Narrated by Abu Huraira
Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: There was a dispute between the Hell and the Paradise and it (the Hell) said: The haughty and the proud would find abode in me. And the Paradise said: The meek and the humble would find their abode in me. Thereupon Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, (addressing the Hell) said: You are (the means) of My punishment by which I punish those of My servants whom I wish. (And addressing the Paradise) He said: You are only My Mercy by means of which I shall show mercy to those whom I wish, but each one of you would be full.

Narrated by Abu Huraira
Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The Hell and the Paradise fell into dispute and the Hell said: I have been distinguished by the proud and the haughty. And the Paradise said: What is the matter with me that the meek and the humble amongst people and the downtrodden and the simple enter me? Thereupon Allah said to the Paradise: You are (the means) of My Mercy whereby I show mercy to those of My servants whom I wish, and He said to the Hell: You are (the means) of punishment whereby I punish those of My servants whom wish. Both of you will be full. The Hell will riot be filled up until Allah puts down His foot in it. The Hell would

say: Enough, enough, enough, and at that time it will be filled up, all its parts integrated together.

Narrated by Abu Huraira
Abu Huraira reported Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) as saying: The Paradise and the Hell disputed with each other. The rest of the hadith is the same.

Narrated by Hammam b. Munabbih
Hammam b. Munabbih reported that Abu Huraira narrated to them some ahadith of Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) and one of them is this that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: The Paradise and the Hell fell into dispute and the Hell said: I have been distinguished for accommodating (the haughty and proud in me), and the Paradise said: What is the matter that the meek and the humble and the downtrodden and simple would find an abode in me? Thereupon Allah said to Paradise: You are a (means) of My Mercy. I shall show mercy through you to one whom I will from amongst My servants. And lie said to the Hell: You are a (sign) of My chastisement and I shall chastise through you anyone whom I will from amongst My servants and both of you, would be full. And as regards the Hell it would not be full until Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, places His foot therein, and it would say: Enough, enough, enough, and it would be then full and the one part would draw very close to the other one and Allah would not treat unjustly anyone amongst His creation and He would create another creation for the Paradise (to accommodate it).

Narrated by Abu Sa'id al-Khudri
Abu Sa'id al-Khudri reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: The Paradise and the Hell disputed with each other. The rest of the hadith is the same as transmitted by Abu Huraira up to the words'. "It is essential for Me to fill up both of you.

Narrated by Anas b. Malik
Anas b. Malik reported that Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) said that the Hell would continue to say: Is there anything more, until Allah, the Exalted and High, would place His foot therein and that would say: Enough, enough, by Your Honour, and some parts of it would draw close to the other.

Narrated by Anas
This hadith has been narrated on the authority of Anas through another chain of transmitters.

Narrated by 'Abd al-Wahhab b. Ata'
'Abd al-Wahhab b. Ata' reported in connection with the words of Allah, the Exalted and the Glorious: We would say to Hell on the Day of Resurrection: Have you been completely filled up? and it would say: Is there anything -more? And he stated on the authority of Anas b. Malik that Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) said: (The sinners) would be thrown therein and it would continue to say: Is there anything more, until Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, would keep His foot therein and some of its part would draw close to the other and it would say: Enough, enough, by Thy Honour and by Thy Dignity, and there would be enough space in Paradise until Allah would create a new creation and He would make them accommodate that spare place in Paradise.

Abu Sa'id reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Death would be brought on the Day of Resurrection in the form of a white-coloured ram. Abu Kuraib made this addition: Then it would be made to stand between the Paradise and the Hell. So far as the rest of the hadith is concerned there is perfect agreement (between the two narrators) and it would be said to the inmates of Paradise: Do you recognise this? They would raise up their necks and look towards it and say: Yes, it is death. Then it would be said to the inmates of Hell-Fire. Do you recognise this? And they would raise up their necks and look and say: Yes, it is death. Then command would be given for slaughtering that and then it would be said: O inmates of Paradise, there is an everlasting life for you and no death. And then (addressing) to the inmates of the Hell-Fire, it would be said: O inmates of Hell-Fire, there is an everlasting living for you and no death. Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) then recited this verse pointing with his hand to this (material) world: "Warn them, this Day of dismay, and when their affairs would be decided and they would be un-mindful and they believe not" (xix. 39).

Abu Sa'id reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: When the inmates of Paradise would be admitted to Paradise and the inmates of Hell would be admitted to Hell, it would be said (to the inmates of Paradise): O inmates of Paradise. The rest of the hadith is the same but with this variation (that he only) said. That is the word of Allah, the Exalted. And he did not say: Then Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) recited, and he did not make a mention of his having pointed with his hand towards the (material) world.

Narrated by Abdullah

Sa'id b. Musayyib explained "al-bahira" as that animal which is not milked but for the idols and none amongst the people milks them, and "as-sa'iba" as that animal which is let loose for the deities.

'Amir al-Khuzili dragging his intestines in fire and he was the first who devoted animals to deity.
