before you. You will compete for it just as they competed for it and it will destroy you just as it destroyed them.”

but we should ask for wealth because our iman is weak and poverty can disturb us. This is why we have been commanded to ask this dua.

''Allahumma inni a'oozubika min al kufri wa al faqr''

For 'hunger' can take weak Muslim to kufr.

Alhamdulillah we have never experienced hunger which Nabi :saws: and his Sahabah RA used to experience on daily basis. Days would pass in which Rasulullah :saws: would not even find worst dates to fill his stomach. Whom we consider as poor these days would be considered a wealthy person in those times. Problem is we do not need money to fill our stomach or cover ourselves with clothes, rather we need it to compete with others and to show off our vanity. This is nothing but fitnah.

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The family of Muhammad did not eat their fill for three successive days till he died.

Reference : Sahih al-Bukhari 5374

Have we ever experienced this for even once during our lifetime? Just for once? Have we ever compared our diet with that of Rasulullah :saws: , the kind of mattress he would sleep on? Can we swallow the food which he :saws: would eat on a daily basis? What nisbat do we have with our Prophet :saws:?

excessive wealth is certainly a fitnah . Vanity, show off, deviation, negligence of deen, indifference to relatives, despise for poor etc is the result of chunk of money.
