Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: There was a dispute between the Hell and Jannah. The Hell said: "The haughty and proud are my inmates." Jannah said: "The modest and the humble are my residents". Thereupon, Allah the Exalted and Glorious (addressing Jannah) said: "You are My Mercy, through you I shall show mercy to those whom I wish". (And addressing the Hell), He said: "You are (the means) of My punishment by which I shall punish such of My slaves as I wish and each one of you would have its fill".[Muslim].

وعن أبي سعيد الخدري رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال‏:‏ ‏

"‏ احتجت الجنة والنار فقالت النار‏:‏ في الجبارون والمتكبرون، وقالت الجنة‏:‏ في ضعفاء الناس ومساكينهم، فقضى الله بينهما‏:‏ إنك الجنة رحمتي أرحم بك من أشاء، وإنك النار أعذب بك من أشاء، ولكليكما علي ملؤها‏"
