“Jannah” – also known as paradise or garden in Islam – is described in the Quran as the eternal afterlife of peace and bliss, where the faithful and the righteous are rewarded. The Quran says that the righteous will be calm in the presence of Allah (God), in the “gardens under which rivers flow.” The word “Jannah” comes from the Arabic word, which means “to cover up or hide something.” Therefore, Heaven is a place that is not visible to us. Jannah is the last place in the hereafter for Muslims.

Jennah as described in the quran

The Qur’an describes Jannah as “the beautiful place of the final return is the garden of eternity, the doors of which will always be open for them.” (Quran 38: 49-50)


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

The Qur’an says that in Jannah “… there are rivers of water, the taste and smell of which never change. Rivers of milk, the taste of which will remain unchanged. Rivers of wine that will be delicious for those who drink from it and the river of pure, pure honey, because they will have all the fruit and forgiveness from their Lord. ” (47:15)

The people who enter Jannah “will say:” Praise be to Allah, who removed the sadness from us (all), for our Lord is indeed the Forgiving, grateful, who settled us in the house of lasting living out of His generosity: No toil nor sense of weariness shall touch us therein.”(Quran 35: 34-35)

The Pleasures of Jannah (Paradise)

In Janna there is no sense of possible injury; no fatigue, and Muslims never asked to leave. Muslims in paradise, according to the Qur’an, wear gold, pearls, diamonds and fine silk clothing, and they recline on raised thrones. In Janna there is no pain, sadness or death – there is only joy, happiness and pleasure. This is a heavenly paradise, where trees without thorns, where flowers and fruits fall on each other, where clear and cool water constantly flows, and the companions have big, beautiful, bright eyes – that Allah promises the righteous.

Jannah - ParadiseThere are no disputes or drunkenness in Jannah, but there are four rivers named Saihan, Jaihan, Furat and Nil. There are large mountains of musk and valleys made of pearls and rubies.

What to do to enter Jannah (Paradise)

To enter one of the eight doors of Janna (Paradise) in Islam, Muslims must perform righteous deeds, be truthful, seek knowledge, fear Allah the most merciful, go to the mosque every time you hear the call of salat (five times daily), be free from arrogance, and also spoils war and debt, sincerely and heartily repeat the call to prayer, build mosques, repent and bring up righteous children.

Whoever says the last words: “La Illaha illa Allah”, as they say, will enter Jannah, but you can really only enter Jannah, having achieved salvation through the judgment of God.
