The Garments Of Paradise

Umm Nurah

“Allah will admit those who believe and work righteous deeds to gardens beneath which rivers flow, they shall be adorned with bracelets of gold and pearls, and their garments therein will be silk. They have been guided in this life to good speech, and they have been guided to the path of Him, the All Praised.” (Surah Al-Hajj, 22:23-24)

“For them will be gardens of eternity, rivers flowing beneath them. They will be adorned with bracelets of gold, and they will wear green garments of fine silk and heavy brocade, reclining on raised thrones. How good the reward! How beautiful a place of rest!” (Surah Al-Kahf, 18:31)

“As for the righteous, (they will be) in a position of security among gardens and springs, dressed in fine silk and in rich brocade, facing each other. And We shall join them to companions with beautiful, big and lustrous eyes.” (Surah Ad-Dukhan, 44:51-54)

“Gardens of eternity that they will enter, they will be adorned therein with bracelets of gold and pearls. Their garments will be of silk. They will say, “Praise be to Allah who has removed from us (All) sorrow, for our Lord is indeed oft –forgiving, appreciative out of His bounty. Neither toil nor sense of weariness shall touch us therein.” (Surah Al-Fatir 35:33-35)

“Upon them will be green garments of fine silk and heavy brocade. They will be adorned with bracelets of silver, and their Lord will give them a pure drink. ‘Verily, this is a reward for you, and your endeavor has been appreciated.” (Surah Al-Insan, 76:21-22)

Al Baraa’h bin ‘Azib (RA) said: “Allah’s Apostle (SAW) was given a silken garment, and its beauty and delicacy astonished the people. On that, Allah apostle (SAW) said, ‘No doubt, the handkerchiefs of Sa’ad bin Mu’adz in Paradise are better than this.” (Al-Bukhari)
