From the Bliss of Jannah!

Bismillahi Wal Hamdullillah Was Salaatu Was Salaamu ‘Alaa Rasoolillahi

Ammaa Ba’d:

Indeed from the belief of Ahlus Sunnati Wal Jamaa’ah is the belief in the presence of the Jannah and the hellfire.

Imaamut Tahaawi Mentions in his Aqeedatut Tahaawiyah:

“..and (we believe) that Jannah and the Naar (Hellfire) are both created (ie and existing) they will never come to an end or cease to exist

And indeed from the greatest of the things that will encourage the servant with righteous action is his focusing on pleasing His lord and desire that which he has prepared for his righteous servants, His Good Pleasure and his Jannah.

Here then is something of that which Allah has prepared for his servants in Jannah, hoping that it brings benefit to the believers

Nothing in Jannah is the same as in this world

Upon the authority of Abu Hurairah

I have prepared for my righteous servants, that which no eye has seen and no ear has heard and it has not occurred to the heart of anyone

(Collected by Bukhaari and Muslim)

Ibn Abbas mentioned concerning the statement of Allah:

“And give glad tidings to those who believe and do righteous good deeds that for them will be gardens beneath which rivers flow. 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, and they will have therein purified spouses and they will abide therein forever”

(Suratul Baqarah Vs 25)

Concerning the statement “..they will be given things in resemblance” Ibn Abbaas mentioned:

“..Nothing from the things of this world that are in Jannah are the same, except in Name

(Collected By Imaam Ibn Jareer At Tabari in his tafseer 1/392)

They will be youthful without bodily hair or beards

Upon the authority of Abu Hurairah – Radhiyallahu anhu – who said the Messenger of Allah – Sallallahu alahi Was Salam said: “Indeed the people of Jannah will not have bodily hair or beards, and they will have (Natural) Kuhl on their eyes. Their youth will never end and their garments will never wear out

(Collected by At Tirmidhi (2539) and declared ‘Saheeh’ By shaikh Al Albaani in Saheeh At Targheeb)

They will have the characteristics of prophets

Upon the authority of Al Miqdaam who said the Messenger of Allah – Sallallahu alaihi was Salam said: ” There is no one that dies as a miscarried fetus or an elderly person – and all people are between these (two) – except that he will be raised thirty three years old. If he is from the people of Jannah (then) he will be upon the stature of Aadam, (will have) the form of Yusuf and (will have) the heart of Ayoob, and whosoever is from the people of the fire then he will be enormous and tremendous in size like mountains

(Collected by Baihaqi and declared Hasan By Shaikh Al Albaani In ‘Saheeh targheeb’ (3701)

The servants of the people of Jannah

Upon the authority of Abdullah ibn Amr who said: “Indeed the lowest of the people of Jannah in Station will have a thousand servants busily serving him. Each servant will be carrying out a duty different from the other then he recited the Ayah “If you were to see them you would consider them scattered pearls (Suratul Insaan Vs 19)”

(Collected by Ibn Jareer At Tabari and declared ‘Saheeh’ in saheeh Targheeb (3705))

The Seas of Jannah

Upon the authority of hakeem Ibn Mu’aawiyah Al Qushairi from his father who said i heard the Messenger of Allah – Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam say:”In Jannah there is an Ocean of Water, an Ocean of Milk, An Ocean of Honey and an Ocean of Wine, then the rivers (of Jannah) emanate from them.”

(Collected by Ibn Hibbaan (2623 – Mawaarid) and Tirmidhi (2574) and declared ‘Hasan’ by Shaikh Al Abaani in ‘Saheeh At targheeb’  (3722))

The nature of the rivers in Jannah

Upon the authority of Anas ibn maalik who said: “Perhaps you presume that the rivers of Jannah are entrenched into the earth (ie as worldly rivers are), No! By Allah Verily they Flow upon the surface of the ground, One of its banks is made of pearl and the other is made of Ruby, its soil is made of Adhfar Musk so i said: “what is adhfar? he said: ” pure and unmixed

The Trees of Jannah

Ibn Hibbaan collects a hadeeth that mentions that a Jewish Man approached the prophet and said: ” Oh Abul Qaasim! Do you not claim that the people of Jannah will eat in Jannah and drink? So he said: “Yes! by he in whose hands is the soul of Muhammad! Indeed one of them will be given the strength of one hundred men for eating, drinking and sexual relations” he (The man) said: But the one who eats and drinks needs to answer to the call of nature, but there will be nothing harmful (or unpleasant) in Jannah! so he replied: “Answering the call of nature for one of them will be through perspiration that will exit their skins with the fragrance of musk, then their stomachs will be emptied (and become lean)

(Collected by Ahmad and Nasaa’ie and declared ‘Saheeh’ by Shaikh Al Albaani in ‘Saheeh Targheeb’ 3739)

Upon the authority of Sulaim Ibn Aamir who said:”The companions of the messenger of Allah used to say: “Indeed Allah used to benefit us by way of the Bedouin Arabs and their questions. A Bedouin approached one day and said: “Oh Messenger of Allah! Indeed Allah has mentioned a harmful tree in Jannah, but i did not percieve that there would be in Jannah a tree that could be harmful to its possessor? The Messenger of Allah – Sallallahu alaihi wa Salam said: “And what is it? he said “the ‘Sidr’ (Lote) tree for it has harmful thorns” The Messenger – Sallallahu alaihi was Salam Said: “Didnt Allah say: “(They will be) among thornless lote trees” (Al Waaqi’ah 28)? Allah will remove their thorns and will put in the place of each thorn, fruits, it will indeed produce fruits.(Each) fruit will blossom having seventy two colours of different flavours, and no colour will resemble the other

And if they desire children!…

The Singing of Jannah!

Upon the authority of Abu Huraira who said: “Indeed in Jannah there is a River the length of Jannah, along both of its banks there are maidens, standing facing each other, they will sing in the most beautiful voice the creation has heard, to the extent that they will not believe that there is a pleasure (In Jannah) like it. So we said: “Oh Abu Hurairah! What is that singing? “If Allah wills it will be ‘Tasbeeh’ (Saying ‘Subhanallah’), Tahmeed (saying Al Hamdullillah), glorifying and praising the Lord – Exalted and praised be he

(Collected by Baihaqi and declared ‘Saheeh’ By Shaikh Naasir in ‘Saheeh Targheeb’ 3751)

The Messenger of Allah Said: “If you enter Jannah a horse made of ruby with two wings will be brought to you and you will be carried upon it and it will fly with you(in Jannah) wherever you wish!

(Collected by At Tirmidhi and declared ‘Saheeh Li Ghairihi’ by Shaikh Albaani in ‘Saheeh Targheeb’ (3757)

Upon the authority of Sulaimaan ibn Buraidah from his father who said: That a man asked the prophet – Sallallahu alaihi Was Salam – and said: “Are there horses in Jannah? So the prophet – Sallallahu Alaihi Was Salam said: “If Allah enters you into Jannah Then you not wish to be brought a Stallion made of red ruby that will fly with you wherever you wish, except that it will occur!” So (another) man asked “Oh Messenger of Allah! are there any Camels in Jannah? but he didnt respond to him with that which he said to his companion (ie the first questioner) He said: “If Allah enters you into Jannah then you will have whatever your soul desires and whatever delights your eye!”
