Tent of Pearl

Abu Bakr b. Abdullah b. Qais reported on the authority of his father that Allaah’s Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said that in Paradise there would be for a believer a tent of a single hollowed pearl the breadth of which would be sixty miles. It would be meant for a believer and the believers would go around it and none would be able to see the others. (Muslim, 6804)

    Good News for the Believers of Eternal Delight.

    In the Two Sahihs, it is recorded that Abu Musa, `Abdullah bin Qays Al-Ash`ari said (Two gardens, their pots and whatever is in them are made of gold, and two gardens, their pots and whatever is in them are made of silver. Only the Veil of Pride of Allah’s Face separates the people from gazing at Him, in the garden of Eden.) He also narrated that the Messenger of Allah said,
    (For the believer in Paradise there is a tent like a hollow pearl which is sixty miles high in the sky, and in the tent the believer will have (so large) a family that he visits them all and some of them would not be able to see the others. ) The Two Sahihs collected this Hadith.
    It is recorded in the Two Sahihs that Abu Hurayrah said that the Messenger of Allah said, (Whoever believes in Allah and His Messenger, offers prayer perfectly and fasts the month of Ramadan, will rightfully be granted Paradise by Allah, no matter whether he emigrates in Allah’s cause, or remains in the land where he is born.) The people said, "O Allah’s Messenger! Shall we acquaint the people with this good news” He said, (Paradise has one-hundred grades which Allah has prepared for the Mujahidin who fight in His cause, the distance between each two grades is like the distance between the heaven and the earth. So, when you ask Allah, ask Him for Al-Firdaws which is the best and highest part of Paradise, from it gush forth the rivers of Paradise and above it is the `Arsh (Throne) of the Beneficent.)
