Ice Cream in Jannah

Posted: December 28, 2009 in Ahh moments

Bismillah,

Alhamdulilah, all praise is due to Allah who forgives and shows mercy to mankind. Subhana’Allah, the other day I was telling my mom about tafseer of surah Iklaas by ibn Katheer, and some where in there the narrator mentions of the anger Allah has for those who associate partners with Him, but subhana’Allah if we look around us, Allah azza wa jala continues to provide for these people, wealth, prosperity, safety, because…because subhana’Allah He is Ar-Rahman and Ar-Raheem, in that His mercy-His Rahma encompasses those who disbelieve, it surrounds all of humanity! But of His Ar-Raheem , this is exclusive to the Muslims, in that it is that of eman, safety in both this life and the hereafter. May Allah make us of those who He is pleased with in this life and in the hereafter.

AD: ” We get ice cream too?”

Me: ” umm yeah, whatever your heart wants”

Subhana’Allah, those are the questions I get when teaching my sis kids, and indeed little things like that really make my day. I love the topic of jannah and I cannot never ever get tired of talking about it. A couple years ago, I discovered shaykh Muhammed Alshareef’s lecture of “Have ever tasted Jannah” and ever since then, every year at halaqah I would go over it, and every time my heart would get attached to it and I would learn something new and my eman would sore. Why? Because in life we go through events, situations, from day to day things, that indeed we needed to be reminded always..what is my goal? where am I going? because this life is temporary and the destination is to the hereafter. And subhana’Allah I am always also reminded of what I heard once, that to the companions..to the companions jannah was so real to them, and they had this keen desire to go there. And subhana’Allah how I thought of this, that when you really know whats in store for you, what your getting for your trails and tribulations, then indeed you would more forthcoming in striving, being patient, and really wanting that ultimate gift from Allah, jannah! All of us are working toward something, some are working in a smart and strategic way, and I ask Allah azza wa jala to make us steadfast in what is most pleasing to Him, and enter us into Jannah without holding us into account for our bad deeds. Alhamdulilah.

Till next time, may we meet in Al-Firdous where we may eat of ice cream and be granted whatever else we seek.

سَابِقُوا إِلَى مَغْفِرَةٍ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ وَجَنَّةٍ عَرْضُهَا كَعَرْضِ السَّمَاء وَالْأَرْضِ أُعِدَّتْ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا بِاللَّهِ وَرُسُلِهِ ذَلِكَ فَضْلُ اللَّهِ يُؤْتِيهِ مَن يَشَاء وَاللَّهُ ذُو الْفَضْلِ

Sabiqoo ila maghfiratin min rabbikum wajannatin AAarduha kaAAardi alssamai waalardi oAAiddat lillatheena amanoo biAllahi warusulihi thalika fadlu Allahi yuteehi man yashao waAllahu thoo alfadli alAAatheemi

57:21 Be ye foremost (in seeking) Forgiveness from your Lord, and a Garden (of Bliss), the width whereof is as the width of heaven and earth, prepared for those who believe in Allah and His apostles: that is the Grace of Allah, which He bestows on whom he pleases: and Allah is the Lord of Grace abounding.
