Paradise, the Greatest and Everlasting Bounty
The Lord of the universe has reserved a place in the Hereafter for those people who leave this world with fear of God in their heart. There, God has kept innumerable and unimaginably tasteful things for the righteous befitting that highest host. To get an idea of those comforts, tastes and pleasures of that place in the Hereafter is as difficult for the residents of this world now as are the things in this world for an unborn child.
That is why, it is mentioned in the Holy Quran :
So no soul knows what is hidden for them of that which will refresh the eyes; a reward for what they did. (32:17) It is also said as a general hint about the heavenly bounties :
They have therein what they wish and with Us is more yet. (50:35)
It means, in paradise, there are all those things, which they (the people of paradise) will desire and what is with Us is even more than what they can wish.
At yet another place it is said :
They will not hear its faintest sound, and they shall abide in that which their souls long for. (21:102)
