Question: “What does God say in the Qur’an about Paradise?”
Answer: The word “paradise” in Arabic, means “garden”.
The Almighty Lord Informs us that, two Gardens for human, parallel to two for Jinn, on the highest heavens, are awaiting the Believers, their permanent residents.
Everything about these Gardens have been Said symbolically; for the reason that we cannot possibly imagine their identity and contents, due to the fact that we have never seen or lived anything like it.
So what we know about them, is that they are extremely green and fertile, with abundant water and provisions; where there are no pollution, no misery, no fear and worries, no old age, no hunger or lack of water. Everything one wishes can get! The total happiness and comfort, without banning the sex appeals.
The advantages of the higher heaven’s Gardens (one for human and one for Jinn) , are of course much more than the lower ones.
Symbolically, if in the lower heaven you have to get your needs yourselves, in the upper heaven everything is served for you by “butlers wearing white gloves.”
The fact that we all have to pass through Hell, as the Statement in the Qur’an; is also for better appreciating the Paradise. Hell of course being the earth, the lowest of the lowness livings, with all its pollution and miseries; and the paradise is all one’s dreams and wishes, that cannot be realized on earth!
