There are many people in this Duniya, which is our temporary abode, who own properties in varied sizes and numbers while there are many others who are always dreaming of owning such properties.
Here is a question to all such people:
Has the thought ever flashed through your mind to buy a Property in Jannah?
The properties in Jannah comprise exceptionally Vast Areas and are available for sale at amazingly Low Prices. The most significant thing, however, is that if you acquire a property in the Jannah, then it can become your Permanent Abode of that Everlasting Life!
Are you interested?
If the answer is ‘Yes’ then given below are some details about these properties and how Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala can enable you to secure the rights to own them.
Even if you use words like ‘Breath Taking’, ‘Electrifying’, ‘Mind-blowing’, ‘Overwhelming’, ‘Spectacular’, or any other adjective from the vast vocabulary of the English language to describe Jannah, you cannot give even a fraction of justice to its Splendor and Majesty.
It is something that no eye has seen, no ear has heard and no human heart has ever perceived!
The smallest Jannah is Ten Times the size of this world.
The size of the largest one is definitely Beyond the Mortal Imagination!
Its Bricks, Mortar, Pebbles and Soil
Jannah has bricks of Gold and Silver, and mortar of Fragrant Musk, pebbles of Pearl and Sapphire, and soil of Saffron…(Ahmad)
The description of the Jannah the people of Taqwa have been promised is that it has rivers of Water that never putrefies, rivers of Milk the taste of which never spoils, rivers of Wine that is extremely palatable to those who drink it and rivers of purest Honey! (Surah Muhammad: 15)
Do you still want to know more about Jannah? Well, here are some more astounding facts about Jannah.
The Pleasures of Jannah
Jannah is a place where a person will have all that he desires, and he will live a perfect and ever-lasting life. Each pleasure of Jannah will be far more superior than the comparable pleasure found in this world, and a person will be able to completely fulfill his desire with that pleasure.
“In Jannah there would be a tent made of a single hollowed pearl, the breadth of which would be sixty miles from all sides…” (Sahih Muslim)
The Characteristics of the Inhabitants of Jannah
“The inhabitants of Jannah will enter Jannah, with the Height of Adam ‘Alaihis Salaam, sixty cubits tall [a cubit is equivalent to 18 inches (457 mm), based on the length of the arm from the elbow to the tip of the middle finger], the Beauty of Yusuf Alaihis Salaam, the Age of ‘Isa ‘Alaihis Salaam and the Language of Muhammad Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam’”. (Sifatul Jannah of Imam Ibn Abid Dunya)
The Bracelets and the Garments of Jannah
In the eternal Jannah that they will enter, they will be adorned with bracelets of gold and pearls. Their garments there will be of silk. (Surah Faatir: 33)
Hoor al-‘Ayn (the Maidens of Jannah)
Hoor al-‘Ayn will be in Jannah to serve you. They will be created from Saffron. When the present creation of mankind (which is created from sand) has the best of forms and beauty, then you can imagine the beauty of women created from saffron! In beauty these women will be like Rubies and small Pearls. The comparison between the hoors and rubies is in transparency. A person can see through a ruby and know what is on the other side. In the same way, a person will be able to see through the hoors because of the cleanliness and delicate nature of their skin and body.
These women will be Pure from all external impurities such as menstruation, urine, excreta, and saliva. They will also be Free from all evil internal qualities such as malice, hypocrisy, swearing, evil character, etc. Thus, they will not have within them the smallest amount of disobedience to their husbands. There will be no jealousy between co-wives. They will all be equal in age, which will ensure that they get along with one another and make the believer’s life peaceful.
If a woman from Jannah were to look towards the world, she would fill the earth with the fragrance of Musk and [her beauty] would Overpower the light of the sun and moon (Bukhari). [The Maidens of Jannat ((Paradise) By: Moulana Abdullah Nana].
The Lads of Jannah
Lads of eternal youth will wait on them. When you see them, you will think that they are scattered pearls. (Surah Insaan: 19)
The Market of Jannah
In Jannah there is a market to which the people will come every Friday. The northern wind will blow and shower Fragrance on their Faces and Clothes and, consequently, it will enhance their Beauty and Loveliness. They will then return to their wives who will also have increased in their Beauty and Loveliness, and their families will say to them: ‘We swear by Allah that you have been increased in beauty and loveliness since leaving us.’ Thereupon they will reply: ‘We swear by Allah that you have also been increased in beauty and loveliness since we left you.’ (Muslim)
The Everlasting Bliss for the Inmates of Jannah
- (On the Day of Qiyamah Allah will say to the people of Taqwa) O my Bondsmen! (Servants) You shall have no fear today, neither will you grieve. Those who believed in Our Aayat and were obedient. You and your spouses should enter into Jannah happily. Bowls and cups of gold will be passed around between them and in Jannah there shall be whatever the heart desires and whatever pleases the eye. You will live there forever. (Surah Zukhruf: 68-71)
- Verily, the righteous (Mu’mineen) shall be enjoying bounties while looking on from couches. You will recognise the radiance of bounties on their faces. They will be given pure sealed wine to drink the seal of which is musk. It is for this that competitors should compete. Its mixture shall be of Tasneem a spring from which those close to Allah drink. (Surah Mutaffifeen: 22-28)
- When the dwellers of Jannah enter Jannah, an announcer will call: (You have a promise from Allah that) you will live therein and you will never die; you will stay healthy therein and you will never fall ill; you will stay young and you will never become old; you will be under a constant bliss and you will never feel miserable.” (Muslim)
The above hadeeth is a clear indication that the present-day chilling terms like Coronavirus, Covid-19, Quarantine, Lockdown, Curfew, Social Distancing, and many others connected with various other worldly diseases will sound totally alien in Jannah!
Jannah is full of numerous other bounties about which Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala alone knows.
