Pure companions & regalement with food

Pure companions & regalement with food

Surah ‘Al-Baqarah (The Cow) – Chapter – 2)
Stage – 1, Verse –25b of 286, Section – 3 of 40 (Part - 1)

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

25b.  As often as they are regaled with food of the fruit thereof, they say: This is what was given us aforetime and it is given to them in resemblance. There for them are pure companions and therein they abide for ever.
25b.  Kullamaa  ruziquu  minhaa  min-samaratir-rizqan,   qaaluu  haazallazii  ruziqnaa min-qablu,  wa  ‘utuu  bihii mutashaabihaa.  Wa  lahum fiihaaa  ‘azwaa-jum-mutah-harah,  wa  hum  fiihaa  khaaliduun.


Mutah-harah – (Pure). It aims that the companions (wives/husbands) favored to every person in the Paradise, they will be pure and clean in all respect. They will be far from the filth of body and soul. 

Khaaliduun – (Forever). They will remain in the Paradise for ever and will not come out of it.

       In this verse, Allah Almighty has explained with more detail about the rewards which will be given to the Believers and Pious people. Which things are essential for living a good life, an individual desires; a fine and well furnished house, delicious and tasteful meals for eating and drinking, pure, beautiful and pious companion, rest and comfort for ever; that is to say; there must be no fear of ending and destruction of those things, which he/she possesses . Moreover, he/she would have faith that oneself will reap advantage always from these things.
       The God Almighty has promised with the Believers for the things like these i.e. the people who will believe in Oneness of God Almighty, His Prophets/Messengers and His Angels (Peace be upon Them), His Holy Scriptures, being alive again on the Day of Resurrection, good or bad luck with the direction of Allah Almighty, and will act upon His commands and the Sayings of His last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), they will be admitted in such Paradise after the life of this world, where they will live in the beautiful gardens. They will be served with such different types of fruit, which, in shape will be like the fruit of this world but by taste, relish and fragrance, those will be much superior to the fruit of this world.

       Because, the Paradise is a home of every kind of material and spiritual pleasures and comforts, therefore, it will be their fortune that their companions will be pure, clean and chaste. There, they will have never any fear that any of their pleasures or comfort will be lessened a little bit or withdrawn from them. But God Almighty will assure them that these all favors are permanent, durable and forever. They are lucky, who are rightful owners of that Paradise. Allah Almighty bless all of us with such kind of Belief.
