The path to Paradise is the perfect path that a Muslim should pave throughout his life because it is the goal of his existence. Paradise is the hope and the aspiration of every Muslim who believes in God and the Afterlife. It is one of the two eternal abodes where all humans and the Jinn will stay forever after passing away; either to Paradise or to Hell. The Islamic message came to set aright the worldly life of people and facilitate for them the attainment of Allah’s Pleasure and Paradise in the life to come. Therefore, Almighty Allah has detailed the description of Paradise in the Qur’an as well as the explanations narrated in the hadiths of the Prophet (peace be upon him) to endear it for people and stir their motives to it. Almighty God says,
And will reward them for what they patiently endured [with] a garden [in Paradise] and silk [garments]. [They will be] reclining therein on adorned couches. They will not see therein any [burning] sun or [freezing] cold. And near above them are its shades, and its [fruit] to be picked will be lowered in compliance. And there will be circulated among them vessels of silver and cups having been [created] clear [as glass]. Clear glasses [made] from silver of which they have determined the measure. And they will be given to drink a cup [of wine] whose mixture is of ginger. [From] a fountain within Paradise named Salsabeel. There will circulate among them young boys made eternal. When you see them, you would think them [as beautiful as] scattered pearls. And when you look there [in Paradise], you will see pleasure and great dominion. Upon the inhabitants will be green garments of fine silk and brocade. And they will be adorned with bracelets of silver, and their Lord will give them a purifying drink. [And it will be said], “Indeed, this is for you a reward, and your effort has been appreciated.” (Al-Insan 76:13-22)
Jabir (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: “The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, “The inhabitants of Paradise will eat and drink therein, but they will not have to pass excrement, to blow their noses or to urinate. Their food will be digested producing belch which will give out a smell like that of musk. They will be inspired to declare the freedom of Allah from imperfection and proclaim His Greatness as easily as you breathe.” (Muslim)
