Tafseer Al-Baqarah Ayah 25

2

August 17, 2014 by Saleha Waqar

وَبَشِّرِ الَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ وَعَمِلُواْ الصَّـلِحَاتِ أَنَّ لَهُمْ جَنَّـتٍ تَجْرِى مِن تَحْتِهَا الأَنْهَـرُ كُلَّمَا رُزِقُواْ مِنْهَا مِن ثَمَرَةٍ رِّزْقاً قَالُواْ هَـذَا الَّذِى رُزِقْنَا مِن قَبْلُ وَأُتُواْ بِهِ مُتَشَـبِهاً وَلَهُمْ فِيهَآ أَزْوَجٌ مُّطَهَّرَةٌ وَهُمْ فِيهَا خَـلِدُونَ

And give good tidings to those who believe and do righteous deeds that they will have gardens [in Paradise] beneath which rivers flow. Whenever they are provided with a provision of fruit therefrom, they will say, “This is what we were provided with before.” And it is given to them in likeness. And they will have therein purified spouses, and they will abide therein eternally.

Rewards of the Righteous Believers:

After mentioning the torment that Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala has prepared for His miserable enemies who disbelieve in Him and in His Messengers, He mentions the condition of His happy, loyal friends who believe in Him and in His Messengers, adhere to the faith and perform the good deeds. Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala mentions the miserable and then the happy, or vice versa.

Allah Al-Mighty said,

وَبَشِّرِ الَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ وَعَمِلُواْ الصَّـلِحَاتِ أَنَّ لَهُمْ جَنَّـتٍ تَجْرِى مِن تَحْتِهَا الأَنْهَـرُ

And give good tidings to those who believe and do righteous deeds that they will have gardens [in Paradise] beneath which rivers flow.

Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala stated that Paradise has rivers that run beneath it, meaning, underneath its trees and rooms. From Hadiths it is learned that the rivers of Paradise do not run in valleys, and that the banks of Al-Kawthar (the Prophet’s lake in Paradise) are made of domes of hollow pearls, the sand of Paradise is made of scented musk while its stones are made from pearls and jewels. We ask Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala to grant Paradise to us, for verily, He is the Most Beneficent, Most Gracious.

What are the necessary conditions for the righteous deeds to be accepted?

Every righteous deed must meet two conditions to be accepted by Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala.

  • Sincerity: This is achieved when the righteous deeds are for the sake of Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala
  • Following the Prophet salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam : This is achieved when the righteous deeds are done exactly as prescribed by the prophet salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam . If these two conditions are met, Allah the Ar-Rahman, will accept the righteous deed. In this case, the doer will deserve the reward in this life and in the Hereafter as promised by Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala.

    And also Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala said in surah Taha, (Ayah 75 &76), translated as,

    “But whoever come to Him as believer, and has done righteous good deeds, for such are the  high ranks (in the Hereafter), and Paradise under which rivers flow, wherein they will abide  forever…”

The similarity between the Fruits of Paradise

Allah said next,

كُلَّمَا رُزِقُواْ مِنْهَا مِن ثَمَرَةٍ رِّزْقاً قَالُواْ هَـذَا الَّذِى رُزِقْنَا مِن قَبْلُ

Whenever they are provided with a provision of fruit therefrom, they will say, “This is what we were provided with before.”

It is reported that Yahya bin Abi Kathir said, “The grass of Paradise is made of saffron, and its hills from musk and the boys of everlasting youth will serve the believers with fruits which they will eat. They will then be brought similar fruits, and the people of Paradise will comment, `This is the same as what you have just brought us.’ The boys will say to them, `Eat, for the color is the same, but the taste is different. Hence Allah’s next statement is

وَأُتُواْ بِهِ مُتَشَـبِهاً

And it is given to them in likeness.

They are similar to the fruits of this life, but the fruits of Paradise taste better.

The Spouses of the People of Paradise are Pure:

Allah said,

وَلَهُمْ فِيهَآ أَزْوَجٌ مُّطَهَّرَةٌ

“And they will have therein purified spouses”, means they will be purified from filth, impurity and sin.

وَهُمْ فِيهَا خَـلِدُونَ

“And they will abide therein forever” meaning ultimate happiness, for the believers will enjoy everlasting delight, safe from death and disruption of their bliss, for it never ends or ceases.

We ask Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala to make us among these believers, for He is the Most Generous, Most Kind and Most merciful.
