Heaven is quality. Our Prophet (saas) was very classy. Quality reigned in the time of the Companions of our Prophet (saas). THE QUR’AN DEMANDS QUALITY FROM US and the heart of a Muslim sides with quality. We must attach great importance to quality. Quality in outerwear, in the style we employ and everything else.
There is a search for quality in the human nature. Quality is what is commanded in the Qur'an. The Paradise for instance is a very high quality place. There is the rule of quality in every corner. The clothes are high quality, the beds are high quality, houses are high quality, people are high quality, everywhere is high quality.
They misrepresent Islam as such an intricate, such a difficult and hard religion and they show the understanding of quality in Muslims'lives as such a sheepish, such a deficient life that it seems like –may Allah forbid- a living Hell to people. Why do you not present Islam like Paradise as it actually is, why do you not present an ambiance like that of Paradise, a manner like reminds Paradise?
Never leaving love by no manner of means is a characteristic of Paradise. That is because love is never left aside in the Paradise. In paradise love will never be left aside for all eternity. That is the greatest blessing. That is the greatest beauty. Otherwise Paradise will not have a meaning without love. Because we love Allah, we will love everything in the Paradise.
This world is not the real place for us. No one should attempt to get attached to this world. This is a place of trial. One says; "My eyebrows are not nice, my eyes are not nice enough." You are here to be tested, of course some things are supposed to be not enough. Would Almighty Allah make them perfect? One says; "My nose is curved." Your nose would be perfect in the Heaven. It might be curved here. One says; "I am cold." You won't be cold in the Heaven.
Birthdays will be much different in the Heaven than it is in this world. Eighty quadrillionth birthday, ninety quadrillionth birthday will be celebrated. It will not be like the birthdays in this world. That is because time will be endless in the Heaven. I mean a hundred quadrillion years will pass by and it will be like it has never started yet. Endlessness is immense. Yet here in this world seventy years pass by as if they were only seventy hours. Life in this world comes to an end in a moment's time.
Those who will go to Heaven will enter the Heaven; the abode of pleasure and beauty, how nice this is. Those who enjoy love, those who enjoy affection, those who enjoy goodness, those who enjoy kind words will constantly see beauties. The Heaven is like light, it is the abode of pleasure, the abode of beauties.
There are many animals in the Heaven, there are all sorts of animals. They all will be speaking, they all will be intelligent. We will feel love to our hearts' content. All the animals we love will be there. All the animals that we miss, all the animals that we have had in our minds in our childhood, they are all there, insha'Allah.
Allah is the One Who makes us listen to the music. Allah is the One Who makes us enjoy it. We could have heard the music and be terrified. Yet we enjoy music. Allah is the One Who creates it and Allah is the One Who gives us that pleasure through it. In the Heaven there is the most beautiful form of music.
There is no violence or terror in Islam. There is love, mercy and friendship in Islam. Why does Allah give Heaven to us? Had Allah asked for terror, He would have given that in the Heaven as well. Allah wants love, compassion, peace and security. Allah tells us to greet each other with “salam.” What does “salam” mean? It means wishing safety and wellbeing.
Allah created Heaven fully adorned. Allah created humans fully adorned. Adornments are the wealth of this world; they are the artistry of Allah. Some people have assumed an attitude against ornaments. What are eyebrows? They are adornments. What are eyes? They are adornments. What is nose? It is an adornment. Trees, flowers are adornments. Allah creates all animals fully adorned. All birds are fully adorned, they are colorful. All bugs are fully adorned, they are colorful. Bees, ants are all fully adorned. All the women in the Heaven are fully adorned. Allah praises their adornments in length in the Qur’an. Why should adornments be unlawful.
Heaven will have a meaning for you when you are properly trained for it. You should be well trained so that you would fall in love and when you go to Heaven in love, it would have a meaning for you. You should learn to enjoy precious furniture, valuable goods, beautiful people, beautiful trees, beautiful perfumes, beautiful fruits here in this world so that you would be able to enjoy them there in the Heaven as the Manifestations of Allah.
There cannot be a world without women, there cannot be a Heaven without women. The world is beautiful with women. Heaven is beautiful with women as well. Women are the most beautiful creatures of this world. And the most beautiful being in the Heaven, I mean except for God, is woman as the manifestation of God's beauty insha'Allah.
Heaven is very similar to this world but it is much more modern and high quality. The mansions in the Heaven are made of glass and they remain up in the air. When you say "come" to the food in the Heaven, they come by you. God creates millions of details for people to take pleasure. But the beauty that gives most pleasure in the Heaven is God Himself manifesting and greeting the people of the Heaven.
God bestows bad-tempered, grumpy, snappish people whom everyone hates upon those people with darkened hearts. And He bestows loving, radiant people whose hearts are full of love and compassion to Muslims, to people with beautiful manners, to people who love others. That is how it is in this world and that is how it will be in the Heaven.
We are in a very short course, it really is very short. We are being trained day and night and we are improving ourselves, we are taking the civility of the Heaven. Without the civility of the Heaven if were to go to the Heaven we would have been like robots. We have to get that training in order to be able to take endless pleasure in the Heaven.
A Muslim should see the beautiful things and also the ugly ones; yet he should prefer the beautiful things and look for the wisdom behind the ugliness. There is nothing ugly in the Heaven. Ugliness is only created in this world for testing. Everything and everyone is beautiful in the Heaven; trees, plants, people, children and all food.
The Heaven is an abode of joy and it is eternal happiness, eternal beauty. When you are sending your child to the Hereafter you are actually sending your child to an abode that everything is perfect, so mourning would be extremely wrong while doing so. It would mean to say; -may God forbid- “I didn’t like what God wanted, I know better”. And that would be ascribing partners to God.
