Surah ‘Al-‘Baqarah (The Cow) – Chapter – 2)
Stage – 1, Verse – 25b of 286, Section – 3 of 40 (Part - 1)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
25b. As often as they are regaled with food of the fruit thereof, they say: This is what was given us aforetime and it is given to them in resemblance. There for them are pure companions and therein they abide for ever.
25b. Kullamaa ruziquu minhaa min-samaratir-rizqan, qaaluu haazallazii ruziqnaa min-qablu, wa ‘utuu bihii mutashaabihaa. Wa lahum fiihaaa ‘azwaa-jum-mutah-harah, wa hum fiihaa khaaliduun.
Mutah-haratun – (the pure). It aims the companions (wives/husbands) favored to every person in the Paradise, they will be pure and chaste in all respect. They will be far from the filth of body and soul.
Khaaliduuna – (will abide for ever). This word has been derived from khaluud, which means “to abide for ever”, that is to say; they will never be removed from the Paradise. So, one name of the Paradise is Jannat Khuld.
In this verse, Allah Almighty has explained with more detail about the rewards; which will be given to the Believers and Pious people. Usually, which things are essential for living a good life, an individual desires; a fine and well furnished house, delicious and tasteful meals and cold for eating and drinking respectively, pure, beautiful and pious companion, rest and comfort for ever; that is to say; there must be no fear of ending and destruction of such things, which he/she possesses . Moreover, he/she would have faith that oneself will reap advantage always from these things.
God Almighty has promised with the Believers for the things like these i.e. the people, who will believe, during this worldly life time, in Oneness of God Almighty, His Prophets/Messengers and His Angels (Peace be upon Them), His Holy Scriptures, being alive again on the Day of Resurrection, good or bad fate from Allah Almighty, and who will act upon His commands and the Sayings of His last Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam), they will be admitted in such Paradise, after the life of this world, where they will live in the beautiful Gardens. They will be served with such different kinds of fruit, which, in shape will be like the fruit of this world but by taste, relish and fragrance, those will be much superior to the fruit of this world.
Because, the Paradise is a home of every kind of material and spiritual pleasures and comforts, therefore, it will be their good fortune that their companions will be pure, clean and chaste. There, they will have never any fear that any of their pleasures or comfort will be lessened a little or withdrawn from them. But God Almighty will assure them that these all favors are permanent, durable and forever. They are lucky, who are rightful owners of that Paradise. Allah Almighty bless all of us with such kind of Belief.
