The Bounty Of The People Of Paradise

Umm Nurah

“But after them (i.e. prophets and righteous believers) there followed a posterity who neglected prayer and followed after lusts. Soon, then, will they face destruction, except those who repent, believe and work righteousness. These will enter the Garden and will not be wronged in the least - gardens of eternity, those which (Allah), Most Merciful, has promised to His servants in the Unseen. His promise must come to pass. They will not hear therein any vain discourse, but only salutation of peace. They will have therein their sustenance, morning and evening. Such is the Garden which We give as an inheritance for those of Our servants who are God fearing.” (Surah Maryam, 19:59-63)

“He that works evil will not be requited but by the like thereof. And he that works a righteous deed – whether male or female, and is a believer – such will enter the Garden. Therein they will have provision without measure.” (Surah Ghafir, 40:40)

“But give glad tidings to those who believe and work righteousness, that they will have gardens beneath which rivers flow. Every time they are provided with fruits there from, they say, ‘Why? This is what we were provided with before,’ for they are given things in resemblance. They have therein pure companions, and they abide therein forever.” (Surah Al-Baqarah, 2:25)

“But the sincere (and devoted) servants of Allah, for them are a sustenance determined fruits (delights) and, they shall be honored in gardens of felicity.” (Surah Al-Safaat, 37:40-43)

“That is what you are promised for the Day of Account! Truly, such will be Our bounty (to you). It will never cease.” (Surah Sad, 38:53-54).
