Heaven or Paradise?

But those who believe and work deeds of righteousness – to them shall We give a Home in Heaven, lofty mansions beneath which flow rivers. [Surah 29:58]

In Gardens of Felicity, facing each other on raised couches. Round will be passed to them a Cup from a clear-flowing fountain, Crystal-white, of a taste delicious to those who drink. Free from headlines; nor will they suffer intoxication. And besides them will be chaste women [virgins], restraining their glances, with big eyes (of wonder and beauty). [Surah 37:48]

Gardens of Eternity, whose doors will (ever) be open to them; Therein will they recline (at ease): Therein can they call (at pleasure) for fruit in abundance, and (delicious) drink; And beside them will be chaste women restraining their glances, (companions) of equal age. [Surah 38:50-52]

Among Gardens and Springs, dressed in fine silk and in rich brocade, they will face each other. ; and We shall join them to Companions with beautiful, big, and lustrous eyes. [“Surah 44:52-54]

As to the Righteous, they will be in Gardens, and in Happiness. “Eat and drink ye, with profit and health, because of your (good) deeds.” They will recline (with ease) on couches (of dignity) arranged in ranks; and We shall join them to maidens with beautiful big and lustrous eyes. [Surah 52:17-20]

In them will be (maidens), chaste, restraining their glances, whom no man or Jinn before them has touched. [Surah 55:56]

And on couches (of Dignity), raised high. We have created (their Companions) of special creation. And made them virgin-pure (and undefiled) – Loving (by nature), equal in age. [Surah 56:34-37]

Surely, for the Righteous there will be a fulfillment of (the Heart’s) desires; Gardens enclosed, and Grapevines; Maidens of Equal Age. [Surah 78:31-33]

 

 

YAHWEH

 

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. 2In my Father’s house are many rooms [mansions]; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4You know the way to the place where I am going.” [John 14:1-4]

So will it be with the resurrection of the dead…. it is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. [I Corinthians 15:42, 44]

After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. Therefore, they are before the throne of God and serve him day and night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them. Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat upon them, nor any scorching heat. For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. [Revelation 7:9,15-17]

After this I heard what sounded like the roar of a great multitude in heaven shouting: “Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God, “Praise our God, all you his servants, you who fear him, both small and great!”

Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: “Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns. 7Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! [Revelation 19:1, 5-7]
