From Shakir Shahid

Ramadan al Mubarak,
I’d like to know what it actually
indicates by the word ‘Jannat un
For example, In Quran al Kareem,
”Waj’alni min warasati Jannatin
That is a prayer of Prophet
Ibrahim(peace be upon him).
Again i found in Salawat Iksir
Azam by Sultan al awliya Sheikh
Qadir Jilani invoking blessings,
”Allahumma salli ala Sayyidina wa
Nabiyyina Muhammadin salatan
tudkhiluna biha ‘Jannatin
Na’eem’-e bila hisab.”

My point of question is:
Jannatul Firdous is the grandest and best jannat. Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam taught to ask for Jannatul Firdous. But here i found supplications are made for Jannatun Nai’eem!

    Raghib Al-Isfahani
    Mufradat Alfaz Al-Qur’an (dictionary of Qur’anic terms)

    JANNA means to cover or cloak something to conceal it from any detection. Spells Jim+Nun+Nun (Mushad-dada)

    Janna-t ending with additional letter Ha-ta female gendered means any botanical region covered by trees i.e. canopy of tree tops hiding what is underneath.

    It is used in plural Jannaa-t Jim+Nun+Nun+Alif+Ha-ta since these structures resembling our tree-topped forests are quite a few e.g. Firdaus, Adn, Naim (as you mentioned), Dar Al-Khuld, Ma’waa, Dar Al-Salaam and ‘illiyyin

  2. Thank you for such a beautiful analysis.
    However,i think i need to clarify my point.
    Jannatul Firdous is the Grandest of all eight paradises. So,all prophets and awliya will reside there. But here i see Hadrat Ibrahim (alaihi wa sallam) asking to be the Heir of Jannatun Na’eem. In some hadith,we find Our Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) dreamt his house as white cloud.

  3. Salam,Sir.

    Recently i’ve come accross many articles and talks on Consciousness. Many scientist have found reasons enough to research on that subject and human brain is not the tool for being conscious.

    I guess Consciousness/Mind is that very entity i.e. Aql. I’d be grateful if you provide your opinion and suggestions.

    Second question is,what the relation between Aql and Ruh? Thank you.

    1. Salaam Sir

      I need to look at my notes and some books to respond properly.

      Meanwhile I want to see what you keep appearing in the comments, can’t you actually post a new discussion?
