Some so called modern Islamic apologists often try to fool the
western infidels that Islam is a very simple religion and Islam
never lures Muslims with erotic heavenly pleasures. Nothing could be
furthest from the truth then this ridiculous claim of Islamists.
Let's examine very closely the facts about Islamic heaven.
If we research on the heavens of world's five famous religions this is what we can learn: Both Judaism and Christianity talk about heaven but do not describe what is in there! Hinduism talks about heaven and give some earthly material pleasures but does not go any further. Buddhism does not believe in after-life, and do not have any hell or heaven. They believe hell and heaven exists on this earth.
But Islam emphatically describes many forms of heavens (at least 8 of them with various status/classes) with plenty of earthly greed's and lusting/erotic pleasures which not many human beings (made of soil) can refuse to get it. Muslims devoutly pray at least five times (some pray even 10 times) a day, visit Mekka and fawns Pirs and Darbishes (Saints) just to get the ultimate ticket for those lustful happiness of heavens.
In my childhood I asked our Huzur (Imam of the Mosque) what exactly will be the likes of heavenly rewards from Allah for which all Muslims are fawning Allah by five times prayers per day, and fasting for one month. The Imam shaheb replied: "after your death you will be resurrected again as an healthy young man of 25 year old. There in the heaven you will be given beautiful Houris/Gillman, wine, and plenty of foods to eat. You will stay young for ever and death, disease will never come near you again." Folks, all those Islamic Mullahs, Maoulanas, all those Jihadis of Kashmir, Palestine, Osama-Bin-Laden's terrorist gang, and all other gullible Muslims ardently believe just that.
Islamic Allah and Prophet Muhammad frequently promised believers of Islam with lustful heavens and erotic pleasures of various kinds which we shall encounter later in this essay. Holy Quran got hundreds of such verses, and myriad's of Sahih Hadiths dealing Houris and wine and sex for those pious Muslims. Truth of the matter is myth (superstitions), sex and violence are the main pillars of Islam. Below are some samples of divine promises from the Merciful Allah and Compassionate Prophet of Islam.
Quranic verses (Translated by Maolana A. Yousuf Ali) that promises Heaven with Houris, Sex, and Wine for the pious Muslims:
Quran-(52:17-20): "They will recline (with ease) on thrones arranged in ranks. And We shall marry them to Huris (fair females) with wide lovely eyes." "There they shall pass from hand to hand a (wine) cup, free from any Laghw-."
Quran: (37:40-48): -they will sit with bashful, dark-eyed virgins, as chaste as the sheltered eggs of ostriches.
Quran: (44:51-55): Yes and we shall wed them to dark-eyed houris (beautiful virgins).
Quran: (55:56-57): In them will be bashful virgins neither man nor Jinn will have touched before. Then which of the favours of your Lord will you deny?
Quran-(55:72): "Hur (beautiful, fair females) guarded in pavilions;"
Quran: (78:31-32): "As for the righteous, they surely triumph. Their gardens and vineyards and high-bosomed (pointed breast) virgins for companions, truly overflowing cup"
Quran-(78: 33-34):"And young full-breasted (mature) maidens of equal age, and a full cup of wine."
Quran-(55:57-58): "Then which of the blessings of your lord will you both (jinn and men) deny? (In beauty) they are like rubies and coral".
Quran-(56:34-37): " -we created the houris and made them virgins, loving companions for those on the right hand-."
Quran-(55:70-77): " In each there shall be virgins chaste and fair-.dark eyed virgins sheltered in their tents whom neither man or Jinn have touched before-"
Quran-56:22: "And (there will be) Huris with wide, lovely eyes (as wives for the pious)"
Quran-(56: 35-36): "Verily , We have created them (maidens) of special creation. And made them Virgins."
Quran- (55:56): "Wherein both will be Qasirat-ut-Tarf (chaste females restraining their glances, desiring none except their husband) with whom no man or jinni has had tamth before them."
Quran: (2:25): "And give glad tidings to those who believe and do righteous good deeds, that for them will be Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise)---.and they will be given these things in resemblance (i.e., in the same form but different in taste) and they shall have therein Azwajun Muhtahharatun (purified mates and wives) and that they will have abide therein forever".
Quran:(47:15): "The description of Paradise which the Muttaqun have been promised (is that) in it are rivers of water the taste and smell of which are not changed, rivers of milk of which the taste never changes, rivers of wine delicious to those who drink, and rivers of clarified honey---."
Now some Sahih Hadiths
The main themes of the Jihad are: if Jihadi Muslims survive the battle, they secure concubines and plenty of booty, but if they fall (die), they are sure to enter paradise full of houris, wine and living in the most luxurious environment.
