    Just sit back and imagine …


    Do you want to live in your own palaces and mansions of which its bricks are made out of gold and silver and pebbles of pearls and sapphire?

    Do you want to drink from rivers of Milk, rivers of Honey, rivers of Wine and rivers of Water?

    Do you want to eat from gardens, with trees that have everlasting fruits, and all that’s required for you to do is simply stretch out your hand and eat to your hearts desire?

    A place in which you will be wearing crowns of rubies, of which 1 ruby alone is better than this world and all that is in it! Allahu Akbar.

    A place in which there is no sadness, no grief, no sorrow – only total happiness, joy, bliss and tranquillity. Whatever you wish for Allah will grant you, whatever you want Allah will give you.

    A place in which, being there for 1 second will erase all the hardships you went though in this life, all the struggling you went through obeying Allah when so much was calling you to disobey Him – just 1 second in Jannah, the joy of 1 second alone will completely wipe out all those difficult times and calamities you faced in this world.

    A place in which all the people of Jannah will gather together in a market place every Friday: all the righteous believers, all the Prophets of Allah (alayhi salaam), the companions of the Prophet Muhammad (sa), and the Prophet Muhammad (sa) himself!

    A place in which the people of Paradise will have conversations of the time they spent on this earth, such as “Do you remember that time when we were afraid of so-and-so, or such-and-such but Allah guided us, and look how gracious Allah has been to us by saving us from the hellfire.


    Now these are just some examples of Jannah told to us from the Qur’aan and the Hadith, we can talk about Jannah all day and night, it will not suffice its delights, because it is too much for us to comprehend. But the main thing is that Jannah is real, same as the Hellfire – and we will end up in one or the other…

    But the question is: What are we doing to get to Paradise and what are we doing to save ourselves from the horrors of the Hellfire? Are we willing to sacrifice the chance of getting to Jannah, in exchange for the limited pleasures of this world by giving into our desires?

    View this life as an exam, and as with any exam you’ve got to revise to pass – what would you think of a person going into an exam without any preparation, even though he had been given all the answers? Well this is the analogy of our lives here on earth; Allah and His Prophet Muhammad (sa) have told us how to get to Jannah and how to save ourselves from the Hellfire – Now it’s up to us whether or not we want to respond to this call….

    Did you know that Allah has already created the paradise and has already created the hellfire? And we all have a place in them both awaiting us?

    Now depending on how we spent our life here in this world, one of them will be destroyed. We pray to Allah that we all get that place in Jannah, and our place in Hellfire is destroyed.

    Understand once we have died, that’s it - we have no more chances to do the good deeds, no more chances to repent and say sorry to Allah. Each day is a blessing from Allah that we have another day to do the good deeds. How foolish would we be, if we knew the truth about Islaam but spent our lives not believing and worshiping Allah in His Oneness, not living by the Sunnah of His Prophet Muhammad (sa), not praying to Him 5 times a day, not fasting the month of Ramadan, not paying our zakah and not making the Hajj?

    What would we say to Allah… that we were too busy?

    Is Allah asking us for too much?

    Has he not given us everything: good health, wealth, a home, a family, food, clothing, countless blessings (we could never re-pay him back even if we tried)… and all He asks us to do is worship Him without associating partners, and to live our lives according to the Sunnah (way) of His Prophet Muhammad (sa)… Is this too much? And if we simply did that, Allah promises us Paradise? And if we didn’t Allah also promises us the Hellfire. He says in the interpretation of the meaning:

    “And whosoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad SAW), and transgresses His limits, He will cast him into the Fire, to abide therein; and he shall have a disgraceful torment.” [4:14]

    So we need to ask ourselves: Are we in or are we out? Do we want the Jannah or do we want this world? And if we want Paradise, are we willing to sacrifice all that we have got for Allah? We have to decide what we want. The choice is ours…

    It’s never too late, we must rectify ourselves now before the Angel of Death comes and takes our souls, only then it will be too late. Remember nothing in this world, no pleasure of this world, is worth loosing Paradise.

    Remember, Allah says in the interpretation of the meaning:

    “Every soul shall have taste of death; In the end to Us shall ye be brought back" [Surah Al-'Ankabut, 29:57]

    wa'alaikumussalam warahmatullahi wabarakatuh sister.

    Ameen, JazakiAllahu khair and thank you. :)

    assalam 'alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh brother.

    Yes there is vine in Jannah. Allah (subuhaanahu wata'aala) mentions in Surah Muhammad, "(Here is) a parable of the Garden which the righteous are promised. In it are rivers of water, incorruptible; rivers of milk of which the taste never changes; rivers of wine, delicous to those who drink; and rivers of honey, pure and clear. In it there are for them all kinds of fruits and forgiveness from their Lord. (Can those in such bliss) be compared to such as shall dwell for ever in the fire? (Those to whom shall) be given boiling water to drink, (it will be so hot that) it cuts up their bowels (to pieces)."

    Quran Muhammad 47:15



    at-Tirmidhi reports, with a sahih isnaad, from Haakim ibn Mu'aawiyah that the Messenger of Allaah sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam said, "In Paradise there is a sea of honey, a sea of wine, a sea of milk and a sea of water, and the rivers flow out of these seas."
    [Jaami' al-Usool,10 /508]

    :) So there are not a small amount in Jannah. Here people have bottles or other storages. There, people will have Rivers. Allahu Akbar!

    YES! and thanks to brother IbnAddam77 for providing the proof from the hadith and the ayah, I also wanted to add that the wine in Jannah is not like the ones in this world...the wine in jannah is not intoxicating! it's pure wine that does not intoxicate us in away! inshaAllah, a brother or a sister will provide the proof for that from the sunnah or Quran as I dont know them excatly but I have heard them:D

    Ameen and BaarakiAllahu feeki sister. Indeed Paradise is something which No Eyes have seen, No Years have heard and No Brain can imagine, as said by Rasoolullah 9sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam).

    Will we be able to see our Prophet even if we are in somehow low level Jannah? Can we be near him how long we want?

    And one more question I listened somewhere that every Friday Allah (cc) will show Himself to the people in Jannah,is this right ? If so, who will have chance to reach that level, what should we do to be in that position?

    Sister as far as your first question is concerned, I have no exact knowledge about it. Therefore I have sent question to a scholar now. InshaAllah I will let you know when I receive an answer. Or may be another brother or sister can be able to help you on the question.

    As per the second question, yes the inhabitants of Paradise will see the face of their Lord. It is proven by Quran and Authentic Hadiths. :)

    Just click here to find out proof.
