PARADISE IS OF 7 GRADES

>Jannat an-Na'eem
(the lowest Paradise)

And if only the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) had believed (in Muhammad SAW) and warded off evil (sin, ascribing partners to Allâh) and had become Al¬Muttaqûn (the pious - see V.2:2) We would indeed have expiated from them their sins and admitted them to Gardens of pleasure (in Paradise). (Al-Maeda 5: 65)

--Adam as was in heaven as the keeper of Paradise
--is not to open its gates before Muhammad saws enters it
--Shaytan has no influence in Paradise but he did in heaven
--and led Adam as and Hawwa as astray

Their reward with their Lord is 'Adn (Eden) Paradise (Gardens of Eternity), underneath which rivers flow, They will abide therein forever, Allâh will be pleased with them, and they with Him. That is for him who fears his Lord. (Al-Bayyina 98:8)

--ALLAH promised us that once we enter Paradise, we will never be out of it
--Paradise is everlasting, but ALLAH did not make that promise regarding heaven
--No human being can imagine what ALLAH has prepared for us in Paradise
--this is evidence that Adam was flung from Heaven not Paradise
--Paradise is a place which no eyes has seen it,
--no ears has heard it, and no minds can conceive it
--Adam as was in heaven and the above is hujjah

Jannat al-Ma'wa

Near it is the Paradise of Abode. (SURAH NAJM 53:15)

Jannat al-Adn

Their reward with their Lord is 'Adn (Eden) Paradise (Gardens of Eternity), underneath which rivers flow, They will abide therein forever, Allâh will be pleased with them, and they with Him. That is for him who fears his Lord. (SURAH BAYYINA 98:8)

“I have prepared for My righteous servants what no eye has seen and no ear has heard, nor has it occurred to the human heart. Thus, recite if you wish, ‘And no soul knows what joy has been kept hidden for them.”[Sahih al-Bukhari, Muslim, at-Tirmidhi, and ibn Majah, Surah Al Sajdah, 32: 17]


--there are things is Paradise are kept hidden by ALLAH
-- as our human minds cannot comprehend
--He did so out of HIS Mercy for us, ALLAH did not forget them
--ALLAH has more than 99 Names and Attributes
--some He did not reveal to us because we might not comprehend them

Dar Al-Akhirah : The 4th Paradise

And this life of the world is only an amusement and play! Verily, the home of the Hereafter, that is the life indeed (i.e. the eternal life that will never end), if they but knew. (SURAH ANKABOOT 29:64)

Dar Al-Salam : The 5th Paradise
5) Darul-Salam

Allâh calls to the Home of peace (i.e. Paradise, by accepting Allâh's religion of Islâmic Monotheism and by doing righteous good deeds and abstaining from polytheism and evil deeds) and guides whom He wills to a Straight Path. (SURAH YUNUS 10:25)

Darul Muqaama : The 6th Paradise
6) Darul Maqamat

Who, out of His Grace, has lodged us in a home that will last forever; where, toil will touch us not, nor weariness will touch us." (SURAH FATIR 35:35)

Darul Firdous: The highest Paradise: The 7th Paradise
--7) Jannat al-Firdaws

Who shall inherit the Firdous (Paradise). They shall dwell therein forever. (SURAH MUMENOOM 23:11)

Paradise has one-hundred grades which Allah has reserved for the mujahideen who fight in His cause, and the distance between each of two grades is like the distance between the Heaven and the earth. So, when you ask Allah (for something), ), ask for Al-Firdous which is the best and highest part of Paradise."(i.e., The sub-narrator added, "I think the Prophet also said, 'Above it (i.e. Al-Firdous) is the Throne of Beneficent (i.e. Allah), and from it originate the rivers of Paradise.") Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 4/48


--The Mu'minun will inherit it, those who safeguard their chastity
--humble in their salah,
--and truthful to their covenants, refrain from idle talks, pay zakah

RIVERS AND SPRINGS:

1) al-Kawthar

Verily, We have granted you (O Muhammad (SAW)) Al-Kauthar (a river in Paradise); (1) Therefore turn in prayer to your Lord and sacrifice (to Him only) (2) For he who hates you (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)), he will be cut off (from every posterity good thing in this world and in the Hereafter). (108: 1-3)


A river in Paradise for Rasulallah saws, ALLAH mentioned this river for him
saws when kuffar teased him at the death of his son Ibrahim


A spring there, called Salsabil. (SURAH INSAN 76:18)

2) Salsabil (spring)

