Rebuttal to Craig Winn "Prophet of Doom: MUHAMMAD'S PARADISE" article:

The following article is a rebuttal to Craig Winn's article that is located at:  http://www../quotes4.html#paradise.  

 

Important Note to the Reader:

Craig Winn purposely twisted and modified the English translations that he used!  He changes words in translations and uses non-Muslim ones.  I've noticed this a lot through his translations of the Noble Verses that he used from the Noble Quran.

He wrote:

MUHAMMAD’S PARADISE:

Qur’an 56:8 “Those of the right hand-how happy will be those of the right hand! …Who will be honored in the Garden of Bliss; Qur’an 56:13 “A multitude of those from among the first, and a few from the latter, (will be) on  couch-like thrones woven with gold and precious stones. Reclining, facing each other. Round about them will (serve) boys of perpetual (freshness), of never ending bloom, with goblets, jugs, and cups (filled) with sparkling wine. No aching of the head will they receive, nor suffer any madness, nor exhaustion. And with fruits, any that they may select: and the flesh of fowls, any they may desire. And (there will be) Hur (fair females) with big eyes, lovely and pure, beautiful ones, like unto hidden pearls, well-guarded in their shells. A reward for the deeds.”
Qur’an 56:33 “Unending, and unforbidden, exalted beds, and maidens incomparable. We have formed them in a distinctive fashion and made them virgins, loving companions matched in age, for the sake of those of the right hand.” [Another translation reads:] “On couches or thrones raised high. Verily, We have created them (maidens) incomparable: We have formed their maidens as a special creation, and made them to grow a new growth. We made them virgins—pure and undefiled, lovers, matched in age.”
Bukhari:V8B76N550 “I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, ‘From my followers there will be a crowd of 70,000 in number who will enter Paradise whose faces will glitter as the moon.’”
Qur’an 37:40 “Fruits, Delights; they will be honored in the Gardens of Pleasure, on thrones facing one another. Round them will be passed a cup of pure white wine, delicious to the drinkers, free from ghoul (hurt), nor shall you be made mad or exhausted thereby. And with them will be Qasirat-at-Tarf (virgin females), restraining their glances (desiring none but you), with big, beautiful eyes. As if they were (sheltered) eggs, preserved.”
Qur’an 88:8 “Faces will be joyful, glad with their endeavour. In a lofty Garden they hear no harmful speech.” Qur’an88:12 “Therein will be a bubbling spring, raised throne-like couches, drinking cups ready placed, cushions set in rows, and rich silken carpets all spread out.”
Bukhari:V4B55N544 “Allah's Apostle said, ‘The first group who will enter Paradise will be glittering like the moon and those who will follow will glitter like the most brilliant star. They will not urinate, relieve nature, spit, or have any nasal secretions. Their combs will be gold and their sweat will smell like musk. Their companions will be houris [virgins]. All of them will look alike and will be sixty cubits (180 feet) tall.’”
Bukhari:V8B76N542 “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘The believers, after being saved from the Fire, will be stopped at a bridge between Paradise and Hell and mutual retaliation will be established among them regarding wrongs they have committed against one another. After they are cleansed and purified through the retaliation, they will be admitted into Paradise.’”
Qur’an 47:15 “(Here is) a Parable of the Garden which those who fear and keep their duty are promised: in it are rivers of unpolluted water; rivers of milk which the taste never changes; rivers of wine, a delicious joy to the drinkers; and rivers of running honey pure and clear. In it there are all kinds of fruits with pardon from their Lord.”
Qur’an 76:5 “As for the righteous, they will drink a cup of wine from a spring, making it gush forth abundantly.” Qur’an 76:19 “And round them shall serve immortal boys of perpetual freshness, never altering in age. If you saw them, you would think they were scattered pearls.” Qur’an 76:21 “Upon them will be green garments of fine green silk and heavy gold brocade. They will be adorned with bracelets of silver; their Lord will slack their thirst with wine.”
Qur’an 77:41 “The righteous shall be amidst cool shades, springs, and fruits—all they desire. Eat and drink to your heart’s content.”
Qur’an 78:31 “Verily for those who follow Us, there will be a fulfillment of your desires: enclosed Gardens, grapevines, voluptuous full-breasted maidens of equal age, and a cup full to the brim of wine. There they never hear vain discourse nor lying—a gift in payment—a reward from your Lord.”
Qur’an 83:22 “The believers will be in Delightful Bliss: On couch-like thrones, gazing, their thirst will be slaked with pure wine.”
Qur’an 85:11 “For those who believe and do good deeds will be Gardens; the fulfillment of all desires.”
Bukhari:V7B69N494 “I heard the Prophet saying, ‘From among my followers there will be some who will consider illegal sexual intercourse, the wearing of silk, the drinking of alcoholic drinks and the use of musical instruments, to be lawful. Allah will destroy them during the night and will let mountains fall on them. He will transform the rest into monkeys and pigs and they will remain so till the Day of Doom.’”
Bukhari:V4B54N476-544 “The Prophet said, ‘In Paradise they will not urinate, relieve nature, spit, or have any nasal secretions. Everyone will have two virgins who will be so beautiful and transparent the bones of their legs will be seen through their flesh.’”
Qur’an 52:17 “Verily, the Muttaqun (those who fear) will be in Gardens and Delight. Enjoying the (bliss) which their Lord has provided, and their Lord saved them from the torment of the blazing Fire. ‘Eat and drink with glee, because of what you used to do.’ They will recline (with ease) on Throne Couches (of dignity) arranged in ranks; and We shall join them to beautiful Hur (female maidens) with big, lustrous eyes.”
Qur’an 52:21 “Those who believe and whose families follow them in Faith, to them shall We join their offspring: Nor shall We deprive them of their works: (Yet) each individual is in pledge for his deeds. [Imagine that. Wives and children will be joined with husbands and fathers who are cavorting with virgins. That ought to be entertaining.] And We shall provide fruit and meat, anything they desire. There they shall pass from hand to hand a (wine) cup free of frivolity, free of all taint of vanity or cause of sin. Round about them will serve, (devoted) to them, young boy servants of their own (handsome) as well-guarded pearls. They will advance to each other, drawing near, engaging in mutual enquiry. They will say: ‘We used to be afraid (of the punishment) in the midst of our families, but Allah has been good to us, and has delivered us from the torment of the Scorching Wind and Breath of Fire.”
Qur’an 55:46 “For him who lives in terror of his Lord are two Gardens containing delights: shade, two fountains flowing, fruits in pairs. Reclining on carpets lined with silk brocade, fruits hanging low. In them virginal females with averted glances (desiring none but you), undeflowered by men or jinn. Is the reward of goodness aught but goodness?”
Qur’an 55:62 “And beside this, there are two other Gardens, rich green in color from plentiful watering. In them will be two springs, gushing forth, and fruits. And beautiful companions, virgins cloistered in pavilions, undefiled by men and jinn, reclining on green cushions and rich mattresses. Which of the favors of you Lord will you both deny?”

