“Life vs Paradise”, What Are The Differences between life and Heaven
Insha Allah in this article we will discuss the main differences between life of this world and the Paradise. No reason for sadness, suffering, regret and pain.
A person can not understand and imagine what Paradise is until he goes there. Nevertheless, we can get some idea of this amazing place from the Book of the Lord – the Qoran. According to His description, life in Paradise is completely different from worldly life: another sense of existence, other pleasures … Paradise is one of two places where a person gets after death. This is a great blessing, a great reward that a person could not even dream about. In Paradise everything is perfect. Here, a person will be provided with everything that his soul desires. He will never be overtaken by need, sadness, anxiety, regret … The Almighty has prepared this blessed gift for those he is pleased with.
But what is Paradise? What are the pleasures in it? And how do they differ from the mundane?
Pure pleasure without pain and suffering
In the mundane life, a person is not deprived of pleasure, but along with them he experiences both pain and suffering, which, if you look closely, often more than pleasant moments. In Paradise, you do not need to make any effort. There will be no reason for regret and grief that did not leave us in this earthly life.
Let’s talk about some of them.
Disease and death
Another reason that makes us grieve in this life is a serious illness or the death of a loved one. In Paradise this will not happen. No one will be sick or die. The Prophet Muhammad (may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said about the people of Paradise:
“By their appearance, those who enter Paradise in the first group will be like the moon on the full moon night. In (Paradise) they will not spit, blow their nose, or defecate themselves “(Sahih Al-Bukhari).
In Paradise, no one will die. Everybody is waiting for eternal life, full of delights. As the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, those who enter the Paradise will be greeted with the words:
“Verily, always be healthy and never be sick, live and never die, be young and do not get old age, enjoy and never feel sadness and regret” (Saheeh Muslim).
A successful person in our minds is, most likely, the owner of a huge house, a chic automobile, expensive ornaments. Financial stability is seen as the key to a happy life. For many, success is inseparable from wealth, even if it is not so. Are there not enough examples when the wealthiest people ended their lives with suicide? By nature, man seeks wealth. If he fails to achieve this goal, the person embraces vexation and despair. Therefore, the Most High promises that the inhabitants of Paradise will have everything they can wish for. This also applies to those who in previous life suffered from poverty, hunger and thirst, and those who already in the earthly world knew the bounty of God, but wanted more. The Almighty says:
“They will be updated with dishes of gold and bowls. There will be what souls crave and what eyes delight. You will remain there forever. “(Quran 43:71).
‘Eat and drink to your health for what you did in the past days!’ (Quran 69:24).
“It is they who are prepared for the gardens of Eden, in which rivers flow. They will be decorated with gold bracelets and are dressed in green robes made of satin and brocade. They will sit there on their couches, leaning against them. Remarkable reward and a beautiful abode! “(Quran 18:31).
In Paradise, no one will hear a sharp or rude word. Only peace and good will come from everyone. The Most High said:
‘They will not hear there either idle talk or sinful speeches, but only words:” Peace! Peace! “(Quran 56: 25-26).
There will be no harm:
“We will wrest from their hearts anger …” (Quran 7:43).
The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:
‘There will be no disagreements between them, no hatred, their hearts will be like a single heart, and they will praise Allah in the morning and in the evening” (Sahih Al-Bukhari).
The inhabitants of Paradise will be surrounded by the best people:
“Those who obey Allah and the Messenger will be with the prophets, the truthful men, the martyrs and the righteous who were benefited by Allah. How beautiful these companions are! “(Quran 4:69).
The hearts of the inhabitants of Paradise will be pure, the speech is beautiful, the deeds are righteous. They will not have a single cause for frustration or anger.
