Hadith Explanation

A Tent in Jannah

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “A tent (in Jannah) is like a hollow pearl which is thirty miles in height. On every corner of the tent the believer will have a family that cannot be seen by the others.” [Bukhari]

A believer might feel like going on a camping trip in Jannah to survey some of the beautiful land that he is owner of. That trip will be very comfortable for him. No cramped tents with barely enough room to sleep but luxurious dwellings and restful quarters.

Tents will be as beautiful as pearls but huge in size. Their height will be thirty miles (some ahadith state sixty) while their width will be sixty miles from each side. [Muslim] The believer will easily be able to take all his families along with him and stay in the tent without any of them even noticing the presence of the others.