 

 

My response:

First of all, as I proved in my previous rebuttals, the Al-Tabari and Ibn-Ishaq and other sources are extremely doubtful and unauthenticated.  Most Muslim scholars today firmly and strongly believe in this.  Not that the hadiths above are bad or anything, but as most Muslim Scholars agree, we Muslims can't take them as absolute Truth or accurate information.  Much of these volumes are either corrupt or taken out of context.  Again, this is according to the Muslims scholars.  This is why these volumes are considered "unauthenticated".

Also visit:  What parts of the Bible and Hadiths do Muslims believe are closest to the Truth, and Why?


Now in regards to Heaven:

In regards to the Physical Pleasures that will exist in Heaven, it is only normal to have them.  It is not known if the Prophet peace be upon him said the above exact numbers about the Houris and Virgins in Paradise.  As I proved above, the hadiths of Al-Tabari and Ibn-Ishaq are considered "unauthenticated" by most Muslim scholars, and most of the Hadiths in the rest of the volumes are also doubtful because of their uncertain chain of narrations.

Having said that, let's examine Craig Winn's Bible:


According to the Bible, weren't Adam and Eve created in Heaven and in physical bodies?

Wasn't Eve created from Adam's rib?


Also, didn't GOD Almighty create sex?

Wasn't it He who created the penises and vaginas and the sexual sensations in humans??

Wasn't He, the Almighty, who Created the process of sexual intercourse and the sperms and eggs??


There are several articles that I wrote regarding Heaven and Hell in Islam:

Will Hell eventually be empty?  For how long will Allah Almighty punish some of His creation?

Almost every single Christian is going to hell according to the Bible.

Sheol in the Bible:  Hell and Death.

Would you describe Heaven and Hell according to the Islamic doctrine?

Response to the so called "Pornography" in the Noble Quran.

Paradise: Who are the People of Paradise? And who are the "Muminoon (Believers)" in Islam?

Paradise: Ways that lead to Paradise.

Does Paradise in Islam really have Homosexuality in it?

