    Rivers of Jannah

    Jannah has four rivers; one of water, one of milk, the third of honey and one of pure wine (which does not intoxicate), streams will flow from these rivers, reaching every house. These streams do not flow below the ground level but flow above the ground. One shore of the rivers is made up of pearls and the other of rubies. The river beds are made of pure Musk. (Attargheeb Wattarheeb, vol. 4, pp. 315, Hadees 5734/35)

    The wine of Jannah is not like the wine of this world which smells terrible, bitter and intoxicates people, making them lose their senses; and then become abusive. But the wine of Paradise is free from all such faults. (Tafseer Ibn-e-Kaseer, vol. 7, pp. 289)

    Food of Jannah

    When a ‘dweller of Jannah’ eats more food, its taste would not decrease but will become tastier; each morsel would have 70 tastes and every taste is more distinctive than the last one; he will feel all these tastes together and the sense of one taste would not stop the other; the clothing of the dwellers of Jannah would not get worn out, nor would they become old. (Sahih Muslim, pp. 1521, Hadees 2836)

    The food will be delicious and of all varieties, and whatever is desired will be presented to them. (Tafseer Ibn-e-Kaseer, vol. 1, pp. 155)

    'Upon seeing a bird, if one would desire to eat its meat, its meat would be immediately fried and brought to him.’ (Attargheeb Wattarheeb, vol. 4, pp. 292, Hadees 73)

    ‘When the desire for water is there etc., jugs will appear in their hands, containing the right mixture of water, milk, wine and honey. The quantity will be exactly according to their desire, not one drop more nor one drop less and it will disappear, after drinking it.’ (Attargheeb Wattarheeb, vol. 4, pp. 290, Hadees 66)

    'All the food will be digested producing a fragrant belch and perspiration which will give out a smell like that of musk.’ (Sahih Muslim, pp. 152, Hadees 2835)

    Abundance of servants

    ‘Each dweller of Jannah (Jannati) will have a minimum of 10000 (ten thousand) servants at the head of his bed and each servant will be holding a silver bowl in one hand and a gold bowl in the other hand, and each bowl will have adornment of new colour.’ (Attargheeb Wattarheeb, vol. 4, pp. 291, Hadees 70)

    Markets of Jannah

    ‘People in Jannah do not sleep, because sleep is a form of death.’ (Al-Mu’jam-ul-Awsat, vol. 1, pp. 266, Hadees 199)

    And there is no death in Jannah, when the dwellers of Jannah enter Jannah, they shall take their places according to the virtue of their good deeds and there is no limit of Divine mercy; then permission will be granted to them to see their Rabb Azzawajal after the length of a week of this world; the Divine throne will appear and Allah Azzawajal manifest in the gardens of Jannah. Then towering pulpits of light, of pearl, of gold, of silver and gemstones made of corundum and of peridots shall be raised for the dwellers of Jannah. And the lowest of them (and there is none of them that is low) will sit upon a hill of musk and camphor, and they will not regard those upon the pulpits as having a better seating place than them; the Blessed sight of Allah Azzawajal will be as clear and apparent as the sun and the moon(on a night when it is full) is viewed by everybody from where they stand as nobody blocks another while seeing. Allah Azzawajal will descend His blessed refulgence upon everyone and will say to a one amongst them: ‘O certain person, the son of a certain person, do you remember the day when you did such and such a thing?’ And He Azzawajal will remind him of some of his sin in the world, so he will say: ‘O Rabb Azzawajal did you not forgive me?' Allah Azzawajal will reply: 'indeed! It is by the vastness of My Forgiveness that you reached this status of yours.’

    So while they are engaged in this state they shall be covered by a cloud that will shower fragrance upon them, such a fragrance whose smell they had never smelt before. And Allah Azzawajal will say: 'Go to that direction as to what I have prepared for you in your honour and take whatever you desire. Then people will go towards a market which the angels will have already surrounded it. There will also be those things what no eyes have seen the like of, nor ears have heard ever of, nor have these things ever occurred in anyone’s heart. And things will be carried to them whatever they desire. Nothing will be sold or bought in this market, and the dwellers of Jannah will meet each other in this market and the dwellers of Jannah who have a lower rank would be impressed by the garments of those dwellers of Jannah who have a higher rank. Their discussion will not come to an end until the lower ranked Jannati will presume that his clothing is better than the higher-ranked Jannati, and that is because there is no grief & sorrow for anybody in Jannah. They will then return to their houses and their wives will welcome them saying: ‘You have returned, and you have greater beauty than when you left us.’ So they will reply: ‘Today we sat in the proximity of our Lord Azzawajal and this is the reason that we have become so.’ (Sunan-ut-Tirmizi, vol. 4, pp. 246, Hadees 2558)

    ‘If Jannatees wish to meet each other, a throne of one Jannati will approach the other Jannati.’ (Attargheeb Wattarheeb, vol. 4, pp. 304, Hadees 115)

    In another narration it is stated: ‘Excellent rides and horses will be brought to Jannatees, and they will be carried on them wherever they desire. (Sunan-ut-Tirmizi, vol. 4, pp. 244, Hadees 2553)

    ‘The Jannati with the lowest rank is the one who will look at his gardens, his wives, his bounties, his servants and his thrones for the distance of a thousand years, and the noblest amongst them is that who will be (privileged) to see Allah Azzawajal Azzawajal each morning and evening.’ (Sunan-ut-Tirmizi, vol. 4, pp. 249, Hadees 2562)

    When the Jannatees enter Jannah, Allah Azzawajal will say: 'is there anything else that you want Me to provide for you?’ They will humbly say: ‘You have brightened our faces, entered us into Jannah, and granted us salvation from Hell.’ Thereafter, the veiling will be lifted which was overspread upon the creation and nothing is greater than the blessed sight of Allah Azzawajal. (Sahih Muslim, pp. 110, Hadees 181)

    If so little as what can be placed on a fingernail of what is in Heaven were to become apparent, it would have beautified all the far corners of the heavens and the earth. And if the Heavenly bracelets were to become apparent, it would have blocked out the light of the sun, as the sun conceals light of the stars.’ (Sunan-ut-Tirmizi, vol. 4, pp. 241, Hadees 2547)

    'Various palaces made of gems are in Jannah, which are clearly transparent that inside can be seen from outside and the outside can be seen from inside.’ (Attargheeb Wattarheeb, vol. 4, pp. 281, Hadees 27)

    ‘The walls of Jannah are built of bricks made of gold & silver and the mortar is of musk.’ (Majma’-uz-Zawaaid, vol. 10, pp. 732, Hadees 18642)

    'One brick of the garden of Jannah is made of gold, one brick is made of silver, the soil is saffron and its pebbles are pearls and rubies.' (Sunan Ad- Daarimi, vol. 2, pp. 429, Hadees 2821)

    'It is stated in another narration that one brick of the garden of Jannah is made of white pearl, one brick is of red ruby and one brick is of green chrylsolite, the mortar is of musk, the grass is saffron, pebbles are pearls and its soil is ambergris.' (Attargheeb Wattarheeb, vol. 4, pp. 283,Hadees 33)
