From the chapter on ‘Paradise and Its People’: Tanbih Al-Ghafileen (حركة التوحيد) :: Knowledge Mandates Action


It was said:

“Verily, in Paradise there is a huri named Lu’bah. If she were to spit into the ocean, it would purify all of its water. On her chest, there is written: ‘Whoever desires to have someone like me, then let him busy himself with obeying my Lord.'”


It was said:

“The ground in Paradise is made of silver, its dust is made of musk, the trunks of its made of gold and silver, the branches of its trees are made of pearls and gems, with its leaves and fruits growing out from them. So, whoever eats standing will not be harmed, whoever eats sitting will not be harmed, and whoever eats laying down will not be harmed, as Allah says: {“...and the bunches of fruit thereof will hang low within their reach.”} [al-Insan; 14]

That is, these fruits will be within their reach whether they are standing, sitting, or laying down.”
