Surah as-Saffat (Those Lined Up) 37 : 41
1. Lessons/Guidance/Reflections/Gems[ edit ]
This is happiness pure and perfect, combining all that is enjoyable, physically and spiritually. Everyone finds in it whatever they want of happiness. To start with, the people enjoying this happiness are God’s true servants, a description that signifies they are held in high regard. They are also ‘honoured’ among those on high, and this is the highest honour. They have ‘fruit’ and they sit ‘on soft couches facing one another.’ They will be served so that they need not exert any effort for anything.
