Facilities in the Heaven

Chapter “YAA-SIIIN” – (YASIN) – 36

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.

 (I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)


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


إِنَّ أَصْحَٰبَ ٱلْجَنَّةِ ٱلْيَوْمَ فِى شُغُلٍ فَٰكِهُونَ 55  هُمْ وَأَزْوَٰجُهُمْ فِى ظِلَٰلٍ عَلَى ٱلْأَرَآئِكِ مُتَّكِـُٔونَ 56  لَهُمْ فِيهَا فَٰكِهَةٌ وَلَهُم مَّا يَدَّعُونَ 57

  سَلَٰمٌ قَوْلًا مِّن رَّبٍّ رَّحِيمٍ 58

55.  Lo! The inmates of Paradise this Day are happily employed.


56.  They and their wives, in pleasant shade, on thrones reclining.


57.  Theirs is the fruit (of their good deeds) and theirs (all) that they ask –


58.  The Word from a Merciful Lord (for them) is: Peace!

55.  ‘Inna  ‘As-haabal-Jannatil-Yawma  fii  shugulin-  faakihuun.


56.  Hum  wa  ‘azwaajuhum  fii  zilaalin  ‘alal-‘araaa-‘iki  muttaki-‘uun.


57.  Lahum  fiihaa  faakihatunw-wa  lahum-maa  yadda-‘uun.


58.  “Salaam”.  Qawlam-mir-Rab-bir-Rahiim.



Faakihuuna – {they will be amused in (joyful) occupation, they are happily employed}, this word is plural of faakihatun, which is the Subject from fakaha. Fakaha means “amusement”. The words fakihun and faakihatun have also been derived from the same which means “Fruit of all kinds eating which makes the nature happy”.


It was commanded previously: Reward or punishment will be given to every individual according to personal deeds. No one should consider that his/her deeds would never be checked. Thinking so is wrong because there is a Law for the mankind, in accordance with which they have to live in this world. If they will break the Law; they will be punished, but if they will abide by the Rules and Regulations; then good reward of their good deeds will be given to them. And the followers of the Law will go to the Paradise after death. In this verse, there is mention concerning them.


It is commanded: On the Day of Resurrection, those people will be very happy whose abode will be in the Paradise. They will converse with one another pleasantly and be amused in joyful occupation. They and their wives will be sitting in shade, reclining on adorned couches. All kinds of delicious fruit will be placed before them. Everything, required to them, will be provided to them immediately. They will neither have to cry for servants and nor have to wait for anything. Besides these bodily pleasures, their Lord will say to them “Peace” for their spiritual comfort and satisfaction. They will be so much happy at that time.
