Paradise (Heaven) is a reward for pious people. Let’s define Paradise. No one can imagine and understand Paradise’s beauty and truth until they arrive. Allah has described the beauty and Peace of Paradise (Heaven) in the Quran, where everyone will be happy and satisfied.
Define Paradise (Heaven):
A paradise is a place different from this universe. A paradise is a place where there will be no sorrow, anxiety, or depression. So, Everyone will be offered the things their souls and hearts desire. That is a place of beauty, blessings, and fragrance. No one can imagine the beauty and Peace of Paradise. Allah has prepared Paradise as a reward for the pious and good people.
Paradise (Heaven) is Different from this World:
It is a place different from this world. Here in this world, people suffer from sorrow and pain and the hardships of this world, but there in Paradise, there will be no sorrow any hardship; instead, there will be strange Peace and joys which no one can even think of.
Here in this world, we have to suffer from poverty and pain, some people suffer from hunger and different types of severe diseases, but a heaven is a place where everyone will be rich and healthy.
“They will never fall ill, blow their noses or spit.” (Saheeh Al-Bukhari)
That is where everyone will enjoy the blossoms and happiness. ALLAH has promised the people of Heaven that they will be rewarded with comfort and wealth.
Paradise (Heaven) In The light of the Quran:
ALLAH gives us a glimpse of this when he says:
كُلُوا۟ وَٱشْرَبُوا۟ هَنِيٓـًٔۢا بِمَآ أَسْلَفْتُمْ فِى ٱلْأَيَّامِ ٱلْخَالِيَةِ
“Eat and drink at ease for that which you have sent forth (good deeds) in days past!” (Quran 69:24)
And He said,
أُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ لَهُمْ جَنَّٰتُ عَدْنٍ تَجْرِى مِن تَحْتِهِمُ ٱلْأَنْهَٰرُ يُحَلَّوْنَ فِيهَا مِنْ أَسَاوِرَ مِن ذَهَبٍ وَيَلْبَسُونَ ثِيَابًا خُضْرًا مِّن سُندُسٍ وَإِسْتَبْرَقٍ مُّتَّكِـِٔينَ فِيهَا عَلَى ٱلْأَرَآئِكِ ۚ نِعْمَ ٱلثَّوَابُ وَحَسُنَتْ مُرْتَفَقًا
“Those will have gardens of perpetual residence; beneath them, rivers will flow. They will be adorned therein with bracelets of gold and will wear green garments of fine silk and brocade, reclining on adorned couches. Excellent is the reward, and good is the resting place.“
One type of suffering and pain in this world is the death of loved ones. But no one will die in Heaven . All shall live eternally and enjoy the pleasures therein.
There will be no bad words and hurting comments in Paradise (Heaven). There everyone will hear good words and beautiful voices.
لَا يَسْمَعُونَ فِيهَا لَغْوًا وَلَا تَأْثِيمًا
“They will not hear therein ill speech or commission of sin.
إِلَّا قِيلًا سَلَٰمًا سَلَٰمًا
But only the saying of Peace! Peace!”
There will be no enmity between people nor ill feelings:
وَنَزَعْنَا مَا فِى صُدُورِهِم مِّنْ غِلٍّ تَجْرِى مِن تَحْتِهِمُ ٱلْأَنْهَٰرُ ۖ وَقَالُوا۟ ٱلْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ ٱلَّذِى هَدَىٰنَا لِهَٰذَا وَمَا كُنَّا لِنَهْتَدِىَ لَوْلَآ أَنْ هَدَىٰنَا ٱللَّهُ ۖ لَقَدْ جَآءَتْ رُسُلُ رَبِّنَا بِٱلْحَقِّ ۖ وَنُودُوٓا۟ أَن تِلْكُمُ ٱلْجَنَّةُ أُورِثْتُمُوهَا بِمَا كُنتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ
“And We will have removed whatever is within their breasts of resentment, [while] flowing beneath them are rivers. And they will say, “Praise to Allāh, who has guided us to this, and we would never have been guided if Allāh had not guided us. Certainly, the messengers of our Lord had come with the truth.” And they will be called, “This is Paradise, which you have been made to inherit for what you used to do.”
The Prophet said:
“There will be no hatred or resentment among them, their hearts will be as one, and they will glorify God, morning and evening.”
The hearts of the inhabitants of heaven will be clean; their speech will be respectable, their actions righteous. There will be no cruel, hurtful, aggressive, or provocative talk there, for Paradise (Heaven) is free of all worthless words and deeds.
