In the Quran: What Allah will say to those who merit Paradise?

The Bible talks about an interesting usage for the Apple; it says that the Apple could refresh the one who is sick with love.  The Noble Quran does not mention the Apple but it talks about the fruits in general.  The Quran says: for those who merit Paradise, i.e. the inhabitants of Paradise, they have different kinds of fruit therein and, therein, they have whatever they ask or call for, they have whatever they desire or wish for.

 

====================================

 

The Apple in the Bible

 

In the Bible King Solomon says in his Song:

I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys.

As a lily among brambles, so is my love among the young women.

As an apple tree among the trees of the forest, so is my beloved among the young men. With great delight I sat in his shadow, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.

He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.

Sustain me with grape-cakes; refresh me with apples, for I am sick with love.

His left hand is under my head, and his right hand embraces me!

Upon reading this Biblical song, one may ask if the Bible is a book that teaches the religion or a book that teaches the private hot issues happening between men and women!

In the Noble Quran, the great Prophet King Solomon does not say such a song.

--------------------------------------

 

Song of Solomon 2:1-6 in four different versions of the Bible:

 

New International Version

1 I am a rose of Sharon,  a lily of the valleys.

2 Like a lily among thorns  is my darling among the maidens.

3 Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest is my lover among the young men. I delight to sit in his shade, and his fruit is sweet to my taste.

4 He has taken me to the banquet hall,  and his banner over me is love.

5 Strengthen me with raisins, refresh me with apples, for I am faint with love.

6 His left arm is under my head, and his right arm embraces me.

 

American Standard Version

1 I am a rose of Sharon, A lily of the valleys.

2 As a lily among thorns, So is my love among the daughters.

3 As the apple-tree among the trees of the wood, So is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, And his fruit was sweet to my taste.

4 He brought me to the banqueting-house, And his banner over me was love.

5 Stay ye me with raisins, refresh me with apples; For I am sick from love.

6 His left hand is under my head, And his right hand doth embrace me.

 

King James Version

1I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.

2As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters.

3As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.

4He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.

5Stay me with flagons, comfort me with apples: for I am sick of love.

6His left hand is under my head, and his right hand doth embrace me.

 

Young's Literal Translation

1As a lily among the thorns,

2So [is] my friend among the daughters!

3As a citron among trees of the forest, So [is] my beloved among the sons, In his shade I delighted, and sat down, And his fruit [is] sweet to my palate.

4He hath brought me in unto a house of wine, And his banner over me [is] love,

5Sustain me with grape-cakes, Support me with citrons, for I [am] sick with love.

6His left hand [is] under my head, And his right doth embrace me.

The Apple in the Quran

 

The Noble Quran does not mention the Apple but it talks about the fruits in general.  The Quran says: for those who merit Paradise, they have different kinds of fruit therein and, therein, they have whatever they ask or call for, they have whatever they desire or wish for.

Verses 36: 55-58 talk about the fruits in the afterlife for those who merit Paradise i.e. the inhabitants of Paradise.

--------------------------------------

 

The meaning of verse 36: 55

Indeed, this day which is the Day of Judgment, those who merit Paradise i.e. the inhabitants of Paradise are busy; they are delighting in pleasures; they are not tiring with anything wearisome, as there is no toil in Paradise; they are blissful and rejoicing in comfort.

 

The meaning of verse 36: 56

For those who merit Paradise, i.e. the inhabitants of Paradise, they and their wives are in pleasant shade; in other words, no sunlight affects them. They and their wives are on thrones reclining; reclining upon couches (the word couches in Arabic is pronounced as "Ara’ik", which is the plural of ar?ka.  Ar?ka is a bed inside a curtained canopy, or the bedding therein on thrones reclining)

 

The meaning of verse 36: 57

For those who merit Paradise, i.e. the inhabitants of Paradise, they have different kinds of fruit therein and, therein, they have whatever they ask or call for, they have whatever they desire or wish for.

 

The meaning of verse 36: 58

For those who merit Paradise, i.e. the inhabitants of Paradise, Allah, the Lord of the worlds will greet them with the word "Peace"; they are greeted with the greeting of peace!   In other words, Allah, the Merciful Lord will say to them, ‘Peace be on you!’

Verses 36: 55-58 of the Noble Quran in four different translations:

 

Verse 36: 55

QARIB: indeed, the companions of the garden are this day busy in their rejoicing.

SHAKIR: surely the dwellers of the garden shall on that day be in an occupation quite happy

PICKTHAL: lo! those who merit paradise this day are happily employed,

YUSUFALI: verily the companions of the garden shall that day have joy in all that they do;

 

Verse 36: 56

QARIB: together with their spouses, they shall recline on couches in the shade.

SHAKIR: they and their wives shall be in shades, reclining on raised couches

PICKTHAL: they and their wives, in pleasant shade, on thrones reclining;

YUSUFALI: they and their associates will be in groves of (cool) shade, reclining on thrones (of dignity);

 

Verse 36: 57

QARIB: they shall have fruits and all that they call for.

SHAKIR: they shall have fruits therein, and they shall have whatever they desire

PICKTHAL: theirs the fruit (of their good deeds) and theirs (all) that they ask;

YUSUFALI: (every) fruit (enjoyment) will be there for them; they shall have whatever they call for;

 

Verse 36: 58

QARIB: peace, a saying from the most merciful lord.

SHAKIR: peace: a word from a merciful lord

PICKTHAL: the word from a merciful lord (for them) is: peace!

YUSUFALI: "peace!" - a word (of salutation) from a lord most merciful!
