The Garden (Paradise)

ONLY THE BELIEVERS WILL ENTER THE GARDEN

Those who believe in the Unseen and perform prayer and spend from what We have provided for them. Those who believe in what has been sent down to you and what was sent down before you, and are certain about the hereafter. They are the people guided by their Lord. They are the ones who have success. (Qur'an, 2:3-5)

And the Garden will be brought up close to those with heedfulness, not far away: 'This is what you were promised.It is for every careful penitent: those who fear the All-Merciful in the Unseen and come with a contrite heart. Enter it in peace. This is the Day of Timeless Eternity.' (Qur'an, 50:31-34)

Allah has bought from the believers their selves and their wealth in return for the Garden. They fight in the Way of Allah and they kill and are killed. It is a promise binding on Him in the Torah, the Gospel and the Qur'an and who is truer to his contract than Allah? Rejoice then in the bargain you have made. That is the great victory. (Qur'an, 9:111)

Allah has promised the men and women of the believers Gardens with rivers flowing under them, remaining in them timelessly, for ever, and fine dwellings in the Gardens of Eden. And Allah's good pleasure is even greater. That is the great victory. (Qur'an, 9:72)

But the truth is that if he is one of Those Brought Near. There is solace and sweetness and a Garden of Delight. And if he is one of the Companions of the Right. 'Peace be upon you!' from the Companions of the Right (Qur'an, 56:88-91)

These are Allah's limits. As for those who obey Allah and His Messenger, We will admit them into Gardens with rivers flowing under them, remaining in them timelessly, for ever. That is the Great Victory. (Qur'an, 4:13)

Whereas those who believe and do right actions, such people are the Companions of the Garden, remaining in it timelessly, for ever. (Qur'an, 2:82)

The forerunners—the first of the emigrants and the supporters—and those who have followed them in doing good: Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with Him. He has prepared Gardens for them with rivers flowing under them, remaining in them timelessly, for ever and ever. That is the great victory. (Qur'an, 9:100)

Those who guard against evil will be amid Gardens and Springs: (Qur'an, 15:45 )

HOW THE BELIEVERS ARE WELCOMED IN THE GARDEN

Gardens of Eden which they will enter, and all of their parents, wives and children who were righteous. Angels will enter in to welcome them from every gate: 'Peace be upon you because of your steadfastness! How wonderful is the Ultimate Abode!' (Qur'an,13:23-24)

Those the angels take in a virtuous state. They say, 'Peace be upon you! Enter the Garden for what you did.' (Qur'an,16:32)

Those who believed and did right actions will be admitted into Gardens with rivers flowing under them, remaining in them timelessly, for ever by the permission of their Lord. Their greeting there is 'Peace!' (Qur'an,14:23)

When they are given fruit there as provision, they will say, 'This is what we were given before.' But they were only given a simulation of it.

Know that the life of this world is merely a game and a diversion and ostentation and a cause of boasting among yourselves and trying to outdo one another in wealth and children: like the plant-growth after rain which delights the cultivators, but then it withers and you see it turning yellow, and then it becomes broken stubble. In the hereafter there is terrible punishment but also forgiveness from Allah and His good pleasure. The life of this world is nothing but the enjoyment of delusion. (Qur'an, 57:20)