Is our destiny pre-determined by GOD?  Does GOD choose who is evil and who is good?  How come GOD didn't make all of us good if He is the "Most Merciful" and "Most Just"? 

Did GOD create some Men and Jinns to be destined to hell?

After death, what would prevent a Muslim from entering Heaven?  Also, how long will the Disbelievers stay in Hell?

How does a Muslim get to Heaven, saved, reach a state of perfect harmony with God?

 


From www.answering-christianity.com/heaven_hell.htm:

salvi@bigates.com


Well, according to Islam, both Heaven and Hell have different levels of pleasure and punishment respectively. 

 

Heaven in Islam:

I was told by a Muslim scholar and minister at the Mosque that Allah Almighty created Heaven with 500 levels.  The highest level will have the Prophets, the Martyrs and the most righteous, loving and pious believers the world ever had.  The lowest level of paradise will be for those who barely made it to Heaven.  The portion each person will have in the lowest level will be five times bigger than the size of the planet earth.

The following Hadith (Saying of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him) further prove that Heaven has multiple levels in it:

Abdullah b. Mas'ud reported that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said:   "I know the last of the inhabitants of Fire to be taken out therefrom, and the last of the inhabitants of Paradise to enter it. A man will come out of the Fire crawling. Then Allah, the Blessed and Exalted will say to him: Go and enter Paradise. So he would come to it and it would appear to him as if it were full. He would go back and say: O my Lord! I found it full. Allah, the Blessed and Exalted, would say to him: Go and enter Paradise. He would come and perceive as if it were full. He would return and say: O my Lord! I found it full. Allah would say to him: Go and enter Paradise, for there is for you the like of the world and ten times like it, or for you is ten times the like of this world. He (the narrator) said. He (that man) would say: Art Thou making a fun of me? or Art Thou laughing at me. though Thou art the King? He (the narrator) said: I saw the Messenger of Allah laugh till his front teeth were visible. And it was said: That would be the lowest rank among the inhabitants of Paradise.  (Translation of Sahih Muslim, The Book of Faith (Kitab Al-Iman), Book 001, Number 0359)"


All people from the highest to the lowest levels will be able to communicate with each others.  However, no one will be able to live or enjoy the pleasure of the higher levels than what he already has.  He can go to the lower levels, but he can't go to the higher ones:

"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)"

Even though the winners of Paradise will be "arranged in ranks", as I mentioned above with the 500 different levels of Paradise, but they will still be joined with their families and loved ones from the Companions.

So, let's say we have a mother and a son.  The mother was admitted to level 256, and the son was admitted to level 310.  Both the mother and the son can still see each others, but she won't be able to enjoy the things her son is enjoying, nor will he be able to share them with her.

It is similar to us here on earth, where if we have two friends, one is a multi millionaire and the other is a poor fellow.  Both men can still be friends and go out together, but the millionaire guy most probably eats better food, drives a better car, lives in a much fancier and bigger house, lives in a much better and more expensive and fancier neighborhood, wears better and more expensive cloths, wears better smelling perfumes, vacations to better and more fun places and expensive places, etc.... 

No dung, piss, bad body odor, bad breath, or bad sweat smell will exist in Heaven.   The food and the drinks that we consume into our bodies will turn into great smelling musk.  The higher the person's level in Paradise the better his smell will be.

Also in Paradise, all people will be pure in the heart.  No jealousy or bad feelings will exist.  Allah Almighty will cause everyone to be happy for what he/she has. 

 

Heaven is the Home of Peace.  No evil will exist in it:

As Allah Almighty said in the Noble Quran, Heaven will be the Home of Peace.  Not even an atom of evil of any kind will exist in it:

"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)"

"But Allah doth call To the Home of Peace: He doth guide whom He pleaseth to a Way that is straight.  (The Noble Quran, 10:25)"

"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)"

"Hast thou not turned Thy vision to those Who claim sanctity For themselves? Nay -- but Allah Doth sanctify Whom He pleaseth, But never will they Fail to receive justice In the least little thing.  (The Noble Quran, 4:49)"

"O ye who believe! Follow not Satan's footsteps: If any will follow the footsteps Of Satan, he will (but) command What is shameful and wrong: And were it not for the grace And mercy of Allah on you, Not one of you would ever Have been pure: but Allah Doth purify whom He pleases: And Allah is One Who Hears and knows (all things).  (The Noble Quran, 24:21)"

According to the Noble Verses above, Heaven is the Home of Peace where the winners of Paradise will live in peace and harmony with each others and with Allah Almighty.  He will remove all evil from their hearts and purify them.

