Paradise: English poem by Mir Jamid Afzal

Whatever we do, we’ll pay the price
In the depths of hell or in paradise

For the believer, this life is just like a cage
For the unbeliever, it’s the ultimate stage

Little does he know about the awaiting reward
Which is full of luxuries, where no-one gets bored

You’ll enter the gate of paradise, if it’s in your fate
Your deeds and actions will determine by which gate

No worldly things will you ever miss
On entering the gate, you’ll be surrounded by bliss

Four rivers will be granted by the Divine
Containing water and milk, honey and wine

People will live in mansions built high
Where they’ll live forever, no-one will die

Its bricks will be made of silver and gold
The climate will be perfect, not hot and not cold

A hundred years it will take to circle a tree
Surrounded by loved ones for all eternity

There will be no calls of nature, no-one will sleep
There will be no worries, no one will weep

When people sweat, it will smell of musk
Allah (SWT) will be praised from dawn till dusk

Everyone will be aged 30 or 33
And they’ll stay at that age for eternity

The inhabitants will be wearing a beautiful green gown
Sitting on thrones, wearing a crown

People will be happy, there’ll be no remorse
To visit others, they’ll have a flying horse

Men will have two hours as their wives
Who will remain with them for the rest of their lives

On Friday there will be a dinner for people of all races
And a bazaar where people can exchange their faces!

When walking along there’ll be many meetings
With prophets and angels, exchanging greetings

Such is the ecstasy that will then prevail
When Allah (SWT) removes His veil

There will be no kings, there will be no peasants
And everyone will see the Divine Allah’s presence

There are 100 levels to paradise and we should pray
That Al Firdaus, the highest will be where we stay

Allah (SWT) has showered us with His grace
And we have to be worthy to show our face

Whatever we do ,we’ll pay the price
In the depths of hell or in paradise

Mir Jamid Afzal hails from Amlar Tral in South Kashmir.
