‘A’isha (RA) narrated that the Prophet (SAW) said,

“When Allah wants to allow the people of Paradise to enter Paradise, He sends them an angel with a gift of clothes from Paradise.
When they’re about to enter Paradise, the angel says to them, ‘Wait, I have a gift with me from the Lord of the Worlds.’
They will say, ‘What is the gift?’
The angel will say, ‘It is ten seals
– on the first one is written ‘Peace be upon you! You were good, so enter the Garden of delight, to dwell therein’;
– on the second [seal] it is written, ‘Your sadness and anxieties have been removed;’
– written on the third is, ‘And this is the garden which you are given as an inheritance on account of what you did’;
– written on the fourth is, ‘We have given you ornaments and beautiful clothes to wear’;
– written on the fifth is, ‘We shall wed them with Houris with wide, lovely eyes,’ and ‘I have rewarded them this day because they were patient, that they are the triumphant’;
– written on the sixth is, ‘This is your reward today for the acts of obedience you were engaged in’;
– on the seventh is, ‘You have been returned to your youth and you will never become aged’;
– on the eighth is, ‘You are in perpetual security and need never be frightened;’
– on the ninth is, ‘You will be in the company of the prophets, truthful ones, martyrs, and righteous ones’;
– written on the tenth is, ‘You will reside beside the All-Merciful who Possesses the Great Throne.’
The angels will then say ‘Enter it in peace and security.’

They will thus enter paradise and say, ‘Praise is due to Allah the One who removed our anxieties, surely our Lord is Most Forgiving and Grateful.’
‘Praise is due to Allah the One who was true to His Promise and gave us the inheritance of this earth… thus is the reward of those who work.’

And when Allah wishes to throw the People of hell into the Fire, he sends them an angel who has ten seals.
– On the first one is written, ‘Enter it, never will you die, be brought to life, or ever brought out of it’;
– on the second is written, ‘Linger in punishment, never will there be any repose for you’;
– on the third is written, ‘They have despaired of My mercy’;
– on the fourth is written, ‘Enter it, into perpetual distress, anxiety, and sorrow’;
– on the fifth is written, ‘Your clothes will be fire, your food will be from an extremely bitter and thorny tree that grows at the bottom of the Hellfire (zaqqum), your drink will be boiling fluids, and your bed and covering will be the Fire’;
– on the sixth is written, ‘This is your recompense today for disobeying me;’
– on the seventh is written, ‘My anger will be with you in the Fire forever;’
– on the eight is written, ‘You are cursed for the major sins you intentionally committed, for which you never repented nor had any regret’;
– on the ninth is written, ‘Your eternal friends in the Fire will be the devils’;
– and on the tenth is written, ‘You followed [the path of] Satan, desired the dunya and neglected the Hereafter, thus this is your recompense.’”