 

What is the size of it?

Even though Allah Almighty never gave the exact area of it, but He did give us valuable information about it's size:

"Be ye foremost (in seeking) Forgiveness from your Lord, And a Garden (of Bliss), The width whereof is As the width of Heaven and earth, Prepared for those who believe In Allah and His messengers:  That is the Grace of Allah, Which He bestows on whom He pleases: and Allah is The Lord of Grace abounding.   (The Noble Quran, 57:21)"

"Be quick in the race For forgiveness from your Lord, And for a Garden whose width Is that (of the whole) Of the heavens And the earth, Prepared for the righteous.  (The Noble Quran, 3:133)"

In Arabic the plural and singular of the word "heaven" can be the same depending on the use of the word in the sentence.  In Noble Verse 57:21, Allah Almighty used the word "heaven" for the Universe, and in Noble Verse 3:133, He used the word "heavens".

Allah Almighty mentioned that He created seven heavens to form the universe.  We are living in the lowest heaven, or heaven number 1.  If the width of Paradise is as equal as the width of the universe starting from the earth and ending in the seventh heaven, then this should give us a very clear picture that the size of Heaven is unbelievably huge!

 

Who lives beside humans in Paradise?

Angels, Jinns and Humans and the Servants and Houris of Paradise will live there.   All inhabitants of Heaven will be able to communicate with each others, whether they are Jinns with Humans or Humans with Angels or Jinns with Angels.  But since each one of them is created differently from the others, their will be limitations to some of the communication there such as marriage and sex.  Humans for instance can't marry or have sex with the Angels or the Jinns, and vise versa to the rest.

Anyway, each human person in Paradise will have his own world.  In his world he will have lofty mansions, beautiful nature, great food; plenty of tasty meat, fruits, vegetables, rivers of honey and milk, and other great gifts of anything he desires from Allah Almighty:

"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)"

 

Servants and Houris:

Every winner of Paradise's world will also be filled with Servants and virgin Houris.   All winners of Paradise will enjoy the service of the young Servants and virgin Houris:

"Round about them will (serve) Youths of perpetual (freshness), With goblets, (shinning) beakers, And cups (filled) out of Clear-flowing fountains:  No after-ache will they Receive therefrom, nor will they Suffer intoxication.  (The Noble Quran, 56:17-19)"

"Round about them will serve, (Devoted) to them, Youths (handsome) as Pearls Well-guarded.  They will advance To each other, engaging In mutual enquiry.  (The Noble Quran, 52:24-25)"

"And round about them Will (serve) youths Of perpetual (freshness): If thou seest them, Thou wouldst think them Scattered Pearls.  (The Noble Quran, 76:19)"

"We have created (their Companions) Of special creation, And made them Virgin-pure (and undefiled) -- Beloved (by nature) Equal in age -- For the Companions Of the Right Hand.  (The Noble Quran, 56:35-38)"

"And besides them will be Chaste women; restraining Their glances, with big eyes (Of wonder and beauty).  As if they were (Delicate) eggs closely guarded.  (The Noble Quran, 37:48-49)"

"And beside them will be Chaste women restraining Their glances, (companions) Of equal age.  Such is the Promise Made to you For the Day of Account!  Truly such will be Our Bounty (to you) It will never fail.  (The Noble Quran, 38:52-54)"

"As to the Righteous (They will be) in A position of Security.  Among Gardens and Springs; Dressed in fine silk And in rich brocade, They will face each other; Moreover, We shall Join them to Companions With beautiful, big, And lustrous eyes.  There can they call For every kind of fruit In peace and security.  Nor will they there Taste Death, except the first Death; and He will preserve Them from the Penalty Of the Blazing Fire.  (The Noble Quran, 44:51-56)"

"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)"

"In them will be (Maidens), Chaste, restraining their glances, Whom no man or Jinn Before them has touched.  (The Noble Quran, 55:56)"

"In them will be Fair (Companions), good, beautiful.  (The Noble Quran, 55:70)"

"Companions restrained (as to Their glances), in (goodly) pavilions.  (The Noble Quran, 55:72)"

"And (there will be) Companions With beautiful, big, And lustrous eyes -- Like unto Pearls Well-guarded.  A Reward for the Deeds Of their past (Life).  (The Noble Quran, 56:22-24)"

"Gardens enclosed, and Grapevines; Companions of Equal Age; And a Cup full (To the Brim).  (The Noble Quran, 78:32-34)"

 

Unity with our families:

