“There will be for them therein all that they wish and more besides in Our Presence.” (Qaf, 35) According to this verse, is Paradise limited? Why is it said ‘more besides in Our presence’?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

There will be for them therein all that they wish and more besides in Our Presence. (Qaf, 35)

In the verse, it is said as follows: “there will be more besides in Our presence.” Humans demand benefactions and want to have things that lead to happiness according to their ability of knowing and understanding given to them in the world. However, spiritual benefactions that will make humans happy in the eternal life will not be limited like what is known, thought and dreamt of in the world life. In Paradise, there will be things that lead to prosperity such as “ridwan(a state of perfection and pleasure caused by God’s acceptance; His declaration of His consent) and “Ruyatullah” – (seeing God beyond any imaginable attributes or qualities.)
