  |   Quran

English Translation of Al-Quran [22].Surah Al-Hajj [The Pilgrimage] Ayat 23. Truly, Allah will admit those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds, to Gardens underneath which rivers flow (in Paradise), wherein they will be adorned with bracelets of gold and pearls and their garments therein will be of silk. Ayat 24. And they are guided (in this world) unto goodly speech (i.e. Lâ ilaha ill-Allah, Alhamdu illah , recitation of the Qur’an, etc.) and they are guided to the Path of Him (i.e. Allah’s Religion of Islamic Monotheism), Who is Worthy of all praises. [Tafseer] Allah will admit those who believe and work righteous deeds, to Gardens beneath which rivers flow: they shall be adorned therein with bracelets of gold and pearls; and their garments there will be of silk. In Ayat 14 of same Surah, was described the meed of the Righteous as compared with the time-servers and those who worshipped false gods here we have the case of those who were persecuted, abused, prevented from entering the Kabah and deprived of all that makes life smooth, agreeable, and comfortable. For them the meed is described in metaphors that negative all these afflictions: costly adornments (as against being stripped of home and property), purity of speech (as against the abuse they received), the Path of the Lord of Praise (as against the fierce and malignant persecution to which they were subjected). For they have been guided (in this life) to the purest of speeches; they have been guided to the Path of Him Who is Worthy of (all) Praise.
