The creation of Jannah and Jahannum

“When  Allah  created Jannat, He said to Jibra-eel, ‘Go and look at it (Jannat)!’ He (Jibra-eel) went and looked at it. He returned and said, ‘O my RABB By Your Splendour, there will not be a person who hears of it but will enter it.’

Allah  Ta’ala then covered it (Jannat) with hardships and said, ‘O Jibra-eel ! Go and look at it’ He went and looked at it. He returned and said, ‘O my RABB By Your Splendour, I fear that not a person will enter it (Jannat).’

And when  Allah  Ta’ala created the Fire, He said, ‘O Jibra-eel ! Go and look at it’ He went and looked at it. He returned and said, ‘O my RABB By Your Splendour, whoever hears of it will never enter it.’  

Allah  then covered it (the Fire) with desires and said, ‘O Jibra-eel ! Go and look at it’ He went and looked at it. He returned and said, ‘O my RABB By Your Splendour, and Your Greatness, I fear that not a person will remain but will enter it’”