Even though each person will be rewarded a certain level in Paradise, but as I said everyone will be able to communicate with the others.  The People of Paradise will be like one big loving family, with different goods for each person.  Allah Almighty promised the Believers that they will be reunited with their believing families in Paradise:

"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)"

Narrated Anas:  "A man asked the Prophet about the Hour (i.e. Day of Judgment) saying, "When will the Hour be?" The Prophet said, "What have you prepared for it?" The man said, "Nothing, except that I love Allah and His Apostle." The Prophet said, "You will be with those whom you love." We had never been so glad as we were on hearing that saying of the Prophet (i.e., "You will be with those whom you love.") Therefore, I love the Prophet, Abu Bakr and 'Umar, and I hope that I will be with them because of my love for them though my deeds are not similar to theirs.  (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Companions of the Prophet, Volume 5, Book 57, Number 37)"

Even though the winners of Paradise will be "arranged in ranks", as I mentioned above with the 500 different levels of Paradise, but they will still be joined with their families and loved ones from the Companions as clearly shown in Noble Verses 52:20-21 and the Hadith (Saying) of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.

 

We will enjoy the Presence of Allah Almighty:

The greatest things that will happen to us in Heaven is that Allah Almighty will be present there.  We will be able to directly communicate with Him, and He will be our friend, and we will be able to live near Him:

"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)"

"There will be for them Therein all that they wish -- And more besides In Our Presence.  (The Noble Quran, 50:35)"

"And Allah sets forth, As an example To those who believe, The wife of Pharaoh: Behold she said: 'O my Lord! build For me, in nearness To Thee, a mansion In the Garden, And save me from Pharaoh And his doings, And save me from Those that do wrong'  (The Noble Quran, 66:11)"

"Verily, for the Righteous, Are Gardens of Delight, In the Presence of their Lord.  (The Noble Quran, 68:34)"

 

Will time in Heaven ever end?

The following information was taken from the "What does "forever" really mean?" section in the Hell according to Islam will eventually be empty article:

"Those who are wretched shall be in the Fire:  There will be for them therein (nothing but) the heaving of sighs and sobs:  They will dwell therein for all the time that the heavens and the earth endure, except as thy Lord willeth:  for thy Lord is the (sure) accomplisher of what He planneth. And those who are blessed shall be in the Garden:  They will dwell therein for all the time that the heavens and the earth endure, except as thy Lord willeth:  a gift without break.  (The Noble Quran, 11:106-108)"

Notice in these Noble Verses that the time limit that Allah Almighty had set for Paradise is endless and is a "gift without break", while the time for Hell is limited to "the time that the heavens and the earth endure, except as thy Lord willeth".   It is clear that the time in Hell in the Noble Quran is limited and the time in Paradise never ending.

Notice the assurance of Allah Almighty about the time of Paradise being infinite, while He didn't make the same claim about the time of Hell.  In fact, He left the time of Hell open and unclear, which clearly proves that Hell will eventually be empty according to Islam, or to say the least, it will not be infinite in time as Paradise.

 

What about women in paradise. Will they too have Companions and Servants?

I wrote a detailed article before that covered the topic and gifts for women in Paradise:

Does Paradise in Islam really have Lesbianism in it?

 

Hell in Islam:

Hell according to Islam is a purifying place that Allah Almighty will use for punishing those whom He Wills for their sins, and to purify all of those who are badly corrupted by Satan's dirt from temptations and evil intentions toward others such as envy, insolence, and other evil things.

All of those who will enter Paradise shall be purified.  Please read the "Heaven is the Home of Peace.  No evil will exist in it" sub section above for more details.

Also please visit Where do Martyrs go after death?  And will they be judged for their good and bad deeds?

After death, what would prevent a Muslim from entering Heaven?  Also, how long will the Disbelievers stay in Hell?

How does a Muslim get to Heaven, saved, reach a state of perfect harmony with God?

I liked your concept of God in Islam and that man can directly have fellowship with God.  But how does God stand the sin in man ? How does God see the sin between man and man?

 

The levels of Hell:

It appears from the Noble Quran that Hell will have 7 levels with 19 Guards:

"And verily, Hell Is the promised abode For them all!  To it are seven Gates: For each of those Gates Is a (special) class (Of sinners) assigned.  (The Noble Quran, 15:43-44)"

"Over it are Nineteen (i.e., guards).  And We have set none but angels as Guardians of the Fire; and We have fixed their number only as a trial for Unbelievers,- in order that the People of the Book may arrive at certainty, and the Believers may increase in Faith,- and that no doubts may be left for the People of the Book and the Believers, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the Unbelievers may say, 'What symbol doth God intend by this?'  Thus doth God leave to stray whom He pleaseth, and guide whom He pleaseth: and none can know the forces of thy Lord, except He and this is no other than a warning to mankind.  (The Noble Quran, 74:30-31)"

Please visit Yes, the number 19 is miraculous in the Noble Quran and was proven to be essential in many of the Scientific Theories and Discoveries.

