Free Quran Chapter 88: Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah)

Learn from GOD about the allegories of paradise, and that you should study how things are created. Hell will be overwhelming. All descriptions are allegorical. But we you use these allegories to help you imagine how Hell will feel like. For example: It is annoying when people scream, and when there is a lot of noise. Well, Hell will be constant screaming and noise that never ends, and there is no way to shut it out. It hurts to drink tea or soup that is too hot, right? Well, Hell will be constantly burning your insides, and there is no way to stop drinking or drink cold water.

Paradise is also described in allegories, these help us imagine how it will be like. For example, no nonsense is heard. How amazing is that??? I personally can’t bare listening to nonsense, it makes me lose energy. So imagine a world where there is no bullshit? Yes please! Springs flows? Imagine that, in our world we have to purify the water before we can drink it, it is a lot of work just for some water. Paradise will be the feeling of not having to work for basics needs. Luxurious furnishings! Isn’t it annoying when you sit down on a sofa or chair and you feel annoyed at how the clothes put pressure on your skin. It’s a very small annoyance, but even that very tiny annoyance will be completely gone. Paradise is the feeling of having absolutely nothing to complain about, just plain perfection. Imagine the feeling of a world where not a single atom is out of place.
