The True Home Promised To The Believers 


“No person knows what is kept hidden for them of joy as a reward for what they used to do.” (Quran 32: 17 Translated meaning)

Paradise is the place promised to believers for their belief in Allah and for their devotion to Him. Paradise, as described in many verses, is a place enveloped in many kinds of blessings and it is a residence of eternal bliss. Allah awards the believers with paradise as compensation for their deeds in the world.

Paradise is a place where the "Merciful" (the mercy of Whom is exclusively for the believers, the Most Merciful, Who awards those who properly use His blessings with more superior and eternal blessings) attribute of Allah is revealed. Paradise, therefore, is a home of delight that harbours everything that a person's soul may desire and even more as described in the verses.

In some people's minds, the word "paradise" conjures up rather limited notions, for they suppose paradise to be a place of merely natural beauty, such as a delightful meadow. There is, however, a great difference between this limited notion and the paradise described in the Quran.

In the Quran, paradise is described as a place containing everything a person may desire:
“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. This is the Paradise which you have been made to inherit because of your deeds which you used to do (in the life of the world).” (Quran 43: 71-72 Translated meaning)
In another verse we are told that in paradise there is even more than what man could want:

“There will be for them therein all that they wish,- and more besides in Our Presence” (Quran 50: 35 Translated meaning )

In other words, contrary to general belief, paradise has numerous blessings to offer, blessing such as remained unseen by human beings throughout their lives in this world and even unimaginable to them. Believers will be granted eternal life in paradise in return for their obedience to Allah in the life of this world and for their having lived according to His wishes.

The paradise that is promised to the believers is described in various verses:

“And give glad tidings to those who believe and do righteous good deeds, that for them will be Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise). Every time they will be provided with a fruit therefrom, they will say: "This is what we were provided with before," and they will be given things in resemblance (i.e. in the same form but different in taste) and they shall have therein pure mates and they will abide therein forever. (Quran 2: 25 Translated meaning)

"Truly! The Muttaqun (pious and righteous persons) will be amidst Gardens and water-springs (Paradise). (It will be said to them): Enter therein (Paradise), in peace and security. And We shall remove from their breasts any sense of injury (that they may have), (So they will be like) brothers facing each other on thrones. No sense of fatigue shall touch them, nor shall they (ever) be asked to leave it." (Quran 15: 45-48 Translated meaning)

“These! For them will be Adn (Eden) Paradise (everlasting Gardens); wherein rivers flow underneath them, therein they will be adorned with bracelets of gold, and they will wear green garments of fine and thick silk. They will recline therein on raised thrones. How good is the reward, and what an excellent resting place (dwelling)!” (Quran 18: 31 Translated meaning)

“Verily, the dwellers of the Paradise, that Day, will be busy in joyful things. They and their wives will be in pleasant shade, reclining on thrones. They will have therein fruits (of all kinds) and all that they ask for. (It will be said to them): Salamun (peace be on you), a Word from the Lord (Allah), Most Merciful.” (Quran 36: 55-58 Translated meaning)

“Verily! The Muttaqun (pious), will be in place of Security (Paradise). Among Gardens and Springs; Dressed in fine silk and (also) in thick silk, facing each other. So (it will be), and We shall marry them to Houris (female fair ones) with wide, lovely eyes. They will call therein for every kind of fruit in peace and security; They will never taste death therein except the first death (of this world), and He will save them from the torment of the blazing Fire, As a Bounty from your Lord! That will be the supreme success!” (Quran 44: 51-57 Translated meaning)

“And those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds, to them We shall surely give lofty dwellings in Paradise, underneath which rivers flow, to live therein forever. Excellent is the reward of the workers.” (Quran 29: 58 Translated meaning)

"Invite to the Way of your Lord with wisdom and fair preaching, and argue with them in a way that better. Truly, your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His Path, and He is the Best Aware of those who are guided."

Holy Qur’an 16:125


"Narrated Aishah (radhi-yallaahu 'anhaa): The Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) said, “Do good deeds properly, sincerely and moderately, and receive good news because one's good deeds will not make him enter Paradise.” They asked, “Even you, O Allah's Messenger?” He said, “Even I, unless and until Allah protects me with His pardon and His Mercy."
