Is there a duration for Hell Fire and Paradise?

Question: Peace be upon you and the Mercy of Allah and His Blessings
May Allah send His Peace and Blessings upon Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad, the Imams and the Mahdis.

My master, is there a duration and an end for Hell Fire and Paradise? For Allah says: {They shall dwell therein so long that the Heavens and Earth last except for what your Lord wills} [Surat Hud 11:107]

And what is the destination of the people of Hell Fire and Paradise afterwards?

The sender: Abdullah Hashem/Egypt

Answer: In the Name of Allah, The Merciful, The Intensely Merciful
All praise be to Allah Lord of the Worlds
May Allah send His Peace and Blessings upon Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad, the Imams and the Mahdis.

There are many clear and Muhkam (precise and clear) verses [mentioning] that the dwelling in Paradise is eternal, He, The Exalted said: {The ones who believe and do righteous deeds – We will admit them to gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide forever. [It is] the promise of Allah , [which is] truth, and who is more truthful than Allah in statement} [Surat Al-Nisaa’ 4:122]
As such is Hell Fire, dwelling in it is eternal. He, The Exalted, said: {Whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger for them is Hell Fire: they shall dwell therein forever”} [Surat Al-Jinn 72:23]

That is according to deserving and justice. But the matter [belongs] to Allah, The Glorious, The Almighty, in the beginning and in the end. And He, the Glorious, is Kind and the Kingdom and what is in it are His. And He does with it whatever He wills, and no one has the right to ask Him if He willed to forgive some of His servants or accepted intercession for them that He get them out of Hell Fire, which they deserved to enter it. And to Him also is raising the ranks of some of His servants in Paradise that the type of their eternal dwelling in Paradise changes as a result of that.
