Jannat? Will they be living in families?

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

 

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Assalamialaikum!

And another question that i want to ask is, that after this life, that is the life after death, after the Day of Judgement, how will the believing people live in Jannat? Will they be living in families? Will they be able to recognise any of their relatives or spouse? Would they be able to live in Here after with there Spouse with whom they lived in this World?

 

(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

 

Answer:

 

Family life in Paradise

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Your Question: how will the believing people live in Jannat?

Dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, Allah is our witness, if one wanted to quote and explain everything that Allah and His Messenger (saws) have promised regarding the Realms of Paradise, it would require many volumes of books, and Allah is our witness, even then one would not be able to do justice to the Bliss, and the Rewards, and the Blessed Gifts that the Lord Most Gracious has promised to bestow on His believing slaves!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 32 Surah Sajdah verse 17:

No living being knows what comfort of the eyes has been kept hidden from them, as a recompense (in Paradise) for their (righteous) deeds!

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 4.467 Narrated by Abu Huraira

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "Allah, The High and Exalted He is, said, 'I have prepared for My pious slaves things (in Paradise) which have never been seen by an eye, or heard by an ear, or (even) imagined by a human being.'

 

What we can do here on our humble forum and in our humble capacity, is from the Glorious Quran give you a brief preview of that Eternal and Everlasting Blissful Abode of Paradise and the quality of life the fortunate guests of the Supreme and Majestic Lord will experience in that life for Eternity.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 78 Surah Nabaa verses 31-37:

31 Verily for the righteous there (in Paradise) will be a fulfillment of (the Heart's) desires;

32 Gardens enclosed and Grape-vines;

33 Companions of Equal Age;

34 And a Cup full (to the Brim).

35 No Vanity shall they hear therein nor Untruth

36 Recompense from thy Lord a Gift (amply) sufficient

37 (From) the Lord of the heavens and the earth and all between (Allah), The Most Gracious:

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 76 Surah Dahr verses 11-22:

11 But Allah will deliver them (the Righteous) from the evil of that Day and will shed over them a light of Beauty and a (blissful) Joy.

12 And because they were patient and constant He will reward them with a Garden and (garments of) silk.

13 Reclining in the (Garden) on raised thrones (of Dignity) they will see there neither the sun's (excessive heat) nor (the moon's) excessive cold.

14 And the shades of the (Garden) will come low over them and the bunches (of fruit) there will hang low in humility.

15 And amongst them will be passed round vessels of silver and goblets of crystal

16 Crystal-clear made of silver: they will determine the measure thereof (according to their wishes).

17 And they will be given to drink there of a Cup (of Wine) mixed with Zanjabil

18 A fountain there called Salsabil.

19 And round about them will (serve) youths of perpetual (freshness): if thou seest them thou wouldst think them scattered Pearls.

20 And when thou lookest it is there thou wilt see a Bliss and a Realm Magnificent.

21 Upon them will be green Garments of fine silk and heavy brocade and they will be adorned with Bracelets of silver; and their Lord will give to them to drink of a Wine Pure and Holy.

22 Verily this is a Reward for you and your Endeavor is accepted and recognized.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 55 Surah Rahmaan verses 46-78:

46 But for such as fear the time when they will stand before (the Tribunal of) their Lord there will be two Gardens

47 Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?

48 Containing all kinds (of trees and delights)

49 Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?

50 In them (each) will be two Springs flowing (free);

51 Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?

52 In them will be Fruits of every kind two and two.

53 Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?

54 They will recline on Carpets whose inner linings will be of rich brocade: the Fruit of the Gardens will be Near (and easy of reach).

55 Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?

56 In them will be (Maidens) Chaste restraining their glances whom no man or Jinn before them has touched

57 Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?

58 Like unto rubies and coral.

59 Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?

60 Is there any Reward for Good other than Good?

61 Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?




62 And besides these two there are two other Gardens

63 Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?

64 Dark green in color (from plentiful watering).

65 Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?

