Mission of the Messengers-VI
[Al-Qur'an 20:120] Then whispered to him Shaitaan, he said, "O Adam! Shall I direct you to (the) tree (of) the Eternity and a kingdom not (that will) deteriorate?"
The desire for Immortality and A Kingdom that Never Decays overcame Adam’s sense of duty, and thus, Satan was able to mislead Adam into not keeping his covenant with God. Thus, Adam erred! It appears that the same story is repeatedly played out every time human civilizations advance in worldly knowledge and power.
[Al-Qur'an 2:81] Yes, whoever earned evil and surrounded him with his sins - [so] those (are the) companions (of) the Fire; they in it (will) abide forever.
While Immortality is decreed for the Hereafter, the quality of life in the Gardens is in sharp contrast to that of the Fire. Interestingly, the descriptions of the Gardens reiterated throughout the Quran seem quite close to the modern understanding of the essential requirement for life, and for maintaining a good quality of life, such as water, honey, no direct sunlight, neither excessive cold nor heat...
[Al-Qur'an 47:15] A parable (of) Paradise which is promised (to) the righteous. Therein (are) rivers of water not polluted, and rivers of milk not changes its taste, and rivers of wine delicious for (the) drinkers, and rivers of honey purified, and for them therein of all fruits and forgiveness from their Lord like he who (will) abide forever in the Fire and they will be given to drink water boiling so it cuts into pieces their intestines.
[Al-Qur'an 76:13,14] Reclining therein on couches. Not they will see therein sun and not freezing cold. And near above them (are) its shades and will hang low its cluster of fruits dangling low.
[Al-Qur'an 76:20] And when you look, then you will see blessings and a kingdom great.
[Al-Qur'an 4:56]Indeed, those who disbelieved in Our Signs, soon We will burn them (in) a Fire. Every time are roasted their skins We will change their skins for other (than) that, so that they may the punishment. Indeed, Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise.
[Al-Qur'an 44:43 - 44:50] Verily the tree of Zaqqum Will be the food of the Sinful,- Like molten brass; it will boil in their insides. Like the boiling of scalding water. (A voice will cry: "Seize ye him and drag him into the midst of the Blazing Fire! "Then pour over his head the Penalty of Boiling Water, "Taste thou (this)! Truly wast thou mighty, full of honour! "Truly this is what ye used to doubt!"
[Al-Qur'an 56:41-44 ... 56:52-55] The Companions of the Left Hand,- what will be the Companions of the Left Hand? (They will be) in the midst of a Fierce Blast of Fire and in Boiling Water, And in the shades of Black Smoke: Nothing (will there be) to refresh, nor to please: ...
... "Ye will surely taste of the Tree of Zaqqum. "Then will ye fill your insides therewith, "And drink Boiling Water on top of it: "Indeed ye shall drink like diseased camels raging with thirst!" Such will be their entertainment on the Day of Requital!
