The Evidence for a Physical Paradise.

By brother Abdullah Smith

  

www.answering-christianity.com/blog/index.php/topic,1462.msg5590.html#msg5590.  Heaven is physical in the Bible, and also has sex in it [2].

Also, Jesus in Matthew 17, below, said that all of the believers will have 100 times the wives, harems, sisters and brothers in Heaven!

  

  

 

 

Does the Islamic Paradise really contradict the Bible's Paradise?  Will there be physical pleasures in Heaven?

The sections of this article are:

1-  The Creation of Adam and Eve in Heaven!
2-  The Christians' beliefs regarding Heaven.

      (a)-  Ample New Testament Verses regarding the Physical Heaven.

3-  Open Challenge to Christians.
4-  Conclusion.

  

Note of contradiction:  Below you will see how the NT said that Heaven has no marriage in it, while Genesis called Eve a "wife" and our "mother".

More and more we hear of ignorance from Christians who criticize Islam for claiming that Paradise will have physical pleasures in it similar to the ones that we have here on earth.  Personally, I've heard cheap comments before about the 70 Houris for men in Heaven and how the Prophet, peace be upon him, "promised horny desert men" sex in Paradise.

Bashing is easy, and believe me, nothing is easier than bashing the gospel of porn bible for claiming that women's vaginas and breasts taste like "wine", and that sisters can look lustfully at their biological brothers and wish to have sex with them in bed.  All of the quotes from the gospel of porn are locate at:  X-Rated Pornography in the Bible.

Note:  The exact number of 70 Houris is not mentioned in the Noble Quran.  It is only mentioned in the Hadiths (collections of the Sayings of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him).  But Houris were mentioned in the Noble Quran.  So the number is most likely true, even though the Hadiths were collected centuries after the natural death of the Prophet.  In other words, the possibility of the Hadith being corrupt (most of the Bible is mostly corrupt), is slim because the Noble Quran supports the narration by mentioning the Houris as shown at the end of the article.  Please visit:  What parts of the Hadiths and Bible do Muslims believe are closest to the Truth, and Why?

Now having said all of that, let us now get technical here.  The answer to the questions above is quite simple and requires no 50-page lengthy article to prove it. 

  

  

1-  The Creation of Adam and Eve in Heaven!

Before we begin, I'd like to describe what the Garden of Eden is according to Islam and the Bible:

In Islam:

Narrated Abdullah bin Qais: "Allah's Apostle said, "Two gardens, the utensils and the contents of which are of silver, and two other gardens, the utensils and contents of which are of gold. And nothing will prevent the people who will be in the Garden of Eden from seeing their Lord except the curtain of Majesty over His Face.(Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Volume 6, Book 60, Number 401)"

Narrated 'Abdullah bin Qais: "The Prophet said, "(There will be) two Paradises of silver and all the utensils and whatever is therein (will be of silver); and two Paradises of gold, and its utensils and whatever therein (will be of gold), and there will be nothing to prevent the people from seeing their Lord except the Cover of Majesty over His Face in the Paradise of Eden (eternal bliss)."   (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 93, Number 536)"

To see the details of Heaven in the Noble Quran, please visit:

Would you describe Heaven and Hell in Islam?


In the Bible:

The Bible makes it clear that Heaven is a physical place:

Jesus in Luke 24:51 was taken up to Heaven in his physical body.

Also, when GOD Almighty created Adam, peace be upon him, in the Garden of Eden (one of the Gardens of Heaven), He created him in our physical form today:

Genesis 2:7-9
7 the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
8 Now the LORD God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed.
9 And the LORD God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Genesis 2:14-16
14 The name of the third river is the Tigris; it runs along the east side of Asshur. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.
15 The LORD God
took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.
16 And the LORD God commanded the man, "You are free to eat from any tree in the garden;

The earth that we are living on today is the worst and lowest land that GOD Almighty Created.  It is called the waste land, and it is the punishment that Adam and Eve received when they disobeyed GOD Almighty:

Genesis 3:22-24
22 And the LORD God said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever."
23 So the LORD God
banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken.
24 After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.

