Quran Verses of Jannah (Paradise) that I LOVE

Assalamu Alikum sisters!

These days, we often forget that we will return to our Lord one day. If anything, we always make dua about going to Jannah and talk about it, but when have we ever pondered on it? For me, I’ve always known in my heart that Jannah was the destination, but I often never thought much of the place. Therefore, I love this wisdom of having descriptive verses of Paradise in the Quran, every time I read them, it inspires me to be a better Muslimah, so I can go to this beautiful place…and live there forever.

I’m sure you guys have watched my video “How to become a Woman of Jannah” by now (link here!), and I touched upon reading Quran verses about Jannah to feel closer to it, to feel closer to that end goal. So, I’m going to share my personal favourite verses and how they inspire me! I’m going to make an effort for myself to read them often, so I never forget what all of my effort in this world will go into in the future :)

Indeed, the righteous will be in pleasure (22) On adorned couches, observing. (23) You will recognize in their faces the radiance of pleasure. (24) They will be given to drink [pure] wine [which was] sealed. (25) The last of it is musk. So for this let the competitors compete. (26) And its mixture is of Tasneem, (27) A spring from which those near [to Allah] drink. (28)

Quran 83: 22 – 28

This verse is so nice to read because it talks about happiness and being able to drink from a spring near Allah. Can you even imagine having that physical closeness to God? It fills me with such a desire I can’t even explain. Also, faces glowing with pleasure and drinking purified wine with the mixture of Tasneem. At first, I didn’t know what Tasneem was so I went and learned some tafsir about it. So in the verse we know about Tasneem being a sort of mixture – but in Arabic, the word Tasneem is meant to be from a “higher place”. And in ayat 28, the “higher place” is the spring in Jannah which only those NEAR TO ALLAH will get to actually drink from fully, not just as a mixture.

Think of it like when you add sugar into your coffee to make it taste more magical. Tasneem is what gives the drink its flavour. And if you are one of those near to Allah (may we all be by Allah’s mercy) you’ll get to drink the Tasneem spring itself!

That, to me, is a reason to do the best that I can to get the best of Jannah ~

Is the description of Paradise, which the righteous are promised, wherein are rivers of water unaltered, rivers of milk the taste of which never changes, rivers of wine delicious to those who drink, and rivers of purified honey, in which they will have from all [kinds of] fruits and forgiveness from their Lord (15)

Quran 47:15

Ahh the four rivers. When I read this verse, I’m always captivated by the imagination of the rivers – the colours of crystal, maroon, pearly white, and liquid gold babbling through the green gardens of Jannah. Delicious to the tongue and never out of taste. Of course, my imagination probably doesn’t do any justice to what it would really be, and that makes it even more special. It’s funny, I’m not tempted by alcohol in this life, but I can’t wait to taste it in Jannah. Also, fruits? What kind of fruits will we eat over there? It’s so tempting!

Those will have gardens of perpetual residence; beneath them rivers will flow. They will be adorned therein with bracelets of gold and will wear green garments of fine silk and brocade, reclining therein on adorned couches. Excellent is the reward, and good is the resting place. (31)

Quran 18:31

Talk about royalty! This verse feels like something out of a fairy tale. Talking about our clothes in Jannah feels like a place where everything is of luxury, fabrics that feel amazing on your skin. And the words “gardens beneath them rivers flow” which I see mentioned countlessly in the Quran. Nouman Ali Khan’s perspective was that even today, if you go to the wealthy neighbourhoods or go to resorts, almost everything has gardens and water.

Mansions are built near the lakes or oceans, pools are in the backyard, and land is surrounding the areas. And just in general, when we want to take a retreat, where does everyone mostly go? To the cottage, lake, or cabin in the woods. Meaning, the verse “gardens beneath them rivers flow” tells us that Allah is giving us what we wanted all along. To dip our feet in the cooling waters and have nature surround us – SubhanAllah!

But not the chosen servants of Allah. (40) Those will have a provision determined – (41) Fruits; and they will be honored (42) In gardens of pleasure (43) On thrones facing one another. (44) There will be circulated among them a cup [of wine] from a flowing spring, (45) White and delicious to the drinkers; (46) No bad effect is there in it, nor from it will they be intoxicated. (47)

Quran 37:40 – 47

I like this ayat a lot because, despite talking about the descriptions of drinks and gardens, it also talks about how we will be with the people around us. How we will sit on thrones facing each other and drink from a single cup that we’ll pass around. To me, it shows the close bond we will have with everyone. It brings much comfort to read this because sometimes the relationships we have in the world aren’t always the best. And you feel lonely. But you won’t ever feel lonely in Jannah…

[Other] faces, that Day, will show pleasure. (8) With their effort [they are] satisfied (9) In an elevated garden, (10) Wherein they will hear no unsuitable speech. (11) Within it is a flowing spring. (12) Within it are couches raised high (13) And cups put in place (14) And cushions lined up (15) And carpets spread around. (16)

Quran 88:8-16

The last 4 ayats feel like there is a place that is READY for you to enter and enjoy yourself. And isn’t Jannah, right now, waiting for us? Just imagine, Allah has prepared a special place just for you: the comfiest raised couches, elaborate cups ready to be filled with the most delicious (and heavenly) drinks, the softest cushions, and plush spread carpets!

These verses make it feel like Jannah is not just a distant promise but a present reality, waiting for us to enter and enjoy the beautiful things Allah has set up for us. 

It reminds me that my righteousness and patience will be rewarded, for us to do the good in this world, so that we can be worthy of entering this.

And there you have it! I hope these verses helped inspire you to think more about Jannah and feel comforted that it’s not so far away than we think. What are your favourite verses of Jannah in the Quran?

With love and sisterhood,

Her Deen & Dunya
