Jannah (Part 8)

The Delights of the People of Paradise: The Clothing, Jewellery and Incense-Burners Of the People of Paradise

The people of Paradise will wear the most luxurious clothes, amongst other things, garments of silk and bracelets of gold, silver and pearls. Allah (Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala) says:

And their recompense will be Paradise, and silken garments, because they were patient.” [76:12]

“... wherein they will be adorned with bracelets of gold and pearls, and their garments will be of silk.” [ 22:23]

“... They will be adorned with bracelets of silver, and their Rabb will give them a pure drink.” [76:21]

Their clothes will be colourful, including garments of green silk and brocade:

“.. They will be adorned therein with bracelets of gold, and they will wear green garments of fine silk and heavy brocade. They will recline therein on raised thrones. How good the recompense! How beautiful a couch to recline on.” [ 18:31]

“Their garments will be of fine green silk, and gold embroidery. They will be adorned with bracelets of silver..” [76:21]

Their clothing will be far superior to any man-made garment. al-Barraa ibn ‘Aadhib said, “A silken garment was brought to the Messenger (Salallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam) and we began to admire its beauty and softness.” The Messenger of Allah (Salallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam) said, “ The handkerchiefs of Sa’d ibn Mu’aadh are better than this. “ [al-Bukhaari, Kitaab Bid’ al-Khalq, Baab Maa Jaa’a fi Sifat al-Jannah wan-Naar, Fath al-Baari, 6/319]

The Prophet (Salallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam) also told us that the people of Paradise will have combs of gold and silver, and that they will perfume themselves with ‘Ud at-Teeb, even though the scent of musk will be emanating from their pure bodies. al-Bukhaari narrates from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet (Salallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam) said of those who will enter Paradise:

” Their vessels will be of gold and silver, their combs will be of gold and the coals of their incense-burners will be of aloe-wood [Abul-Yaman said, “of ‘Ud at-Teeb] and their sweat will be musk.” [al-Bukhaari, Kitaab Bid’ al-Khalq, Baab Maa Jaa’a fi Sifat al-Jannah wan-Naar, Fath al-Baari, 6/319]

Their jewellery will include crowns. at-Tirmidhi and Ibn Maajah report from al-Miqdaam ibn Ma’d Yakrib that among the honours bestowed upon the martyr will be: “.. there will be placed upon his head a crown of dignity, one ruby of which is better than this world and all that is in it .” [Mishkaat al-Masaabeeh, 3/358, no. 3834, Saheeh Muslim, saheeh]

The clothing and jewellery of the people of Paradise will never wear out or fade. Muslim reports from Abu Hurayrah (Radiallaahu Anhu) that the Prophet (Salallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam) said, ” Whoever enters Paradise is blessed, and will never be miserable, his clothes will never wear out and his youth will never fade away .” [Saheeh Muslim, Kitaab al-Jannah, Baab fi Dawam Na’eem al-Jannah, 4/2181, no. 2836]