Isaiah 51:3
3 The LORD will surely comfort Zion and will look with compassion on all her ruins; he will make her deserts like Eden, her wastelands like the garden of the LORD. Joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and the sound of singing.

Ezekiel 28:13
13 You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone adorned you: ruby, topaz and emerald, chrysolite, onyx and jasper, sapphire, turquoise and beryl. Your settings and mountings were made of gold; on the day you were created they were prepared.

Ezekiel 31:9
9 I made it beautiful with abundant branches, the envy of all the trees of Eden in the garden of God.

Joel 2:3
3 Before them fire devours, behind them a flame blazes. Before them the land is like the garden of Eden, behind them, a desert waste— nothing escapes them.


Several important points to notice:

1-  Eden is a vast Heaven (as also shown in the verses below).  Adam and Eve initially existed in a Garden that existed in the Heaven of Eden, which is why it was later called the "Garden of Eden"

2-  Notice how GOD Almighty literally took Adam and placed him in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 2:15) and then banished him and his "wife" (see Genesis 3:17, Genesis 3:20 below) out of it into the waste land, earth (Genesis 3:23, Ezekiel 28:13, Joel 2:3).

3-  The names of the rivers such as Tigris and Euphrates don't mean that these are the same rivers that we have here on earth, in Iraq today!  It is quite possible that Adam named several earthly places on earth the same as Heavenly ones to keep the good memories of the Blessed Days alive.   There is a city in Yemen today called "Eden".  Yemen as a land and its city of Eden are far from being a place like Paradise.  As we further see in the following verses, Eden was called the "Garden/Heaven of GOD" while earth was called "waste land"

4-  The book of Genesis is not original.  It is a rewrite and it also had been tampered with.  While it is similar to the Islamic Accounts regarding Adam, Eve and Heaven, but only the Noble Quran and the Islamic Claims are original and truly Divine.  See the Bible's own theologians' comments regarding the corruption of the book of Genesis.

  

Further proofs from Wikipedia Encyclopedia:

Also, from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garden_of_Eden:

"In the tale the garden is planted "in" Eden, and accordingly "Eden" properly denotes the larger territory which contains the garden rather than being the name of the garden itself: it is, thus, the garden located in Eden."

  

As we clearly see above:

Eden was called the Garden/Heaven of GOD!

Our Earth was called a "waste land"!

 

After GOD Almighty finished Creating Adam, He decided to create a mate for him.   GOD Almighty literally took Adam's rib (which proves that Adam had a physical body) and created Eve, peace be upon her, from it.  There is no question that Adam  and Eve had physical bodies that even had genitals in them too!  The proof for this is simply our bodies today, and the purpose of our genitals is to enable us to "multiply" (Genesis 8:17, Genesis 9:7).  That is why GOD Almighty Created a male and a female.  I wonder how Adam and Eve were supposed to "multiply" if they didn't have genitals.

Now before I go any further, let me raise the following questions:

1-  Why did GOD Almighty Create genitals for Adam and Eve in Heaven?

2-  Why did GOD Almighty, from the first place, create male and female in Heaven?

The answer is simple and its given above:  To multiply!


Later on after Eve was created, we are taught that she ate the forbidden fruit after she got tempted by the devil, which caused both Adam and Eve to be kicked out of Heaven.   Now, let me raise the following questions:

1-  Did Adam and Eve have sex during the days before they got kicked out of Heaven?  If not, then why not?   Wasn't she created to be his mate?  Did they not then have physical contact with each others for the, perhaps, long years that they lived with each others in Heaven before getting kicked out of it?

Genesis 3:17
To Adam he said, "Because you listened to your wife and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, 'You must not eat of it,' "Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat of it all the days of your life.

Genesis 3:20
Adam named his wife Eve, because she would become the mother of all the living.

