Feasts of Paradise
Verse – 25 of 286, Section – 3 (Part - 1)
25. And give glad tidings (O Muhammad) unto those who believe and do good works that theirs are Gardens underneath which rivers flow. (next to last)
As often as they are regaled with food of the fruit thereof, they say: This is what was given us aforetime and it is given to them in resemblance. There
for them are pure companions and therein they abide for ever.
25. Wa bashshi-rillaziina ‘aa-manuu wa ‘amilus-Saali-haati ‘anna lahum jannaatin- tajrii min-tahtihal-‘anhaar.
Kullamaa ruziquu minhaa min-samaratir-rizqan, qaaluu haazallazii ruziqnaa min-qablu, wa ‘utuu bihii mutashaabihaa. Wa lahum fiihaaa ‘azwaa-jum-mutah-harah, wa hum fiihaa khaaliduun.
Mutah-harah – (Pure). It aims that the companions (wives/husbands) who will be favored to each person in the Paradise they will be pure and clear in all respect. They will be away from the filth of body and soul.
Khaaliduun – (For ever). They will remain in the Paradise for ever and will not come out of it.
In this verse God discussed about the rewards which will be given to the Believers and Pious persons. Usually a person needs a fine and well furnished house for living, delicious and tasteful meals for eating and drinking, pure, beautiful and pious companions, rest and comfort for ever. The person would not have any fear of ‘to be snatched’, expire of above mentioned favors. Also he/she would have faith that they will get advantages always from these things.
The God Almighty promised with the Believers like these things. The people who will believe on Oneness of God, His Angels, His Holy Books, His Prophets (Peace be upon Them), be alive again on the Day of Resurrection, good or bad luck with the direction of God and will act upon the commands of God and His last Messenger (Peace be upon Him) they will be favored with these things after their departure from this world. They will live in the beautiful gardens. For eating they will be served with different types of fruit, which by shape will be like the fruit of this world but by taste, relish and fragrance those will be much superior to this world’s fruit.
