    Why are there physical pleasures in Jannah?

    Report bad ads?

    Assalaam to all bro.s& sis.s,

    I've always wondered why there are physical pleasures in jannah like drinking,eating etc.
    Isn't spiritual pleasure enough? Can someone explain this?

    Wa alaikkum salaam...

    I hope no one is gonna compell you to have physical pleasure...in the heaven...do you think so?
    If you feel spiritual pleasure is enough... you will get that alone...If you wish to drink..you will drink.
    All i want to say is ...you will get whateva you wish in there..and u will wish only what ALLAH has allowed to wish.

    But If your is question is...
    why cant ALLAH give us spiritual pleasure alone... and why is that HE he has mentioned about the physical pleasures.
    Answer : Its beyond our (creation's) knowledge.

    The Messenger (peace and blessings be unto him) said, “When the inhabitants of Paradise enter Paradise, Allah will say to them, ‘Do you want Me to give you anything more?’ They will reply, ‘Have You not made our faces bright? Have You not brought us into Paradise and moved us from Hell?’ Allah will then remove the Veil and they will feel that they have not been awarded anything dearer to them than looking at their Lord.”

    [Sahih Muslim]

    If you begin to live life relating to the God who is all around you, every moment becomes a prayer.

    Re: Why are there physical pleasures in Jannah?

    There is nothing intrinsically wrong with physical pleasures. Allah Ta'aala has designed humans such that they seek them. However, this world is a test for us to see who obeys Allah's commands and who goes against them. And to test us, he has forbidden us certain things. Whats actually wrong here is disobeying Allah and not wanting to seek those pleasures. And Jannat is a reward for good deeds. Thats why Allah Ta'aala has filled it with all kinds of good stuff.
    Spiritual and Physical pleasures are supposed to be two different things. I dont think they are meant to substitute for each other.

    Good question. I wondered the same. In Christianity there are so many different views of what heaven is supposed to be like. I thought this bishops idea that righteous humans are going to be running around helping to build a new world order was interesting though. Check it out here.

    Re: Why are there physical pleasures in Jannah?

    Some days I suspect that the reason for the physical pleasures in Jannah to be there is so that we can see the greater value of the spiritual pleasures.

    Re: Why are there physical pleasures in Jannah?



    Paradise is a place where all human desires come true; it is a place just to enjoy and live in sheer bliss forever, thus physical pleasures will be there too, but it is said that the inhabitants of paradise will utter the praises of ALlah with every breath [there will be no effort [hardship] on their part, but it will just come out naturally] thus the spiritual will go hand in hand with the physical

    the Prophet [saw] showed us that there is nothing wrong in physical pleausres as long as they are within the limits ALlah has allowed, and the limits in paradise will be broadened immensely, in order that people can reap the reward of their sacrfice on earth

    Re: Why are there physical pleasures in Jannah?

    Assalaam Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,

    Dear Brother! Scholar Bediuzzaman Said Nursi explains this fact in Risale-i Nur:

    " Because, just as in relation to water, air, and light, earth is dense and dark, but since it is the source and means of all the varieties of Divine artefacts, in meaning it rises above the other elements; and just as in regard to the mystery of its comprehensiveness and on condition it is purified, the human soul, which is also dense, rises above all the other human subtle faculties; so too corporeality is the richest and most comprehensive and all-embracing mirror to the manifestation of the Divine Names. All the tools and instruments for measuring the contents of the treasuries of mercy and reckoning their balances lie in corporeality. For example, if the sense of taste in the tongue was not the source of scales to the number of the sorts of foods and their pleasures, it could not experience them all and recognize them, and taste and weigh them up. Also, the instruments for experiencing and knowing the manifestations of most of the Divine Names, and tasting and recognizing them, again lie in corporeality. And the faculties for experiencing all the infinitely various pleasures are also in corporeality.
    As is proved in the Eleventh Word, it is understood clearly from the disposition of the universe and man’s comprehensiveness that the universe’s Maker wants to make known all the treasuries of His mercy, and all the manifestations of His Names, and to make experienced all the varieties of His bounties. The abode of bliss, therefore, which is a vast pool formed from the flood of the universe and a great exhibition of the textiles woven on the loom of the universe and an everlasting store of the crops produced in the arable field of this world, will resemble the universe to a degree. And it will preserve all its fundamental matters, both corporeal and spiritual. Its All-Wise Maker, the Most Compassionate One, will also give as recompense for the duties of the physical tools and instruments, pleasures worthy of them; and to His servants, as a wage and reward for the particular worship of each. Otherwise a situation would occur that was contrary to His wisdom, justice, and mercy, which is in no way fitting for the beauty of His mercy and perfection of His justice, and in no way compatible with them."

    Re: Why are there physical pleasures in Jannah?

    The son of Adam is both a physical as well as a spiritual being. In Jannah, may Allah grant us all entrance into it, all aspects of the human will be satisfied, the same way that in Nar, may Allah save us all from it, all aspects of the human will be punished. certainly spiritual pleasure will be greater than the physical, since the greatest pleasure the citizens of Jannah will feel is seeing their Lord, the Most High. Likewise in Nar, its inhabitant's greatest pain could be the pains of regret rather than the physical pain, even though it is nothing light.

    That might certainly be the case bro, the pleasures arrived from the physical when followed by Alhamdulillah will certainly enhance both. Allah(swt) knows best.

    Re: Why are there physical pleasures in Jannah?

    I also wonder why there would be a need for eating in Jannah or Heaven. Were there no pain, there would be no hunger, there would be no purpose for eating. However, if it were that we wouldn't forget our lives here on Earth, we would remember the pleasures of foods, etc. and it could be like, a token to the life we survived.


    Also, a new question just popped into my head: Would any food in Jannah be vegan?

    Food will not be eaten in Paradise because of need but ONLY for pure pleasure as we can have anything we want in Paradise as an eternal reward for those who abstained from the false and deceptive desires of this world for the pleasure of God. For this world is a prison for the believer and death is the release and Paradise is freedom.
