Face to Face : Masrur of Paradise & Maqrur of Fire
Dreams in paradise
One time Maqrur was sitting in the garden of his palace with his friend, the Egyptian believer, they were talking about Paradise and its blessings.
The Egyptian believer said, "Man is the being whose hopes never end and whose aspirations never finish. There is no way to achieve such endless hopes except in Paradise because it is
Endless and eternal. Tell me what are your hopes, Maqrur?"
Maqrur thought for a while and said, "To tell you the truth, I am in great but sweet confusion. My mind is full of thousands of dreams and hopes but I do not know where to start. Maybe you can tell me about your own dreams."
The Egyptian believer said, "My first dream or wish is to see Musa. He was a strong man. Allah spoke to him. I had the honor of defending him and of resisting the idea of killing him. I also want to see the honorable Prophet in whose book, the Ever-Glorious Qur'an, my story was mentioned. Then I would like to see Nuh (Noah), 'Isa (Jesus) and Ibrahim (Abraham) (May the blessings of Allah be upon them all). I think that meeting all those prophets and talking with them would be a great pleasure. After this I would like to meet the prominent personalities, who greatly affected human history. Imagine what it would be like to pray behind all those honorable prophets. Surely you know that all the prophets were sent with one message as Allah says, a Worship Allah! You have H0 other god bur Him? This is what all the prophets said to their people. Their legislation might have varied according to time and place but the essence of their legislation was the same, namely monotheism. You will find in your library books the stories of all the messengers and prophets and you will also find all the divine books, the original script, before having their words altered. What about you, Maqrur?"
Maqmr said, "I shall go with you if Allah wills."
