I am not a religious woman, but I have pictured Paradise.
My parents both died in a car crash when I was fresh out of university. My brother died in 2011.
Sometimes I picture them sitting on a cloud, the way I used to imagine Paradise when I was a little girl, looking down at me from a fluffy marshmallow. Sometimes I picture Heaven as a floating tank, all dark, warm, silent and womblike.
A catholic priest once described Paradise to me as living in the embrace of god eternally, being a part of god. All goodness and peace and tranquility forever. It sounds nice.
One thing I do not imagine is living there eternally with my husband, sharing him with his second “wife” Bimbo, and scores of hoori whom he can fuck hundreds of times every day due to his new found heavenly virility.
Muslim men are promised at least two worldly wives in Paradise, and at least 72 hoori, perpetual virgins, too. He will also have his wives from earth, and they will be beautiful and virgins again. He will have the virility of a hundred men so he can spend eternity fucking all these women. He will also be allowed to eat and drink what ever he wants, even GT:s, and he won’t ever have to fart or take a crap again. So he doesn’t even have to pause all this fucking to do that.
A man will have intercourse in Paradise with his wives from among al-hoor al-‘iyn and his wives from among the people of this world, if they enter Paradise with him. A man will be given the strength of a hundred men to eat, drink, feel desire and have sexual intercourse. It was narrated from Anas (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The believer in Paradise will be given such and such strength for sexual intercourse.” He was asked, “O Messenger of Allaah, will he really be able to do that?” He said, “He will be given the strength of one hundred (men).” (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, no. 2459. He said, (it is) saheeh ghareeb).
It was narrated from Zayd ibn Arqam that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “A man among the people of Paradise will be given the strength of a hundred men for eating, drinking, desire and sexual intercourse. A man among the Jews said, ‘The one who eats or drinks needs to excrete!’ The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said to him: ‘The excretion of any one of them will be in the form of sweat which comes out through his skin, then his stomach will reduce in size again.’” (Narrated by Ahmad, no. 18509; al-Daarimi, no. 2704)
“Verily, the dwellers of Paradise, that Day, will be busy in joyful things” [Yaa-Seen 36:55]they said, (it means) they will be busy deflowering virgins.
What about women?
Well, we get to share our husbands will all these other women for ever and ever. We will be beautiful so we please our husbands more than now. And we will be virgins over and over so I suppose all this lovemaking will be sheer hell. And more?
Ibn Katheer said: “ they (the women of Jannah) lower their gaze and avoid looking at men other than their husbands, so they do not think that there is anything in Paradise that is more handsome than their husbands.
We will be granted the blessing to be blind to our husband’s imperfections and we will be rid of jealousy. So we will not cry while he keeps fucking other women for eternity, but will look peaceful and blissful so he will want to fuck us too.
That’s it. That’s Jannah – Paradise – for you.
Still somebody who believes this picture of Paradise wasn’t invented by Beavis and Butthead?
I do find it astonishing that men who claim this to be Paradise, don’t realize that they diminish god, any god, by stating that this would be the kind of Heaven a god would want for people. It’s offensive to paint such a puerile picture of Eternity and claim that this is what god has created.
