بسم الله الرحمان الرحيم

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته

الحمد الله

Allāh سبحانه و تعالى tells us about the people of Jannaħ, that delight would be apparent from their faces,

تَعْرِفُ فِي وُجُوهِهِمْ نَضْرَةَ النَّعِيمِ

“You will recognise in their faces the brightness of delight.” [83:24]

Imām al-Māwardī رحمه الله writes in his tafsīr, An-Nakat wal-cUyūn, regarding the meaning of nacīm or delight as mentioned in the translation,

“First: It is the freshness and comfort, said Ibn Shajaraħ رحمه الله

Second: It is the whiteness, said aḍ-Ḍaḥḥāk رحمه الله

Third: It is a spring in Paradise from which they will perform wuḍū’ and wash themselves which will bring upon them the brightness of delight, said cAlī رحمه الله.”

So the people of Paradise will be happy and their delight would be evident from their brightened faces. And this will be because they prepared and worked for the Paradise and earned it by Allāh سبحانه و تعالى being merciful to them.

May Allāh سبحانه و تعالى make us amongst these people. Amīn
