Thus Allah repays them who fear Him

Suratun-Nahl – (The Bee) – 16

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast)

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

   جَنَّٰتُ عَدْنٍ يَدْخُلُونَهَا تَجْرِى مِن تَحْتِهَا ٱلْأَنْهَٰرُ لَهُمْفِيهَا مَا يَشَآءُونَ كَذَٰلِكَ يَجْزِى ٱللَّهُ ٱلْمُتَّقِينَ 31


31.  Gardens of Eden which they enter, underneath which rivers flow, wherein they have what they will. Thus Allah repayeth those who ward off (evil)- 31.  Jannaatu  ’Adniny-yadkhuluu-nahaa  tajrii  min  tahtihal-  ‘anhaaru  lahum  fiihaa  maa  ya-shaaa-‘uun.  Kazaalika  yajZillaahul-Muttaqiin.   




’Adnin – (Eden, a delightful place of living for ever), it is a name from the names of Paradise (Jannah).


It is commanded that there would be very beautiful Gardens, in which they will dwell for ever and no one will be able to cause them to come out from that place and nor that place will be snatched from them ever. They will be provided there every such best thing which will they desire.


Allah Almighty has prepared such remuneration for the good people who fear Him and who save themselves from such deeds which are forbidden by Him. In this verse two specific matters of Paradise have been described:


  • Delight and comfort of that place will never come to an end.


  • Hearts of its dwellers will never be displeased.


Sometimes in this world, a man does not have money for purchasing comfortable things. Moreover, sometimes he possesses money but cannot get things of his necessity. Other people snatch from him or he suffers due to any reason for example a famine etc. happens.


Secondly, every that thing will be available there immediately for which will he be longing. In the world, none can obtain everything. Often a human being desires anxiously here, but there; every desired thing will be available at the spot without any delay.