These verses called Eve a "wife" and a "mother".  Now assuming that Adam and Eve never got kicked out of Heaven, then how would exactly Eve become a "mother", who already was a "wife" in Heaven?

 

Wouldn't it be through sexual intercourse with Adam that would eventually lead to impregnation?

 

Also, the fact that Eve was Adam's "wife" in Heaven and was meant to be eventually the "mother of all the living", then there is no doubt that Adam and Eve did consummate (have sex) in Heaven!  Otherwise, how exactly was Eve a "wife" to Adam?  What do husbands and wives do?

The Evidence for a Physical Paradise.

By brother Abdullah Smith

  
www.answering-christianity.com/blog/index.php/topic,1462.msg5590.html#msg5590.  Heaven is physical in the Bible, and also has sex in it [2].

  

Proofs from the Talmud:

The following Talmudic quote was sent to me by brother Mahir; may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him.

"Garden on Eden has two gates of ruby, by which stand SIXTY varieties of pure servants. The luster of the face of each of them glistens like the splendor of the firmament. When a righteous man arrives, they remove his clothes in which he had been buried.."  (Yalkut Shimoni, Bereshit 20)

Now while Christians don't believe in the Jewish Talmud, but this verse still serves as an indisputable proof that Heaven in the Bible can be interpreted to be a physical place similar to our life here on earth, as this article also thoroughly proves from the Bible's Old and New Testaments.  We also must not forget that much of the Apocryphas, which many Bibles do contain [1], originate from the Talmud and other Rabbinic sources.  So Christians don't really have a strong support when they brush this verse aside, because much of their own bible comes from Apocryphal sources and Jesus himself in the New Testament even quoted Apocryphas.

And it goes without saying that this quote certainly silences any Jew who mocks Islam on the point of the Virgins for the Believers in Heaven.
 

Notes:

1-  The Bibles differ in their books and gospels [1] [2] [3] [4] [5].

 

Proofs from our Days VS GOD Almighty's Days:

We are told in the Bible that 1 day from GOD Almighty is equivalent to 1,000 days of ours:

Psalm 90:3-5
3 You turn men back to dust, saying, "Return to dust, O sons of men."
4 For a thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night.
5 You sweep men away in the sleep of death; they are like the new grass of the morning-

2 Peter 3:7-9
7 By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.
8 But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.
9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

In Islam, we have the same thing but in a Divine Scientific Miracle in the Noble Quran, which defined the speed of light (1) [2] for us.

So if a day on earth is determined by the earth completing a full rotation around the sun, and if the day in Heaven is approximately 1,000 human-years of our human-reckoning, then this means that the Heaven also completes some sort of a "rotation" around a "sun", which takes approximately 1,000 earth-years to complete.

If Heaven is nothing but spiritual and has no physical life in it, then it certainly would not have any days in it, since a day is something physical that is seen by the human-eye and is reckoned by human-time.
 

 


2-  Since GOD Almighty Created love and sexuality, and Adam and Even certainly had genitals in Heaven, and they loved each others, and they were a husband and a wife, then give me one logical reason why they couldn't have possibly had sex in Heaven!


So now that we established that sex did actually occur in the "Bible's" Heaven, or to say the least, it was not sinful at all, and that it was GOD Almighty's intent to have it exist in Heaven, then let us now move on to the ridiculous contradictions that the man-altered and man-corrupted (according to the bible's theologians) New Testament have created among its followers, the Christians.

  

  

2-  The Christians' beliefs regarding Heaven:

Christians believe that we will be like "spirits" or "Angels" in Heaven without physical bodies.  They believe that once a "Christian" dies, then he/she will go and live with GOD Almighty as a spirit in Heaven:

Matthew 22:29-30
29. Jesus replied, "You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God.
30. At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.

Obviously this contradicts the very teachings of their very own Bible about Adam and Eve having physical bodies in Heaven and that they had sex (they were a husband and wife).

 

If we will not marry in Heaven, then why was Eve called a "Wife" in the Genesis verses above?

Wife, marriage, hello??

