Way To Paradise




I had read an article on Paradise (jannah) recently... the descriptions of jannah is indeed so very lovely. Here is a verse from the Quran:
The description of Paradise which the Muttaqûn (pious) have been promised (is that) in it are rivers of water the taste and smell of which are not changed, rivers of milk of which the taste never changes, rivers of wine delicious to those who drink; and rivers of clarified honey (clear and pure) therein for them is every kind of fruit; and forgiveness from their Lord. (Are these) like those who shall dwell for ever in the Fire, and be given, to drink, boiling water, so that it cuts up their bowels? (47:15)
Really... I truly wish to go there. A place devoid of anger, hurt and cruelty. A place filled with believers, from the time of the beginning till the end of time. Most importantly, a place where the Muttaqun is able to meet His Lord and His Prophet PBUH.

But have I done enough to gain the ticket to enter paradise? Have I strived hard enough to gain Allah's pleasure, enabling me to pass through the bridges of 'sirat' and go into the paradise? Is my good deeds sincere enough, and is my bad deeds forgiven by Allah, so that my scale (mizan) will weigh to my favour?

Scared? Yes, I am. For there is a possibility that i might not taste the pleasures of Jannah. Yet, I trust that Allah never turn down His servants who tried their best to obtain His pleasure. Hence, as long as I am try and keep trying to do what He pleases, and be a good servant, I hope He will count me in as a Mu'min and muttaqin. Keep going, holding on to al-Quran and Sunnah as the guidebook in this complicated life... may He accept me as an obedient servant to Him...

Allâh has promised the believers -men and women, - Gardens under which rivers flow to dwell therein forever, and beautiful mansions in Gardens of 'Adn (Eden Paradise). But the greatest bliss is the Good Pleasure of Allâh. That is the supreme success.


Keep trying till the end!
May Allah bless all of us...
and may we attain His pleasure and Paradise at the end of the journey..