A Muslim lives for the good pleasure of God and he dies for the good pleasure of God. If one does not live for the good pleasure of God, life would turn into a living hell for him/her. Everything should be for the good pleasure of God; only then life would be beautiful. Heaven would be beautiful with the good pleasure of God as well.
If one feels frantic with sorrow for a person who's gone to the Sight of God, who's gone to His Heaven; if one cries his eyes out grieving that means he doesn't appreciate what God created; that means he is rebellious against God, may God forbid. But if he thanks God for what He created, if he praises Him, if he welcomes this ultimate union, his meeting His Lord with joy, if he welcomes passing to Heaven; that is a characteristic of a Muslim. The other is the characteristic of idolaters.
This world is not real, the Hereafter is because this world is a place of trial, it possesses the characteristics of both Heaven and Hell. But Muslims push aside those characteristics of Hell by using their wisdom. And because they thus bring forth the characteristics of Heaven, they appear as exquisite beings.
One says, “I have lived a very happy life, I have never faced any troubles all my life.” That is not a gain. First of all he won’t go to Heaven. In the Qur’an God says; “Or did you suppose that you would enter the Garden without facing the same as those who came before you?” (Surat Al-Baqara, 214) A Muslim should strive on the path of God, face difficulties and make an effort against unbelief, against the hypocrites.
One doesn’t suffer in the path of God, he doesn’t suffer through ordeals or face any difficulty yet he says, “I am ready for Heaven.” You cannot go to Heaven. Do you know what you are? That means, may God forbid, you are a human being created in the form of a man with a beautiful appearance yet without soul. It is impossible for them to go to Heaven. These are created as a special intermediary form for this world.
Some people say, “What if God did not create pain?” Well then you would be obtuse. Let us say that you have gone by the river in Heaven; you would simply look at it with vain eyes. But if you have suffered through ordeals, you would kiss each and every single one of the pebble stones in Heaven numerous times. Almighty God gives people a lengthy life and makes them experience these ordeals because it is crucial. After that people people return to normal.
A Muslim should never say, "I have performed my prayers, so I will be able to go to Heaven and that would be enough for me." A Muslim should want his rank to be high in Heaven. There are different ranks, Muslims are in a competition with each other. They should want to reach higher and higher. And there is no end to it; how nice this is.
The thing that the people of Heaven take the greatest joy in their faith in God, their love in God and God's manifesting Himself. That is what they take the greatest pleasure from. Otherwise it is not only the gardens, the tables of Heaven. What they enjoy the most in the Heaven is their love for God and God's manifesting Himself. That is how it is in this world as well.
A house eventually keeps you warm, prevents you from feeling cold. That is your prison; your prison in this world. If you look at things in the light of faith, your house would be like a house of Heaven. But if you look at things in the light of unbelief, your home would be like one of those cells in the Hell; it troubles you, the walls close in on you, it bothers you all around and makes you suffocate.
Love is the goal of the Paradise. Let us imagine that one goes to Paradise. Let us assume that there are rivers, fruit trees, mansions; there are vineyards and gardens, there are people, but there is no love. What would such a place be? May God forbid, that would be Hell. It will be Paradise only with love.
God will manifest Himself to the people of Heaven whenever He likes. In an account it is stated that "He will manifest Himself on Fridays" but it is clearly understood from other accounts that He will frequently manifest Himself. And it is stated that this is the one blessing that Muslims would enjoy the most in the Heaven.
There are constant negatives and positives in this world. For instance, night and day, good and bad, beautiful smells and bad smells, good food and bad food, fear and trust; everything is created with its opposite. But that is not the case in Heaven. So everything will be one -sided and everything will be positive.
There is no patience in Heaven, there is no courage, there is no reason to be courageous. You cannot be patient, courageous, brave. There is nothing to resign one's self to. Purity, self-sacrifice, none of those exist in Heaven. It is the abode of fun. Of course there is being thankful and praising, there is seeing the Manifestations of God and loving.
The world has no aspect to enjoy things. That is because Heaven is the place to enjoy. Why should people settle for the inadequate pleasures of this world? They carry a ton of wood on their shoulders and then say, "Let us go have fun." That ton of wood on their shoulders will be lifted in the Heaven. You can then have fun. There are various hardships all around this world.
God says that, "This world is not the place for play and idle sport. The Heaven is the place for play and idle sport. This world is a place for trial." That is why if you fasten yourself to this world, you would be stuck with it, says God. But if you aim for the Hereafter, if you aim My approval, I will make you happy for all eternity, you will have fun and laugh. Those who fasten themselves to this world would merely grovel, let me say that much. They would merely wallow and flounder. Nothing else would ever happen.
Radicals have always been obsessed about the marriages of our Prophet (saas), his love for women. They never want to recite or talk about the verses related with that subject. They merely want to gloss over that subject completely. For instance, they do not want to talk about the fact that there are women in the Heaven.
Something happens and we act patiently. But we also reinforce our patience phase by phase. What is this, then? This is education. An education for what? An education for Heaven. God chooses a handful of Muslims and educates them here. When they are directly put in Heaven, what happened to the Prophet Adam (pbuh) happens. It doesn't work that way, that is to say. With the education given the mind settles, the personality develops and one starts appreciating the blessings of God.
Some people never accept patience and ordeals, yet ask directly for blessings. That is unacceptable. You can neither attain Heaven like that nor attain the good pleasure of God. This is a place of trial not a place of fun. Almighty God says, "If We had desired to have some amusement, We would have derived it from Our Presence, but We did not do that." Heaven is the place of amusement, there is no such thing in this world.
