Hadith Explanation

The Market of Jannah

Allah’s Messenger (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “In Jannah there is a street to which they (the inhabitants of Jannah) will come every Friday. The north wind will blow and will scatter fragrance on their faces and on their clothes. This will add to their beauty and loveliness. Then they will go back to their family after having an added luster to their beauty and loveliness, and their family will say to them, ‘By Allah, you have been increased in beauty and loveliness after leaving us.’ They (the ones who had been scattered with fragrance) will say, ‘By Allah, you have also increased in beauty and loveliness after us.’” [Muslim]

The markets of the world are such that one returns tired, disheveled, hot and dirty – in general, in a worse shape than that in which they set out. A trip to the market of Jannah, on the other hand, will not decrease but increase a person’s appeal, looks, and well being. When they return they will find their family members, likewise, also having increased in loveliness.