 

Again, Jesus in Luke 24:51 was taken up to Heaven in his physical body.

  

 

(a)-  Ample New Testament Verses regarding the Physical Heaven:

The following verses in the table were sent to me by a Muslim sister, may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him.

  

Al salamu Alikum wa rahmatu Allah wa barakato

Dear, Osama Abdullah

I have collected some biblical verses about the physical pleasure in heaven and physical torture in hell , I hope you like them and include them in your article.

  
Punishment of the infidel will be a physical punishment:

Revelation 19
19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

Matthew 5
28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

Mark 9
47 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.

Luke 13
28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.

Matthew 10
28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

  

As for heaven:

1-  People will have body flesh and bone not only a soul and believers will see God.

Job 19:26 -27
26 And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God;
27 I myself will see himwith my own eyes—I, and not another. How my heart yearns within me!

26 And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:
27 Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.

Matthew 19
12 For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.

Mathew 17
28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake,
shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.

  

How many houses, wives, harems, brothers and sisters will the hundredfold consist of in Heaven?

  

Back in Jesus' days, "houses" consisted of wives, harems, children, parents and the husband/master.

  

2-  Drinking alcohol in the kingdom of God.

Matthew 26:29
29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.

  

3-  Eating bread in the kingdom of God.

Luke 14
15 And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God.

Luke 22
15 And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:
16 For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.

  

4-  Eating and drinking at the table of Christ.

Luke 22
30 That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel- meeting the prophets in the kingdom of God.

Matthew 8
1 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.

  
Jesus replied on the sadducees who didn't believe in the resurrection of the body:
Matthew 22
29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.

So Jesus reminded them that God who has created them.  Also, according to the bible, angles eat, drink and get married:

Genesis 18
8 And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat.

So God and his angles had eaten food at Abram house!

Genesis 6
2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

Sons of God are the angles.  The same story is mentioned in the book of Enoch, where Judas mentioned clearly that the angles got married.  And since the Angels are familiar with marriage, then it should be normal for them to have current wives in Heaven.

Jazak Allah khair

  

The man-made contradictions and garbage in the Bible are sound and clear!

Now if Eve was not a "wife" to Adam, then how exactly was she supposed to be our "mother"?   Was she Adam's girlfriend?  Aren't fornication and adultery considered a sin in the Eyes of GOD Almighty?  And even if Adam and Eve never had sex, which is a ridiculous theory given the evidence above, the fact that they had physical bodies (Eve was created from Adam's rib) in Heaven soundly refutes the lies that were told in the New Testament about us being only spirits in Heaven!

Briefly, let us look at what GOD Almighty Said in the Noble Quran about the human-Believers in Heaven:

"They will recline (with ease) On Thrones (of dignity) Arranged in ranks; And We shall join them To Companions, with beautiful Big and lustrous eyes.  And those who believe And whose families follow Them in Faith -- to them Shall We join their families:  Nor shall We deprive them (Of the fruit) of aught Of their works:  (Yet) is each individual In pledge for his deeds.   (The Noble Quran, 52:20-21)"

"For them will be a Home Of Peace in the presence Of their Lord: He will be Their Friend, because They practised (righteousness).  (The Noble Quran, 6:127)"

"And We shall remove from their hearts any lurking sense of injury;- beneath them will be rivers flowing;- and they shall say: 'Praise be to God, who hath guided us to this (felicity): never could we have found guidance, had it not been for the guidance of God: indeed it was the truth, that the apostles of our Lord brought unto us.' And they shall hear the cry: 'Behold! the garden before you! Ye have been made its inheritors, for your deeds (of righteousness).'  (The Noble Quran, 7:43)"

"And they will say: 'Praise be to Allah, Who has removed from us (All) sorrow: for our Lord Is indeed Oft-Forgiving Ready to appreciate (service).  (The Noble Quran, 35:34)"

"But it is for those Who fear their Lord, That lofty mansions, One above another, Have been built: Beneath them flow Rivers (of delight): (such is) The promise of Allah: Never doth Allah fail in (His) promise.  (The Noble Quran, 39:20)"

