To true believer : What`s the meaning of paradise ? freedom to choose

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: X RATED JANNAT (Paradise) of ISLAM

Submitted by Nuray (Germany), May 25, 2006 at 14:49

What is wrong if unlimited pleasure in paradise is promised in Quran? What should be promised? Unlimited wine, sex etc. is not a big deal in ordinary parties in Western societies. What should be promised to them in heaven who knows? Perhaps nothing. They will get bored in paradise.

My life is also paradise in my eyes. I have freedom to choose.I do what I want to do. There are some restrictions due to my religion. I can not do whatever I want. I have to be patient. If I prove myself someone who has complete power over human desires I will be allowed to have unlimited pleasure in paradise. It is a good deal.

Definition of paradise changes from one person to another. I wish I could continue developing software programs in heaven but who would need there :-). As you see getting gifts from Allah in paradise does not mean much but being a good person according to Quran is invaluable. Having love of Allah in Muslim hearts is biggest gift from Allah. We can´t love Allah if Allah does not allow it to happen.

I want to live life as Allah wishes. This is my own choice. Does it sound an action of an true believer? Exactly.
