The Reception Of The People Of Paradise

Umm Nurah

“And those who feared their Lord will be led to the Garden in crowds, until behold, they arrive there. Its gates will be opened, and its keepers will say, ‘Peace be upon you! Well have you done, so enter it, abiding in it eternally.” (Surah Az-Zumar, 39:73)

“Gardens of perpetual bliss – they shall enter them as well as the righteous among their fathers, their spouses, and their offspring. Angels shall enter unto them from every gate (with the salutation), ‘Peace unto you for what you endured in patience! Now, how excellent is the final home!” (Surah Ar-Raad, 13:23-24)

“But those who believed and worked righteousness will be admitted to gardens beneath which rivers flow to dwell therein forever by permission of their Lord. Their greeting therein will be, ‘Peace!” (Surah Ibrahim, 14:23)

“Their salutation on the day they met Him will be ‘Peace!’ and He has prepared for them a generous reward.” (Surah Al-Ahzab, 33:44)

Neither frivolity will they hear therein nor anything sinful – only the saying, ‘Peace! Peace!” (Surah Al-Waqi'ah, 56:25-26)

“Every fruit (enjoyment) will be there for them, and they shall have whatever they call for. ‘Peace!’ a word (of salutation) from a Lord most Merciful!” (Surah Yasin, 36:57-58)

“Certainly, those who believe and work righteousness – their Lord will guide them because of their faith. Beneath them will flow rivers in gardens of bliss. Their prayer therein will be, ‘Subhaanak Allahumma’ (Glory be to You Oh Allah!’), and their greeting therein will be, ‘Salam’ (Peace). And the last day of their prayers will be, ‘Praise be to Allah, Lord of the worlds.” (Surah Yunus, 10:9-10)
