People of Jannah will talk to each other


Allah tells us that the people of Paradise will talk to each other and that they will ask each other about some of the things that went on during their worldly lives.

Allah says: “Then they will turn to one another and question one another. One of them will say: ‘I had a comrade (on the Earth) who used to say: “Do you really believe that when we die and become dust and bones, we shall indeed receive rewards and punishments?”’ He shall say: ‘Would you like to look down?’ He shall look down and see him in the midst of the Fire. He shall say: ‘By Allah! You were little short of bringing me to perdition. Had it not been for the grace of my Lord, I should certainly have been among those brought (there)’.”

[Sûrah al-Sâfât: 50-57] ●

In his commentary on the Qur’ân, Ibn Khathîr discusses these verses, saying:
Allah tells us that the people of Paradise will approach each other and question each other about their lives on the Earth, discussing how they used to be and the difficulties that they used to face.

This will be their topic of discussion
– while they take drinks and meet together,
– socializing and reclining on couches,
– while servants attend to them,
– bringing them all goodness in the form of food,
– drink and apparel,
– the likes of which no one has ever before seen,
– heard, or even imagined.

[Tafsîr Ibn Khathîr] ●

Allah says: “And those who believe and whose families follow them in faith, We shall reunite them with their families; nor shall we deprive them (of the fruit) of aught of their works: Each individual is in pledge for his deeds.”

[Sûrah al-Tûr: 21] ●

In this verse Allah says that He will bless the believing family members that he shall bring them together in Paradise. This will take place by raising the status in Paradise of the children who fell short of their parents’ status to the levels in Paradise attained by their parents. This is by Allah’s immense generosity and favor.

Ibn Kathîr relates the following that Ibn `Abbâs said regarding the above verse:
These are the children of the believers who die on belief. Then, if their fathers attained a higher level in Paradise than they did, they will follow their fathers, and none shall have any of their good deeds reduced.

[Tafsîr Ibn Kathîr] ●

There are several hadîth about the the people of Paradise visiting one another, They are mentioned by Ibn al-Qayyim in Hâdî al-Arwâh ilâ Bilâd al-Afrâh (332-336).
