Those who are faithfully true to their

Hadith - Sahih Bukhari 6:373, Narrated
said, "Paradise and the Fire (Hell) argued, and the
Fire (Hell) said, 'I have been given the privilege of receiving the arrogant
and the tyrants.' Paradise said, 'What is the matter with me? Why do only
the weak and the humble among the people enter me?' On that, Allah said to
Paradise, 'You are My Mercy which I bestow on whoever I wish of my servants.'
Then Allah said to the (Hell) Fire, 'You are my (means of) punishment by
which I punish whoever I wish of my slaves. And each of you will have its
fill.' As for the Fire (Hell), it will not be filled till Allah puts His
Foot over it whereupon it will say, 'Qati! Qati!' At that time it will be
filled, and its different parts will come closer to each other; and Allah
will not wrong any of His created beings. As regards Paradise, Allah will
create a new creation to fill it with."
