Would Islam Affect My Cultures?

A Glimpse of Jannah

I love that in the Quran, Allah gives us a glimpse of what Jannah will be like. He tells us about gardens, rivers, food; things that we can see on the earth. And because we can see these things, we can imagine, to our best ability, what Jannah will be like. So because we can see the beauty on the earth, it makes us long for Jannah. We know that no matter how beautiful earth is, Jannah will be so much better. If we could not understand what was being described about Jannah we wouldn’t long for it like we do. This longing helps us to strive for Jannah.

When I’m struggling, when a hardship comes my way, when I’m hurt or afraid, Allah has put these beautiful descriptions of Jannah in the Quran to help us through. Not only describing what Jannah will be like but also telling us that we won’t experience any hardship or sadness or pain or fear in Jannah. That’s one of the most amazing things that Allah could have shared with us. We can live happy and in peace for all of eternity.

That sometimes I want something but I can’t have it but in Jannah we can have whatever we want. We just have to think it and we will get it, whether it’s food, books, clothes, anything!

Knowing these things about Jannah helps us to keep going when we feel like we can’t continue. When we feel like the pain won’t ever go away, knowing that we can live pain free for an eternity can push us to keep going.

So I know that no matter what happens in the dunya, whatever difficulties I may face, as long as I do my best to worship Allah and stay on the straight path, Jannah will be my reward, where I can live peacefully for all of eternity and that the biggest blessing of being in Jannah will be to finally meet our Lord.