66 In them (each) will be two springs pouring forth water in continuous abundance:

67 Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?

68 In them will be Fruits and dates and pomegranates:

69 Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?

70 In them will be fair (companions) good beautiful

71 Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?

72 Companions restrained (as to their glances) in (goodly) pavilions

73 Then which of the favor of your Lord will ye deny?

74 Whom no man or Jinn before them has touched

75 Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?

76 Reclining on green Cushions and rich Carpets of beauty.

77 Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?

78 Blessed be the name of thy Lord full of Majesty Bounty and Honor.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chaper 44 Surah Dukhan verses 51-57:

51 As to the Righteous (they will be) in a position of Security

52 Among Gardens and Springs;

53 Dressed in fine silk and in rich brocade they will face each other;

54 So; and We shall Join them to Companions with beautiful big and lustrous eyes.

55 There can they call for every kind of fruit in peace and security;

56 Nor will they there taste Death except the first Death; and He will preserve them from the Penalty of the Blazing Fire

57 As a Bounty from thy Lord! That will be The Supreme Achievement!

 

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 56 Surah Waqiah verses 10-38:

10 And those Foremost (in Faith) will be Foremost (in the Hereafter).

11 These will be those Nearest to Allah:

12 In Gardens of Bliss:

13 A number of people from those of old

14 And a few from those of later times.

15 (They will be) on Thrones encrusted (with gold and precious stones).

16 Reclining on them facing each other.

17 Round about them will (serve) youths of perpetual (freshness).

18 With goblets (shining) beakers and cups (filled) out of clear-flowing fountains:

19 No after-ache will they receive therefrom nor will they suffer intoxication:

20 And with fruits any that they may select;

21 And the flesh of fowls any that they may desire.

22 And (there will be) Companions with beautiful big and lustrous eyes--

23 Like unto Pearls well-guarded.

24 A Reward for the Deeds of their past (Life).

25 No frivolity will they hear therein nor any taint of ill

26 Only the saying "Peace! Peace!"

27 The Companions of the Right Hand what will be the Companions of the Right Hand?

28 (They will be) among lote trees without thorns

29 Among Talh trees with flowers (or fruits) piled one above another

30 In shade long-extended

31 By water flowing constantly

32 And fruit in abundance

33 Whose season is not limited nor (supply) forbidden

34 And on Thrones (of Dignity) raised high.

35 We have created (their Companions) of special creation.

36 And made them virgin-pure (and undefiled)

37 Beloved (by nature) equal in age

38 For the companions of the Right Hand.

 

Allah has promised the fortunate dwellers of Paradise, whether men or women, that they will receive whatever they desire. Whatever they may ask for, no matter how small or big, will be provided for them instantly. They will be treated like honored and VVVVIP guests of the Lord of the worlds! Forever!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 50 Surah Qaaf verse 35:

There they (the men and women of Paradise) shall have all that they will desire, and We have with Us yet more for them!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 25 Surah Furqan verses 15-16:

Ask them, Is this (the Fire) better, or the Everlasting Gardens which have been promised to the God-fearing, righteous people (men and women)?. That will be the recompense of their good deeds and the final destination of their journey, wherein, they will get everything they desire, and wherein they will dwell forever. This is a promise which your Lord has taken upon Himself to fulfill.

 

In short, the fortunate people who will be rewarded Paradise by Allah Subhanah, will get an abundance of all things from their Lord Most Generous: eternal life of pleasure, gardens, wealth, properties, palaces, servants, canals of milk and honey, natural springs, abundance of food and fruits, and loving husband/wives, children, family, etc. And above all, they will get the Pleasure and Good Will of their Lord Most Supreme, Most Majestic!

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 119:

Allah will say: "This is a Day on which the Truthful will profit from their Truth: theirs are Gardens with rivers flowing beneath their eternal home: Allah well-pleased with them and they with Allah: that is the Great Salvation (the fulfillment of all desires).

