“There will be their all the souls could desire, all that the eyes could delight in; and ye shall abide therein forever.”

“(Here is) a Parable of the Garden which the righteous are promised: in it are rivers of water incorruptible; rivers of milk of which the taste never changes; rivers of wine of joy to those who drink; and rivers of honey (pure and clear). In it there are for them all kinds of fruits; and Garden from their Lord.”

“No sense of fatigue shall touch them.”

In short, Heaven is the abode of supreme and eternal blissfulness, felicity and happiness. There will not be the faintest trace of pain, sorrow or distress in it. Let us now see how life in Hell will be like:

“But those, whose balance is light, will be those who have lost their souls; in Hell they will abide. The fire will burn their faces, and they will therein grin with their lips displaced.”

For the wrong-doers we have prepared a Fire whose (smoke and flames), like the walls and roof of a tent will hem them in: if they implore relief they will be granted water like melted brass, that will scald their faces.”

But those who deny (their Lord), for them will be cut out a garment of Fire; over their heads will be poured out boiling water. With it will be scalded what is within their bodies, as well as (their skins). In addition, there will be maces of iron (to punish) them. Every time they wish to get away therefore, from anguish, they will be forced back therein, and (it will be said), “Taste ye the Penalty of Burning!”

“Verily the tree of Zaqqum will be the food of the sinful, like molten brass; it will boil in their insides, like the boiling of scalding water. (A voice will cry) “Seize ye him and drag him into the midst of the Blazing Fire! Then pour over his head the Penalty of boiling water.”

“And he is given for drink boiling fetid water. In gulps will he sip it, but never will be near swallowing it down his throat: death will come to him from every quarter, yet will he not die; and in front of him will be a chastisement unrelenting.”

“Those who reject Our Signs, We shall soon cast into the Fire: as often as their skins are roasted through, We shall change them for fresh skins that they may taste the Penalty.”

But enough. Here are hundreds of verses in the Quran that tell the same story. To take now some of the Traditions of the Prophet (Peace be upon him):

“Says Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa), ‘For My faithful servants I have got ready (in Heaven) neither things no eye has seen, nor ear heard of nor the thought of which has ever crossed a human heart’.”

The delicious foods, the luscious fruit, the delightful drinks, the gorgeous clothes, the magnificent palaces, the splendid gardens, the delectable lakes, the wonderful hoors (celestial brides) and other innumerable things of divine beauty and joy that will be available in Heaven are, to be sure, known only to Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa). We, on our part, believe in them implicitly and hold them to be absolutely true.

Says another Tradition: “As the dwellers will enter Heaven a heavenly herald will proclaim, ‘Stay healthy; disease is not going to touch you here. Live forever; death does exist for you no more. Remain young;