It (that wine) will be mixed with Tasnîm. (SURAH MUTAFFIN 83:27)

3) Tasneem (spring)

It (that wine) will be mixed with Tasnîm. (27) A spring whereof drink those nearest to Allâh. (SURAH MUTAFFIFIN 83:27-28)


Millions of Muslimahs will have that name and the closest to ALLAH will have it

Verily, the Abrâr (the pious and righteous) shall drink of a cup (of wine) mixed with (water from a spring in Paradise called) Kâfûr. (SURAH INSAN 76:5)

4) al-Kafur, the righteous will drink from a cup which is mixed with wine and water
5) Zanjabila

And they will be given to drink there of a cup (of wine) mixed with Zanjabîl (ginger). (17) A spring there, called Salsabil. (18). (SURAH INSAN 76:17-18)


--wine which is mixed with Zanjabîl (ginger)
--all theses springs have a different taste
--not only one type of drink but they all have its own taste
--each spring in paradise and each wine in paradise taste different:
--shows there is variety in Paradise
--variety is better, similar to a man who is being served
--by his wife with the same juice day after day....
--fruits of Paradise have different taste day after day
--you won’t be bored in Paradise
--fruits of today will be tasting different than yesterdays

4 more drinks in Paradise
The description of Paradise which the Muttaqûn have been promised (is that) in it are rivers of water the taste and smell of which are not changed, rivers of milk of which the taste never changes, rivers of wine delicious to those who drink; and rivers of clarified honey (clear and pure) therein for them is every kind of fruit; and forgiveness from their Lord... (SURAH MUHAMMAD 47:15)

1- Water, no funny smell or color
2- Milk, does not decompose, does not change in its smell or color
The wine in the dunya makes you become intoxicated, makes your head hurt, makes you vomit, etc

3-- Wine, not similar to one in dunya which gives you headaches

--the wine in paradise, regardless of how much you drink,
--will not make you become intoxicated
--When you drink wine in the dunya, it destroys your organs
--The Wine in paradise, will not destroy your organs
--Those who drink wine in the dunya, will not drink wine in paradise
--if you die addicted to wine you die as a pagan
--those who drink wine will not have their salah accepted for 40 days*
--nothing is similar in dunya is similar or be compared
--except in names, their reality is completely different

Why did ALLAH refer to these things as milk
--honey, wine if they are different in Paradise?
--ALLAH used these names of the dunya to describe what’s in paradise to give you
--an idea of what ALLAH has prepared for you in paradise
--ALLAH used names of dunya so we would have an idea of what HE was talking about,
--but no human beings can conceive what’s in Paradise
--The reality of Paradise id different

THE FRUITS OF PARADISE

And with fruit, that they may choose. (Al-Waqia 56:20)


--you will be given any fruits you desire, the choice is yours
--Any fruit you desire in Paradise will be given to you

Reclining upon the couches lined with silk brocade, and the fruits of the two Gardens will be near at hand. (Ar-Rahman 55:54)
--no need to climb the tress to get the fruits in Paradise
--like it is the case in dunya
--some people loose their limbs in order to get these fruits

And with the flesh of fowls that they desire. (Al-Waqia 56:21)

--you will also get the meat of any bird that you desire
--any bird's meat you desire will be given to you
--Jews in Madinah asked what will be the first meat in Paradise
--and Rasulallah saws said the meat of the whale
--Jews were trying to show off with knowledge and
--were trying to trap Rasulallah saws
--and this answer prove his prophethood for only a man
--sent from ALLAH would know this answer

Al-Bukhaari reports that 'Abdullaah ibn Salaam asked the Prophet (saw) a number of questions when he first came to Madinah, one of which was, "What is the first thing that the people of Paradise will eat?" He said, "The caudate [extra] lobe of fish liver" [Ibn Katheer, an-Nihaayah, 2/270]

And they ask you (O Muhammad SAW) concerning the Rûh (the Spirit); Say: "The Rûh (the Spirit): is one of the things, the knowledge of which is only with my Lord. And of knowledge, you (mankind) have been given only a little." ( Al-Isra 17:85)


Another proof of his prophethood is when Rasulallah said if the father ejaculates first, the child will resemble his father and if the mother does it first, the child will resemble her

Narrated Anas: When the news of the arrival of the Prophet at Medina reached 'Abdullah bin Salam, he went to him to ask him about certain things, He said, "I am going to ask you about three things which only a Prophet can answer: What is the first sign of The Hour? What is the first food which the people of Paradise will eat? Why does a child attract the similarity to his father or to his mother?"