There are certainly levels of punishment in Hell.  The hypocrites will be in the most painful one:

"The Hypocrites will be in the lowest depths of the Fire: no helper wilt thou find for them;  (The Noble Quran, 4:145)"

Please visit Muslims be careful from the Muslim hypocrites.

 

The food and drink in Hell:

Let us look at what Allah Almighty said in the Noble Quran:

"Is that the better entertainment Or the Tree of Zaqqum?   For We have truly Made it (as) a trial For the wrongdoers.  For it is a tree That springs out Of the bottom of Hellfire:  That shoots of its fruit-stalks Are like the heads Of devils:  Truly they will eat thereof And fill their bellies therewith.  Then on top of that They will be given A mixture made of Boiling water.  Then shall their return Be to the (Blazing) Fire.  (The Noble Quran, 37:62-68)"

The Noble Verses are pretty much self explanatory.  Life in Hell is really Hell!   The food the that will be offered is from the Tree of Zaqqum, which fruits-stalks look like heads of devils, and the drinking water will be a boiling water.

 

Hell according to Islam will eventually be empty:

I've written a long article about this, backed with so many Noble Verses from the Noble Quran that clearly and directly and unquestionably prove that Hell will be empty.

Please visit Hell according to Islam will eventually be empty.

 

Heaven according to the Noble Quran and Hadiths description:

The following article was sent to me by brother/sister salvi@bigates.com; may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him/her.

Paradise: Description in the Qur'an

Our final destination is the life of the Hereafter.  Where we end up, Jannah (Paradise) or Jahannam (Hell-fire) depends on what we worked towards in this life.   Paradise is the aim and the hope of every Muslim.  But like trying to attain any goal, in order to achieve success, one must have a well-defined plan, and it must be implemented to be successful.  Allah says, "O you who believe! Be careful of (your duty to) Allah and seek means of nearness to Him and strive hard in His way that you may be successful." [5:35]   To prepare for our journey, we need to find out what our destination is like; who are its people, and most importantly, how to get there.

The Prophet, sallallahu alayhe wasallam, told us that within Paradise are things that no eyes have ever seen, nor ears have ever heard, and that things in it are beyond our imagination and comprehension, but we all have our own personal ideas of what eternal bliss would probably be like.  I remember a few years ago, I overheard my niece and my nephew discussing the landscape, and the privileges of living in Jannah. My nephew was telling my niece that in Jannah, they would be able to eat all the candy that they wanted and that there would be streams of chocolate and trees of ice cream.  I always tell people, that Paradise for me, would be being able to eat all the cheesecake and chocolate that I wanted, without gaining a pound.  But what Allah has in store for the believers is so much more than this.  He, in His Book, and through His Messenger, sallallahu alayhe  wasallam, has given us a clear picture of our goal, so that we can keep it in front of us at all times.  By keeping our eyes on theprize, no matter our hardships in this worldly life, we can strive that much harder to attain it.

Allah says, "And whoever desires the Hereafter and strives for it as he ought to strive and he is a believer; (as for) these, their striving shall surely be accepted." [17:19]  Allah has also described Paradise in many places in the Qur'an, so let us now take a look at what He has in store for the believers.


Description in the Qur'an of Paradise

“The description of Paradise which the Muttaqoon have been promised is that in it are rivers of water, the taste and smell of which are never changed. Rivers of milk the taste of which will remain unchanged. Rivers of wine that will be delicious to those who drink from it and rivers of clear, pure honey. For them will be every kind of fruit and forgiveness form their Lord." [47:15] 

"And their recompense shall be Paradise, and silken garments, because they were patient. Reclining on raised thrones, they will see there neither the excessive heat of the sun, nor the excessive bitter cold, (as in Paradise there is no sun and no moon). The shade will be close upon them, and bunches of fruit will hang low within their reach. Vessels of silver and cups of crystal will be passed around amongst them, crystal-clear, made of silver. They will determine the measure of them according to their wishes. They will be given a cup (of wine) mixed with Zanjabeel, and a fountain called Salsabeel. Around them will (serve) boys of perpetual youth. If you see them, you would think they are scattered pearls. When you look there (in Paradise) you will see a delight (that can not be imagined), and a Great Dominion. Their garments will be of fine green silk and gold embroidery. They will be adorned with bracelets of silver, and their Lord will give them a pure drink." [76:12-21]

