Heaven in Islam, described in the Qur'an
as an eternal afterlife of peace and bliss, where the faithful and righteous are rewarded. They will be restful in the presence of God, in "gardens beneath which rivers flow." Jannah
comes from an Arabic word which means "to cover or hide something." Heaven, therefore, is a place which is unseen to us.
The Quran describes that Jannah is "...a beautiful place of final return – a garden of eternity, whose doors will always be open to them" (Qur'an 38:49-50). Read more about how the Quran describes Jannah.
People who enter Jannah "...will say, ‘Praise be to Allah who has removed from us (all) sorrow, for our Lord is indeed Oft–Forgiving, appreciative; who has settled us in the house of lasting residence out of His bounty. No toil nor sense of weariness shall touch us therein" (Quran 35:34-35).
Also Known As: Heaven, Paradise, the Garden
