  • Face to Face : Masrur of Paradise & Maqrur of Fire


  • The peak of all blessings

    In Paradise the blessings are endless. The people of Paradise know no envy nor hatred but only love; human love and Divine love. They do not use money but despite this, all they long to

    have they have immediately.

     

    Allah, the Almighty, has bought from the believers their souls and their money in return for Paradise, man of course the one who benefits the most from this deal. At the same time

    however nobody can enter Paradise due to his good deeds because Paradise is much greater and surmounts all good deeds, people enter Paradise only by Allah's Mercy.

     

    The Ever-Glorious Qur'an speaks about Allah's devoted servants in Paradise saying, for them there will be a known provision (in Paradise). Fruits; and they shall be honored in the Gardens of delight (Paradise). Facing one another on thrones. Round them will be passed a cup of pure wine; white, delicious to the drinkers. Neither they will have Ghoul (any kind of hurt, abdominal pain, headache, a sin, etc.) from that, nor will they suffer intoxication there from. And with them will be chaste females, restraining their glances (desiring none except their husbands), with wide and beautiful eyes. (Delicate and pure) as J they were (hidden) eggs (well) preserved.)

     

    These previous verses describe the material blessings of Paradise and in return the spiritual blessings are represented in the closeness to Allah, which is mentioned in more than one verse.

    The Prophet (pbuh) said about Paradise, "In Paradise, there is what no eye has ever seen and wآ·hat no ear has ever heard and what no mind has ever compass."

     

    Great as it is, there is something yet much greater. When all the polytheists enter Hell-fire and all the believers enter Paradise, Allah reveals Himself to His servants.

     

    Allah, the Almighty, says, (Some faces that Day shall be shining and radiant. Looking at their Lord (Allah).

     

    And here the believers bow hastily to their Lord but Allah Says to them, "Raise your heads for this is not a place to bow in. O my servants I have only called you to have the blessing of seeing Me so do you have now any wish left?"

     

    Thus they will say, "What else can we ask for after you have saved us from Hell-fire and made us enter Paradise, giving us the pleasure of looking at Your Honorable Face."

     

    Allah will then say, "Yes there is something left."

     

    They will say, "What is it our Lord?"

     

    He will say, "To be content with you forever and never to be angry with you."
