Blessing in the Heaven
Surah ‘An-Nisaaa’ (The Women) – Chapter – 4)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
57. And as for those who believe and do good works, We shall make them enter Gardens underneath which rivers flow – to dwell therein for ever. There for them are pure companions – and We shall make them enter plenteous shade.
57.Wallaziina ‘aamanuu wa ‘amilus-saalihaati saNud-khilu-hum Jannaatin-tajrii min- tah-tihal- ‘anhaaru khaalidiina fiihaaa ‘abadaa. Lahum fiihaaa ‘azwaajum-mutah-harah, wa Nud-khiluhum zillan zaliilaa.
After mentioning about the punishment and torment to the disbelievers (of the truth), now glad tiding of reward and retaliation for the persons who believed, has been described. It should impress on the mind that unavoidable condition with the Faith is ‘Righteous Deeds’. The words ‘amilus-saalihaati (Do good works) have been used nearly at every place in the verses of Holy Qur’an after the word ‘aamanuu (Believe) as it has been used in this verse. The same is the Truth that whose belief will be correct, his/her deeds will also be correct. How is it possible that a person has complete faith but one does not act upon it?
Jannaatin – its singular is Jannah, which means Garden (
Paradise). Garden is such
place, which is hidden by many trees. That is to say; the Garden, which has
dense fruitful trees. It is the eternal favor ( Paradise) of Allah Almighty,
which will be residence of good disposition people. Its blessings will be
evergreen and the life of the persons here will be perpetual. Neither the life
(here) will face setting of the sun, nor end. The word ‘ has been used only for
the Abadan Paradise and its blessings.
‘azwaajum-mutah-harah – (pure companions, chaste women), the word mutah-haratun is from tahara. Tahaaratun and Tahuurun have also been derived from this word, which means pure, clean and clear. Singular of ‘azwaajun is Zawjun that means a couple, a pair, a husband (or a wife). For example Zawjun-na’l (pair of shoes), like this zawj of a man is a woman. Therefore, it aims wife too.
Paradise is a great blessing. Clean
atmosphere, pure life of that place, and chaste wife or husband will be good
At the end of the verse Allah Almighty commanded that shadows of the
Paradise will be plenteous (zillan zaliilaa). That is to say,
there will never be heat of the sun, scorching sunshine and the disaster of the
warmth. On the contrary, the Believers and pious persons will find there
comfortable, joyous and easy life. They will be pleased with Allah Almighty and
He will be pleased upon them.
