Jannah (Paradise) in a Nutshell

I had the privilege of giving an intensive class on Jannah that went on from 11am to 7:30pm. We went through ‘nearly’ every single explicit detail from the Koran and Sunnah on the description of Jannah, step by step. At the start of the session I asked Sister Yasmine Moghad, the well known eloquent daieh (May Allah subhanu Watala protect her and give her barakah) what her experience in attention span is when delivering her talks, she said approximately 20 minutes.

Abu Hurayrah (Radia Allahu Anh) reported that the Prophet (Sallah Allahu Alieh Waslam) said that Allaah (Subhanu Watala) said, “I have prepared for My slaves what no eye has seen, no ear has heard and no human mind can imagine”.

I very much agree. That is why the Prophet Sallah Allahu Alieh Wasalam used to make his sermons short and selective. I was amazed, however, at how everyone pulled through and maintained the concentration and attentiveness throughout that time, considering the length of it. I received tens of emails thanking me and it is -Wallahi- me who should thank everyone who attended.

The summary I stated of how to view Jannah was summarized in the following analogy:

If there were two embryos (twins) in the a mother’s womb and one is out in the world before the other, the one who is out tells his brother, “Come out! We have light, air, and instead of the umbilical cord for nourishment, we have milk.”

The one inside dislikes the change. He wants to remain there, thinking the best life is that where he is–enjoying the umbilical cord.

Then they both nurse from their mom.
One is weaned while the other is not.
The weaned one tells his brother, “You will not believe how nice of a life I have. I have fish, meat, fruit, vegetables, water, juice and so much more, while you only have milk.”

The fitrah of the infant still nursing is to dislike change and he thinks he is in the best life ever.

Finally, one twin dies and tells his brother,
“We have a garden bigger than your sky and earth!
Bricks of gold and silver!
Mortar of fragrant musk!
Pebbles of pearl and sapphire!
Soil of saffron!
A space the size of a whip here is better than your world and all that is in it!
Whoever enters where I’m at is filled with joy and will never feel miserable!
We live forever and never die!
Our clothes will never wear out and our youth will never fade!
We have lofty mansions on top of each other!
Fruits you could never imagine, and lofty palaces!
Best of all, we get to look at Allah (Subhanu Watala) and speak to him!!
His mercy overwhelmed us!” 

Yet the one in this life rejects and says, “Absolutely not. This is the best life. I want to stay in it. There is nothing like it, I don’t want to depart this (Dunya) world.”

That’s the perception we have of Jannah.

Abu Hurayrah (Radia Allahu Anh) reported that the Prophet (Sallah Allahu Alieh Waslam) said that Allaah (Subhanu Watala) said, “I have prepared for My slaves what no eye has seen, no ear has heard and no human mind can imagine”.

Recite if you wish, “No person know what is kept hidden for them of joy as a reward for what they used to do.” (32:17).

How can one explain Jannah when Abu Hurayrah (Radia Allahu Anh), reported that the Prophet (Sallah Allahu Alieh Waslam) said, “Never mind what Allah has told you; what He has not told you is EVEN greater”. [Muslim]

(And when you look there (in Paradise), you will see a delight (that cannot be imagined), and a great dominion.)76:20

May Allah Subhanu Watalah grant and reunite us in Ferdous.

If Allah makes you stand up you will never fall, and if he lets you fall and leaves you to yourself, you will always fall.
