    Heaven (Paradise)

    Heaven (Paradise)

    God promises to all his servants who believe with the gardens of paradise under which rivers flow. Allah says "Allâh has promised to the believers -men and women, - Gardens under which rivers flow to Dwell therein forever, and beautiful mansions In Gardens of 'Adn (Eden Paradise). but the greatest bliss is the good pleasure of Allâh. that is the Supreme success". (Sura At-Taubah, verse 72)

    God created the heaven to His servants who believe, and god created in it various favors which was never seen by the eye, never to be heard by the ear, and never to be hint by hearts of a human being. Allah says "No person knows what is kept hidden for them of joy as a reward for what they used to do". (Sura As-Sajdah, verse 17)

    Paradise is so vast, as wide as heaven and earth, Allah says "And march forth In the Way (which leads to) Forgiveness from Your Lord, and for Paradise as wide as are the heavens and the earth, prepared for Al-Muttaqûn (the pious)". (Sura Ali Imran, verse 133)


    Heaven is a timeless place and the people who have entered it will not require another. Allah says "Verily! those who believe (in the Oneness of Allâh Islâmic Monotheism) and do righteous deeds, shall have the Gardens of Al-Firdaus (the Paradise) for their entertainment. Wherein they shall Dwell (forever). no desire will they have to be removed therefrom". (Sura Al-Kahfi, verse 107-108)
    The food in heaven is eternal, and the auspices of heaven are eternal also. Allah says "The description of the Paradise which the Muttaqûn (pious): have been promised! -Underneath it rivers flow, its provision is eternal and so is its shade, This is the end (final destination) of the Muttaqûn (pious), and the end (final destination) of the disbelievers is Fire". (Sura Ar-Ra'd, verse 35)

    Greeting of the people in Paradise is a good speech, in which there are no words that are not good and there are no words wasted. Allah says "No Laghw (dirty, false, evil vain talk) will they hear therein, nor any sinful speech (like backbiting, etc.). But Only the saying of: Salâm!, Salâm! (greetings with peace)". (Sura Al-Waaqi'ah, verse 25-26)

    The Drink of the occupants of heaven is a delicious taste, with a variety of shapes and colors. Allah says "The description of Paradise which the Muttaqûn (pious) have been promised is that In it are rivers of water the taste and smell of which are not changed; rivers of milk of which the taste never changes; rivers of wine delicious to those who drink; and rivers of clarified honey (clear and pure) therein for them is Every kind of fruit; and Forgiveness from their Lord. (are these) like those who shall Dwell for ever In the Fire, and be given, to drink, boiling water, so that it cuts up their bowels?". (Sura Muhammad, verse 15)

    The Drinking places of the occupants of heaven are made of gold and silver. They were given food and drink with plates and cups made of silver and gold. Allah says "Enter Paradise, You and Your wives, In happiness. Trays of gold and cups will be passed round them, (there will be) therein All that the one's inner-selves could desire, All that the eyes could delight in, and You will abide therein forever”. (Sura Az-Zukhruf, verse 70-71)

    The Jewelry of the occupants of heaven are made of gold, silver and jewels. Allah says "'Adn (Eden) Paradise (everlasting gardens) will they enter, therein will they be adorned with bracelets of gold and pearls, and their garments there will be of silk (i.e. In Paradise)”. (Sura Faathir, verse 33)

    Tapestry of the occupants of heaven, from the outside it looks beautiful and the inside is made of silk adorned with gold. Allah says "Reclining upon the couches lined with silk brocade, and the fruits of the two Gardens will be near at hand". (Sura Ar-Rahmaan, verse 54)

    The wives of the inhabitants of heaven are the beautiful-eyed angels. Allah says "And with them will be chaste females, restraining their glances (desiring none except their husbands), with wide and beautiful eyes. (Delicate and pure) as if they were (hidden) eggs (well) preserved”. (Sura As-Shaaffat, verse 48-49)

    Servants of the occupants of heaven are the youth who remain young and handsome. Allah says "And round about them will (serve) boys of everlasting youth. if You see them, You would think them scattered pearls”. (Sura Al-Insaan, verse 19)

    The inhabitants of heaven to live in a good and stable air, neither hot nor cold. Allah says "Reclining therein on raised thrones, they will see there neither the excessive heat of the sun, nor the excessive bitter cold, (as In Paradise there is no sun and no moon)". (Sura Al-Insaan, verse 13)

    The People of Paradise will see their god in the Day of Resurrection. Allah says "Some faces that Day shall be Nâdirah (shining and radiant). looking at their Lord (Allâh)”. (Sura Al-Qiyaamah, verse 22-23)

    Every person who believes in Allah and fears Him, Allah will glorify him on the Day of Resurrection with eternity in heaven. Allah says "This it is what You (Al-Muttaqûn-the pious) are promised for the Day of Reckoning! (it will be said to them)! Verily, This is Our provision which will never finish”. (Sura Shaad, verse 53-54)

    O Allah, make us part of them, and put us and all Muslims into a paradise. Amen.
