As we have seen throughout this book, Allah describes the beauties in Paradise that will be presented to those Muslims who comply with the Qur’an’s morality while living in this world. Beautiful mansions with rivers flowing under them, constantly flowing springs, villas, foods and drinks, and jewels will be granted to them in return for their moral excellence. Paradise is the eternal life that Muslims always long to attain:
“Enter Paradise, you and your wives, delighting in your joy.” Platters and cups of gold will be passed around among them, and they will have there all that their hearts desire and in which their eyes find delight. You will remain in it timelessly, forever. That is Paradise you will inherit for what you did. There will be many fruits in it for you to eat. (Surat az-Zukhruf: 70-73)
The Golden Age is such a beautiful life granted to Muslims in this world. This period is, as our Prophet (saas) said, an image of Paradise. It is a blessing from Allah. With its abundance, as well as its peaceful and comfortable environment, it is a period that every servant of faith who devotes his or her life to Allah would like to attain, and a great reward.
For all Muslims, it is no doubt a great honor to be given the good news of this period.