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 98 Surah Al-Bayyinah verse 8:

Their reward is with Allah: Gardens of Eternity Beneath which rivers flow; They will dwell therein for ever; Allah well pleased with them and they with Him: all this for such as fear their Lord and Cherisher.

 

Your Question: Will they be living in families? Will they be able to recognise any of their relatives or spouse?

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 36 Surah Ya Seen verses 55-58:

Verily the People of the Gardens shall that Day enjoy in everything that they do; they and their wives will be in groves of (cool) shade, reclining on Thrones (of dignity). They shall have all kinds of tasteful fruits, and they shall have there, whatever they may desire. They will have been greeted with Peace, a Word (of salutation) from a Lord, Most Merciful.

 

Allah Say sin the Holy Quran Chapter 40 Surah Ghafir verses 7-9:

7 Those (Angels) who sustain the Throne (of Allah) and those around it sing Glory and Praise to their Lord; believe in Him; and implore forgiveness for those who believe: "O Our Lord! Thy reach is over all things in Mercy and Knowledge. Forgive then those who turn in repentance and follow Thy Path: and preserve them from the Penalty of the Blazing Fire!

8 "And grant O our Lord! That they enter the Gardens of Eternity which Thou hast promised to them and to the righteous among their fathers their wives and their posterity! For Thou art (He) the Exalted in Might Full of Wisdom.

9 "And preserve them from (all) ills; and any whom thou dost preserve from ills that Day on them wilt Thou have bestowed Mercy indeed: and that will be truly (for them) the Highest Achievement!

 

Not only will Allah Subhanah re-unite the members of ones family from amongst their righteous wives, and parents, and children in those Eternal Gardens of Bliss; but the fortunate and honored dwellers of Paradise will remember and recognize every one they associated with on this earth! They will even remember and, if they wish, be shown the reality of the arrogant and unrighteous acquaintances and friends who belied the Truth on earth, and who will be humiliated, disgraced, and tortured in the Fire of Hell!

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 37 Surah Saafaat verses 40-61:

40 But the sincere (and devoted) Servants of Allah

41 For them is a Sustenance Determined

42 Fruits (Delights) and they (shall enjoy) honor and dignity.

43 In Gardens of Felicity.

44 Facing each other on Thrones (of Dignity):

45 Round will be passed to them a Cup from a clear-flowing fountain

46 Crystal-white of a taste delicious to those who drink (thereof)

47 Free from headiness; nor will they suffer intoxication therefrom.

48 And beside them will be chaste women; restraining their glances with big eyes (of wonder and beauty).

49 As if they were (delicate) eggs closely guarded.

50 Then they will turn to one another and question one another.

51 One of them will start the talk and say: "I had an intimate companion (on the earth)

52 "Who used to say `What! Art thou amongst those who bear witness to the truth (of the Message)?

53 `When we die and become dust and bones shall we indeed receive rewards and punishments?' "

54 (A voice) will say: "Would ye like to look down?"

55 He will look down and see him in the midst of the Fire.

56 He will say: "By Allah! Thou wast little short of bringing me to perdition!

57 "Had it not been for the Grace of my Lord I should certainly have been among those brought (there)!

58 "Is it (the case) that we shall not die

59 "Except our first death and that we shall not be punished?"

60 Verily this is the supreme achievement!

61 For the like of this let all strive who wish to strive.

 

 

Your Question: Would they be able to live in Hereafter with there Spouse with whom they lived in this World?

If both the husband and the wife were righteous and awarded Paradise by the Mercy and Grace of their Lord, the Lord Most Gracious will re-unite them again in Paradise to live with each other in Honor, and Dignity, and Abundance forever!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 36 Surah Ya Seen verses 55-58:

Verily the People of the Gardens shall that Day enjoy in everything that they do; they and their wives will be in groves of (cool) shade, reclining on Thrones (of dignity). They shall have all kinds of tasteful fruits, and they shall have there, whatever they may desire. They will have been greeted with Peace, a Word (of salutation) from a Lord, Most Merciful.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

Burhan