TIRMZI, vol. 2 states on page 138: Every man who enters paradise shall be given 72 (seventy-two) houris; no matter at what age he had died, when he is admitted into paradise, he will become a thirty-year-old, and shall not age any further. A man in paradise shall be given virility equal to that of one hundred men.
Ghilman (Young Boys): In sura: (52:24) Allah promises to supply young diamond-sparkling beautiful boys for some inhabitants of Islamic heavens. Some deceitful western living mullahs will argue that these boys are there to serve drinks to the pious inhabitants of the heavens and not for having sex by those Beduin homosexual Jihadi Martyrs. They also will argue that Koran did not specify that these Ghilman (young boys) will be used as sex partners by Martyrs, i.e., it was not said so in the Quran. Well, Koran also did not specify what those Martyrs/pious Muslims suppose to do with the wide-eyed, firmed, swollen breast, white skinned beautiful houris! Your parent gets you married a beautiful young lady, and parents never say what you suppose to do with your wife, do they? Decietful Mullah's logic/excuse that these Ghilman could be there as the waiters just to serve drinks and food does not sound right. I don't think it is the purpose of supplying young boys just to be the waiters. Waiters could be adult person instead of pearl-sparkling everlasting young boys! Is not it folks?
The Sex Market of Heaven (Islamic brothel) according to Ihya Uloom Ed-Din
Allah has arranged for Pious Muslims a non-stop and non-interrupted sex in Islamic heavens because Mullahs will remain busy only with unlimited sex and wine for billions of years to come. These are rewards from the merciful Allah for killing and torturing those enemies of Allah by Mumeen Muslims.
In the Hadiths the Prophet Muhammad gave the believers a final choice of a open sex market in heaven where there will be no limit of the number of sexual partners. Women are in display like open fruit market. Hadith: Al hadiths, Vol. 4, Page-172, No.34: Hozrot Ali (r.a) narrated that the Apostle of Allah said, "There is in paradise an open market wherein there will be no buying or selling, but will consist of men and women. When a man desires a beauty, at once he will have intercourse with them as desired.
In this open sex market of heaven one can easily imagine what type of fun is going to happen there. Say one particular day of heaven-one very pious Muslim (who prayed five times a day and visited Mecca) who has been permitted to the best of Islamic heaven. There one day he decided to visit (out of curiosity) the famous sex market of heaven, and when he reached there, he found out that all his great great grandfathers, grandfather, father, brothers also were there visiting "Islamic Brothel" called heavenly sex market. Now, they all got excited by the paragon beauty of heavenly houris with very swollen breasts, dark eyes and fair skin. The great great grandfather will command all his descendents family members to feel free to enjoy the sweet taste of houris. In that case the great great grandfathers, grandfather, father, brothers-they all will start simultaneous orgy of sexual intercourse right in front of each others. Can you imagine that terrific scenery folks? Allah is really great and merciful indeed!
Now Some Descriptions of Houris from Quran and hadiths
Quran-(78: 33-34) The houris are ever-young full-breasted (mature) maidens of equal age having swelling (protruding/pointed) bosoms, and a full cup of wine."
Quran- (55:56): "Wherein both will be Qasirat-ut-Tarf (chaste females restraining their glances, desiring none except their husband) with whom no man or jinni has had tamth before them."
MISHKAT, (volume three Says on pages 83-97): If a houri looks down from her abode in heaven onto the earth, the whole distance (space) shall be filled with light and fragrance. A houri's face is more radiant than a mirror, and one can see one's image in her cheek. The marrow of her shins is visible to the eyes.
TIRMZI, volume two (p 35-40): A houri is a most beautiful young woman with a transparent body. The marrow of her bones is visible like the interior lines of pearls and rubies. She looks like red wine in a white glass. She is of white color, and free from the routine physical disabilities of an ordinary woman such as menstruation, menopause, urinal and offal discharge, child bearing and the related pollution. A houri is a girl of tender age, having large breasts which are round (pointed), and not inclined to dangle. Houris dwell in palaces of splendid surroundings.
Here are some incredible stuff in heaven waiting for Mumeen Muslims.
Book by the great Imam Ghazzali: Ihya Uloom Ed-Din. The Sunnis consider this epic as next to Quran.
Volume 4, Page-4.430
"According to Prophet Muhammad (SW) the Hurs of Paradise will be pure women-free of menstruation, urine, stool, cough and children. The Hurs will sing in Paradise on divine purity and praise-we are most beautiful Hurs and we are for the honored husbands.
Muhammad said that an inmate of Paradise will have the sexual strength of 70 men. Muhammad said, "An inmate of Paradise will have 500 Hurs, 4,000 unmarried women and 8,000 widowed women. Each of them will keep embracing him for the duration of his whole worldly life."
