A Concise Description of Jannah and Jahannam, The Garden of Paradise and The Fire of Hell By Shaikh Abd Al Qadir Al Jilani
A CONCISE DESCRIPTION OF JANNAH AND JAHANNAM
Concerning the causes of entry into the Fire of Hell, and the causes of entry into the Garden of Paradise.
Concerning the nature of the Fire of Hell and what Allah (Almighty and Glorious is He) has prepared therein for its inhabitants, and the nature of the Garden of Paradise and what Allah (Almighty and Glorious is He) has prepared therein for its inhabitants.
On crossing the bridge of Hell and entering the Garden of Paradise, as explained by the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) in a traditional report that has been handed down to us on the authority of Abu Huraira (may Allah be well pleased with him).
Concerning the words of Allah (Almighty and Glorious is He), in which He has given us the following description of the people of the Garden of Paradise. This world is a testing ground. What happens here determines our situation in the life to come.
The end of the muhsinun (people who do good), or even of penitent wrongdoers, cannot be the same as that of unrepentant fasigun (transgressors). Were it so, it would render void the attribute of Allah (Almighty and Glorious is He) of ‘Adalah (justice).
Those who do have iman and do good must of necessity be recompensed for their za and their actions. For this, the Garden of Paradise was created. It is everything that this world is not.
The life of this world, its pains, and its pleasures is nothing more than the blink of an eye; the Garden of Paradise is everlasting. This world is transient; the next, eternal. The inhabitants of the Garden shall have whatever their hearts desire.
They will know no pain or grief and will receive that which no eye has seen, no ear has heard and which has never occurred to the mind of a human being. Ease and comfort are all that they will experience.
This is the reward the Almighty has promised to those of His believing slaves who do good. Its reason for having been created is nothing more than to amply reward those who are successful.
