Hadith Explanation

The Pebbles of Paradise are Pearls and Sapphires

The Sahabah asked the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) about the buildings of Jannah and he replied: “Bricks of gold and silver. Its mortar is fragrant musk. Its pebbles are pearls and sapphires. Its soil is saffron. Whoever enters it will live in luxury and happiness and will never experience any hardship or misery; he will live forever and never die. Their clothes will never wear out and their youth will never fade.” [Ahmad, Tirmidhi]

Just try to imagine a home that belongs to you, made of delicate bricks of gold and silver.

A perfume binds the bricks together, not grey mortar!

The driveway leading to your house isn’t full of grey pebbles but lustrous pearls and clear dark blue sapphires. Imagine walking on them as you lead your guests into your new home. They don’t tarnish, break, get dirty or messed up with use! It looks like a brand new driveway every time.

Imagine soil that is sweet smelling saffron… what kind of flowers would grow out of it…
