Imagine the most joyous sensations, bodily as well as emotional, accessible to man : indescribable beauty, love physical and spiritual, consciousness of fulfillment, perfect peace and harmony; and imagine these sensations intensified beyond anything imaginable in this world –and at the same time entirely different from anything imaginable : and you have an inkling, however, vague, of what is meant by “paradise”
and on the other hand : “Imagine the greatest suffering, bodily as well as spiritual, which man may experience : burning by fire, utter loneliness and bitter desolation, the torment of neither living nor dying; and imagine this pain, this darkness and this despair intensified beyond anything imaginable in this world – and at the same time entirely different from anything imaginable: and you will know, however vaguely, what is meant by “hell” (Asad, 1980:991).
Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah – may Allaah have mercy on him – say: “Indeed there is a paradise in this world, whoever doesn’t enter it will not enter the paradise of the Hereafter.”
"O Allah! Your forgiveness is wider than the width of heavens and I have more hope in your mercy than in my own deeds."
