Hadith on Cruelty: Hellfire filled with cruel, mean, rude, arrogant sinners

Suraqah ibn Ju’shum reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “O Suraqah, shall I tell you about the people of Paradise and Hellfire?” Suraqah said, “Of course, O Messenger of Allah.” The Prophet said, “As for the people of Hellfire, it is every hard-hearted, cruel, and arrogant person. As for the people of Paradise, they are the meek and oppressed.”

عَنْ سُرَاقَةَ بْنِ جُعْشُمٍ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ يَا سُرَاقَةُ أَلَا أُخْبِرُكَ بِأَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ وَأَهْلِ النَّارِ فَقَالَ بَلَى يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ قَالَ أَمَّا أَهْلُ النَّارِ فَكُلُّ جَعْظَرِيٍّ جَوَّاظٍ مُسْتَكْبِرٍ وَأَمَّا أَهْلُ الْجَنَّةِ فَالضُّعَفَاءُ الْمَغْلُوبُونَ
