From the chapter on ‘Paradise and Its People’: Tanbih Al-Ghafileen

 

It was said:

“Verily, in Paradise there is a huri named Lu’bah. If she were to spit into the ocean, it would purify all of its water. On her chest, there is written: ‘Whoever desires to have someone like me, then let him busy himself with obeying my Lord.'”

 

It was said:

“The ground in Paradise is made of silver, its dust is made of musk, the trunks of its made of gold and silver, the branches of its trees are made of pearls and gems, with its leaves and fruits growing out from them. So, whoever eats standing will not be harmed, whoever eats sitting will not be harmed, and whoever eats laying down will not be harmed, as Allah says: {“...and the bunches of fruit thereof will hang low within their reach.”} [al-Insan; 14]

That is, these fruits will be within their reach whether they are standing, sitting, or laying down.”

 

It was said:

“By the One who revealed the Book upon Muhammad (peace be upon him), the people of Paradise will increase in beauty and goodness everyday, just as they used to increase in old age and weakness in the world everyday.”

 

It was said:

“In Paradise, if anyone desires the meat of a bird, he simply calls out for one and it comes down and lands on its side. He eats smoked meat from one side of it and roasted meat from the other,then it comes back to life again and flies away.”

 

It was narrated from one of those who would abstain from the worldly pleasures that he would eat herbs and salt without any bread, so it was said to him: “You limit yourself to this?!” The man replied:

“Yes, because I live my life for Paradise, and you live your life for the bathroom (meaning, you eat the best of foods and end up in the bathroom, while I eat simple foods in order to sustain my ability to worship, hoping to end up in Paradise).”

 

It was narrated that a man desired to enter the bathroom, so his companion prevented him from doing so and said to him: “You cannot enter without paying a fee.” So, the man cried out and said:

O Allah! He has prevented me from entering the abode of the devils without a price, so how can I expect to enter the abode of the prophets and the truthful without a price?”

 

It was said:

“If Paradise could not be attained by anyone except if they abandoned all that they loved from this worldly life, then this would be nothing in comparison to Paradise.

If one could not be saved from Hell except by experiencing every hardship possible, then this would be nothing in comparison to Hell.

So, how is it when you can enter Paradise by abandoning one fraction of athousand of the things you like, and you can be saved from Hell by experiencin one fraction of athousand of hardship?”

 

It was narrated:

Verily, a woman of this world – if she makes it to Paradise – will be more virtuous and preferred over the Hur al-‘Ayn because of her actions in this world.”
