quran 31:18

Day 2 - Life in Jannah

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet  said, “Allah (swt) said, ‘I have prepared for My pious worshipers such things as no eye has ever seen, no ear has ever heard of, and nobody has ever thought of. All that is reserved, besides which, all that you have seen, is nothing.” Then he recited:– 'No soul knows what is kept hidden (in reserve) for them of joy as a reward for what they used to do.’ (32.17) (Book #60, Hadith #303)

I want you to try to deeply and vividly imagine the next few paragraphs as detailed as you possibly can. But even then, it will be nothing compared to what Allah (swt) has planned for us. So extremely beautiful and insanely peaceful (mA), as a human it is completely impossible for you to even come close to creating it correctly in your head. SubhanAllah.

It is the Day of Judgement, and everyone has been assigned to either Jahanam or Jannah, Alhamdullilah you’ve been assigned to Jannah. The doors of Jannah open and the angels are standing there to welcome you. The first words they speak to you is, “Salamun Alaikum,” (Peace is all upon you). You have finally reached the eternal state of peace. “They will not hear therein ill speech or commission of sin. But only the saying of: 'Peace! Peace!’“ (Quran 56:25-26) As you enter you will witness, “Rivers of milk the taste of which will remain unchanged. Rivers of wine that will be delicious to those who drink from it and rivers of clear, pure honey. For them will be every kind of fruit and forgiveness from their Lord.” [ 47:15] In paradise there is no sun and no moon. The weather will never be too hot and will never be too cold, always perfect. Since there is no moon, there is no night and you will never go to sleep. They asked the Prophet ﷺ : “Do people of Paradise sleep?” He answered: “Sleep is the brother of death; the people of Paradise will not sleep” [Silsilat al-Hadith as-Saheehah, 3/74, no. 1087, al-Kaamil of Ibn ‘Adiyy, al-Hilyah of Abu Na’eem, Taareekh Isbahaan] Jannah is always bright and illuminating. 

Your body is embellished with the most luxurious form of green silk - (the softest and most beautiful, nothing compared to that of man kind’s.) and bracelets of gold, silver and pearls. “They will be adorned therein with bracelets of gold and will wear green garments of fine silk and brocade, reclining therein on adorned couches” [Quran 18:31] Everything, even to the very comb you will use for your hair, will be made out of gold and silver. “Their vessels will be of gold and silver, their combs will be of gold and the coals of their incense-burners will be of aloe- wood (Abu’l-Yamaan said: of ‘Ood At-Teeb) and their sweat will be musk.” [Al-Bukhari]

And finally, you are walking towards your palace that Allah (swt) has reserved for you. The Prophet ﷺ said in a hadith, “You will know your palace in Jannah more than you knew your house in the dunya.” Bricks of gold and silver cover the exterior of your palace, rocks made of pearls and jewels, and the ground made of saffron. You will be served the best fruits and drinks, as you recline upon gold encrusted thrones facing the beautiful views. The more excellent your character, the more higher your palace will be placed. 

Allah (swt) has kept concealed from us, that which is beyond our ability to comprehend.

5 ways to enter Jannah

  1. Whoever takes a path in search of knowledge, Allah will make easy for him the path to Jannah. (Jami` at-Tirmidhi)
  2. Anyone whose soul leaves his body and he is free of three things, will enter Jannah: Arrogance, stealing from the spoils of war, and debt. (Sunan Ibn Majah)
  3. O people, spread the Salaam (greetings), feed the hungry, and pray while the people are asleep, you will enter Jannah in peace. (Sunan Ibn Majah)
  4. Whoever believes (has Imaan) in Allah and His Messenger (peace be upon him), and establishes the prayer and fasts in the month of Ramadan, it is incumbent upon Allah that He enters him in Jannah. (Sahih al-Bukhari)
  5. Whosoever last words are: La ilaha illa Allah, will enter Paradise. (Sunan Abu Dawud)

May he forgive all of our sins and grant us Jannah. inshaAllah.

If the Quran and Religion of Islam is so Evil Why does it tell us to rather remain silent if we have nothing good to say?

Why does it tell us to not commit fornication and adultery? - do you think that if everybody only had sex with their spouse that there would be SO many sexual transmitted diseases? That there would be abortions?
