Green Gardens in Pairs!!!

27th of Rabi’ Al-Awwal

Suuratul Rahmaan Verses 46 and 47.

 وَلِمَنْ خَافَ مَقَامَ رَبِّهِۦ جَنَّتَانِ ﴿٤٦﴾ فَبِأَىِّ ءَالَآءِ رَبِّكُمَا تُكَذِّبَانِ ﴿٤٧

46. But for him who fears the standing before his Lord, there will be two Gardens (i.e. in Paradise). 47. Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?

***

Tafsir Ibn Kathir Volume 9, Page 395.

Allah the Exalted said,

﴿وَلِمَنْ خَافَ مَقَامَ رَبِّهِ﴾

“But for him who fears the standing before his Lord” (on the Day of Resurrection)

﴿وَنَهَى النَّفْسَ عَنِ الْهَوَى﴾

“And restrained himself from the desires” (79:40),

And does not indulge nor prefer this worldly life. He who knows that the Hereafter is better and more lasting, so he fulfills what his Lord ordered him and stays away from His prohibitions, then he will earn two gardens from his Lord on the Day of Resurrection. Al-Bukhari recorded that `Abdullah bin Qays said that the Messenger of Allah said,

«جَنَّتَانِ مِنْ فِضَّةٍ آنِيَتُهُمَا وَمَا فِيهِمَا، وَجَنَّتَانِ مِنْ ذَهَبٍ آنِيَتُهُمَا وَمَا فِيهِمَا، وَمَا بَيْنَ الْقَوْمِ وَبَيْنَ أَنْ يَنْظُرُوا إِلَى رَبِّهِمْ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ إِلَّا رِدَاءُ الْكِبْرِيَاءِ عَلَى وَجْهِهِ فِي جَنَّةِ عَدْن»

“There are two gardens made of silver — their vessels and all that they contain. And there are two gardens made of gold — their vessels and all that they contain. And nothing stands between the people in the `Adn Garden and looking at their Lord, the Exalted and Most Honored, but the covering of pride before His Face”.

The Group, with the exception of Abu Dawud, collected this via the Hadith of `Abdul-`Aziz. This Ayah is general and applies to both humans and Jinns, providing proof that those among the Jinns who believe and have Taqwa will enter Paradise, for Allah is reminding the Ath-Thaqalayn of this favor, as He says;

﴿وَلِمَنْ خَافَ مَقَامَ رَبِّهِ جَنَّتَانِ فَبِأَىِّ ءَالاءِ رَبِّكُمَا تُكَذِّبَانِ ﴾

“But for him who fears the standing before his Lord, there will be two Gardens. Then which of the blessings of your Lord will you both deny”

Then He describes these two gardens, by saying,

﴿ذَوَاتَآ أَفْنَانٍ ﴾

“With Afnan”

Their trees have beautiful young branches that hold and produce every type of ripened beautiful fruit,

Countless Favors!!!

14th of Rabi’ Al-Awwal

Suuratul – Nahl Verse 18

وَإِن تَعُدُّوا۟ نِعْمَةَ ٱللَّـهِ لَا تُحْصُوهَآ ۗ إِنَّ ٱللَّـهَ لَغَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ ﴿١٨

18. And if you would count the graces of Allah, never could you be able to count them. Truly! Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

***

Tafsir Ibn Kathir Volume 5.

Then Allah tells us of His greatness, and that worship should be directed to Him alone, not to any of the idols which do not create but are rather themselves created. Thus He says

﴿أَفَمَن يَخْلُقُ كَمَن لاَّ يَخْلُقُ أَفَلا تَذَكَّرُونَ ﴾

“Is then He, Who creates, the same as one who does not create, Will you not then reflect?”

Then He shows His servants some of the many blessings He granted for them, and the many kinds of things that He has done for them.

He says;

﴿وَإِن تَعُدُّواْ نِعْمَةَ اللَّهِ لاَ تُحْصُوهَآ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَغَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ ﴾

“And if you would try to count the favors of Allah, you would never be able to count them. Truly, Allah is Forgiving, Most Merciful”

Meaning that He pardons and forgives them. If He were to ask you to thank Him for all of His blessings, you would not be able to do so, and if He were to command you to do so, you would be incapable of it. If He punishes you, He is never unjust in His punishment, but He is Forgiving and Most Merciful, He forgives much and rewards for little. Ibn Jarir said: “It means that Allah is Forgiving when you fail to thank Him properly, if you repent and turn to Him in obedience, and strive to do that which pleases Him. He is Merciful to you and does not punish you if you turn to Him and repent.”

Who provides for You?

Suuratul – Fatir Verse 3.

يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلنَّاسُ ٱذْكُرُوا۟ نِعْمَتَ ٱللَّـهِ عَلَيْكُمْ ۚ هَلْ مِنْ خَـٰلِقٍ غَيْرُ ٱللَّـهِ يَرْزُقُكُم مِّنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ ۚ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ ۖ فَأَنَّىٰ تُؤْفَكُونَ ﴿٣

3. O mankind! Remember the Grace of Allaah upon you! Is there any creator other than Allaah who provides for you from the sky and the earth? La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He). How then are you turning away?

Tafsir Ibn Kathir Volume 8, Page 122.

Allaah shows His servants that they should worship Him Alone, for just as He is Independent in His power of creation and provision, so He should be worshipped Alone with no partners or associates such as idols and false gods. So Allaah says:

﴿لاَ إِلَـهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ فَأَنَّى تُؤْفَكُونَ﴾

(La ilaha illa Huwa. How then are you turning away (from Him)) meaning, `how can you turn away from Him after this has been made clear and this proof has been made obvious, but you still worship idols and false gods’ And Allaah knows best.