When you enter Jananh, ALLAH will turn to you asking if you desire anything else and you will reply by saying that you have been given all blessings

Some faces that Day shall be Nâdirah (shining and radiant). (22) Looking at their Lord (Allâh); (23). (SURAH QIYAMA 75:22-23)

FIRST MEAL IN PARADISE:

The Prophet said, "As for the first sign of The Hour, it will be a fire that will collect the people from the East to the West. As for the first meal which the people of Paradise will eat, it will be the caudate (extra) lobe of the fish-liver.


But ALLAH has kept HIS Face as an extra blessing
--and you will be looking at HIS Blessed Face in Jannah
--it is Ijma' amongst the 4 Imams that we will see ALLAH's Face when we enter Jannah --but the Shia said we will
--not see HIS Face nor in dunya nor in Akhirah
--But ALLAH said in Quran that we will see HIS Face in Surah 75:22-23

There are rivers in paradise,
--and they will run underneath the mansions in paradise
--rivers will run underneath the mansions in Paradise
--the rivers run in an orderly manner
--we will drink in utensils of gold and silver
--but we are prohibited to do so in dunya,
--if we do so here, we will be prohibited in Akhirah

Sahih Bukhari 4:468, Narrated Abu Huraira Allah's Apostle said, "The first group (of people) who will enter Paradise will be (glittering) like the moon when it is full. They will not spit or blow their noses or relieve nature. Their utensils will be of gold and their combs of gold and silver; in their centers the aloe wood will be used, and their sweat will smell like musk.

--if we use them here, we will be swallowing in our bellies the fire of Jahanaam
--we will be 33 years old, men and women alike

Narrated Umm Salama[4] Allah’s Messenger said, "He who drinks in a silver utensil is only swallowing Hell-fire in his stomach."[Agreed upon]

--garments will be silk and the color ALLAH likes is green
--and Rasul ALLAH’s favorite color was also green

"Green is the symbolic color of Islam. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH, peace be upon him) wore a green turban, and green is believed to have been his favorite color. Green was also the color of the banners used on the battlefield and the color of the first Islamic flag. The Quran and the Hadith, the teachings of Prophet Muhammad, describe Paradise as filled with green: the people of Paradise "will wear green garments of fine silk

'Adn (Eden) Paradise (everlasting Gardens) will they enter, therein will they be adorned with bracelets of gold and pearls, and their garments there will be of silk. (Fatir 35:33)

--green is symbolic color in Islam, it was the color of the first flag of Islam
--It is haraam for you to wear gold and silk in the dunya as a Muslim Man
--the reason it is haraam
--it is imitating the females and you’re supposed to be masculine

“It is as if I can see the Qaim [Hazrat Mahdi (as)], he will gird the white armor of the Messenger of Allah (saas) behind najaf, and after girding that armor, his body will expand, just like the body of the Messenger of Allah (saas). Clothing made from the silks of paradise will cover his armor ... (Imam Mahdi, Ali Irfan, Velayet Press, p. 94)

--haraam for men to wear gold and silver although not haraam for women
-- haraam for men because it is imitating the women
--ALLAH allows it for the woman, because it is the female natures
--of a woman to dress up for her husband
--allowed for women because it is their female nature to dress up for their husbands
--men cannot wear silk either

What will you hear in paradise? the singing of the birds, the singing of your wives (Hoor Al- Ayn), and you will hear the voices of the angels

--we will hear the singing of birds, Hoor al-Ayn, voices of the Angels
--Above all of that, you will hear the Voice of ALLAH

(It will be said to them): Salâm (peace be on you),— a Word from the Lord (Allâh), Most Merciful. (Ya-Seen 36:58)

--voices of prophets will be heard but above all these,
--we will hear the voice of ALLAH azza wa Jal
--You will hear no idle talk in Paradise
--no laghu' (idle speech) in Paradise

Where they shall neither hear harmful speech nor falsehood, (Al-Ghashiya 88:11)

Some faces that Day shall be Nâdirah (shining and radiant). (22) Looking at their Lord (Allâh); (23). (SURAH QIYAMA 75:22-23)


--you will see ALLAH (HIS Face) and this is an extra blessing and the greatest of all blessings

According to a report narrated by Al-Bukhari: “you will not have any doubts or disputes concerning seeing Him,” and seeing Him will not cause you any hardship or make you tired. And Allah knows best. [Summarized from Sharh Muslim]