"And those foremost (In Tawheed and obedience to Allah and His Messenger in this life) will be foremost (in Paradise). They will be those nearest to Allah in the Gardens of Delight. A multitude of those (the foremost) will be from the first generation (who embraced Islam) and a few of those (the foremost) will be from the later (generations). They will be reclining, face to face, on thrones woven with gold and precious stones. They will be served by immortal boys, with cups and jugs, and a glass from the flowing wine, from which they will have neither any headache, nor any intoxication. They will have fruit from which they may choose, and the flesh of fowls that they desire. There will be Houris with wide, lovely eyes (as wives for the pious), like preserved pearls, a reward for deeds that they used to do. They will hear no vain or sinful speech (like backbiting, etc.) but only the saying of: Salam, Salam, (greetings of peace). And those on the Right Hand, who will be those on the Right Hand? They will be among thorn-less lote-trees among Talh (banana trees) with fruits piled one above another, in long-extended shade, by constantly flowing water, and fruit in plenty, whose season is not limited, and their supply will not be cut off. They will be on couches or thrones raised high. Verily, We have created for them (maidens) of equal age, loving (their husbands only). For those on the Right Hand." [56:10-38]

"Verily, the dwellers of Paradise that Day, will be busy in joyful things. They and their wives will be in pleasant shade, reclining on thrones. They will have therein fruits (of all kinds), and all that they will ask for. (It will be said to them): "Salamun" (Peace be on you), a Word from the Lord, Most Merciful." [36:55-58] 

Can you imagine?  Wearing the finest silk clothing and sitting on chairs made of gold and precious stones?  Those who disbelieve in the words of Allah, say that this is all a fairy-tale, made up by a would-be prophet.  But we know, that Allah is the Truthful and that His Messenger, sallallahu alayhe wasallam, spoke only what was revealed to from the Most Truthful.  And even though Allah describes Paradise for us in the Qur'an, He still says, "So no soul knows the delights of the eyes which is hidden for them; a reward for what they did." [32:17]

Apart from the Qur'anic descriptions of Paradise, the Prophet Muhammad, sallallahu alayhe wa sallam, would often describe Paradise to his companions.  His descriptions were oftentimes so vivid and moving, that many-a-companion would hurriedly rush towards it.  This was the case, as Anas narrated that the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu alayhe wasallam, and his companions proceeded towards Badr and arrived there before the disbelievers (of Makkah).  When the disbelievers arrived, the Messenger of Allah said, "None of you should step forward ahead of me to do anything."  Then the disbelievers advanced (towards us), and the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam, said, "Rise to enter Paradise whose width is equal to the Heavens and the Earth." Umayr Ibnul Humam al-Ansari asked, "O Messenger of Allah, is Paradise equal in width to the heavens and the earth?" He, sallallahu alayhe wasallam, said, "Yes." Umayr said, "Bak'hin! Bak'hin!" (An Arabic word denoting excitement and astonishment) The Messenger of Allah, sallallahu alayhe wasallam, asked him, "What made you say these words: Bak'hin, Bak'hin?" He said, "Messenger of Allah, nothing but the desire to be amongst its residents." He, sallallahu alayhe wasallam, said, "You are surely among its residents." He then took some dates form his bag and began to eat them. Then he said, "If I were to live until I had eaten all of the dates, indeed this life would be too long." Anas then said, "He threw away the remaining dates he had with him. He then fought (the disbelievers) until he was killed." (Muslim)

What words could have inspired Umair and others like him to long for, and to pay the ultimate price for a place in Paradise?  Let's now take a look at what the Messenger of Allah, had to say about Paradise.


