Thinking about buying some property in this Duniya(temporary world)
Well, go ahead. Buy it.
On the other hand, has the thought ever crossed 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 are lucky enough to acquire one then it may become your permanent abode in the life hereafter.
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 or 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 ground and its soil are made up of musk and saffron. Flowing in it are 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. It has buildings that are made of bricks of gold and silver. Its roof is the Throne of the Most Merciful.
Do you still want to know more about Jannah?
Well, it has tents, each one made of a single hollowed pearl of which the length is sixty miles in the sky. There is a tree in Jannah that is so huge that if a rider of a swift horse has to cover its distance from one end to another in one hundred years, he will not be able to do so. The branches of trees are hanging low with fruits and you desire a fruit and the branch comes lower next to you and you will pluck the fruit and eat it. A fruit whose every bite is better than the previous one.
Then there are the Hoor al-‘Ayn (maidens of Jannah) to serve you. A Hoor is a most beautiful young woman with a transparent body. The marrow of her bones is visible like the interior lines of pearls and rubies. She looks like a red wine in a white glass. She is of white color, and free from the routine physical disabilities of an ordinary woman. She knows the meaning of love and has the ability to put it into practice. She speaks softly and does not raise voice at her man; she is always reconciled with him. Having been brought up in luxury, she is a luxury herself. If she looks down from her abode in Heaven onto the earth, the whole distance shall be filled with light and fragrance. When a man turns his face away from her, she will become 70 times more beautiful in his eyes. If she were to spit in the salty water of the seven oceans, then all the seven oceans would turn sweeter than honey.
The markets of Jannah will not be for buying or selling, but they will be having beautiful faces of men and women . When one desires a face, he will have it. People go there to meet their friends and relatives.
Jannah is full of numerous other bounties about which only Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala knows.
Mode of Payment
The currency to purchase Jannah is not the Dollar or the Dinar. It is also not the Rupees or the Rand and neither is it the Euro or the Yen.
The currency to purchase Jannah is only in the form of our having faith in Allah and doing good deeds as indicated in the following Aayat of the Holy Qur’an:
“Those who have Imaan and who do good deeds shall be the occupants of Jannah, where they will live forever.” (2:82).
There are many good deeds that you can do to please Allah so that He may grant you the rights to reside in your Jannah. Given below are only a few of them. You can of course covert your worldly currencies into all the good deeds that involve spending of money to gain entry into Jannah.
o Believing: Whoever believes (has Imaan) in Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala and His Messenger (Sallallahu ‘alayhi wa Sallam), and establishes the prayer and fasts in the month of Ramadan, it is incumbent upon Allah that He enters him in Jannah. (Sahih al-Bukhari)
o Being Pleased with Allah: Whoever says: “I am pleased with Allah as my Rabb, and with Islam as my Deen, and with Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘alayhi wa Sallam) as my Prophet, Jannah would be mandatory for him. (Sunan Abu Dawud)
o Building a Masjid: Whoever builds a Masjid seeking by it the Pleasure of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala, Allah will build for him a similar place in Jannah. (Sahih al-Bukhari)
o Visiting the Sick: Whoever visits an ailing person or a brother of his to seek the Pleasure of Allah, an announcer (Angel) calls out: “May you be happy, may your walking be blessed, and may you be awarded a dignified position in Jannah”. (Jami’ at-Tirmidhi)
o Seeking Knowledge: “He whosoever takes a path that leads to knowledge, Allah the Almighty will pave his way to Jannah.” (Muslim)
o Going to the Masjid: “Whosoever goes to the Masjid and returns back from it, purely for the sake of Allah, Allah the Almighty will prepare an abode in Jannah for every time he goes and comes back”. (Muslim)
o Ayatul-Qursi Recitation: “He whosoever recites the verse (2:255) after every obligatory prayer will not be forbidden to enter Jannah…” (Nasai)
o Being Good to Parents: “Paradise lies at the feet of your mother.” (Nasai) “A father’s pleasure is Allah’s pleasure, a father’s displeasure is Allah’s displeasure.” (Tirmidhi)
o Helping an Orphan: “Myself, and the person who sponsors an orphan will be in Jannah like this (and he pointed to his index and middle fingers).” (Bukhari)
o Spreading Salaams, Feeding the Hungry and Offering Tahajjud: O people, spread the Salaam (greetings), feed the hungry, and pray while the people are asleep, you will enter Jannah in peace. (Sunan ibn Majah)
o Being Lenient with People: “Allah the Almighty let a man enter Jannah because that man was easy when buying, easy when selling to others, easy when he passed a judgment and easy when he sought judgment.” (Bukhari)
o Having Sabr (Patience): “A believing slave servant of Mine will get his reward from Me upon the death of his beloved one, but such a person must show patience and perseverance for the fate of Allah Almighty, and if he does so, his reward will be Jannah.” (Ahmad)
o Integrity: “Guarantee me six things and I shall assure you of Paradise: (a) when you speak, speak the truth, (b) keep your promise (c) discharge your trust (d) guard your chastity (e) lower your gaze and (f) withhold your hands from highhandedness.” (Baihaqi)
Terms and Conditions
- If you are desirous to become the inhabitant of Jannah then you must never associate anyone with the Almighty Allah, in other words you must develop the quality of Tawheed or absolute belief in Oneness of Allah.
- The good deeds whether involving yourself, your time or your worldly currencies must be done in this world only while you are alive. Once your eyes close and your soul leaves your body you will not get even a single moment or a single opportunity to do any of these deeds.
- There is no way you can gain entry into Jannah however numerous anmd sound your good deeds may be, if you are owing anyone any money or you have usurped someone’s rights. In that case you will have to repay that person by your good deeds or his evil deeds will be transferred to your account, once you run out of good deeds.
- Some of the actions that might become barriers between you and the Jannah are given below. You must avoid them:
- Taking and giving riba (interest).
- Back biting and slandering.
- Having pride
- Earning income from haraam sources
- Consuming haraam
- Severing bonds of kinship
A Very Special Offer
Allah, Subhanahu wa Ta’ala through His Compassion has given a very special offer to the Ummah of His Beloved Nabi Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘alayhi wa Sallam) in the month of Ramadan. The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu ‘alayhi wa Sallam) said:
“Whoever draws nearer (to Allah) by performing any of the (optional or Nafl) good deeds in (this month) shall receive the same reward as performing an obligatory deed (Fardh) at any other time, and whoever discharges an obligatory deed (Fardh) in (this month) shall receive the reward of performing seventy obligations at any other time.” [Narrated by Ibn Khuzaymah].
So the month of Ramadan gives us the best opportunity to increase our balance in the book of our deeds so that paying for Jannah becomes easy for us.
Wouldn’t you like your dear ones, friends, colleagues, neighbours and every Muslim that you know to become the occupants of Jannah? If so than it is very essential that you spread the word through Da’wah as Allah says in His Qur’an Kareem:
“Call to the path of your Rabb with wisdom and beautiful counsel.” (Verse: 16:125)
In conclusion we must remember that Allah has the absolute power to decide who gains the entry into Jannah and who does not. A person might have committed many sins but one good deed of his might please Allah, the Most High, and through his immense Mercy He may grant him entry into Jannah.
Let us sincerely pray to Allah, Subhanahu wa Ta’ala, that He makes us the inhabitants of Jannah…Aameen.
…and Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala Knows Best.
