GARDENS BENEATH WHICH RIVERS FLOW

 


"And give glad tidings to those who believe and do righteous deeds, that their portion is Gardens, beneath which rivers flow. Every time they are fed with fruits from it, they say: "This is what we were fed with before," for they are given things in similitude and they have therein companions - spouses pure (and holy); and they abide therein (for ever)"