Muhammad said, "If an inmate of Paradise will wish to have a son born to him, he will get it. It stays in womb, its weaning away from milk and its youth will come to pass at the same time." Muhammad said, "The inmates of Paradise will be beardless and hairless. Their color will be white and their eyes painted with collyrium. They will be youth of 33 years of age. They will be sixty cubits long and seven cubits broad."
More good stuff from the famous book of Imam Ghazali (Ihya Uloom Ed-Din)
Who will go to paradise first?
(P1.117; P.1.149-150; p.1.181)
It is compulsory to believe in Paradise and Hell. Unconditional Paradise is assured for him who works as an Imam in a mosque. A Muazzin (crier of prayer) will enter Paradise unconditionally after his service of forty years. Your Imam is the representative of God on your behalf. An Imam stands between God and His servants. Pray behind an Imam to enter Paradise. You can knock at the door of Paradise through fasting.
Muhammad said, 'The poor refugees will enter Paradise five hundred years before the rich refugees. The poor believers will enter Paradise before the rich believers. They will be engaged in enjoyment of food and drink when the rich will remain down on their knees. God will say, "I have got questions to ask you: You have wielded power over men. You were kings and rulers over them. Now inform me what actions have you done with the gifts I gave you."' [Key factor why Muslims all over the world are damn poor].
Muhammad said, "Those who will be the chiefs in Paradise among the believers are those who could not procure their night meal after morning meal, who did not get any loan when asked for, who had no cloth except what they got to cover their shame and who could not procure even their necessary things, yet they were satisfied with their Lord at all times. They were those persons on whom God showered His blessing-the prophets, the truthful, the martyrs and the religious people." [Key factor why Muslims all over the world are damn poor].
Muhammad said, "Shall I not inform you of the dwellers of Paradise?-every weak and neglected man. If he is given oath in the name of God, makes him to fulfill it. Shall I not inform you of the inmates of Hell?-every proud, haughty and harsh man."
Muhammad said, "Those who are disheveled in hair, dust ridden, dressed in torn and tattered clothes, hated by people, those who are not given permission to go to the ruler when prayed for, who are not given girls in marriage when sought, who are not heard when they talk, whose wants and complaints are extinguished in their minds--they are the dwellers of Paradise. If their light is distributed among the people on the Resurrection Day, it would be sufficient for them." [Key factor why Muslims all over the world are damn poor].
(p.4.294; p.4.321; p.4.353)
Muhammad said that, "during the resurrection day God will provide wings to group of his followers; they will fly to Paradise with the help of those wings. This was due to their devotion to God when they spent their time in solitude." Muhammad also said, "He who keeps sitting in a mosque will meet God. If anyone seeks Paradise, he should not sleep at night; he who fears God takes rest at dawn. If you suffer from epilepsy you will go to paradise. There are two Paradises of silver utensils and two Paradises of Gold utensils. A Houri will fill the heaven and earth with light and scent and a martyr (Jihadist) would like to come back and be killed again and again."
Shape of the heaven and it's surroundings
Paradise has 8 doors. He who prayed will be called from the door of prayer. He who paid zakat will be called from the door of zakat. He who fought will be called from the door of jihad.
Sahih Bukhari; No. 1214:
Narrated by Syed Ibn Abu Moryam (ra): "Prophet Muhammad (SW) said, the heaven will have eight doors and one of the door is named as "Riayaaan" through which only those who are fasting during Ramadhan will enter the heaven."
(Ihya Uloom Ed-Din: 3.50.896; 4.52.48; 4.54.465; 4.54.466; 4.54.474)
Knowing 99 names of Allah will lead one to Paradise... Paradise has one hundred grades; Al-firdous is the highest grade... Muhammad saw Umar's palace in Paradise-A tent in Paradise is like a tent of hollow pearl thirty miles wide and sixty miles in height.
(Ihya Uloom Ed-Din: 6.60.7; 6.60.402; 6.60.403; 7.70.555; 9.93.536; 4.52.53)
The first food in Paradise will be caudite (tail) lobe of fish lever. In Paradise there is a pavilion made of a single hollow pearl sixty miles wide, each corner has wives for enjoyment. There is a huge tree in Paradise that takes a rider 100 years to travel its shade.
The Blackstone (of Ka'ba) is a jewel from Paradise. It will be raised on the resurrection day. It will have two eyes and one tongue with which it will speak. It will bear for everyone who kissed it and testified its truth. Allah made Ka'ba 2 000 years before He created Adam.
