20 beautiful and inspirational sayings about Jannah(Paradise)

Jannah (paradise) is what gives every believer hope of “a better place” away from all the pain, suffering and disappointments of life on earth. The belief in the existence of paradise is what binds us all together irrespective of our creed. As muslims, all we do from the day we are born to the day we die are channelled at making paradise, just as those before and after us. We hold strong to this belief even though no one but the prophet (pbuh) had seen what it looks like. In fact when asked, the prophet (pbuh) replied “no matter how hard I try to explain Jannah to you, you can only imagine but will never understand”. Below are a few quotations which try to inspire us about our final resting place.

  2. “He, who wishes to enter paradise at the best gate, must please his father and mother.” Prophet Muhammad [pbuh]

  8. The gates of Jannah are opened on Mondays and Thursdays, and then every slave (of Allah) is granted forgiveness if he does not associate anything with Allah in worship. But the person in whose heart there is rancor against his (Muslim) brother, they will not be pardoned and with regard to them it will be said twice: ‘Hold both of them until they are reconciled with each other’. [Muslim] Prophet Muhammad (SAW)
  9. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: ”Whoever prays twelve rakats during the night and day, a house will be built for him in paradise. Four before dhuhr, and two after, two rakats after maghrib, two rakats after ishaa, and two rakats before fajr prayer.” Prophet Muhammad (SAW)
  10. It is narrated from Mu`adh ibn Jabal radhiya allahu `anhu [may Allah be pleased with him] that the Prophet (SAW) said: “Whoever controls his anger, emotions of dislike, and wish for vengeance while he is able to carry out his vengeance, Allah, glory to Him, will call him on the Day of Judgment above all the Creation so that he can choose among the very best of the Companions of Paradise for himself. Narrated by Abu Dawood and at-Tirmidhi as a hasan hadith. Prophet Muhammad (SAW)
  11. I advise you to fear Allah and to obey Him (have taqwa) and I advise you to adhere to the Quran, for it is a light in the dark night and a guidance during the day, so implement it no matter how much struggle and poverty you have to face. If a calamity befalls you, put your wealth forward to protect your religion, and if the calamity continues, put forward your wealth and your life to save your religion [but never risk your religion], for the ruined is he whose religion is ruined, and the looted is he whose religion is taken. And know that there is no poverty after Paradise, and no riches after the Fire. Jundub ibn Abdullah al-Bajali
  12. ‘Every day of Ramadhan Allah beautifies Jannah and says: “Soon my righteous servants will finish their work and will rest in you.” On the last night of Ramadan Allah forgives the sins of His servants.’ They asked: ‘Is the last night Lailatul Qadr?’ He said: ‘No, but the worker is paid when he finishes his work.’ Prophet Muhammad (SAW)
  13. And so in the heart of such a believer is a sort of paradise. That is the paradise that Ibn Taymiyyah, may Allah have mercy on his soul, spoke of when he said: ‘Truly, there is a Heaven in this world, [and] whoever does not enter it, will not enter the Heaven of the next world.’ And in that heaven, complete peace is not something of a moment. It is a state, eternal. Yasmin Mogahed
  14. Our first and true home was Paradise: a land that is both perfect and eternal. So the yearning for that type of life is a part of our being. The problem is that we try to find that here. And so we create ageless creams and cosmetic surgery in a desperate attempt to hold on—in an attempt to mold this world into what it is not, and will never be. Yasmin Mogahed
  15. A caller will call out in Paradise when people enter it: “Indeed may you be healthy and never be sick again, may you live and never die again, may you be young and never grow feeble again, may you enjoy, and never feel sorrow and regret again.” Prophet Muhammad (SAW)
