43-THe Corporeal And Incorporeal Rewards

43_ THE CORPOREAL AND INCORPOREAL REWARDS
WE BELIEVE that the rewards in Hereafter are corporeal as well as incorporeal; (i.e. SPIRITUAL) because the resurrection is Spiritual as well as PHYSICAL.

Whatever is written in the HOLY QUR?N about the fruitful Gardens in paradise with streams flowing beneath its trees (S9: 89) with perpetual foods and shades, (S13: 35) and the beautiful clean wives there in, with whom they marry (S3: 15), and also about the penalty and punishments in hell, and that burning fire, are all evidences that the rewards there are corporeal.

And more important are the SPIRITUAL rewards that are promised the faithful believer, such as being near to God, and seeing the manifestations of God's GLORY and beuty. These are among the pleasures that no eyes has seen and no tongue can describe.

Some of the verses in    QUR?N that denote the material bounties and Graces of God in the Paradise, end with phrases like:_ THE PLEASURE OF ALLAH:_

"But the greatest of all the blisses, is the PLEASURE of God which is the supreme FELICITY."

THE HOLY QUR?N _ S9: 72

There is not an enjoyment higher for a man THAN SEEING that he is accepted by his LORD, and God is pleased with him!

A tradition is narrated by Emam Zeinol?bedin saying, ''God will say to those in Paradise:_ 'My love and pleasure for you is far above the bounties with which you live in FELICITY.' ''(1)

What a pleasure can be higher for a man who is addressed by his LORD that:_

"O,YOU SERENE SOUL! Return to your LORD! joyful, and pleasing in his sight. Enter My Paradise and join My Servants."

THE HOLY QUR?N _ S89: 27_30