--Surah 75:22-23 refute Shia Aqeeda saying we will not see ALLAH in Jannah
--In Paradise, there is a Jumu'ah, where people will gather
--and the faces of the people will shine, and when we return home,
--we will be more beautiful

And round about them will (serve) boys of everlasting youth. If you see them, you would think them scattered pearls. (Al-Insan 76:19)
--young boys in Paradise, similar to scattered pearls, they will be our servants, scholars have said they are the sons of kuffar who died before reaching age of puberty

There is a hadeeth which states that they will enter Paradise “aged thirty-three years” (narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2545; classed as Hasan by al-Albaani in Takhreej al-Mishkaat, 5634).

With regard to whether they will grow older, there are some Ahadith which do not confirm that they will not age. What has been proven from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) is that they “will never lose their youth.” (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2539; classed as Hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi, 2062)


And young full-breasted (mature) maidens of equal age, (An-Naba 78:33)

--wives of Paradise: black of eyes is very black
--and whiteness of its eyes are very white
--similar in age to you, 33 years old
--chest is very big, and the scent of her body
--is very pleasing, increases in beauty but not in age,
--her headscarf is better than everything in dunya

"If a woman prays her five (daily prayers), fasts her month (i.e. Ramadan), guards her private parts, and obeys her husband, it will be said to her, ‘Enter Paradise through whichever of the gates of Paradise you wish.’" (Sahih Al-Bukhari)

a Muslimah, who prays 5 times a day, obeys her husband, fasts Ramadan, and preserves her chastity, will enter Jannah from any gates she wants and will be far more beautiful than Hoor al-Ayn, Muslimahs in dunya worked hard to earn Jannah but not the Hoor al-Ayn that is why she is more beautiful

--wives of Paradise do not have umbilical cord, no menses, don’t urinate or defecate
--they only look at their husbands, all virgins

Wherein both will be Qasirat-ut-Tarf [chaste females (wives) restraining their glances, desiring none expect their husbands], with whom no man or jinni has had Tamth before them. (Ar-Rahman 55:56)

--Hoor al-Ayn only look at their husbands and none touched them before
--55:56 << this ayah is used as proof to show that Jinns also have sexual relations --scholars have used 55:56 as hujjah saying Jinn also have physical needs --Jinn tamper with human's private parts, hence humans have wet dreams*** --SOME married women flirt will other men, --look at them and they do so to make their husbands jealous, --80% of women in west have affairs --yet ALLAH says the women of paradise do not even LOOK at other men --Hoor al-Ayn are very loyal to their husbands --We will be sitting on cushions made of silk, --carpets will be red, no grief and sorrow in our chest There will be no hatred or envy
--jealousy, grief, sorry, pain, intoxication, no harmful speech,
--no grudges, no sorrow, no sickness

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “There will be no hatred or resentment among them, their hearts will be as one, and they will glorify Allah, morning and evening.” [Sahih Bukhari]

--no fatigue, no hatred, no envy, no breaking of promises,
--no sicknesses, we will be a new creation
--Shuhadah will have 72 wives and if you died a normal death,
--you will have 2 wives
--kuffar ridiculed this hadith saying Muslim men go
--to Jihaad for the Hoor al-Ayn
--Hamza Yusuf said these 72 wives are not "real"

"The Prophet Muhammad was heard saying: 'The smallest reward for the people of paradise is an abode where there are 80,000 servants and 72 wives [Tirmidhi Vol 4]

Saved from punishments of grave, given 72 wives, intercession for 70 members of their family, souls kept in green birds, saved from the great torment of Yawm al Qiyamat, cross the Sirat at the speed of lightening

--sins are forgiven at the first drop of blood*
--the soul (ruh) is able to respond and hear ALLAH

(the Prophet SAW) said: Their souls are in the insides of green birds having lanterns suspended from the Throne, roaming freely in Paradise where they please, then taking shelter in those lanterns. S QUDSI NO. 27

--we will be forever young in Jannah and no old people with enter it
--we will be young again before entering it
--there is no bleeding after childbirth, no salah,
--only dhikr, no beards for men, no menses, no mucus, etc...

There is no death in paradise; you will live forever
--no death after entering Jannat**

Surely! Those who disbelieved in Our Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) We shall burn them in Fire. As often as their skins are roasted through, We shall change them for other skins that they may taste the punishment. Truly, Allâh is Ever Most Powerful, All¬Wise. ( An-Nisa 4:56)
