The Rivers Of Paradise

Umm Nurah

“(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, delicious to those who drink; and rivers of honey, pure and clear. In it there are for them all kinds of fruits and forgiveness from their Lord. Can those in such bliss be compared to such as shall dwell forever in the Fire? Those whom shall be given boiling water to drink; it will be so hot that it cuts up their bowels to pieces.” (Surah Muhammad, 47:15)

“As for the righteous, they will be in the midst of gardens and rivers, in and assembly of truth, in the presence of a Sovereign Omnipotent.” (Surah Al-Qamar, 54:54-55)

“Verily, Allah will admit those who believe and do righteous deeds to gardens beneath which rivers flow. While those who reject Allah will enjoy (this world) and eat as cattle eat. The Fire will be their abode.” (Surah Muhammad, 47:12)

Abu Hurairah RA reported that the Prophet SAW said: “The Saihan, Jaihan, Euphrates and Nile are all among the rivers of Paradise.” (Muslim).