"But those who believe And work deeds of righteousness -- To them shall We give A Home in Heaven -- Lofty mansions beneath which Flow rivers -- to dwell therein For aye -- an excellent reward For those who do (good)! -- Those who preserve in patience, And put their trust In their Lord and Cherisher.  (The Noble Quran, 29:58-59)"

"And We shall bestow On them, of fruit and meat, Anything they shall desire.  (The Noble Quran, 52:22)"

"(To them will be said:) 'Eat and drink ye, With profit and health, Because of your (good) deeds.  (The Noble Quran, 52:19)"

"Therein will they Recline (at ease):  Therein can they Call (at pleasure) For fruit in abundance, And (delicious) drink;  (The Noble Quran, 38:51)"

"(Here is) a Parable of the Garden which the righteous are promised: in it are rivers of water incorruptible; rivers of milk of which the taste never changes; rivers of wine, a joy to those who drink; and rivers of honey pure and clear. In it there are for them all kinds of fruits; and Grace from their Lord. (Can those in such Bliss) be compared to such as shall dwell for ever in the Fire, and be  given, to drink, boiling water, so that it cuts up their bowels (to pieces)?   (The Noble Quran, 47:15)"

(http://www.answering-christianity.com/heaven_hell.htm)

  

  

3-  Open challenge to Christians:

If Heaven has no physical bodies in it, then where did Adam's rib come from which GOD Almighty used for creating Eve?  And what form were Adam and his "wife" Eve in?  Did they have physical bodies?

If you're answer is yes they had physical bodies, then my mission is accomplished in this article.  And to those who have bashing-mouths in regards to Islam promising men (who will live like kings) 70 Houris in Heaven, along with other pleasures and Mansions, I think this article will shut their mouths up once and for all, insha'Allah (if Allah Almighty is Willing).

Again, please visit: The Evidence for a Physical Paradise.

Again, Jesus in Luke 24:51 was taken up to Heaven in his physical body.

And by the way, regarding the 70 Houris are 70 servants, they may not necessarily all be for 'sex'.  But whether they are or not, that's completely irrelevant, because sex did and does and will always do exist Heaven!

 

Also, Out of the Entire Noble Quran, only five Noble Verses talked about the Houris, and in only referencing them (only mentioning them by the name).


So don't think that Islam brags about sex and lust in the Noble Quran!


It is only the gospel of porn bible that brags about women's privates and calls their vaginas and breasts taste like "wine".

  

  

4-  Conclusion:

Again and again, the Christians' man-made and false religion, Christianity, is self-contradicting and self-refuting.  They have no solid ground to stand on, and yet, they have the loudest mouths when it comes to attacking Islam on mentioning that sex in Heaven does exist.  They consider this prostitution, when in reality, it is legitimate and legal relationship between a husband and his wives and a master and his harems.  Every believer will be a King of his realm in Heaven, and just like kings here on earth have their maids and their wives and their servants for all different purposes, the Kings in Heaven will have much much greater pleasures and services and servants.

Personally, I'll take GOD Almighty's Heaven anytime and leave the Eternal Doom of Hell to these infidels to rot in.  I am not saying that sex in Heaven proves that Islam is the Divine Truth of GOD Almighty.  But it certainly does not disprove anything about Islam.  Those who mock Islam through this point are:

1-  Completely ignorant about their bible, since their bibles too do testify that Physical Heaven does exist, and sex in Heaven does exist.

2-  Completely desperate to disprove Islam.

To see the irrefutable proofs about Islam being indeed the Divine Truth from GOD Almighty, please visit: The Overwhelming Scientific Miracles in the Glorious Quran.

Indeed, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty alone for making the Noble Quran be the Perfect and Everlasting Miracle, for us humans, out of all of His Divine Miracles!  And may Allah Almighty send His Peace, Mercy and Blessings upon our Beloved and Blessed Prophet, Teacher and Role Model, Muhammad.  Ameen.