Kissing of Black Stone is like kissing the hand of God. Muhammad said: "The Black Stone is the right Hand of God in the World. As a man handshakes with his brother so God handshakes with the people buy means of Black Stone."
Every verse of the Qur'an is a door of Paradise and a light of your house. The mutual lovers of Allah will live on the long pillars of red emeralds. There will be 70, 000 rooms in that pillar. From those rooms they will peep at the inmates of Paradise.
Classes/grades of Islamic heavens
Just as there are many classes of hotels such as: two stars, three stars, four stars and five stars with various luxurious style and amenities to enjoy by the occupants; Islamic heavens are also of different classes and grades ready (by Allah SWT) for different classes of Mumin musalman who are bound to occupy them according to their respective pious achievements on earth, especially the number of kaffirs they have killed by suicide bombings and Islamic beheadings. Below are some classes of heavens:
Prophet Muhammad (SW) said, "The lowest rank of an inmate of Paradise will have eighty thousand servants and seventy-two wives."
Sahih Muslim: 1.0363; 20.4690, 4691
The lowest ranking people of paradise receive 10 times of what they desire; the highest ranking people of paradise will be hand-picked by Allah; Allah will reward them with bounties which no eye has ever seen, no ear has heard and no human mind has perceived. Two-third of booty for the jihadists will be paid in paradise, they will get one-third in this world. If they do not get any booty in this world then they will get full reward hereafter.
(Ihya Uloom Ed-Din: 40.6792, 6788, 32.6222, 6223, 6224; 30.5702)
The water in Paradise will be whiter than milk and sweeter than honey and the two streamlets will be made of gold and silver. The gates of paradise are opened on Monday's and Thursdays and records are checked on every Thursdays and Fridays. The inmates of paradise will look to the upper apartments of paradise just like we see planets in the sky. There is a street in paradise to which there will be an assembly and the North wind will scatter fragrance and there will have added luster, beauty and loveliness. [Only Islamic Allah and his prophet know how in the world there should be day and night, or Thursday and Fridays! Will there be a Sun and Moon rotating around the heaven too?]
(Ihya Uloom Ed-Din: 40.6797, 6798; 40.6800; 40.6802; 40.6808; 41.6998)
The inhabitants of paradise will eat and drink but they will not spit, urinate, defecate nor suffer catarrh; their sweat will be musk-The inhabitants of paradise will digest food in the form of belching-In paradise none will be a destitute nor any clothes will wear out; every one will be youthful-Some people in paradise will have hearts like those of birds-The earth of paradise is like white shining musk.
It is quite evident from the Quran and Sahih hadiths that Islamic heaven is full of lusts and earthly greed which had been formulated by Prophet Muhammad himself only to lure Arab Bedouin to join his venture of plundering, killing, rapping innocent Arab pagans and others who refused to believe his weird religion of Allah. Prophet Muhammad was extremely intelligent, cruelest, and very cunning human being indeed! He realized very well that to materialize his narcissistic dream, he needed to incite/energized Bedouin illiterate and desperately vagabond poor Arabs to unite and fight his enemy the Pagans and Jews.
He understood very well, as to, what could be the crucial objects/materials that will be most attractive to those Pagan Arabs. He knew that Arabs are inherently sex maniac and wine lovers which are historically true. In the Arab desert environment-water was another most precious commodity which no Arabs could refuse or neglect to get. Prophet Muhammad's clever creation and wishful description of heavenly pleasures (which he also copied from other religions like Zoroastrian and Hinduism) did not miss any of the above most important and most attractive items to lure Bedouin Arabs. In fact, those poor, illiterate, Vagabond Arab Bedouin were simply mesmerized by the incredible lustful description of heavenly houries, wine, foods, and luxurious life style in the heaven.
Most important driving force behind their craze was war booties: sex with those beautiful young ladies of defeated pagans, wine, and other earthly goods which most Bedouin Arabs could not even dream in their entire life. As a result they were totally fearless fighters and wanted to die in a hurry in order to achieve those incredible heavens in the after life. This was the key factor which brought Prophet Muhammad's victory after victory over the Arab Pagans.
Without a question Prophet Muhammad used his most cunning mindsets to create most dangerous and horrendously cruel punishments in his weird Islamic hells (a separate essay will be written on Islamic hell later) which equally kept all Pagan Arabs totally in panic and subdued. The fear of hell fire, and unlimited greed for lustful heavenly pleasures were the most important driving force which has kept most pagan Arabs totally tamed to the Prophet Muhammad's wishful mission of establishing Islam. Even today, the same fear of hellfire and greed of lustful heavens are the most important and primary elements (Opium) which is keeping almost 1 Billion human beings not only subdued or numb, but devoid of any norm, or human sense.
