We know that food and existing hardware in Paradise are incomparable to those that we know down here. But do we know how this difference is impressive? It is impossible to capture the splendor of Paradise equipment and perfection of its food. However, we can recall the words of Allah and His Messenger ( ‘alayhi wasallam) to find that these elements beyond our imagination.

We will use the respective works of Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya and Ibn Kathir (may Allah have mercy on them) entitled “Paradise” and “The delights of Paradise.” We will look at the fruits of Paradise and their differences with the earthly life of fruit, then we will stop on the food and drink of the inhabitants of Paradise before we look at their clothes, their ornaments, their carpets and beds insha’allah.

Fruit of Paradise

We know that there are fruits in Heaven Allah said in the Holy Quran: { They contain fruits, palm trees and pomegranates. } (Surah 55: Verse 68). He also says: { They contain two species of each fruit .} (Sourate55: Verse 52). So many verses evoke the presence of fruit in Paradise. It is unanimously accepted as present in the words of our Lord.

The fruits of Paradise differ from earthly fruits on several points. The fruits of the hereafter are available continuously while terrestrial fruits are grown seasonally. In this sense, Allah says: { They will be among thornless lotus, and among the banana trees well supplied regimes in a shadow extended near water flowing constantly, and abundant fruit never failing, in raised beds . } (Surah 56: Verses 27-34). “This is to say that do not disappear during certain periods; but exists in all seasons, “says Ibn Kathir (may Allah have mercy on him). Then he adds: “It’s not like in the life of this world where the fruits appear at certain seasons and are not found in others, where trees are covered with leaves for a time for s ‘rid during another. “Thus, the fruits of Paradise will be present without interruption.

Moreover, the fruits of Paradise are different from those of this world because they are accessible to all . Even when they are on top of a tree, the fruit available to residents of Paradise. Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya (may Allah have mercy on him) said that Moujahed said: “Whoever will want to eat these fruits standing, sitting or lying, will not be disturbed, fruits venues to him in a single order His part. “This is confirmed by the eminent scholar Ibn Kathir (may Allah have mercy on him) who said:” The fruit in Paradise is not prohibited to one who desires the sailing point, unable points. For those who want them, they are easy to access, close. Even when one of them is at the top of the tree and someone wishes, this fruit approaches him, bends over him and submit to him. “Allah has us among these people, amine.

Finally, the fruits of Paradise are different fruit that we know their taste, quality and abundance . In this sense, Ibn Abbas said: “Fruits of Paradise are identical to gourds, whiter than milk, sweeter than honey, softer than butter and no glitch.”Similarly, Jaber said:” While we were in the office Dohr, the Prophet ( ‘alaihi wasallam) came forward and we followed and then he made ​​the gesture of picking something, then he stepped back. When the prayer ended, Oubey ibn Ka’b said: “O Prophet of God, you made ​​a gesture that you have never done before! “He replied:” Paradise was offered me and all that he has wonderful. I picked a bunch of grapes to offer it to you, but I was unable to bring her back. If I had brought, you could eat you and all of heaven and earth without being able to overcome. »»

The food and drinks of the inhabitants of Paradise

The people of Paradise eat and drink but these foods will turn into musk emanating insha’Allah. Indeed, in the Sahih Muslim, Jaber said that the Messenger of Allah (alaihi wasallam) said: “The people of Paradise eat and drink. They do not vomit, urinate does not and will not make their needs. Their food will turn into musk emanation. Their breathing is praise to Allah and Takbir. ”

Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya (may Allah have mercy on him) said: “There is bread, meat, fruit, sweets and different kinds of drinks such as water, milk and wine. What exists in Heaven has no comparison with earthly things the same name. Adjectives describing names are literally different from what the human being knows. Where can roast meat while at the Paradise fire does not exist? There are two kinds of answer to that. The first: it is the will of God. The second: it roasts with Paradise conditions that God has made. The meat matures like fruits and food. It is also possible that the fire exists, but does not create any damage. Allah (glorified be He) is only Savant! “Thus, there are drinks and food in Paradise that bear the same names as those we know but their quality and nature are totally different.

Clothes, jewelery, carpets and beds the people of Paradise

The people of Paradise will be dressed in green insha’Allah. Their clothes are made ​​of silk and bear bracelets in gold or silver. This was told in the words of Allah. Indeed, he said: { God will admit those who believe and do right actions into Gardens under which rivers flow. They are adorned with bracelets of gold and pearls and their clothing is silk. } (Surah 22: Verse 23). He also says: { They wear green garments of satin and brocade. We trimmed them with silver bracelets and their Lord watered them with a pure drink. } (Surah 76: Verse 21).

In addition, men will wear crowns like kings and be disguised. In this sense, Abu Hurairah reported that the Messenger of Allah (alaihi wasallam) said about the ornaments of the inhabitants of Paradise: “The bracelets of gold and silver studded with pearls and emeralds. The man will wear a crown like that of kings, in a bright and well disguised youth. “Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya (may Allah have mercy on him) adds that” in Paradise, trimmed men will be more beautiful than women. ”

Furthermore, carpets and beds of heaven are described by Allah as being of immense beauty. In fact, He says: { They recline on beds with thick silk linings and the Fruit of the Gardens sway at their fingertips.} (Surah 55: Verse 54). He also says: {They Reclining on green sheets and carpets of sumptuous beauty.} (Surah 55: Verse 76).Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya (may Allah have mercy on him) commented on these verses as follows: “[Allah] described the beds with satin linings. If the lining is beautiful, what will their face? “.

May Allah forgive us and allow us to enter Heaven. Let us hope he offer us to taste his drink and fruit privilege.
