Imran b. Husain repotted that it was said to Allah's Rasul (saw):

Has there been drawn a distinction between the people of Paradise and the denizens of hell? He said: Yes. It was again asked: If it is so, then what is the use of doing good deeds? Thereupon he said: Everyone is facilitated in what has been created for him.

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Rasul (saw) as saying:

Verily, a person performs deeds for a long time like the deeds of the people of Paradise. Then his deeds are terminated like the deeds of the people of Hell and, verily, a person performs deeds like the denizens of Fire for a long time, but then this deed are ultimately followed by the deeds of the people of Paradise.

Sahl b. Sa'd reported it from Allah's Rasul (saw) that there are some people who perform deeds like the deeds of the people of Paradise but they end up amongst the dwellers of Hell and a some act apparently like the people of Hell, but (in fact) they end up among the dwellers of Paradise.

Tawus reported:

I found some Companions of Allah's Rasul (saw) saying: Everything is by measure. And he further said: I heard Abdullah b. 'Umar saying: There is a measure for everything-even for incapacity and-capability.

 Abu Huraira reported Allah's Rasul (saw) as saying. Allah fixed the very portion of adultery which a man will indulge in. There would be no escape from it. The adultery of the eye is the lustful look and the adultery of the ears is listening to voluptuous speech and the adultery of the tongue is licentious speech and the adultery of the hand is the lustful grip and the adultery of the feet is to walk to the place where he intends to commit adultery and the heart yearns and desires that which the person may or may not put into action.

Ubayy b. Ka'b reported that Allah’s Rasul (saw) said:

The young man whom Khidir killed was a non-believer by his very nature and had he survived he would have involved his parents in defiance and unbelief.

'A'isha, the mother of the believers, reported: A child died and I said,

“There is happiness for this child who is a bird from amongst the birds of Paradise.” Thereupon Allah's Rasul (saw) said: “Don't you know that Allah created the Paradise and He created the Hell and He also created their dwellers?” 

'A'isha, the mother of the believers, saidthat Allah's Rasul (saw) was called to lead the funeral prayer of a child of the Ansar. I said: Allah's Rasul, there is happiness for this child who is a bird from the birds of Paradise for it committed no sin nor has he reached the age when one can commit sin”. He said: “A'isha, it may also be otherwise, because Allah created for Paradise those who are fit for it while they were yet in their father's loins and created for Hell those who are to go to Hell. He created them for Hell while they were yet in their father's loins.”

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Rasul (saw) as saying:

There was an argument between Adam and Moses (peace be upon both of them) in the presence of their Rabb. Adam came the better of Moses. Moses said: “Are you that Adam whom Allah created with His Hand and breathed into him His sprit, and commanded angels to fall in prostration before him and He made you live in Paradise with comfort and ease. Then you caused the people to descend to earth because of your lapse?” Adam said: “Are you that Moses whom Allah selected as His Rasul and for His conversation and conferred upon you the tablets, in which everything was clearly explained and granted you the audience in order to have confidential talk with you. What is your opinion, how long ago was the Torah written before I was created?” Moses said: “Forty years before”. Adam said: “Did you not see these words: ‘Adam committed an error and he was enticed to (do so)’?” Moses said: “Yes”. Whereupon, Adam said: “Do you then blame me for an act which Allah had ordained for me forty years before He created me?” Allah's Rasul saw said: “This is how Adam came the better of Moses.”
