What is Heaven (Paradise)
Heaven is also created which is a place of rest and enjoyment & all sorts of comforts will be made available there which will be provided to the pious people for their piety by the grace of Almighty Allah (God).
The Heavens and its dwellers will never be destroyed; the dwellers of Heaven will not face any sort of trouble, worry or sufferings whereas (for their good deeds) they will be happy.
The great blessings in the Heaven will be the sight of Allah (God) for the dwellers of Heaven. Compared to it all other favors’ will be nothing.
Every one of them according to their grade & rank will mediate but the door of mediation will be inaugurated by Prophet Muhammad (SAWS)
Abu Sa’id Khudri reported that Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) said that Almighty Allah (God) will say to the people of Heaven, “0 people of Heaven.” They will answer, “0 our Lord, we are present and all goodness is in your hands.” Almighty Allah (God) will then say to them, “Are you pleased?” They will say, “0 our Lord, how could we not be pleased when you have given us [those bounties] which you have not given to any of your creation?” Almighty Allah (God) will say, ” Should I not give you something better than all this?” They will say, ” What can be better than all this?” Allah will say, “I enter you into my happiness and I will never become angry at you.” (Muslim -7140, Bukhari – 5649)
A person will only be able to completely enjoy the bounties of Heaven when he knows that the owner of these bounties are pleased with him and will never become angry with him. His enjoyment of these bounties will increase when he knows that it is impossible for him to lose them.
Suhayb Reported that Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) said, “When the people of Heaven enter into Heaven, Almighty Allah (God) will say to them, ‘Do you want anything else?’ They will say, ‘Did you not brighten our faces and enter us into Heaven? Did you not save us from Hell?’ Then, Almighty Allah (God) will remove the veil and they will not be given anything more beloved to them than the sight of their Lord. (Sahih Muslim) 449
Almighty Allah (God) has placed in every human being the natural desire & inclination for, money, Diamonds gold & silver transportation such as land, Cars& other items of this world. The test for a person is how he responds to his desire for these items. If he uses these items to prepare for the hereafter, he will be successful. On the other hand, if he devotes himself to fulfilling his desire for these items & forgets about his purpose in this world, he will be amongst the losers in the hereafter.
Similarly, Almighty Allah (God) has placed in every person the natural desire for the opposite sex, & out of all the desires found in a person, the greatest test for a Muslims is how he fulfills this desire. He can either fail this test by spending all his energy to unlawfully satisfy this desire, or pass this test by remaining chaste & fulfilling this desire lawfully through marriage.
Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) said:Regarding the severity of this test, “I have not left a more harmful & severe temptation for men than woman. (Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim)
This test is even greater for us today because of the generally evil environment in which we are living in. It has become very easy to commit evil & it has become somewhat difficult to do good deeds because of this environment. As Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) predicted, holding on to the commands of Almighty Allah (God) & staying away from evil during this time has become like holding on to a burning coal.
In order to motivate us to pass this test, it is very very important for you to know what the reward is for Controlling one’s desires & staying away from evil. It becomes very easy for a person to undergo difficulty & hardship to carry out an action when he knows what reward he will receive for doing this action. For example, a person will happily go to work every day & tire himself because he knows that he will receive his paycheck at the end of the month. In the same way, Almighty Allah (God) & his Prophet have given us a detailed descreption of the reward for controlling one’s desires in this world, i.e. Heaven (Jannah).
Heaven is a place where a person will have all that he desires, & he will live a perfect (lad ever-lasting life. Each pleasure of Heaven will be far more superior to the comparable pleasure found in this world, & a person will be able to completely fulfill his desire for that pleasure. For example, a person in this world is always drinking liquids to quench his thirst. No matter how many delicious & tasty beverages he consumes, he will always become thirsty again in a few hours. But, in the hereafter, a person will be able to drink as much as he desires & quench his thirst permanently. Similarly, the woman of Heaven will be far more superior to the woman of this world. Once a person comes to know of this, it will become very easy for him to stay away from evil & work towards the hereafter.
