Delight upon Delight beyond Delight

The beauty and grandeur of Jannah, its magnificent outlook, its mesmerizing charm, the fantastic and fascinating sight, its serenity, miracles, the scenic aesthetics, the fragrance, the young and beautiful companions, the perpetual youth, hanging gardens with rivers flowing underneath…

The reward is summed up in one phrase Qurratu ‘Ayunقرّة أعين  Delight of the eyes, freshness of the eyes, coolness of the eyes. When all this combine, you experience comfort of the eyes. Subhanallah. 

Qurratu ‘Ayun is the source of happiness, comfort and delight.

Delight is defined as: *a strong feeling of happiness, * great pleasure or satisfaction *something that makes you very happy *something that gives you great pleasure or satisfaction.

Full Definition of DELIGHT: 1. a high degree of gratification: joy; extreme satisfaction 2. something that gives great pleasure

Our teachers tell us that human beings have five senses: sight, smell, taste. touch and hearing. In reality, we have some additional senses: the sense of balance, pressure, temperature and motion.

The dwellers of Jannah will have the privilege of having all blessings combined together. Allah will reward His believers with everything what they would like to have. They will feel good, hear good, see good, do good, touch good, smell good, eat good, drink good, and even sex good.

Describing the pleasures and rewards of Jannah is attempting to describe the indescribable!

Allah tells us in the Qur’an:

“And no soul knows what has been hidden for them of comfort for eyes as reward for what they used to do” (Surah As-Sajdah 32:17)

What exactly is that act for which Allah has reserved a hidden reward as the comfort for the eyes? What the Believers used to do in this world for which they will be given this amazing, never-even-imagined reward?

Allah tells us that:

“They arise from [their] beds; they supplicate their Lord in fear and aspiration, and from what We have provided them, they spend.” Surah As-Sajdah 32:16

Night Prayers, Sincere Supplications, and CharityThese are those great acts for which delight upon delight beyond delight is kept in reserve as a Reward.

May Allah make us worthy of such amazing rewards. May He give us the Tawfeeque to do what is expected of righteous servants.

Sal-lal-laahu-Ala Muhammad, Sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam.

Baarakallaahu Feekum.
