The Delights of the People of Paradise: The Superiority of Paradise Over the Pleasures of This World (continued) 2⃣ The Hereafter is also better from the perspective of quality.

The Springs of Paradise In Paradise there are many springs that provide drinks of different tastes: ” Truly al-Muttaqoon [the pious and righteous] will be amidst Gardens and Water-springs ” [15:45] ” Verily al-Muttaqoon shall be amidst shades and springs .” [77:41] Concerning the two Gardens which Allah (Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala) has prepared for those who fear their Rabb, Allah (Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala) said, ” In them [both] will be two springs flowing [free]. ” [55:50] And concerning the two Gardens beneath them, He said, ” In them [both] will be two springs gushing forth water.” [55:66] In Paradise there are two springs from which al-Muqarraboon will drink pure and undiluted, whilst the Abraar will
