quarrel between paradise and hell

by Seeker

Al-Bukhārī reported on the authority of the great companion Abū Hurayrah rađiyAllāhu ánhu that the Mercy for both worlds śallAllāhu álayhi wa sallam said,

Paradise and hellfire quarrelled in the presence of their Lord. Paradise said: “O Lord! What is wrong with me that only the poor and humble people enter me?” Hellfire said: “I have been favoured with the tyrannical and arrogant people.” So Allah Almighty said to paradise: “You are My mercy which I grant to whom I wish,” and said to hell: “You are My punishment which I will inflict upon whom I wish, and I shall fill both of you.