Paradise: Description in the Hadith

Abu Sa'eed Al-Khudri narrated that the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu alayhe wasallam, said, "The people of Paradise will look at the dwellers of lofty mansions (i.e. a superior place in Paradise) in the same way as one looks at a brilliant star, far away in the East or in the West of the horizon. This is because of their superiority over one another (in reward)." One of the people asked, "O Allah's Messenger, are these lofty mansions for the Prophets which no one else can reach?" The Prophet, sallallahu alayhe wasallam, replied, "No! By Allah, in whose Hands is my life, these are for men who believe in Allah and also believe in   the Messenger." (Bukhari and Muslim)

Abu Mousa al-Ash'ari narrated that the Prophet, sallallahu alayhe wasallam, said, "Verily, for the believers in Paradise, are tents made of a single hollow pear. The length of which would be sixty miles long from all sides, their wives being therein. The believer will go around them (i.e., visit them) and they will not be able to see each other." (Sahih al-Jami)

Abu Hurairah said that the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu alayhe wasallam, said, "There is not a tree in Paradise, except that its trunk is made of gold." (Sahih al-Jami)

Anas ibn Malik narrated that the Prophet, sallallahu alayhe wasallam, said, "Verily in Paradise there is a market in which (the inhabitants of Paradise) will come to every Friday. The North wind will blow and scatter fragrances on their faces and on their clothes. This will add to their beauty and their attractiveness. They will then go back to their families after having an added luster to their beauty and their attractiveness. Their families will say to them, 'By Allah you have been increased in beauty and loveliness after leaving us,' and they will say, 'By Allah you too have increased in beauty and attractiveness after us.'" (Muslim)

Jabir ibn Abdullah narrated that the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu alayhe wasallam, said, "(I saw in a dream that) I entered Paradise, and behold, there was a palace built of gold. I asked, 'Whose is this palace?' They (the angels) replied, 'For a man from the Quraysh.' So I thought it might be I, so I asked, 'And who is he?' They said, 'Umar Ibnul Khattab.' Nothing stopped me form entering it except your Ghirah (sense of honor)." Umar said, "My Ghirah would never be offended by you, O Messenger of Allah." (Bukhari and Muslim)

Anas ibn Malik said that Allah's Apostle sallallahu alayhe wasallam, said, "I entered Paradise and found myself by a river, by its edges were tents of pearls. Then I tapped with my hands where the water was running, and there was then a beautiful smell of Musk. I asked, 'What is this O Gabriel?' He said, 'This is Kawthar (river in Paradise) which Allah has given to you.'" (Sahih al-Jami)

Shutting the loud mouths of those who unjustly attack Islam, with Truth.

Aisha in Islam:

Let's discuss the age of Aisha being 9 when she married our Prophet (CLICK HERE):

1-  See proofs, in the "Aisha being 9" article, from the Bible about little girls as young as 9 were married off and even sold off by their fathers as slave girls to men who were even older than their fathers.

2-  See also irrefutable proofs that pedophilia and terrorism exist in the Bible.  During the Mosaic times in the Bible's Old Testament, 3-year old slave girls were literally forced into sex under Moses' Orders and Command.  You sometimes have to read things twice to believe them!

See also: Maiming of the enemies' bodies in the Bible.   Cutting the hands and feet of the enemies in the Bible, and hanging their live bodies on trees until they DIE.

*** Fathers sticking their fingers into their daughters' vaginas before marriage in the Bible.


3-
  See also proofs how Aisha's parents were the ones who married her to our Prophet, and that no Muslim or even pagan objected to the marriage because it was widely practiced.  The reason no one objected was:

  1. People used to have very short life-spans in Arabia.   They used to live between 40 to 60 years maximum.  So it was only normal and natural for girls to be married off at ages 9 or 10 or similar.

  2. Marriage for young girls was widely practiced among Arabs back then, and even today in many third-world non-Muslim and Muslim countries.

Rebuttals to Craig Winn - "The Prophet of Doom" book.

Answering Trinity.

Contradictions and History of Corruption in the Bible.

Questions about Jesus that trinitarian Christians don't have logical answers for.

What parts of the Bible do Muslims believe are closest to the Truth? and Why?

"Allah" was GOD Almighty's original Name in the Bible according to the Hebrew and Aramaic sources.

Scientific Miracles in Islam and the Noble Quran.

Most of the Bible's books and gospels were written by mysterious people!

Jesus mentioned Muhammad by the name in the Bible.

Did Isaiah 53 really prophesies about the crucifixion of Jesus? It supports Islam's claims about Jesus peace be upon him never died on the cross.  I also addressed John 19:36-37 from the Bible and proved that Jesus never got crucified, since GOD Almighty promised that he will protect Jesus' body and not let even a single bone be broken.   My question to all Christians is: How in the world is it possible for the feet to get nailed on the cross without any penetration to the bones by the nails, hence breaking part of the feet's bones?! I also added refutations to Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12, Zechariah 12:10 and Psalm 34:20, which supposedly prove the Christians' belief about Jesus crucifixion.  I proved that this dogma has no truth what so ever and exposed the wrong Trinitarian English translation of Zechariah 12:10.
